By on October 30, 2009

The origin of rock salt comes from the sea bed that evaporated million years ago. It left behind crystallized deposits of this pure, therapeutic salt form which contains all the elements found in our human body. Rock salt is possibly the purest form of salt, which is free from environmental pollutants, chemical components and does not require a refining process. It contains pure minerals such as Calcium, Iron, Zinc, Potassium, Magnesium, Copper and all the other 84 minerals. Its benefits are best experienced when used in its natural state.

Rock salt is used externally and internally and is easily absorbed as its composition of minerals is similar to what we contain in our bodies. Some of the benefits of using rock salt are:-

•   Skin benefits – it helps in exfoliating dead skin cells, cleansing skin pores and protecting the natural skim layer to produce healthy and energized skin type.  It also helps in strengthening skin tissue to rejuvenate the skin to make it look younger and firm.

•   Antioxidant – it helps in getting rid of toxic minerals and refined salt deposits by stimulating blood circulation and mineral balance.

•   As a Cure – Rock salt is used as a home remedy to cure many disorders and ailments. It used to treat many kinds of skin disorders and other ailments such as rheumatic pains and herpes. It can also be consumed along with lemon juice to eliminate stomach worms and control vomiting.

It is even used to reduce pain, inflammation and irritation from insect bites.

For proper functioning of the body at any point of time, in addition to water the body also requires almost half a kilogram of salt. It is essential for nourishment of minerals, water absorption, enhancing communication between cells and overall functioning of the body.
