When you have lost someone you love it is a difficult and stressful time. Deciding the best way to take care of the cremated remains can be difficult. The team at Scattering On Water is here to help you during your time of need and answer any questions you might have.
Rock Salt Urns
One option to consider is a rock salt urn which is a beautiful and natural product. The rock salt is mined from the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. The salt is estimated to be 250 million years old, making the salt extremely pure and free from modern-day contaminants.
Iron Oxides in the salt impart a beautiful, unique orange coloring and marbling making it appropriate for a keepsake in your home, or to be used in a water ceremony or both. The coloring makes each urn one of a kind, a reminder the person we loved was also special and beautiful.
Choosing a Water Scattering
Many people enjoy water activities, whether it’s time at the beach, fishing, or a stream by a cabin. If your loved one was one of those people, a scattering on water is perfect. It is comforting to have family and friends at the scattering ceremony when returning your loved one to their favorite place.
When the urn is released at a beach the tide will carry the urn out to the ocean. If the release is in open water the urn will slowly sink giving people time to remember. Candles can be lit, favorite songs sung and stories shared. It will be a caring and kind gathering that will honor your loved one’s life and it is comforting to know they are in their favorite place.
As the salt urn is a natural product of the earth it will slowly dissolve, releasing your loved one back to the earth in a slow and respectful manner. Salt naturally occurs in the earth so the process will not harm the earth in any manner. If you choose to use a rock salt urn as a keepsake in your home, make sure to keep the container dry and do not store it in a humid area.
