Edible Himalayan Salt

What is so special about Himalayan Pink Salt?

Unlike the table salt that has little more to offer than its salty tasty, pink salt is nutritious enough to be considered food in its own rite. Formed, through the evaporation of the water from a primordial ocean, the salt lay undisturbed for almost 250 million years, accumulating the energy of water and sun through this period. It is unadulterated and has all the minerals and elements that make up the human body.

In fact, of the 94 elements in the periodic table, save for the inert gases, all others can be found in Himalayan Pink Salt. In their natural unpolluted and unaltered state, these trace minerals are known to enhance the efficacy of several forms of remedial measures uses to treat both chronic and acute ailments. The pretty pink crystals work exceptionally well when used in conjunction with regular forms of treatment. The crystalline ink salt is a powerhouse of several essential minerals such as: Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Zinc, Iodine, Fluoride,  Sodium and Phosphorous.

Besides the fact that these elements have not been polluted by industrialization, the biggest advantage is that these minerals are present in Himalayan Salt in their colloidal form. So, they are easily absorbed by the cells in the body, when used topically, in the external environment and also when consumed.

How is Himalayan pink salt better than table salt?

There is simply no comparison in the nutritional values of the highly treated and processed regular table salt and all natural Himalayan Pink Salt. In fact, the difference in these two is as striking as that between chalk and cheese. While the pink salt is full of nutritional value, the refined salt in the dispenser on your table is nothing but sodium chloride with lots of chemicals added for good measure.

Not only do they use dangerous chemicals to remove pathogens from the sea salt in commercial production but also they use anti caking agents and bleaching products to give it the white flowy look and feel. Unfortunately, these chemicals stay back. So, the few pinches of salt that you sprinkled on your food, brings more than just a salty taste to the dish, it also puts dangerous chemicals in your system.

In striking contrast, Himalayan Pink Salt has lower sodium content than regular salt, which in itself is beneficial for people who suffer from hypertension. Additionally, you can expect loads of health advantages from all those minerals, including potassium which helps to regulate the level of fluids in the body and blood pressure.

What about sea salt, isn’t that just as good as Himalayan Salt?

The refined salt that makes its way to your dining table is sea salt albeit a highly processed version of it. There was a time when sea salt used to be nutritious but centuries of sewage disposal in oceanic waters have polluted most water bodies beyond the point where the contamination can be addressed. Yes, the last time you operated the dishwasher or the washing machine, even when you flushed the toilet, the waste was thrown into the sea.

And, this is the very water used for salt production. To kill the germs, they use harsh chemicals, heat and what not, to the point that the structure of the crystal goes through a change. The germs and contaminants do get eliminated but along with it, the disinfecting agents also strip off the nutritional value of the salt by removing all minerals from it.

In contrast, Himalayan Pink Salt has never been exposed to bio-hazardous substances or industrial chemical waste. So, there is no need to treat the pink salt with cleaning agents. What you get is the same taste and saltiness plus the numerous health advantages of all those minerals that are present in the colorful crystals of Himalayan Rock Salt. So, it would be safe to state that regular salt and even sea salt cannot hold a candle to Himalayan Pink Salt.

But, I can always buy iodine added salt, so why Himalayan Salt?

For one, the artificially added iodine does not have the same bio-availability as the colloidal version of the mineral which is found in Himalayan Pink Salt. Another factor to consider is that along with iodine, you also get 83 other minerals from pink salt, and some of these micronutrients are crucial in keeping your brain and body healthy. In fact, Iodine plays a crucial role in the function of the thyroid glands which secrete various hormones that control metabolism, heart rate, blood pressure as well as the absorption of calcium.

But, what about saltiness?

Yes, the pink salt crystals are less salty than regular refined salt but that is because of the lower levels of sodium in it. While table salt is 98% NaCl and 2% chemical additives, Himalayan Pink Salt only has 84% sodium, the remaining 16% of compound is made up of various minerals.

However, the taste of Himalayan salt is complex and unique as you don’t get an immediate hit of saltiness. Instead, the salty flavor gradually saturates your taste buds, giving the flavors of the food you are eating enough time to be registered as well. In other words, Himalayan pink salt actually makes food more flavorful and delicious.

How can Himalayan Salt be used in everyday life?

Well, although the pink crystals can be used in a plethora of ways, if you are only interested in edible Himalayan Salt, there is no reason why you should treat the colored salt crystals any different from regular table salt. Use it for a final dash of seasoning, to cure meats, to marinate sea food and for pickling.

Actually, the unique pink hues of the Himalayan Salt crystals make them more presentable than regular table salt. They sparkle and add an exciting dash of color when sprinkled on green veggies in the salad platter. However, ensure that just like regular salt, Himalayan Pink Salt too is used in moderation.

Can I expect my blood pressure to be cured?

Himalayan Salt although effective is a form of therapeutic intervention that helps to strengthen various physiological systems such as the immune and digestive functions. Although extremely potent at warding off infections, Himalayan salt is not a cure for any ailment. Yes, there are studies and ample of anecdotal evidence which supports the health benefits of pink salt.

In fact, many of our users have reported significant improvement in their health and even an increased sense of well being after using our products. Yet, we don’t claim that any of our products can be used to cure any disease.

It is well known that substituting Himalayan salt for regular salt conspicuously impacts water retention in the body. Pink salt also aids in increasing and triggering the process of osmosis in the body. As a result, your body goes into auto repair mode. Toxins are flushed out, the adipose tissue (fats) starts to melt and muscles gain strength. All of this translates to a greater ability to shed weight, marked reduction in the appearance of cellulite and greater energy.

Although Himalayan Salt does not cure hypertension, what it does is regulates the level of fluids in the body, preventing drastic fluctuations and imbalances and this does have a bearing on your blood pressure. With the continuous use of Himalayan Salt, you will cleanse your body and stabilize the fluid levels which will regulate your blood pressure.

Is Himalayan Salt Kosher?

Yes it is. The Torah dictates that crystal salt is to be used for drawing out the blood from meats. Since, Himalayan salt crystals are coarse and big enough, they have a larger surface area that gets in contact with the meat and hence it draws out more blood than regular salt. So, Himalayan salt can be used in kosher cooking.

What about the quality gradient of Himalayan Salt?

Like any other natural product, Himalayan salt too suffers from quality variations. The best salt is found the deepest in the mine. But the extraction process is both cumbersome and expensive, which is why you should only be buying from a reputed vendor. The salt crystals are sorted based on their suitability for consumption.

The finest grade salt which is usually light pink mixed with white is offered as an edible product, in the form of coarse crystals, rocks and fine powder. In contrast, the darker crystals, which can range from a dark pink, orange to a deep red are well suited for non-edible purposes and are used to make the lamps, soap bars, bathing salts and more.

All Himalayan salt products that are intended to be consumed or used for cooking, including the spice jars, serving and cooking slabs are made from edible grade Himalayan salt. Apart from seasoning, pink salt is frequently used in homeopathic preparations. Once again, only food grade salt is used for medication and even in products such as neti pots which put the salt in direct contact with mucus membranes of the throat and nose.

