If you stay up to date on the latest natural health trends, you’ll notice that everyone is talking about himalayan salt lamps. They have been shown to provide several benefits to those who use them in their homes. We know what you’re thinking: but if they’re just a big slab of salt, how do they provide health benefits?
The answer is simple: negative ions. Pink himalayan salt lamps emit small amounts of negative ions, which contribute to a number of health benefits. Negative ions neutralize positive ions, which are associated with electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is heavily linked to allergies, sleep problems, and stress and created by electronics, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners. Negative ions are found most in nature, created by things like rain storms, ocean waves, and waterfalls. This is said to be one of the reasons many people feel refreshed by the ocean, or going outside after a thunderstorm. They increase oxygen flow to the brain, and therefore increase alertness and mental energy; like a big glass of water for your brain.
Here’s what himalayan salt lamps do for you.
1. Help Purify The Air:
Himalayan salt lamps attract water molecules. This is called being hygroscopic. The water vapor that a salt lamp attracts, typically contains indoor air pollutants (bacteria, mold, and allergens). When the lamp attracts these water molecules, the pollutants get themselves trapped within the salt, and clean water vapor is released back into the air, therefore purifying the water vapor that’s in the air. This air purification has been known to promote breathing, and to help those suffering from asthma.
2. Reduce Stress:
Salt lamps create a soothing environment. With their warm, gentle pink and orange glow, they create an environment that is comfortable and relaxing. Soft orange hues have been proven to calm mood and increase focus. Your stress level and overall health is tied to the environment where you spend the majority of your time, so it’s important to make sure your environment is promoting your best health. Himalayan salt lamps are a great way to do that. Check out our collection here!
3. Help You Sleep:
Salt lamps naturally help you sleep, by helping you relax. Working as a natural night-light, himalayan salt lamps’ warm color is not damaging to the eyes, and has been known to promote relaxation and a soothing atmosphere. Research has shown blue light is harmful to your eyes, as well as disruptive to your circadian rhythm. Most of the electronic devices that we look at for most of the day, especially before bed, (phones, TVs, tablets, etc.) emit a great deal of blue light. No wonder so many of us are struggling with stress and lack of sleep! The negative ions that are emitted by your himalayan salt lamp produce biochemical reactions once they’ve entered your bloodstream. These reactions increase your body’s serotonin levels, reducing stress and boosting your mood and energy.
