The flower of salt is a rare flower that grows on the ocean floor, in lakes and on sands. The flower of salt is made of a compound of calcium carbonate, magnesium chloride and bicarbonate, which are contained in different salts of water. Fleur de sel or flor de sal is the common name for this salt, which is also known as sea salt, or “sea salt”. It is produced commercially in several countries, including the United States, Canada, Argentina, Norway, China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam. Fleur de sel is produced from clay pots, out of which a thin film of the salt develops. A flower of salt flower represents the beauty and fragrance of the salty air.
Ancient peoples believed that the early earths oceans were the cradle of life and that creatures living at that time used tiny amounts of this liquid to help them grow. This “sea salt” was thought to be important for helping to make the first ocean teeming with life, as well as being a cure for several ailments experienced by early humans. The flower of salt was thought to symbolize the various elements found in seashells.
Fleur de sel became associated with several other medicinal herbs as well, such as staph, licorice, garlic, ginger and turmeric. Because of the pungent taste of its volatile oil, it was often mixed with honey to make salted candles. The flower of salt was also associated with many other exotic aromatic and flavorful plants, such as the rose, nutmeg, cardamom, anise, and Cayenne pepper. Even today, products made from the salt pans or flakes can be found in candy stores and dried flower shops.
Salt has a wide variety of uses today, including medicine and food. In recent years, its popularity as an industrial preservative has grown tremendously. In fact, most preservatives used in food are derived from sodium chloride.
A very popular preservative, sodium chloride is used to preserve fish, meats, dairy products and other foods that must stay fresh over long periods of time. It’s commonly added to sausages, ground meat, breads and snacks. It is also used as an additive to certain foods in the form of spice rubs, pickles and mustard. Companies such as Mars Inc., Unilever and Sherry Manufacturing Company have been producing pure white crystal salt products for decades. One of the most famous of these companies, however, is the flower of salt mentioned above.
Mars Incorporated produces a line of salt crystals known as Mars Clarity. This brand of crystals contains crushed crystals that are available in several different forms. Two of these different types are shaker pans and cream of tartar. The shaker pans are made of plastic and come in white and cream colors respectively. They are not dissimilar to the clear plastic wares that you would see at the supermarket or department store.
Another variety of crystals produced by Mars Incorporated are called sel flower of salt. These products are intended for use in delicate food preparation. They are a type of crystal salt that is infused with a sweet smelling herb called sunburn. At first sniff, the scent of the herb may remind you of Rosemary, but it does not have the pungent odor that many people associate with salts of this nature.
A third variety of salts produced by Mars Incorporated is known as a rande salt. Gu and salt originated in southwestern France, but are now sold throughout the entire world. It is often used to enhance foods that are high in potassium, such as bananas and tomatoes. This particular flower of salt symbolizes health, happiness, and love throughout the ages.
