5 Things You Didn’t Know about Himalayan Bath Salts
Bath salts are widely used to create a revitalizing, rejuvenating, and purifying bathing experience. However, Himalayan Bath Salts are the highest quality and most beneficial. This mysterious salt has some astonishing fringe benefits; even Dr. Oz is a fan! Today, we will uncover some of the secrets of Himalayan Bath Salts to find that not all salt is created equal!
The fascinating Himalayan bath salts
- 84 essential elements found in your body are also found in Himalayan Salt:
The most basic chemical structure of salt is sodium and chloride, but this ancient salt has more than 84 elements within its composition! Some elements found in the Himalayan variety include calcium, bromine, mercury, barium, sulfur, magnesium, and potassium. These nutrients promote a healthier body balance; they can even help the body maintain electrolytes it may have sweated out, making it the most beneficial salt option in the world, leading us to the next interesting fact.
- The health benefits of Himalayan bath salts are out of this world!
Like I said, there are tons of nutrients in Himalayan salts that are also found in the human body. These nutrients reap benefits that include reduction in muscle cramps (great if you’re a weekend athlete in your 30s), improvement of bone strength, promotion of healthy sleep patterns, prevention of gallbladder and kidney stones, and (ready for this?) prevention of cellulite and aging! These are just a few of the many benefits.
- Bath salt is highly hydrating on human skin:
Its hydrating property makes Himalayan Salt truly unique; whereas other salts must be broken down in the body, this variety of salt is readily available in the body. Because of the high mineral content, its mixture with warm water generates higher blood flow in the small vessels under our skin, eliminating toxins. Bathing in these bath salts literally allows your body to absorb the many minerals of the salt. After use, you don’t even need to lotion! Your skin will feel silky smooth.
- Only one country produces Himalayan Salt:
The Himalayan Mountains are 1500 miles long, so it may be surprising to learn that Pakistan is the only country in the world that mines Himalayan Salt! When an ancient Indian sub- continent hit Asia, the ocean floor rose and created a gigantic salt lake. Over time the lake evaporated and left behind the Salt Range in India and Pakistan. This large area of salt reserves, referred to as the Khewra Salt Mine of Pakistan, is -interestingly– the second largest mine in the world.
- Pink Himalayan salt is pink because…
It has a mineral concentration that is completely unique! Different mineral concentrations alter the color of salt and its impurities. In the vastly large salt mines, the concentration of minerals can differ greatly from layer to layer. In the mines of Pakistan, fist- sized salt rocks are hand selected, washed, and sun- dried before being crushed, sorted, and sold.
