Himalayan Sea Salt
Ours is pink and comes from those beautiful Himalayas. Although sea salts are known for having so many trace minerals, we understand that you would need to have so much of that to make an impact.

In addition, it is a great source of electrolytes, and it's less processed than classic table salt, a little everyday adds up!

Citrus is worth the squeeze

We will drink to that!
