Himalayan Sole

Himalayan salts, rich in natural minerals. These have been used for centuries by my ancestors. When my parents lived in India, they lived close to the foothills of the Himalayan mountain range so they know all about the many benefits this salt has. My mum used it in her scrubs and skin tonics. Funny how things change. There was a myth in the 70’s that table salt was better as it had all the impurities taken out!!!

There are many things that have now been accepted from the east and this is one of them.

When the original Himalayan crystal salt stones were made, they naturally dissolved in the spring water from the mountains. I don’t know when it became known as Sole pronounded Solay , since Sole is derived from the Latin word for sun “sol”, and the liquid materialisation of sunlight, Sole means “liquid sunlight” or “liquid light energy.”

Drinking Sole water can help stabilise and balance pH levels in the body. It also helps flush out toxins, which are removed by the ‘ions’ in the pure salt and the trace minerals which act at a cellular level to pull toxins out. It can help to improve energy levels if taken regularly due to dense mineral content.

Himalayan Salt is considered the purest form of salt available. Hand-cut slabs of subtle pinkish salt are obtained from the natural deposits found in the Himalayan foothills of Punjab. Once mined, they are washed by hand, keeping them intact and unprocessed which is why it is known as the purest salt on earth.
