A lamp? Made of salt? Wait, what?

You read that right! Himalayan salt lamps have gained massive popularity in recent years. Sure, this trendy light piece makes a great statement in a room, but these lamps are more than just decoration.
The lamp is essentially a large piece of pure Himalayan salt with a small bulb fitted inside it. When lit, it offers a warm, peachy glow and is beneficial to both your home and your body. Don’t worry, we’ll explain.
Here are the top 4 reasons you need a Himalayan salt lamp in your life. After reading this, you might be surprised at just what it can do.


This is probably the most known benefit of the Himalayan salt lamp. It generates negative ions, removing dust, smoke, pollen, and other pollutants in the air. Not only that, but it also balances and neutralizes the air we breathe.


Have you ever wondered why being in the great outdoors, such as the beach or mountains, can make you feel at peace? Nature helps increase energy levels and relieve stress, and that’s because negative ions are abundant. In the same way, having a Himalayan salt lamp can help re-energize and revitalize the body.


Overexposure to positive ions in the air can reduce the supply of blood and oxygen to the brain, resulting in irregular sleeping patterns. These lamps can help reverse that problem. Just leave it on as you snooze (like a night light!) for better quality of sleep.


Himalayan salt lamps filter out mold, mildew and the like from the air, purifying what we inhale. In fact, these lamps can help people with asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory ailments. Place it where you spend most of your day, and you’ll notice the difference in a week!
