10 Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps
I’ve long admired the aesthetics of Himalayan salt lamps, and after doing some research last autumn I bought one. These artful light sources aren’t just a treat for the eyes, they also have a slew of benefits to accompany their warm glow.
Himalayan salt lamps are made out of just that, hollowed out blocks of pure Himalayan salt. We’re surrounded by air that’s full of positive and negative ions. Positive ions, AKA electronic air pollution, are created by electronic devices and can contribute to health problems such as allergies, stress, and insomnia. Salt lamps work by emitting negative ions that create a cleansing effect on the air.

Himalayan salt lamps do have a limited range, so you’ll want to place yours in the room in which you spend the most time. Check to make sure that your lamp is made from pure Himalayan salt rather than rock salt to experience actual benefits. And once purchased make sure to keep it away from humid spots like the bathroom, near the dishwasher, or by the washing machine.Posted In house and home, lighting, living
