Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Best By Date?
A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality. It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and usable for a long time. Best By Dates on USDA.gov

This is the highest grade of Himalayan Pink Salt available in the market today. Many pink salts claim to be Himalayan but are in fact from other parts of the world such as South America, Eastern Europe and Australia with different structure and minerals and potentially pollutants. In addition even some salts which come from Tibet and Pakistan are simply sea salts fortified with some Himalayan Crystal Salt so they look the right color. For this reason, it is very important to ensure that your source is truly supplying you with authentic Original Himalayan Crystal Salt.
Choose from Fine Granulated, Coarse Granulated, and Salt Stones. Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® contains 84 minerals in almost identical ratios to what exist in our blood. The crystal minerals are in ionic form, meaning they are so small that they can be absorbed straight into a cell instead of through the blood stream like we do with normal food.
Looking at common table salt under a microscope you can see that the unnatural crystals are totally isolated from each other and dead. In order for the body to try to metabolize these crystals, it must sacrifice tremendous amounts of energy with very little results, resulting in a damaging loss and zero gain. The salt deposits in our bodies look similar to this photo, isolated and dead. The regular table salt shows no vibrant crystalline structure but exclusively dead crystals.
Sea salt displays structure, however, the crystals are isolated and disconnected from their important, vital elements. Therefore, an ionized assimilation of the elements cannot be guaranteed. Because of this, the vital minerals, however many it may contain, cannot be absorbed by the body unless the body expends tremendous energy to vitalize them.
The balanced crystalline structure of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® reveals fine branching, no shadows or rough edges. The crystal is not isolated from the inherent mineral elements (84), but is connected to them in a harmonious state. This tells us that the energy content, in the form of minerals, is balanced and can be easily metabolized by the body. This crystal salt is full of life. When taken as food, it will have a vital and positive energetic effect on the body. The result is only a net gain for the body with zero energy loss.
What differentiates our salt with other brands:
#1 Method of Salt Mining
The large mines where most of the grocery store Himalayan Salt comes from are in Pakistan. Explosives are used to open the area to be mined. Laborers bore 5-foot-deep holes into the rock face with hand-cranked drills, stuff them with gunpowder, set fuses and run for cover. Once the dust settles, trucks go into the mines to collect the salt.
Metal grinders are used to break down the salt, and shards of metal can end up mixed in the salt.
The working conditions in these huge mines are dangerous. According to Azmad Malik, a former deputy chief of the salt-workers union, scarcely a week passes without a report of a fatal accident. The miners live in medieval conditions.
Alternatively, our salt is found in a remote location high in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, where it is carefully mined by hand.
From here it is transported by donkey along a dirt mountain road to our facility where it is cleaned, hand-sorted, and stone-ground according to traditional methods, and hand-packed locally.
This preserves the salt’s natural vibration and inherent energy, and is the only way to ensure that all 84 minerals remain in perfect crystalline form essential for optimal bio-availability.
#2 How the Miners are Treated
Unlike salt mines that only focus on revenue, and are willing to sacrifice the health and well-being of their workers, our workers are treated fairly and are being paid a living wage (and are never exploited).
#3 Salt Structure
Our salt has a structure that is substantially more perfect and contains the full 84 minerals that are the building blocks of life and vitality and exist in your blood and cells today.
What is Sole Water?
The mixture of water and Original Himalayan Crystal Salt®, called "sole" (so-lay), is the ultimate infusion of ionized minerals, the primordial soup of life, and the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy. When water and this salt come together they create this new dimension, Sole. In German, the word sole, which is derived from the Latin word "sol", means sun. Sole means fluid sunlight or fluid light energy. Sole is the fluid materialization of sunlight. When water combines with salt the positive ions of sodium surround the negative ions of the water molecules and the negative ions of chloride surround the positive ions of the water molecules. The other 82 mineral elements found in the salt also ionize and split into other complex ionized compounds. In this process the physical or geometrical, as well as the chemical structure of the salt and the water, is changed and a totally new structure is formed, a third dimension. Water is no longer water and salt is not salt anymore. This combination produces a ocean of pure energy for your body.
How to Make Sole Water
Everyone knows that salt dissolves in water, right? But did you know that if you keep adding salt to a glass of water you’ll get to a point where the water becomes super-salty or saturated with salt? Did you also know that when the water becomes super-salty or saturated with salt that the salt will just sit on the bottom of the glass without dissolving? This is exactly what the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Sole is, super-saturated, salty water.
Place 1 inch of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® stones in a glass jar, preferably one with a lid. Add 2 to 3 inches of good quality artesian or spring water above the stones, completely covering the crystals with water. Let sit overnight. If all the salt crystals have dissolved, add a few more salt crystals to the water. Your Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Sole is ready when the water becomes fully saturated with salt and cannot hold any more.
The salt will no longer dissolve at this stage. Your finished Sole should resemble the photo above. There should always be salt crystals in the jar. As you use up the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Sole, after some time, add more water and more salt until the water is again saturated. Remember, there should always be undissolved salt crystals on the bottom of the jar. This is your visual proof that the water is totally saturated with salt.
Each morning, before eating or drinking anything, add one teaspoon of the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Sole to a glass of artesian or spring water and drink. Your body will receive the energetic vibration pattern of the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® and hold it for 24 hours. Keep the container covered to prevent the water from evaporating. Otherwise, no special storage is needed.
The fully saturated Original Himalayan Crystal Salt® Sole will keep forever! Salt is a natural anti-bacterial and natural fungicide. It simply cannot spoil or go bad.
