Traditional Hand-Harvested Salt
In the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, situated in the south of Portugal beside the Atlantic Ocean, salt farmers have kept to traditional methods in their salt gathering practices for hundreds of years.
Their skill at working with the four elements, water, wind, clay and sun results in obtaining good salt, in contrast to the heavily processed and refined salt that is not good for you. The "artisans of salt" as they are known, gather it using wooden rakes every fifteen days during the hottest months of the year.
This compound of 84 minerals and other elements that exist in the water of the sea is necessary to sustain life. Salt rejuvenates the body and has innumerable health benefits. It eliminates toxins and helps prevent sickness. It is of vital importance for digestion, stimulates salivary secretion, makes food easier to assimilate while drawing out the nutritional components of foods.
Salt has always had an important role in medicine. It is useful in healing wounds and skin disease, relieving allergies, and balancing the pH of the body. Mineral-rich salt helps the body assimilate only the needed quantity of sodium, actually helping to regulate the body. It is hard to find another complement of nutrients with the same value and richness of minerals than those readily found in unrefined sea salt. "Salt" is good, while sodium chloride alone is not.
So, it is only "common sense" to use unrefined sea salt. Like the great Teacher said, "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other."
Salt is good - if it's good salt!

It tasted unusual at first, but now I crave it. It's good, although I only care about the great health benefits. The consistency was *so* great, mine wasn't wet like other reviewers', but it just looks and feels like something you want in your body!
Salt as a salt should be
