What is Organic Himalayan Salt?
Our Himalayan pink salt is available in both a coarse and fine grind. Regular consumption of Himalayan pink salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, and supports proper nutrient absorption.The Himalayan pink salt offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is “Gourmet Food Grade,” the highest quality of Himalayan salt available. It is used by chefs, spas, health professionals, and individuals for its range of nutritional and therapeutic properties. Use Himalayan pink salt in bath salt recipes, body scrubs, aromatherapy, homemade soap, and all types of culinary and spa applications. Himalayan pink salt was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Mesozoic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. Historically, the people of the Himalayas used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade.
Himalayan pink salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun. It should be noted that most of the commercial supply on the market today is coming from the mountainous region of Pakistan. It is recommended that this salt be stored in an air tight, covered container in a cool, dry place.
