10 Benefits to using Rock Salt

A brief overview of rock salt

Rock Salt, formally known as Halite, is the natural form of Sodium Chloride. It consists of white or colourless isometric crystals which formed more than 200 million years ago through the drying out of enclosed lakes, playas and seas. These vast beds now lie around 400-750m below ground and are mined around the world, most famously in the Himalayas.

Halite is the original sea salt, but it was formed long before plastics had been invented - this means that, unlike most sea salts available commercially, there is no microplastics in Rock Salt.
