The Benefits of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lamps

The Benefits of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt LampsHimalayan pink sea salt lamps are the essence of beneficial simplicity. These lamps are really just huge chunks of Himalayan pink salt fitted with a lighting fixture. But they're so much more than that. Not only are they edible, able to be broken down and consumed as mineral-dense salt, they also purify indoor air by releasing negative ions when in use.

It's well established that indoor air is some of the most polluted, and it's where we spend 90% of our time.

According to the EPA, indoor air pollutants are two to five times more toxic than outdoor pollutants, and in some cases, the indoor air has been found to be 100 times more polluted.

Himalayan salt lamps also work as mini humidifiers because salt is naturally hygroscopic. It attracts and holds water on its surface which is then heated by the light bulb and evaporated into the air whereby negative ions are freely generated.

When negative ions are created, they automatically circulate throughout the room attaching themselves to positive ions and neutralizing them.

Positive ions can be harmful to our health and are found in airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens, and are also released from electronics when in operation. Positive ions themselves can cause decreased lung efficiency and circulation, brain fog, fatigue and general illness.

Benefits of Negative Ions

  • Freshen and deodorize indoor air
  • Remove airborne germs and contaminants
  • Promote better sleep
  • Reduce microscopic allergens like dust, pet dander, mold and mildew
  • Increase blood flow and oxygen supply throughout the body

It's ideal to have one salt lamp in every room, but even just one in the room you spend the most time in can dramatically increase indoor air quality and overall well being.

You can also select the size of lamp for optimal performance. A smaller 6-8″ salt lamp would work well in the bedroom, and a larger size would be better suited for the living room.

NOTE: Be careful to choose salt lamps made from authentic Himalayan pink sea salt (sometimes called Himalayan salt crystals). There are many imitators out there selling pink-colored rock salt instead of the real deal.

    I’m so intrigued by this – I just might have to get one! We have a salt cave near us but I haven’t tried it yet.

    How are we supposed to tell the difference between genuine Himalayan pink salt and fake pink rock salt? If a vendor is selling the fake one, I hardly think they’re going to tell anyone it’s not the real thing.

      That’s a good question BettB, and the only thing we can do as consumers is to buy from trustworthy companies that have a excellent track record. We can’t just assume that something you find on Amazon is authentic unless it’s made by a reputable company.

        And one would know a company is reputable by . . .

          Vet the company the way you would when investing in something more expensive. Talk to them, see what they know about their products, find out if they manufacture them or if they’re just ordering from Alibaba in China and importing it without overseeing the manufacturing process. Read reviews from real customers. Stalk their social media profiles to see if they’re experts in what they’re selling. That’s how we do it anyway, because it’s important for our health.
