Even though the health benefits of the Himalayan Salt Lamp aren’t fully supported by modern science, there are indications these lamps may enhance your well-being. It is believed by many that: Salt cleanses & deodorize the air: salt has the power to remove dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants from the air. Himalayan salt purifies the air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment, and then absorb those molecules—as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying—into the salt crystal. As the HPS warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc. remain locked in the salt. Improves sleep: positively-charged particles can reduce blood and oxygen supply to the brain resulting in irregular sleep patterns. Himalayan pink salt are natural negative ion generators; thus, they can help to reverse this problem. Conservation: To extend the lifetime of your lamps, always remember to place them in dry areas. The Himalayan pink salt crystals will start melting with prolonged exposure to high humidity, so we recommend that you keep a close watch on the lamps placed near sources of steam like showers, dishwashers, or laundry machines. Light bulbs may explode in case of power surges. If you live in an area and/or home that experiences high variations in electric current, you should connect this product to surge protection devices (SPDs).
