Himalayan rock salt is a very specific type of salt. It comes from the Khewra Salt Mine in the Punjab region of Pakistan, around 190 miles from the Himalayas. The pink colour is caused by the presence of iron oxide. The salt is predominantly made up of sodium chloride (95-98%), with 2-3% polyhalite and small amounts of ten other minerals. It’s commonly used for cooking or as bath salts.

  • Its balance of minerals is thought to have particular health benefits, which include improving hydration and water balance, boosting the circulatory system, preventing cramps, aiding digestion, strengthening bones and lowering blood pressure.
