Chances are Himalayan Salt has made it into your home in some way or another. Maybe you’ve used it in cooking or maybe you’ve enjoyed the soft amber glow of a Himalayan salt lamp. But there are so many more amazing benefits to be had!
Soothing Bath Salts
For those of us adults who actually get the chance to luxuriate in a bath, it can be an incredibly relaxing experience. Himalayan bath salts can make the experience even better. They are incredibly mineral rich and natural. Himalayan salts can help soothe skin suffering from eczema and also help ease muscle pain. Plus the salt is good for skin and help it feel soft and smooth. You can even combine them with essential oils to maximize the benefits.
Another fantastic use for Himalayan salt is as a scrub! Use it to help remove dead skin cells, smooth out rough patches or even just prep for shaving. Check out a few of our favorite DIYs that you can use during your bath or shower routine.

A salt inhaler is probably one of the lesser known ways to use Himalayan Salt, but it shouldn’t be overlooked! It can help bring down inflammation and ease breathing. But how does it work? Basically, when you breathe through a Himalayan salt inhaler, moisture present in the air you breathe gathers microscopic particles of Himalayan salt from the inhaler and brings them to your lung. This, in turn, helps brings down inflammation by moistening mucus membranes in your lungs.

Lastly, Himalayan Salt makes for a great method of passive diffusion. It’s natural and it’s beautiful to look at. Just put a small amount in a decorative bowl or dish, add a few drops of your favorite essential oils, and enjoy!
