Building with salt? Himalayan salt is rock salt or halite from a mine in the Punjab region of Pakistan, a primordial sea. The salt sometimes occurs in a reddish or pink colour, with some crystals having an off-white to transparent colour. The blocks and tiles are used for saunas but it can be a beautiful translucent wall in every interior.
It is said that used in a sauna it releases negative ions that create a fresh, clean, bacteria-free environment. Because of the bacteria-free environment salt creates, sauna salt is great for the respiratory system. As every other sauna, salt sauna reduces the effects of stressful life and has good effects on the purification of the skin. The heat from salt sauna releases the negative ions, which are captured in salt. It gives many benefits include regulating blood pressure, balancing blood sugar and pH acid levels.
This healing material is available in blocks and tiles, and glued with a special glue.
