The Benefits & Uses of Pink Himalayan Salt

Mined from the Salt Range mountains of Pakistan, Pink Himalayan Salt has made its way into many homes across the globe, and for a good reason! It is naturally mined and contains no additives that are commonly found in regular table salt. It boasts the same common minerals as regular table salt; however, it also includes a reported 84 different essential and trace minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron. Because Pink Himalayan Salt is jam-packed with minerals, it also touts enhanced health benefits making it a well-loved necessity in any home! Let’s look at our favorite ways to use our Pink Himalayan Salt (plus it’s available in coarse and fine grain).

Cooking

Plant Therapy is proud to offer high-quality, food-grade Pink Himalayan salt packed with healthy minerals, making it perfect for the kitchen. You can use it to season meats, vegetables, and everything in between. If you’ve got a hankering to get creative in the kitchen, try creating your own seasoning salt by mixing our Pink Himalayan Salt with some of your other favorite spices. For an every day, full-bodied season salt, mix a cup of our Fine Grain Pink Himalayan Salt with  1 tablespoon smoked peppercorn, 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon cumin, ½ tsp onion powder, and a little crushed red pepper. Trust us. It’s delicious! Keep in mind that while our Pink Himalayan Salt is a delicious alternative to regular table salt, it does not contain any iodine, which is a necessary nutrient.
