Salt is the first limiting mineral in all species.  It is essential to promote saliva production and ensure optimum function of the digestive system. Animals that are deficient in salt will often be seen chewing wood or attempting to drink urine (both sources of salt). Rock Salt Lump offers a convenient and natural way of  providing salt for your livestock. Rock Salt Lumps, also know as Red Lumpy & Licking Lumps, is a vital supplement for Cattle, Sheep and Horses.Our Himalayan Rock salt lump contains 84 minerals and trace elements which are essential for the live stocks diet, performance and productivity.These large lumps of rock salt, help to maintain body fluid balances. The salt is literally ‘rock hard’ which means animals are unable bite chunks off.  
This unique product is from the earth in its natural state. Formed over 250 million years ago and derived from the foothills of the Himalayan mountain ranges, it is best described as ancient unpolluted sea water that became bound in mountains millions of years ago and crystallized over time. It contains 84 natural minerals and trace elements that are identical to those in the human body. There is no other food product or supplement which contains this quality or quantity of minerals and trace elements. Colloidal minerals and trace elements in this crystalline form are easier for humans and animals to digest ,absorb and metabolize.We describe it as “Living Salt”. Just add moisture to it and the energy within the salt is revived and released. Hard Himalayan rock salt lumps. Easy to metabolize. May shine animal coats all year round. No anti-coagulants, free flow agents or sweeteners like molasses or urea. Depending on pastures available, a 33 kg bag of lumps could last up to 1 month for 50 steers under 300 kg. 
If there is one thing horses love—and absolutely need—it is a rock salt lump. However, many salt lump that horse lovers find on the market are incredibly expensive, heavy, have been baked to lose all minerals and nutrients, or simply can be too easily bitten. 
The wonderful thing about Himalayan rock salt lump that have been mined from some of the best mines in the foothills of the Himalayas is that they are rock solid. It takes incredible miner strength and special tools to wrench these solid rocks of healthy salt from the earth—and no horse can chew through these salt lumps
Additionally, instead of the baked, hard lumps of regular salt, those who care about what their horses are ingesting will rest easy knowing they are being given the equivalent of healthy minerals with each lump. The salt we use is premium Himalayan salt, which contains a wealth of health-boosting minerals that have accumulated over the centuries.

Himalayan salt is a term for halite (commonly known as rock salt, pink salt, Himalayan pink salt  from Pakistan which is the mineral form of sodium chloride (NaCI). This mineral rich salt is mined from the second largest mine in the world, called the Khewra Salt Mines which is located in the Jhelum District, Punjab, Pakistan. It is generally mined by hand to help preserve the chemical structure It is closely located (approximately 300 km) from majestic the Himalayan Mountains which are known to contain the purest form of salt on Earth, Himalayan salt. Historically, this rare salt has been used for centuries as a trading tool. Every spring the Himalayan people would transport the salt through sloping paths, mountain edges and narrow bumpy roads to the Nepalese valleys for trade. It was an extremely important commodity as it could be traded for anything.

Have you heard of salt therapy before? Also known as halotherapy, it’s an ancient practice that involves cleansing and purifying the air, and our bodies, using large pink Himalayan salt lamps placed in a space. It’s been shown to ease anxiety, skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema, congestion, colds, sinus infections, insomnia, bronchitis and ear infections, among many other issues.

How do Himalayan Pink Salt Lamps Work?

Water vapour is always circulating in the air of any room of your house. This water vapour carries with it allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke particles, and even bacteria and viruses.

Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Himalayan pink salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapour and its pollutants.

Once attracted to the pink salt lamp, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not floating in the air where you can breathe them in.

As Himalayan pink salt lamps slowly become saturated with water vapour they attract from the air around them, the heat, from the lamp inside or beneath, dries them, thus continuing the hygroscopic effect for as long as the light is on.

This heat also re-releases water vapour back into the air. Importantly, any airborne contaminants attracted to the pink salt lamp remain trapped there and will not become airborne again.

The Dangers of Positive Ions

Positive ions are created by electronic devices and have been dubbed ‘electronic smog’ or ‘electronic air pollution’. As we all know, we are increasingly surrounded by all sorts of computers, large screen TVs, telephones, microwaves and other appliances we now deem necessary for our survival and entertainment.Studies have shown that your brain gets bombarded by frequencies 20 times higher than its optimal frequency, which results in all sorts of problems, including insomnia, nervousness and allergies.

In short, positive ions are very harmful to us and need to be neutralized.

Role of Negative Ions

Negative ions are actually something that we need to help balance ourselves because we are bombarded with positive ions, especially from the electronics we’re surrounded by all day long.  Having more negative ions in your environment actually has beneficial biochemical effects for us.

