Himalayan Pink Salt is a salt with many health benefits. It’s pure and natural and contains over 80 trace minerals that the body needs. The salt is mined in the Himalayan Mountains and nothing has been added to the salt or taken away. It’s over 250 million years old.
One change that you can easily make is swopping the salt that you add to food to Himalayan pink salt. I love it and use nothing else now. It might take you a little while to get used to the color but you do feel that little bit purer when you use it.
Himalayan pink salt will help to regulate the water content of the body; it promotes a healthy pH balance in the cells and helps with their electrolyte balance.
Interestingly it helps with leg cramps which are often associated with excess salt intake, which of course could be coming from the packaged foods that you are eating. And it can support respiratory health, and vascular health, quite the opposite to the effect of common table salt.
Himalayan salt bath benefits include energetically purifying and rejuvenating your personal energy field and aura, repairing any holes in the aura and removing any blockages.
It promotes spiritual, mental and emotional balance by purifying your body of negativity.
The Himalayan salt bath benefits can also help to regulate sleep and relieve stress, which will encourage an overall sense of harmony within your day to day life.
When you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, stressed and energetically heavy, try a Himalayan salt bath! You will feel much lighter and calmer afterward.
What you need for your Himalayan Salt Bath:
- Glass of water (to drink during)
- Pink Himalayan Salt Rocks—we recommend placing 2-4 salt rocks in your bath
- Candles, if you would like
Since this is an energy cleansing bath, we recommend showering before so that you are not mixing any soap or shampoo in your bath.
Fill your bathtub with 4-5 inches of water, and then add your Himalayan salt rocks. Stir the bath water around until the salt is mostly dissolved.
Fill the tub up fully. When you get into your detox bath, you want to submerge as much of your body as you can for around 20-30 minutes.
Sip your water throughout your bath so you do not feel dehydrated afterward.
After your time is up, make sure that you do not rinse off; just allow your skin to dry naturally or gently pat dry. We also recommend that you rest for 20-30 minutes after your bath, as these baths are quite powerful!
Some people like to sync their salt baths with the lunar cycle, as they are said to be the most powerful during a Full Moon and New Moon.
Bathing with Himalayan salt rocks during a full moon is very good for healing, as the healing potential is at its max and mineral absorption is optimized.
During a new moon, the cleansing energy is at its peak, so your body has a higher potential of completely detoxifying itself. But salt baths are healing and detoxifying at any time.
