Eastport, NY (PressExposure) September 09, 2009 -- There is a significant difference between table salt and Himalayan salt. Ordinary table salt predominantly consists of sodium chloride. When salt is dried, most of the trace elements that the body needs is eliminated, leaving a mineral that isn't particularly beneficial. However, Himalayan salt is a pure and totally natural mineral salt containing up to 84 minerals and trace elements, high in negative ions. It is mined by hand and stone ground, eliminating impurities.
Millions of years ago, the sun dried up the primal sea and left the mineral-rich crystals we know today as Himalayan salt. Located deep within the Himalayan Mountains, this crystal salt is the purest salt on the planet. Covered in snow year round, the pristine environment of the Himalayas protects the salt from the pollutants that often permeate salt from the sea.
Himalayan salt is the purest, all-natural, unrefined, cleanest and most complete salt available. Using Himalayan bath salt offers many positive health benefits. The trace elements that are present exist in a form that is easily absorbed by the skin. Himalayan salt does not contain any type of environmental toxins or harmful chemicals.
In addition to its purity, Himalayan Bath Salt contains all-natural replenishing power stored within its crystals. Its bio-photon content is stored energy that releases when mixed with water, rejuvenating both mind and body. Soaking in the bath salt draws out toxins, soothes muscles and eases tension. Taking a salt bath will also make your skin cleaner and smoother. In addition, salt baths have a healing effect on conditions such as athlete's foot, nail fungus, wounds, skin irritations, insect bites, sun burn and blisters. It also serves as a therapy to joint diseases such as rheumatism.
Most of us are conscious about our physical appearance, especially our skin. Unlike taking an ordinary bath which can actually remove moisture from our skin, a Himalayan Salt Bath moisturizes by allowing water to be absorbed into the outer layer of the skin. Himalayan bath salt has also been known to alleviate severe cases of dry skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema.
Himalayan bath salt, contains 84 essential minerals, more than any other bath salt, including magnesium, potassium, bromide and calcium which are readily absorbed into the skin during a 15-30 minute bath.
