Himalayan salt helps us drop high blood pressure down, plus it eases food digestion. You probably wonder whether Himalayan salt can do wonders outside the kitchen as well.
This mineral-packed salt is hand-mined from high up in the Himalayan mountains, and it is distributed all around the world. The pinky salt comes in several forms. The one you eat has less sodium when compared to regular table salt, but in this article we shall discuss about a slightly different form of Himalayan pink salt.
Himalayan salt lamps
It is time to get some light in the room
Nature has some nice ways to keep us fresh and revitalized. Regardless of whether it is relaxing next to a wonderful waterfall or walking barefoot along the beach, we would be free and happy like birds. If only we could fly and enjoy every bit of the nature.
So, what is so special about pretty landscapes, green grass and fresh springs?
It is the negative ions.
These are releases in nature, but you can almost mimic them in the walls of your cozy home. Himalayan lamps can transform your room both chemically and physically. They are not only a fancy way to give your room a warm glow. You will enjoy a lot more than that.
Positive and negative ions are all around us. These are charged molecules that float in the air, and you cannot notice them. Positive ions are the ‘electronic smog’ that may sound strange, but it is still dangerous for both your mental and physical health. They are charged by your super-big TVs, smart phones, telephones, microwaves, computers, and practically any other electronic wave.
According to the World Health Organization, electronic smog is ‘one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences.’ They also stated that general awareness should be brought at higher level. Many studies have confirmed that our brains are attacked by 20 times more frequencies than it is considered as normal. Such frequencies trigger mental health problems, difficulty sleeping, nerve disorders, allergy symptoms, and a lot more.
So positive ions have nothing to do with being ‘positive.’ They are released by everything that marks the 21st century modern living, and you need these neutralized as soon as possible. You are lucky enough to enjoy some available ways of giving your home a neutralized or negative ion impact.
Negative ions are present in nature: in the nearest forest, at the beach and mostly near huge waterfalls. They stimulate the flow of oxygen to the brain, increase our mental alertness and give us an immense energy boost. But, you cannot have waterfalls in your home.
What can you do to get these negative ions in your home? Positive ions keep flowing into your home, since you like your TV, turn on your router, or can watch a movie without your microwave popcorn. There is a way to neutralize these positive ions, and bring a fresh power in your home.
Himalayan salt lamps
Also referred to as ‘Vitamins of the Air,’ Himalayan salt lamps are blocks of pure salt that is left behind ancient oceans. They come with a small bulb (or candle) inside, and they offer a lot more than plain light. Himalayan salt lamps provide a negative-ion atmosphere and all the great benefits that you get as a bonus.
The heat from the lamp inside warms up the crystals, and stimulates the emission of negative ions. Salt is actually hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water from the surrounding. You will notice how the lamp becomes damp or wet in humid rooms. The heat causes the water to evaporate and thus creates negative ions. It is at this point when these ions start doing their job.