Edible Himalayan salt is 100% pure, so it can also be used to make natural disinfecting eye and ear drops. However, if you need to soothe your tired feet or sores on your body, the fgoot detox pads or even a soak in bath salts will do just fine.

Does Himalayan salt spoil over time?

Not, it does not as long as the edible salt and other product are kept under proper conditions. Exposure to moisture will cause deterioration. So, when storing the edible, granular Himalayan Salt, store it in an air tight container in a cool, dry place.

Why is Himalayan salt available in different colors?

There is no addition of colors or preservatives. So, the color can entirely be attributed to the mineral content of the crystals. The deeper the red of the salt crystals the higher will be the amount of certain minerals such as iron in it. For the better part, the granules are either pink or apricot which has a relatively standard content of trace elements. Hence, the deeper colored salt is seldom sold as edible and is instead used to craft lamps and other products.

Can I use a regular salt shaker with Himalayan Crystal salt?

Yes you can. However, since the granules are larger and uneven, you will have to use a salt dispenser that has large holes so that they don’t get clogged. You could also use a salt mill. But, make sure you only use mills made from porcelain. Metal parts may react with the active minerals in the salt.

What should I choose, fine or coarse Himalayan salt?

The entirely depends on how you intend to use it. As far as the mineral content and the nutritional value of the salt goes, there are no changes. We merely put the rocks through a few extra rounds of grinding to get a finer texture. Fine salt is easier to use and measure. Typically, fine pink salt will work best in the cooking and the seasoning stages while coarse salt is perfect for curing and for use with salads and fruits.

Himalayan Salt Block

Cooking with a Salt block… really?

Move aside pots and pans, the Himalayan Salt Block is here! Yes, you heard it right and it is all the rage in gourmet restaurants and even Michelin star establishments. It is the latest and by far the trendiest way to cook foods right in front of the guests, right on the table. Restaurants that don’t want to get all that adventurous use Himalayan salt blocks for serving and the effect is just as awe inspiring. And, there is absolutely no reason why you cannot enthrall your friends and family by serving the food on Himalayan salt plates, bowls and blocks at the next soiree you host.

The cooking and serving slabs are available in a range of dimension, so you are bound to find one that will suit, the type of food you want to serve and the method of cooking you want to follow. In inches, the sizes start at 8x4x2 and can go right up to 16x8x2. These artisan salt blocks are meticulously hand crafted to make them an ideal surface for cooking. The nonporous nature of Himalayan salt and the fact that the crystals retain the temperature that they are exposed to, turn the block into a cold, almost refrigerated serving platter or even a flatiron stove that can be used to sear delicious morsels of sea food and meats.

Heating and cooling the blocks is quite easy and so is cooking on them. And, no you will not be running to the over every 30 minutes to heat up the plate again. In fact, once heated, you will need to leave the serving block alone for the night so that it can cool down before it can be cleaned; that is how well the salt maintains the temperature. The food served on the salt blocks develops a complex taste as the macronutrients absorb the minerals in the salt.

When cooked on the Himalayan blocks, the meats and vegetables take on a mild saltiness that is unparalleled and simply cannot be replicated by adding the regular dash of salt to your food. Meat cooked on salt blocks has a unique texture as the proteins do not get overcooked and retain a surprisingly juicy texture. An ideal; addition to the kitchen of any person who enjoys to experiment with his/her food, salt bricks offer one of the healthiest way of cooking.

How to get the salt plate to the right temperature?

When freezing the salt plate, simply put it in a plastic bag to prevent exposure to moisture and place it in the freezer. For cooking, you can heat the salt block to the desired temperature on a gas stove, in the oven or on an electric stove.

Oven heating: Increase the temperature gradually by starting at 250 degrees and maintaining it for about 12 minutes. Then, increase the heat to 400 degrees and heat the plate for another 15 minutes before removing and using as desired. Remember, for best performance, you will have to ensure that the salt plate is hot enough.

Gas grill or stove: Place the plate on the burner directly but like with the oven start with a low flame setting and gradually increase to medium, working your way up to the highest flame setting. Hold at every level for about 7-8 minutes. So, it should take you about 20 minutes to get the plate hot.

Electric stove: Since you cannot place the slab directly on the burner, use aflame tamer. Once again start at the lowest heat setting and gradually increase the heat till you reach the max setting. You should not need more than 15-20 minutes to get the right temperature for cooking.

My Himalayan salt block broke, now what?

There can be several reasons for the breakage of your Himalayan Salt block. The slab, while tough enough to handle months after months of cooking, will not be able to sustain a fall. So, if you drop it, expect it to be in pieces. On the other hand, as you continue using the salt brick for cooking, there will come a time when the natural cracks developed due to exposure to the heat will compromise the structural integrity of the slab and lead to breakage.

Whatever the reason, don’t throw away the salt pieces. Remember, this is food grade Himalayan pink salt. So, if you have not dropped it on the floor and the slab has broken down after consistent use, pick up the pieces and store them in a jar. You can simply grind them and use them for seasoning as you would the normal Himalayan Salt crystals.

Another way is to use the salt pieces for a relaxing foot soak. Simply add a small piece to some warm water and place your feet in the solution for about 20-30 minutes. If the block was sparingly used, you could even add the pieces to your bath water. Finally, grind the pieces to get a granular consistency, place them on a cloth to make your very own Himalayan Salt heating and cooling pouch. It works wonderfully for headaches and neck pain.

For how long can I expect the Himalayan Salt slab to last?

You will be astonished by just how sturdy these salt blocks are. They can offer years of service if used and treated right. However, because the salt does get absorbed by the food, the thickness of the slab is bound to wane in time as it dissolves away. Of course, a salt block that is used exclusively for serving food will last longer than one that is used for cooking and a third that is put to use for cooking and serving. To put it simply, the more it is used and the longer the food is kept on it, the shorter will be the usable life span of the slab.

Is the Himalayan Salt slab dishwasher safe?

No, you cannot clean the salt plate like that. Try any such thing and after a single cycle in the dishwasher, you will have flushed the salt from the entire slab down the drain. The salt block will dissolve completely . Do not use any other method of cleaning the block apart from the one recommended above. Once you are done wiping the block with a damp cloth, use a paper towel to sop up any moisture on the surface.

Himalayan salt plate Vs pink salt cooking slab

Not really, the only difference is in terms of the shape of the cook/serve ware. Some of the serve ware is round while all cooking blocks are rectangular and flat. The slab is about 2 inches thick which is just right for cooking and presentation. You can use the slab for food presentation or for cooking food right at the table. We would recommend that you use a different salt block for cooking because it will lose its aesthetic appeal as it picks the colors of the food.

Himalita also offers a range of other cooking and serving products such as pink salt bowls which are ideal for a single serving of salad, mortar and pestle and one of the most in-demand offerings, the shot glasses.

OK, I am done cooking, now what?

