Himalayan Dalai Salt (a crystal salt) is one of the most beneficial, cleanest salts available on this planet. It was formed about 250 million years ago when the energy of the sun caused the prehistoric, primal sea to recede. This crystal salt is absolutely pristine and natural, identical in composition to the ancient primal ocean. It also contains many natural minerals and nutrients found in our bodies. For thousands of years salt has been known as a panacea. Alchemists called it "the fifth element" –besides water, earth, air and fire- because its qualities were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element.

Crystal salt in its most perfect form is geologically referred to as halite. Historically, it was called "king's salt" because its use was a privilege reserved for nobility. The populous received mere rock salt. Crystal salt mining was abandoned a long time ago, when it ceased being profitable. Because pure crystal salt only occurs sporadically and in veins, it cannot be mined and processed mechanically. It is often necessary to mine one hundred times the amount of rock salt in order to secure the precious crystal salt.

Himalayan people use salt to keep fish and meat all year long. Historically, it was also used as a currency in trading. For centuries, once a year in springtime, the Himalayan people have been transporting the salt to the Nepalese valleys for trade. Heavily burdened yaks carry the salt, traveling along narrow sloping paths, often these paths have been carved in cliffs. Once they have arrived at their destination, the salt is traded for cereals, which is the staple of the diet for these Himalayan salt traders.
