Himalayan Salt has originated from the Himalayan Mountains over 250 million years ago which means it is incredibly pure. Himalayan salt contains over 80 minerals, including Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium.
It creates a calming and relaxing experience when adding our Himalayan Salt to your bath. We recommend ½ -1 cup (250g) for relaxation or 2-4 cups (500g-1kg) to soothe muscles. It is also said to ease pain, reduce stress, reduce fatigue, improve emotional health and leave the skin feeling smooth and revived.
The benefits of Himalayan Salt
In addition to potentially boosting our health, Himalayan pink salt can be used in lots of different ways, including these:
- Himalayan salt bath – We’ve mentioned this in the benefits above, but it’s worth mentioning again, as Himalayan salt baths are a popular thing, just as popular as Epsom salt baths!
- Foot soak – If you don’t fancy bathing in Himalayan salt, you can always soak your feet in it, which can help relieve any discomfort after a long and tiring day. Add 1/8 cup of Himalayan salt to every gallon of water and soak for as long as you like.
- Natural exfoliator – Himalayan rock crystals make a great natural exfoliator.
