Though it is traditionally eaten with food, Himalayan salt’s impressive mineral profile also lends it well to external detoxification.
For example, you can’t find a better salt than Himalayan salt in which to bathe; its minerals and negative ions easily penetrate the skin, producing a cleansing and detoxifying effect that can leave your skin and mind feeling rejuvenated and invigorated for hours thereafter.
Likewise, Himalayan salt has a positive effect on our air.
It’s not a coincidence that virtually all reputable salt lamps are made using Himalayan salt rather than table salt or sea salt; its negative ions bind themselves to positive ions in the air, neutralizing it and ridding it of pollutants.
Himalayan salt can be purchased in health food stores or online, and is usually sold as fine or coarse grains.
Fine-grained Himalayan salt is recommend, since the small, unobtrusive crystals are far easier to incorporate into most meals.
When purchasing your salt, remember to check that it is pink in color; this indicates that the salt is dense in minerals.
