Healthy Rosemary and Seaweed Salt

Why use this salt?

Our soils (if you’re in Australia or New Zealand) are often depleted of Iodine, the mineral responsible for keeping our thyroid in control. Luckily seaweeds/sea vegetables are high in it!

So I decided to put together my own healthy herby salt!

Healthy Rosemary and Seaweed Salt


  • 1 sheet of a nori sheet/a piece of kombu/a few tbsp. of mekambu
  • a few tbsp. of sea salt

How to:

  1. In a coffee grinder take one sheet of nori seaweed, kombu, a few tablespoons of mekambu or another sea vegetable and grind till fine.
  2. Add a few tablespoons of rosemary and a teaspoon of  sea salt and grind again until fine.
  3. Store in an air tight container in a dry, preferably dark place.


  • It’s best to use it on a dish after it has been cooked as a condiment.
  • Celtic sea salt contains over 82 buffering elements to protect against the effect of sodium chloride.
  • Salt can be omitted if you are suffering with a condition that contradicts the use of salt in the diet and you can just make it with seaweed and rosemary, however saying that celtic/himalayan sea salt is much better for you then normal refined table salt and its also good to know that a completely salt-free diet does not contribute to health. Remember to have moderation with everything, even moderation!
  • How to use: Use a small pinch on salads, soups, vegetable dishes and meat, fish and poultry dishes which flavours them nicely.
  • Salt (sodium chloride) is important for the electrolyte balance in the body.
  • You can add a tablespoon of chia seeds and grind into the seaweed mix.
  • This is also a great way to get more sea vegetables in your diet.
