What is Himalayan salt and why does it have so many benefits?
Himalayan salt is a rock salt naturally infused with minerals. The supposed benefits come from minerals such as iron, chromium, zinc, lead, copper, and many more.
Salt therapy comes in many forms. The inhalant therapy is an entire room filled with the Himalayan salt and the aroma of salt air which is pumped throughout. The salty air and salt in which you lay or sit in travels through the respiratory system, detoxing the lungs and sinuses.
Himalayan Salt Lamps are most recognized for their air purifying properties. The lamps attract moisture from the air which then travels to the lamp surface. When the lamp is on the warmth will evaporate the water quickly. The air will soon be free of toxins, dust, pollen, and allergens.
Himalayan Detox Baths are serviced in centers and home spas which is a bath designed to relax, rejuvenate, and detox the skin. The salt infused water dissolves the minerals and when it works magic on one’s skin, a deep cleansing and draw out of toxins will take place.
There are many more methods to reap the benefits of Himalayan salt, but we have provided you with the most common methods. Reach out to your local spa or healing center to see what Himalayan services they can offer.
