Which is the Best Himalayan Salt Lamp for You?


Ever wonder, no matter how exhausted you are, you still struggle to get sleep? Before taking that sleeping pill, think about what made you feel tired throughout the day. 

But, what if there's a calming energy that can help you relieve stress and anxiety before bed? Here's when the Himalayan Salt Lamp comes in. ✨

Himalayan Salt Lamps are aesthetically beautiful that provide a sense of ease and a warm glow. Blocks of pure Himalayan salt from ancient oceans known as the "Vitamins of the Air" have many health benefits and healing properties. For the past few years, the Himalayan salt lamps have become famous for a good reason. Here are 7 reasons why: 

1. Himalayan Salt Lamp Neutralizes Electromagnetic Radiation  

Living in the digital age, we can't imagine our lives without tech appliances such as computers, tablets, televisions, air conditioners, geysers, cell phones, etc. Unfortunately, these devices emit harmful electromagnetic radiationWhat's electromagnetic radiation, you ask? 

Electromagnetic radiation (or EM) is the energy that is produced by electronic devices that releases positive ions (radiation) into the air. An overabundance of these is believed to cause fatigue, increase stress and weaken your immune system. So positive ions are maybe not so positive! 

While these everyday appliances constantly release positive ions into the air, Himalayan salt lamps help neutralize this electromagnetic radiation from our homes and workspaces by emitting negative ions. Therefore, balancing electromagnetic radiation help reduces artificial frequencies and prevent static buildup. A popular sleep aid directly relates to chromotherapy; its soothing light can help people who suffer from insomnia. 😴

2. Himalayan Salt Lamp Cleans and Deodorizes the Air for Better Breathing

One of the most compelling benefits of Himalayan salt lamps is their ability to purify the air by removing dust, cigarette smoke, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants in the atmosphere. This is enough to keep one in your home, especially if you smoke or have pets. 🐶🐱

Himalayan salt lamps can clean the air around them through hygroscopy. This is basically attracting and holding water molecules - the salt lamp absorbs contaminated water from its immediate environment. Then, it locks it to the salt crystal itself. So. having a soothing salt lamp in your room or workspace helps remove airborne toxins and lets you breathe healthier.

3. Himalayan Salt Lamp Prevents Allergies and Controls Asthma 

Pollen season can make life miserable for anyone who suffers from allergies. Himalayan Salt lamps can filter dust, mould, pet dander and mildew from indoor air. Just as you inhale steam or a nasal saline spray to clear a blocked nose, these salt lamps prevent allergies. While one medium-sized light is enough, you may consider keeping one large or two medium-sized lamps if you have severe allergies. 🤧

Even asthma patients have claimed that having Himalayan salt lamps around aids breathing. As a result, Himalayan salt inhalers are recommended for patients suffering from asthma, bronchitis and respiratory diseases. 

4. Himalayan Salt Lamp Can Help You De-stress To Getting Sound Sleep 

Based on colour therapy or chromotherapy, the warm pinkish to orange glow of the Himalayan glow salt lamp is a calming and happy presence in a room. The tranquil light of the Himalayan Salt Lamps balances physical, spiritual, and emotional energies. ✨

Himalayan pink salt lamps emit negative ions, which radiates relaxing vibes to the room. Once a negative ion reaches the bloodstream, they produce a biochemical reaction that increases the serotonin level, responsible for that "happy feeling". This will help alleviate depression, relieve stress, and allows you to get a sound sleep at night and feel energized the following day. Keep one large or two medium-sized lamps in your bedroom if you're suffering from insomnia or irregular sleeping patterns

5. Himalayan Salt Lamp Boosts Energy Levels  

Ever feel drained after watching many Netflix shows or being on your phone for an extended time? Again, positive ions- not so positive - can actually deplete your energy. Since Himalayan Salt lamps emit negative ions to counteract the positive ones, this will leave you with a refreshing feeling like you've just been for a relaxing walk in the great outdoors. 🏞

Negative ions from Himalayan Salt Lamps boost energy levels, cure depression and put you in a cheerful mood. You start feeling as fresh and energetic with these lamps around after the daily work grind. 

6. Himalayan Salt Lamp Improves Mindfulness, Focus and Work Productivity  

Mindfulness isn't a new thing, as much as it's now become prevalent in spaces from workplaces to schools. However, you don't need to actively practice mindfulness to get a similar effect from having a Himalayan Salt Lamp in your home. Just having it in your space will create a calm, peaceful vibe. As trendy as they are, there's definitely something to be said about how a salt lamp can benefit your life. 😉

With Himalayan pink salt lamps, the negative ions emitted accelerate the supply of blood and oxygen to the brain, improving concentration. With sharper focus and reduced stress, work productivity goes up

7. Himalayan Salt Lamp Adds Natural Light To Your Room 

 Himalayan Salt Lamps are incredibly useful during the winter months with less sunlight exposure due to their soothing pink hue. Their soft light is pleasant to the eyes and offers your home a relaxing atmosphere. If you're suffering from a seasonal affective disorder or simply feel down when the weather is gloomy, a Himalayan lamp can help. ☀️

When paired with other healthy decorating elements such as reed diffusers and hangings, Himalayan salt lamps may do amazing things for your well-being. Moreover, some of these lamps have a dimmer control switch that allows you to adjust the lamp's brightness to suit your mood or needs. 

Which is the Best Himalayan Salt Lamp for You?

When looking for the ideal Himalayan Salt Lamp, there are many options, each with its own form, size, and colouration.

While they all function, knowing how to pick the most delicate Himalayan salt lamp for you is essential for getting the most advantages

When it comes to these lamps, size is an essential factor

The larger the piece, the more effective the light. ☀️

The best size for you will be determined by how you want to use the lamp for.

A tiny lamp will do in an average-sized bedroom, but a more medium-sized will be required in a large living, dining, or family area.

If a big lamp is too bulky or does not match the rest of the décor, you may still get the benefits by purchasing two or three smaller lights and placing them in different parts of the room.

Purchasing smaller lights saves money and allows you to shift your lamps around if your décor changes frequently. There is no such thing as having too many lamps in one space, whether for aesthetic or health reasons.
