Named as one of the purest salts in the world, Himalayan Salts are a perfect source of natural minerals.
Its detoxifying powers can help the body both internally and externally to be the best it can possibly be, by flushing out toxins and bad bacteria from your body.
Below we uncover the history of Himalayan Salts and list how they can benefit you.
What is Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan Salt was formed from ancient unpolluted seas in Pakistan, which evaporated due to the tectonic plates shifting and creating the Himalayas.
The salt is famous for its unique pink colouring, which is caused by the high level of iron found naturally within the salt. The salts contain a staggering 84 minerals needed by the body, such as magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and chloride. Traces of boron, fluoride, iodine, zinc, selenium and copper can also be found in Himalayan Salts. To say they’re bursting with minerals is an understatement!
Where are they sourced?
The Himalayas. They are the tallest mountains in the world, spanning 2,400 km across Asia and based at the joining of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates.
250 million years ago though, it used to be a primordial sea where underneath existed a perfect pristine ecosystem. As the plates of the earth moved over time, it pushed the Himalayas out of the sea, revealing all of its life-sustaining minerals crystallised under the heat of the sun, creating what we now know as Himalayan Pink Salt.
What are the benefits?
A bath filled with Himalayan Bath Salts can help to cleanse and detoxify your entire body. With all 84 minerals working together within the warm water, the Himalayan Salts can:
