Khewra pink salt is known as the white gold of the Himalayas

In the recent past, the discovery of Himalayan pink salt has opened up many avenues of industrial and nutritional study. This salt is acclaimed for its unique mineral content and the geographical value it is associated with.

Found in the sea-bed layer of the Himalayan belt, this salt is believed to be a remnant of the sea that used to cover the mountains many years ago. The lava that flows in this region covered up the salt reserve and protected it from contamination. Being embedded in the lower crust of the earth, the salt imbibed high iron contents which have lent it its popular pink colour.

Pink salt is found near the mountains that border Pakistan, and is not entirely Indian. It is mined by hand, in the Khewra mines of Pakistan, and exported at cheap rates to India, where it is processed, and exported out to the world as a product of India. Mining in Khewra is highly restricted and performed with great care to make sure that the purity of the salt is unaffected.

This salt has culinary uses outside India, but for the most part, within the country, it is used in Ayurveda, therapy, and for aesthetic purposes. Himalayan salt is said to have properties that alleviate asthma, allergies, and even respiratory disorders. If consumed, it can regulate water content, and electrolyte balance in the body. Salt blocks are placed under the ingredients and are cooked slowly to incorporate the flavour into the dish.

Because of its long abode inside the earth, it is believed that the salt contains earth's potential energy. In many households, a block of pink salt is placed in the living room to regulate the energy around the place. Walls of salt are also installed to cleanse the air and provide better breathing.

Using Himalayan salt in beauty products reduces the toxicity from the chemicals present in them. Adding a few crystals in bath water reduces stress, improves blood circulation, and targets cellulite. Salt lamps are also used to dissipate the concentration of ions in the air. They release negative ions which rid the air of dust, pollen, and neutralize the ions released from electronic devices. Owing to all these properties, pink salt is referred to as 'White Gold', and is greatly valued.
