There is more than one benefit of lighting up Himalayan salt lamps inside your homes.


Himalayan salt lamp is one of the trends that are quickly catching on because of its many perceived benefits, according to Shared. These lamps are large pieces of pure Himalayan salt that have a small light bulb or candle placed inside them.

They give a soft and warm orange glow that is believed to create negative ions in the environment. This ultimately helps fight against issues of seasonal affective disorder, otherwise known as SAD, as well as depression.

They not only battle with these issues but also provide relief from common ailments. Moreover, they provide a charming aesthetic quality to any room

1. They improve the quality of air

With their hygroscopic properties, they attract the water molecules in the air and absorb them into salt crystal. Thus, they can remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other impurities from the air.

2. They reduce allergy and asthma symptoms

These lamps will help you fight with allergies as well as any kind of respiratory ailments by removing the microscopic mold, mildew, dust, and pet dander particles from the air. It will also help those with asthma giving them fresher air to breathe.


3. They help to sleep better


Over-exposure to positive ions in the air can be one of the biggest reasons behind the lack of quality sleep. This is because of the lower amount of blood and oxygen supply to the brain, which causes irregular sleeping pattern.

The natural negative ion emitted by these lamps would help reverse this problem.

4. They increase energy levels

Positive ions are also known for draining the energy out of the body. Himalayan salt lamps will help reverse this process by producing negative ions and preventing loss of energy.

5. They enhance mood and concentration

By improving the supply of blood and oxygen to the brain and increasing the levels of serotonin, these lamps help improve our mood as well as keep us focused.

6. They neutralize radiation

Every day, we are exposed to a vast amount of electromagnetic (EM) radiation, which affects our immune system and increases stress as well as fatigue.

When Himalayan salt lamps are placed near our electronic devices, the negative ions generated by these lamps help reduce the effect of radiation.


7. They prevent static electricity


Negative ions created by these lamps will neutralize the ion particles present in the air that sometimes creates static electricity shock while accidentally touching someone.

8. They are safe for the environment

Himalayan salt lamps radiate just enough glow to illuminate the room but require very less energy as they use low-wattage bulbs or candles. So they are great for the environment as well.

9. They help during coughs

The negative ions generated by the lamp is also known for protecting us from airborne pathogens that make us sick. So, they help to alleviate coughs and other symptoms shown by the common cold.
