Himalayan Pink Salt is the purest, most mineral-beneficial salt in the world.
Far superior to white table salt (which you should never use) and even higher-quality sea salts, Himalayan pink salt contains over 84 trace minerals. These minerals include magnesium, fluoride, iodine, sodium, potassium, and zinc, to name a few.
Not only is Himalayan pink salt superior because of its vast amount of trace minerals, but it is also naturally sourced straight from the Himalayan mountain range, which runs through India, China, Nepal, and Bhutan.
Most of the Himalayan pink salt we use today is mined from ancient sea beds in the Punjab region of Pakistan. Found deep in the Himalayas, this pink salt has been unscathed by human pollution, thus making it one of the most sought-after forms of sodium for health benefits.
Aside from being an excellent source of sodium and other trace minerals when cooking and preparing food and drinks, Himalayan pink salt has several other uses that can significantly benefit your health.
These benefits include: increasing hydration, lowering blood pressure, preventing muscle cramping, improving circulation, balancing electrolytes, and many more.
How To Use It Himalayan Pink Salt
In The Bathroom
If you like to work out—and we hope you do—you have probably heard of Epsom salt baths, which treat achy muscles after rigorous workouts. It is said that the magnesium and sulfate from the salt and water mixture are absorbed into your body through your skin through a dermal absorption process.
Because Himalayan pink salt is a pure form of dense mineral sodium, it is often recommended as a replacement for Epsom salt baths for sore muscles. It is also known to aid in detoxifying through osmosis.
To Make A Pink Salt Bath Soak:
- Add 1 cup (for a regular bath) or 2-4 cups (for a super detox bath) of fine grain Himalayan pink salt to bathwater that is headed to just above body temperature.
- Get in and relax… maybe focus on your breath for a few minutes and let your mind and body be at ease.
This bath will not only relieve aching muscles but can also aid in detoxifying the body. Remember to drink plenty of water and add more cold water if you feel light-headed. If you do not have a bathtub handy, you can opt for a foot soak to absorb the benefits of Himalayan pink salt.
In Your Kitchen
Seasoning cooked and uncooked foods are the most common use for Wild Pink Salt. Our fine-grain Wild Pink Salt is the perfect grain for all-purpose seasoning.
You can also add a dash to your smoothies, shakes, and drinking water to increase the absorption of essential nutrients and help with hydration.
In Your Water
Himalayan pink salt can make sole (pronounced solar)—a mixture of water and salt intended for drinking. Drinking a sole has a host of benefits, a few of which include:
- Rehydrate after sleep
- Fast absorption of minerals that help detoxify and re-mineralize your body
- Improve digestion
- It helps regulate blood sugar levels
- Improve bone health
- And much more.
Making a sole is super easy. This is how you do it:
- Fill a mason jar with 1/3t to ¼ Wild Pink Salt.
- Add high-quality filtered water to the top.
- Cover and let sit overnight.
- If all the salt is dissolved and none is left at the bottom, you can add more salt to reach the proper dilution.
- The ideal solution for a sole is when no more salt can be dissolved in the water. (If you see tiny salt crystals at the bottom of the jar, try giving it a good shake. If they remain, you probably have the ideal ratio.)
Keep this jar covered on your counter or in your pantry. Each morning, add a TSP of sole to a glass of water and drink. This is a great way to start your day!
You can also add a dash to your smoothies and shakes; just be careful not to overdo it.
Pink Salt In Your Home
You may have seen the illuminated Himalayan pink salt lamps decorating your friends and family's homes and offices. Some believe that Himalayan pink salt produces negative ions (the same negative ions produced by moving water, lightning bolts, and sunlight), which counteract the positive ions created by electronics such as computers and televisions.
Positive ions are said to affect sleep and stress negatively. Therefore placing a Himalayan pink salt lamp in your home may neutralize positive ions and cleanse the air in your home.
While using Himalayan pink salt in your home is said to purify the air (amongst other things), this benefit has not been scientifically proven. (Although it does look fantastic!) A little salt in the home won't hurt and may even be a healthy addition to your health repertoire.
Pink Salt Is A Winner
Wild Himalayan Pink Salt is a versatile tool for improving your health, recipes, and life in more ways than one. Whether you add pink salt to your dishes, ingest it each morning via a sole mixture, or soak it up through your skin in a hot bath, the benefits of Himalayan pink salt are sure to make you a happy and happy, healthier human.
