What Exactly are Himalayan Salt Lamps?
A Real Pure Himalayan Salt Lamp, is made from a chunk of Pure Himalayan Salt Crystal that has been mined from deep within the Himalayan Mountains. It was found that Miners who worked deep below the earth’s surface in the Himalayan Salt Mines rarely suffered from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments.
Numerous Studies found that this was because the Miners of Himalayan Salt spend their days in an environment saturated with negative ions, which Himalayan Salt naturally releases.
The air we breathe every day is filled with negative and positive ions and, in order to maintain a healthy living atmosphere, these negative and positive ions must be in balance.
Unfortunately, many of the indoor conveniences of modern life, such as our electronic devices, heating and cooling systems as well as other general indoor pollutants, produce an abundance of positive ions which throw the air we breathe completely out of balance. That, in turn, can contribute to the development of allergies, asthma, stress, insomnia and other sleep disorders, sinus and migraine headaches, and a host of other health problems for many individuals.
Salt Lamps made from Pure Himalayan Salt, as the world’s foremost natural air ionizer and purifier, serves as a corrective balance against the flood of toxins that often permeates the indoor air we breathe.
Himalayan Salt Lamps producing negative ions have been shown to assist in reducing common indoor pollutants such as dust and mildew, as well as countering the effects of electromagnetic fields from electronic devices.
Salt Lamps that utilize negative ion-generating Himalayan Salt Crystals in your home, office, or anywhere else you spend time in your daily life, can help alleviate symptoms from many allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions.
Many Baby Boomers have found that placing several salt lamps in a particular room or space where they spend time lends an even greater benefit, both in terms of physical health and mood enhancement.
Many Health Practitioners, from massage therapists to yoga and fitness instructors, have found that utilizing Himalayan Salt Lamps in their studios provides a calming and relaxing influence on their clients.
In addition, Himalayan Salt Lamps are aesthetically pleasing and can range in size from 3 pounds to 60 pounds, or more. They can be fashioned into just about any desirable size, shape and design, including; a globe, pyramid, cylinder, rectangle, egg, tear drop, flame, heart, bamboo, shell, and clam shapes as well as many natural Salt Crystal shapes.
The Salt Lamp is drilled out at the center of the base underneath the lamp, to provide a space for a light bulb. Adding light and heat from inside a Himalayan Salt Lamp warms the salt from within and facilitates the release of negative ions into the atmosphere.
