Himalayan salt lamps are made from pieces of salt crystals. They serve as beautiful interior decorations and act as natural sources of light. Not only that, Himalayan salt lamp when heated, emits vapor and negative ions. The negative ions were proven to attract pollutants, airborne particles, and positive ions generated by electromagnetic fields emanating from electric devices to the salt lamp, purifying the air and creating a feel-good atmosphere.
Negative ions can ideally be found in fresh air in the mountains or following a thunderstorm, creating a sanitary atmosphere due to the increase of negatively charged oxygen in the air.
1. Better sleep
The positively-charged particles in the air have the ability to reduce the supply of oxygen and blood to your brain and over-exposure to these positive ions might rob you of your quality sleep, causing irregular sleep patterns.
The use of Himalayan salt lamps helps to reverse this issue since the salt crystals are natural negative ion generators. Keeping one in every room improves the quality of air, allowing you to sleep better at night.
2. Balances EM
Everyday appliances such as televisions, cell phones, computers and tablets release positive ions into the air constantly. These and other common electronics can cause an overflow of electromagnetic radiation (EM), which, although invisible, is believed to cause some serious long-term effects. Constant exposure to EM radiation is known primarily to cause fatigue, increase stress and weaken the immune system. Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions and cancel out positive ones. Therefore, by neutralizing electromagnetic radiation, they help reduce artificial frequencies and even prevent static buildup.
3. Natural & Eco friendly
In this day and age, the everlasting presence of technology, combined with increasing air pollution and erratic lifestyles means that most of us are in real danger of developing serious health problems. Therefore, it is up to us to help build a healthy environment in which we can safely raise our children; and what better place to start from, than our own home? Buying a Himalayan salt lamp can prove to be a small, but smart step towards having a cleaner body and mind.
4. Helps fight asthma and allergy
Himalayan salt lamps are beneficial for people who suffer from asthma or have allergies. The lamp gets rid of microscopic particles such as dust, pollen or mold. In fact, Himalayan pink salt can even be found in some inhalers used by people with asthma, who claim that it has significantly reduced their symptoms.
5. Color therapy
Himalayan salt lamps can vary in color, from white crystalline to pink, or from reddish to a darker beef color. Illuminated with a small light bulb, they have been used for color therapy, where electromagnetic waves affect the hormonal and physiological functions of a human body. According to an analysis by National Institutes of Health, each color (Chakra) emitting from electromagnetic fields have proved to sustain certain organs. The analysis added that each Chakra can pump energy into organs and glands. For example, red and orange work on pleasure, emotions, and the pelvic and lower back area.

Himalayan pink salt lamps are excellent when it comes to naturally improving your mood and concentration, which might go a long way to help you relax and unwind after the most stressful of days. These effects are due to enhanced blood and oxygen supply to your brain and organs as well as a significant boost of serotonin, which is the neurotransmitter that makes us happy. All of these outcomes are possible as a result of the effects negative ions have on our bodies.