We want to have those negative ions within our space because it helps increase certain hormones in our physical body that actually benefit us in lots of ways like Serotonin.  which alleviates depression if you’re Serotonin levels are balanced. It’s also been said that a healthy balance of negative ions can:

Freshen and deodorize indoor air

Remove airborne germs and contaminants

Promote better sleep

Reduce microscopic allergens like dust, pet dander, mold and mildew

Increase blood flow and oxygen supply throughout the body

How to care your pink salt lamp?

To clean, switch pink salt lamp off and wipe with a slightly damp sponge

Leave pink salt lamp on wherever possible as the heat from the light bulb will prevent the salt lamp absorbing moisture

If pink salt lamp gets wet leave in strong sunlight for 4 to 5 hours and brush off any excess crystals

When not in use for long periods, disconnect your power cable and remove from the salt lamp, and store the salt lamp and base in a plastic bag to help prevent the salt lamp absorbing moisture

In humid conditions we recommend placing your pink salt lamp onto a small tray or dish in the rare case they may pool water

Research results:

It's a well know fact that, through scientific and empirical research, pink salt lamps exhibit biophysical characteristics, which demonstrate a positive effect on our well-being. From a scientific view there are three natural action principles at play: ionization, the electromagnetic oscillation and the transparent-crystalline structure developing the light waves.

Two thousand years ago, the Himalayan mountains revealed one of their oldest deepest secrets: a 260 million year old salt crystal deposit. The salt is traditionally mined reaching the depths of 700-1100 meters. This allows for all the natural benefits of the salt with a guarantee that there is no toxic contamination. The salt negatively ionize the air counteracting detrimental positive ionization.For decades the beneficial effects of the negative ions the salt emits has been known to alleviate symptoms related to medical ailments and psychiatric disorders. The salt also minimizes the effects of radiation from electronic devises placed by a television, computer, microwave, or any electronic equipment.

Crystal salt  is one of the few minerals whose atomic structure is bound electrically, not molecularly.
This characteristic of the mineral structure enables the crystal to change back and forth from crystalline to liquid state.The gentle heat of the lamp in the salt crystal creates a higher surface temperature than the surrounding air. This attracts the water molecules in the cooler surrounding air. The natural humidity in the air condenses on the crystal's surface. This enables the electrically bound sodium chloride mineral to split into independent (positive) sodium and (negative) chloride ions.

The air we breath consists of ions that carry either a positive or a negative electrical charge. Computers, TV sets, air conditioners and many other by- products of modern living produce positively ionized air, which is detrimental to our health. Negatively ionized air is generated by environments such as mountains, the seaside and waterfalls, and by means such as thunderstorms, gentle heat and Crystal salt Lamps

Crystal Salt lamps produce both gentle heat and negatively-charged ions. They make it easy for you to bring the benefits of famous health spas into your own home! In addition to the proven benefits of negative ionization, many people also experience a reduction in stress due to the gentle, soothing colours 

The Healing Effect of Colors on our Body and Mind 
Orange – Facilitates a feeling of security and is helpful to our nervous system and our mind and activates the kidneys and bladder. 
Yellow – Encourages intellectual comprehension and activates the pancreas, liver and gall bladder.
Red – Strengthens the vital life force and activates the heart and circulation. 
Pink – Supports the sense of partnership and love and opens your emotional body. 
White – Has a cleansing and detoxifying effect and represents the healing aspect.
Brown – Helps to find ones own balance and supports earthiness

Crystal Salt lamps work well in most conditions, however as salt is hygroscopic. Crystal salt lamps should not be used outdoors or in areas of high humidity such as bathrooms. Nor should they be placed next to water features, fish tanks, evaporation coolers etc.
If your crystal salt lamp becomes dusty, gently wipe down with a damp cloth. Don’t wash with water as this will dissolve the salt. If your lamp gets wet, switch off the power source, remove the cord and bulb and dry with a cloth. You may lightly use a scorer on excessive dirt. Then allow the crystal salt lamp to dry naturally (indoors) or by replacing the globe and cord and activating the lamp.
As with any electrical device, if you believe that water may have entered the socket,  switch, or power cable, proceed with caution. Switch off the crystal salt lamp at the wall and replace the cord and globe immediately.When not in use, consider storing your crystal salt lamp in a plastic bag to help prevent weeping or sweating. Crystal Salt lamp globes keep best if the lamp is in a stationary position and not subject to vibration.  If the globe fails often, please check that it is screwed in firmly and that it is not touching the surface of the lamp.Take care when placing crystal salt lamps on delicate surfaces, particularly if you have a lamp with a stone base. 

