Benefits of Himalayan salt lamps include deodorizing and cleansing air; easing coughing, asthma and allergy symptoms; neutralizing electromagnetic radiation; increasing energy levels; and improving sleep, concentration, and mood.
These lamps can also treat seasonal affective disorders and provide natural light. The healthy negative ions improve the general indoor air quality.
People use Himalayan salt lamps to deodorize and cleanse the air by removing contaminants such as cigarette smoke, pollen and dust. The power of hygroscopy helps purify the air.
The microscopic cycling of airborne particles in the salt lamps heats up the negative ions. As the particles absorb water molecules in the air, they expel negative ions, keeping the lungs clear.
