Himalayan salt is the purest salt available because it has absolutely no chemicals, toxins, or pollutants. It contains the same 84 natural minerals in the human body, all which can easily be absorbed by cells because of their tiny size. The ancient Greeks used Himalayan salt to treat respiratory conditions. Believe it or not, they would sit in cave rooms with salt so that they can clear airways and improve breathing. Studies in the 19th century found that individuals who work in salt mines are known for having exceptional respiratory health and rarely develop lung diseases. Himalayan inhalers are intended for you to breathe through so that the air’s moisture picks up tiny Himalayan salt particles and takes them deep into your lungs.
