In addition providing beauty to your home, Himalayan Salt Lamps work as air ionizers that will improve the quality of the air in your home. Water vapour is always circulating in the air of any room; salt lamps attract water vapour and, as the lamp becomes saturated with water vapour, the heat from the lamp dries the moisture. Any airborne microscopic contaminants contained within the water vapour remain trapped and will not become airborne again. Every few weeks, simply turn off the salt lamp, let it cool, and rub it with a damp cloth to clean away dust and particles.
Salt lamps have a cleansing effect on the air and generate negative ions. They have also been shown to counteract the effect on electromagnetic radiation generated by televisions, computers, appliances and smart phones. Keep one next to areas where electrical activity is abundant.
Salt lamps do not emit blue light which is contained in most artificial lighting. Blue light is known to reduce melatonin production and can interfere with normal sleeping patterns. The soft pink light of a Himalayan Salt Lamp is an ideal soothing colour to look at before bedtime and may even help you get to sleep.
