Himalayan Salt Lamps

Updated on February 22, 2014

Not Your Ordinary Table Lamp

Himalayan salt lamps are not comparable to the ordinary table lamp. They are more likely to be used for home decor or as air purifiers. Popular among interior decorators, they are often found in homes, offices and places for health and healing such as meditation centers, massage parlors and therapy rooms.


What’s So Good About Himalayan Salt?

Himalayan crystal salt has been preserved for hundreds of millions of years in underground caves located in the foothills of the Himalayas. These salt crystals have a high mineral content and are much healthier than traditional table salt because they are free from toxins and pollutants that are found in other common salts. In fact, himalayan salt can actually match your bodies chemistry. This is because Himalayan crystal salts contain 84 of the natural minerals and elements found in the human body.

Salt Lamps As a Natural Air Purifier

Salt lamps or crystal lamps can work like an air purifier by removing dust, allergens, bacteria, mold spores and odors. This happens because heat from the bulb causes salt to emit negative ions in the air. These negative ions bond with pollutants in the air also known as positive ions. When both the negative and the positive ions bond together they become heavy and fall to the ground. This is how salt lamps neutralize and purify the air. People with allergies and asthma can really benefit from this.

Salt Lamps are a multi-use item. They are great for:

  • Mood Lighting
  • Romantic evenings
  • Nightlights
  • Office or home decor

And you'll be amazed what you can do with Himalayan salt

  • It's great for cooking
  • Can be used as bath salts or body scrubs
  • Very effective for preserving meats

Himalayan salt has many health benefits as well

  • Controls water levels in your body
  • Promotes stable PH balance
  • Aids in healthy sleep patterns
  • Improves skin conditions
  • Regulates the bodies blood sugar

I hope you get to enjoy the beauty and health benefits of Himalayan salt lamps and pure crystal salt. Thanks for visiting!
