I found this article on Natural Living Ideas that has the title “10 reasons to have a Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp in every room of your home.” I love it! And I have to say I’m almost there. I have these lamps in my office, living room, bedrooms – not got to kitchen or bathrooms yet, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. I love the warm glow of each lamp – and each one is different!! And I’m gradually working through my family, so that everyone gets the benefits!
This article is great, in that it explains why you get health benefits from salt lamps….
Before we dive into the health benefits of using Himalayan pink salt lamps in your home, it may be helpful to first have a brief chemistry lesson:
All matter (the human body, air, water, etc) is made up of molecules which are made up of atoms which are made up of three types of particles: protons (positive charge), electrons (negative charge), and neutrons (no charge). Electrons orbit their molecules like planets revolve around a star. Occasionally an electron flies off and when it does, it leaves behind a positively-charged ion whose sole purpose in life becomes to fill the void left by its little lost electron. In other words: it wants to steal a replacement electron from another molecule. Due to differences in molecular structure (number of electrons in the outermost orbit, strength and structure of electron bonds, etc) some materials lose electrons much more easily than others.
With this basic understanding of the behaviours of positive and negative ions fresh in your mind, let’s take a look at the top 10 benefits of the Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp.
