Experience revitalizing effects similar to a thunderstorm, ocean or waterfall in your home with a Himalayan rock salt lamp. These beautiful lamps not only provide a warm glowing ambience but also emit negative ions to simulate air purification and energy rejuvenation just as in nature.
Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp – the Natural Indoor Air Purifier
Hand mined from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, these natural lamps are carved from bio-energetic crystal salt created over millions of years ago from dried up ocean waters. A carefully inserted light source will gently heat up the salt causing the emission of negative ions into the atmosphere. Common pollutants floating in the air such as dust particles are positively charged and these become attached to the negative ions generated by the Himalayan salt lamps. A heavy neutral particle is formed which drops to the floor, thus removing it from the air we breathe through a natural air purification process.
Due to their air purifying properties, Himalayan crystal salt lamps are renowned as natural healing therapy. In particular, many users find that common respiratory complaints such as asthma, as well as allergies become less problematic. In fact healing of inflammation and improving respiratory health through dry salt therapy, known as speleo or halo therapy, has been around since the 1800s. It was discovered by a Polish physician who found that respiratory conditions can be healed by breathing pure, ionized air in salt mines.
Himalayan salt lamps are very effective when placed anywhere in the home or office, but generally the larger the space, the larger the lamp should be or a greater number of lamps should be scattered around. Similarly to placing a plant inside to generate some natural energy, the lamps are fantastic for combating dismal electromagnetic energy generated by computers and televisions. The natural healing therapy of crystal salt lamps is also attributed to boosting energy and promoting restful sleep which makes sense given that our bodies heal overnight.
Choosing Your Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps
There are many distributors of these beautiful lamps so you won’t be stuck for choice. Some important points to consider when shopping for a Himalayan rock salt lamp include:
- Ensure the distributor sources the lamps from a quality fair trade supplier in the Himalayan region as it is not unknown for workers to endure poor conditions for this tough manual job as well as utilizing poor quality salt.
- The lamps should be firmly attached to a base for stability and include a UL tested cord for safety.
- Shape – the less the salt is chiseled, the more natural looking the lamp.
- Size – it will be noted when you buy the lamp the approximate area in which it will be effective, but remember you may want to consider larger or several smaller Himalayan salt lamps for larger spaces.
