Himalayan salt lamps are a staple piece in my home decor. I have one in every single room of my home in different shapes and sizes. I even have one in Spiritual Diva Hair Design which is the hair salon I own. I love the warm, soft, relaxing glow and how it clears the energetic space in each room. Just being near one makes me feel at ease. There are so many reasons to have them, and they are beautiful !!
The most well-known benefit, and why most people use them , is due to their incredible power to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and even negative energy from the air. Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of hydroscopy, which means that they attract water molecules from your environment then absorb those molecules, along with any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. When the lamp warms up from the heat generated by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, and negative energy remain locked in the salt and away from you!
In todays society, we are all living in a world with huge amounts of electromagnetic (EM) radiation, or electromagnetic smog which comes from our electronics such as television, computer, cell phone, tablet, appliances, etc. Although they may be invisible, the long term effects of EM exposure can be very serious. Exposure to EM radiation can increase stress levels, cause chronic fatigue, affect the body's immune system, and can weaken your Aura or energy field. As they emit negative ions into the air, Himalayan salt lamps work to neutralize electromagnetic radiation.
Last but not least, and my #1 reason for having them is that Himalayan salt has wonderful electrical and cleansing effects on the body and your energetic field. I often take baths with it to clear my aura of any stuck negative energy, or attachments that I absorb. Being sensitive, is a gift and a curse at the same time, because you easily take on the energy of others and the spirit world. The negative ions from salt lamps generate positive energy, make you feel more relaxed and happy, and raise your energetic vibration. Its therapeutic glow of orange hues create a natural calm, bringing the mind and body to a state of tranquility and well being. If you suffer from insomnia, have a child who is hyperactive, or who doesn't sleep, place a salt lamp on the nightstand. My son has had one since the day he was born. He is 11 now, and has never had a problem sleeping, not even as an infant. It relaxes hyperactive children, and is helpful for children with anger issues, and allergies. I often will give them as a new baby gift for these reasons, and everyone who I have given them to swears by them. You can buy them from Amazon, or I have even seen them at Homegoods. They are relatively inexpensive, but even if they were not, I would still have one in every room of my home !
