It would be an endless article talking about all the benefits and goodness of Himalayan Salt thus, as a massage therapist, I will talk mainly about the external use of this salt and its benefits for your body and mind.
Himalayan Salt is millions of years old and 100% absolutely pure. In general, it is the cleanest and highest food grade of salt ever available, untouched by many of the toxins and pollutants. It is found naturally and hand-mined from the inside of the Himalayan Mountains.
No other natural or man-made salt contains as many trace mineral as Himalayan Salt does. In particular, this salt contains 84 of the 92 minerals known to man.
Moreover, Himalayan salt contains the minerals in the same proportions as the human body alongside with such important elements as calcium, potassium, zinc, iron, iodine, and magnesium.
By applying it as bath salt or other skin products, it is naturally absorbed by the body to feed cells and our nervous system.
In addition, Himalayan Salt has many healing properties.

One of the best external ways of using this wonderful salt is as a body scrub or a bath salt. For the body scrub you would need a fine Himalayan salt for a gentle rub on your skin. Though as a bath salt the normal salt granules can be used. The Himalayan salt has a gentle sweet scent and with addition of some essential oils it can make a great healing body product.
I absolutely love using Himalayan Salt for my natural products for body and mind that I use for myself and my family as well as offer to my clients.
I’ve used it as the main ingredient of my Muscle Tension and Stress Relief Bath Salt with addition of natural essential oils of Lavender, Frankincense, Roman Chamomile and Bergamot. I have to say it makes luxurious, natural, healthy, nutritious and simply beautifully looking bath salt.
You can make it yourself or you can give it a try and purchase it from me for just $15. I can promise you will love it. A beautiful way to turn your usual bath time into a spa experience.
