What is a Salt Lamp?
A salt lamp is a lamp made out of Himalayan sea salt that not only lights up your room but may also provide you with a plethora of health and environmental benefits. Here are a few reasons you may want to add a salt lamp to your décor.
1. Clean and purified air
Salt lamps are popular for purifying and cleansing the air around you and may even help reduce air pollution. They do this through a process of cleansing and purifying called hygroscopy. The salt lamp essentially attracts and absorbs contaminated molecules of water in the air and then locks them within the salt crystal, acting as a very simple air purifier.
2. Improved breathing
By purifying and cleansing the air, the salt lamp improves the air you breathe, gradually clearing your air passages. Your body contains fine hairs known as cilia that act as a very small breathing filter along your windpipe. Positive ions decrease the performance of your cilia while negative ions improve it. These salt lamps release negative ions that enhance the performance of your cilia, making it easier for you to breathe by cleaning out your lungs.
3. Balanced electromagnetic radiation
Electromagnetic radiation is harmful to our mind and body. Overexposure to these electromagnetic radiations may cause fatigue, stress, bad immune health, cancer, and tumors. Devices like our phones and laptops keep us in continued exposure to the positive ions of electromagnetic radiation. Salt lamps reduce and balance electromagnetic radiations by emitting negative ions that cancel out the positive ions. This is how they prevent electromagnetic static build up and reduce artificial frequencies.
4. Alleviate allergies and throat problems
Salt lamps may be effective in preventing or reducing the symptoms of the common cold, flu, sore throat, and sinus infections. The negative ions that are produced by salt lamps may help protect against illnesses caused by impurities in the air. These negative ions also absorb particles in the air that can block our windpipes when we breathe them in.
5. Increased energy levels
The negative ions in our body are responsible for increasing or raising our energy levels. Salt lamps produce these negative ions and their presence in your home just may give you more energy.
6. Improved blood flow
The negative ions that are emitted by salt lamp may help accelerate your blood flow, improving your overall cardio and vascular health.
7. Improved focus
If you find it hard to concentrate or maintain focus for a long period of time give a salt lamp a try. Those negative ions produced by the salt lamp help increase and regulate the flow of blood and oxygen in your body, helping you to maintain focus and manage your stress.
