How Himalayan Salt Lamps Can Improve Your Air Quality!

Good air quality is essential for our health and wellbeing. Poor air quality can cause a range of health problems - from headaches and fatigue to more serious respiratory issues.
One natural and effective way to improve the air quality in your home is by using Himalayan salt lamps. Read on as we share exactly how these beautiful lamps can purify the air and improve your overall health and wellbeing below!
How do Himalayan salt lamps improve air quality?
The air in our home or workspace is often contaminated with things like dust, pollen and other allergens. Himalayan salt lamps are naturally hygroscopic, which means they can attract, absorb and trap these contaminants, before releasing pure air back into the environment.
Himalayan salt lamps also work by emitting negative ions into the air. Negative ions are particles that are naturally present in the air, but can become depleted due to a variety of factors, such as electronic devices, pollution, and poor ventilation. Negative ions have been shown to have a positive impact on our health, helping to reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety, boost our energy levels, and improve our sleep.
These negative ions also neutralize positively charged particles in the air, such as dust, pollen, and other pollutants. This can help to purify the air, making it fresher and easier to breathe.
How do Himalayan salt lamps help with allergies?
By trapping particles like dust, pollen and even micro pet-hair, Himalayan salt lamps can reduce airborne triggers - making them particularly helpful for people who suffer from these kinds of allergies.
How do Himalayan salt lamps help with respiratory issues?
Himalayan salt lamps may also help to improve your overall respiratory health due to their positive effect on air quality. In fact, long before Himalayan salt lamps ever existed, studies showed that salt miners (who spent days working in salt tunnels) reported above-average respiratory health. From there, people began to explore salt caves and salt therapy as a way to improve respiratory health. Himalayan salt lamps are simply a more convenient way to experience the benefits of salt therapy from your very own home.
How to use Himalayan salt lamps to improve air quality
To improve the air quality of your home, you can place a Himalayan salt lamp in the areas of your home where you spend the most time - most commonly your bedroom, living room or workspace.
Remember, the effectiveness of Himalayan salt lamps depends on the size of the lamp. The bigger the space, the bigger you’ll want your Himalayan salt lamp to be.
