Common Uses for Himalayan Salt
At Q&A Himalayan Salt, we are passionate about the positive, healthful impact of our Himalayan salt products. Whether it’s in granular, slab, or rock form (like our Himalayan salt rock lamps), Himalayan salt products can stimulate your mind, spice up your cooking, and improve your physical health. Here are some of the most common uses for Himalayan salt products, and how they can benefit you in all aspects of life.
Bath Salts & Soaps
Himalayan sea salt is a great natural exfoliant, and can be an excellent ingredient in homemade bath bombs and soaps. For bath bombs and bath salt mixes, combining Himalayan sea salt with baking soda, essential oils, and aromatic herbs can make for a relaxing, yet invigorating bathtime experience. For homemade soap, combining coconut oil, shea butter, eucalyptus, peppermint, and other herbs can remove dead skin cells and make you feel and smell amazing. The Himalayan sea salt takes care of the scrubbing, so add different herbs and oils for a fresh change of pace.
Used as cooking salt, table salt, and finishing salt, Himalayan sea salt has a diverse culinary repertoire, as well as an interesting color and deep, rich flavor. Cooking steak and lean meat on a salt block atop a charcoal grill can bring out the richness and complex flavor of the meat, and help the meat cook evenly. The moral of the sea salt slab cooking story: don’t salt your meat—meat your salt.
Himalayan sea salt is great for desserts and cocktails as well. There’s nothing more satisfying to a sweet tooth than a hint of salt juxtaposed by some sugary sweetness; this is what makes salted caramel and chocolate-covered peanuts truly mouthwatering. Putting a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt on a scoop of ice cream or using it as a table salt replacement in your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe can bring out the sweetness and delicious, chocolatey flavors.
For boozier fare, Himalayan sea salt is a great complement to fancy, fruity drinks, and a tasty (and necessary) liner for margarita and tequila shot glasses. Or, even better, try out one of our Himalayan sea salt glasses!
