Salt Rock Lamps, have been popular within the new age and Ayurveda community for a while. But they’ve been gaining popularity in high end spa’s and now you can have them in your home. Not only are they a wonderful decorative piece but they have some amazing health benefits as well.
1. Salt Rock Lamps help clean and remove odors from the air.
Through a process called hygroscopy, they attract water molecules and other particulates into the salt rock lamp and keep them trapt in the salt. This can lead to a reduction in allergy and Asthma symptoms. Many people start noticing a difference in 1-2 weeks.
2. Removes positive charged Ions:
While this sounds like a bad thing, these ions are created by electronic devices and can cause some peoples Cilia to become less effective which can make breathing more difficult. You might have noticed this effect if you’ve ever been to a space with a rock salt room.
3. Increases Energy Levels
Just like a fresh air, or a walk through the forest can energize you physically and emotionally, salt rock lamps can have a similar effect. When you’re in nature there’s a grounding effect removing the positive Ions. Salt rock lamps have the same effect, try it out by placing it in your bed room and seeing how you feel after 1-2 weeks.
4. It helps combat electromagnetic radiation generated by our electronic devices.
Have you ever gotten a headache from staring at your computer screen for felt extra tired after being surrounded by electronics? This is a result from the EM radiation. While not dangerous in the same way other types of radiation are, long term exposure has been linked to a variety of issues. The salt rock lamps help neutralize EM and work as a “ground” for this type of radiation.
5. Improves Mood and Concentration
Another side effect of our constant exposure to EM and Positive Ions is a lack of oxygen and blood flow to the vital parts of our body. By removing these from your environment your blood flow and hormone production will improve causing a boost in mood and make it easier to concentrate. It’s also been shown to help improve the quality of sleep.
