But how exactly can you use Himalayan salt lamps to really reap these benefits for yourself?

There are a few different ways to really make the most out of your Himalayan salt lamps. Whether you have already purchased a Himalayan salt lamp or are looking to introduce one into your home, read on for 3 of the best ways to experience the benefits of these incredible ancient crystals.

Using Himalayan salt lamps to purify the air and reduce allergy symptoms

Do you suffer from asthma, respiratory issues, hay fever or other allergy symptoms? This could be due to dust particles and other allergens that can linger in the air throughout our homes.

A Himalayan salt lamp works by purifying the air around us, as they absorb these microscopic particles of dust, mold and mildew. This helps to reduce the airborne bacteria that commonly causes these irritating allergy symptoms. The Himalayan salt lamps then generate pure, fresh air for us to breathe instead!

If you suffer from allergy symptoms yourself, consider placing a Himalayan salt lamp in the areas in which you spend the most time. This could be your bedroom, living room or even your office.

Using Himalayan salt lamps as a children’s night light to assist with bed-wetting and better sleep

If you have young kids in your household, it’s likely they will experience issues with broken sleep patterns and/or bed-wetting at some stage in their early lives. These issues can be incredibly stressful and frustrating for both parents and child, leading to anxiety and lack of sleep which can lead to mood swings and behavioural issues.

Himalayan salt lamps can be a huge help as a natural night light, emitting a soothing warm orange glow to assist with better sleep. Himalayan salt lamps have also been known to help control issues of bed-wetting, with young children feeling protected and more confident with the amber light washing over them.

Using Himalayan salt lamps to combat positive ions 

Do you ever find yourself experiencing headaches, mood swings, stress or tension when you spend too much time surrounded by electronics? Whether it’s your office computer, mobile phone or the living room television, these electronic gadgets all emit a high volume of positive ions which can have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing when we are exposed to them in large doses.

A Himalayan salt lamp has the exact opposite effect, by generate negative ions instead. Negative ions are what we experience when we are outdoors and surrounded by nature – it’s that fresh, crisp air that is usually found at the bottom of a waterfall or by crashing waves at the beach. Introducing a Himalayan salt lamp into the home helps to replicate this pure air in your very own environment, as the negative ions help to balance out the positive ions, creating a happier and healthier household.

There are so many great ways to use Himalayan salt lamps to create a more positive environment in your very own home. To start experiencing the benefits of Himalayan salt lamps for yourself, check out our range of natural and crafted lamps in a range of different sizes to suit any space!
