Here is a list of our salts and their respective harvesting methods:
Light Grey Celtic- Hand harvested using method invented by the Celts who settled this region of France. Seawater at high tide is trapped in estuaries until it evaporates to a brine, in which it is guided by the salt farmer through a series of clay-lined beds until by the end it is crystallizing. The farmer uses wooden rakes to pull the sunken crystals imparted with the grey color from the bed of the harvesting ponds. With little more done than natural draining, the yield is a moist, natural crystal salt with the brine, or “bitterns” still intact.
Fine Ground Celtic- This salt comes from the Light Grey Celtic, just low-temperature dried and crushed for convenience. Great for baking and as a transition salt (looks the closest to regular salt)
Gourmet Kosher- Hand harvested by salt farmers from lined beds where seawater is piped in and allowed to evaporate. As the crystals form they are kept in motion, yielding a beautiful, tiny, delicate crystal.
Makai Pure- Greenhouse harvested salt. The seawater is taken from deep ocean currents where there is higher salinity, which yields a high-mineral salt with beautiful natural chunks and flakes.
Kosher Celtic- Naturally harvested from salt ponds where the seawater is naturally filtered up through the ground. This is the most moist salt we have. Also for its price the highest minerals. Even the fine ground variety is very moist, full of the mineral-rich brine.
Flower of the Ocean- This is the “cream of the crop” of salts. By skimming the crystals off of the surface of the brine, only the most delicate crystals are caught before they sink to become the Light Grey Celtic salt. Flower of the Ocean is a culinary treasure, known as a “finishing salt” or an “expediting salt” to be pinched on food right before serving. No need for a grinder with this salt, as the crystals are easily crushed between the fingers.
Unrefined salts like ours have no more than trace amounts of Iodine, not enough to satisfy your daily recommended amount. Try our Gourmet Seaweed Seasoning for a great tasting seasoning that includes natural Iodine! Here are more of our Iodine options Celtic Sea Salt Iodine.
We strive to ensure that the salt you get from us is just salt as Mother Nature intended. Our producers test at the source and we do annual 3rd party testing. We test for pollutants like mercury, lead, and aluminum. We also test for radiation, petroleum, and micro-plastics.
How blessed we are to live in this age. Humanity has progressed through the time of the hunter-gatherer to the agricultural revolution, and still further through the industrial era and the technological advancements of the present day. Reflecting on the world we live in, I am continually amazed by the awesome power of human potential. We are beings with the ability to be or achieve anything we wish. We have the air, water, land, and intelligence.
We can learn, create or manifest almost anything we imagine.
This power is not unique to certain individuals; it is present in everyone. Why, then, doesn’t everyone reach his or her fullest potential? Many of us have beliefs and internal agreements that keep us from realizing our power- some of these we learned consciously, and others influence us without our direct knowledge. We are subjected to judgment, criticisms, and we make agreements that these environmental influences are true. They become beliefs to us, and we hold them tightly. We could be born in an environment that believes if you don’t pray a certain way, the prayers won’t be heard. We could be born in an environment that believes some races are better than others, or one that holds an agreement that women aren't able to accomplish as much as men. Don Miguel Ruiz writes about this idea very eloquently in his book, The Four Agreements. Once we identify the agreements we’ve made, we can begin to decide which are truly ours, and which ones we can reject.
Health advocates often say we are what we eat, but I would like to offer that we are our words and actions, which reflect our internal agreements and deepest beliefs. You can use your thoughts and words to create an infinite abundance of all you ever imagined in life. Remember that the infinite reserve of your potential can manifest your thoughts and feelings, both positively and negatively.
Just as you are able to achieve anything you believe you can, you are also able to hinder your own achievement if you believe you can’t.
If we are our words and actions, we can begin to reach our potential by being more impeccable with our words. Think of the awesome power of your word. Ruiz describes language as being almost magical, in that it can be used create beauty or, when used malevolently or carelessly, can create ugliness. What do your words say about you?
If you squeeze an orange you get orange juice. If you are squeezed from stress, what comes out of your mouth?
Is it doubt, disbelief, fear, insecurities, hatred, jealousy, or anger? Or do your words reflect love, understanding, compassion, and confidence in what you were born to be?
Today, I ask you to let go of the agreements that have kept you from being someone or doing something truly great. Let go and allow your soul, the source of your real power, to fulfill its ultimate calling. It doesn't matter what has happened in the past, how old you are, or what mistakes you've made before-your past has nothing to do with your grand potential. I want to leave you with a quote from Brian Tracy:
"The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good."
I urge you -- start sailing, and marvel at the beauty you are able to create.
