From ancient times, Hawaiian sea salt was used both spiritually and practically. It played an important role in ceremonial blessings to purify a space, a relationship or for the blessing of a voyage.
Pa'akai is the name given by Hawaiians for salt. Its literal meaning is "solidified sea water." The gift of salt symbolizes the intention to nourish and solidify a relationship, today and tomorrow.
Our Pure Kona Hawaii Sea Salt is produced from ancient, pristine deep sea waters, 2200 feet below the surface off the Kona Coast, unaffected by human influences and surface pollution. Even the surface waters in the area are rated Class AA by the Hawaii State Department of Health.
Waters are being delivered through a 5-micron in-line filter before entering fully enclosed ponds before being allowed to evaporate in three unhurried weeks using only the warming heat of the Hawaiian Sun. It is pure white without any whitening agents as a result of the natural solar evaporation process achieved in our protected salt houses.
