All of the glorious reasons we love Himalayan Pink Salt!
Himalayan Pink salt is one of the purest salts available for culinary, therapeutic and cosmetic uses. This luxurious and delectable salt has beautifully formed crystals which range in color from off-white to a lustrous pink. Himalayan Pink salt is a pure, hand-mined salt that is derived from ancient sea salt deposits, and it is believed to be the purest form of salt available. Himalayan Pink salt was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Jurassic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. Historically, the people of the Himalayas used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade. Himalayan Pink salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun. Mountain Rose Herbs
