we appreciate you

It's Customer Appreciation day [until this Friday, May 21st]: buy any jar of salt and as a 'thank you,' receive a free 1 oz. salt sampler of your choice!

This year, our most popular salt samplers have been:  almond cardamom, bloody mary, lavender rosemary, and chorizo.  To take advantage of the offer:  just write which salt sampler you'd like in the 'message to the sender' box when you check-out through PayPal, and we'll include it with your order.

Our almond cardamom salt also just won an award from the NASFT [National Association for the Specialty Food Trade].  We're over the moon to snag a Silver medal for Best Flavor Enhancer!  The next round of judging is in June, where we'll be going for the Gold!  *fingers crossed*

Competition was tough, with 1,570 entries across 31 categories.  The judging feedback was based upon the following criteria: 1 denoting 'poor,' while 5 is 'excellent.'
Our almond cardamom salt scored:

Quality:  5
Innovation:  4
Packaging:  4
Ingredient profile:  5
Pricing:  5

Judge comments:  wow.


  1. Does that work for the online ordering as well? It did not when I tried...

  2. I'm sorry about the website! We've been having a malfunctioning issue with PayPal.

    To take advantage of the offer: just write which salt sampler you'd like in the 'message to the sender' box, and I'll include it in your order. Thanks!

  3. FYI the "message to sender" box seems to have disappeared from PayPal.

  4. Please excuse the inconvenience. The best solution as of today is to check out through PayPal, and send me an email to info@secretsalts.com to specify the salt sampler of your choice. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, and for your patience! We are working to rectify this matter with our website developer.

  5. You know Dead Sea Bath Salts can be a natural healing treatment with many therapeutic benefits.
