Gourmet Himalayan Salt - Pure and Natural

Himalayan Salt is quite different from salt found anywhere else. For one thing, it’s uniquely beautiful: it has a pinkish or light reddish tint, and under a microscope, the crystals within the salt form gorgeously perfect geometric patterns. Himalayan Salt, when left raw and in its natural state, is rich in nutrients and minerals. Since many of these elements found within each grain of salt naturally occur within us and in the environment, they are easily absorbed and utilized on a cellular level. Pink Himalayan Salt re-mineralizes the body with minerals and trace elements essential to our health and well being.

Uncompromised Quality & Value

Good Enough to Eat?
Salt from the Himalayas has long been enjoyed in culinary dishes; it tastes great, and has many trace minerals that other types of salt do not have. It goes by many different names, including “King’s Salt”, “White Gold”, and “Salt of Life”, all indicative of its value and high status.
In general, salt is thought of as a guilty pleasure. We all love to sprinkle it on our french fries, add copious amounts to our popcorn, and season our favorite dishes with just a dash to bring out the flavor. You have cravings for salty things like pretzels or tortilla chips and you indulge yourself, only to hear voices in your head scolding you: “watch that blood pressure!”, or “you’ve got a date tonight - one more chip and you’ll burst out of those skinny jeans”.

But what if salt was healthy?

Current research suggests that Himalayan salt just might be better for you than regular table salt. Before the advent of modern medicine, some say the salt was often utilized as a home remedy to combat symptoms of various illnesses. And in addition, gourmet cooks and food lovers prefer it over regular salt, and swear it tastes better.

Ordinary table salt is usually “cleaned” and goes through a chemical process that often robs it of many trace minerals and nutrients. Sodium chloride is the product left over after this harsh treatment - a somewhat unnatural form of salt that our bodies have a difficult time utilizing and digesting. Himalayan salt is delivered to you raw in its natural, pure form and contains minerals and nutrients from the Himalayan mountains.

High-quality, gourmet food-grade Himalayan salt is quite popular for consumption. Cooks use it in all kinds of dishes: omelettes, stir-fry, steak, and much more. In most cooking, fine-grain works best, but larger crystals are great for baked goods (think giant pretzels) and other dishes where large pieces of salt are preferred.

Humans aren’t the only ones that love to eat Himalayan salt - It has long been the preferred source of salt for salt licks among owners of livestock, due to its taste (even the animals like it best!), hardiness (it doesn’t break down, even in bad weather), and beauty.

Many believe that this salt could be the answer for those of us who wish to remain healthy and have a bit of sodium in our diet. Using a bit of in your recipes instead of ordinary table salt will bring your dishes to life!

Note: If your doctor recommends a low-sodium diet, please follow his or her advice when using all salts including Himalayan salt.

Questions Answered

Q: Why are your salts priced lower than anyone else out there?
A: The answer is quite simple. We import high volumes of premium quality Himalayan salts by the container load. Salt is our business and we sell a lot of it! And although Himalayan salt is a unique and wonderfully pristine salt, we don't believe that is should be sold for outrageously high prices.

Q: Can I really eat these salts?

A: Yes! In fact, about 75% of our customers at the San Francisco Bath Company are buying our Himalayan salt for consumption, since it’s gourmet food-grade salt.

Q: I’d like to buy this salt for bathing and for cooking. What grain sizes are best for each?
A: If you’d like to use Himalayan salt in your favorite food, a good rule of thumb is to buy a fine grain size. That way, you can use them in your tabletop salt shaker. When bathing, it’s up to you! Large grain sizes take longer to dissolve but also look beautiful. Smaller grain sizes dissolve faster and are also great to use as an exfoliant.

Q: Why are your prices so low?
A: We are a salts specialist and import in high volumes which allows us greater buying power. The cost savings is passed down to you the customer making all of our salts very inexpensive.

Q: How do I make sure I have the highest-quality Himalayan pink salts available? If you are unsure, we offer sample sizes for evaluation. And of course, all our Himalayan salt comes with a certificate of authenticity.
A: There are some businesses out there who will make some pretty wild claims about the salts they sell. At the San Francisco Bath Salt Company, we believe in only importing, and selling the highest quality Himalayan salt and complete consumer honest.  We bring you these salts in their natural, raw state - delivering all the minerals, nutrients, and magic of the Himalayas to our customers.