Once done, do not rush to clean the block immediately. Instead, let it just stay on the counter, away from the sink and any source of moisture. Allow it enough time to cool down. This will take a couple of hours. The best way is to leave the salt block alone for the night. By next morning, it will be at room temperature and that is when you can start cleaning it.

How do I clean the Himalayan salt cooking slab?

If cooking on the block is simple, cleaning and maintaining the brick is even simpler. Given the fact that the surface is non porous, the juices from the food do not penetrate it. This means that you won’t have to clean the slab as much. Also, salt being a strong anti bacterial and anti fungal agent, you do not have to worry about the surface of the cooking brick getting contaminated.

However, you do need to remove any pieces of food that may be stuck to the surface. For this, all you have to do is use a metal sponge and scrub down the surface to dislodge charred food and particles of burnt salt. Follow, this with a round of wiping with a damp cloth and that is all there is to cleaning the block. If you feel that some of the food odor lingers, use a slice of lemon on the slab or a few drops of lemon juice. Rub it all over the cooking surface and then scrub it with the metal sponge.

Where should I keep the salt block when not in use?

As long as the salt block is kept in a dry area, you should have no problem. Just remember that the block is all salt and salt has an affinity for moisture. It will quickly pick up the moisture from the air and degrade. So, if you leave the salt block out in the open for long periods, you will begin to notice the first signs of damage in the form of a liquid on the surface.

As the moisture level in the air goes down, the liquid coating the surface of the slab will evaporate and in its place, you will see a layer of white crystals but this does not mean that the damage has been undone. This is a physical change that cannot be reversed. So, do not leave the salt block on the counter on the window sill or even the BBQ. Use a large zip lock pouch or any other plastic bag. Place the salt block in it and seal securely to prevent exposure to moisture. A trick is to place some uncooked rice inside the bag; the grains will absorb the moisture.

Himalayan Salt blocks, how and why should you be using them?

Of course, you cannot use the salt slab like a regular stove. It is more like an iron skillet just one that is flatter, made of salt and it holds and distributes heat like no skillet can. So, direct contact cooking food works best for the salt slab. Generally, foods that cook quickly and are seared on high heat for a few minutes will be perfect for Himalayan Salt slab cooking.

So butter coated prawns or lobster meat or even white meat can be cooked to perfection on the Salt slab. In fact, we guarantee that once you cook on the Himalayan salt slab, your trusty old iron skillet will seem like a tinfoil. As far as the temperature gradient of exposure goes, no other material performs as superlatively as Himalayan pink salt.

The slabs can be heated to a searing 700 degree F and you can cool it right down to 0 degrees. It will melt above 800 degree F. The salt has no residual moisture and given their low porosity, only a limited area of the block actually touches the food, so the vegetables and meat cooked only pick up a light amount of saltiness. Then, there are the trace minerals which offer a fuller taste and more complex flavors to the food.

What can I expect when using the salt block for cooking?

For starters, before you heat the block, make sure it is completely dry. Also, between cooking sessions, the slab should be allowed to rest for 24 hours. Initially, just like with cast iron pots and pans that have to be seasoned, you will need to prepare the salt block with a bit of pampering. So, as a thumb rule, go slow on the heating, controlling the temperature and increasing the heat gradually.

You will see cracks and fissures developing on both surfaces. But, there is no need to be alarmed; this is just the normal process that the salt crystals go through as they are subjected to heat for the first time. Over subsequent uses, the block will stop cracking. Also, at first, the salt may lose its color and go from pink/orange to a distinct opaque white. This again is the normal reaction of halite to the heat. Over time, some blocks will regain a hint of the color they once had as you cook on them and clean them.

What do I need to know about cooking on Himalayan Salt blocks?

To begin with, it is crucial to understand that every type of food will react differently to the salt block. The impact of the salt will vary based on a range of factors such as the content of fat, the moisture, the thickness of the slices of food and the temperature of the salt slab. For instance, if the food has high moisture content, it will pick up a greater amount of salt and faster. On the other hand, if the food is oily, it will absorb the saltiness slower.

So, if you are cooking a food item that is particularly moist, coat it with some oil, before placing it on the salt slab. This way only a limited amount of salt will be absorbed by it. Also, ensure that the slices of the food are of medium thickness, whether it is fish or poultry. Finally, heating the slab to the right temperature is crucial. If the brick is not hot enough, not only will the food have to stay on the slab too long and will be saltier by extension of this bit also, the cooking slab will degrade faster, as it gets exposed to moisture for a longer period of time than required.

As you continue cooking on the salt block, the crystals will pick up the color of the food and the spices and marinades. Also, the surface will develop cracks. Make sure that the surfaces are kept constant; that is the cooking surface and the side of the slab which actually faces the heart of the flame should be the same each time. Salt is an unpredictable substance and that is what makes cooking on it a unique experience.

What is this talk about the versatility of salt blocks as cook ware?

Salt has a number of unique properties that make the Himalayan salt block an ideal surface for cooking. For one the block has a significant amount of weight because it is carved out by our artisans from single large pieces of the salt rock. So, the slab is heavy enough to be used for compressing meat. For instance, if you are cooking chicken breast on the grill, place the salt slab on top of it, sandwiching the meat between the grill and the piping hot salt surface.

The meat will get seared and cooked faster and both surfaces will have an extraordinary glaze. Another way to use the salt slab is to cure foods. Simply place a piece of salmon in between two salt blocks and with the weight, you will have gravlax in no time at all.

What if the food I have cooked on my block comes out too salty?

It will not; provided you heat the block to the right temperature. Remember, salt bricks are a perfect match for foods that need a quick pump of intense heat energy. If the surface is not hot enough, the exposure will be longer than necessary. If you are doing things right, you will find a salty glaze on the side of the food that is exposed to the salt surface and the food will be seasoned to perfection. Yes, it may take a few attempts to get your salt slab cooking skills right. But, once you do, there will be no keeping you away from your salt block.

When using the block for cold serving, say for instance, you intend you intend to throw on some pieces of green apple, water melon with some mozzarella on top, ensure that all the cfruit slices and the cheese is spread out on the surface in such a way that all of them or at least a part of all slices is in contact with the salty surface.

I detest the salty taste of sole…what are my options?

If you simply cannot stand the taste of sole, it may be tricky to swallow a spoonful each morning when you wake up. For others, it may be the waiting a half an hour to enjoy their morning coffee. The important thing to consider as you conduct the salt therapy each morning is that you will soon get used to it.

If you need to get used to the solution, try pouring 1 tsp of sole into a shot glass with 1oz of drinking water. Have a chaser glass of spring water on hand. Tip your head back and take the shot and then follow up with the regular glass of water.

Your salty taste buds are situated on the tip of your tongue therefore, if you take the sole farther back on your tongue, you will not find it tasting horrible. It is still a great idea to drink your glass of spring water afterwards.

Can I use my regular steel spoon with sole?

