Himalayan sea salt


I have a question about Himalayan sea salt that has probably been asked before, but I can’t seem to pinpoint an exact answer when I research it myself. I just got some in order to make the adrenal cocktail, and wanted to make sole as well, but I got the fine grain Himalayan sea salt. I’m sure that’s fine for the cocktail, but will that work for sole until I get the really coarse rocks? Thanks!

  1. Yes, the fine salt is fine for Sole. It will take longer for the more coarse salts to dissolve abd reach saturation.

  2. Coarse unrefined pink Himalayan salt or other unrefined sea or mineral salts are best to make sole.

  3. Yeah, I see that now Sierra- just wondering if my fine grain pink Himalayan salt will suffice for this batch. 🙂

  4. I don't know why it wouldn't. It's the same salt.

  5. http://raising6kids.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/sole-water/. There is a paragraph on it here. Yes course natural unrefined salt is essential to make Sole water, fine ground does not hold the mineral content & will dissolve to fast & not cause the same reaction in the water. In honesty if you are using ground salt on your food for health you want to start buying coarse or chunks & grinding them to get the full spectrum of minerals for health.

  6. Awesome, thanks for the info!!

  7. Great article Sierra Hayes nut MJ laughs at me when I propose how do we get those gorgeous rocks into useable chunks. A hammer?

  8. DruAnn Hopkins McPherson -but, of course I tease you a bit 🙂 I use my inheritance: a rubber mallet, first and then reduce further in my coffee grinder.

  9. There's a guy on youtube that places a chunk (Golf ball size) between parchment paper, then places a flat steel thing (maybe 4 inches wide) and hits it with his fist . lol I would think a mallet would be easier than your fist though lol. Good stress reliever though. 🙂

  10. there is absolutely no difference between using fine ground, coarse or big chunks of salt when making sole. There is no reaction between the water and the salt; dissolving is a physical process and the size of the grains only matters when it comes to the dissolving rate.
    I wish I know where the person who wrote the blog entry on the sole posted above got that information from, as it has no scientific basis whatsoever.
    Salt undergoes a simple physical process when being finely ground; its chemical composition is not altered in the process in any way.

  11. Thank you , Alex Lex 🙂 I took that blog post with two grains of salt… one fine and the other course. LOL

  12. LOL MJ Hamp no chunks?

  13. I have never known anyone that makes Sole with fine grain salt, I'll stick with what I have learned growing up about Sole 🙂

  14. Salt is no longer salt and water is no longer water, it becomes a completely new structure 🙂

  15. Sierra Hayes, what's wrong with fine grain salt ? And what makes the chunks more appropriate for making sole in your opinion?
    Can you elaborate on this newly formed structure please?

  16. That one chunk is sequestered in my cheek!

  17. Alex Lex The mixture of water and crystal salt, called “sole” (so-lay), is the primordial soup of life, and the most flexible physical representation of pure solar and light energy. When water and this salt come together they create this new dimension, Sole. In German, the word sole, which is derived from the Latin word “sol”, which means sun. Sole is nothing but the fluid materialization of sunlight. When water combines with salt, the positive ions of the salt surround the negative ions of the water molecules and the negative ions of the salt surround the positive ions of the water molecules. The ions become hydrolyzed. In this process the geometrical structure of the salt and the water is changed and a totally new structure is formed, a third dimension. Water is no longer water and salt is not salt anymore. The crystalline structure of the sole is so profound that its vibration pattern lasts over 24 hours in our bodies.

  18. As for not using "fine grain salt" because that's what my Momma taught me lol

  19. thanks Sierra. Re the explanation you provided above… I was actually looking for your opinion 😉 .
    I am familiar with the physical processes that happen when salt dissolves in water, and other than tradition, I honestly see no reason for using one size grains over others. Fine grains simply dissolve faster, that's all there is to it. 🙂
    Fwiw, the water molecule is not made of ions, so there are no negative or positive ions of water. Water – H2O- is a polar molecule, though and it does have a positive and a negative pole (more specifically one negative – oxygen and two positives – the two hydrogens). Another thing – a crystalline structure is a highly organized structure… not the terminology I'd use for describing a solution of salt in water.

  20. If you know all this why bother asking me lol….I'll stick with what I believe 🙂 Thanks

  21. just trying to address some misconceptions, nothing else 🙂

  22. No misconceptions here 🙂 Thanks anyway.
