Black Salt (Kala namak or Sanchal) is a natural Ayurvedic product ranging from amber to a dark purple, brownish-black colour, hence the name. Black Salt is produced by combining the now familiar Pink Himalayan Rock Salt with herbs and spices. The popular Rock Salt is heated to more than 1400 degrees Farenheit, and then mixed with the seed of the Black Myrobalan tree (harad) which lends a sulphurous flavour to the salt and darkens its colour.

How to use:
Himalayan Salt Licks can be used in the stable, shelter or field
Suitable for placing in the feed bowl for horses or ponies that bolt their feed
Himalayan Salt Licks are more resistant to rain than ordinary pressed salt licks, but will deteriorate if left sitting in water
Restrict access to licks in a stable if you find your horse or pony is taking too much interest : use in feed bowl instead
Black Salt is used extensively in traditional Indian dishes bringing its distinctive flavour to appetisers, marinades, chutneys, yoghurts, pickles and salads adding a sulphurous aroma and distinctive smoky taste to food.
When we were first sent samples of the Black Salt by our Pakistan supplier we were sceptical as to whether our horses would eat it but we couldn't have been more wrong! As soon as the Black Salt Licks were hung up in their stables they immediately started licking them. Of course when you investigate the anecdotal and traditional health benefits associated with the use of Black Salt it really isn't any wonder the horses are so keen!
