The Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

Himalayan salt lamps have been increasing in popularity lately, and for good reason. The pretty pink chucks of salt fitted with lamps on the inside make lovely additions to any decor, but they also provide amazing health benefits. They are called the “vitamins of the air”.

The way they work is by emitting negative ions, which cancel out harmful positive ions. Positive ions are created by electronic devices and radiation from electronic fields such as WiFi or cellphone networks. Positive ions can exacerbate issues such as allergies, insomnia and stress.

Himalayan sea salt is the purest sea salt on earth. It contains all the elements that naturally occur in our bodies. The way the ion process works is that the salt, like all salt, naturally attracts water. When the heat from the light bulb causes the salt to warm up, the water begins to evaporate, being diffused into the air. The negative ions get released this way, and they bond with the positive ions. You know those cheesy animations in Febreeze commercials that show the happy little Fabreeze bubbles capturing and eliminating ugly odors? That’s how the negative ions bust up the nasty, harmful positive ions that mess with our sleep patterns and other bodily systems.

The health benefits are many, including:

  • Increasing blood flow and circulation
  • Boosting serotonin levels
  • Reducing symptoms of asthma
  • Improved lung capacity
  • Improved mood
  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced symptoms of allergies
  • Better sleep
  • Increased energy levels
  • Reduced headaches

Not all salt lamps are created equal though, so when you’re shopping for one, make sure it is pure, food-grade Himalayan salt. There are cheaper imitations on the market right now, and you simply won’t get the health benefits from anything less than the good stuff.

Himalayan salt is also great on food and a much healthier alternative to standard table salt. Full of minerals and nutrients, it’s also totally delicious! They even make Himalayan salt licks for horses and dogs.
