Sherpa Pink Himalayan Salts

Himalayan Bath & Spa Salts

Salt harvested from the Himalayan Mountains is unlike any other salt in the world, unique in both its majestic beauty and in the benefits it provides. If you add pure and natural Himalayan salts to your bath you will notice the difference immediately; when mixed with water, these salts create an environment that mimics the most ancient seas on Earth, bringing the magic of the Himalayas right into your own home. 


Why Choose Pink Himalayan Salt?

  1. When mixed with water, these salts create an environment that mimics the most ancient seas on earth, bringing the magic of the Himalayas right into your own home.
  2. Himalayan bath salts can improve the texture, tone, and appearance of your skin, combat water retention, promote sinus health, prevent muscle cramping and soreness, regulate sleep, decrease stress and even support your libido.
  3. Pink Himalayan Salt re-mineralizes the body with minerals and trace elements essential to our health and wellbeing. When you soak in a salt bath, the minerals and nutrients in the salt are delivered to your cells in the form of “ions”, making it easier for your body to absorb them and utilize them.
  4. Bathing in warm water mixed with Pink Salt greatly lowers your blood pressure and relaxes your mind and your body, so you can have a long, restful night of uninterrupted sleep. 

Q: Why are your salts priced lower than anyone else out there?
A: We are one of the largest importers of Himalayan Salt in the USA, so we are able to price our salt more competitively by passing our savings on to the customer! Despite Himalayan Salt being a unique and wonderfully pristine salt, we don't believe that is should be sold for outrageously high prices.

Q: I’d like to buy this salt for bathing and for cooking. What grain sizes are best for each?
A: If you’d like to use Himalayan Salt directly on food, we recommend a finer grain like Powder, Extra-Fine, or Fine. If you prefer to grind your own salt, we recommend Coarse grain. For bath & spa use, it’s up to you! Larger grain sizes take longer to dissolve - but looks beautiful in the water, whereas smaller grain sizes dissolve faster and are ideal for making exfoliating salt scrubs.

Q: How do I make sure I am buying the highest-quality gourmet Pink Himalayan Salt available?
A: At San Francisco Salt Company, we believe in only importing and selling the highest quality Himalayan Salt. All our Sherpa Pink® Himalayan Salt comes with a certificate of authenticity stating that it is 100% pure and natural and does not contain any anti-caking agents or free flowing agents. We bring you these salts in their natural, raw state, delivering all the minerals, nutrients, and magic of the Himalayas to our customers.

Q: Why doesn't this salt dissolve fully into water?
A: This product is an all-natural rock salt and may include insoluble mineral deposits with a slow dissolve rate (this will be most apparent in the coarse grain). We have strict quality assurance policies in place to keep inconsistencies to a minimum. A slow dissolve rate is a natural characteristic of Himalayan Salt and a good indication that you are using authentic pink Himalayan Salt!

Sherpa Pink® Himalayan Bath Salt Technical Data Sheet  


The Himalayas are a great natural wonder, with breathtaking beauty; visitors often describe the mountains and surrounding area as mysterious and even magical. It is the largest mountain range in the world, reaching 26,000 feet at its peak. The range is 1700 miles across and is located between Assam and Kashmir, stretching across India, Pakistan, China, Nepal, and Bhutan.

Himalayan salt comes from the many intertwining bodies of water located deep within the Himalayan Mountains. It has been known for its natural purity since ancient times, and has always been a staple in the area’s economy. Historically, and up into the present day, the salt has served as a valuable source of income and treasured commodity in remote villages and towns. For centuries, people in the region have travelled once a year to Nepal to trade their precious salt in exchange for food and other items. Himalayan Salt has been known as “King Salt” - back in the day, it was served to royalty; ordinary folks were served less expensive sea salt or table salt. In addition to being used as an alternative to table salt in cooking, Himalayan salt was used in the preservation of meat, often keeping meat fresh year-round.

Physical Attributes

Himalayan salt is quite beautiful - It is often reddish or pinkish in color, and can also be transparent or off-white. It is known as “crystal salt”, due to its unique formation; when under a microscope, each crystal is beautiful and unique, forming gorgeous geometric patterns. Crystal salt forms over millions of years, under the influence of extreme tectonic pressure, far from pollution and toxins.

