Don’t have a Himalayan Salt lamp? If you are on the fence and would like a little further information before you buy, here are 5 benefits of Natural Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp that might help you decide.
Static electricity is so annoying! Who hasn’t had to deal with frizzy hair or an article of clothing that is stuck clinging to your skin (typically at the most inopportune time) or, my favorite, a sock stuck to the back of your outfit where you will never see it? And the dreaded shock you get from touching a doorknob or even your loved ones is the worst. Static cling is to blame for all of these annoying life situations, but Himalayan Salt Lamps can help you to avoid these by neutralizing the the air and the ionized particles that cause static.
Since Himalayan Salt Lamps are known to produce negative ions which are good for boosting moods, they are said to be good at helping to boost your mood when you are feeling down. In addition; the soft, warm glow is similar to that of the sun, and many people enjoy the sun-like glow in their home year round. For those that tend to feel down during the darker months of Fall and Winter, that glow is a benefit.
Air Purifier and Cleanser
Himalayan Salt lamps are excellent at removing dust, pollen and impurities from their air. This is perhaps their most well known benefit. They essentially act as a great air purifier and filter locking all of the impurities into the salt. Because of their abilities to reduce impurities, these lamps are great for those that suffer from allergies and asthma. Placing one or two of the lamps in each room, the sufferer will likely see results within a couple of weeks.
Budget Friendly and Long Lasting
Have you ever shopped around for a Himalayan Salt Lamp? If you have assumed that they are expensive, you should check them out. You will be surprised to find that they are relatively budget friendly (many like this one can be found for less than $20). In addition, they last a very long time. Many Himalayan Salt Lamp owners report that their lamps have lasted for decades.
Gentle on Your Eyesight
The soft glow of a Himalayan Salt lamp is easy on your eyes, which is more than can be said for many of the fixtures and lamps that are currently in most homes. The majority of the lights we encounter on a daily basis (lamps and light fixtures, televisions, phones, computers, etc) are blue lights which are straining to the eyes. Their soft yellow light also makes them a perfect choice for a nightlight for your little ones that don’t like the dark.
So what do you think? Have you given Himalayan Salt Lamps a try? What benefits have you seen?

Hi Julie, lovely blog! We used to homeschool our 3 boys but they are back at school now. I’m hoping to homeschool again in the future. I just happened upon this article, which I love because I am absolutely smitten with Himalayan salt lamps! Ever since I was bought one for a present and used it in my bedroom and found that I was sleeping more deeply. As someone who has always struggled with sleep this was an absolute godsend! Anyway, wishing you all the best, Elizabeth.
How cool is that! High five to a fellow three boy mom! I’m just loving mine too, but I need more. My five year old is fighting me for our only one.
