It’s a place that, generally, makes us feel better after a long day’s and protectsions us from the harmful effects of the elements including allergens during the summer and the cold weather that triggers asthma during the winter.
However, there’s much we can do to make our home even more comfortable, safe, and nourishing for both our body and mind. And one of the best examples of this is a Himalayan salt lamp.
There are few things you can add to your home that are so easy to acquire and yet can have such a positive impact as a Himalayan salt lamp.
So, why should you have a Himalayan salt lamp in your home? Here are 7 powerful reasons a Himalayan salt lamp is a perfect addition to this special space:
1. Their soothing glow reduces stress
There are many reasons to have a Himalayan salt lamp in your home (or 2), but the power of their soothing glow is perhaps one of the most powerful.
The soft, warm pinkish glow that an authentic Himalayan salt lamp gives off is calm-inducing and acts as the perfect furnishing to help reduce stress when coming home after a long and difficult day of work.
The light isn’t so strong that it illuminates an entire room, so the glow is just enough to see clearly while not being headache-inducing when you just want your mind to have a little moment of reprieve.
2. They might just clean the air
Some of the most reported benefits from our customers of Himalayan salt lamps are those connected with their ability to cleanse the air of harmful pollutants.
Here’s the theory: through the hygroscopic process that salt undergoes regularly, pollutants such as mold and bacteria are regularly extracted from the air, cleansing and purifying the very air you breath in your home.
The next time you look at your salt lamp, notice the condensation on the lamp. This is the hygroscopic process in action. It’s “sweating” with the water molecules it has attracted, which will then be dissolved by the heat of the lamp over time.
This process is then repeated continuously, so your Himalayan salt lamp is always purifying the air in your home (whether you’re home or not).
3. They May reduce Allergens
In addition to removing harmful pollutants, customers report that Himalayan salt lamps also help to reduce allergies and symptoms of asthma in your home.
This same hygroscopic process that might just remove pollutants also helps to remove allergens from the air, leaving the air within your home removed of the allergens running rampant outside especially during the Summer.
In addition, salt has been shown to treat symptoms of asthma (and is even used in some inhalers). 1
The seasons bring their own unique challenges depending on you and your family’s bodily composition, so having a Himalayan salt lamp in your home has been reported by our customers to continuously remove allergens.
4. They give us energy
If the above reasons weren’t enough, some customers report that an authentic Himalayan salt lamp does more than just reduce stress and cleanse the air, it also helps boost our energy levels.
The pinkish-orange hue that a Himalayan salt lamp emits is a color often used in color therapy treatments to both increase focus and energy.
During the hygroscopic process, when the lamp dissolves the water molecules with its heat, negative ions are then released into the air. These negative ions are the reason for many of the Himalayan salt lamp’s benefits.
This makes a Himalayan salt lamp great for not just reducing stress after a long day, but also for increasing your energy when you first wake and prepare for the day ahead.
5. They’re great for sleep at the end of a long day
Modern devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers emit what is generally referred to as “blue light”.Why is that important? Because this blue light is highly disruptive to our sleep quality. The blue light our devices give off makes our brain think it’s still daytime, therein inhibiting melatonin production in the brain, a chemical which prepares our body for sleep.
Without enough of this chemical produced before sleep, our sleep quality suffers. Luckily, Himalayan salt lamps may help with this as well.
The amber-colored light that a real Himalayan salt lamp gives off simulates the light that the sun gives off right at sunset, making it perfect evening lighting.
But there’s more. The negative ions given off during the hygroscopic process have been proven to positively affect our circadian rhythm, so Himalayan salt lamps may have the ability to both better prepare our body for sleep and improve our sleep quality while sleeping as well.
6. They May help combat radiation
Another unfortunate effect of having our smartphones and other various devices around us at all times is that they give off a harmful level of electromagnetic radiation.
Electromagnetic radiation is given off by all electronic devices, but it wasn’t a real problem until recently when all of us began carrying around electromagnetic receives in our pockets 24/7. Now, it’s become nothing short of a looming health crisis that will get more and more attention as the years go by.
Research has found that long-term exposure to even low levels of radiation can cause fatigue, increased stress, lower immune function, and even serious health conditions such as cancer.
Luckily, our customers report that a Himalayan salt lamp in your home will help with this as well.
The negative ions given off by a Himalayan salt lamp during the hygroscopic process have been shown to help negate the negative effects of electromagnetic radiation, adding yet another incredible benefit to having one of these simple and beautiful lamps in your home.
7. They’re absolutely beautiful
It’s unbelievable that it took us this long to get this point, given it’s the first thing most people notice or think of when they see a Himalayan salt lamp, but the benefits of having an authentic Himalayan salt lamp in your home are numerous and far-reaching.
However, while it’s an easy benefit to overlook given the incredible reasons we mentioned above to have a Himalayan salt lamp in your home, an authentic Himalayan salt lamp is an absolutely beautiful style addition to any home.
Sure, the pictures are nice, but if you’ve never seen one in person, you know– the pictures just don’t do it enough justice.
And, get this: According to research, looking at something we consider pleasing to the eye activates the area of the cerebellum that governs hand movement. That’s right, beauty literally gets our body moving.
Beyond that, an authentic Himalayan salt lamp stands as a symbol for all to see who visit your home. A symbol of natural, holistic living, and the pursuit of returning to our roots to a moment in time where we were closer to the Earth and the incredible benefits it bestows.
