Himalayan salt enthusiasts are typically very nature-minded individuals with organic health management habits.
While virtually all of the products we provide here at the Himalayan Salt Shop support these efforts, one particular offering stands out as the optimal accessory for holistic restorative therapy: Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps.
This striking home accent piece, which resembles an unadorned ingot of pure Himalayan salt and exudes a bright pink color, transforms everyday interior spaces into soothing, naturalistic environments ripe for physical and psychological healing.
These qualities, among many others, make Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps perhaps the most popular item among consumers looking for unique decor that does more than impress guests.
Air purification with Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps
Like all genuine Himalayan salt products, these lighting fixtures offer extensive health benefits via their demonstrable air purification powers.
Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps support an all-natural process called hygroscopy, during which water molecules circulating the air gravitate toward and make contact with an absorbent object, which then commences the evaporation process.
How exactly does this phenomenon benefit customers? Himalayan rock salt products attract suspended H20 droplets and the irritants contained within them, eventually dispersing any water present and depositing formerly airborne substances on their surfaces for easy cleanup.
In addition to facilitating hygroscopy, Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps actually produce negative ions in the air to counteract the harmful positive ions modern electronic devices emit. These positively charged particles actually exacerbate existing health conditions and have been known to cause various minor ailments.
These disparate forms of organic air purification can have an immense impact on customers and help them address symptoms associated with a number of significant health issues, including:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder
The prospect of overcoming these disruptive conditions prompts many to decorate their homes with Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps.
Allergies and Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps
Many of our customers wade into the Himalayan salt marketplace in search of treatment for allergy-related rhinitis, something more than 50 million Americans deal with annually. This therapy has roots that date back centuries to 2700 B.C., when Chinese healers published a seminal medical text mentioning the curative power of salt.
Today, many individuals use the sediment and its many forms to treat respiratory conditions of all kinds, from allergies to asthma. The processes of hygroscopy and negative ionization make this possible, eliminating irritants that become lodged in nasal passages and lungs.
Anxiety and Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps
In addition to offering health benefits for allergy sufferers, Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps produce other core benefits for owners. In particular, they can help individuals struggling with anxiety.
While these accessories cannot replace medication or therapy, they can facilitate general relaxation, something that often escapes those dealing with anxiety. The secret lies in the warm pink glow that all Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps create. These items, which also emit tones of brown, orange and yellow, calm customers dealing with anxiety. Additionally, some scientific evidence shows that the negative ionization process reduces stress as well.
Harnessing organic healing power
With these and other benefits in play, customers new to Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps often ask, "What makes these fixtures so powerful?" It all comes down to their rich crystalline composition. Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps are crafted using genuine, unaltered sediment harvested from the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan - the lone source for this curative element.
The salt collected from this site, which encompasses more than two-dozen tunnels, 11 different subterranean levels and dates back to the 13th century, contains 84 different minerals that, together, support hygroscopy and negative ionization when heated. The material makes it way from Khewra to customer homes relatively unchanged. Craftspeople simply carve the salt, attach a base and install a 15-watt light bulb to support heating.
Selecting the right Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp
Genuine Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps feature dark pink coloration and tight, dust-free surfaces. The fixtures sold here at the Himalayan Salt Shop comes in four primary sizes:
- 5-7 Pounds: These models facilitate a protection area of 10x10 feet and, thus, work best in smaller spaces.
- 9-11 Pounds: Supporting a protection area of 12x12 feet, these fixtures fit best in large bedrooms.
- 12-15 Pounds: These lamps can protect spaces as large as 14x14 feet, making them ideal for most living rooms.
- 40-50 Pounds: The behemoth lamps in this class can cover areas of up to 30x30 feet or the size of a recreation room.
We also offer USB and night light Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp models, which create smaller protective fields.
Maintaining Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps
These therapeutic home decor pieces require virtually no maintenance, apart from the occasional cleaning. That said, they are susceptible to water damage.
Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps exposed to environments with high humidity or dunked in water vapor may “sweat” - a process that promotes surface erosion which can lead to reduced quality.
Customers who manage to keep their items away from water can keep these unique accessories for generations.
Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps in the home
These healing fixtures, which can improve the air quality in one's home, may seem too good to be true to today's customers, most of whom are conditioned to weigh the benefits against the drawbacks when purchasing products for the home.
This exercise is unnecessary when it comes to purchasing Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps. Why? There are literally no downsides to installing these lighting fixtures. Natural Himalayan Salt Lamps are all organic, meaning their crystalline structures pose no harm to children or household pets.