You will require a plastic spoon to avoid any kind reaction. Another option is to use a small plastic shot glass that often comes with cough syrup bottles. Consider pouring a teaspoon of water into it as a measurement. This will make it easy for you to directly pour sole from the jar into the measuring cup to gulp it down. As long as you get the quantity correct you can use a porcelain soup spoon or a wooden spoon.

After drinking sole, can i drink herbal infusions or green tea?

It is recommended to stay away from both liquid and solid foods for 30 minutes after your sole intake. This includes all kinds of coffees and teas. Regular coffee and black teas are natural diuretics. They cause frequent urination which purges essential salts and water from your body. Therefore, it would be better to pick a caffeine free herbal tea after taking your sole.

Is Himalayan pink salt safe for animals?

The effects of Himalayan pink salt have a positive effect on animals as well. The positive effects of Himalayan pink salt have been noted since the time of Alexander the Great. Some of his horses began licking particular rocks and these animals healed faster than their cavalcade counterparts.

This behaviour caught the soldier’s attention causing them to investigate what the horses were doing that led to their enhanced ability to recuperate. This is how the only Himalayan salt mine was discovered. Therefore, people do add a few drops to their pet’s food to increase vitality and strengthen immunity.

Himalayan Salt Lamp

Are all those salt lamps really made of Himalayan Pink Salt?

Yes, 100%. Except for the base of the lamp which is carved out of wood, usually neem wood, the remainder of the lamp is all salt. Experienced artisans carve large blocks of rock salt into shapes that mimic the overall structure of the Himalayan Mountains. The base of the lamp is wooden and has a holder for the clear light bulb with a cable running through the side. The wire has a plug that has to be inserted into the electrical point.

The crystals used for making Himalayan Salt lamps are meticulously tested to ensure that they have the right color and opacity to allow for the maximum penetration of light. The perfect crystals are hand carved to have an orifice in the center that holds the bulb and a variety of external shapes. Most Himalayan salt lamps that we offer are crafted to have a triangular shape, tapering and tall with a wide base. The look is natural and undoubtedly more aesthetically pleasing. Plus, in terms of geometry, the unique shape will blend with all type of interior decor.

Can a Himalayan salt lamp improve the quality of indoor air?

Yes it can and it does. The heat from the bulb and the natural moisture in the air act on the salt crystals, triggering the release of negative ions. These negatively charged particles attract positively charged pollutants as well as ion released by electronic devices. Furthermore, the antibacterial property of the negatively charged ions from the salt helps to rid the air of harmful virus and bacteria and creates the same healthy environment as that found on the sea shore and in salt mines. In fact, respiratory irritants that are known to cause allergic lung and throat issues and asthma attacks, do not stand a chance against these negative ions.

What are the benefits of Himalayan Salt lamps?

Apart from the fact that they look stunning when placed in any area of the home, these lamps are also powerful and natural ionizers capable of not only ridding the air of pollutants and pathogens but also odor. Available in a eye catching range of colors and with their crystalline form, the lamps are often used in color therapy. The combination of salt, wood and light is also appreciated by practitioners of Feng Shui.

When carving these lamps from Himalayan salt rocks, we ensure that the overall structure and the dimension of the lamp bring out the natural beauty of the crystal. When switched on, Himalayan pink salt lamps offer all the benefits of an ionizer coupled with the functionality of regular light fixtures. However, even when not in use, they continue to offer health benefits as the salt attracts the moisture in the atmosphere and releases negative ions into the indoor environment, just that when heat is added to this equation, it greatly increases the production of negative ions.

In fact, so remarkably effective are these lamps that they have long been recommended by naturopaths and homeopaths in Europe as an ancillary treatment for respiratory and circulatory ailments as well as allergy. Plus the incandescent glow of the lamp creates a relaxing and harmonious environment in the living space. Another thing to consider is that the different facets of the lamp are not symmetrical. So, depending on the surface area of each side, you may have a greater number of negative ions and greater health benefits depending on the side of the lamp that faces the seating area.

What is the best areas to place the Himalayan salt lamp?

Why limit yourself to just one area of the home, when salt lamps can provide extensive health benefits wherever they are placed. However, it is imperative to understand that a lamp placed in the living room will not offer benefits in the bedroom. In other words, the more time you spend in the area of the home that has the lamp, the more pronounced with be the health benefits. If you still cannot decide, here are some tips that will help:

Bedroom: What better area of the home to infuse with healthy negative ions than your bedroom, your inner sanctum, where you possibly spend the most amount of your time. A salt lamp placed on the bedside table or in any part of the bedroom will significantly improve the quality of the air inside by reducing airborne pollutants and microorganisms. And, no you don’t have to keep the lamp switched on all night although it does serve as a nifty night light, bathing the bedroom in a soft, tranquil glow.

As long as you keep it switched on through the day and keep the bedroom door closed when not in use, the air inside will have enough negatively charged particles to get you through the night. People who have placed Himalayan salt lamps in their bedroom often report that they tend to breathe easier and snore less.

The minerals that are released from the crystal salt also have a calming effect on the brain and promote restful sleep. Bedroom placement of the Himalayan salt lamp also works exceptionally well for people who suffer from allergies.

Kiddies bedroom: This is another perfect location for the placement of a Himalayan salt lamp. The dim light will make the kids feel safe and the negative ions will help them to sleep soundly. Plus, if your child is prone to allergy linked colds and respiratory problems, the lamp can help to clear the sinus cavity and alleviate the symptoms of a cold as well as asthma.

The living space: In the lounge room, Himalayan salt lamps look perfect when placed on the mantle or even on a table next to the couch. If you have an exceptionally large lounge area, you can use more than one lamp to get the maximum benefits from the release of negative ions.

Because Himalayan salt lamps are exceptionally potent when it comes to annulling the harmful effects of the positive ions and electromagnetically charged particles released by electronic devices, you can also place salt lamps close to the computer, television and other electrical devices.

Himalayan salt is remarkably effective in clearing the inside environment of electromagnetic fields, which are known to cause behavioral disturbances.

The work space: The host of electronic devices, closed windows and the constantly running temperature control system all contribute towards degrading the indoor environment of an office. To compound the problem, many people work and eat in this closed space, which means that it also becomes a harboring ground for airborne disease causing microbes.

Of course you want your staff to be focused on the task at hand, when at work. But, indoor air quality and the environment of the workspace increase stress and sap away the energy from your body. Salt lamps can remedy many of these problems in a natural and safe way. The soft light and the natural form and beauty of these lamps help to negate the harmful effects of artificial lighting and the circulation of stale air.

A salt lamp on every desk will undoubtedly help to enhance productivity and creativity as the negative ions bring about an improvement in mood and augment concentration. They also reduce monitor radiation, which is known to cause headaches and lethargy. Himalayan salt lamps are easy to maintain and need very little cleaning. In fact, regular light fixtures call for more maintenance than these healthy salt lamps. So, you won’t have to worry about burdening the janitorial staff.

