Quality & Regulatory Documents
Also Known as Himalayan Rock Salt, this salt is hand-mined and harvested from ancient salt beds, deep under the Himalayan Mountains. Rich in over 80 minerals and trace elements, some of the most notable being calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, this salt is considered to be the purest form of salt available.
For therapeutic purposes, the Himalayan can be used in baths to relax the body, stimulate circulation, sooth sore muscles, and remove toxins. It is reputed to assist with relief from arthritis, skin rashes, wounds, and flu and fever symptoms.
Therapeutic Bath Recipe:
Dissolve 2 cups of salt in bath. Soak for no more than 20 minutes as this mixture will refresh and rejuvenate the body.
Facial Steam Recipe:
For treating respiratory ailments, asthma or bronchitis, boil 2 cups water, add salt to water, cover your head with a towel to create a “tent”, and inhale the vapors for 10-15 minutes.

Rating: I used this salt for muscles relief after an injury. What can I say? Himalayan salt is just amazing! Maybe a little too many sharp edges for a scrub though. Don't rub just soak and you will feel the benefits. And did I mention it has a beautiful colour?

Rating: This salt has a beautiful colour but also a wonderful relaxing bath experience. Also, bottled this and gave as gift to friends and family.
Purchased the 4kg. jar, and it filled 6- 500ml jars nicely, and some left for me!

Rating: Oh what a marvelous scrub I will make with this salt. The price is a wonder too. Very interesting product to work with. Thank you for this new product.
Le sel de l'Himalaya est un produit tellement cher sur le marché que c'est déjà une aubaine de pouvoir s'en produrer au prix New Directions. Je me sens très inspirée pour faire un bon scrub !
