What comes to mind when you think of salt? Do you think of a business name? Do you instantly picture the calm vast ocean full of salt water, or maybe a batch of freshly fried tortilla chips sprinkled with salt, ready to be devoured? “Sacred Salt” was something God put on my heart when I tried to think of the perfect business name. I wanted to name this company something biblical, but with deeper meaning.

Did you know there are more than 40 references to salt in the Bible? When you dig into the various symbolic meanings of salt found in God’s Word, it’s pretty miraculous. Salt symbolically represents purity, its ability to preserve, its antiseptic qualities, the flavor it provides, the establishment of relationships, and so much more. After much thought and prayer, we felt strongly to name our company after this small, but mighty word. We are a company devoted to encouraging you to nourish your mind, body, and spirit. One simple way to do this is to just add S.A.L.T.

S Spend time with God and grow your relationship

God Led The Way

When I was trying to think of a name for this company, let’s just say my creative juices were not flowing. For the life of me, I couldn’t come up with anything. I knew I wanted the name to be biblical and give glory to God, but I kept coming back to this little fascination I have with salt.

At one point in time I read Matthew 5:13 and thought to myself, “What in the world does that even mean?” I still don’t think I really grasp all of the biblical meanings of salt. From that day forward though, my interest was piqued. My research on salt in the Bible led me down a rabbit holes of knowledge that opened my eyes. To this day, I’m still soaking in details about biblical references to salt.

When I went to God in prayer asking what He wanted me to name the company, He immediately told me it had to be about salt. Crazy right? When we actually take the time to talk to God, He listens and sometimes even responds. If only I was better about going to God right away! After the Lord gave me “salt,” it seemed natural to move forward with the name Sacred Salt. Sacred means connected to God and one of MANY benefits of salt is to provide flavor. This company is both, connected to God and our products help people discover their true identity in Christ so they can embrace who they really are and bring flavor to the world.
