How can Himalayan Salt Lamps make you feel refreshed?
Do you feel refreshed when you go to the beach or waterfall? Do you feel as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders?
We all feel that. Being near running water over rides our senses. But why does this happen?
The cause of this are the negative ions present around us because of the running water. These negative ions appear because of the fast action occurring in a system. They are present in lightning storms, sunlight, oceans, and waterfalls. Unsurprisingly, running water is the greatest source of negative ions in the world. Its opposite are positive ions which are harmful for our bodies but negative ions are extremely beneficial to the human body. Negative ions revitalize the cells’ metabolism, enhance immune function, purify the blood, promote sleep and healthy digestion.
Now of course, you can’t live near a waterfall or in a forest unless you are Tarzan. So what is the next best thing? Salt lamps! Salt lamps are large pieces of Himalayan salt that have a small bulb inside. They are a convenient source of negative ions that you can place throughout the vicinity of your home. You won’t have to drive all the way up to the closest source of running water whenever you are stressed again. Salt lamps mimic what a waterfall can do and they aren’t even artificial or harmful to the environment. They are just pure rock salts carved from the mountains that reside in the Himalayas.
They have a variety of benefits:
- They cancel out the positive ions being emitted from the blue light in your electronic devices like your cellphone. T.V, and computer.
- They help cleanse out the air.
- Salt lamps extract the water vapour from the air which may hold infectious mold, bacteria, and allergens.
- They emit a relaxing orange glow that benefits your sleep cycle.
- Boosts the mood and energy
- Increases focus
- Increases flow of oxygen
You can place these salt lamps throughout your house; but be cautious with humid areas. Areas of steam like dishwashers, washing machines, and showers are dangerous when using salt lamps as they may wear out quickly.
