5 Reasons To Keep a Himalayan Salt Lamp in Every Room Of Your Home!
Himalayan salt lamps can do so much more than simply light up a room! These incredible ancient crystals do look lovely around the home, but they also offer a range of health and wellness benefits.
From trapping dust to boosting your mood and creating a calming environment, keep reading as we share 5 great reasons to keep a Himalayan salt lamp in every room of your home.
Himalayan salt lamps can improve air quality
Himalayan salt lamps are naturally hygroscopic, meaning they absorb moisture from the surrounding air. Essentially, your Himalayan salt lamp will act as a natural air purifier, working to absorb (and most importantly, trap!) airborne pollutants such as dust, mould and mildew. With this in mind, Himalayan salt lamps are ideal for those who may suffer from asthma, allergies or respiratory issues.
Himalayan salt lamps boost our mood and energy levels
Himalayan salt lamps produce negative ions - but why is this a good thing? Well, exposure to negative ions is thought to increase our energy levels, improve concentration and boost our overall mood! Negative ions are most commonly found in nature - for example, at the foot of a waterfall, or by the crashing waves of the ocean. This is why we often feel so energetic and refreshed in these locations. Placing a Himalayan salt lamp in every room may help you feel more alert and rejuvenated at home.
Himalayan salt lamps balance positive ions
While negative ions make us feel happy and refreshed, positive ions can have the opposite effect. Everyday electronics and appliances such as mobile phones, computers and televisions are constantly releasing positive ions, which is why we often feel tired, tense or stressed after too much exposure to our devices. By emitting negative ions, Himalayan salt lamps help to combat and neutralise our exposure to these positive ions.
Himalayan salt lamps can help you sleep better
Did you know Himalayan salt lamps are also great sleep aids? The warm, amber glow emitted by Himalayan salt lamps (as opposed to the blue light emitted by our devices!) has a soothing and calming effect on our bodies, and creates the perfect ambience needed for deep, restful sleep. This also means Himalayan salt lamps make the perfect night lights for your little ones.
Himalayan salt lamps have a calming effect
There’s a good reason why many mums-to-be bring a Himalayan salt lamp to the labour ward with them! The soothing light produced by salt lamps in hues of orange, yellow and red are thought to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and even balance our physical and emotional energy.
How to choose the right Himalayan salt lamp
When it comes to Himalayan salt lamps, size matters, so be sure to choose the right size lamp for your needs. Small salt lamps are great for bedrooms and offices, while large lamps are great for living areas and studios. We recommend building a collection of salt lamps, and aim to have one in each room of your home!
