A good friend started me off with a Salt lamp as a present and said it would be good for me and that was it I have never looked back and now have them in each room of the house instead of ordinary lamps. Himalayan salt lamps host an array of health and environmental benefits which make them very beneficial for the home. You can get them in different colours, and they come with a dimmer so you can easily switch to adjust the lamps’ brightness. Himalayan salt lamps are made from pieces of Himalayan salt crystals. The chunks of salt produce negative ions, which yield positive effects on indoor air. Below is a list of the benefits of having a salt lamp in each room.
Calm Allergies and reduce asthma
Boost Blood Flow
Reduce Stress and Promote Relaxation
Sharpen Concentration and Performance
They reduce electromagnetic radiation (the stuff that flows from all our electronic devices)
Some studies have shown that negative ions, such as those emitted by Himalayan salt lamps, can accelerate blood flow. This boost helps to improve several disorders of the vascular system and can prevent specific damage to the lungs. The lamps are believed to filter dust, mould and pet dander from indoor air. If you have trouble sleeping at night having one of these in your bedroom as the light has a soothing glow and can help anyone with insomnia.
Having a salt lamp on your desk while your working is believed to help with concentration, they also provide a boost of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which creates the feeling of happiness.
Studies have suggested that negative ions improve mood and energy levels.
Salt lamps can help increase your energy levels if you are around a lot of appliances and electronic equipment all the time and feeling sluggish. Choose to put a lamp in the room you most chill in and see how you feel over a few weeks of having it there; you should be feeling a lot more energetic and notice a real difference.
If you have heard of salt therapy, they use Himalayan salt to generate negative ions, which is to help counterbalance the influx of positive ions from the many electronic devices we use every day. This improves your overhaul mental and emotional health, helping you relax and de-stress.
You should always look before buying that each item is Certified if it is being plugged into an electric outlet. I leave mine on for a few hours each evening but never overnight, and the bulbs last much longer than a standard bulb.
I find that the salt lamps I have let off a beautiful warm glow and can make a room look really relaxing and inviting and great for meditation.
Never put water on your salt lamp or leave in an area where water will come into contact with it. To take care of your salt lamp always turn off at the wall and wipe it with a soft dry cloth making sure there are no other chemicals on the fabric before you start and clean all over its a simple as that. Never let your animals near the salt lamps as too much salt is poisonous for cats and dogs.
Salt lamps originate from the Himalayas, a mountain range that stretches about 1,500 miles across Pakistan India. Authentic salt lamps come from the Khewra salt mine in Pakistan. The salt often has a pinkish tint due to mineral impurities and once mined, this salt is hand carved into lamps.
