Did You Know?

This precious commodity was known as the "King Salt" because it was only reserved for Royalty. Also, the word "salary" is derived from the Latin word for salt!

Why Choose Me?

Lucy Bee Himalayan Salt contains numerous trace minerals. It is 100% natural and unrefined to retain all its natural properties. 

Use in either a salt grinder or crush under a knife as a replacement for table salt.

Where am I from?

Our Himalayan Salt is from the foothills of the Himalayas and is mined from ancient pure crystal salt deposits formed through huge amounts of pressure over millions of years. The way that the crystals were produced has left them untouched by modern pollutants and toxins.



Lucy Bee Himalayan Salts

With their delicate shade of baby pink, Himalayan sea salts are one of the prettiest ingredients to stock our kitchen shelves. Yet, as a must-have for health and food lovers alike, these beautiful salts don’t just have a pretty face – they’re also packed with nutrients and trace minerals, which you won’t find in your average table salt.

In fact, we love these salts just as much as we love our coconut oil, and we’re convinced that you won’t be able to live without them, too.

If you want to know more about this incredible ingredient, then sprinkle some over your scrambled eggs, slurp up that (bullet) coffee and read on…

What is Himalayan Salt?

These rose-coloured salts hail from the foothills of the Himalayas, these salts are millions of years old (a staggering 250 million, in fact) and are renowned for being pure, since they’re untouched by toxins and nasties that can often be found in other salts sitting at the table.

Although some crystals are slightly darker than others and some can actually be snow white in colour, it’s the small amounts of iron oxide, or rust, which lend them their typical soft pink colour. Known in the Himalayas as “white gold,” these amazing little crystals actually contain 84 natural minerals and elements, which are each found in the human body.

Incredibly, Himalayan salt has a special structure, which enables it to store vibrational energy. Since the salt’s minerals are jammed in tight in a colloidal form (which basically means they’re teeny tiny), they’re also easily absorbed by our body’s cells.

Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt

Rich with trace minerals, electrolytes, and elements, it’s no wonder that Himalayan salt has worked its way into many a health food lover’s hearts. 

How is Himalayn Salt Made?

Once upon a time (or, at least, millions of years ago), our Himalayan salt began life as a crystallised sea salt bed, lying within the Himalayan Mountains. Covered in lava and placed under huge tectonic pressure, this was as pure an environment as the salts could find. In fact, there was little exposure to toxins and impurities, and no modern-day pollution to spoil the purity of these small crystals.

Slowly, the plates of the earth moved around these salts, while the sea around them evaporated, leaving all of its wonderful minerals to crystallise beneath the warmth of the sun. Sounds as pure as pure can be, doesn’t it?

Nowadays, these salts will often be hand-harvested, before making their way into homes, supermarkets and health food stores around the world. We have two different Himalayan salts on the market – coarse and fine – so that you can use these amazing salts in a whole host of ways!