The Many Benefits of Bathing in Pink Himalayan Salt

Salt harvested from the Himalayan Mountains is unlike any other sea salt, unique in both its majestic beauty and in the benefits it provides. When mixed with water, these salts create an environment that mimics the most ancient seas on earth. When you soak in a salt or “brine” bath, as it is also called, the minerals and nutrients in the salt are delivered to your cells in the form of “ions”, making it easier for your body to absorb them and utilize them.

Himalayan Salt contains many elements that naturally occur in our bodies, and are easily absorbed and utilized by our cells when ingested or added to warm water in a bath. Himalayan salt is naturally rich in nutrients and minerals, and each perfectly formed crystal contains crucial minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron.

Calcium is crucial for the formation of strong bones and teeth, and the benefits are particularly marked in women and children. As we get older, our bones become brittle, as do our nails and our hair. Calcium helps us build bone strength and mass, warding off common conditions such as osteoporosis, the weakening of the skeletal system. Bones and ligaments become stronger and less prone to fractures and sprains that often occur when our calcium levels decrease.

Magnesium is essential to the healthy functioning of all living cells and is the 11th most abundant element in the human body. Magnesium has been used in anesthetics, sports medicine for relief of tired muscles, and antacids for the soothing of the stomach.

Potassium is crucial to heart function and has been used to treat hypertension and heart conditions. During physical activity, our body utilizes and then loses large amounts of potassium, which must be replenished to avoid soreness and tightness in the muscles. Potassium is found in foods such as bananas, broccoli, and many other fruits and vegetables. It is a powerful diuretic as well.

Copper and iron both aide in the formation of red blood cells, and support the nervous system, improve immune system response, and promote healthy bone structure and blood vessel function.

Softer, Smoother Skin

You probably have experienced at least one of the following: dry, flaky skin, oily skin, “combination” skin, acne, or dandruff. As you get older, you might also notice a loss of elasticity or “tightness” of your skin, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. 

Bathing in natural Himalayan sea salt is a low-cost skin care alternative that is not only pleasant, but effective. The salt is readily absorbed into your skin, cleaning and purifying your pores from the inside out; sea salt also plumps the skin, filling out fine lines and wrinkles. The powerful detoxification properties of natural sea salt break down harmful deposits and toxins that lead to a dull, lifeless complexion and uneven coloration. After bathing in Himalayan salt water, you emerge with skin that is soft, smooth, and supple to the touch.

Curing Symptoms of PMS?

Bathing can alleviate the symptoms of PMS without breaking the bank, and is a wonderful way to uplift your mood. Bathing in natural sea salts rich in potassium and iron effectively combats water retention and bloating by allowing your cells to metabolize and utilize water more effectively. Soaking in warm water gently soothes cramping and aches and pains. Bathing also greatly uplifts the mood - you’ll feel your blood pressure lower along with your stress level and you will feel relaxed, content, and refreshed.

Treat Insomnia and Get a Good Night's Rest

Bathing is one of the most soothing, relaxing things you can do with your time. If you go to bed feeling restless and spend the night tossing and turning, taking a bath before bedtime is the best thing you can do. Bathing in warm water mixed with sea salt greatly lowers your blood pressure and relaxes your mind and your body, so you can have a long, restful night of uninterrupted sleep.  

Feel Happier... And Sexier?

That’s right - bathing can uplift your mood and increase your libido. Bathing greatly decreases stress, both mental and physical. It decreases your blood pressure, relaxing you from the inside out. As you lie back and soak, you’ll feel the worries and stress of the day melt away as the warmth of the water and minerals in your bath salts carry away tension and stress.

You will notice your blood pressure drop and you will be completely relaxed, but how does this relate to libido? Well, high stress is the number one culprit when it comes to not feeling sexy at the end of a hard workday. In addition, bathing increases your circulation, allowing blood to move freely throughout your body, awakening all your senses at once. Bathing can be an incredibly sensual experience, either alone or with a partner. Light those candles and prepare to leave your worries far behind!