Smelly areas: Whether it is cigarette smoke or any other stench, don’t use aerosol sprays. At best, they only mask the problem. It certainly isn’t a real solution that works for more than a few minutes. If you are really keen on clear, clean and odor free air, try the Himalayan salt lamp. The minerals in Halite are surprisingly effective even against the burnt and musty stench of cigarette smoke. In fact, they even help to neutralize many of the harmful toxins that result from the burning of plant matter.

But, there is more, salt lamps can remove any and all lingering and offensive odors. So, if you have recently had an issue in the house like flooding or mold formation, mildew or the like, you can depend on your trusty Himalayan salt lamp to handle all of it and then some more.

Your own corner of peace and tranquility: Add a couch, a few comfortable cushions and a Himalayan lamp to the attic and you will have your very own tranquil corner in your home, where you could relax and unwind after a stressful day. The soothing glow of the lamp, its crystalline, snowy appearance and of course the colors, all contribute to a relaxing experience. Is it any wonder then that Himalayan salt lamps are known to alleviate insomnia, neurosis and anxiety?

In fact, if you have just been through a stressful period in your life or are recovering from an illness, convalescing with a Himalayan salt lamp by your side will speed up your recovery and will offer mental comfort and peace, which can go a long way in healing the body.

For natural practitioners: Whether it is placed in the consulting room or the waiting area, a rock salt lamp will create a calming environment and purify the air. Additionally, it will also help in the healing process.

Feng Shui: A strategically placed Himalayan salt lamp will cleanse the energy of the room ad even enhance positivity.

For meditation: Meditation is scientifically proven to have numerous health and mental benefits. However, getting into a meditative state is hardly easy. So, when you are angst-ridden and just can’t get yourself to leave the worries of the day behind you as you meditate, use a Himalayan salt lamp.

Coupled with the peace and quiet, which are an inherent part of the meditative environment, the ambient light of the lamp as well as the surge in negative ions in the breathing air compel your body and mind to relax, thus enhancing your meditative experience. So, whether you meditate at the start of your day or at the end, always have a salt lamp switched on in the space and you will realize the difference.

Spas and massage rooms: Massages as relaxation treatments are intended to promote a sense of well being and free your clients of stress. What better way to rejuvenate the mind and the body than to combine the wholesome benefits of a massage or even a facial with those of a Rock salt lamp. Place these in the lobby or even the treatment rooms to get cleaner and fresher breathing air and a refreshingly stress free and relaxed environment that will start working on the clients even before they make it to the massage table.

Himalayan pink salt lamps also make fabulous additions to restaurants, hotels, hospitality ventures, beauty salons, dentist and physician waiting rooms and other commercial spaces.

How should I be using the Himalayan salt lamp?

To get the maximum benefits out of your Himalayan salt lamp, you will need to keep them on for as long as possible. In fact, the longer the lamp is on, the greater will be the amount of negative ions in the air, and as a result you get more pronounced health benefits. The salt used is 100% natural and the lamps are hand crafted without the use of chemical paints, dyes or glues. Also, they are economical and safe.

Are there any scientific studies that back the health benefits of Himalayan salt lamps?

Yes, studies have shown that Himalayan salt lamps do indeed increase negative ions in the environment that they are placed in. Actually, the increase is quite significant at almost 300%, which is enough to correct the imbalance caused due to excessive positive ions in the indoor space.

Pierce J. Howard, who is the Director of Research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences of North Carolina, states that an increase in negative ions has a direct bearing on the supply of oxygen to the brain. This in turn leads to enhanced alertness, increase in mental prowess and cognitive functions as well as a decrease in lethargy and drowsiness.

As a double whammy, these negatively charged particles are also potent germ killers and they bind with other pollutants that irritate mucus membranes. So, using a Himalayan salt lamp is bound to lower instances of allergic cold, throat irritation, sneezing and cough.

And, there is more! About 33% of us are ultra sensitive to the presence of negative ions, so these tiny particles can actually make some of us feel like we are on top of the world or like we are on a flight through clouds. If a walk on the beach manages to perk you up instantly, well you can expect your salt lamp to have a similar impact on your mood.

Can Himalayan salt lamps be used to complement asthma issues?

Yes. Salt lamps often get recommended as a beautiful and relaxing source of light, which can easily beat the harsh, shiny light fixtures you have around your home. These salt lamps are acclaimed as beautiful sources of light that glow in the spectrum of light that is known to increase energy. Himalayan Salt lamps will emit light waves in soothing yellow and apricot and even invigorating oranges and reds. The best part is that sometimes, you may get all of these colors in a single piece.

Together these colors work on instilling a sense of solace and peace. So, it does not come as a surprise when many of our clients report feeling less stressed and an improvement in their ability to relax and concentrate when they start using these salt lamps in their home and workplace.

An ever increasing number of practitioners of complementary medicine are also using Himalayan salt lamps for color therapy, which is incorporated into the treatment plan as a diagnostic method to catch mental and physical ailments. Practitioners of reiki and other forms of holistic methodologies also use these rock salt lamps to balance the energy and the aura of a person at the physical, spiritual and emotional levels.

Is it possible to leave the lamps on all the time?

You bet! In fact, you should be working your Himalayan salt lamp for as long as you can. As stated above, the longer you operate the salt lamp the greater will be its ability to counter the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiations and positively charged particles that are infused in the indoor air through these of computers and televisions.

Where can I use my salt lamp?

These one-of-their-kind light fixtures can be used in any area of the house, any room or bedroom. However, you should not place them in spaces that have high humidity such as the bathroom or the kitchen. If the dining area is just outside the kitchen, as a separate space or a part of the living area, you can place the salt lamp in there. Also, Himalayan salt lamps are only meant for indoor use.

So, you cannot place these on the patio or on the deck unless the area is covered. If for any reason, your lamp does become wet, this can happen due to exposure to high humidity, simply leave it on and it will dry on its own. Trying to wipe it off will leech of the salt crystals and may even bring about a physical change in the lamp.

How exactly do salt lamps purify and cleanse the air?

The Himalayan Salt lamp in your home is made of nothing but 100% pure, pink rock crystals. In fact, as stated earlier, we hand extract a single large rock and carve it into the shape you see in front of you. Salt is a hygroscopic substance, meaning it has a great affinity for moisture and will absorb water right out of the air, where present. Hence, these salt lamps are very powerful dehumidifiers.

In the process of sucking the water vapor, you will see that the lamp begins to sweat, with a visible liquid sheen on its surface. The sweating is caused because the salt crystals dissolve in the water. This is a natural process. However, to prevent the lamp from dripping, it is imperative to use a light bulb of the right wattage.

Now, here is how salt lamps help to kill the germs and pathogens in the air. These microorganisms attach themselves to molecules of water in the air. Salt from the lamp attracts the water vapor and along with it the pathogens that the moisture carries. Since the minerals in Himalayan salt including the sodium chloride are all potent disinfectants and antibacterial agents, the microorganisms are killed as soon as the water gets in contact with the surface of the lamp.

