Why you need a Himalayan Salt Lamp in your Life

I have been after a Himalayan salt lamp for what seems like forever! Not long after we moved into our new home I spotted one in my local crystal shop and I knew I had to have it.

I am sure most of you will be asking the same question … What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp?

Well salt lamps are known for their amazing health benefits and healing qualities. Himalayan salt lamps work at emitting the many negative ions that surround us in the air every day. The crystals in the salt combined with the light work together to purify the air around us.

Put simply the salt attracts water and the heat from the lamp causes the water to evaporate and create negative ions. The positive ions in the air (from computers, tv and mobile phones) then bind to the negative ions and remain trapped in the salt and thus creating balance!

Still with me?

Additionally salt lamps can …

Reduce allergens in the air such as pollen and dust

Improve concentration and mood

Reduce stress and boots serotonin levels in the brain

Improve sleep quality

I have my lamp in my living room as that is where we spend the most time plus we seem to have the most technology in there. I am seriously thinking of investing in one for our bedroom as we both suffer with sleep problems from time to time.

In order to get the most benefit from your salt lamp try and keep it away from appliances that produce a lot of moisture such as showers, dishwashers etc.

Unfortunately there are fake salt lamps out there. There are 2 clear ways to spot a fake however …

A fake lamp will have a bright clear light – Genuine lamps have a warm soft glow.

Fake lamps are moisture resistant – It is normal to see little deposits of salt around your lamp, this means it is working correctly!

One last wee tip for your salt lamp … by placing a few drops of your favourite essential oil on top the heat from the lamp will make your surroundings smell amazing!

Do you have a Himalayan salt lamp?

Would you consider buying one?

    I had no idea that a Himalayan salt lamp can have so many benefits for a home. I have seen them in shops but never thought to buy one. Keeping the house clean of allergens is definitely a big plus!

    I wouldn’t have known what a Himalayan salt lamp was unless I had seen on only last weekend in a health spa. I was sitting in the waiting room, relaxing on a wicker lounger, feeling totally at ease, and spotted it. And here you are talking about them now. I would certainly consider having one at home if I had the space (not so at the moment, due to my 5 year old).

    I’ve been wanting one of these for ages. I could have easily fallen for the fake Himalayan salt lamp scam, but thanks to your post I’ll now be looking for the soft, warm glow. x
