Himalayan salt is a natural and healthy product that comes from the Himalayas, a mountain range that extends across Pakistan, India, Nepal, China and Bhutan. The salt is extracted from the Khewra Salt Mine, the second largest salt mine in the world, located in the Punjab province of Pakistan.

Himalayan salt is known for its purity, quality and richness in minerals and trace elements. It contains no fewer than 84 of the 92 elements that also occur in the human body, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. These elements have a positive influence on human health and well-being. They contribute to a good fluid balance, healthy blood pressure, a strong bone structure, proper functioning of the muscles and nerves, optimal metabolism and strengthening the immune system.

One of the ways to use Himalayan salt for skin and respiratory care is through a spa bath or a neti pot. A spa bath is a bath in which a certain amount of salt is dissolved to give the water a composition similar to seawater or amniotic fluid. A neti pot is a small jar with a spout that is used to rinse the nasal passages with a saline solution. Both methods aim to relax, cleanse and vitalize the body.

To prepare a spa bath or a neti pot you need Himalayan salt that is especially suitable for these applications. This salt is finer ground than the salt you use in cooking and contains no additives or anti-caking agents. You can order this salt online or buy it at a health food store or drugstore.

To make a spa bath, you need about 50 grams of Himalayan salt per liter of water. This amounts to approximately 2 pounds of salt for a standard bathtub. Fill the bath with warm water (about 37°C) and dissolve the salt in it. Remain in the bath for about 20 to 30 minutes and then rinse your body with clean water. Gently dry your skin with a towel and let the salt work for a while. After the bath, drink enough water to hydrate your body.

To use a neti pot, you need about half to a whole teaspoon of Himalayan salt per 250 ml of water. This amounts to approximately 2 to 4 grams of salt per neti pot. Fill the neti pot with lukewarm water (about 35°C) and dissolve the salt in it. Stand or sit over a sink and insert the spout of the neti pot into your right nostril. Tilt your head slightly to the left and let the water flow in through your right nostril. The water will come out through your left nostril. Repeat this process with your left nostril. Afterwards, blow your nose thoroughly to remove any residual saltwater.
