History

Plant & perfume

Kala namak is pink Himalayan salt harvested and then processed naturally. We fill a jar with pink Himalayan salt that we will heat to more than 801° C (salt melting temperature), we add about 1% of plants. (Harad seeds, Amla seeds, Salsola stocksii leaves or others). The idea through these plants is to bring sodium carbonate, which will be transformed by chemical reaction with the salt in part into hydrogen sulphide.

Cooking will last 2 to 3 days continuously and stirring regularly. At the end, we obtain a black-purple colored salt and giving off this very particular smell.

This salt comes to us from afar and is historic. Famous doctors of ancient India, Charaka and Sushrutha mention its use in the 5th and 6th centuries respectively.
