Salt is an unusual gift – and one to be treasured. It may seem very ordinary but the truth is unrefined natural salt is rare and not nearly as plentiful as refined salt.
Oryx Desert Salt is 100% pure, sun-dried and natural, harvested in the remote Kalahari Desert from pristine underground springs flowing through Dwyka rock 300 million years old. Because it’s unrefined, it retains all its natural mineral and micro-nutrients so essential for good health.
Giving a gift of salt has a long tradition. Apart from its practical use, salt carries great symbolic value as a gift. Giving salt signifies trust between you and the other person, it’s a way of saying ‘may your life always have flavour’ and also expresses the hope that your relationship will endure and be preserved. Which is why it makes a perfect gift for clients and business associates whatever the occasion.
Oryx Desert Salt has a variety of gifting options available, to suit any budget, which all include our pure, unrefined desert salt, free from chemicals or additives and containing naturally balanced vital minerals and trace elements. Other options that can be included are black pepper, smoked salt, wine salt and braai salt. Because our grinder heads are so long-lasting, we’ve also created refill packs. Each grinder can be refilled up to 10 times. We strongly support being sustainable and environmentally conscious so REFILL, REUSE, REAL VALUE is one of our key values.
Our products are packed by Ukama Packing Solutions – which is a group of social enterprises started with the aim of helping women from previously disadvantaged communities create their own micro-enterprises. Our 100% cotton drawstring bags are made by a local women’s group and our salt pots are made by Macassar Pottery – it’s another one of our sustainability goals – to support local businesses as much as possible.
We believe in giving back to the community and a percentage of monthly turnover is donated to the Khomani San and Mier communities who own !Xaus Lodge in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the Kalahari Desert. That means, whenever Oryx Desert Salt is purchased, you’re also giving back – it’s a small gift making a big difference.
It’s also a gift straight from Nature – we’ve just packaged it for you. The options are endless…
Go beyond the ordinary!
