Salt is good – if it’s good salt!
Traditional Hand Harvested Salt
In the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, situated in the south of Portugal beside the Atlantic Ocean, salt farmers have kept to traditional methods in their salt gathering practices for hundreds of years.
Their skill at working with the four elements: water, wind, clay and sun results in obtaining good salt, in contrast to the heavily processed and refined salt that is not good for you. The "artisans of salt" as they are known, gather it using wooden rakes every fifteen days during the hottest months of the year.
It is only "common sense" to use unrefined sea salt. Like the great Teacher said, "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."
Use as seasoning on your favorite meals.

I am very pleased with this sea salt as I have high blood pressure. I use it in place of regular salt in everything, the taste is simular. The only drawback is it is moist so it does not come out of a salt shaker but the health benefit of this salt far outways that. I would highly recomend this salt to anyone for everyday use.
Perfect sea salt, however it is too coarse to use in an ordinary salt shaker. Works fine to pinch it and put on food. Have also used in warm water for a sore throat. Works well for that.
The salt is just fine, but I was a little surprised to find that it is quite moist... like sand at the beach. Because I like to use a salt shaker I put it in my dehydrator and that seemed to take care of the situation. I simply feel that, because this level of moisture is not what most Americans expect when they purchase salt, it would be helpful if this were listed in the product description.
