Himalayan Salt Lamps ~
In the box of the very first Himalayan Salt lamp I purchased (20 years ago) there was write up by Dick Tse on the benefits of these beautiful lamps.
It's difficult to find concrete evidence to prove the benefits claimed of Himalayan Salt lamps. However, this is certain - they add a lovely warm glow to any room that many (including myself) find relaxing. The following is being shared to give you more information on what the believed the benefits are.
Spirit of the Rock ~ Himalayan Salt Lamps
By Dick Tse
The Himalayan Salt lamps are 250,000,000 years old and are made of the salt found at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. The salt crystal lamp binds negative ions with excess positive ions. When the lamp becomes warm, through the use of a normal Christmas bulb, it absorbs moisture and the crystal becomes damp on the surface. This builds up the ion field. Through the lamp, the positively charged atmosphere of a room can be neutralized. Negative ions clean the air and create a healthier environment.
Salt crystals attract moisture and when water is evaporated through salt, it releases negative ions, the ions that are good for you. Himalayan Salt Crystal lamps work in this same manner. They draw moisture from the air and then when heated with a small bulb, release oxygen in the air.
It has been documented that these lamps help with asthma and allergies, headaches and migraines, concentration, depression, and a host of other ailments.
The light is warm and soft and can left on all the time without any ill effects.
Also, Himalayan Bath Salts, combined with essential oils, are good for eczema, skin rashes, psoriasis, and muscle spasms, and they smell delightful.
Suggested Places to Use Himalayan Salt Lamps:
Salt crystal lamps are highly suitable for constant use in any room of the house. A salt crystal lamp in your vicinity will help with your positive energy and keep the air around you healthy, clean, and naturally ionized.
Child's Room ~
Parents can place a salt crystal lamp by their child's bedside. The warm glow is very comforting, it's completely safe and works as a lovely night light, while enhancing your child's sound sleep and keeping the atmosphere clean and healthy.
A lamp at work is highly recommended. The ionization effect of the lamp interferes with the electromagnetic radiation (EMR/EMF) from the computer, thus improving your concentration and helping you to feel more refreshed. It works to minimize the effects of fatigue, stress, artificial lights, and artificial air.
For computer users, a lamp near your computer is vital. The ionization effect of the lamp interferes with the electromagnetic radiation (EMR/EMF) from the computer, thus improving your concentration and helping you to feel more refreshed.
Using the lamps in waiting rooms in clinics aids in creating a relaxing atmosphere. A salt crystal lamp, glowing in a consulting or treatment room, enhances a calm environment thus assisting with the healing process.
When recovering from an illness, a beautiful salt lamp by your beside is very comforting and will make the convalescence much easier.
Massage or Meditation Room ~
Using the lamps in a massage room keeps the air fresh and enhances the atmosphere creating an ambience of well-being.
I've loved these beautiful lamps for over 20 years and have many in my own home.
