Original Himalayan Crystal Salt contains 84 trace minerals in almost identical ratios to what exist in our blood. The structure of the crystals are so perfect and size of the particles so small that they can be absorbed into the cell and metabolized by the body. This salt is the healthiest and tastiest salt on the market. We highly recommend that you use only a ceramic salt grinder or salt mill in order to preserve the inherent vibrational pattern of these crystals. Exposure to metal for prolonged periods may alter the frequency pattern of salt. Use as you would any table salt as a seasoning and for all of your cooking and baking needs.
