Salt Lamp Cleanses & Deodorizes the Air Himalayan salt lamps warm up from the heat produced by the light bulbs inside; they have the incredible power to trap particles of smoke, pollen, dust, etc., like a natural air purifier. It purifies the air through the power of hygroscopic, which means they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment and then absorbs the molecules and any foreign particles that may be carried into the salt crystal.
Heating the Himalayan Salt lamp will begin the hygroscopic cycling of the airborne particles and change the charges of the released molecules. Most homes are filled up with positively charged ions created by several things, but the primary source for most of us is electronics. One of those health detriments of breathing the positive ions in the air is that the cilia line in the trachea becomes sluggish and doesn’t work well to keep contaminants out of the lungs.
As the salt rock lamp absorbs particles and water from the air, it also takes positive ions. Then while the heated salt releases the cleansed water vapor back into the air, this also expels negative ions, which have the opposite impact on the airways. This will increase the cilial activity to keep the lungs clear. Himalayan pink salt lamps also help the body filter air more efficiently so that any foreign particles you breathe will not make it into the lungs.
Reduce Allergy & Asthma Symptoms
Himalayan salt lamps remove the microscope particles of dust, mold, mildew, from the surrounding air; placing the lamp or two in the rooms where you spend most of the time can reduce allergy symptoms. Even people with asthma should notice a big difference after a week or two.
Improve Mood & Concentration
Himalayan salt lamps can be a great way to enhance the mood naturally or to help you relax and unwind by the end of the day. At times HPS lamps are best for improving concentration. Again, it is due to the negative ions’ effect on the body, improving blood and oxygen supply to the brain and other organs and boosting serotonin the neurotransmitter that makes us feel happy.
Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Additionally, generating the negative ions improves mood and energy levels; the Himalayan pink Salt lamp gives off soft, natural light. It is close enough to the warm glow of sunshine that this can even be used to relieve the symptoms of seasonal Affective Disorder. This year while the days get shorter, you know how to deal with lethargy. Surround yourself with a few HPS lamps set on timers.
Environmentally-friendly Light Source
Himalayan Salt lamps are environmentally friendly. Generally, the base of the Himalayan Pink Salt lamp has been carved from a sustainable wood such as neem or mango wood. Most salt-lamps use a low-wattage bulb that consumes very little energy.
Over-exposure to the positive ions in the air robs sleep quality. This happens because those positively charged particles can naturally reduce blood and oxygen supply, resulting in irregular sleep patterns. Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, which can help to reverse the problem. Keep one or two around the bedroom to improve the air quality so you can sleep better at night.
Neutralize the Electromagnetic Radiation
Constant exposure to electromagnetic radiation can increase stress, cause chronic fatigue, and decrease the body’s immune response. As that emits negative ions into the air, Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize electromagnetic radiation. Keep one next to your television, computer, or any other electrical device you frequently used to reduce the potential danger to you and the family.
Increase Energy Levels
If you constantly feel fatigued, try a Himalayan salt lamp in rooms where you spend most of the time. After about a week, you may notice a difference in your energy levels.
