Himalayan pink salt is no longer a “hidden secret.” Found one of the most beautiful (and highest) mountain ranges, it has been prized for its healing and restorative powers tracing back to ancient times. Himalayan salt is packed with incredible benefits such as supporting weight loss, detox, and balanced hormones. You can even use it in your home improve air quality.
Minerals & Energy
Himalayan salt is widely touted for its mineral content, containing 84 minerals in total. In addition to sodium, Himalayan salt is relatively high in magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, potassium, iron and chloride. It also contains traces of boron, fluoride, iodine, zinc, selenium and copper, all of which are necessary for bodily health. As a naturally occurring salt, Himalayan salt contains all these minerals without chemical processing or refinement. Because it is harvested naturally, Himalayan salt’s mineral benefits are available regardless of what form the salt is consumed as. Himalayan salt is most commonly found as coarse grains, fine grains, or large blocks, which can be used as serving platters that delicately “season” the food they serve.
Himalayan Salt is unique cellular structure – it stores vibrational energy. The minerals in this salt exist in colloidal form, which means that they are small enough for our cells to easily absorb.

Salt Lamps and Air Purification
Salt air contains negative ions that accelerate our ability to absorb oxygen and balances levels of serotonin, as well as having anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
How They Work:
Himalayan pink salt lamps are large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. The salt absorbs water and particles from the air and takes positive ions with them. The heated salt releases cleansed water vapor and expels negative ions back in to the air.
Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge; they can be neutralized by negative ions. They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation. In addition, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.
