The Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps

Breathe easy with Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps

Hey Gorgeous Goddess,

Today I want to talk about the health benefits you can receive, by using Himalayan crystal salt lamps in your space, whether that be in your home or at your workplace. We’ll be diving into what a Himalayan crystal salt lamp is, how it works, why it’s so good for you, where best to put it, how to care for it and where you can get one for yourself!

What Is A Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp?

Himalayan crystal salt lamps are carved out of Himalayan rock salt and made by placing a bulb or flame inside. Authentic Himalayan crystal salt lamps come from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan. The salt this mine produces has a reddish, pink, or off-white colour and emits a dim, warm glow when lit.

How Does It Work?

Through attracting and evaporating moisture in the air, Himalayan crystal salt lamps produce and release negatively charged ions (the healthy kind) into the atmosphere, instantly negating the harmful effects of the positively charged ions (the toxic kind, generated by electrical equipment). The heat from the bulb assists in the emission of the negative ions. These negative ions bond with the positive ions, neutralising them and removing them from the air.

What Are The Health Benefits Of Using A Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp?

The pink salt sourced from the Khewra Salt Mine is believed to be millions of years old and holds many health benefits. Himalayan salt lamps are nature’s way of purifying our space of pollution, caused by EMF’s (Electromagnetic Fields) or EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation), Wi-Fi and dirty electricity. You can read more about these invisible toxins in my article The Dangers of EMF’s, Wi-Fi & Dirty Electricity”.

Some of the health benefits include:

  • Purifies and cleanses the air naturally
  • Relief from asthma
  • Relief from allergies
  • Helps to calm the nervous system
  • Aids stress relief
  • Promotes restorative sleep

Where Should I Put My Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp?

I highly recommend positioning your salt lamp close to technology to neutralise the harmful effects of the electrical pollution. I currently have a salt lamp that sits on my office desk, close to my computer and one that I have placed next to our TV, however, my goal is to have a salt lamp in every room of our home for maximum air purity. To get started, you can simply plug in and turn on a few Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps in your home and workplace to receive the benefits from them.

Tip: Avoid placing in rooms with excess humidity, such as in your bathroom or outdoors, as this can cause the lamp to sweat.

How To Care For Your Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp:

A salt lamp is “rock-like” it can last for decades if cared for correctly.

  • To clean, wipe down with a damp cloth periodically. (Ensure not to use too much water as this will dissolve the salt).
  • For best results, leave your lamp on constantly, particularly if humid or raining as this will help to evaporate the excess moisture in the air. (The lamp will start to pool moisture if it is not used frequently enough).

Where Can I Get My Hands On A Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp?

I bought my first salt lamp from a farmer’s market and another from a local health food store. You can also find them in crystal shops and even in some home décor stores. It is possible to buy them online, however there is the risk that you could end up with a fake, which will not have the same health benefits.

Tip: Ask the seller where the salt lamp has been sourced from and if it’s not coming from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan then you can politely say “Thank you, but no thank you, I’ll keep looking”.

So beautiful, I hope this article has inspired you to purchase your very own Himalayan crystal salt lamp and start receiving its benefits! If you feel motivated to make some positive changes and believe this post could encourage someone else as well, then please share it with them now!!! I want to spread the message of true health and happiness to as many people as possible and I would LOVE your help so get sharing!

Love Kat Xx
