Where can I get Good, Therapeutic Sea Salts?

Please refer to this website to learn about the countless healing benefits of sea salt – internally and externally. Natural Sea Salt is an amazing mineral that we have replaced with synthetic table salt. Sea salts have many minerals that are perfectly balanced -unlike sodium table salt- and are therefore healthy and essential for good health.
