300 million years ago, a vast ocean covered the area that became the Himalayan mountain range. The salt from that ocean was preserved as large crystal formations, which now yield the purest salt on earth. Bio-energetically alive, this crystal salt contains the same 84 key trace minerals as our bodies, so it is easily metabolized. The hand-crushed salt is pinkish in color due to the minerals it contains. Aloha Bay`s Himalyan Crystal Salt is 100% Pure Organic Salt with No additives.
