Product Description

Soma Salt is the preferred salt of the Ancient Ayurvedic texts.

The ancient Charak Samhita, Ayurveda’s central reference text, lists eight edible and beneficial kinds of salt coming from the Himalayas. It names the best among them, Soma Lavan, or Soma Salt.

This cooling variety of salt is said to give numerous benefits in Charak Samhita. Soma Salt is described in Chapter 27, Verse 300 as: rochanam (tasty), deepanam (increasing the digestive fire, which supports all seven tissues), vrishyam (supporting shukra dhatu, or reproductive tissue), chakchushya (supporting the longevity of the eyes by cooling the liver), avidahi cha (not creating a digestive imbalance due to excess heating quality, and not causing retention of toxins as other salts do), tridoshagnam (pacifying all three doshas and having a somewhat sweet taste), lavanottamam (the best of all salts).

Soma Salt is a cooling rock salt, as the name soma suggests. In nature, soma represents the cooling, nurturing elements which are so often missing in modern life. While all salts have a hot (agni) quality, only Soma Salt has the cooling (soma) quality needed to balance it.

Soma Salt is extracted from the mountains of North West India in the historic land of Sindh. In Vaidya Mishra’s Shaka Vansya Ayurvedic lineage, this salt is known as the “Queen of Salts” due to its high mineral content and its unparalleled somagenic qualities.


 Tests reveal the following mineral content: Calcium 361 mg per 100 g, Iron 1.1 per 100 g, Magnesium 102 per 100 g, Potassium 1600 mg per 100g, Sodium 16,800 mg per 100g.

The salt has been tested for unwanted minerals, heavy metals, or contaminants.

Soma lavan (Soma Salt)


Fine, powdered salt in 1 oz (sample size), 8 oz, and 1 lb


Add to any savory dish. You will find that this salt is less salty and more satisfying than other salts. By comparison, other salts seem almost harsh compared to the sweetness of Soma Salt.

    I usually stay away from salt but this is another level of quality- makes everything taste better and actually settles my stomach and intestines

  3. Amazing salt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2020

    What a strange looking salt - so soft! And the flavor is truly wonderful...not harsh or biting. A very good product.

  4. great salt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Mar 2020

    We love this salt. It tastes good, I know that it will not contribute more heat to our food and body. Soma salt has an excellent gentle flavor that makes our food taste wonderful with a little ghee. Try that on steamed veggies.....so yummy! I use in cooking and baking.

  5. Salt is smooth 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2019

    I have been using the pink Himalayan salt, but when my thyroid doctor recommend I use soma salt instead, I switched instantly without a blink. And I really like the smoothness of this soma salt and how it tastes. Really good.

  6. Truly cool salt! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2019

    Just as Vaidya said this is a cool salt. I use it in all of my cooking and baking. When I eat the prepared items, I always feel good about taking care of myself because the salt has its toxins removed by special preparation.

  7. so far so good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2018

    This was recommended by my ayurvedic practitioner as it is a cooling salt. It is very very strong so you only need a little bit compared to regular salt. It comes in a very fine powder form.

  8. Couldn't believe it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2018

    If you're on the fence with this product, trust me; you will not regret getting this salt. Not only is the taste WAY better than rock salt but the cooling quality of this salt made a huge difference to me since I have salt with almost every meal.

  9. Excellent quality salt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2017

    I tried the Soma salt after seeing several internet posts about Himalian salt containing high concentrations of lead. The soma salt tastes very pure, and it has an invigorating effect, stimulating digestion.

  10. Very nice 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th May 2017

    You only need to use a little bit. Love that.
