Himalayan Pink salt is one of the purest salts available for culinary, therapeutic and cosmetic uses. It has beautifully formed crystals ranging in color from off-white to a lustrous pink hand-mined salt, derived from ancient sea salt deposits, and believed to be the purest form of salt. Regular consumption of Himalayan Pink salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, and increases circulation.
