Himalayan salt is growing in popularity, with many people now making the switch to experience the health and nutrient benefits it has to offer. But what about Himalayan salt lamps?
We believe that Himalayan salt lamps can be just as beneficial to your household as Himalayan salt. Not only do they make a beautiful addition to any space, but what most people don’t know is that they are incredibly helpful for so many different things. Here are just 3 different reasons as to why you should purchase a Himalayan salt lamp (or 3, or 4!) for your home.
Improve sleeping patterns
Himalayan salt lamps are perfect for improving our sleeping patterns, especially for families with young children. In today's modern world, kids and teenagers spend their nights on their phones, tablets, tv’s and other electronic devices before bed.
Researches show that different colours of light affect the body in different ways. This is why your doctor will ask “do you use electronics before bed?” if you ever visit them to discuss your sleeping concerns.
Doctors often recommend avoiding blue light after sunset because it can interfere with rhythm and disrupt sleep hormones. Unfortunately, many light sources these days especially electronic devices emit this blue light that can be detrimental to our sleep.
Himalayan salt lamps, on the other hand, offer a warm orange glow. They replicate the kind of light you experience from other natural light sources, like a campfire or candlelight. Salt lamps can help with neutralising the effect of electronics due to the colour of the lamps. This is why Himalayan salt lamps are so beneficial for sleep time!
Improve air quality
Himalayan salt lamps are renowned for improving air quality. Think of them as an all-natural air purifier!
Due to the hygroscopic properties found in Himalayan salt lamps, they can also improve the air in other ways too. For example, they are known to be able to attract pollutants in the air like dust or mites, which can greatly assist with people suffering from asthma or allergies.
Improve overall health
If better sleep and cleaner air aren’t enough to convince you, here are just a selection of commonly reported health benefits that are experienced from Himalayan salt lamps:
- Improvement of breathing problems due to the air purification.
- Fewer colds and flu that are born from air viruses.
- Maximised relaxation, as well as less anxiety and stress.
- Improving the ability to work and concentrate for longer lengths of time around electronics like computers.
- Fewer migraines and headaches.
- Reduced pain/ symptoms from arthritis and rheumatism.
- Lessen the symptoms of skin diseases.
- A better overall feeling of health.
In order to make the most out of your Himalayan salt lamp, make sure you place it in a location where you spend the majority of your time. For example, your coffee table, bedside table, kitchen, or office. This is so that you can experience the fresher air it brings into the space!
