Himalayan salt lamps are pink salt crystals that come from the Himalayan Mountains — the only place you can find authentic Himalayan salt. People use Himalayan salt crystals for a number of reasons, most notably their ability to promote relaxation through their release of negative salt ions when heated up. Here are just a few of the benefits Himalayan salt lamps provide.
Top 5 Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps
- Purifies the air – Salt lamps help remove various contaminants, like dust or pollen, from the air by attracting and absorbing them.
- Eases allergy and asthma symptoms – By purifying the air, these salt lamps help provide relief for people with respiratory problems.
- Reduces stress – Many people have said that when negative ions released by salt lamps enter the bloodstream, they “produce biochemical reactions that increase serotonin” (Winskowski, 2019). This helps reduce stress as a result.
- Improves sleep – Did you know positive ions can actually reduce blood and oxygen supply to the brain and lead to irregular sleep patterns? Negative ions help improve sleep by counteracting this effect.
- Reduces electromagnetic radiation – Electronics, such as smartphones and TVs, leave behind traces of electromagnetic radiation which can lead to fatigue, stress and even a weakened immune system. Salt lamps help counteract this effect by releasing negative ions and neutralizing this form of radiation.
