Pink Himalayan Salt contains a variety of natural minerals, including the iron oxide that gives it its signature pink colour. Himalayan Pink Salt is harvested from salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Chunks of mined salt are washed and dried in the sun, then gently grounded to specific sizes.
White Himalayan Salt is thought to be the rarest of Himalayan salts and is free of impurities while still containing all the benefits of the pink variety. It contains a large variety of minerals including calcium and potassium. It is believed to help balance PH levels, act as a digestive aid, reduce stress and increase energy. White Himalayan crystal mineral salt has a low iron content in the crystal which makes the difference between pink and white.
