You don’t know what you’re missing if you’ve never owned a Himalayan salt lamp. It’s like having an open window – a natural source of fresh, clean air – on your desk, in your living room, by your bed, or wherever you choose to put it.
let’s take a look at the top 10 surprising benefits of the Himalayan Salt Lamp.
A special offer is waiting for you at the end of this article:
1. Salt lamps clean and deodorize the air
Probably the best-known benefit and why most people use them is due to their incredible power to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other air contaminants.
2. Improve mood and concentration
Himalayan pink salt lamps are a great way to naturally boost your mood or help you relax and unwind at the end of the day. At the same time and on the other side of the room, HPS lamps are ideal for improving concentration. Again, this is due to the effect of negative ions on your body, improving the blood and oxygen supply to the brain and other organs, as well as stimulating serotonin – the neurotransmitter that makes us (literally) happy.
3. Reducing allergy and asthma symptoms
Because Himalayan salt lamps remove microscopic particles of dust, scales, mold, and similar from the air, placing one or two lamps in the rooms where you spend the most time can seriously reduce allergic symptoms. Even people with asthma will notice a big difference after a week or two.
4. Relieves coughing
When the Himalayan salt lamp warms up and begins its hygroscopic cycle of airborne particles, it also changes the charge of the molecules that are released. Most houses are filled with positively charged ions that are not particularly good for a person’s health. Positive ions are created by a number of things, but the main source for most of us comes from our electronic devices.
5. Increase energy levels
Taking a drive through the countryside with the windows down, spending time at the beach or camping in the mountains, or just taking a shower in the morning are all things that many find stimulating. It is no coincidence that these are all activities that expose us to increased concentrations of negative ions such as those generated by Himalayan salt lamps. The fact is that positive ions undermine our energetic bodies. Unfortunately, it is all too common for us to try to diagnose the problem as something entirely different.
If you constantly feel tired and don’t know why; try to keep a Himalayan Salt Lamp in the room or rooms where you spend the most time. After about a week or so, you should notice a difference.
6. Better Sleep
Another side effect that results from overexposure to positive ions in the air is that it deprives you of quality sleep. This happens because these positively charged particles can actually reduce the supply of blood and oxygen to the brain, resulting in irregular sleep patterns. Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, so they can help reverse this problem. Keep one or two around your bedroom to improve air quality so you can get a better night’s sleep.
Remember, even if you’re like me and can’t sleep unless the room is completely black, you can always turn off the lamp at bedtime. Leave it on for the rest of the day so it can do its work while you are awake. People in humid climates should be aware that HPS lamps tend to cry when the salt gets cold. You may want to protect the surfaces by placing a saucer underneath and make sure to follow the use and care instructions that must be included with your lamp!
7. Treating Seasonal Affective Disorder
In addition to generating negative ions that improve mood and energy levels, the soft, natural light emitted by a Himalayan pink salt lamp is close enough to the heat of the sun to be used to relieve the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder. This year, when the days get shorter, push back the lethargy by surrounding yourself with a few HPS lamps set on timers.
8. Neutralize electromagnetic radiation
Today, most of us live in a metaphorical ocean of electromagnetic (EM) radiation from our electronics (e.g., television, computer, cell phone, tablet, household appliances, stereo, etc.). Although they may be invisible, the long-term effects of exposure to EM can be very serious. Constant exposure to EM radiation is known to increase stress levels, cause chronic fatigue, and decrease the body’s immune response, among other things.
Because they emit negative ions into the air, Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize EM radiation. Keep one near computers, televisions, and other electrical appliances you use frequently to reduce the potential danger to you and your family.
