Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps And Their Health Benefits
About Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps
Himalayan crystal salt lamps are made from blocks of crystal salt rocks mined from the ancient dried up lakes at the Himalayan foothills. They come in various shapes and sizes.
It was found that the miners doing the daily grind of mining of the Himalayan crystal salts from these ancient dried lakes though working deep down in the earth at depths of about 1500 meters surprisingly remained very healthy inspite of the extremely difficult working conditions there.

It was believed that the reason for their good health appeared to be their close association with these salt mines they were working in. Since times immemorial salt has been used as a preservative for food. It is also known that hot water springs are full of health giving salts and rejuvenate one's body.
Since olden times people have been coming to get rejuvenated and destress themselves, in salt mines and caves and getting a natural salt therapy. It has been found that salt mines have an excess of negative ion environment. It is known now that salt ionises the air naturally with negative ions.
It has been established by way of published studies that negative ions have positive or healing effects on our body. They clean the air of pollutants and remove the positive charged ions.
Himalayan crystal salt lamps are natural lamps made of Himalayan crystal salt.
How Are Positive Ions Produced
All electronic devices like TV's computers, mobiles, PDA's, microwave ovens. etc produce severe electronic air pollution in the form of electromagnetic waves and vibrations that are positively charged ions.
Positive charged ions have been known to cause :
- Increase in nervous symptoms, stress, sleeping problems, concentration issues, increase in free radicals, allergy issues etc.
It has been found that if we happen to be near a waterfall, the seashore, on a mountain top or closer to nature, we breathe much easier and experience a release of stress. This also happens after natural phenomena like rainfall and thunderstorms. the reason being that the natural production of negative ions during these natural phenomena produces negative ions which neutralise the positive ions present leading to excess of negative ions in the atmosphere and the consequent effects.
It is very easy to produce these beneficial negative ions by using Himalayan crystal salt lamps.
How The Crystal Salts Lamps Work
It is known that salt attracts moisture which condenses on the surface of the crystal salts lamp. Once the lamp is put on, the heated salt crystal causes moisture condensation on it which causes the electrically bound sodium and chloride to split into the positive sodium and negative ions. Simultaneously, the water evaporation causes it to split into 2 negative hydrogen ions and 1 positive oxygen ion.
The resultant excess is a negative ion which combines with the positive ion in the surroundings to neutralize and ultimately remove all the positive ions and make the air dense with negative ions. This is a fast and on going process.
Using Himalayan crystal salt lamps make the process of producing negative ions simple and fast.

- Himalayan Crystal Salt And Its Health Benefits
Salt is an essential component of the human body as important as water. It is needed for various functions in the body. Himalayan crystal salt is the only salt that provides all the essential minerals that the body needs. To know the why and how of t
Some Ways To Improve Indoor Air Quality
- Bring some plants indoors. they help to freshen up the air as well as remove certain air pollutants.
- Do not smoke indoors.
- Cross ventilate the house to get fresh air in.
- Use fresh air exhaust fan to remove stale air and smoke from the kitchen as well as draw fresh air in once the knob controlling the fan is turned the other way.
- Dust & vacuum regularly to remove as much of the dust as possible.
- Remove toxic chemicals and cleaners from within the house to the outside.
- Control pet dander.
These benefits can be obtained on a smaller scale in the house or office by the use of Himalayan crystal salt lamps, the natural lamps. These lamps are lit by small light bulbs that are pushed in through at the base. Fused bulbs can be replaced very easily. It is better to spread out few small lamps evenly rather than have 1 big lamp in a large area.
