Himalayan Pink salt is a pure, hand-mined salt found in the Himalayan Mountains of Pakistan. The salt crystals range in colour from white to pink to deep red. This salt was deposited through the evaporation of pre-historic seas and has been hidden beneath the mountains for millions of years. It is known for its healing properties and has been used in a variety of natural remedies, bath products and spa treatments for centuries.
In a culinary setting, Himalayan Pink salt is used as a replacement for table salt and can be ground to a finer consistency in a salt mill.
