The Benefits of Himalayan Salt

Either I have been living in vacuum, or the Himalayan Salt craze only hit critical mass this year.  I now see it everywhere.

  • A recent new hire brought in a lamp made of this pink salt to place beside her computer to get rid of the negative ions, or something like that.
  • My daughter bought me a container of the salt grain for sprinkling on my food and I really like it.
  • My son mentioned that he had a lamp beside his bed for his sinuses.
  • And when i was researching a new outdoor cooking apparatus, I noticed that it came with
    a Himalayan salt block for cooking on.

I am amazed that every time I turn around, I see this pink salt that is millions of years old being mined from the Himalayan Mountains that has been protected from all the years of our planet’s pollution.
Are we going to run out of this precious product that we eat, cook on, inhale, bathe in and use in our Neti Pots?

Why have I not heard of this product before this year and now I see it everywhere?

It’s not something we can manufacture, so as supplies get low is the price going up?
Should I hoard it for future value? It’s really pretty inexpensive, considering how far it has to be shipped.
How did we make it this far without this precious commodity?
