This genuine Himalayan Crystal salt originally comes in various colours from pink, orange and white, depending on the various concentrations of the particular minerals, but once crushed, all the salt turns pure white. None of this salt is refined or adulterated in any way.
So what is it it used for?
Probably one of the best ways to use the salt is to put it in the bath! It has a similar action to Epsom Salts, so Do Not spend more than 30 minutes soaking and ideally the temperature should be same as our body but just make sure the water is not too hot. The salt will assist to keep the temperature at an even level.
It is great when convalesing or if you have the flu, however I wouldn't recommend it for children under 8 years old, unless you were going to be sitting in the room with them and for no longer than 10 minutes... Quantity to use would be their handful, not yours! Do not bath on a full stomach.
One of the best ways to detoxify your body, as one bath is equivalent to a 3 day fast if you use 1kg! The bath will also be great for the skin and any irritations.
For a safer option until you get used to how it works with your metabolism, try a footbath, this will assist your detoxification as fluids tend to congregate in your feet. The ionic salt will assist the detox process as normal and the fluids are what contain the many toxins. Great for athletes foot, sore/tired/cracked feet, ankle sprains, varucas/warts and more. On the basis of reflexology, your internal organs will be cleared out in time, as the salt creates a 'vacuum effect', via the tiny electrical impulses. Try using essential oils in your baths as well to create a beautiful aroma and to further assist the clearing and harmonizing effect through aromatherapy.
Pot plants/gardens - Use to fertilise your pot plants and indeed your whole property, vegetable garden and even farm! This will certainly assist the soil to regain its mineral balance.
Sinus clearing - Amazing in a Neti pot, a traditional Indian method of clearing the nasal and sinus passages. Just pour a tablespoon of Salt into the pot and use in the usual way. Or add a tablespoon to a bowl of hot water (not boiling), and sit over it with a towel over your head for 5-10 minutes. If you start feeling dizzy, stop immediately.
