9 Amazing Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps! I love them so much I have them in every room. Even the powder room! www.thehealthnutmama.com

What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp?Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps - www.thehealthnutmama.com

Himalayan Salt Lamps are Big Chunks of Himalayan Salt that are chiseled & have a hole inside the bottom for a bulb, like this one. Or, a basket full of smaller pieces with a light bulb in the center like this one.

They have a beautiful pinkish-orange glow that is so soothing.

When purchasing a Himalayan Salt Lamp, make sure it is pure food grade Himalayan Salt & not made from rock salt.

When I first heard of Himalayan Salt Lamps & their benefits, I had to have one. I liked it so much that I bought one for every room. I even bought one for the powder room because I loved the warm glow that it put out. It also made the room smell of salt air! (Think Beach)

One of the most important reasons, personally, of having Himalayan Salt Lamps is for the reduction of radiation emitted from our cell phones, I-pads, computers, tv’s, etc…

I have one for each of my nightstands (because we seemed to always be on our I-pads or phones reading before bed) & one on my desk by my computer.  I also have them in the living room near the TV, in my daughter’s room (you know, they are always on their phones) & in the basement where she hangs out watching TV with her friends.

How does it work?

Himalayan Salt Lamps produce negative ions when heated.

WebMD explains some of the benefits of negative ions:

“Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”And for a whopping one in three of us who are sensitive to their effects, negative ions can make us feel like we are walking on air. You are one of them if you feel instantly refreshed the moment you open a window and breathe in fresh, humid air


What are Ions?

“An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge.”

Why is this important?

Positive ions

are created by pet dander, cigarette smoke, pollen, dust,  electronic devices like computers, TVs, smartphones, I-pads, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners. This can create illness, allergies, depression, irritability, migraines, exhaustion, moodiness, poor sleep & slow recovery from illness.

Negative ions

can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air, therefore offsetting the ill effects of the positive ions.

If you have any of the symptoms above, try a Himalayan Salt Lamp. Not only does it make you feel better, but you will love the glow that it produces.  Just looking at it calms me from a stressful day.  It reminds me of being at the spa.

    When you light them, they give out a warm, reddish-pink glow. Sellers of these decorative pieces say they do more than light up a room. They claim the lamps can boost mood, improve sleep, ease allergies, help people with asthma breathe better, and clean the air, among other benefits.

  2. I have two of these amazing lamps. I bought them because of their soothing orange glow which makes me so relax at night. But thanks for letting us know the super amazing heath benefits of them too. I got them Saltean and I’m looking forward to buy more.

    Best Regards!

    I was first attracted to these because they’re pretty but now that I’m reading about the health benefits I am anxious to get one for myself. I’m sharing this in a roundup post to publish on 12-16-17,

      Hi Joanna, I have links in my post. If you have trouble finding them, please let me know. They should be in blue & turn red when you hover over them with the mouse. Here is a link if you are having trouble.

    YES! I LOVE my sea salt lamp! I have it on the table next to the chair I usually sit in my living room and turn it on whenever I have a headache or feel like my asthma is acting up, or when I just need to chill. It’s my new favorite thing!

    • Renee' says:

      Awesome! I leave mine on all the time except for the ones in the bedroom. I leave them on during the day with the door closed & turn them off when we go to bed. I like it very dark.

      • Rachael says:

        Thank you for this great information! You said you leave yours on all the time (except at night in bedrooms)… do you leave them on even when you are not home? I would like to do that, but I am gone most of the day due to work and I am curious if it is a fire risk to have them going while I am not there to monitor them. Thanks again!

        • Renee' says:

          You are welcome! I do leave mine on all day. I am a stay at home mom, but I am gone a lot during the day. I don’t even think about it anymore. I honestly don’t think it’s any different than leaving alarm clocks plugged in or any other device. That being said, if you are unsure about it, just turn them on when you get home & leave them on until bedtime. We went on vacation recently, & I left them on, (didn’t even think about turning them off). Luckily, everything was fine. I do think the most important time to have them on is when you are there anyway. Close to where ever you spend the most time on electronic devices or watching TV. Hope this helps!

    Wow! This is so cool. I’ve never heard of one of these lamps before. I’d love to get one for our living room. The benefits sound great!

    • Renee' says:

      You will love it. I have them in every room. Especially on my nightstand by my bed & on my desk next to my computer!
