Not everyone has access to clean, mountain or waterfront air...especially in your inside spaces. The recycled air many of us breathe when we're inside our homes or work space can be doing more harm than good. This is especially true when we're asleep - when we're breathing more deeply as our bodies engage in restorative activities.
Himalayan Salt Lamps are one of many ways we can purify the air we're breathing into our lungs on a daily basis. Himalayan Salt creates negative ions in the air. Both positive and negative ions exist in the air that we breathe and when they occur in balanced amounts, they cancel each other out. Negative ions occur naturally (for example, we often sense them after a thunderstorm - the combination of lightning and rainfall produces negative ions...in fact any running water creates negative ions) while positive ions are primarily created by electronic sources (our cell phones, TV's, microwaves, etc) and in greater quantities can negatively impact our ability to breathe and sleep.
An overabundance of positive ions is linked with:
The neutralizing effect of negative ions benefit us in many ways:
In addition to the physical benefits Himalayan salt lamps, they create a beautiful, ambient atmosphere with their softly radiant light. A wonderful decor piece and healing accessory for the home, Himalayan Salt Lamps are a wise lifestyle choice.
