Himalayan salt is one of the most magical and versatile minerals for everything from seasoning your food, to a deep relaxing bath, to even cleaning your teeth. It’s becoming an ever-popular mineral these days, and you can find it for sale in most highstreet supermarkets.
In regards to its composition, pink Himalayan salt does have more health-enhancing minerals than regular sea salt. Himalayan salt has all 84 essential trace elements required by your body, while sea salt cannot make the same claim.
Himalayan salt is typically mined from the deposits in the Himalayas, which are miles deep and much higher than the sea level. The process of mining is arduous and can take months before a sufficient amount of crystals are ready to be harvested. In the meantime, it’s mixed with other minerals to produce a mineral mixture that’s exactly what a person would use for their own kitchen countertop or for making their own salt bath.
This unique crystal and temperature sensitive mineral salts have many benefits and are used extensively as a source of the highly sought after white salt crystals. The minerals found in this mineral have an amazing ability to absorb light, heat and other energy forms. When exposed to light or to heat, the water molecules carrying the salt crystals becomes “naked” which makes it possible for them to absorb the energy forms that would otherwise escape or be wasted. The crystals can also absorb the light or heat from candles and lamps because of their high absorbing power.
Adding Himalayan salt to food can enhance the taste and texture of a dish and can even add flavor without the need to add actual seasoning to the food. You can also make the salt scents at home and put these scents into fragrances to create the perfect fragrance for any situation.
A unique part of this mineral is its ability to create body scents that are truly wonderful. Many individuals are currently using this mineral to create bath salts and body soaps to give themselves a delectablespa experience. Himalayan salt creates a unique fragrance that is made for the body and bath area that is soothing and invigorating.
As a natural water softener and de-mineralizer, the salt works very well to cleanse the bath. It’s wonderful for whitening laundry as well as removing stains. It also gives the room a special and refreshing feel. Because it has a clean and refreshing effect, it can be used in any type of water, from bath water to running water in your shower to your outdoor garden hose and any other form of water you may wish to use.
Finally, it can be used to replace some of the calcium and magnesium present in our body from foods and drinking water. It can actually dissolve plaque which can occur in between teeth. Not only can it help clean the teeth, but it can help prevent future cavities, as well. This means it can go a long way in improving overall oral health and preventing the onset of tooth decay.
So as you’ve learned Himalayan salt has many health benefits you can enjoy for just a few dollars for a salt shaker that can last two or three months.
