Salt lamps are one of those things that you didn't realise you needed until you owned one. If you've been thinking about purchasing one but you're just 'not sure' - give it a go! You don't know what you're missing!
Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps are not only gorgeous to look at and instantly create a calming ambiance to the space - there are many health benefits associated with their use. From the moment I get home each day to the moment I go to bed, the salt lamp in our living room is on! We have them in many rooms of our home but the two which are used the most are those in the living area and bedroom.
Firstly, Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps are known to cleanse and deodorise the air. They have an incredible ability to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, pet dander and other contaminants from the air inside our home. When I first learned how they do this, it was somewhat confusing, so i'll try to explain as best I can....
Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps purify the air by attracting water molecules which they then absorb. Water and electricity you ask? Well, this is what happens... The water molecules together with any foreign particles they may be carrying are trapped into the salt and as the lamp warms up, the same water then evaporates back into the air, leaving behind the foreign particles!
There's no need to worry, your lamp will not be dripping in water* as the process happens almost instantly!
Directly related to the first point comes the next one... Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps can reduce allergy and asthma symptoms as well as coughing.
From the process described above, we know how foreign particles become trapped in the salt which assists to purify the air and alleviates the symptoms of allergies and asthma.
In as little as 7 days, allergy and asthma sufferers should notice a significant change after placing a lamp or two in the rooms where the most amount of time is spent.
By removing contaminants from the air, Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps will help your body to filter the air more efficiently so any foreign particles which do inhale won’t make it into your lungs.
One of the things I love most about Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps are their ability to neutralise electromagnetic radiation.
In today's day and age, most of us are swimming in a sea of electromagnetic radiation which flows from our electronic devices (think mobile phones, tablets, computers, laptops, TV's and the list goes on).
Although these rays are invisible, they are continuously surrounding us and the long-term effects can be both significant and serious.
Studies have shown that constant exposure to electromagnetic radiation has been directly linked with chronic fatigue and increased stress levels, as well as a decrease in the human body's immune response.
To reduce the potential danger to you and your family, keep your salt lamp close by, particularly in areas where there are electrical devices which you use frequently.
If you need any further reason to go and get yourself a Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp, this may be it - improved sleep!
The electromagnetic rays that we discussed a moment ago means there are positive ions in the atmosphere and these (unlike negative ions) have harmful effects on our health.
When our cells are in balance, they are mostly negatively charged and this allows for our body to transmit electrical signals between our brain and nerves in order for our bodies to function properly. The high frequency electromagnetic radiation causes our cells to have an increase in positive charge which not only disrupts the cells balance, but it can also rob you of quality sleep.
Your Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp will act as a neutral negative ion generator and by improving the air quality, will improve your chances of a better night's sleep. Even your pets will love it!
If you're looking to Improve your mood and concentration levels - look no further. Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps are a fantastic (and completely natural) way to enhance your mood or to aid in rest and relaxation. With a natural calming effect, their golden glow has an instant emotive response to help you relax and unwind.
It may sound contradictory, however these beauties are also fabulous for improving concentration levels. This is due to the effect of your body being negatively charged which will improve blood and oxygen supply to your brain and organs. It will also provide a boost of natural serotonin which is our body chemical responsible for making us feel happy!
So there you have it - just some of the associated health benefits with Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps!
No matter where you place your lamp, the satisfaction, enjoyment, advantages and comfort will be second to none.
*If you do live in a humid climate, it is best to place your lamp under a saucer or something similar as droplets of water may form on your lamp.
Love & Light
