Generally, Himalayan salt are used in the same way as ordinary table salt. They are used in bathing purposes, as well as culinary purposes. More recently, large crystal rocks dug out from the Himalayan region are also used as lamps.

Brine uses
One of the more common use of drinking salt brine is to cleanse the body, normalize alkaline/acidity levels in the body, and a source of natural energy for the body. Salt brine are also used in tooth brushing for soothing gum bleeding and reduces periodontal disease and other mount problems. Brine baths are also made using Himalayan salts using the concept of osmosis. Aside from above-mentioned uses , the salty solution can also be used to remedy certain skin conditions like acne, foot fungus and psoriasis.

Himalayan salt are also used the same way as regular salt, food seasoning and some drinks. Himalayan salts are also used as Kosher salt due to having a much larger grain size. It has a subtle difference in taste than regular table salt that some say makes it taste better.

Salt lamps/Tea lights
Himalayan salt crystal rocks are used in making lamps. These large crystal rocks are carved into their desired shape and size. The final shape of the crystal rock are then mounted on a wooden base for stability and an electrical bulb is fixed within the crystals hollow area illuminating the whole rock when it is lit. Health practitioners believe that these lamps are beneficial saying that the gentle heat from the bulb allows the crystal salt to emit negative electrical charges which removes positive ions.

Bath Additive
Its high mineral content makes Himalayan salts ideal to be used as an ingredient in making bath additives such as bath salts, bath bombs, and other related products like scrubs. Results in bathing water with Himalayan salts are believed to be beneficial to dry, oily, or combination skin and other skin related problems. Himalayan bath salts have also believed to treat PMS symptoms and can help people with sleeping problems.
