Welcome to the Healthy Salt Company


The Healthy Salt Company has expanded into salt & salt artisan products since our inception and now purchases salt from many sources around the world. As a BioGro certified company our products are rigorously screened to ensure they come to you from sustainable, organic, & free trade sources. Initially we began importing Himalayan crystal salt and lamps to New Zealand in 2003 under Lotus Magik Limited. Now trading as The Healthy Salt Company, we continue to be a dedicated wholesaler of only the best quality Himalayan crystal salt products and organic spices within New Zealand.



Our salt is sourced from the foothills of the Himalayan mountain region hence the reference to "Himalayan Salt". The owners of The Healthy Salt Company have been to the mines, so we can authenticate this wonderful gift from Mother Nature.

We were taken by the utter beauty of the salt caves and the incredible ‘electrical’ energy in the purified, ionic environment of the caves. The temperature remains a constant 18°C, despite temperatures over 40°C outside.

Whilst there we spoke with many of the locals, and numerous communities are being supported by the trade in salt. The locals believe that this salt has been thrown up to the top of the Earth as a gift from Mother Earth for humans to use, otherwise the salt would have remained buried. The salt is mixed up with some 400 million year old rocks, which gives us an idea of its incredible journey from a once mighty ocean.

    “The visual appearance of the salt is appealing, but probably the most important thing is the flavour. I really enjoy the flavour and texture of it.”

    Geoff Scott owner/chef at Auckland top restaurant, -Vinnies in Herne Bay


    “I use it in everything. Firstly, because it’s organic and contains many different kinds of minerals, so it’s very good for your health, which is important for my customers. It also has a beautiful taste – not too strong. I liked it from the moment I tried it.”

    Jean-Philippe Kerstenne, Aubergine North Shore


    "Himalayan salt has amazing healing properties known by the ancients and recently rediscovered. It also has an incredible flavour. Gordon Ramsay would recommend it for that alone!"
