The Product

Hand harvested the traditional way, after the evaporation of the sea water in nature-made sea-water pools, sea salt is washed with pure water and left to dry under the sun before being crushed into fine crystals. This chemical-free process preserves the nutritious trace minerals. It is enhanced with dried rosemary leaves handpicked from our own Costa Navarino Estates.

History

For thousands of years it was held in high esteem, since it made meals tastier and served as an effective food preservative. Homer called it “a divine substance”. In Hesiod’s Theogony, Aphrodite was born in salty sea foam. Among her epithets was Haligeneous, literally the “salt born” and she is often depicted holding a small bag of salt. These attributes of Aphrodite illustrate the association made by the ancients between the goddess of love and their belief in the generative power of salt.
