What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp?
Being at the beach enjoying the soothing sounds of the waves or sitting by a waterfall can really make you fill better, mentally refreshed and boost your energy, and the reason for that are the negative ions that are naturally produced in these kind of places. Well, the Himalayan salt lamp can make similar effect as it has the ability to produce negative ions. The Himalayan salt lamp is a block of pure Himalayan salt with a small light bulb inside and if you have it in your room, it can make your air fresher and cleaner, as well as make you feel better.
How Do Himalayan Salt Lamps Work?
First let’s explain what are the negative ions produced by the salt lamp. We are surrounded by both positive and negative ions and these are atoms or molecules in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, what makes them electrically charged, positive or negative.
A considerable amount positive ions is often generated by electronics devices like computers, TVs, or microwaves and they can cause problems like allergies, insomnia and stress. So, having a salt lamp in your living room or anywhere you choose can help you cleanse the air by its ability to generate negative ions which neutralize the positive ions.
Here’s how the unique design of salt lamps enables the ionizing effect:
The salt block itself is hydroscopic, which means it can attract water to its surface and that’s why you can something notice that the lamp is damp or even wet, especially in more humid environments. The small amount of heat generated from the light bulb helps the water evaporate and during this process the negative ions are being produced.
As many allergens, bacteria or airborne mold carry positive ions, they can be neutralized by the negative ions produced by the salt lamps, making the air in your room cleaner and fresher. They can also help:
- Lower static electricity in the air
- Reduce allergy and asthma symptoms
- Improve mood and concentration
- Increase energy levels
- Sleep better
How To Use Them In Your Home
Placing a single salt lamp in the corner of your room probably won’t make you any difference. You should choose the right place for it, as it has limited range. Also, if possible, use more than one salt lamp, near places where you spend most of your time or places that have a lot of electronics devices. However, sometimes it may take more than a week in order to notice the effects of the negative ions generation.
