Hand-crafted, pinkish-orange stones harvested from the depths of Persian caves hold some *amazing* glows + even better health benefits! Himalayan salt lamps are hollowed-out pieces of salt with a small light bulb placed inside. The lamps emit negative ions that neutralize surrounding positive ions to purify + balance the air. Bring a piece of nature inside this summer to experience the positive effects of Himalayan salt —
Himalayan salt lamps are hygroscopic, which means they can soak up moisture from the air + capture indoor air pollutants, allergens, ++ bacteria! The light bulb heats the salt + water vapor, trapping the pollutants in the salt + allowing the water to evaporate back into the air. This natural purification cycle repeats for as long as you keep the lamp on!
Time for a tech cleanse? Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions that can neutralize positive ions emitted from technology [cell phones, TVs, computers]. Your fav tech pieces release positive ions + electromagnetic radiation (EM), which can cause fatigue, stress, ++ a weak immune system. The salt lamps work to balance the ions + cleanse the air of powerful EM vibes!
Time to breathe — the negative ions released from Himalayan salt lamps can help keep your airways clean! The ions react with tiny hairs in your windpipe to ensure your lungs are clear of allergen particles. As a form of salt therapy, himalayan salt inhalers [similar to a humidifier // vaporizer] can relieve asthma + allergies with natural ingredients. Salt therapy is also used to treat patients with severe breathing issues, like COPD, asthma, ++ bronchitis!
Himalayan salt lamps can improve your mind + body by boosting your energy levels + increasing the oxygen flow in your blood. The warm pink // orange glow from the lamp can be extremely therapeutic, especially if the lamp is used often + for long periods of time [perfect for when you sleep or study!]. The calming light + released negative ions can reduce anxiety + settle your nerves — similar to color therapy + meditation!
Before purchasing your first Himalayan salt lamp, do your homework, read customer reviews, ++ look into the company to ensure your lamp is the real deal! Legitimate lamps will be extremely fragile with a dim light bulb that emits a subtle glow. Your lamp should not be brightly lit, abnormally colored, or highly durable. Above all, if you do not feel // sense a change after continuous use of the lamp, it may not be real — trust your gut!
