Himalayan Salt Lamps - What are the Benefits?

Miners who work deep below the earth's surface in the Himalayan Salt mines rarely suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. This is because they spend their days in an environment saturated with negative ions, which Himalayan Salt releases naturally. The air we breathe every day is filled with negative and positive ions and, in order to maintain a healthy living atmosphere, these negative and positive ions must remain in balance. Unfortunately, many of the conveniences of modern life, such as our electronic devices and heating and cooling systems, produce an abundance of positive ions which throw the air we breathe completely out of balance. That, in turn, can contribute to the development of allergies, asthma, stress, insomnia and other sleep disorders, sinus and migraine headaches, and a host of other health problems for many individuals.

As the world's foremost natural air ionizer and purifier, Himalayan Salt serves as a corrective balance against the flood of toxins that often permeates the air we breathe. You can help counter the undesirable health effects of electronic devices and nature’s allergens, reducing the stress on your body and purifying the air in your environment, with the extraordinary healing properties of Himalayan Salt Lamps.

Many lavish spas around the world have constructed Himalayan Salt Caves that mimic the Himalayan Salt mines, and clients pay hundreds of dollars to undergo various Himalayan Salt therapies at these facilities. While these types of facilities are wonderful and definitely worth experiencing, most of us do not have the time or the financial means to visit a spa for therapy of this kind on a regular basis. This is why the popularity and desirability of Himalayan Salt Lamps has skyrocketed!

A Himalayan Salt Lamp is a chunk of Himalayan Crystal Salt that has been mined and attached to a sturdy base made of wood or some other durable material. These Salt Lamps range in size from 3 lbs to 60 lbs. or more! The Salt Lamp is drilled out at the center of the base underneath the lamp, to provide a space for a light source to be introduced. Adding a light inside a Himalayan Salt Lamp warms the salt from within and facilitates the release of negative ions from the Himalayan Salt into the atmosphere.

By utilizing negative ion-generating Himalayan Salt Lamps in your home, office, or anywhere else you spend time in your daily life, you can help alleviate symptoms caused by allergies, asthma, and a host of other conditions. In addition, Himalayan Salt Lamps are aesthetically pleasing to look at and create an environment filled with positive energy. Many people find that placing several Salt Lamps in a particular room or space where they spend time lends an even greater benefit, both in terms of physical health and mood enhancement. Himalayan Salt Lamps come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and designs to accommodate any size or style room you wish to ionize.

As with most natural products, not all Himalayan Salt goods are of equal quality and value. Many substandard manufacturers and exporters (and, ultimately, their worldwide re-sellers) utilize Himalayan Crystal Salt that is mined near the tops of the Himalayan Mountains – most likely because this is easier and less costly to physically obtain.

It is of great importance that the Himalayan Crystal Salt you utilize is mined from deep below the earth’s surface, in the mines of the Himalayan Mountains, often at depths of a mile or more underground. This yields the purest, most mineral rich – and thus, most beneficial – crystal salt with aesthetically vibrant orange, red and pink colors!

Himalayan Salt is one of the most valuable natural products available on the market today. We have received a ton of feedback from satisfied customers, informing us that the Salt Lamps they purchased have helped tremendously in relieving their allergy and asthma symptoms, and even insomnia and other sleep disorders. However, don’t just take my word for it. Give it a try and see if your home and your body aren’t healthier and happier with this new lifestyle addition! 

Size Matters! How to Pick the Appropriate Salt Lamp for Your Environment

The size of the Salt Lamp you purchase should correspond with the size of the room you wish to ionize. The bigger the room or space, the bigger the Salt Lamp you should utilize in order to achieve the maximum benefits! The following guide will help you estimate what size Salt Lamp will work best.

Note: If a room calls for a 40 - 60 pound Salt Lamp, for example, you could also achieve the same ionization by using (4 - 6) 10 pound Salt Lamps within the space. Many people prefer this, as it allows them flexibility in enhancing the visual beauty of the room by spreading the Salt Lamps around, or even mixing and matching different size lamps.

(Mini) 3-5 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 8x8 sq. feet

(Small) 6-8 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 10x10 sq. feet

(Medium) 9-11 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 12x12 sq. feet

(Large) 12-15 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 14x14 sq. feet

(Extra Large) 16-20 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 15x15 sq. feet

(Jumbo) 21-25 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 16x16 sq. feet

(Extra Jumbo) 30-40 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 20x20 sq. feet

(Super Jumbo) 40-60 lb. Salt Lamp ---> 25x25 sq. feet

These estimates represent the MINIMUM size Himalayan Salt Lamp that should be used for the corresponding room size. You can always add as many extra Salt Lamps as you like, whether you feel you need additional ionization and cleansing, or to achieve the desired visual look you want for your space.

Himalayan Salt Lamp Color and Shape 

No two Himalayan Salt Lamps will ever be exactly the same shape, size, or color. They naturally contain veins, cracks and striations that make each lamp individually unique. The colors range from almost pure white, to light orange, to at times a deep dark orange that is almost red. Weight and size will vary, and we only give approximations and averages. Each Himalayan Salt Lamp is truly a one-of-a-kind item.
