Himalayas literally mean “Abode of Snow”. The Himalayan range of mountains is home to nine of the ten highest peaks on Earth, including the highest, Mount Everest. The Himalayas have shaped the cultures of South Asian countries and are sacred to Hindus and Buddhists. It is the home to Lord Shiva. Every bit of the Himalayas is sacred to Indians.
Salt is an important component of the human diet. The human body contains many salts, of which sodium chloride is the major one, making up around 0.4 per cent of the body’s weight at a concentration equivalent to that in seawater. Without salt, our bodies become chemically imbalanced; muscles and nervous system cease to function and leads to eventual death. Pure Natural Salt is critical for maintaining and triggering critical life processes.
Pure Natural Salt has the following beneficial properties:
- promotes insulin sensitivity
- Is a natural antihistamine
- Aids towards good digestion
- Improves metabolism
- Supports thyroid function
- Reduces stress hormones
- Maintains overall hormone balance
- Is Antibacterial
- Is Anti-inflammatory
- Has Mucolytic effects
- Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
- Reduces immune system oversensitivity
Crystals derive their power from the way they are created. Millions of years ago, superheated gases and mineral solutions were forced upwards from the earth’s core towards the surface. Crystals are born through extreme heat and pressure as the earth solidifies. As the crystal solidifies, it embodies a unique energy from the earth as if that energy has been frozen in time. Each crystal emits an energy frequency and has its own unique vibration which can be used to correct vibration imbalances in each or all of our energy centers and bodies. This makes them extremely powerful tools for meditation and healing.
Cave – a powerful place for Sadhana
The ancient rishis and seers of India lived in the caves of Himalayas and did rigorous Tapascharya. The temperature is quite even in caves. Caves are very cooling. The heat of scorching summer cannot penetrate inside the cave. It is quite warm in winter. All external sounds are shut out in a cave. You can have very beautiful, uninterrupted meditation.
Salt cave is a man-made space that mimics the natural salt mines used for treatment, prevention, recovery and rehabilitation. The atmosphere inside the salt cave contributes to rest & rehabilitation.
The unusual topography of the walls, covered with tons of Salt Rocks, softly illuminated by hidden lights, healing music – all that is required for a Halo therapy session.
In 1843, Polish physician Felix Boczkowski discovered that men working in the salt mines at Wieliczka suffered fewer respiratory problems than the general population. He published his findings in “About the Breathing of Salt Dust,” the first of many studies on the effects of breathing salt air.
Modern use of salt therapy (halotherapy) started in Germany when Dr. Karl Herman Spannage noticed improvement in health of his patients after they hid in local salt caves to escape heavy bombing during World War II.
Since then, many European Spas and medical clinics have incorporated halotherapy in their practices. Himalayan salt caves are found in Poland, Pakistan, Eustonia and Germany.
Salt caves are considered to be second generation spas. Of late, they are very popular and significantly contribute to rejuvenation, prevention of several illnesses and strengthening the immune system. Salt cave treatment is comprised of a cave-like setting in which one is completely surrounded by a sterile salt-surfaced room. The treatment room is completely saturated – from the floor to the ceiling and wall – with health-inducing natural minerals.
Salt crystal stones produce air that is saturated with negative ions, which are crucial for a healthy body and bring joy and love into our hearts and lives.
The therapy is considered as one of the most effective solutions to various respiratory illnesses such as Bronchitis, Sinusitis, Asthma, Hay-fever, Pneumonia, wheezing, cold or cough.

Himalayan salt has been in the earth for over 250 million years and is toxin free. Containing all natural minerals that are vital to the human body, it’s safe and more beneficial than any other salt. To preserve purity, Himalayan crystal salt is hand-collected in the mountains, broken down by hand using stones, and packaged in organic cotton bags.
People could benefit from supplementing their daily intake and dietary needs with a bit of pink salt. Himalayan salt contains 84 minerals, electrolytes and elements. For this reason, adding more Himalayan salt to your diet can help rectify virtually any mineral deficiency you might have.
