How it works Himalayan Salt Lamps also release negative ions and counteract positive ions. This happens when the heat from the light bulb evaporates the water molecules. Salt lamps do not release a ton of negative ions, but enough that you will be able to feel the positive effects. Putting more than one lamp in a bigger space can increase the benefits. 

"Salt crystal is naturally hygroscopic, absorbing water molecules from the air. You will notice if your salt lamp remains unlit for long periods of time, it will begin to 'cry.' The heat from a small light bulb keeps these beautiful crystals dry and in turn releases negative ions (the healthy ones found in abundance in places like oceans, waterfalls, even your shower) into the air," according to the site. https://www.crystalmagic.com/assets/images/Himalayn%20SaltLamp_Obelisk1.jpg
Beautiful and relaxing are the 2 main words I use to describe this Salt Lamp. It creates a very peaceful ambiance in the home and I find it to be therapeutic when I do my yoga. It is well made, and has a good weight to it. This salt lamp also has different sets of lighting to adjust from dim, medium and bright. It creates a beautiful atmosphere in any room and I love it.

“The lady doth protest too much…” This article suggests to me that the writer or those who have paid to writer has a hidden agenda. And I’ll cite that science has made our world into a shit hole where we are now browbeaten into accepting and trusting conventional gangster snake oil medicine, pesticides, herbicides, fluoride, mercury laced vaccines, etc., and so on, all of which is touted to be good for us but which is poison to us while we are ridiculed and discouraged by science “experts” from using natural solutions. Science and scientists have betrayed us. And why? Because they are funded by those who want to continue to poison us. If the writer of this article is in earnest, then the writer has been thoroughly, successfully indoctrinated into serving on the wrong side of history.
In January of this year, Michael's issued a recall on some of their salt lamps sold under the Lumière brand. Rest assured, the issue and recall had nothing to do with the Himalayan salt itself but reported hazards with the dimmer switch and plug. If you’re looking to purchase a lamp, talk to the retailer and make sure it has been assembled properly and that the piece you’re interested in was not included in the recall. https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/g/BDYAAOSwNMVagVQN/s-l225.jpg
Himalayan salt lamps purify the air through hygroscopy. The salt lamp attracts water from surrounding areas and absorbs the water vapor molecules along with any particles that those molecules may be carrying. The light inside of the lamp helps the salt to warm up, making that water evaporate back into the air while the unwanted, foreign particles stay trapped inside the salt. Science is pretty neat, am I right? https://image.slidesharecdn.com/7tipstoidentifyfakehimalayansaltlamps-161213103834/95/7-tips-to-identify-fake-himalayan-salt-lamps-2-638.jpg?cb

When it comes to buying Himalayan pink salt lamps, take into consideration the size of the room in which you wish to use your lamp. The coverage of a salt lamp is determined by the size of the salt crystal. For the average-sized bedroom, a smaller lamp is usually adequate, but if you’re looking to use it in a larger area like your living room, you want to go bigger. On average, to effectively cleanse the air of a space, you need one pound of salt rock for every 16 square feet (four feet by four feet) area. If needed, you can always use multiple salt lamps spread out in a single room. https://lampslightsandshade.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Salt-Lamps-vs-Air-Purifiers-Which-One-is-Better.jpg

As I described earlier, a Himalayan salt lamp by its salty nature is able to easily attract water vapor to it. With this water vapor often comes indoor air pollutants, including allergens, mold and bacteria. When the water hits the heated lamp, the salt traps the pollutants but releases the water vapor. This cycle repeats while the lamp is on and warm. By removing pollutants from the air, the salt lamp leaves you with cleaner, healthier air.
A Himalayan salt lamp will clean, deodorize and ionize the air, getting rid of unwanted pollutants and allergens. A salt lamp will help you say goodbye to dust, pollen, pollutants and smoke! Himalayan salt lamps are also known to increase your energy levels, remove negative ions, neutralize electromagnetic radiation, and provoke better sleep habits. The lamps improve mood and concentration, reduce static electricity and provide you with an environmental-friendly glow by a dim light bulb. https://hddmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/best-himalayan-salt-lamp-1068x789.jpg
Rose McClintick, a QXCI Practitioner and Biofeedback Analyst, who has been working in the holistic health field for seven years, tested our salt lamps and offered an enthusiastic endorsement in regard to their generation of negative ions: “Regarding the salt lamps, I can tell you that my test shows that it has improved the negative ions. (They) will be recommended to have in the bedrooms. You get both working for you, improved neg. ions and a better night’s sleep.” Zykoff Bodywork https://negativeionizers.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Buddha-salt-lamp-1020x510.jpg