As a second step, the absorption of moisture combined with the heat of bulb creates a chemical reaction that results in the release of negatively charged particles. These further enhance the germ killing properties of the salt lamp. In fact, the charged particles even attract pathogens such as mold spores. When the salt rock gets heated, so does the air surrounding it, which rises with convection and is replaced by the air below. This way the process continues till the lamp is kept on.

Negatively charged particles also bind with dust, dander and pollen, making them heavy enough to fall to the floor. Actually, there is a way to visually test this theory. In the morning when you let sunrays into the room by opening the curtains or the window, you will see dust particles floating in the air. All you have to do is light your Himalayan salt lamp next to the sunrays and you will see a marked reduction in the number of dust particles. Keep the lamp on for long enough and all the dust particles will be gone.

So, where do these particles go? They just fall to the ground. If you stand right next to the rays, they will settle on your clothes; tap your shirt and you will see the dirt particles falling to the ground. Given this profound impact of Himalayan salt lamps, it is obvious that it can be hugely beneficial for people who suffer from dust and other airborne allergen related issues.

In fact, this is one of the reasons why our clients who suffer from respiratory maladies, including asthma and COPD report an improvement in their condition within a few days of using the lamp. It is a well known that individuals who are afflicted with asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and COPD feel better when they spend time in the saline environment near oceans and in salt mines. With the Himalayan salt lamp, you are essentially creating the same saline effect inside your home.

What should be the size of the salt lamp for best effect?

The radius of coverage will depend on the size of the salt rock used in the lamp. For example:

  • A small lamp will be ideal for a radius of 8-10 feet
  • A medium sized lamp will easily cover 12-15 feet of radius
  • A large lamp can offer coverage over a radius of 15-20 feet

As a thumb rule, a medium sized lamp works well for bedrooms and hotel rooms. A small lamp will do for the pet room and a medium sized lamp will be ideal for any area of the home that is prone to odors. If you are buying a Himalayan salt lamp for an exceptionally large living area, bigger than 15X20 feet, you may want to go for two medium lamps or one large and one small sized lamp. For optimal results, a few lamps placed strategically to surround the sittings space will be perfect.

I already own an electronic ionizer, why should I invest in a Himalayan salt lamp?

The very first consideration here is that unlike those electronic devices, Himalayan salt lamps are all natural. No, we do not mean to keep harping over this, but the fact is that this makes a huge difference to the performance of a salt lamp vis à vis an electronic product.

The purification process triggered by the use of a salt lamp is all natural. There is no release of harmful pathogens or pollutants. Whereas an electronic ionizer will remove airborne particulate matter and in doing so, it will spew ozone into the indoor air. There are several horror stories on the internet which detail how electronic devices proved detrimental for buyers who were susceptible to respiratory ailments.

As far as air purifiers go, they have mechanical filters which trap the dust particles. Eventually, these filters get clogged and have to be cleaned at regular intervals. If you miss a cleaning sessions, all those particles are thrown right back from where they came. Yes, into the air you breathe! In striking contrast, salt lamps are natural filters. The negative ions do not trap the particles but they make these microscopic substances so heavy that they fall to the floor, from where they can easily be removed with vacuuming.

What is the average life span of a salt lamp?

You will never need a replacement for your salt lamp unless you dip it in a bucket of water, in which case the salt will dissolve and there will be little left of your lamp. However, if you want to get the best performance from these products, try leaving them on 24/7. If for some reason, you want to store the lamp, wrap the salt crystal in a large plastic zipper bag.

Where can I get the light bulbs for my Himalayan salt lamp?

You can buy the bulb from any hardware store such as Home Depot or even retailers like Wal-Mart. You can find 15 w C-7’s at Home Depot; these look like nightlights and offer just the right amount of heat and illumination. Wal-Mart has torpedo shaped chandelier bulbs in 15w and these will also do. If you see the salt crystal sweating, increase the wattage and you will be able to stop the drip of saline water from the surface of the lamp. In the meanwhile, you may want to put a plastic table mat/coaster below the lamp base if you are going to place it on wood.

How can I replace the bulb of my Himalayan salt lamp?

if the bulb has burnt out or you want to increase the wattage, switch off the lamp and give it time to cool. Touch the salt crystal to ensure that it is at room temperature. Turn the lamp sideways and tip to remove the bulb holder. Get the old bulb out and replace it with the new globe.

You should easily be able to find 7 w candelabra bulbs from any odd store that sells lighting and hardware supplies. These work well with our small lamps. For the larger, globe lamp, you may want to go with 15-25 w bulbs. You can also experiment with the color of the bulb to create a unique look.

How can I clean my Himalayan salt lamp?

The best part of owning a pink salt lamp is that it calls for minimal cleaning and maintenance. It does not get dirty or dusty. However, if you do not use it much or if the piece has been stored for long, just give the surface a wipe with a damp cloth and it will be good to go.

Does the ionizing effect of the salt lamp decrease with time?

No, it does not in regular temperature and humidity conditions. However, if you see the salt crystal sweating profusely, to the point where a pool of salt water forms around the base, this is a clear indication of too little heat and too much humidity.

There are two ways to remedy this scenario. First, try increasing the bulb wattage. The more the heat the less likely will be the chances of salt water drips. The second solution is to place the lamp in an area of the home that is less humid. Generally, a space that has poor ventilation but high humidity is not right for a Himalayan salt lamp; basements usually fall in this category.

Are there any potential hazards linked to the use of salt lamps?

None whatsoever! The salt crystal is 100% safe and natural and even when the lamp is switched on, the surface is merely warm, certainly not hot enough to cause an injury if you have used the correct wattage. Ensure that you do not have the lamp plugged too close to a source of water, like the sink or the bathtub.

The moisture will harm the salt crystal and it is just not safe to use any electrical device that close to water. If you need to dust or clean the lamp in any way or even if you want to move it, always switch it off first.

The crystals used in the crafting of our salt lamps are heavy, usually above 2-3 lbs. So, place the lamp in such a way that young kids cannot reach them or fidget with the crystal. We certainly do not want anybody hurting themselves because the lamp was tipped over and the heavy salt rock fell to the floor.

What type of odors can a Himalayan salt lamp eliminate?

Any area of the home that has a Himalayan pink salt lamp in it will have cleaner and supercharged air. The salt and its mineral content can easily tackle odors that results from mildew, cat litter, cigarette smoke, cooking and food. You can also place a Himalayan salt lamp in the nursery.

They can lend a timeless appeal to any space and match all type of interiors. Whether you are going for the minimalist look or the decadent effect, Himalayan salt lamps will gel right in with the rest of the decor.

How long should I keep the Himalayan salt lamp on?

For as long as you want! In fact, we recommend that you keep the lamp switched on 24/7. The product is designed for long term and all day round use. The only thing that can go wrong is the bulb burning out, which can easily be replaced. Consistent use will make no difference to the size or the ionizing qualities of the salt crystal. If you intend to be away from your home for a couple of days, like with any other electrical gadget, it would be safe to unplug the lamp before you leave.

In terms of ionic production, how different are salt lamps to the salt candle holders?

