King of Salt – Salt from the Primal Ocean in Bad Essen

During the early stages of the formation of planet Earth, incessant downpour led to the erosion of mountains and allowed rivers and brooks to carve their way into the earth’s surface. Deep valleys developed, the atmosphere contained increasingly less moisture, and more and more water gathered on the surface. The clouds thinned, and finally the sun came shining through. The constant rainfall was over, and the primal ocean covered a large part of the earth’s surface.

With the water, vast amounts of minerals and salts were swept from the upper layers of the soil into the rivers and on into the Primal Ocean. Water kept evaporating as clouds, but the salt remained and enriched in the sea. In many places, the Primal Ocean dried up, and some of its minerals became rock salt. The sea water kept changing its constitution  due to the  rain and the erosion of the mountains throughout millions of years. Of this original liquid, nothing remains.
Or does it? In the little spa town of Bad Essen they made a sensational discovery: at a depth of 800m they found a bubble of liquid – sea water from the Primal Ocean, many millions of years old.

Salt can be found all over the world – but liquid salt from the Primal Ocean is a limited natural resource only to be found in Bad Essen. Early in the morning, with dewdrops still hanging on the leaves, a small family business in Lower Saxony is already bustling with activity. Since 5 years they produce salt from the Primal Ocean sea water in Bad Essen.

In contrast to boiling salt or the process of retrieving sea salt Bad Essen uses a special method that ensures all ingredients of the Primal Ocean  sea water are retained in the salt. The creation of the salt crystals is very elaborate and takes a lot of time and manual labour. The result is the only salt from the Primal Ocean sea water.
