8 Amazing Benefits Of Himalayan Salt Lamps
Everywhere I turn it seems there are Himalayan salt lamps being sold. Their popularity is rising not just because they're beautiful, but they have health benefits as well.
Himalayan salt lamps are exactly what they sound like they are: chunks for Himalayan salt with a small bulb, usually LED, inside. The salt crystals combining with the light source produce negative ions, which neutralize positive ions in the air. Positive ions often carry mold, bacteria and allergens through the air. So the result is a cleansing effect on the air in the room.
Note: The allergens simply fall to the ground, so vacuum frequently with a HEPA-filtered vacuum.
So where do these positive ions come from? Positive ions are emitted by electronic equipment in your home, like televisions, computers, and smart phones. The result is an increase in allergies, stress, and insomnia. The salt lamp cancels out these ions. There are 8 things you should notice after you plug one in.
1. You sleep better.
2. You have fewer allergies.
3. Some mental disorders may calm.
4. You'll have fewer breathing troubles.
5. You'll see fewer headaches.
6. Rheumatism can be partially relieved.
7. Vascular disorders are somewhat relieved.
8. Skin problems can be relieved as well.
Ideally, these salt lamps should be placed in each room. Place them somewhat close to electronic devices and leave them on. Using LED-lit salt lamps reduces the amount of energy they use, so you'll notice almost no difference on your electric bill.
