Rock salt is among the purest forms of salt, devoid of environmental pollutants and chemical components. It contains 84 out of the 92 trace elements required by the body, including calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, magnesium, copper and so on. A lot of the time, this salt is called himalayan salt or pink salt. Unlike processed white salt, this salt is incredibly good for you and doesn’t raise your sodium and cholesterol levels in the same way traditional salts do.
The consumption of rock salt is a powerful aid for digestion and is often prescribed for laxatives and digestion disorders. It improves appetite, removes gas and soothes heartburn.
It facilitates the cellular absorption of minerals, and plays an important role in replenishing the body’s electrolytes and maintaining the body’s pH balance.
It also aids in weight loss by equalizing minerals which inhibit cravings and eliminate dead fat cells. Finally, rock salt stabilizes blood pressure, and cures rheumatic pain and herpes, inflammation and irritation from insect bites.
Rock Salt Lamps are very simply, lamps made of rock salt. The aroma created by these lamps help relax the body and mind, and is often a useful tool in relieving and managing stress.
Salt Lamps are natural negative ion generators, which is caused in the unique combination of salt and the light source inside the lamp. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts water (even mild humidity), to its surface which then quickly evaporates due to the heat from the light. The negative ions are generated during this evaporation process.
Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, the rock salt lamp can actually neutralize them by its generation of negative ions. For this reason, Salt Lamps are excellent for decoration around the house. They are simply great Feng-Shui!
You can also put rock salt into bath-water and it soothes and relaxes your muscles, and stimulates good sleep, lowers your blood pressure, and detoxifies your body!
