Today, salt is inexpensive

once used as a method of exchange–Roman soldiers
received a salt allowance as part of their pay. Salt
was valued by the ancient Hebrews and Greeks, throughout

Salt (sodium chloride) comes either from salt mines or from the sea. Most of today's salt is mined and comes from large deposits left by dried salt lakes throughout the world.
Table salt, a fine-grained refined salt with additives that make it free-flowing, is mainly used in cooking and as a table condiment. Iodized salt is table salt with added iodine (sodium iodide) – particularly important in geographic areas that lack natural iodine, an important preventative for hypothyroidism.
Sea salt is the type of salt used throughout history and is the result of the evaporation of sea water – the more costly of the two processes. It comes in fine-grained or larger crystals. Generally, sea salt contains more minerals and trace elements which are missing from regular table salt.
Use Cerulean Seas Sea Salt as a cooking ingredient or a condiment as you would regular table salt for a slight change of pace.
