Himalayan Sea Salt + Why You Should Be Drinking Pink Salt Water

By September 18, 2017 No Comments

September’s box has inspired us to learn more about the uses and healing properties of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt. We’ve been using it to salt our food dishes but it goes far beyond that! To get a boost of caffeine-free energy, you can add a pinch of pink salt to your morning lemon water or smoothie each day. To experience the full benefits of Himalayan pink salt, make sole (pronounced Solay).?Comes from the Latin “Sol” meaning Sun. Essentially, it is water that has been fully saturated with natural salt, in this case, pink salt from the Himalayas. ? This is the form of the salt that is easiest for the body to absorb.

Himalayan Pink Sea Salt is packed with over 84 trace minerals and elements that make it incredibly nourishing for your body – think helping detoxify, boosting energy, and natural rehydration.?

In an interview with Lauren Conrad, Holistic nutritionist Kelly LeVeque explains how pink salt water makes a great sports drink: “When we sweat and workout we lose minerals (or electrolytes), and sole is a great way to add them back in the body with water. Himalayan Pink Salt is packed with over 84 trace minerals and elements, as opposed to table salt that is 97.5% sodium chloride. Excess sodium increases your risk of hypertension, osteoporosis, and kidney disease, whereas the diversity of elements in Himalayan pink salt is shown to create an electrolyte balance within your body, strengthen bones, lower blood pressure, and improve circulation. It also helps to protect the delicate balance of minerals in your cells, avoid excess water retention, and prevent premature aging. Every cell needs a balance of potassium and sodium.”

Intrigued? Make your own Himalayan Salt Water Sole. Here’s how:

What you’ll need:


  1. Fill a jar to about 1/4 of the way with pink salt.
  2. Add water to the jar, leaving some space at the top to add more salt later.
  3. Put the lid on the jar and give a gentle shake.
  4. Leave it on the counter overnight for the salt to dissolve.
  5. The next day you should still see some salt at the bottom of the jar that cannot be absorbed by water. This is how you know you’ve made sole!
  6. If you don’t see any salt at the bottom, add more pink salt to the mixture and let it sit for another day.
  7. Once complete, you can now get creative with your sole solution! Enjoy!
