  1. These are really cute, I’m not entirely sure where to find the Himalyan crystal salt, but I’m sure I can substitute with epsom salt ?

  2. Hi LiznaE. You can purchase Himalayan Crystal Salt at health shops, Dischem, Woolworths and I think I even saw it at Pick ‘n Pay. You could substitute it with Epsom Salt & Course Salt. Himalayan Salt is naturally Pink due to the many minerals and trace elements it contains.
