Wild Icelandic arctic thyme is a plant that grows on gravel soils and in dry heath lands in Iceland. The arctic thyme is complemented with Saltverk geothermal flaky sea salt and together they give the experience of the wild nature of Iceland.
The floral aroma of the arctic thyme awakes the feeling of walking around in the Icelandic nature after a summer rain.

Saltverk's Flake Salt is produced with 100% geothermal energy
Saltverk Flaky sea salt is a crunchy, mineral-fresh Icelandic sea salt produced using only energy from geothermal hot springs in the northwest of Iceland.
Our salt making method is based on the 17th century old method practiced as well in Reykjanes. Geothermal energy is the sole energy source used, which means that during our whole process we leave zero carbon footprints on the environment.
The word remote might have been invented to describe the Westfjords of Iceland. After finishing my studies I wanted to create something that honored and built upon traditional Icelandic food methods in a sustainable way. In 2011, Reykjanes in the Westfjords attracted me exactly for those particular reasons - its remoteness, natural resources and history of salt making.
The Danish king established salt production in the 18th century using geothermal energy to produce salt. The production stopped a few decades later and the tradition of saltmaking in Iceland came to an end.
But the tradition was not lost forever - in 2011 Saltverk was founded and reestablished salt making in Iceland. Making sustainable, hand harvested products of high quality is the passion that has guided us along the way. Today, Saltverk salt is used in many of the best restaurants and in the homes of food enthusiasts around the world.
