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.
