Back to the topic:   Why Himalayan Salt Lamps are so popular

This wellness product is made of pink salt crystals. This salt is used in everything, but best known as  ̋salt therapy in your spa’s.

Himalayan salt lamps have gained popularity in the past few years and it is hard to walk into a health spa without seeing several. They are scattered thoughout hoome decoration magazines and there is no quesiton they have become “The Thing”.

Today thay are widely available for purchase for home use. Himalayan salt lamps are an attractive addition to any room in your home. In Addition to aesthetics, some people claim that these lamps can remove chemical pollutants from the air, because salt has a net positive ionic charge and attracts water molecules from the environment.

Here is a list of several assumptions for the benefits of these lamps: (Take these with a grain of salt – pun intended)

· Purify the air- There is no hard evidence that a Himilyan Salt Lamp will mproved air quality in your home or office. However people swear by them, and I can say that since I purchased y first lamp and placed it in my home office the air does feel cris & fresh. I was skeptical, and it may just be my imigination, but I bought another one for my bedroom, so yes I am sold.

People who use these lamps say that these salty carps remove dust, pollen and other pollutants.  When you turn on your lamp, these pollutants stay and do not fly in the air for you to inhale.  Then the lamp is heated by the bulb, water vapor is released into the air, but the carp salt will keep the harmful molecules. Smarter people than I can share the science, all I know is that anyone who walks into my home office can tell a notible difference.

· Useful for people with asthma, allergies and respiratory problems– there is no concrete evidence. This claim is based on the practice of improving chronic respiratory problems – halotherapy.

A study where halotherapy was used showed that the inflammatory effects of these patients were reduced.  However, no study provides support to demonstrate the efficacy of halotherapy

With the purification of the air from the Himalayan lamp, some positive effects have been reported by some people who suffered from hay fever, asthma and other respiratory complications, air purification, odor reduction, removal of soot, Seasonal depression disorder, some versions of depression,Chronic fatigue, Strengthening immunity, improvement on sleep.

·Better sleep- 
These lamps can create a better atmosphere for sleeping, with its pink shade making the ambience more subtle and more relaxing.

Several studies have examined these effects, but testing for this theory should be done first.

· help reduce the effect of electromagnetic radiation-

Electromagnetic radiation from our phones, computers and televisions that emit huge amounts of positive ions. It threatens our health and the quality of our lives.

And if you have a Himalayan salt lamp as mentioned earlier, it converts positive ions into negative ones, this process helps our well-being.

· Himalyan Salt Lamps improves your skin-

–  The main purpose of these lamps is to attract light into your home which will beautify the atmosphere and give a feeling of comfort and calm. Many people buy them just because of their appearance because they have a very attractive design.

They come in many shapes and colors to suit every style of your home interior. But you still can’t put them in any part of the home, and expect them to give freshness and beauty and style.

Where not to put Himalayan salt lamps

Here are a few locations where you should not place these lamps for inconvenience or your safety:

· Near the water– like any other electric lamp near water, this one can be dangerous, so be careful. I shouldn’t have to say this, but I do anyway.

· places with high humidity– such a place can cause the salt to melt in the crystals. it has a somewhat similar effect as when you leave a lamp on top of a TV or other device that heats up.

· Near children or pets– it often happens that they are restless and break it,  so be careful

A small recommendation, be careful who you buy these lamps from, because many manufacturers do not use salt crystals that come from the Himalayas. Be careful not to buy a  fake lamps, unfortunately they are everywhere not.
