Why You Should Have a Himalayan Salt Lamp in Your Home
Himalayan pink salt is one of the purest salts you can buy. Not only does it taste arguably even more wonderful than traditional salt—it does everything from balancing pH to strengthening bones and lowering blood pressure.
You don't even need to eat the salt to reap the benefits; simply having it around you can be helpful in treating things like allergies, insomnia and migraines.
That doesn't mean you have to sprinkle the salt around your home, by the way—there's a much more gorgeous solution, in the form of a lamp.
G.S. Rahi, associate professor of physical science at Fayetteville State University, had the following to say in regards to the benefits of Himalayan pink salt:
“As all living systems (including human beings) are bio-electric in nature, the electrically charged particles affect the way we feel and act. In natural setting a balance of positive and negative ions contributes to one's sensations and perceptions. Atmospheric ions can affect health, well-being, efficiency, emotions and mental attitude of human beings."
Rahi confirms that placing salt lamps around your home can work wonders to reduce the amount of unhealthy positive ions in your home.
Other sources have raved about the lamps as well, claiming that they increase energy levels and concentration, making them something you just might want to keep around the office or bedroom.
But aside from the benefits they provide you, Himalayan salt lamps are also speculated to be an environmentally friendly source of light.
Some lamps are lit by candles, while others use low wattage light bulbs. The means through which the lamps are constructed are quite green as well, with the reserves that Himalayan pink salt comes from estimated to last another 350 years at the current rate of mining.
So instead of heading to your nearest department store for a conventional lamp, why not take a look around the web for a salt lamp?
