Have you been thinking about getting a salt lamp, but want to know more about them first? There are many benefts to owning an Himalayan Salt Lamp. Which can basically be separated into 3 distinct areas: Breathing/Allergies, Stress/Sleep, and Negative Ions.

What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp? 

Salt Lamps, or Himalayan Pink Salt (HPS) Lamps are large blocks of salt that are mined from the Himalayan mountain's salt mines. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and have numerous health benefits attributed to them. 

 

How do Salt Lamps work?

Salt is naturally hygroscopic. This means that it absorbs the moisture from the surrounding air, trapping dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne allergens within the salt. It then evaporates clean moisturized air into the environment. It does have a max capacity, which causes the salt to sweat without a light source. Each lamp comes with a heat producing light source (either flame or bulb) which dries the salt and encourages the evaporation of collected moisture. It is the process of evaporation that produces the beneficial negative ions that salt lamps are often known for.

What are negative ions?

First lets talk about ions and electromagnetic fields. All of our electronics and electrical devices have an electromagnetic field around them, emitting positive ions and free radicals which contribute to static in the home and stress, insomnia and anxiety, among other things. We are constantly bombarded by these positive ions which has been linked to many health problems. Negative ions are beneficial as they neutralize the positive ions so that the effect of them is less. Negative ions are produced in nature during lightning storms, near waterfalls, and within forests. This is why people feel better in these places. You can read more about negative and positive ions here

Colour Therapy

Salt Lamps emit a pleasing pink/orange glow. This colour is very uplifting and is known to enhance feelings of calmness and focus. Salt Lamps do not emit blue wave light which is what is emitted from televison and computer screens. This is beneficial as it doesn't affect the body's ability to produce Melatonin, which is one of the ways our body regulates sleep.

Allergies, Asthma and Breathing?

The airways in humans are covered in very tiny hairs called cilia. When people live in industrialized environments, with sealed windows and air conditioning,  this causes the cilia to become fatigued and they aren't able to work as well. This is detrimental to people because cilia are there to help filter out airborne pathogens, dust, pet dander, and other allergens. The cilia trigger the cough reflex to keep these things from getting to our lungs. Himalayan Salt is so beneficial for the lungs that there are even special Himalayan Salt Inhalers
