Pink Himalayan Salt Soap

This is the most popular soap we ever made…. vibrant scent of eucalyptus and exotic lemongrass fill the room!  We use only essential oil which should not affect the sensitive allergies.  And this gentle cold processed soap recipe is special, unique, exciting.  Blended into the soap formula is a sizable amount of pink Himalayan salt, mined from deep within the Himalayan Mountain range in Asia.  The soap doesn’t lather as much as others we make, but the cleaning and antiseptic quality of the salt make it well worth it!

The soap is made of Olive, Coconut and Palm Oil blended with Eucalyptus and Lemongrass essential oil, pink Himalayan salt and Shea Butter.  The soap is cold processed, using a larger mold, so each bar is 3″ x 3″.  These are larger bars of soap!!!

Pink Himalayan Salt is mined from deep within the Himalayan Mountain Range.  The salt has a pink color because of the rich amount of minerals in addition to sodium chloride.  The salt formed deep within the mountain range during the Jurassic period in geology… a time when the dinosaurs roamed the earth.  Pressed down by deep layers of earth and rock, the salt is pure, free of modern day pollution.  And from long amounts of time in the earth this salt contains a variety of beneficial minerals bound to the sodium chloride, giving a pink to red hue to the crystals.  The salt we purchase is certified organic, free of any chemical agents and certified kosher, should you choose to consume it.

Adding salt to a cold processed soap recipe ensures a gentle scrubbing action with lavish suds and a salt exfoliation of loose skin.  Salt has been used since ancient times as a cleansing agent, and there is documented evidence that the cleansing action of salt promotes healing and healthy skin.  We don’t make such claims, but we do love how the soap treats our skin.  I have eczema, so i am always cautious with what i use for soap…. preferring soothing, gentle products.  Salt is known to reduce the itching, and has an antiseptic quality that purifies skin.  I have found with using the pink Himalayan salt soap that my eczema is less bothersome, and the desire to itch is drastically reduced.