So if you really what to do it right, be sure the salt lamp you buy is actually made from legit Himalayan pink salt and not, say, plastic. (Or get the plastic one, but don't remotely expect it to be more than a night-light.) If you're not into the raw salt crystal shape, you can also find salt lamps shaped like obelisks, pyramids, and the like. They also come in colors that aren't pink! Do a big Google search. You'll find one you like. http://www.himalayassaltlamps.com/content/201012/images/logo.png


That doesn’t mean the people who have experienced benefits are entirely wrong, though. Kogan told SheKnows it’s possible the lamp provides a placebo effect. Essentially, a person believes the salt lamps will help, there’s a psychological component to their issue, and thus the lamp does relieve some of their symptoms. “It’s more of a mind-body effort, really, because it’s not like there’s some kind of biochemical being released from the lamp,” she said. https://himalayansaltboutique.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-easycart-data/products/pics1/Four%20Large%20Fire%20Bowl%20Salt%20Lamps%20Pack_c2c46206f0c48ab68421d0e4f9835e44.jpg

Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. Running water is considered nature’s greatest source of negative ions and may be one of the things that contributes to the refreshing scent of waterfalls and the beach. In fact, this is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or after spending time at the beach.

As I just said, Himalayan salt lamps are inherently fragile. Once you own one, you definitely need to be careful not to drop it or bang it into other solid objects because the salt crystal can be damaged very easily. This is actually a rare time when durability is not desirable. If your salt lamp is unaffected by a collision, it could likely be an imposter. https://himalayansaltboutique.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Salt-Lamps-400.jpg
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.

I appreciate the talents of writers to be able to express that which I myself struggle with to translate into words. One paragraph cannot begin to encompass the substance and specifics of how, when and exact dilution methods, methods of delivery, etc. Blue8Ball is spot on regarding the adverse consequences resulting from misuse of essential oils as well as the nonsense being peddled by greedy uninformed or (even worse, lacking a conscience ) entrepreneurs that excel at sales and marketing. I too, find it frustrating to arrive at the end of an article only to feel mislead by headlines. Sometimes I wonder if the authors of these articles choose the words used to catch our attention in the headlines, and if not, does the individual who does feel any sense of responsibility for integrity? http://reductress.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/salt-lamp-820x500.jpg
Another way to improve the quality of air in your house is by frequently airing the place, so the air can circulate. In the winter months or when there are high levels of air pollution, it might be difficult to leave the windows open and sufficiently air all the rooms. That is when the salt lamps can be particularly useful and can help cleanse the air and remove the stubborn winter bugs. https://www.sun-gazing.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/32f23f233f232ff2323f32f3ff32.jpg
They can definitely clean the surrounding air of allergens and, even though it’s difficult to find extensive scientific studies to back all of the reported health benefits of salt lamps, the many positive reviews of people’s personal experiences makes them well worth considering, either for your own home, or as a gift for a friend who cares about health and wellness. https://thesoftlanding.com/wp-content/uploads/Create-Clean-Indoor-with-Himalayan-Sea-Salt-Lamps.png
There are a lot of products out there that claim to make your home a healthier place. Light therapy alarm clocks are thought to improve your overall mood and help you wake up more naturally; weighted blankets are designed to help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. And Himalayan salt lamps are said to improve your home's overall air quality, which may be why they've grown in popularity over the past few years.

