10 Reasons To Have A Himalayan Salt Lamp In Every Room Of Your Home
What are Himalayan Pink Salt (HPS) Lamps?
Himalayan Salt lamps are simply large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. They can be solid pieces of salt decorative baskets filled with large crystals of salt. Himalayan pink salt lamps are made from pure, food grade, himalayan salt crystals and can even be powdered to use as salt in recipes if needed.
The importance of negative ions…
Himalayan Pink Salt lamps are natural negative ion generators. At any given time, there are both positive and negative ions in the air. Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or at the beach.
Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air.
The unique combination of salt and a light source in salt lamps are what cause the negative ions. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it attracts water to its surface and this water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source (this is also why salt lamps tend to sweat and appear wet in humid climates). The negative ions are generated during the evaporation process.
Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.
Benefits for having Himalayan Pink Salt (HPS) Lamp in your home and in the office:
1. HPS Lamp cleanses and deodorizes the Air by removing dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants from the air.
2. HPS Lanm reduce allergy and asthma symptoms, since HPS lamps remove microscopic particles of dust, pet dander, mold, mildew and the like from the surrounding air, placing a lamp or two in the rooms where you spend the most time can seriously cut back on allergy and asthma symptoms.
3. Eases Coughing: HPS lamps also help your body to filter air more efficiently so any foreign particles you do happen to breathe won’t make it into your lungs.
4. Increase Energy Levels: If you constantly feel tired and don’t know why, try keeping a Himalayan salt lamp in the room or rooms where you spend the most time. After about a week, you should notice a difference.
5. Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation All kinds of electronic instruments releases positive ions, called electromagnetic radiations, into the air, Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, keep one next to the computer, television, and any other electrical devices.
6. Better Sleep Another side effect which results from over-exposure to positive ions in the air is that it robs you of quality sleep. This happens because those positively-charged particles can actually reduce blood and oxygen supply to the brain resulting in irregular sleep patterns. Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, thus they can help to reverse this problem. Therefore, keep one or two around your bedroom to improve the air quality so you can get a better night’s sleep.
7. Improve Mood & Concentration Himalayan pink salt lamps are a great way to naturally enhance your mood or to help you relax and unwind at the end of the day. Again, this is due to the effect of the negative ions on your body, improving blood and oxygen supply to the brain and other organs, as well as providing a boost of serotonin – the neurotransmitter which makes us (literally) feel happy.
8. Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder In addition to generating negative ions which improve mood and energy levels, the soft, natural light given off by a Himalayan pink salt lamp is close enough to the warm glow of sunshine that they can even be used to relieve the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.
9. Reduce Static Electricity in the Air Static current zaps you when you least expect it, such as reaching for a door handle, touching your loved ones or wearing cloths etc. This static electricity can be a huge pain and Himalayan pink salt lamps are a natural way to neutralize the airborne ionized particles which cause it.
Where to Place Your Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp ?
1. Smaller lamps (like this 5.4 lb) are good for the average bedroom,
2. Larger lamps (like this 12 lb) are better for spaces like the living room or den.
3. On average, calculate that 1 lb of HPS crystal will cleanse the air in approximately a 4′ x 4′ area.
4. If you can’t find a large enough lamp for any given room, remember that you can use multiple lamps spread out around the space for the same effect.
5. We highly recommend building a whole-home collection of these beautiful lights even if you only buy one or two at a time.
Facts to keep in mind:
Himalayan pink salt crystals will begin to melt with prolonged exposure to high humidity. For this reason, use caution and keep a close watch on any HPS lamps positioned near sources of steam such as dishwashers, laundry machines, or showers.
Also, as previously mentioned, results of negative ion generation may take about a week to be noticeable, so don’t give up if you don’t feel the improvement right away.