Crystal Salt Lamps are hand carved salt crystals from the Salt Mine in Khewra Pakistan. The warmth and natural beauty of the glow provided by these crystal salt lamps makes them a wonderful accent for any room. They provide a natural ambiance that enhances home and office, and are a perfect answer for providing Feng Shui cures for buildings that have "stuck" energy. 
Crystal Salt lamps make the perfect gift. Everyone is attracted to them and people naturally feel uplifted and happier in the presence of Crystal Salt Lamps
Crystal Salt lamps already contains minute amounts of water dispersed throughout the extremely fine crystal structure, but it is looking for more. When using a Crystal Salt Lamp this “affinity” for water can be amplified many times in potency. The heat generated by the low wattage light bulb burning inside the Crystal Salt Lamp has the effect of “turning on” the crystal, so that it attracts the water vapor in the room at an even greater amount than when unlit. With the Crystal Salt Lamp now drawing larger quantities of vapor towards itself, the vapor, and anything hitching a ride on it (such as bacteria or pollen) will momentarily condensate on the surface of the Crystal Salt Lamp. This results in a microscopic pool of water, which then immediately dissolves the salt it contacts, forming a “salt solution.”

Benefits of Crystal Salt Lamp:

Prevention of allergy symptoms and improved air quality
Increased serotonin levels to aid in healthy sleep patterns
Improved energy and mood
Decreased blood pressure
Supported immune system, respiratory function, and vascular health
reductions in rheumatism, migraine, physical and psychological disorders, mild depression

Have you ever noticed how mentally and physically refreshed you feel after sitting by a gashing waterfall? Or how you experience a boost in energy after spending some time at an untamed seafront? What makes you feel so good in spots of this kind is the abundance of negative ions, which get produced in some natural places.
Now, there is a way to mimic these perfect circumstances in your own home and indoor places where you spend a lot of time. Himalayan Salt lamps have the ability to chemically and physically transform a room, and have unique healing effects.

What is a Salt Lamp?
Salt lamps are hand chiseled solid blocks of ancient crystal salts like this. They have a beautiful pink color, often pinkish orange, due to the high concentration of minerals.
Inside the hollowed out middle of the salt lamp is a light bulb to generate both light and heat. This is important for their reported benefits and salt lamps won’t work properly without a heat-producing light.
Salt lamps also come in decorative baskets of crystal salt, with a light and heat source underneath that creates a soft pink glow.

Salt is hygroscopic, so the Salt lamps attract water molecules from the air; this means the salt lamps trap dirt, pollen, and smoke particles which are carried in water vapor.
Once these airborne contaminants have been locked in the salt, clean water is re-released and thus it has a purifying effect on the air. Theoretically that is.
Scientists know that salt does absorb water from the air but that it quickly reaches an equilibrium state. This is the same for silica packets. Both can be revitalized by drying, which a burning and warming lamp does. So there is merit to this claim.
What’s more is that the heat from the bulb inside that warms up the lamp releases negative ions. And there are the health-boosting effects of salt itself too.

8 Health Benefits Of Himalayan Salt Lamps
It is thought that the negative ions produced by Himalayan Salt Lamps may protect against airborne germs, preventing the development of coughs, sneezes and throat irritation. Here are some of the problems that salt lamps are thought to prevent:
Respiratory complaints
Allergic reactions
Skin problems
Mental disorders
Migraine and headaches
Disorders of the vascular system
Himalayan Salt Lamps also have a positive effect when meditating and aid relaxation while resulting in an improvement in air quality.

Salt lamps are quite pretty. They give off a warm orange glow, whose ambiance is soothing, and restful which I suppose could reduce stress and improve general emotional well being. If you wish to buy a salt lamp for their beauty and relaxation qualities, it’s probably money well spent. But please have no illusions as to their health effects. It could never possibly replace hyper tonic, or even complement your respiratory treatments.  It’s also probably not a good idea to lick them.

