Red Alaea Salt has been the traditional salt used on the Hawaiian islands to season and preserve most of the inhabitants’ foods, and its mesmerizing color, bold flavor, and signature taste profile make it a favorite of countless chefs around the world. It has a gorgeous deep red color because this salt is created through natural evaporation when it is trapped in tidal pools and mixes with red volcanic clay. The red color comes from the extremely high amount of iron in the clay, and this salt is said to contain up to 80 different naturally occurring minerals. Red alaea salt has a mellow flavor that goes well with all kinds of dishes as well as soups and stews. It is gaining popularity as a topping for chocolate desserts and ice cream as well! When used in soaps, baths, or scrubs it will add a reddish hue from the clay.

Himalayan pink salt is one of the finest salts available for culinary, therapeutic and cosmetic uses. This luxurious and delectable salt has beautifully formed crystals which range in color from off-white to a lustrous pink. Himalayan pink salt is a hand-mined salt that is derived from ancient sea salt deposits and it is believed to be the purest form of salt available.

Use Himalayan pink salt in bath salt recipes, body scrubs, aromatherapy, homemade soap, and all types of culinary and spa applications. Himalayan pink salt was originally formed from marine fossil deposits over 250 million years ago during the Mesozoic era. Harvested from ancient sea beds, this rare and extraordinary salt has been a valuable commodity for centuries. Historically, the people of the Himalayas used this salt to preserve their fish and meat throughout the year, and every spring they transported the salt to Nepalese valleys for trade.

Himalayan pink salt is still extracted from mines by hand, according to long-standing tradition, and without the use of any mechanical devices or explosion techniques. After being hand-selected, the salt is then hand-crushed, hand-washed, and dried in the sun. It should be noted that most of the commercial supply on the market today is coming from the mountainous region of Pakistan. It is recommended that this salt be stored in an air tight, covered container in a cool, dry place.
