I want to make my own salt scrub, which grain size should I use? The fine grain (or extra fine if available) is best for scrubs. This way you’ll create an exfoliating scrub but not one that is too abrasive for the skin.
Does the coarse grain contain a higher mineral content? This is a common misconception as no matter what grain size you choose it will still have the same variety of minerals. It originates from the same source and has the same quality as the coarse grain. The only difference would be that the finer grain sizes have been grinded smaller.

I want to use the Himalayan Salt as a gourmet food salt. Which size is best for this? Our Himalayan Salts can be used for consumption. The extra fine is a popular choice because it can go right in a salt shaker. Any grain size that is larger would need to be put in a salt mill or grinder if it is to be sprinkled directly onto food.
