Himalayan Rock Salt is hand dug from ancient salt beds deep under the Himalayan Mountains. Rich in over 80 minerals and trace elements such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron, this salt is considered to be the purest form of salt available.
Himalayan salt is used in baths to relax the body, stimulate circulation, soothe sore muscles, and remove toxins. It is reputed to assist with relief from arthritis, skin rashes, wounds, and flu and fever symptoms.
To use in a bath dissolve 2 cups of salt in water and if desired add few drops of your favourite essential oil. To relieve cold and flu symptoms add 4-5 drops of pure Eucalyptus essential oil to Himalayan salt and dissolve in the bath water. Soak for no more than 20 minutes. This bath mixture will refresh and rejuvenate the body.
To relieve congestion boil 2 cups water, add a handful of salt to water with 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus or Peppermint essential oil, cover your head with a towel to create a "tent", and inhale the vapours for 10-15 minutes.
