Introducing: Himalayan Salt and the Himalayan Salt Lamp
Himalayan Salt is obtained from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. It is a naturally rose-colored rock salt. Its nutritional value includes rich compositions of essential nutrients (minerals) that make it a high quality extensively demanded item worldwide. Iron oxide present within the salt results in it being pink colored. It is used as an alternative for regular salt in cooking and a bath salt, on account of its purity.
Himalayan salt, in the form of large crystal rocks are used in the making of Salt Lamps. These lamps are on high demand in the global market, mostly for their auspicious healing capabilities, and also because of their highly recognized nutritional and holistic health benefits. The lamps consist of a bulb/candle placed inside the center of the crystal. Its main function is to eliminate the positive ions in the air and produce negative ions that are almost the same as breathing fresh air.
What are Positive and Negative Ions?
While negative ions in the atmosphere are created by natural causes like ocean waves, sunlight and lightning, positive ions are created by electronic devices such as microwave, television and computer emissions. Scientific research has concluded that negative ions cause positive impacts on the body such as increasing – alertness, the oxygen flow into the organs and brain and mental energy, and decreasing symptoms like drowsiness. In fact negative ions stimulate serotonin release for improving neurotransmission to improve your mood.
However, due to the large number of electrical appliances at our homes we are consistently affected by positive ions, depleting our negative ions in the process. Therefore there is a high risk of us getting insomnia, poor mental health and headaches.
How does a Himalayan Salt Lamp Work?
The negative ions produced by the Lamp have neutralizing effects on the positive ions by bonding together, thereby cleansing the air. These negative ions are emitted when the bulb is turned on or the candle is lit within the crystal, causing the salt and light to combine and form the ions to be released. Salt being hygroscopic in nature, attracts the heat source and water. This brings about a reaction leading to evaporation which releases the negative ions into the atmosphere.
So just place the Salt Lamps near you electrical devices to reduce the positive ions in the air. This action will definitely be effective in preventing the damage done to your health by the positive ions. Hence, if you are suffering from insomnia and migraines keep a Salt Lamp beside your bed while you sleep to treat the condition and eradicate the root causes of it.
Himalayan Salt Lamps are available in holistic stores and online sites for purchase. Nevertheless you must watch out for its authenticity as some could be a downright fake produced from rock salt and not the real crystal lamp.
