Although many people think that Himalayan salt lamps are nothing more than a gimmick or a fancy gadget to add to your home or office décor, this is not the case.
These clever little devices are not only able to improve the overall ambience of the room they are in; they have a surprising number of health benefits attached to them as well.
Reduce Respiratory and Allergy Symptoms
When these lamps are placed in and around the home and working spaces, they have the ability to remove microscopic pet dander and dust particles from the air, as well as mold and mildew spores. As a result, anyone who suffers from allergies will benefit tremendously by using at least one Himalayan salt lamp in each room of the home. In many cases, even asthma sufferers have reported that their symptoms have all but diminished after being exposed to them for extended periods of time.
Boost Energy Levels
Dealing with immense levels of stress each day means that most people are being exposed to high levels of positive ions. These ions are responsible for making a person feel lethargic and in many cases; they can cause an array of other health-related symptoms as well. Anyone who feels constantly tired – even after getting a decent night’s rest – will be able to benefit tremendously when being exposed to Himalayan salt lamps. These devices are known to increase the level of much-needed negative ions in virtually any environment, which will help boost energy levels.
Neutralize Electromagnetic Radiation
These days, most of the population is exposed to varying degrees of electromagnetic radiation. This can be from smartphones, Wi-Fi networks, computers, TVs, appliances and numerous other electronic items. Although EMF rays are invisible, they can increase stress levels, compromise the immune system and even lead to the development of chronic fatigue syndrome. Placing these lamps next to TVs, computers, Wi-Fi routers and other electronics not only neutralize as many positive ions as possible; they will help reduce the possibility of developing chronic health conditions along the way.
PERFECT STARTED SALT LAMP
This Hand-Carved Lamp Provides a Soft Glow – This lamp is made from salt crystals from the Himalayan Mountains. Unlit, the crystal’s rough-hewn, irregular surface looks pink. When lit with the included 15-watt bulb, it gives a warm amber glow. You can even change the color of the bulb to give a different hue to the lighting area.
Use the lamp as a gentle nightlight, or to create a romantic mood. Whether in a child’s room, near the television or computer, or in your office, the lamp, sitting on its round neem base, provides a natural touch.
The lit salt crystal clears the air naturally of allergens like smoke, pet dander, pollens, and other air pollutants. It dilutes odors so that you can breathe easier. People with asthma often find it helpful in reducing their symptoms. You can keep the lamp lit for as long as you like to maintain this purifying effect.
Improve Your Sleep Quality
Being exposed to an over-abundance of negative ions also has a negative effect on a person’s quality of sleep because they have the ability to reduce oxygen and blood supply to the brain. Placing one to two of these lamps in bedrooms will help improve the air quality in them by producing essential negative ions, which will in turn provide a better night’s rest. If you need to sleep in a room that is completely dark, these lamps can be turned off at night and then reactivated in the morning – just be sure to place each lamp in a saucer first, as they may weep a little after being turned off.
Boost Concentration Levels
Research has shown that Himalayan salt lamps have the ability to enhance mood and improve concentration levels as well. This is because of their ability to improve blood and oxygen flow throughout the body – while also encouraging the production of serotonin. As a result, they can make great additions for kids’ bedrooms or other areas of the home where homework and studies take place on a regular basis.
Ward off Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
During the winter months, sunlight levels are at their absolute lowest. This causes many people to experience feelings of depression, listlessness and lethargy. However, placing a few salt lamps in and around the home or office can help prevent this because of the soft, natural light that they give off – all year round.
Choose your Lamp Carefully
Before purchasing your salt lamp(s), it’s important to choose the darkest shades of pink and orange possible. Those that are very light in color and/or that contain black deposits will not be as effective at purifying the air around you as the darker lamps because they have been mined from lower quality sale veins.Indus Classic Set of 2 Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps, 5-7 lbs., 7 in.
Size is Important
The bigger a Himalayan salt lamp is, the more effective it will be in purifying the air and environment around you. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to go out and purchase the largest one you can find. Lamps that are being used at your work desk should be approximately 5 lbs. in weight, while those for bedrooms and other areas up to 10 sq. ft. in size will need to be a little bigger. Areas that are larger can benefit from multiple smaller lamps or a larger unit being used.
When using salt lamps, it is essential that you insert the correct globes into them – energy savers will not generate enough heat to allow the lamp to produce the negative ions that are beneficial to your health. After placing these units around your home and work space, you will be able to look forward to enjoying an improved quality of health overall.
