Himalayan salts have become a common ingredient in our home, and they can provide many health benefits, like boosted digestion and regulating high blood pressure.
This mineral-packed salt is hand-mined from high up in the Himalayan mountains, and it is distributed all around the world. The pinky salt comes in several forms. The one you eat has less sodium when compared to regular table salt, but in this article we will discuss about a slightly different form of Himalayan pink salt.
You may have noticed that your energy gets restored and you feel refreshed and revitalized due to some natural phenomena, like waterfalls, or being in front of rushing waves at the waterfront. Namely, these locations and sights contain negative ions, which are responsible for the sensation they cause.
These ions are created in nature, and Himalayan salt lamps physically and chemically transform your home, as they provide health benefits and add color and glow.
We are frequently by negative and positive ions- charged molecules which float through the air. Positive ions have been dubbed ‘electronic smog’ which may have a harmful effect on the health and wellbeing.
These ions have been charged by the big screen of microwaves, computers, TVs, telephones, smartphones, and any other electronic wave in the air.
According to the World Health Organization, electronic smog is ‘one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences.’ They also stated that general awareness should be brought at higher level. Many studies have confirmed that our brains are attacked by 20 times more frequencies than it should be, and they lead to insomnia, allergies, mental health issues, nerve disorders, and potentially other issues.
Therefore, positive ions are not, in fact, positive, and they are a product of almost everything that we use nowadays, so they need to be neutralized. However, there is a way to provide a neutralized (or even negative) ion effect in your home.
On the other hand, when a molecule gains a negatively charged electron, it leads to the creation of a negative ion. These ions attract natural pollutants such as irritants, allergens, mold and dust, and gives them a negative charge, so it neutralizes them and they lose their harmful properties.
Negative ions are usually present in nature, at the beach, near waterfalls, in the forest, and and they stimulate the flow of oxygen to the brain, increase our mental alertness and give us an immense energy boost.
But, as we cannot bring the natural sight to our home, we should get some other source of negative ions. Well, Himalayan salt lamps are the best choice, they can neutralize these positive ions, and bring a fresh power in your home.
These lamps are also known as “Vitamins of the Air”. They include a block of pure Himalayan salt from the ancient oceans. These lamps have a small bulb on the inside and produce light, a negative-ion atmosphere, and many health benefits.
The heat from the lamp inside warms up the crystals, and stimulates the emission of negative ions. Salt is actually hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water from the surrounding. You will notice how the lamp becomes damp or wet in humid rooms. The heat causes the water to evaporate and thus creates negative ions. It is at this point when these ions start doing their job.
These negative ions search for positive ions in order to bind, bring them down and provide health benefits. The negative ions will attach to excessive positive ions such as mold, allergens, and bacteria. In this way, these lamps effectively neutralize the electronic smog.
Ionized places provide vitality, energy, and freshness, and the atmosphere calms the mind and body. Furthermore, the warm glow will provide soothing and relaxing sensation.
This is what these lamps are able to do:
- Ionize the room
- Stabilize and neutralize artificial electromagnetic waves from electronics and unnatural frequencies.
- Create rainbow-spectrum light waves which have a healing and soothing properties.
The benefits of the Himalayan salt lamps will begin working as soon as you plug the light in and turn it on. By doing so, you will enjoy the numerous benefits of the lamp as it can be helpful in the case of:
- Headaches and migraines
- Blood system disorders
- Respiratory problems (as well as colds)
- Mental and stress-related disorders (as well as insomnia
- Allergies and skin issues
The use of Himalayan salt lamp can create a warm atmosphere in your home as it will improve the air quality, improve health, provide relaxation, induce meditation, and maintain your wellbeing.
Also, remember to place it in the room where you and your family spend a lot of time, and in a room which is full of electronic devices which fill the air with positive ions.
Keep them in your living room, or get a few smaller lamps and set them in every room in your house.Also you can put one in the entrance hall or foyer, in order to provide the beneficial effect as soon as you enter your home.
Also, make sure you are purchasing a real Himalayan salt lamp, because there are many fake types on the market, like substitutes from rock salt, which cannot offer the same effect.
