This claim has existed sporadically in the scientific literature for decades, but ultimately is not supported by current science. A 2013 review of psychological effects attributed to air ions, which looked at 33 studies from 1957 to 2012 evaluating “the effects of air ionization on depression, anxiety, mood states, and subjective feelings of mental well-being”, concluded:
Now enjoy the radiant glim in the most organic way in your spa, near the bathtub, in your meditation room or bedroom. You can place this candle holder anywhere like on a coffee table, nightstand or in the window for a perfectly cozy and comfy feeling. These candle holders are blocks of pure Himalayan salt, which are rightly called vitamins of air. This all makes them great for creating a superbly relaxing environment. http://www.skalitzkyjewelers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/window-001.png

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

So many things around us nowadays release electromagnetic radiation in the form of unhealthy positive ions — things like your cell phone, computer and television, just to name a few.  This electromagnetic radiation (EM), aka electrosmog, may be invisible but 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. http://www.nutroactive.com/Content/Manage/Product/ExtraLarge/32641071lt7OxMFJL._SL1100_.jpg

It may sound strange to think that Himalayan Salt Lamps can fight anxiety just by looking pleasant, but they really can work. Remember: Stress comes from you being out of your element or feeling like you're not in control. By creating a safe space - an area that you feel comfortable living in - you're essentially taking one of the legs out from under stress growth. If you feel at home, you're more likely to relax, which can go a long way in the fight against anxiety.
I have wanted one of these lamps for close to twenty years and now I finally have one!! It is super stylish and functional. I put it on a table in my meditation room (ooh how fancy). Seriously I love it - the pink lamp just radiates warmth, light, and healing energy. So lovely!! I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants something special for their library, office, living room etc. https://assets.marthastewart.com/styles/wmax-570/d20/himalayan-salt-lamps/himalayan-salt-lamps.jpg?itok
[…] While some dispute the health claims of this type of salt, saying the mineral content is too small to make any sort of recognizable difference, many others use Himalayan salt as a healthy addition to their diet. Some people even enjoy the soft glow of a Himalayan salt lamp in their house as it is said to reduce positive ions in the home environment, improving health and well-being. […] http://www.paksalts.com/image/dove%20salt%20lamp%20sitting%20SE-1236.jpg
Despite numerous experimental and analytical differences across studies, the literature does not clearly support a beneficial role in exposure to negative air ions and respiratory function or asthmatic symptom alleviation. Further, collectively, the human experimental studies do not indicate a significant detrimental effect of exposure to positive air ions on respiratory measures. Exposure to negative or positive air ions does not appear to play an appreciable role in respiratory function.

Real Himalayan salt lamps are made of salt so it’s not surprising that they’re fragile objects. A good manufacturer knows this and has return policies that are flexible since there could be some damage in transit. If a salt lamp’s maker is extremely strict (like a “NO RETURNS” policy), then it makes you wonder if it’s a scam operation. This might not necessarily be the case, but some fake retailers have been known not to permit any returns because they know they’re not giving you the real thing.


"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.

Another possible health benefit of the Himalayan salt lamp is a reduction in anxiety symptoms. According to color therapy as well as general human enjoyment, the warm pinkish to orange glow of the salt lamp is a calming and happy presence in a room. Additionally, as a real piece of nature, Himalayan salt gives off negative ions like a waterfall (but in much smaller amounts). Since Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions into the air, they can help reduce anxiety and also encourage a relaxing atmosphere for sleep. (7) Many people like to keep salt lamps in their bedrooms for their calming effect. https://www.trulyliving.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Himalayan-salt-lamp-truly-living-lisa-rose-2-625x469.jpg
Himalayan pink salt lamps help clean the air through an operation called hygroscopy, which attracts and absorbs contaminated water molecules from the immediate environment and locks them into the salt crystal. The process has the amazing ability to remove cigarette smoke, dust and other contaminants from the air. This benefit is particularly popular, as salty air acts as an overall health booster and can help clear the air passages.  https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/xqcAAOSwdGFY1PWR/s-l300.jpg

Where do you purchase one that can be left on for long periods of time? I want to be sure if my fiance leaves the thing on overnight, we won’t burn the entire house down! My friend told me about the base of your salt lamp really matters. Wood doesn’t do so good, but having a steel base helps to absorb moisture and its safe to use for long periods of time. There’s so many brands out there manufacturing these, so be sure to look out for a steel base! https://www.spiritualquest.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/p-1636-Himalayan-Salt-Pumpkins1.jpg

Taking a drive through the countryside with the windows down, spending time at the beach or camping in the mountains, or simply taking a shower first thing in the morning are all things that many people find invigorating. It’s not a coincidence that these are all activities which expose us to increased concentrations of negative ions such as those generated by Himalayan salt lamps. The fact is, positive ions sap our bodies of energy. Unfortunately, it’s all too common for us to try to diagnose the problem as something else entirely. http://www.himalayansaltlampbenefits.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Volcano-Lamp-1024x683.jpg
Since we are constantly surrounded by modern day WIFI, CELL phone towers, Tv’s and other electrical appliances, these things give off a lot of Electro magnetic Radiation or EMFS for short. These EMF’s high in positive ions have been known to reduce our serotonin levels and can cause cancer, fatigue, lathery and a host of problems we face today. Salt lamps, since they have the ability to generate negative ions, neutralize these EMF’s . https://himalayansaltlamp.io/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/b20.jpg
Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps comes in a variety of sizes, and all of them are carved from inside and have lighting instruments to heat it up. It goes without saying that the larger the block of Himalayan rock salt the more the negative ions you will find in the environment. It is ideal to use this in a place where you tend to be the most. Thus, for maximum output, place it near the bed where you sleep which will help you benefit better. https://www.alohabay.com/products/saltlamps/lg/cube-salt-usb.jpg

