The Himalayan Pink Salt is believed to be the purest form of salt as it is excavated and mined from ancient salt mines dating back to over 250 million years when these mountains used to be living oceans that were trapped beneath the earth’s crust due to massive geological changes on our planet. This ancient sea salt solidified over the passage of time and is now known as Rock Salt (non iodized Himalayan pink salt). The mountains’ stretch starting from the Himalayas in Nepal and passing through India and ending in the North of Pakistan. Himalayan salt is mostly mined at the Khewra Salt Mine in Khewra, hence giving it the now world-famous name of Himalayan Pink Salt.
