Himalayan crystal salt contains trace amounts of magnesium, sulphur, potassium, calcium and iron. It has not been iodised or processed in any way, so it retains all its natural nutrients and includes no harsh synthetic additives or artificial preservatives. Great in the kitchen or the bathroom – use it as a seasoning, a skin scrub or even a therapeutic soak.

These are a staple in my home – the whole family baths in them almost every night. Apart from all the minerals, the salt water has the electrical charge of the salt to help detox, cleanse the skin and assist the body energetically.