By having a salt lamp in your home you can reduce the presence of positive ions in the air while increasing the amount of negative ions. They cut down greatly on the harmful, silent, and unseen effects electronics have on us that are all too often overlooked. There you have it, salt lamps are the easiest way to make the air you breathe cleaner and they instantly create a more relaxing environment. Here’s some additional health benefits people report experiencing after using the lamps, they include help with;
Himalayan Glow 11" Salt Lamp is made of natural salt crystal from the Himalayan mountains. Each lamp is individually handcrafted and unique sits on a beautiful neem wood base. Comes with 25-Watt light bulb, the unique patented dimmer switch (fire resistant) 6' electric cord. Every component made according to UL standards including salt rock by itself. Complete lamp ETL certified.
I used this lamp as instructed, leaving on a few hours per day. Today I came home after the lamp had been completely off and it had turned on on its own (despite switch still being turned to off) and the lamp was leaking liquid onto the table. The dimmer switch was very hot to the touch. The lamp could not be turned off without unplugging it. I only had this lamp a couple of weeks.

To accent the natural beauty of the salt crystals, it is housed in a decorative metal vase, perfect for the design-conscious home. Illuminate your room with a warm, pleasant and relaxing amber glow. It's a perfect choice in the center of a coffee table or desk. Great for meditation, yoga spaces, and as a nightlight. Also, you can try it as a Bedside lamp. Due to the natural variation in Himalayan Crystal salt, weight, size, color and shape may vary.
An awesome way to increase exposure to negative ions is to spend more time in nature, especially around water. Himalayan salt lamps are said to emit negative ions in small amounts and cancel out positive ones. By neutralizing electromagnetic radiation, they may help reduce the negative health effects of harmful electrosmog. Balancing positive and negative ions also may help reduce airborne infections. (4)
So Well Himalayan salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract moisture… humidity… airborne water molecules; it is a natural property of sodium chloride (hygroscopy). Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. In more humid regions, an unlit salt lamp will eventually “cry,” even creating puddles of water at its base. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41rdsyyoiSL.jpg
Bacteria, molds and allergens all carry a positive charge and the positive ions are also constantly added to our surroundings by electronic devices like laptops, LCDs, microwaves, and other household gadgets.  Positive ions are considered to cause problems like hypersensitivity, stress and insomnia. Basically, the positive ions cause an imbalance in our systems and raise stress and anxiety. https://himalayansaltlampstore.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/maple-leaf-salt-lamp-usb-mini.jpg

I decided to see my doctor who said that you are suffering from anxiety. Seriously, I didn’t believe it and thought that these are normal ups and downs as I was going through a difficult time. But a few more days passed and I realized that things are getting out of hand. My poor attentiveness, poor memory, lack of decision power and lethargic attitude was affecting my job , as well.
The other claim, discussed in more detail below, has to do with a study published on the effects of ionization in neural structures and blood flow in laboratory rats. In a similar issue of blindly comparing different scales, these rats (which are both not human and much smaller than humans) were directly fed negatively ionized air at high concentrations that would be inconceivable for a block of salt to produce, even if it did produce some small amount of ions.

Salt therapy for breathing problems is said to have begun with Siberian salt mine workers in the later 1800s who had a surprisingly small number of respiratory problems compared to people around them with less salty professions. Nowadays, you can find salt caves at various spas, and this salt cave experience is also trying to be re-created with the invention of salt pipe inhalers. Salt lamps are another smaller-scale way to bring the salt cave experience (and hopefully the health benefits) home. (6)

If your room is filled with appliances that spread positive ions in your room, like a wireless router, a wireless printer, Bluetooth and the likes, place more than one Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp to ensure maximum negative ions are spread into the air and counter all of the harmful positive ions. These appliances spreading positive ions are one of the major reasons why we have a bad sleep and continually make us feel anxious and stressed. 

