Looking for Salt? We got you! post thumbnail image

Salt is a kitchen staple. Most of us have salt at home, in our kitchens, and those of us who are very dedicated to flavor have them in our desk drawer! Typically when we think of salt, we think of either sea salt or iodized salt. However, there are many salts and flavors for you to explore that are much more than just plain old kitchen table salt.  And, we carry many of them!

All Natural Sea Salt

Pure Ocean®Sea Salt is all-natural and unrefined. Made white by the sun and sea, the sparkling crystals are collected from the salt ponds, carefully crushed, and screened to size, which generally runs from fine to extra coarse to large chunks.  Ideal for use in various applications, from tabletop and spice blends to food processing, salt mills, and many more applications.  Physically, our body uses salts to balance fluids, so while over-consuming salt is not recommended, using the balanced right amount can aid in good health. Our salt is one of the highest quality on the market.  It is purified while protecting the unique characteristics of each grain. Simple and pure with zero additives, allergens, or anti-caking agents, our salt offers consistent and balanced flavor and texture. We sell this salt in both fine (table ready) or coarse (for grinders).

In Magick, white sea salt is generally considered a purifying agent and can aid in protection and healing.

Pink Himalayan Salt

Ancient Ocean® Our Pink Himalayan Sea Salt is a full-flavored, all-natural mineral salt harvested from ancient sea salt deposits found deep in the Himalayan Mountains. It is a full-flavored, all-natural mineral salt harvested from ancient sea salt deposits deep in the Himalayan Mountains.  Our Pink Himalayan salt is carefully sourced from FDA-registered suppliers, guaranteed authentic, and ethically mined.  Our supplier then processes it in their state-of-the-art cleaning facility to remove any unwanted debris and ensure purity.  Our Himalayan salt is never heated or refined; there are no additives of any kind, simply the highest quality & most delicious unadulterated Himalayan pink salt possible. Our coarse Himalayan pink salt is meant for use in salt grinders.

While Himalayan pink salt can contain minerals that table salt does not, these minerals exist only in small quantities. Scientists don’t believe that the amount of additional minerals in Himalayan pink salt is large enough to make a significant difference in your diet. However, it does have the same benefits that regular salt does. Many believe that salt therapy, which involves inhaling air infused with salt, is beneficial for respiratory conditions. Scientists have found statistically significant improvement in questionnaires given to respondents with COPD who used a dry salt inhaler.

Although more research is needed here, salt is believed to have several beneficial effects for various skin conditions like eczema, but this may also depend on where it’s sourced. The National Eczema Association recommends adding a cup of pure salt (with no additives or caking ingredients) salt to bathwater as a relief for eczema flare-ups.  Salt is also necessary for maintaining adequate and balanced hydration levels in the body. Getting enough salt, especially before or after vigorous exercise, is needed to prevent dehydration caused by lost water and salt, a condition called hyponatremia.

In Magick, you can use pink Himalayan salt to purify an area (hence why a Salt lamp is so often used for this purpose).  It can also purify and cleanse crystals for you (use a salt plate!)

It is also commonly used in bath and beauty products. Our coarse red salt is meant for use in salt grinders.

Traditionally indigenous peoples used red Hawaiian salt to cleanse, purify, bless tools, canoes, homes, temples, and healing rituals for medicinal purposes like treatment for broken bones, bug bites, burns, and other ailments.

This authentic local ingredient can be the star of South American cuisine-inspired dishes with its mild, balanced flavor.  Its color and characteristic flavor, famously more complex than table salt, is derived from the wide range of minerals that make up the salt. It can be used at any time during cooking or as a finishing salt.  Andean Pink Salt is one of a kind. It comes from natural saltwater springs high in the Andes. It’s been harvested there for centuries, and collection methods have changed little in that time. This Pink Salt is cultivated in terraces lining a mountain face, not unlike rice. Water from the springs fills the pools formed in each terrace, and the salt is harvested through evaporation.
