Also known as Rock Salt, Halite comes from the Greek words halos, meaning “salt, sea” and lithos meaning “rock”.  Himalayan Salt is a marketing term used to describe rock salt that is mined in the Khewra Salt Mines, one of the largest salt mines in the world, located near Islamabad, Pakistan, about 190 miles from the Himalayas.

Many of us know common table salt to be beneficial (in moderation, of course), but Halite is a wonderful healer in other ways as well. A mineral of purification, Halite can cleanse the aura, deflect negativity and balance the emotions (especially helpful for those who suffer from mood swings). Because of its purification properties, Halite is one of the most valuable minerals to use when cleansing crystals - placing your crystals in a bowl of salt will rid them of all the negative energy and impurities they have collected over time and use.

Halite Salt Lamps are often used to cleanse the atmosphere of indoor pollutants and harmful electromagnetic emissions. They are said to be very beneficial to those who suffer from asthma, allergies from pets, hay fever and mold. Their soft glow also helps one feel better emotionally as well, especially for those who may have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Note: Because it will dissolve, never cleanse Halite in water.
