14 Reasons To Have A Himalayan Salt Lamp In Every Room Of Your Home


Salt is a wonderful thing. Not only does it give our food taste and flavor—it also can work wonders for your health when used properly. Available in several shapes and sizes and emitting beautiful, rich colours, a Himalayan Salt Lamp not only looks warm and welcoming, but it has beneficial health properties.

Salt lamps are blocks of pure Himalayan salt, so they come from the same region of the world. Also known as the ‘Vitamins of the Air’, they are made from the salt that came from ancient oceans, and serve as a perfect air ionizer.

How Himalayan Salt Lamps Work?

Himalayan salt lamps have the ability to emit negative ions in the air which are healthy for the human body.

The ionization is supported by the bulb inside of the salt block since the bulb heats the salt block around it. Himalayan salt attracts the water around it. It is hygroscopic. Therefore, the Himalayan salt lamps may become dump or wet, especially in an environment with high humidity. As the bulb heats the salt lamp, the water evaporates and the negative ions are released in the air. The negative ions bind with the positive harmful ions such as allergens, molds and bacteria, and neutralize the environment in the house.

Is Himalayan Salt Safe To Consume?

Regular table salt is a poison for humans. Our body can’t process it correctly which sometimes leads to Gout, Arthritis, and other ailments. Himalayan Salt is the best salt for the human body. No anti-caking agents, no preservatives and is full of the same trace minerals found in your body. That is why it works for so many symptoms (headaches, acid reflux, leg cramps) and actually aides in detoxifying. Many people with high or low BP have had their pressures normalize once they switch to Himalayan Salt.
