According to Ayurveda, rock salt is the best and purest form of any kind of salt, with no chemical or pollutants infecting it.



Rock salt contains 84 of 92 elements that a human body needs to run in health, including calcium, iron, zinc, potassium, copper and magnesium. In Hindi, rock salt is known as Sendha Namak, and is highly popular in the South Asian regions.

Unlike the common table salt, rock salt has less amounts of sodium chloride in it and is used during the Hindu fasting ritual of Navaratri, to maintain the electrolyte levels of the body.



Apart from aiding digestion, increasing metabolism, stabilising blood pressure, boosting immunity, treating sinuses, rock salt is also widely loved by the beauty industries. It promotes healthy skin, removes dead skin cells, reduces edema and exfoliates skin in the least harmful way possible.



The rock salt therapies and spa treatments have spread to most parts of the world now, and in a country like Brazil, it is a well loved therapy at any local Para or Bahia spa. Some spas offer special rock salt makeovers and treatments for your skin and at a place like Tivoli Ecoresort Praia Do Forte Bahia, you can choose the therapy based on your skin issues too.
