23 Sep Healing with Himalayan Crystal Salt
Picture this – it’s a beautifully fresh and sunny Saturday morning, and you’ve just emerged from a dip in the ocean. You’re feeling fabulous from head to toe – cleansed, refreshed and rejuvenated! We might think the sea’s healing properties some simply from the joyful emotions we experience being out and about in nature, but in fact the answer runs a little deeper than that. When you take a swim in the ocean, you’re immersing yourself in salt water, which offers an abundance of healing properties.
Salt is naturally antibacterial and alkalising, and releases a negative electromagnetic charge that combats the positively-charged impurities we’re exposed to on a daily basis. One of the purest forms of salt on earth (or rather, under it) is known as pink halite, or Himalayan crystal salt. As the name suggests, these pink salt crystals are found naturally deep within the Himalayan mountains, in pristine conditions that have kept them rich in trace minerals and free of contaminants. There are so many ways to benefit from Himalayan salt, so read on and learn more about the creative, innovative products in the Faithful to Nature selection.
Did You Know? Himalayan salt crystals were formed over 250 million years ago, when ancient sea beds were still covered by lava! This protected the salt from modern-day pollution and kept it ultra-pure.
Blissful Baths with Himalayan Salt
Simply pop one of these pretty pink salt crystals into your warm bathwater, sit back and relax as the negative ions wash away stress and strain. The salt will cleanse and refresh your skin, and leave your spirit feeling uplifted too.
These bath crystals are one of our most popular Himalayan salt products – and we’re very excited to share a few new additions with you too. Here are some of the innovative ways you and your family can benefit from the healing powers of this remarkable, mineral-rich salt.
Himalayan Salt Deodorant
The newest addition to our Himalayan salt range is a solid crystal salt deodorant bar. Who would have thought something as simple as salt could be such a powerful, effective way of replacing ordinary commercial deodorants? Because the salt is naturally antibacterial, it kills the bacteria that cause odours – rather than preventing you from sweating like antiperspirants do. With no alcohol, no aluminium and no synthetic perfume, this deodorant bar is so kind to your skin – plus it’s non-greasy, non-staining and won’t clog your pores. It also alkalises the skin and makes a wonderful head-to-toe cleanser with gentle exfoliating action.
Himalayan Salt Lamps & Candle Holders
At first glance, you might think these lamps and tealight holders are designed simply to make your home look pretty. But there’s so much more to them than meets the eye! Made from pure Himalayan salt, these beauties start to release negative ions as they warm up, thanks to the heat of a candle flame or light bulb. These negative ions have a wealth of positive effects!
Keeping a Himalayan salt light in your home has the following benefits for body and mind:
- Neutralise the effects of electromagnetic radiation emitted by household appliances like computers
- Freshen and purify the surrounding air, removing dust, bacteria, pollen, smoke & other allergens
- Provide relief from allergies, hayfever, sinus irritation and even asthma symptoms
- Boost respiratory function and improve the oxygen uptake of your blood
- Balance serotonin levels, uplifting the mood and calming the mind
- Promote healthy sleep patterns and improve the quality of sleep
Himalayan Salt Inhaler
Wait, what? That’s right, simply breathing in the goodness of natural salt can help to heal your body as well! (Just think of how good it feels when you take a deep breath of that sea breeze!) Our innovative new salt inhaler helps to moisturise dry mucous membranes and clear the air you’re breathing of impurities and allergens. That means it can help to ease coughs, congestion and even snoring.
And of course don’t forget – Himalayan salt is really tasty too. This mineral-packed salt is free of impurities, and makes the perfect sprinkle for seasoning savoury dishes! A healthy alternative to ordinary refined table salt.
Wishing you all happy healing with a little help from Mother Nature!
