Himalayan salt is salt derived from the Himalayan region of India. The Himalayan region is also known as the 'Land of the Thunderbird'. The name comes from a legend that a large bird called the 'Thunderbird' was once on a cloud shaped peak and was attacked by a huge serpent that was believed to be the symbol of death.
Himalayan pink salt is rock-salt obtained from the Himalayan region of India. The pinkish color of the salt is due to mineral impurities that occur naturally in the salt. It is most commonly used as table salt, as well as for cooking purposes, as decorative stones, as a material for food presentation and spa treatments, and as a decorative material for clothing.
High temperatures and high humidity make it ideal as an ornamental stone. This also makes it perfect for use as an ornament on a table setting, or in a jewelry box. The salt is soft and malleable and a fine dusting of the dust can easily adorn any surface. Because of the beautiful, soft qualities of this type of salt, pink Himalayan salt beads are also used in bead making and jewelry making.
Pink Himalayan salt beads are available at almost any jewelry store and wholesale crystal jewelry supplier. However, you should be careful in choosing your suppliers. Himalayan pink salt has different properties than normal table salt so you must purchase only from a supplier who offers table salt that meets specific quality standards. Himalayan salt beads can be purchased at wholesale crystal jewelry stores and online wholesale crystal jewelry suppliers.
Pink salt is also widely used in perfuming and as an odorless cleaning agent. Most perfumes contain ingredients such as alcohol, lemon oil, Cologne, and lavender oil which are extracted from Himalayan pink salt.
Pink salt is frequently used in Chinese acupuncture treatments because of its relaxing properties. The same properties make it an excellent antiseptic agent, a powerful deodorant, an astringent, and an anti-inflammatory agent. Himalayan pink salt has been found to be an effective and safe agent in the treatment of skin infections, especially if applied externally.
It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine since ancient times as a preservative and a remedy for wounds. The use of the salt is still used to preserve food and drink and has even become fashionable with the use of the salt as wedding favors.
In addition to being an ornamental stone, Himalayan pink salt has proven beneficial to health. Although there are no documented cases of toxicity associated with it, many people feel that using the stone in conjunction with other natural ingredients can help to improve overall health. Himalayan salt has been shown to increase resistance to colds, relieve itching, promote healthy digestion, fight bacterial infections and even to ease the symptoms of arthritis.
Pink salt is not considered to be an effective treatment against colds, but it is very effective in aiding the body's ability to produce its own immune system. It is an excellent natural way to detoxify the body.
Another reason that pink salt is becoming popular among women is because it is thought to help to reduce stress. It is a wonderful alternative to prescription drugs for treating anxiety and panic disorders. Women's stress levels are often very high at times. Pink salt has also been proven to help in treating depression, irritability, and mood swings.
Pink salt is a great alternative to over the counter medications. It can also help to treat high blood pressure. High blood pressure is known to cause the heart to beat faster and more rapidly, causing a feeling of pain or burning in the chest.
It is also beneficial to reduce wrinkles and age spots. A study conducted by the University of Florida indicated that the addition of pink salt to the skin, either on the outer or inside of the eye, has been found to help to reduce the formation of freckles and sores on the skin. In addition, it was found to promote elasticity and to lessen skin inflammation. Pink salt has also been found to have beneficial effects on the skin when applied topically or taken internally.
