Himalayan Pink Salt is a type of sea salt mined from the foothills of the Himalaya mountains in Pakistan. Because Himalayan salt caves have been protected for millions of years from modern pollutants by natural elements like lava, ice, and snow, this particular salt is seen as one of the purest of all. Not only does Himalayan Pink Salt posses the classic antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of any salt, it also contains trace minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium which give it its pink hue. Soaking in Himalayan Salt makes it very easy for our bodies to absorb these vital minerals through the skin, even moreso than consuming them orally. Soaking in saltwater in general has numerous health benefits from encouraging a more restful night of sleep, to relieving sore muscles, to cleansing the skin. Even Hippocrates the proclaimed “Father of Medicine” noted that salt water cleaned, soothed, and even healed infections on the hands of local fishermen. He would even advise patients to bathe in warm seawater as treatment he called, Thalassotherapy.
