A Himalayan salt lamp, just like a campfire, has an ambient warm glow with relaxing and soothing effects. Despite its soothing red glow, the salt tends to keep the air fresh. Due to their benefits that have been proven by various studies, the salt lamps have grown in popularity amongst users.
Also known as Himalayan Pink Salt (HPS), the salt lamps are large with small bulbs inside. Available as salt-crystals-filled decorative baskets or solid salt pieces, the lamps are both attractive and functional. When the lamps are lit indoors, they provide warm glow and purify air.
They are made from pure, food-grade salt crystals sourced from the Himalayan Mountains.
Unlike table salt that only contains sodium chloride, HSL contain potassium, magnesium, zinc and 98% sodium chloride. Due to the content of trace minerals in the salt, it has a light pink to dark orange or pink hue. Here are three ways a Himalayan salt lamp can help your overall wellness:
Top 3 Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps to Your General Health
Traditional Salt Therapy
Although salt crystal deposits in the Himalayan Mountains were discovered only 2000 years ago, they’re as old as 200 million years. The translucent salt crystals emit negative ions when the lamp is lit. The ions refresh air for improved quality while giving a warm glow. According to various studies, a lit salt lamp can emit up to 600% negative ion count.
The many salt spas in Europe exploit the benefits of the Himalayan salts to offer salt therapy. Some of the spas were established back in the mid 1800s, indicating the true benefit of salt therapy. The ancient form of therapy is increasingly growing in popularity in other parts of the globe, including the U.S.
Prevents Loss of Melatonin and Neutralizes EMF Radiation
According to various clinical studies, reduced melatonin levels in the body lead to growth of cancerous cells. EMF radiations from TVs, PCs, mobile phones, tablets, microwaves, laptops, cordless phones, etc., lower melatonin levels in the body. Lethargy, insomnia, irritability, headaches and extreme fatigue during the day are some signs of low melatonin levels in the body.
Melatonin supplements can help increase melatonin levels in the body. It’s important for cancer patients to reduce the impact of EMF radiation from electrical appliances, both in the office and at home. New laptops come with EMF radiation shield pads while cell phones are built with anti-radiation cases for protection.
Himalayan crystal salt lamps can also help neutralize EMF radiation from electronic devices. They emit natural negative ions that ionize the immediate atmosphere, neutralizing the harmful radiation from appliances and gadgets. The ions also react with your bio-energetic field as the crystals warm up from the heat generated by the lamps.
The ionic Himalayan salt crystal lamps are aesthetic and have relaxing and calming effects due to their glowing orange hues. If used as a lamp at night, the salt can help you become more creative by reducing stress levels. According to recent studies, the salt can also neutralize negative EMF electromagnetic fields generated by wireless devices.
Himalayan salt lamps are both functional and decorative. They can help neutralize negative ions in the air such as EMF radiation produced by electronic gadgets. The lamps can also help reduce stress and calm the mind. With these benefits, you’re bound to enjoy improved general wellness.
