Himalayan Salt comes from ancient salt deposits that have been crystallized for over 250 million years. Pure Himalayan Salt crystals are comprised of the same colloidal minerals that are required by the human body in order to sustain life.
According to popular belief the Himalayan salt mines were first discovered when Alexander the Great's horses started kicking the ground covering the salt. Seeing that horses with flesh wounds were healing faster than expected, the soldiers began checking to see what the horses were unearthing. Thus the rich Himalayan salt deposits were first discovered.
