Learn more about Himalayan salt lamp benefits.
Himalayan rock salt lamps are from 250 million-year-old salt crystals located in the Himalayan Mountains region.
Millions of years ago the primal sea was evaporated by the sun. As continents merged, the Himalayan mountains were formed and the evaporated salt crystallized within the mountains.
Himalayan salt is truly one of the most purest substances in the entire world. Free from pollution and containing millions of years of natural energy vibrations waiting to be released.
Himalayan Salt Lamp Benefits
- Improves concentration, allowing you to focus.
- Reduces stress and anxiety
- Promotes rejuvenating sleep
- Soothes migraine headaches
- Neutralizes toxins in air including mold, viruses, and bacteria
- Reduces electro-smog
- Purifies air
- Helps those with allergies by eliminating allergens
- Soothing, warm light that is relaxing to look at
These are just a few of the many beneficial effects. Indeed, it is no coincidence that salt miners are much healthier than coal miners.
Salt lamps are simply chunks of Himalayan pink sea salt that have been mined and then shaped to fit a candle or light bulb.
How Do Himalayan Salt Lamps Work?
When they are heated, they produce negative ions. The hygroscopic properties of salt cause it to attract nearby moisture in the air.
When the salt lamp is heated it causes the attracted water to evaporate. During this evaporation process, negative ions are produced.
Ever sit at the bottom of a waterfall? How about walk outside after a storm or sit at the beach? The relaxing, fresh air feeling is not a coincidence. This is the beneficial effect that negative ions have on human health.
Do Himalayan salt lamps work? There’s no magic or voodoo here – it’s very simple science. In fact, negative ions have been studied for decades and it is thoroughly understood that people thrive when a certain level of negative ions are present.
Ions are molecules that have lost or gained an electron, classified as either negative or positive. They are surrounding you in the air now as you read this, whether you are aware of them or not.
Positive ions are typically molecules of carbon dioxide that have been deprived of an electron. They have an unfavorable effect on your body as they can be absorbed from the air you breath into your bloodstream.
Effects of positive ions include:
-Tiredness, lack of energy
-Stress and anxiety
The effects on your health are disastrous, but the worst news is yet to come. Modern homes are saturated with positive ions and our health suffers because of it. Opening a window may not be enough as tests show that cities also contain alarmingly high levels of positive ions.
Negative ions produced by the salt rock lamps are statically attracted to each other. Once joined, the increased weight causes them to fall to the ground.
A Himalayan pink salt lamp is essentially a chunk of rock salt that has been mined and hollowed out to allow a candle or light bulb to be placed inside.
With increasing air pollution, it has never been more important of a time to invest in clean air. We recommend Himalayan salt lamps to improve the air and consequently the health of you and your family.
It’s believed that Himalayan salt lamp benefits us by exhibiting the three following natural properties:
As salt is hygroscopic, it absorbs nearby moisture in the air when heated. As a chloride (negative ion) combines with the sodium ( positive) they are neutralized and released as a single negative ion into the surrounding air.
This negative ion is statically attracted to positive ions. When they combine, it drags it harmlessly to the ground, thus purifying the air.
This process can be observed if you have a good light source nearby. For example, if you have ever looked through a bright beam of sunlight shining through your window, you may notice particles of dust floating in the air. When negative ions are introduced into the particles, the dust instantly drops to the ground.
It’s well understood that our brain waves oscillate at about 8hz. All life on the planet depends on electromagnetic vibration otherwise known as the Schumann resonance frequency. While you may not realize it, everyone is resonating electromagnetic waves and they project a few feet from your body.
These wavelengths have a direct impact on your health and state of mind. In fact, studies have even shown that our electromagnetic wavelengths interact with those around us.
Electronics generate wavelengths at far higher amounts. For example, a computer monitor generates about 160hz, 20 times more than what our brain is used to.
This constant barrage of unnatural frequency dislodges our natural rhythmic state, causing anxiety, stress, lack of focus, and tiredness. Furthermore, this can cause free radicals to build up in the body which may cause inflammation and disease.
The ancient structure of salt helps mitigate these unnatural frequencies and neutralize nearby electro-smog.
All living beings on earth require light to live. Humans, particularly, thrive on light waves from the rainbow spectrum which is 300 to 700 nanometers ( a way of measuring light waves). Simply put, these light waves are electromagnetic waves that are visible to the human eye (red, blue, green, etc.). We do not have the ability to see colors/light outside of this wavelength.
It has been understood for thousands of years that we respond to colors / light in a positive way. Light is absorbed through our body and provides our cells with energy to thrive. You may know, for example, that the color blue is thought to promote calmness.
Salt lamps provide electromagnetic waves within the frequency we respond to and this produces the inner harmony effect that many users report.
While sounding like something straight out of a sci-fi film, these three natural events have been thoroughly researched and documented in scientific literature.
As air pollution continues to rise it becomes even more important to ensure your family has clean air to breath.
