Himalayan pink salt is often said to be the most beneficial as well as the cleanest salt available on this planet today. With a history dating back to Earth’s creation, Himalayan pink salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primordial sea. It has all kinds of nutritional and therapeutic properties, not to mention culinary uses. You can use it as a healthier option to processed salt. You can also use it to create homemade body scrubs and bath soaks. Our pink salt comes from the Punjab and is ground medium fine. 3 oz jar.
Refined table salt is harmful to our bodies as it has been stripped of natural trace minerals and electrolytes, and added with synthetic additives such as iodine.

When the Himalayan salt is dissolved in water, the crystal salt and associated minerals hydrolyses into ions form (or electrolytes), unleashing the stored energy in the ionic salt crystals. Along with the 84 trace minerals and elements in the Himalayan salt sole, this stored energy results in great benefits to our bodies as it nourishes every cell of our body.
Benefits of Himalayan salt sole include:

Our family has deep roots in India (especially South India) and we enjoy making fresh Indian food at home. A few years ago we began selling our homemade spices to help nonprofits, schools and farmers. It took off from there and now we're in specialty food markets, at food and wine events, at farmers markets, and of course online. Deborah (mom) is the owner of the company and our son, Anil, has been making spices since he was five. Now he's twenty and is our Master Spice Maker who roasts, grinds and oversees production of our seasonings. Rob was born and raised in south India and has an affinity for that type of food and spices. He's our spice teacher.
