This is why you should have a salt lamp in every room of your house

You do not know what you are missing if you have never had a Himalayan salt lamp. It is as if you have your window open continuously and a soft glowing natural source of fresh clean air enters your room.

Before we show you the benefits of having a Himalayan salt lamp, we first want to teach you a small chemistry lesson:

An ion is an electrically charged molecule. Ions can be both positive and negative. This is due to lack or surplus of one or more electrons. The atmosphere around the earth is always filled with positive and negative ions.

One of the disadvantages of inhaling the positive ions in the air is that the cilia (microscopic hairs) in the trachea pollute, they become slow and do not work so well to keep the contaminated particles out of our lungs. When the Himalayan pink salt lamp is on, it absorbs the positive ions. This will have a beneficial effect to keep your lungs clean.

Positive ions:

Although the name suggests otherwise, positive ions create everything but positivity in your home. Positive ions mainly arise when using devices such as a microwave, vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, electric toothbrush or air conditioning. These devices cause a change in the air which hinders us during breathing and can cause us to cough or sneeze.

Positive ions can also contribute to stress, difficulty sleeping, migraine and asthma. Fortunately, there are also negative ions which can bring the positive out of balance so that the air becomes clean again.

Negative ions:

Negative ions are created by beautiful natural phenomena. When you hear a waterfall, the breaking sea on the shoreline or a lightning bolt, our body loads and refreshes. Thunderstorms in – for example – a forest creates 10,000 negative ions per square meter, while only 100 negative ions per square meter is created during a thunderstorm in a busy city. This is a bizarre  difference!


1 Salt lamps clean and disinfect the air

This is probably one of the most famous and reasons why a majority of people use a Himalayan salt lamp. The salt lamp has the ability to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke and other unpleasant odors from the air. You will wonder how this is possible, after all it is just an ordinary light bulb.

Himalayan salt lamps purify the air through the power of hygroscopes, they draw water molecules from the environment and absorb them, all foreign particles are drawn into the salt crystal. When the lamp warms up, the water evaporates and it returns to the air and the trapped dust particles, smoke and so on are trapped in the salt.

2 Reduced allergy and asthma symptoms

Because the Himalayan salt lamp draws microscopic particles of dust, pet dander, fungus and other substances from the air, placing a lamp in several rooms in your home can reduce your allergic symptoms.

Even people who suffer from asthma would notice a big difference after a week or two. Himalayan pink salt seems to be good for the airways, there are even inhalers with this as a component.

3 Relieves coughing

When the Himalayan salt lamp begins to warm up, the charge that is released in the air changes. The majority of homes in the Netherlands are filled with positively charged ions, which unfortunately are not particularly good for the health of a person. The positive ions are made by a number of things, but the primary source for most comes from our electronics.

One of the disadvantages of inhaling the positive ions in the air is that the cilia (microscopic hairs) in the trachea pollute, they become slow and do not work so well to keep the contaminated particles out of our lungs. When the Himalayan pink salt lamp is on, it absorbs the positive ions. This will have a beneficial effect to keep your lungs clean.

In a nutshell said: In addition to removing contaminants from the air, the Himalayan salt lamp also helps your body filter through the air efficiently so that no foreign particles are inhaled in your lungs.

4 Increase your energy level

Taking a ride in the countryside with the windows down, spending time on the beach or sitting at a campsite in the mountains are things that are refreshing for people. Even taking the shower is something that gives you energy. It is no coincidence that these are all activities that expose us to increased concentrations of negative ions. These negative ions are also generated in the Himalayan salt lamp. The fact is that positive ions deplete our bodies.


5 Neutralize electromagnetic radiation

Today, most of us live in a metaphorical ocean of electromagnetic radiation emanating from our electronics (television, computer, mobile phone, tablet, devices, etc). While it is invisible, the long-term effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation can be serious. Constant exposure to these radiations cause stress, chronic fatigue.

The Himalayan salt lamp helps to neutralize the negative ions, so in addition to all your electrical appliances you also have a Himalayan salt lamp in house to reduce the potential danger of electromagnetic radiation.

6 Better sleep

Another side effect that results from excessive exposure to positive ions in the air is your sleep loss. This happens because positively charged particles reduce blood and oxygen to the brain, so you will sleep irregularly. The Himalayan salt lamps are natural negative ions that can help reverse this problem. Therefore try to place 1 lamp in your bedroom so that the air quality improves.

Do not forget that the lamp gives light. So if you cannot sleep when your room is not completely dark, let the lamp do the work before bedtime.


7 Improve your mood and concentration

Himalayan pink salt lamps are a great way to naturally improve your mood or help you relax and unwind at the end of the day. The lamps also provide concentration.

This is due to the negative ions that the lamps send to the body, it improves blood and oxygen uptake to the brain and other organs. This makes kerosene a substance that literally makes you feel happy.

8 Treat winter depression

Because the Himalayan salt lamp generates negative ions, the mood and energy will improve. The natural light emitted by the lamp can help with winter depressions.

This time you can stop the winter depression as the days get shorter, just set a number of Himalayan salt lamps and connect them to timers, so you can get the maximum out of it.

9 Reduce static electricity in the air

Although in the first instance this does not look like a health benefit, it is annoying if you are in a static environment. Static causes stress, shame and frustration. Static have happened when you least expect it, if you touch the door handle, want to pet the dog or cat, kiss your husband or wife before bedtime and you name it.

A bad hair day if you are static is not inevitable, even attaching a sock to your sweater happens sometimes without you knowing it. Static electricity can hurt tremendously and the Himalayan pink salt lamps can neutralize the ionized particles.

10 Environmentally friendly Light source

The last advantage is also one of the most important, I personally think, the lamp is environmentally friendly. The lamp is generally cut from a durable type of wood such as neem.

Some lamps use a low wattage lamp that uses very little energy, while other lamps are powered by a burning candle. If this information was useful to you, don’t forget to share this article with your friends
