Sourced and mined in Pakistan, Himalayan salt has benefited people for thousands of years. Because of the optimal state of health in the miners, people began to further explore the value of the salt. It has since been discovered that Himalayan salt provides numerous health benefits to humans. Beyond the ingestion of salt, you can absorb the benefits of Himalayan salt in a variety of ways. One of the easiest ways is with salt lamps. Himalayan Salt Company offers a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors perfect to fit in any environment. Beyond the décor, here are few of the health benefits that your salt lamps can provide to you.
Energy is all around us. From computers to phones, televisions to alarm clocks, we are surrounded by electricity. When heated, salt lamps release negative ions into the air. These ions help to balance, or neutralize, the air in your home by attracting water molecules. These water molecules evaporate back into the air helping to absorb elements such as dust, pollen, and smoke.
Because Himalayan salt lamps help clean the air, the removal of foreign elements helps to increase respiratory function. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, try placing a few lamps around your home. However, you must be consistent when turning your lights on to feel the benefits.
Further claims state that exposure to high levels of negative ions increases levels of serotonin. Serotonin is a chemical released by the brain. It is responsible for mood regulation. Thus, you may experience lower levels of anxiety and higher levels of happiness. Because of this new relaxed state, some people also find that salt lamps help to improve their concentration when used in the work environment.
Whereas positively charged ions reduce blood supply and oxygen to the brain, negatively charged ions do the opposite. Thus, irregular sleep patterns are a thing of the past. It’s best to turn your lamps on during the day and off during the night. Although the soft pink glow of the salt lamp can be relaxing, it can also wake you during the night if you are a light sleeper.
