What is Himalayan Pink Salt?
Himalayan Rock Salt was formed over 250 million years ago after an ancient sea became landlocked and eventually evaporated leaving behind a huge salt deposit. It is the purest form of rock salt on Earth. Buried deep within the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, the salt that is exhumed today is still what it was some 250 million years ago, pure & free from all modern contaminants.
Why does the salt have an Orange/Pink coloring?
Unlike refined table salt which is processed beyond belief, Himalayan Pink Salt is natural in all forms & has a pinkish coloring due to the 84 minerals & trace elements found within.
What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp?
Himalayan Salt Lamps, Salt Lamps or Crystal Salt Lamps as they are commonly referred to, is a hand carved solid salt crystal that is hollowed out to fit a small low powered light bulb.
How do they work?
The salt lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, and as it does, it also takes positive ions with them. By gently heating the salt crystal with the low powered light bulb, the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air. It also releases negative ions that combat the positive ions in our environment that are caused by pollution, dust, electronic devices, animal fur, pollen etc. thereby improving our air quality.
What are the health benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps?
When lit, the lamp radiates a soft warm amber glow, like a campfire. The heated Salt Crystal emits negative ions which trap air pollutants, allergens & dust. This creates a soothing and calming affect which helps you naturally:
- Sleep better at night
- Feel less fatigued
- Reduced headaches
- Higher levels of relaxation
- Less congestion
- & an increased sense of well being
Why are Negative Ions so good for you?
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 produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
How do I care for my Himalayan Salt Lamp?
With their soft light, Himalayan Salt Lamps are designed to be left on continuously most of the day, for maximum benefit from their healing and energizing properties.
Leaving your Himalayan Salt Lamp on will avoid any residual moisture build-up, especially in humid environments. If excess moisture does appear, place something underneath your Himalayan Salt Lamp to protect surfaces and turn your Salt Lamp on or leave it out in the sun to dry it out. Himalayan Salt Lamps need extra care in extremely humid environments.
To remove dust, switch your Himalayan Salt Lamp off and wipe with a dry or damp cloth.
For storage, remove the bulb and cord and store the Himalayan Salt Lamp in an airtight plastic bag to prevent moisture absorption.
To remove the bulb, use your thumb and index finger to squeeze the metal springs on both sides and slide out, then gently release to prevent damaging the bulb.
