First, we gotta get clear... I said pink himalayan salt not table salt! There is a BIG and I mean big difference. So much so that when we hear salt, we often just think it is bad for us and our health. That is very true for table salt as it has been processed and stripped of everything good (just left with sodium chloride). Pink himalayan salt on the other hand is not processed or stripped of any of its healthy minerals.. it still has all 84 essential minerals that are very, very good for the body! Not only that, it still tastes great when sprinkled onto your food in moderation.
Having the proper level of essential minerals in our bodies ensures optimal organ health (including skin) and glandular system function (happy adrenal and thyroid glands).
So where is this pink miracle salt from you may ask? It is sourced directly from the Himalayan mountains where crystallized sea salt beds were once covered by lava many, many years ago. This is thought to be the purest salt on earth as it has been left in pristine environmental conditions, free from pollution.
To receive the mega-health benefits from this pink salt, you most definitely do not have to just consume it internally. An incredibly easy and affordable way to indulge in this luxury salt, is by taking a therapeutic salt bath. As the skin is permeable, the salt soaks right in and goes to work, promoting healing throughout the body on many levels.
Having a salt bath once a week is a great way to detoxify and purify the body as soaking in the salt water actually helps pull the impurities out the skin. You will notice while soaking in the bath, you will start sweating more than usual. Don't be alarmed for this is normal and actually a really good thing. It's your body cleansing itself! At the same time, the healthy minerals are also being absorbed into your body and remineralizing your tissues and cells, leaving them to perform at optimal levels.
Aside from the physical benefits, salt bathing is also said to be energetically cleansing as well. For ladies who follow the moon cycle, I highly suggest taking a salt bath on both the new moon and full moon to help clear your energy field and release what is no longer serving you, physically & emotionally.
All you have to do is simply run a hot bath and sprinkle this beautiful pink rock salt in and let it dissolve. To make the bath even more nourishing, you could also add essential oils and dried flowers to the pink rock salt.

"If you were offered a meal made with cetyl alcohol, iodopropyl butylcarbamate, sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, disodium EDTA, BHT, red dye #17, and yellow dye #10, would you eat it?
Millions of people do "EAT" these chemicals every day (you may even be one of them), since they are standard ingredients in two of the most popular brand-name moisturizers and beauty soaps that people use on the skin- one of the body's major organs of absorption.
Although we get most of our nutrition orally, the skin ingest nutrients as well. In fact, unlike the food we chew and swallow, which is broken down in the stomach before it is absorbed, creams and lotions applied to the skin bypass the digestive process and GO FULL STRENGTH directly into the BLOODSTREAM.
Think of your beauty products not as cosmetics, but as FOOD. If you cannot eat it, do not use it on your skin.
Start reading the labels of your beauty products. If one contains a chemical or herb you do not know, try to find out what it is before you use it."
