Whether you battle chronic sinus conditions, want a natural way to freshen the air in your house, or are just looking for something to bring a warming light to your home, then you just check the amazing qualities that Himalayan Salt Lamps have to offer. These beautiful powerhouses of salt not only provide warmth and comfort, but have real health benefits to offer as well. I will share with you 10 of the top qualities they have to offer, and hopefully answer some of the questions you may have.
1. Salt Lamps Cleanse and Deodorize the air
Many people ask how these lamps can accomplish the same thing as many expensive (and loud) pieces of equipment. The secret is this, Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. As the HPS lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.
2. Reduce Allergy & Asthma Symptoms
Because Himalayan salt lamps remove microscopic particles of dust, pet dander, mold, mildew and the like from the surrounding air, placing a lamp or two in the rooms where you spend the most time can seriously cut back on allergy symptoms. Even people who suffer from asthma should notice a big difference after a week or two.
