Himalayan salt is a natural rock salt extracted by hand from salt rocks in the foothills of the Himalayas. They have formed over millions of years from ocean salt deposits pushed to the surface by the movement of the earth’s crust and hot magma.
Himalayan salt contains over 95% sodium chloride and several important minerals for the human body in easily digestible ionic form. These are potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. The colour of its crystals can vary from transparent white through light pink to deep pink.
