Benefits of Salt Lamps
Besides the beauty of Salt lamps, there are also many benefits which is why I keep so many around my house. Salt lamps are blocks of pure Himalayan salt. Also known as “Vitamins of the Air”, they are made from the salt that came from ancient oceans, and serves as the perfect air ionizer.
Positive air ions are created by electronic devices such as computers, TVs, phones, microwaves, etc. Positive ions are extremely harmful. Salt lamps neutralize these harmful ions. Salt lamps emit negative ions.
The bulb inside the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. The salt lamp attracts then neutralizes all positive ions in the room, including dust, bacteria, and allergens. This reduces allergy and asthma symptoms.
Besides removing contaminants from the air, Himalayan pink salt 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. These eases coughing.
These lamps improve the air quality which is important for better sleep. I like to keep my salt lamp on during the day and before bedtime I turn it off ( I need total darkness to sleep).
Due to their calming colors, they have also been used in color therapy to help disorders and sleeplessness. 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.
I also have salt tea light holders. You can purchase these on amazon, your local healing store or even HomeGoods. If you are in the 845 area, Hands of Serenity on Main St. in Fishkill and Dreaming Goddess in Poughkeepsie has these lamps available for purchase.
