Himalayan Crystal Salt
Salt is the most common ingredient in our food, yet we never really pause to think about it or pick the best. Is it because we think there is no choice, except in the brands? Allow us to shed some light on this and introduce you to crystal salt (better known as Original Himalayan Crystal Salt).
Crystal salt is as old as the hills and its health enhancing properties have been extolled by Charaka, (the father of Ancient Indian herbal medicine, 2000 BC). This crystal salt reflects the wholeness, richness and purity of its source in underground salt deposits in the Himalayan region. When the ancient seas evaporated, these deposits were created under great pressure during the formation of the Himalayas hundreds of millions of years ago. Protected from pollutants and impurities by nature, the salt remains unrefined, untreated and free of additives. The large salt crystals are simply cut up, rinsed with water, sun dried naturally and ground into a fine powder.
This crystal salt can also be used as bath salt.
Crystal salt was used by ancient Ayurvedic seers who found it effective against various diseases. Today, crystal salt brings you the same ancient, pollution-free yet mineral rich natural resources. Our salt is not refined as the refining process would rob salt of its natural richness. It contains no preservatives and no bleaching agents that will kill the salt’s natural taste and harm your health.
Crystal salt is 100% vegetarian unlike refined sea salt that contains putrid flesh and remains of dead animals besides organic filth. Our crystal salt is the purest form of salts and completely chemical free with no impurities. This Himalayan salt is natural and it contains 74 trace minerals imparting it several properties that make it good for health. It is low in sodium and has a longer shelf life. Other salts use artificial anti-caking agents which last barely a year. But crystal salt has natural anti-caking properties that last for years. If unused for a long time, all it takes is a light tap on the bottom of the container to give crystal salt a free flow.
