What's a Salt Lamp?

Himalayan Salt Co. - Himalayan Salt Lamp Benefits

Have you ever heard of a Himalayan salt lamp?

Many people haven’t but they have recently seen a surge in popularity. They are inexpensive and have many healthful benefits.

They purify the air and help reduce allergy symptoms.

It sounds illogical that a rock of salt with a lightbulb inside it could purify the air in your home. However, it really does. The Himalayan rock salt attracts water molecules. The water molecules carry with them dust and allergens. The pollutants remain trapped inside the salt while the heat causes the then purified water to evaporate back into the air.

They remove positive ions from the air.

Positive ions are molecules which lack an electron and therefore have a positive charge. They seek to find an electron to balance their charge. Electronic devices in the home (such as computers TVs and phones) disturb the electromagnetic properties of the matter around them. This disturbance causes electrons to fly off molecules and create more positive ions.

Positive ions are unhealthy for a number of reasons. They cause the microscopic hairs that clear debris from the respiratory system, or cilia, to become less effective. They also lead to general physical and mental fatigue. Himalayan salt lamps expel negative ions which neutralize the positive ions. This helps promote respiratory heath and vitality.

They provide protection from electromagnetic radiation.

In our everyday lives, we are constantly exposed to small levels of electromagnetic radiation. We expose ourselves to this radiation with every moment we spend in the proximity of an electronic device.

The negative ions expelled by Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize this electromagnetic radiation. Keeping one near your TV, computer, or gaming console can help with this.

All of these benefits come together to promote better mood and concentration during the day and better sleep at night.

Leave the lamp on all day, only shutting it when you leave the house for best effect. Be sure to protect the lamp from moisture. After all, it is made of salt. Treat it as a delicate work of art.

Himalayan Salt Lamps make wonderful additions to bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, kitchens, dining tables and offices. Pretty much any room in your home where you spend time is a good place for a Himalayan Salt Lamp. After using one for a short time you will feel a difference in your overall well-being.

Outside of the home, Himalayan Salt Lamps are an excellent addition to offices, gyms, spas and salons, massage parlors, yoga and fitness studios, retail stores, and anywhere else you wish to achieve a relaxing and inviting environment filled with positive energy and clean air!

We recommend placing larger Himalayan Salt Lamps in bigger rooms. A larger Himalayan Salt Lamp emits more negative ions than smaller ones due to the greater amount of lamp surface area. If you have a large room that you wish to ionize, this can be accomplished either by using one or two large Himalayan Salt Lamps or, alternatively, by utilizing several smaller lamps placed strategically around the room. It all depends on the desired visual effect you wish to achieve.

What is the difference between a Himalayan Salt Lamp and a Himalayan Salt Candle Holder?

Both our Himalayan Salt Lamps and our Himalayan Salt Candle Holders are made of 100% genuine Himalayan Salt. The biggest difference is that the Salt Lamps are illuminated from within by a 15 watt candelabra based light bulb, and the candle holders are illuminated by a tea light or candle of your choice.

Himalayan Salt Lamps are superior for air ionization, as they are much larger and have more surface area. They are also illuminated for longer periods of time due to the fact that they are powered by a light bulb. Those who leave their Himalayan Salt Lamps turned on the most will receive the greatest air ionizing benefits!
