Have you ever wondered why people set up Himalayan Salt lamps in their house or office? I did for a very long time. I associated these lamps with a 1980s hippie phase in cozy yoga studios and massage parlors. Even though I always liked the look of them, I somehow never even thought about getting one for myself. Until I actually did and loved it!
Why? Well, for one, there was a Himalayan Salt Lamp store close to my house in the city I had recently moved to and one day I checked out the lamps and saw that they are actually quite affordable. And then I realized that my newly purchased lamp created a wonderful and cozy atmosphere in our living room. Soon after I also purchased another one for our bedroom.
There are in fact many more benefits to Himalayan salt than meets the eye. So, here are ways Himalayan salt can make your life better and cozier.
Himalayan Salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. However, once a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) accelerates evaporation, they do produce negative ions. Negative ions are beneficial to our health. Why? Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
Negative Ions are said to also neutralize EMFS and reduce electromagnetic radiation.
Since we are constantly surrounded by modern-day wi-fi, cell phone towers, TVs and other electrical appliances, these things all give off a lot of electromagnetic Radiation or EMFS for short. EMF’s high positive ions have been known to reduce our serotonin levels and can cause cancer, fatigue, lathery and a host of problems we face today. Salt crystal lamps have the ability to generate negative ions and neutralize these EMF’s.

For Cold Therapy: Recommended for feet conditions, such as swollen feet and ankles. Keep tiles in the refrigerator or freezer and use as needed.
For Sauna Therapy: Just place feet on tiles when in the sauna. Heating the salt in the sauna helps to release the negative ions embedded in the foot tiles. The negative ions released into the feet move to the lungs and are easily replenished into and through the bloodstream. This has been shown to clear up skin problems such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis as well as improve chronic bronchitis and asthma, clearing up mucous, regulating the immune system with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory relief. Wipe and dry after each use.
