Why a Himalayan Salt Lamp is One of The Greatest Things You Can Own?
Himalayan salt lamp is like bringing the outdoors inside. Have you ever noticed that you feel better by spending time outside, especially if you are nearby water, like an ocean or waterfall? The same is true for after a rainstorm. This is because the air is filled with negative ions. Negative ions are good.
To give you some perspective, in locations such as the beach, there are up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter.
A place such as a city will be as low as 100 ions per cubic centimeter.
Positive ions are a result of electronic equipment in our environments such as computers, televisions, microwaves, etc. They cause problems including allergies, increased bodily stress and insomnia. Generally, too many positive ions in the air can make you feel sluggish and stuffy. Positive can also impact your health by causing increased nervousness, sleep interruptions, increased brain fog, increased free radical accumulation in your body and increased bodily stress. It is really important to neutralize the positive ions in your air.
How it Works
The salt lamps work by creating negative ions – the light within the lamp heats up the salt crystals creating the negative ions. This then neutralises the positive ions in the air. Positive ions are a result of electronic equipment in our environments such as computers, televisions, microwaves, etc. They cause problems including allergies, increased stress and insomnia. Generally, too many positive ions in the air can make you feel sluggish and stuffy.
The salt lamp helps to clean the air and you feel better as a result.
Likewise, airborne toxins such as allergens, bacterias and mold carry positive charges and are neutralised by the salt lamp.
Himalayan salt lamps have been shown to be helpful with:
allegies, blood system disorders, stress-related disorders, insomnia and sleep disturbances, skin conditions, respiratory problems, colds, headaches & rheumatism
Where to Put Your Himalayan Salt Lamp :
These salt lamps have a limited range. Having one in your home is a great thing but it will not impact the air of your entire home. Rather, it will improve the air within the general vicinity of the lamp.
It is important to place the lamp wherever you spend the most time or where your environment is most impacted by electronic devices.
Note that your salt lamp may sometimes appear wet or “sweaty.” This is because water is attracted to the surface of the lamp (the salt) and then it evaporates quickly because of the heat from the bulb inside. This evaporation process is what generates the negative ions.
Amazing Health benefits ..... including peaceful, relaxing Sleep!!!
Super therapeutic, calming & relaxing!
We use Salt Lamps often in our home, and especially in winter months when it isn’t possible to have the windows open or to spend as much time outside. We now have a Salt Lamp in each room of our home and love them for their ambient glow! xxx
