The Benefits & Uses of Himalayan Salt

Earlier this year I decided to add Himalayan salt to my diet and daily routine. How could I not? Every health magazine, TV show, YouTube channel, and blog was talking about the stuff. After half a year of regular use, I can honestly say I really like Himalayan salt! That’s why I have to spread the word on how amazing Himalayan salt is and some great ways to use it.

History Pinksalt

Himalayan salt is mined only in the Khewra Salt Mine located in Pakistan. This mine is the oldest in the world. All the salt is hand-mined and great care is put into keeping the salt pure. The Khewra salt mine is the second largest in the world and attracts about 250,000 visitors every year. The color of Himalayan salt can range from white to pink to a deep red. The salt gets its color from iron and minerals.


Himalayan salt contains over 80 minerals and elements found within the human body including potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Due to the abundance of minerals, Himalayan salt can stabilize the body’s pH and relieve headaches.  This amazing salt can also increase hydration and aid in the absorption of nutrients within the intestines.  Himalayan salt helps remove heavy metals from the body and strengthens bones. With so many great benefits it’s no mystery why everyone is raving about Himalayan salt.

Now that you know about Himalayan salt’s history and benefits, I bet you want to know how to use it in your everyday life. Start by replacing your chemical filled table salt with Himalayan salt. Don’t worry there is no difference in taste between the two types of salts. Try taking 1 to 3 rocks of Himalayan salts and dissolving it in 28 to 32 ounces of water. Do this once a day for better hydration and absorption of nutrients in your intestines. To purify the air in your home or office try a Himalayan salt lamp. These lamps deodorize and lower the amount of allergens in the air. Plus, the lovely pink-orange glow is very relaxing. Adding Himalayan salt to your bath will help increase circulation and soothe muscle aches.
