Detoxification – Even though it is traditionally consumed with food, the impressive mineral profile of Himalayan salt is great for external detoxification.
Furthermore, the Himalayan salt bath is very beneficial as well; the minerals and negative ions it contains can easily penetrate the skin, producing a detoxifying and cleansing effect, thus rejuvenating your skin. Himalayan salt also has a positive effect on our air.
This can be proved by the fact that all reputable salt lamps are made using Himalayan salt rather than sea salt or table salt; the negative ions it contains bind to the positive ions in the air, thus neutralizing and cleansing it from pollutants.
You can buy Himalayan salt in almost every health food store or online. It is usually sold as fine or coarse grains.
We recommend fine-grained Himalayan salt because the small crystals are easier to include into most meals. When buying your salt, make sure to check that it has a pink color. This is a sign that the salt is rich in minerals!
