Himalayan Salt Lamps
For those of us who love crystals and stones and strongly believe in the characteristics they carry and the benefits they diffuse, we find it absolutely necessary to surround ourselves by the natural and positive energies that they give off. A particularly special and highly beneficial chunk of stone to have in your household is a Himalayan Salt Lamp - a large solid piece of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside. Take a look at just a couple of the benefits:
Cleanse & Deodorize the Air
The salt lamps purify the air by attracting and absorbing water molecules from the surrounding environment. As the lamp warms up by the heat produced by the light bulb inside, the water evaporates back into the air leaving the trapped particles of pollen, dust, smoke and any other foreign particles, locked in the salt. By cleansing the air, ultimately the salt lamp is able to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms. Due to the lamp removing microscopic particles, the result can be a cut back on those allergy symptoms - dust, pet dander, mildew, and mold all significantly lose their presence. Besides removing contaminants from the air, the lamp helps your body to filter air much more efficiently.
Increase Energy Levels
Salt lamps are natural negative ion generators. Negative ions occur in nature, therefore activities that expose us to increased concentrations of negative ions generally increase our energy levels in the same manner that the salt lamp does. Positive ions do the opposite and sap our bodes of energy - they are created by electronic devices such as computers, TVs, microwaves etc. By surrounding yourself with natural negative ions such as those generated by a salt lamp, you will notice a significant increase in your energy levels. It's science really.
With an array of different unique ways to purify your air, salt lamps are a natural and effective alternative - and of course, they make pretty decor with their raw stone charm that we've grown to love.
