Going back to Kauai this week and will have to visit these salt ponds and also load up on locally harvested sea salt — Aloha!
On my recent trip to the island of Kauai, I was lucky enough to visit a salt company – they sell a variety of culinary salts featuring the Hawaiian red salt produced on the islands. This mineral rich salt gets it’s rosy hue from the natural volcanic clay on the islands. A short drive from their shop, is an actual salt pond where sea salt is made as it has been for centruries.
Fresh ocean water is allowed to evaporate in small man made ponds leaving behind the pure sea salt. Salt is one of the oldest beauty ingredients and in fact was once used as currency in many parts of the world because of it’s value.
I like to use sea salt in the bath a spoonful of coconut oil and a cup of sea salt thrown into warm bathwater leaves my skin clean, fresh and silky smooth.
