Well, take a minute to learn about the many therapeutic virtues of this amazing element!
What is Himalayan salt anyway and why is it so special?
Himalayan salt is considered to be the most pure form of whole salt on the planet. Formed from the primordial sea during a time of intense tectonic pressure, the salt has been maturing over the past 250 million years and is rich in magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium.
Himalayan Salt Benefits the Body via Salt Lamps, Salt Scrubs, Wraps & Soaks, Salt Stone Massage and even in cooking by:
Stimulating Circulation Reducing Inflammation
Relaxing the Body Calming the Nervous System
Lowering Blood Pressure Improving Sleep
Soothing Sore Muscles Increasing a sense of well-being
Removing Toxins from the Body Improving Immune Support
Reducing the Signs of Aging Exfoliating the skin
Himalayan Salt for SOAKING
A detoxifying Himalayan salt bath will stimulate your circulation, clear sinuses and respiratory ailments and soothe sore muscles. Additionally, because of its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, a Himalayan salt soak can soothe painful and/or itchy bites, rashes and skin conditions. Himalayan salt contains 80+ nourishing and skin-friendly minerals, so a bath will provide a healing and amazingly therapeutic experience for both body and soul. When you get a massage, your therapist manipulates muscles, fat and tissue increasing the circulation and the flow of lymph. This process releases toxins trapped between the muscle fibers and cells. A Himalayan salt soak following a massage will help to draw out these toxins more efficiently while feeding your skin with healthy minerals.
Himalayan Salt for WRAPS, SCRUBS & SALT STONE MASSAGE
Spa treatments that feature Himalayan salts stimulate cellular regeneration and moisturize and plump the superficial layers of the skin creating a barrier from harmful free radicals in the air. Exfoliation using Himalayan salt opens the pores, reduces surface dead skin and alleviates the look of cellulite. This dimpling can occur, even if you are relatively thin, due to the fascia getting tight/bound around the muscle or simply needing some manipulation. Whether a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, Body Wrap or Scrub, this super nutrient will leave you with a long-lasting healthy glow and leave you feeling grounded due to its Earth-like resonating frequency of 8 hertz.
Himalayan Salt for COOKING
Choosing Himalayan salt for cooking is far superior to that of traditional table or sea salt and provides pure, toxin-free salt with essential trace minerals plus a unique ionic energy that is released when the salt is mixed with water. When used in cooking it helps to detoxify and balance hormones, promotes bone strength, prevents muscle cramps, promotes sinus, respiratory and blood sugar health, regulates water content throughout the body, helps regulate blood pressure and vascular health, stimulates serotonin production which assists in healthy sleep patterns, is so much healthier than table and/or sea salt and so much more!
Himalayan Salt LAMPS
Besides giving your home or office a soft glow, salt lamps give off negative ions which help to neutralize the overabundance of positive ions created by our highly electronic environments. The positive effects of these negative ions supply a variety of health benefits including reducing and eliminating air-born allergens and infections, boosting serotonin levels, improving mental alertness, and supporting the immune system. This translates to relief from a myriad of symptoms including asthma, allergies and sinusitis, reduction of symptoms of migraines, depression, ADD and anxiety.
You can find Himalayan salt lamps just about anywhere now a days, but beware – they are not all created equal! The low-end models use night light bulbs to warm the salt which does just that – simply warms it. In order to be effective, the salt must get and remain hot. The bases of the cheaper models are often less safe and stable and are mass produced in China using questionable labor practices. Be sure to purchase a quality Himalayan salt lamp to reap the full benefits. Our lamps are from Aloha Bay, an employee owned company that employs only “fair trade” labor. The lamps are of superior quality made with sturdy bases and fitted with oven lamp bulbs which heat the salt to an optimum temperature for maximum results. The sockets, cords and toggle switches are “UL” listed and meet strict performance standards and safety guidelines. This is of the utmost importance, as Himalayan Salt lamps should be left on at all times to ensure the effectiveness of the benefits and also to maintain the integrity of the crystal. Dampness and humidity will cause the crystal to weep and it can melt or crack so it is important to keep the crystal heated at all times. Whether you chose a beautiful salmon pink, orange or whiter Himalayan salt lamp you will love the glow and positive effect it will have on your body, mind and spirit. Choose the color that appeals to you. Differences in color can be attributed to the color of the salt veins deep inside the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Typical vein colors include white, pink, orange, and red. Therefore, the color of the crystal depends on what vein it was mined from. White salt lamps are more rare but no more effective than other colors.