Of course, ionic production is in relation to the dimensions of the pink salt. The actual extent of ion release directly correlates to the number of tea lights and the overall candle holder size. A Himalayan salt candle holder that weighs 2 to 3 lbs will infuse as many ions into the environment similar to a salt lamp of equal size.

A general estimation shows that a two to three pound pink salt candle holder is capable of releasing enough negatively charged particles to ionize a living space of approximately 8 x 8 square feet. As the ionization properties are related to size, using a Himalayan salt lamp of 5 to 6 lbs would affect a larger area.

This is an electrical free and non-mechanical device that relies on natural moisture and pink Himalayan salt crystals to produce an ionization effect. Simply place the inhaler spout to your lips and take a deep breath. As you are inhaling, a vacuum seal is formed within the porcelain pot. This action in turn brings the outside air into the inhaler through the specifically designed vents located at the bottom of the apparatus.

This newly inhaled air passes through the chamber filled with Himalayan salt rocks and through a filter. Next, the ionized air flows into your mouth and down into your lungs. While the moisture rich air enters the pink salt chamber, micro particles of the mineral laden Himalayan salt are attracted. Certain aspects of these minerals offer potent anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Some minerals facilitate healing and others offer antioxidant properties to combat the negative effects of free radicals and pollutants.

Inhaling this ionized air passes these minerals deep into your lungs and through your tiniest bronchial blood vessels. These minerals are capable of killing the awful micro-organisms that are the underlying cause of persistent coughs and lung infection. The salt helps to dissipate the phlegm that sticks to the inside of the bronchial branches.

Mucus secretion is minimized as the inflammation is reduced. The air passages including the throat, nasal cavity and sinuses are bathed with sterilized air. Negatively charged ions have been shown to neutralize allergens and pollutants that are responsible for asthma attacks.

What is the best way to use the Himalayan salt inhaler?

It is fairly simple to use the Himalayan salt inhaler. Simply place the mouth piece of the inhaler against your lips and breathe deeply, similar to how you would use a straw. It is important not to blow back into the pot when you are done. Inhaling through the mouth and exhaling through the nose is the best habit to form. Begin with some normal breaths and then alternate these with deeper breaths in order to inhale the salt laced air.

Aim for daily inhalation sessions of 20 minutes if you suffer from allergies that make breathing difficult or have any chronic pulmonary discomfort problems. Some people prefer to use their inhaler for a full 20 minute session; while others prefer to break it up into 3 sessions of 7 minutes of breathing. Try using your Himalayan salt inhaler upon waking for 10 minutes to start out your day and then complete your second round prior to going to bed.

How often do I have to change the salt in the pot?

Any moisture in the air leeches micro pink salt crystals from the rocks within the chamber. This means that the Himalayan salt in the pot lasts for at least 3 months between changings.

Can family members use my Himalayan salt inhaler too?

Even though pink salt inhalers provide numerous health benefits, it is important to never share your inhaler. The interior salt crystals would not need to be disinfected; however, the mouthpiece needs to have a user’ lips wrapped around it for every inhalation; inadvertently sharing too many possible germs and viruses.

If you had nothing but free time, you could complete the entire process of emptying, sterilizing and refilling the inhaler. Since pink salt inhalers are extremely affordable, it would be much easier and more beneficial for each person in the house to have their own.

Himalayan Bath Salts

How should I prepare a Himalayan salt bath?

You need to ensure that the salt concentration in the water is at least the same as that of your blood plasma or higher, in order to reap the optimal benefits from your Himalayan salt bath. This enables the minerals to expel the toxins out of the body via osmosis.

A 1% solution makes the right combination. This can be achieved by a ratio of 1% salt: 100% water. In order to achieve this salt concentration, mix 1.28 ounces of Himalayan bath salt per gallon of water. The quantity of salt in the water at this dilution is just enough to promote osmotic mineral exchange.

A regular bath tub holds approximately 27-32 gallons or 100 to 120 L. Therefore, you would require 1.2 kg or 2.6 lbs of Himalayan pink salt to get the bath water perfect. Be sure to have a thermometer on hand while drawing your tub. Salt crystals have the unique ability to hold in the cold or the heat they are subjected to for longer. This translates to the bath water remaining warmer than it normally does.

Temperatures higher than 37 Celsius or 97 Fahrenheit are too hot. The molecules of the pink salt move at a specific frequency in the water; therefore, getting the temperature and the salt quantity correct is vital.

What are some of the do’s and don’ts when using Himalayan bath salt?

As long as you have no medical concerns for which you have been asked to avoid warm baths, feel free to use Himalayan bath salt to either hot or warm water. Ensure that you are comfortable with the water temperature as you will be soaking for a while without much change in the water temperature.

Add the correct amount of salt to your bath water to ensure you get the best results from your Himalayan salt bath.

Set a minimum of 15 minutes aside to soak among the mineral rich water. Get out of the tub slowly. You may be so relaxed after purging toxins so fast that you may feel light headed or unsteady if you try to get out of the tub too fast.

Make a point not to use oils, lotions or soaps during and after your bath. It is not necessary to rinse the salty water off. Simply pat your body off and head for sleep. Due to the superlative effects Himalayan salts have on stress relief, you will want to fall asleep after a decadent soak in a pink salt tub. If you absolutely have to moisturize after the bath, consider using a natural oil such as olive, grapeseed, sweet almond or coconut oil.

Can Himalayan salt baths diminish my cellulite problem?

Interestingly enough, cellulite is a symptom of your body’s issues with excess sodium and not a condition itself. Himalayan salt can be helpful in multiple ways:

  1. Use Himalayan pink salt in place of your regular table salt. The pink salt has a lower sodium content than traditional salt. Himalayan rock salt measures in at 84-87% sodium as opposed to the 98% sodium found in refined salt. The loads of minerals and trace elements you additionally enjoy will help you eliminate toxins that accumulate under tissues and balance the sodium levels in your system.
  1. Frequently bathe with Himalayan salt water. Our skin is our largest organ and will absorb the beneficial minerals via osmosis. The direct exposure to the iconic pink salt will target the toxins stored in adipose tissue and pull them out. Additionally, the underlying connective tissue and muscles become soothed. The overall appearance is less cellulite and a healthier body…hooray!

By targeting the cellulite from the outside and the inside, you will attain noticeable results. As you are no longer consuming bleached, traditional table salt, and enjoying excess minerals, you will enjoy a huge improvement within your skin health in all aspects of your body.

What is the difference between edible pink salt and Himalayan pink salt for the bath?

Himalayan bath salts are a deeper color; ranging from dark red, orange and even white. The colors directly reflect the high mineral content and this is why the bath crystals are exceptionally potent. Due to their higher mineral levels, these salts are not fit for human consumption.

Typically, the bath crystals are derived from some of the shallower areas of the mine. The edible salt however, is mined from rocks that are found within the deepest layers of the Khewra mines. The edible pink salt that is on your table is derived from the same composition as the waters from the primordial ocean that eventually evaporated and made the Himalayan salt.

