HIMALAYAN SALT AS A BUILDING MATERIAL
Unique Himalayan salt is mined in Pakistan, in the Punjab region. Now it is very popular and is used in different fields. It is used for salting and decorating of dishes. Various cosmetic compositions for baths are made of it. And even cutting boards are made of pieces of the material - they can also act as an unusual cooking surface. We suggest the use of the Himalayan salt as a building or decorative material for a sauna.
The history of the Himalayan salt
When touching this material, you actually come into contact with a real antiquity. This substance started its formation about 200 million years ago, at the bottom of an ancient sea, which was located on the territory of modern Pakistan. Much time has passed, during which the Himalayan salt was stored under frozen lava flows. Nature itself has preserved for us this amazing substance - today this very version of salt is considered to be the purest and healthiest. There are no extra impurities, but there is natural iodine and a lot of useful minerals.
How to build from Himalayan salt
With the help of salt bars, you can completely finish the wall or decorate some part of it. To do this, you need to purchase a special glue that is environmentally friendly and does not alter the material’s properties. Salt finish looks especially stylish if you place a LED backlight behind it: the light bulbs will delicately illuminate translucent pieces of the material - this will create a significantly pleasant atmosphere.
