Last year for my birthday I received a Himalayan Salt Lamp. This was an awesome gift for a natural enthusiast, like me. Salt lamps are simply large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small bulb inside generating amazing benefits.  I was so excited to take it home, plug it in and write a blog post. Unfortunately, I delayed and the lamp didn’t come out the box until recently.  I have good reasons why I didn’t fully engage myself in the salt lamp experience right away.

One being the energy in my house was not right and I knew the benefits of this lamp.  I wanted to be mindful and careful where I placed the lamp to maximize the effectiveness. I have since shifted the energy in my home and placed the lamp in my bedroom to clear the air.

I’m going to share with you some of the salt lamp health benefits and recommend that it’s placed somewhere you can fully experience the glow and effectiveness of its energy. I say this because salt lamps are natural negative ion generators. According to WebMD, negative ions creates positive vibes .

How? Organically negative ions occur in nature and they are often created by lightning storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. In those moments think of how your mood changes when nature shows itself to you.  Do you often feel energized, relaxed, renewed or refreshed? Yes, right.

In opposite we interact with positive ions more often than we want to on our phones, using computers and watching televisions. Think of your mood when on those devices. Do you feel tired, exhausted and/or stressed? Absolutely, negative ions ain’t loyal. 

Now, let me take you back to our chemistry days but keep it simple.  We were taught balance when the negative ions bond together with the positive ions. This is how the salt lamp cleanses the air, it’s called when opposites attract.  Not always true for people but works for our lamp.

The Himalayan salt lamp will purify the air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal.

This is all so interesting to me, that’s the nerd girl coming out. Now you see why I was so excited about my lamp. I bet you’re going to look for a salt lamp! No shame and I’m happy to share my knowledge with you. 

Anything that can clear the air, promote calmness and relaxation with a better quality of sleep bring it to me. Seriously, we have to enjoy the space we live in and learn how to shift the energy naturally.

Purchasing a salt lamps is a more affordable option but you can also research negative ionizer machine to have a greater range and effectiveness in your space.  Here’s to a better quality of life and clean air.
