Pure, coarse, natural sea salt. Not washed, not bleached, not ground. The salt comes from a traditional saline of the ecologically controlled nature reserve Ria Formosa at the Algarve in Portugal, with a good water quality. This salt, which is so important for our diet, is scooped by hand in the traditional way, as it was in Roman times. No mechanical means are used, neither during harvesting nor during cultivation. The only aid allowed is a wooden rake and "man power".
All natural minerals remain unadulterated. Ideal for the kitchen and for grilling.
The salt consists of water and about 80 valuable minerals, such as magnesium and iodine, as well as trace elements.

Recipe sea salt bath
500g sea salt
2 heaped EL Siliceous Earth/Silicea
Bathe for approx. 1 hour or more and brush several times with a (pleasant degree of hardness) body brush from bottom to top. Then, if possible, rest a little. Do not apply cream to the body after bathing. This way it forms the natural body fats and the skin becomes very velvety soft.
