How Himalayan Salt Lamps Work

They’re pretty, they’re pink and they’re also practical: himalayan salt lamps are a decor trend with a purpose. While the soft glow of the lamps are enough of a reason to include them in a room, the lamps are also believed to recharge a room so to speak.

Color: Every Himalayan crystal salt lamp is unique and the combination of colors that makes up yours can vary.

2. Purifying The Air: Natural living afficionados boast that the core benefit of these lamps is “their incredible power to remove pollen, dust, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants from the air”.

3. Reduce Asthma & Allergy Symptoms: The fact that special Himalayan pink salt inhalers exist, and that they seem to have tremendous beneficial effects on asthma, bronchitis, and other respitory ailments rules in favor of the exotic salt.

4. Improve Breathing: Studies show that negative ions increase cilial activity while positive ions have a negative effect. Cilia are the microscopic hairs lining the windpipe (trachea).

5. Increase Energy Levels: One of the boldest claims. Because positive ions sap your body of energy, HPS lamps can make you more energetic. Often the link between being out in nature (where negative ions are abundant) and feeling invigorated is attributed to these lamps too.

6. Help You Sleep Better: Another popular claim is that the lamps help you sleep better. The theory is that over-exposure to positive ions in the air lead to a reduction of blood and oxygen supply to the brain resulting in irregular sl