The edible salt furthermore is meticulously tested to determine that all of the 84 trace minerals are available in consumable amounts. The product goes through stringent testing to ensure it meets the FDA’s standards for food safety.

Therefore, the safety and purity of edible Himalayan salt is not capable of being disputed. Himalayan bath salts are additionally extracted from the same mine; however, they are not tested for edibility. The darker salt crystals reflect the extreme mineral content. The higher mineral content makes the bath salts more efficacious in comparison to food grade salt in terms of offering muscular pain relief and maintaining skin health.

Of course, if you have run low on your pink bath salt and don’t have enough to put into your tub, you could use some edible pink salt to your bath. However, it would be ideal if you had ample food grade pink salt for cooking and consuming as well as a stock of the darker Himalayan bath salt to create your relaxing bath ritual.

Would Himalayan pink salts help with my varicose veins even though my doctor has recommended avoiding warm baths?

Toxins that can cause veins to bulge can be drawn out with the use of Himalayan salts. As your skin thins with age, certain blood vessels become more visible. Since the minerals in the Himalayan bath salt work to rejuvenate and nourish the skin, using the pink salt to soak in the bath tub can help dramatically.

If however, you have been advised by your doctor to avoid warm baths, you may prefer to add the pink salt to a tub full of water at room temperature. This method will ensure you receive the therapeutic benefits of these bath salts without causing additional grief to your varicose veins.

Vascular expansion can occur with a warm bath that has no salt or some salt mixed in. Using Himalayan salt in water at room temperature will still be effective. The salt holds the original temperature of the bath water for a longer period of time. When you add the salt to room temperature water, the miniscule warming of the water due to heat generated by your body is delayed.

If you are using the salt cleansing and detoxifying bar on children, have acne or sensitive skin; be sure to wrap the bar in a soft cloth prior to using it.

What is the best way to use the Himalayan salt cleansing and detox bar?

If you have normal skin, wet a portion of your bar and then rub the wet salt surface on the area you wish to treat. Be sure to rub gently. The salt will slightly sting if you have any open wounds or sores. This is the salt’s natural way to disinfect the site by seeking and destroying any microorganisms that may be present. The burning sensation will not harm your skin; it’s actually a positive situation. Once the bacteria have been removed from your skin, expect to experience much faster healing.

Another option that is useful if you have severe acne or a recent wound is to simply rub the wet bar in your hands and then pat the resulting mixture of water and salt onto your face. Allow the liquid to dry and then rinse. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer if you prefer.

It is common to find the bar a little rough for the initial use; however, the surface will eventually smooth out. If you do come across the odd abrasive bit, consider filing it off with a regular nail file or dissolving under some warm water.

How should I store the Himalayan cleansing bar?

After you are done using the salt bar, simply place it on a glass plate and allow it to dry out of the bathroom. A good spot is in the bedroom or near the window where direct sunlight can help it dry. The next day it will be ready to use. Store it in a Ziploc bag if you do not plan on using it for a few days. Be sure to never leave the bar in the bathroom as the high humidity will cause the salt crystals to melt due to faster oxidation of the salt.

Will I stink at the end of the day if I only use a Himalayan salt deodorant bar?

Why should I trade in my normal deodorant for Himalayan salt deodorant bars?

In order to understand the full benefits of the Himalayan Salt Deodorant bar, it is necessary to understand the current products on the market and how they work. Most commercial deodorants and anti-perspire products contain harmful ingredients such as aluminum chlorohydrate and chemical fragrances. The aluminum is specifically used to block your sweat gland secretion. It is important to understand that sweating is a healthy physiological way for your body to eliminate toxins and regulate your body temperature.

Sweat is actually an odorless fluid. Due to the surrounding skin, the clothes in the vicinity and the dampness, bacteria begin to thrive in places like your arm pits where the skin naturally creases. It is these microorganisms that lead to the stench of body odor.

Studies show that bathing is unable to control the bacteria for approximately more than an hour. This is why millions of people apply their traditional under arm products ritualistically every morning. However, the use of aluminum has become a key factor in the increase of breast cancer. Aluminum itself is known to be a carcinogenic.

If you are tired of compromising your health in order to smell socially acceptable; fear not! The Himalayan salt bars do not interfere with the lymphatic system and are completely 100% natural and safe.

Himalayan salt foot detox blocks

What exactly are Himalayan salt foot detox blocks?

The detoxification blocks are constituted from 100% natural and pure Himalayan pink salt. These blocks work by being warmed up and then placed under your bare feet. The Himalayan pink salt has been valued for centuries for its restorative and curative properties. A powerhouse offering 84 of the 92 trace elements found in nature; these intense detoxifying agents are mineral-rich crystals.

The minerals transform into their ionic state when subjected to heat. The negatively charged particles are easily absorbed into the skin and enter the body. After they arrive into the cells, toxins are driven out while free radicals are neutralized. This results in a decrease in fatigue, pain and a host of other medical concerns.

Many users are surprised at how fast they feel better when using the foot detox salt blocks. They successfully alleviate the discomfort associated with sore feet and joints and promote a sense of mental and physical well-being.

I want to start using foot detox blocks, how do I start?

It is best to check the temperature of the salt blocks by carefully touching their surface. Ideally, it should feel warm but not be burning hot. To put it simply, ensure the rock salt temperature is one that would be comfortable for contact with your skin for twenty to sixty minutes without damaging your skin. A general rule of thumb is to ensure that the blocks are slightly warmer than your hot bath water.

If you do find that you have overheated the salt blocks accidently, do not pour water on them to cool them down. Simply leave them alone for up to 15 minutes in order to reduce the temperature. Once you achieve the desired temperature, place a towel on the floor and put your blocks there beside each other.

Next, sit in a comfortable chair and place your feet on the blocks so that every part of your foot comes in contact with the salt block. Begin with your toes and work your way down towards your heels. You should not have to strain your back or your feet in any way when using these blocks. Take at least twenty minutes for yourself to obtain optimum benefits. Wipe down your blocks when you are done and store them safely until your next session.

What should I do when the surface of my Himalayan salt foot detox blocks look crusty?

The crustiness generally forms when the salt melts in response to humidity levels or exposure to moisture. This may occur if a few drops of water were left on the salt block after you last used them. It may also be a result of not being stored correctly. In order to prevent the salt from melting, be sure to always store within sealable plastic bags. In order to repair the damage, simply use a dry kitchen towel to scrub the crusty bits off. Afterwards, heat your salt block as usual.

Why is it a good idea to use a Himalayan salt foot massage roller?

Our amazing feet carry the weight of our bodies every day. We take them for granted and do not marvel at their amazingness as often as we should. Our feet undergo a tremendous amount of strain on a daily basis. Exercising, working on your feet, wearing high-heels and unsupportive footwear, spending hours on end on concrete and hard surfaces all take their toll.

Especially considering our feet are connected to each of our body’s physiological systems including our heart and our brain, it is no wonder that they need to be loved and cared for. Taking care of your feet can ensure the rest of your body feels amazing.
