As of lately, the surge in the use of salt lamps has increased across the globe so I want to investigate the validity behind it.
Cause they are beautiful was just not enough reason for me to own one so I investigated and found gazillion reasons why they work and how beneficial they are to any household.
While I know that neither you or I have the time to read gazillion reasons, so I condensed this the top reason reasons that you should start using salt lamps.
7 Reasons Why Every House Should Use a Salt Lamp
1. Salt lamps create a soothing surrounding:
Salt lamps come in various sizes and they provide a cosy ambience to any room. Salt lamps are differentiated based on the weight and the colour. The colour of the salt lamp is the personal choice. Some match the room colours and some their favourite colour. When the salt lamps are larger, they have bigger and broader ionisation process. You can decorate the room to have a soothing and pleasant ambience or try to balance the ions by spreading the multiple salt lamps. Having a salt lamp next to the bed also gives you great comfort and if it is an orange salt lamp, then it gives a dim lighting that just enough if you needed some light in your room while asleep.
2. Salt lamps provide clean air
Himalayan Salt lamps clean the air using a process called hygroscopy. Hygroscopy is the process by which a substance attracts the water from the surrounding environment. When water is absorbed, the impurities in the air are also absorbed and attracted towards the salt. This a great and natural way to get clean and odourless air.
3. Salt lamps may enable better sleep
In this digital age, we are living in a sea of electromagnetic radiations. Every gadget does solve a human problem but emits a whole lot of radiations. The big corporate and blue chip companies hide the radiation levels that we are exposed to and fail to define the effects of the radiations. Many doctors’ today advice not to have electronic gadgets in the bedrooms since the gadgets emit electronic radiations. Constant exposure to electronic gadgets increases the stress levels and effects sleep. Himalayan Salt Lamps emit negative ions which neutralise the environments by pairing with the radiations. Since the negative ions help reduce the radiation effects, you are bound to get a better sleep.
4. Salt lamps reduce stress levels
Salt lamps provide the soothing light effect which helps to reduce your stress level. Also, as noted in point # 4, salt lamps enable better sleep, and when the sleep levels are improved, then stress levels are reduced.
5. Salt lamps increase energy levels
Negative ions generated by the salt lamp are better for the human body. They help to improve the blood flow to the brain which gives you a sharp mind and improves your overall physical health. Many times people sitting in front of the computer feel the fatigue. It is better to keep a salt lamp on your computer desk so that the radiations generated by the computer are reduced and hence your energy level is increased.
6. Salt lamps are environment-friendly
The natural composition of the lamp makes it environment-friendly. Also, tThe means through which the lamps are being constructed are quite green as well. Lastly, with the reserves that Himalayan pink salt comes from estimated to last another 350 years at the current rate of mining, this makes salt lamps your choice for an environment-friendly source of lighting.
7. Salt lamps provide other benefits
As indicated in few points above, salt lamps help to clean the air and in many cases where people are being treated for asthma; salt lamps have helped people with respiratory problems recover from the breathing disorders. In addition, the colour of the salt lamp also plays a major role for our health, like the pink salt lamp stimulates emotions and love. Orange salt lamp helps the nervous systems.
