Benefits of Salt Lamps

Salt Lamps are growing in popularity and are appearing in most home decor magazines but what are Salt Lamps and are they of any benefit to you and your family?


What are the health benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps?

Aside from the aesthetic properties of a Himalayan Salt Lamp there are some serious health benefits to lighting one up in your home. Grab your goggles we are diving into a chemistry lesson!

The air we breathe consists of ions (atoms or groups of atoms) that carry either a positive or negative charge. Computers, Televisions, air conditioners, tobacco smoke, inadequate ventilation and many other by-products of modern day living produce positively ionised air, which is harmful to our health. Negatively ionised air is generated by environments such as mountains, the seaside and waterfalls and by mechanical means such as thunderstorms and gentle heat.  Rock salt lamps discharge negatively changed ions thereby re-establishing the natural state of equilibrium.


Who should use a Salt Lamp?

In a word, everyone – couldn’t we all benefit from the rebalance of the environment we work, play and sleep in?

Salt Lamps are best known for the reduction in allergies, asthma symptoms and other respiratory conditions, sleeplessness, migraines, high blood pressure, anxiety and mild depression. The natural glow is gentle, calming and soothing and many people experience a reduction in stress when using a Salt Lamp.


Where should I use my Salt Lamp?

The only room in your house that is not recommended to have a Salt Lamp is your bathroom, due to the abnormally high moisture level.

Using a Salt Lamp in your living space is not only good decor taste but it will also rebalance the positively ionised air caused by the technology used in our homes. A Salt Lamp used in a bedroom gives off a reassuring and warm glow providing comfort to both children and adults. Even your office can benefit from a Salt Lamp, the calming effects can help towards work related stress and will balance the environment in which we work.


What size do I need?

It is important to consider your room size when choosing a Salt Lamp as the emitted quantity of negative ions id correlated to the size of the lamp. If you have larger rooms you can always use more than one lamp, a well placed lamp display can be visually striking in your home.

Our 2-4kg Salt Lamp is recommended for rooms of 10 square metres, this would generally be your smaller bedroom or hall space.

The 4-6kg Salt Lamps can be used in rooms up to 20 square metres, a standard bedroom or living space.


Where do Salt Lamps come from?

Our Salt Lamps are made from crystals of natural rock salt found in deep underground mines in Kashmir, Pakistan which is the only source of true Himalayan pink salt.
