Celtic Grey Sea Salt

Suitable for: Seasoning, Cooking, Bathing

A naturally mineral rich brine moist salt harvested from the Atlantic seawater off the coast of Brittany, France. This salt is harvested using the 2,000-year-old Celtic method of wooden rakes allowing no metal to touch the salt. It is naturally aired and sun-dried in clay ponds and gathered with wooden tools to preserve its living enzymes as marine micro flora and macronutrients are trapped as it dries. Because it is unrefined, it contains all of the 84 beneficial live elements found in seawater, with no chemicals, preservatives or additives.

 

This salt has a light grey hue that it gets from the mineral rich, pure clay lining of the salt beds it is harvested from.

Celtic Grey Salt is best used for cooking.  Due to is moist characteristics this salt is not suitable for salts grinders but can be easily crumbled with the hand to seasoning food.  It is widely use for brining and salt crust baking.

Celtic Grey salt also works well in bathing, with it soft crumbling texture it easily melts into the bath water, providing a softening affect on the skin.
