Pink Himalayan Salt are beyond imaginable!
While we've all heard that there are LOTS of benefits to eating pink himalayan salt, once the research began, it was a wrap - literally and figuratively.

“THINK PINK” Himalayan Salt Scrub/Soak
60 min treatment which will leave you de-stressed, de-toxified, re-mineralized, stimulate circulation, ease aches & pains, cleanses the skin without pruning or wrinkling afterwards, de-bloat, and did we mention it helps reduce cellulite? The benefits are endless – and these are only SOME of them! Read on!
Every day we are exposed to countless toxins – from our food, our air, our water and our personal care and household products. It’s estimated that we come into contact with anywhere between 700,000 and 2.1 million different toxic chemicals a day!
A 2012 study, carried out at the University of California, indicates that the average person is regularly being exposed to cancerous levels of toxins like arsenic, dioxins, and DDE – with 100% of children tested exceeding cancer benchmark levels for these chemicals.
When we bathe or soak in a Himalayan pink salt solution, we help to pull some of these toxins out of our skin through a process called reverse osmosis.
Because Himalayan pink salt is so mineral rich, soaking in a solution of salt and water helps to instill the skin and body with minerals. In a process known as dermal absorption, the skin soaks up minerals from the water – sometimes even better than if we consumed the same minerals! Containing numerous minerals that are important for our health – including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium and zinc – Himalayan pink salt is one of the best things to soak in!
Relax & De-Stress
Soothing warm soaks & baths are one of life’s little pleasures. They help melt away the day’s worries and pressures, allowing you to switch off your mind and enjoy some peace. Research backs up the stress relieving effects of bathing. In fact, enjoying a mineral bath/soak is a type of therapy – known as balneotherapy. And what is full of minerals? Himalayan pink salt of course – the amount of benefits to not only soaking in it, as well ingesting it, are countless!
Ease Your Aches & Pains
Those who suffer with painful arthritis, sore or pulled muscles, stiff joints or a variety of other aches and pains will benefit enormously from a Himalayan pink salt water soak/bath. In 2012, scientists found that regularly soaking/bathing in this saline solution can help reduce the inflammation, and therefore the pain, associated with arthritis and similar conditions.
Sleep Like a Baby
If you’re one of the 60 million Americans who suffer from occasional or long-term sleep problems, you should give Himalayan pink salt soaks a go. Because of their proven stress relieving and inflammation fighting abilities, a salt bath can help you relax and wind-down before bedtime.
Deep Clean Your Skin
Salt has antibacterial and antiseptic properties making it a useful therapy for those with eczema, acne or psoriasis. The mineral content of a Himalayan salt bath can help maintain the protective barrier of the skin, while allowing it to hold in hydration – as is evidenced by the fact that your skin won’t wrinkle or prune after a salty dip. This is especially good news for those who avoid baths due to flaky or tight skin!
Have you ever experienced a ‘dead leg’, numbness of the limbs, a feeling of coldness in your extremities or one of these other warning signs of poor circulation? If so, a warm salt soak could be just what you need. It will cause your arteries and veins to expand, which gives more space for blood to flow. It’s just a temporary fix but, when used in conjunction with these other circulation-boosting ideas, it can get you on the path to full health again.
*It’s also a useful trick for those who want to get rid of their cellulite – another problem which is caused by poor blood circulation.
**Speak to your doctor before undertaking any kind of balneotherapy if you suffer from weak or poor heart circulation**
These salts work by drawing water (along with toxins) out of the body resulting in a temporarily slimmer waist and reduced thigh size. A quick ten-minute bath with added Himalayan salt before an event or big occasion should be all you need to see the inches come off…Dr. Oz and countless celebrities all recommend it!
Soothe Bites & Blisters
With antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s not surprising that a Himalayan salt soak will soothe painful or itchy insect bites and blisters. Research has also documented relief from poison ivy and poison oak.
