Himalayan salt is rock salt found in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountain region and is most commonly mined in the most northern reaches of Pakistan. The area is pristine, producing some of the world’s most sought-after salt for both cooking and for therapeutic benefits. All natural deodorant bars carved from slabs of Himalayan pink salt are one of the best and most organic ways you can deodorise your armpits and other parts of the body.
Why Use Himalayan Salt Deodorant Bars?
Many commercially made deodorant sticks and sprays contain chemicals and other substances that, while they may be effective in masking and eliminating body odour, can actually be harmful to the skin and toxins (such as aluminium) can be absorbed into the body through the skin and also via inhalation.
Natural Himalayan pink salt deodoriser bars are predominantly made from sodium (salt) along with containing other trace elements and essential minerals. Salt is a natural disinfectant that kills the germs and bacteria on the skin that cause offensive odours, such as smelly armpits and feet. Rather than trying to protect yourself (and others) against body odour with toxic sprays and roll-ons, simply apply 100% natural Himalayan deodorant bars to kill bacteria and eliminate offensive body odour.
While many off the shelf deodorants also block up the pores of the skin, this doesn’t happen when you use a salt-based deodorant bar. Instead, your skin is allowed to breathe, keeping both your skin and your entire body healthy. Application will not leave unsightly stains on your clothing either, unlike some manufactured deodorants do.
It’s also important to note that due to the trace elements and minerals found naturally in pink Himalayan salt, application of the deodorant bar can have other health benefits as well.
Minerals such as potassium and magnesium can be absorbed into the body through the skin. These minerals can improve blood circulation, lower blood pressure, help to keep the skin and the body hydrated and more. These are just two essential minerals found in Himalayan pink salt out of more than 80.
Whichever way you look at it, using all natural deodorant bars made from Himalayan salt are the better way to go.
How To Use Himalayan Salt Deodorant Bars
Before application of the Himalayan salt deodorant stick, it first needs to be moistened in water to soften the outer layer of salt crystals. Alternatively, you can apply to the skin while your body is still moist following a shower.
It’s vital that you keep the deodorant bar dry between applications to prolong the life of the bar. Don’t leave the bar in the shower or in any other location where high humidity exists.
Refrain from using the deodorant bars on damaged or irritated skin, as it can exacerbate the problem.
The Himalayan salt deodorant bar can also be used as a massage stone when applied warm to the body with essential oils.