It’s true! They’re called salt lamps or salt rock lamps, and yes, they’re actually made from pink Himalayan salt and are able to light your surroundings — but they’re really not bought for their moderate lighting abilities. There are major claims that a Himalayan salt lamp does much more than provide you with a pretty glow. Himalayan salt lamp benefits supposedly include decreasing air pollution, negative ions and electrosmog caused by electronic devices in addition to symptom reduction for people suffering from from asthma, allergies and other illnesses. http://saltnatural.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/10.jpg
There have been more than 2,000 studies exposing the toxic effects of electromagnetic fields from all sources. Scientists have come to the scary conclusion that “chronic exposure to even low-level radiation (like that from cell phones) can cause a variety of cancers, impair immunity, and contribute to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, heart disease, and many other ailments.” (3)
“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. http://www.diazepamresource.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Nifty-Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Canada-J90-About-Remodel-Simple-Home-Decoration-Planner-with-Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Canada.jpg
I absolutely ❤️ this salt lamp. Unfortunately, the salt lamp had come out of it’s original box during shipping and I was very fortunate it wasn’t damaged. I would recommend the original packaging be taped and the salt lamp shipped in a smaller box for protection. This salt lamp is SO elegant that I gave it 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone or give it as a gift. https://himalayansaltusa.com/image/cache/data/product/5%20Lamp%20custom/Himalayan%20salt%20lamp%20Jumbo%20II%20HS-80-540x600.jpg
The strongest evidence supporting any benefit of negative ions is as an antibacterial agent. A 1979 study in the journal Nature showed that high levels of negative oxygen ions could kill bacteria. Ionizers could also reduce the prevalence of surface and airborne bacteria in refrigerators, according to a 2009 study. However, that research applied only to sanitizing food or work surfaces, and did not make any claims about health benefits. https://yoursaltlamps.com/wp1/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/himalayan_salt_lamps_kitchen.jpg
This is a genuine Himalayan salt lamp. You can tell because of the unique color of the salt and the fragility of it. Its salt so you want to see it rub a bit off. It is good to know that it is genuine. The light bulb was broken upon arrival but I do not blame the seller for that and they have been very communicative in their response to get a new light bulb. I am contemplating buying one for friends. https://i.ytimg.com/vi/kBJXOgitHwo/hqdefault.jpg

I purchased this item from Amazon and a year or so later the dimmer switch stopped working. When I took it apart to inspect I found the transistor (which is severely undersized for this design) had overheated and burned up itself and the circuit board. I searched the part numbers online and discovered this is the *exact same* board that has been recalled by other manufacturers (i.e., Micheals). I do not understand why Amazon has not recalled their version of it yet. It is a fire waiting to happen. I would not recommend anyone using this product.

We need light to see, but the light that we frequently use is overly bright and emits at frequencies that are overwhelming to our eyes. Unfortunately, there was no sufficient alternative to typical light sources until the invention of the Himalayan salt lamp. The versatile salt stones come in natural and shaped sculptures which have a unique aesthetic that’s unmatched. The pinkish-orange hue that the lamp emits is soothing and warm, but you can also try a multicolor USB lamp to pick a color that fits your architectural dreams. In addition to the visible effect on the ambiance, salt possesses a quality known as hygroscopy that absorbs water vapor and the attached microbes from the air. They also emit negative ions that reverse the effect of positive ionization from other technological devices which are known to have detrimental health effects over time such as increasing the risk of cancer. Combined with the natural beauty of the hazy, soft light that is more enjoyable than a bright overhead or grating florescent light, a Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp will instantly improve the ambiance of any room in a natural and healthy way.

Nature creates negative ions to counter positive ions . The negative ions increase the oxygen supply to the brain thus creates alertness of mind and reduces lethargy and anxiety. An example of experiencing wonders of this effect is when you go for walk by riverside or enjoy serenity of a waterfall. The air saturated with negative ions makes you feel happy and relaxed . http://www.himalayansalt.com/assets/images/gamma-lcd-salt-lamp.jpg

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://www.tibetansalts.com/images/Mountain_single.jpg
Himalayan pink salt is an extremely pure, hand-mined salt that comes from ancient sea salt deposits in the Punjab region of Pakistan. It’s believed to be the purest form of salt available. As a pink salt, Himalayan salt is rich in iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and copper. All these nutrients are actually what give Himalayan salt its pretty pink color.

They cut the bottom to make it flat and drill a hole to make space to fit lighting instruments. These instruments not only provide light but also heat that helps spread and evaporate the salt into the air. It is believed that once it is heated, it is capable of capturing all the impurities present in the area, as well as spreading negative ions which are known to be beneficial to us. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1011/1722/products/himalayan_salt_lampl-1500px_1024x1024.png?v
