5 Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

Not only are these lamps visually appealing, but they have a number of health benefits for everyone.


  • Purify and deodorise the air

Salt is naturally hydroscopic. When heated, Himalayan Salt lamps absorb water vapour in the air. Naturally the air around us contains tiny particles of pollen, dust, mold and mildew within the water vapour. The water vapour is absorbed by the Himalayan Salt lamp and in turn captures the nasties that get stuck the lamp. As a result, it is recommended that you wipe down your Himalayan salt lamp once a week to remove these impurities.

  • Reduce allergy and asthma symptoms

Dust, pollen, animal dander and mold are all well known causes of allergies. They also agitate the lungs resulting in increased asthmatic symptoms. As Himalayan salt lamps purify the air, they remove these particles from our environment and aid in keeping lung irritants out of the air.

  • Reduces Electromagnetic Radiation

All electronics today release electromagnetic frequencies into the air. From your kettle to your laptop, they all release a certain amount of electromagnetic radiation. These frequencies all carry positive ions. Because Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions, they help to counteract the positive ions released from these electronics.

  • Increased energy levels

Positive ions are known to have a negative effect on our bodies and minds. Negative ions have the opposite effect. The same way that one feels refreshed and invigorated in nature (nature is full of negative ions), Himalayan salt lamps are believed to have a similar impact on us.

  • Improved Sleep

Positive ions lead to decreased oxygen and blood flow to the brain resulting in irregular sleep patterns. If you are someone who needs to sleep in total darkness, you can switch off your Himalayan salt lamp at bed time. Just leave them on during the day so that the can work their magic.
