Himalayan salt lamps are beautiful pink and amber crystal structures made from chunks of fresh Himalayan salt. They come in many forms, either in one large natural chunk, or a few smaller cubes placed in a decorative basket.
Himalayan sea salt is incredibly healthy and is most widely recognized as a replacement for other forms of salt. In the form of beautiful soft glowing lamps, they are even more beneficial for your health, helping to purify air and reduce the load of positive ions that our modern environments create.
Positive ions are caused by damaged air molecules from pollution, electronics and air conditioners. These ions can cause stress, insomnia and increased free radical damage to our bodies, which are detrimental to our health. Regular breaks from electronic environments are helpful, but wouldn’t it be even better to have a regular stream of fresh, healthy ionized air no matter what you’re doing?
Studies have proven that Himalayan salt lamps increase negative ion charge by 300%, which leaves no room for positive ions to corrupt your environment. Here are 7 reasons to have one in every room:
- They Reduce Electromagnetic Radiation
Our electronics emit electromagnetic radiation, which can cause stress and fatigue and chips away at our immune systems. Computers, television, cell phones and tablets devastate the quality of our environments, and Himalayan salt lamps offer a stream of healthy energy and plenty of negative ions to restore the quality of the air you breathe.
- They Purify Air
Dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and other pollutants ruin the purity of the air we breathe, and the perfect way to neutralize it is to place a Himalayan salt lamp on your desk, or in your room. They attract water molecules in the air, which traps impurities in the air and leaves you with fresh, clean air: this is known as hygroscopy.
- They Reduce the Symptoms of Allergies
Most allergies are caused by dust particles, pollen, mildew and pet hair and Himalayan salt lamps help to remove those compounds from the air you breathe. Research has proven that placing one or more lamps in your environment will reduce the symptoms of allergies within two weeks.
- They Increase Your Energy Levels
Invigorating experiences including spending time in forests, on the beach or under a waterfall, and it’s because nature provides relief from positive ions. Himalayan salt lamps have exactly the same effect, leaving you energized and stress-free with minimal effort.
- They Promote Better Sleep
One of the greatest investments in your bedroom could be a Himalayan salt lamp because the steady stream of healthful neutralizing ions improves oxygen flow throughout your body, giving your body better quality air to breathe as you sleep. A great tip is to leave the lamp on a few hours before you sleep, as you likely don’t want to sleep with the light on.
- They Elevate Your Mood
Static energy and stress can often cause us to entertain negative emotions, and to be in a bad mood. The improved blood and oxygen flow that you will get from the effect of a Himalayan salt lamp will lift your mood and give your brain a boost in concentration.
- They Improve Your Breathing
Asthma and other breathing complications can be triggered by polluted, corrupted air. Salt lamps ensure that you breathe cleaner air whenever you are around them, helping to improve breathing and prevent contaminants from entering your lungs.