Himalayan salt, named for the Himalayan mountain range, is special because of the diversity of minerals in its composition as well as its purity. In addition to being mineral-rich, this particular salt mine was covered in lava for millions of years, which actually protected from pollution and environmental changes over time. Himalayan salt comes from the time when the earth was pristine. Himalayan salt is pure, chemically free and contains no impurities from environmental pollution. The composition of the salt has one of the world’s highest elemental concentration of 84 minerals and trace elements, the same nutritional elements our bodies need to survive.
Rock salt lamps is mined in Pakistan. When you bring a rock salt lamp into your home, you are creating a natural environment just as when you introduce house plants and water features. These things, by imparting clean, fresh air into our homes, leave us feeling refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated! By purifying the air in your home with one of our many designs of rock salt lamps, you will notice improvements in your families health and well being. We take pride that each of our fair trade rock salt lamps is original with its own distinctive shape and color. Clients who regularly use our rock salt lamps have said they have realized significant improvement in the air in their home and have also noticed an enhanced sense of well-being.They love the gentle, glowing light and beauty of our Himalayan rock salt lamps and rock salt candle holders. The beautiful glow from our Rock Salt Lamps will bring a tranquil ambiance to your home. Rock Salt lamps are best placed near televisions and computers, around smokers, in offices with air-conditioning, in fact anywhere you want to restore or preserve the natural air quality.
How do Rock Salt Lamps Actually Work?
Rock Salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract moisture... humidity... airborne water molecules; it is a natural property of sodium chloride. Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. In more humid regions, an unlit rock salt lamp will eventually “cry,” even creating puddles of water at its base. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health.
There are natural phenomena that make us feel refreshed or revitalized. You know, simple things like sitting next to a huge waterfall, or being in front of rushing waves at the waterfront. If we were able to soar through the air like birds that would probably do it too. What about these natural locations and events gives us the good goosebumps? Negative ions.
Negative ions are produced in nature and there’s even a way to mimic them in the walls of your home. Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or at the beach.
Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.
The unique combination of salt and a light source in rock salt lamps are what cause the negative ions. The negative ions are generated during the evaporation process. Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.

.The Himalayas – the tallest mountains in the world – span 2400 kilometers across Asia at the joining of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates.  Where these proud peaks now stand, 250 million years ago was a primordial sea.  Within that ancient body of water existed a perfect, pristine ecosystem.  As the plates of the earth moved and over the ages pushed the Himalayas toward the heavens, the sea evaporated and all of its life-sustaining minerals crystallized under the heat of the sun to form what we now know as Himalayan rock salt. As you can probably gather from the name, Himalayan rock salt comes from the Himalayas, the famous mountain range that stretches across Nepal, Tibet, and Afghanistan.You probably know that Mount Everest is part of the Himalayas, but the fame of Himalayan rock salt isn’t about the majesty of the mountain peaks.The Himalayan rock salt is formed from ancient oceans more than 200 million years ago.Covered by snow and ice, and far from huge population centers, the salt found deep under the Himalayan foot hills have been protected from the human pollution throughout the years.It is now considered the purest rock salt you can find in this world, and it is hand-mined so that its purity is maintained.With its delicate pink, rose-like color, rock salt is visually distinctive and prized for its purported nutritional profile as it contains a high number of essential minerals

Himalayan salt is also often called Himalayan rock salt. It has been compressed and formed under immense pressure for millions of years, giving them the perfect highly crystalline structure which is high in stored energy.

Ease Stress, nervousness and anxiety
Reduce joint and arthritis inflammation and pain
Experience a better nights sleep and perhaps help with insomnia
Assist in helping your muscles to recover from physical exhaustion and fatigue 
Strengthen  your immune system
Promote relaxation, calmness and just to clear your head

Rock Salt consists of exactly the same natural elements that make up our bodies. Interestingly enough, our blood consists of the same salty ingredients as the primordial sea. Sole Water is the perfect combination of pure water and these rock salt crystals. It is this same combination that comprises the amniotic fluid we find in the womb, where new life begins.

Rock salt also used in salt therapies
Salt therapy is a drug free treatment that reproduces the natural micro climate of a salt cave by dispersing a rock salt aerosol in high concentrations in a halo chamber whose surfaces are covered with layers of rock salt. The rock salt aerosol in the room plays an important role in the relief of health problems and is a highly effective therapy for treating people with respiratory problems and skin conditions without any known side effects. 
Within the salt room a  microniser is used to pump a dry aerosol Himalayan rock salt aerosol into the air. As the Himalayan rock salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus, killing bacteria and reducing inflammation. Rock salt has long been known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties as well as helping to loosen mucus build up and phlegm, help with asthma treatment and bronchial conditions.  Studies have shown that people with chronic upper respiratory conditions, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis and skin disorders can derive significant benefits from salt therapy. 

How Your Skin Benefits From Rock Salt Skin Scrubs
A buildup of dead skin cells causes a rough, dull, aged appearance. Exfoliating the top layers of dehydrated cells promotes a youthful glowing skin, as well as many other benefits. Rubbing your skin with a quality rock salt scrub allows the texture of the rock salt scrub to exfoliate and refine the skin, leaving it clean and refreshed, and rubbing away any dead skin cells that cause your skin to look dull. The rock salt grains cleanse pores unlike any soap or cleanser can, allowing your skin to breathe easier. The main benefits of using a good rock salt skin scrub include:

Exfoliating cleans the skin better than soaps or cleansers.
Removing dull, dead skin cells to reveal younger looking skin.
Thoroughly cleaning skin pores, allowing your skin to breathe easier.
Stimulating blood circulation and removing daily toxins from your skin.
Helping to regenerate new skin, which keeps your skin looking younger.
