Himalayan crysal salt is the cleanest, purest and most natural salt found anywhere on earth. It has a miriad of health benefits when used internally or externally or as a lamp or tea-light holder.

Himalayan Crystal salt was formed millions of years ago as the sun dried up the primal ocean, this salt deposit was then compressed and recompressed below the earths surface making it into the most perfect geometric structure possible in rock crystals. This salt is absolutely pure and free from any additives, colourings or anti-caking agents. Himalayan crystal salt contains an almost identical set of minerals to those found in the human body. 84 of the 92 trace minerals our blood contains can be found in Himalayan crysal salt in the same proportions.

Himalayan Crystal salt has also been called King salt  because it used to be reserved purely for royal use, the commoners only got rock salt. It has also been know as white gold and salt of life.


Himalayan crystal salt can be used as a condiment, drunk dissilved in water, used for cooking, an inhaler for respiratory problems, added to a hot bath, used with oil as a skin softening rub, made into lamps, candle holders and fire bowls and a mineral and salt lick for our pets and livestock.

Normal table salt consists mainly of sodium chloride with other addititves including anti-caking agents, when used in excess it causes serious problems to our health. Doctors and therapists now addvise against adding table salt to food, as most contains sufficient for our needs already. Himalayan salt is suitable for those on a low sodium diet and those who wish to improve their diet and health by using an alternative that is rich in  essential minerals.

Rock lamps provide a warm glowing light that is both pleasing to the eye and very relaxing. They inprove the look, feel and atmosphere of any room they are placed in. Salt lamps increase the number of healthy negative ions which has been shown  to produce a calm feeling of well being and to reduce the number of indoor born pollutants. The salt lamp naturally attracts moisure and when the bulb or candle is lit this moisure evaporates releassing negative ions into the air. Negative ions have known health benefits, they may - 

  • Provide relief from some types of headache
  • Relive allergies and hay fever
  • lessen the severity of asthma attacks
  • increase allertness and concentration
  • Boost the immune system
