This gift set of four features miniature Oryx Desert smoked salt, wine salt, and coarse salt grinders and an additional miniature salt refill in a 100% cotton bag. Oryx Desert Salt's recyclable glass bottles include durable ceramic grinder heads, so each bottle can be replenished repeatedly with economical refill boxes.

Size: each grinder measures 55g. Refill measures 175g. A portion of profits from Oryx Desert Salt benefit the Khomani San and Mier communities of the Kalahari Desert.

Unrefined and unprocessed, this 100% pure, crystal white, natural desert salt is harvested from a salt pan in the pristine Kalahari Desert. Salt water from an ancient underground brine lake is drawn into the salt pan and sun-dried, suffusing the salt with essential minerals and trace elements that have been balanced within the earth over millions of years. The simple harvesting process harmonizes sustainably with the natural rainfall, ensuring pure quality and flavor.

Producer Profile:

Kalahari desert salt pan, the source of Oryx salt

During a life-changing 75-mile walk through the Namib desert, founder Samantha Skyring had extraordinary face-to-face encounters with Oryx Gazelles. After researching the Oryx, Samantha found that licking salt is crucial to their survival in the harsh conditions of the Kalahari desert. This experience inspired both the creation and branding of Oryx Desert Salt.
