Oh ho ho! Pink Himalayan Salt! How fancy can you get? I mean, just say it out loud with me: “We don’t use regular salt, we use pink Himalayan salt”. I’m willing to bet a dollar that you said the second part with a bit more haughtiness than the first. That aside, pink Himalayan salt is pretty good for the skin. So let’s dig in!

Story time! So a few years ago there was this guy called Alexander who was taking a leisurely ride through India with his army. When the army stopped to rest, Alexander noticed that the horses were licking the rocks. He thought that was pretty weird and took some home to take a look at. It turned out that the rocks were salt and a mine was constructed to dig up more of it. The mine was passed through different hands through out history, but today it is known as the Khewra Salt Mine, Pakistan’s oldest and largest mine, the second largest mine in the world, and the main source of Himalayan salt.

Now if you google pink Himalayan salt you wouldn’t be able to swing your cursor around without hitting an article about how incredibly healing and purifying and miraculous pink Himalayan salt is. For example, many articles say that pink himalayan salt contains more than eighty minerals and elements. That’s a bit of an over exaggeration. But that’s the internet right?
