What is Himalayan crystal salt?
About 250 million years ago, what is nowadays the Himalayan mountain range was covered by a primordial ocean. When the Indian sub-continent hit Asia, the ocean floor started to rise and created a huge salt lake. Eventually this salt lake evaporated and formed the salt layers in the Salt Range in India and Pakistan. Himalayan crystal salt contains the same minerals and trace elements of which the human body is composed.
Is Himalayan crystal salt different from other mined salts?
Crystal salt is found in many places around the world. It is the salt from ancient oceans which covered the earth. Therefore, all crystal salts are similar in structure and mineral content, although individual minerals occur in different concentrations depending on the location. Even in a single location the salt can be quite different from layer to layer. Different mineral concentrations change the color of the salt and impurities, such as small veins of clay, are clearly visible. That is why it is so important to manually select the salt crystal blocks before they are crushed for human consumption. In our Pakistani factory, fist-size blocks that can not "hide" impurities are hand picked, then washed and sun-dried. These 100% pure crystal salt blocks are then hammer crushed and sieved to separate the coarse salt from the fine salt.
It is important to note what Aloha Bay means when they are discussing mined salts. For Aloha Bay, mined salts are harvested directly, in smaller or bigger chunks, from the salt layers in the earth. However, a lot of today's table salt is flushed out of similar layers by injecting water into them and then evaporating the brine that is pumped up. This process, and the subsequent "purification" phase, reduces the salt to pure sodium chloride, eliminating all minerals and trace elements.
Is Aloha Bay palm wax 100% natural?
Palm oil itself is a steam distilled pure essential oil. Most palm plantations use conventional agricultural methods. However, there is a growing interest in organic farming, and we purchase certified organic palm wax from Colombia and Brazil.
Some of the palm wax is made by chilling the oil and spinning it around to isolate the oils (waxes) with the highest melt point. In order to obtain the harder, crystalline wax, the oil is hydrogenated (the same process used to make margarine).
Soy wax is most often a blend of waxes (soy, palm, & beeswax) that can contain as little as 25% soy oil. All soy wax is chemically distilled, with synthetic additives and mostly from GMO seed. Even hydrogenated, the soy wax stays buttery and oily, so it can only be used in containers.
Salt crystals absorb moisture from the air. To avoid "sweating" of the salt, and possible salt water damage: Only use your Himalayan Salt Candle Holder in warm and dry areas and always install your Salt Candle Holder on a water tight surface.
A burning candle is an open fire. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep away from children and pets.
Candle is made of 100% pure vegetable Palm Wax. Clean burning and petroleum free. Pure crystal salt from the foothills of the Himalayas.
About Himalayan Salt
Himalayan salt is easily metabolized, contains minerals and trace elements, and has a stronger, richer flavor than sea salt. For incredibly smooth and silky skin, soak with our USDA organic Himalayan bath salts with 100% essential oils.

When the Indian sub-continent hit Asia, the ocean floor started to rise and created a huge salt lake.