Salt is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water. This is why Himalayan pink salt crystals start to melt with prolonged exposure to high humidity. Thus, you should keep them away from household moisture sources like showers, dishwashers and laundry washing machines. It can be dangerous if the salt begins leaking onto the lamp holder. To avoid buying a substandard lamp holder, purchase a salt lamp that’s firmly connected to the base. It’s also ideal to find a salt lamp that has UL certification, which is an extra measure of safety assurance. (11) http://www.natural-salt-lamps.com/wp-content/uploads/usblampweb.jpg

A few isolated studies have shown modest and equivocal effects from negative ionization. For instance, in 1981, researchers at the University of Surrey in England looked at the incidence of stuffiness, nausea, dizziness and headaches in people in an office environment. They found office air had fewer negative ions than is typical outside. So the team conducted a double-blind study and found that the reintroduction of ions reduced the incidence of these symptoms over a 12-week period. The findings were published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology. A 1993 study published in the Journal of Human Ergonomics found that negative ions could slightly affect people's circadian rhythms, although they had no impact on anxiety or exercise levels. https://thesaltlampstore.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Home3.jpg
"There has been some talk in the holistic community about the fact that electromagnetic radiation from cellphones, from microwaves, from computers, creates positive ionization of our body," Kogan explained to TODAY. "The talk has been that the negative ions supposedly produced by the lamps help to neutralize the positive charge. But to be honest with you... I haven't seen any large studies that would confirm this."

Thus, the way Himalayan salt lamps help with anxiety is that they constantly spread negative ions into the air. This is especially great when we are asleep, as it reduces all the anxiety by creating a peaceful environment and helping us achieve better sleep. Since this is naturally found in the caves, it offers the same kind of negative ions that you get from a waterfall or a beach or other places on our planet. https://www.spiritualquest.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/p-1221-Pillar_6packSQ-1.jpg
Enjoy the best convenient night light, and have a good night sleep. This night lamp can be used as a gentle nursery night light or to keep dark hallways lit with dim soothing light and for creating a calming ambiance. These night lamps emit electromagnetic waves which help to deal with stress and anxiety. That results to boost your energy and improve mood. https://originsalt.com/wp-content/uploads/3-himalayan-salt-lamps-color.png

Everyday appliances such as televisions, cell phones, computers and tablets release positive ions into the air constantly. These and other common electronics can cause an overflow of electromagnetic radiation (EM), which, although invisible, is believed to cause some serious long-term effects. Constant exposure to EM radiation is known primarily to cause fatigue, increase stress and weaken the immune system. Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions and cancel out positive ones. Therefore, by neutralizing electromagnetic radiation, they help reduce artificial frequencies and even prevent static buildup.  https://i.ytimg.com/vi/y0JDR0hK0Jg/maxresdefault.jpg
In addition to generating negative ions which improve mood and energy levels, the soft, natural light given off by a Himalayan pink salt lamp is close enough to the warm glow of sunshine that they can even be used to relieve the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder. This year when the days get shorter, fight back the lethargy by surrounding yourself with a few HPS lamps set on timers. https://3utkj32z22c5182hg334ib6l-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/ions-300x300.jpg
After having this salt lamp for two months, the light bulb make a loud noise and sparked. I tried putting in a new bulb and it still wouldn't work. This ended up happening to three of the five salt lamps we purchased (I purchased five of these at once from this seller). I tried getting in contact with the seller and they never responded so now I'm stuck with 3 salt lamps that can't be used. http://kheopsinternational.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Slide-Show7-7.jpg

Mined from a 250 million-year-old dried seabed, pink Himalayan salt is thought to have many beneficial health properties. This salt lamp gives off what might be called a primordial glow, one part sunset, one part molten lava, creating a light source that captivates all who are near it. Adjust the simple electronic dimmer to get the desired intensity of glow. A metal base is filled with Himalayan salt, and one 15 W incandescent light bulb (included). https://images.homedepot-static.com/productImages/09a20761-68c8-4a02-acbc-b68d417bbb83/svn/wbm-himalayan-novelty-lamps-1002-64_1000.jpg
