You may have noticed the increasing number of orange rock-lamps popping up in stores and malls around you. And although they are a very fun and appealing thing to put in your home, they serve another purpose as well. This multi-functioning salt lamp actually helps purify the air in your home and assists in helping anxiety, allergies and other unwanted toxins.
So what actually is a salt lamp and how does it help? Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from pure Himalayan Salt. The salt is a natural negative ion generator. With all the negative and positive ions in the air, sometimes an imbalance can occur. Positive ions can form from electronics or other toxicity in the air. Negative ions are a neutralizer and cleanse the air. You can find negative ions from lightening storms, ocean waves and other natural forces. The light and salt in the lamps is what creates the negative ions. This is because salt attracts water and the water then evaporates from the heat the light source produces; during this process the negative ions form.
Some of the benefits from having an increasing amount of negative ions in the air can include more oxygen to the brain, fewer germs or bacteria in the air, fewer allergens and overall more mental alertness. This can help your anxiety as well due to the increased oxygen in your brain and the balance of ions. Technology and other toxic positive ions affect our body by sending artificial electromagnetic wavelengths with different frequency values. This creates an imbalance with the natural electromagnetic oscillation that is present on this planet. By creating this imbalance your wavelength frequency becomes imbalanced and you are left with imbalanced hormones, sleep patterns, health behaviors, etc.
Overall, these lamps are not only a beautiful thing to have in your home, but also an overall beautiful thing for your health. By eliminating some of the positive ions found in your home from technology and other factors, you are able to have cleaner air, less allergens and overall more alertness. Holistic Sound Healing can also benefit your natural frequency and cleanse your body of the technological toxins found in the air around you. It is important to take care of your mind and body by being aware of what is actually present in your space. And while purchasing your salt lamp, be sure that it is made from actual Himalayan Salt and not a knock off, as it will not have the same effects.
