The phenomenon of Himalayan salt and its origins
The Himalayan salt inside the pad has a valuable commodity for centuries and is known for its pink color and health benefits. Let’s look at some facts and history behind it.
History: over 250 million years ago in the Jurassic era the salt deposits were formed when the sea was landlocked and evaporated and pushed up to a mountain. The Himalayas region ranges between Pakistan, Nepal, and India. However, it was first discovered and mined in Khewra Punjab Pakistan for the first time. The great Alexandra was crossing the region and noticed his horses licking the mountain in the 1200s. Since then, the mining has started in Khewra mine.
The actual use started by Nepalese to preserve fishes back in the days. Furthermore, it is utilized for food consumption instead of the sea salt. The minerals compositions include magnesium, chromium, copper, iron, lead, zinc, lead, etc. The sea salt is not as purified as the rock salt, due to the impurities they contain such as bleach and other chemicals. However, not all the rock Himalayan salt is suitable for food consumption and industrial use standard. Mostly one of the most famous mines for mining food standard is the worlds oldest mine in Punjab district of Pakistan. It is hand-mined and is known as the world’s purest form of salt.
Apart from health benefits of consuming it in food and being rich in minerals; another advantage to adding the rock crystals to the pad for heat therapy purposes is that the crystals can hold temperatures and transfer the warmth into the body.
Rock salt has been in use for therapeutic health gains in the form of lamps, barbeque blocks for cooking, licks for horse’s health, spa rooms, bathing, inhalers, and more.
