Himalayan Pink Salt Benefits

Enhance your sauna experience with Himalayan Pink Salt. The soft ambient glow of the salt crystals bring an even warmer and welcoming atmosphere to your sauna. Himalayan salt is known for being the purest salt on earth, rich in minerals and a natural detoxifier of the body and surrounding air. The unique beauty and wellness benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt are truly unbeatable.

Each brick of Himalayan Pink Salt is unique in itself, with different hues of pink and white that swirl together to give off the appearance of stained-glass. This unique coloring comes from a high concentration of minerals and trace elements. When gently heated by the warmth of your sauna, the salt crystals release these minerals enriching the quality of the surrounding air which, in turn, is breathed in and absorbed into the body. It is also thought that heating the Himalayan salt crystals activates the hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) properties of the salt. This process releases negatively charged ions that attach themselves to bacteria, dust, and other pollutants, cleansing and purifying the air.

Because it is naturally antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, halotherapy (salt therapy) is becoming increasingly popular for its therapeutic properties. Himalayan salt has been used as a way to combat respiratory discomfort, reduce seasonal allergy symptoms, and to draw out toxins from the body and skin. There are even thought to be detoxifying benefits from just setting your feet or hands on a heated brick of Himalayan Salt which can be done while enjoying your sauna.

 

Studies suggest that negative ions also work at a biochemical level, by increasing the serotonin in the body. An increase in serotonin can enhance your mood, alleviate stress, aid in digestion, and boost daytime energy. Imagine the way you feel when you’re at the beach or next to a waterfall. That clean, rejuvenating, and relaxing feeling is often directly related to the negative ions that are being released.

Other benefits of Himalayan Pink Salt come from the soft natural pink color. This color can be enhanced with the help of our Backlit Therapeutic Pink Salt.
