There are various forms of salt, yet the most commonly used and known being regular white table salt. However, this salt isn’t recommended by those of us here at Spirit Earth Awakening simply because it lacks any real health or nutritional value. Instead, we like to opt for any variety of sea salt, or best yet – Pink Himalayan salt.
