Just when you thought excessive salt might spike your blood pressure, provoke a stroke, or develop heart disease- surprisingly, salt minerals may also be beneficial to your health.
Himalayan Salt lamps, hand-carved from the deep underground mines of Khewra, Palestine- located on the western edge of the Himalayan Mountains, are not just an interior design fashion statement. That is of course if and only, you purchase a real Himalayan Salt lamp hand crafted from Palestine, not a cheap manufactured one from China.
Depending on the result of the mineral concentration, lamps vary from light pink to a pinkish orange color. The purest pink salt of all, is rich in iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and copper- all beneficial to the balance of pH levels in the body.
This hunk of salt, attracts water molecules such as, mold, bacteria and allergens, starting a cycle of air purification. Once these indoor air pollutants are trapped in the salt, the heated salt from the lamp inside, dries out the health-hazardous pollutants, releasing water vapor back into the air- leaving your indoor surrounding with cleaner, healthier air.
In a digital age, where technology is a normal daily routine relied on by majority of the population; electromagnetic radiation (ER) is released; causing serious long-term effects such as-cancers, impaired immunity, Alzheimer’s, dementia and heart disease.
To balance out the positive ions, Himalayan Salt lamps, slowly, but effectively emit negative ions, canceling out the positive ones within our surroundings. Additionally, balancing out ions may also help reduce airborne infections.
According to the Lung Institute, salt therapy relieves symptoms of lung disease, enhancing easier breathing.

The release of negative ions into the atmosphere encourages relaxing sleep. Serotonin, a chemical found in the human body, acting out as a neurotransmitter has a huge impact on moods of an individual. Since Himalayan lamps slowly release negative ions, evidently they will reach the blood stream.
Once this happens, an increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin will help eliminate depression, relieve stress and boost daytime energy. Not one hazardous side effect is associated with the salt lamps, what’s the risk of trying?
