It seems as if you can’t visit a health food store, raw organic cafe, yoga studio or other holistic health spot without seeing a Himalayan Salt Lamp, and their signature warming glow. But what you may not realize is that the lamps provide many incredible benefits even beyond their good looks.
These benefits include cleaner air, the ability to mitigate the effects of damaging EMF’s from computers and Wi-Fi, and a widely-reported calming effect, just to name a few.
I’ve experienced the benefits of these incredible mood boosters first-hand, and I actually have six of them in my home: one for each room and then some. They’ve given my living space a certain ambiance that, combined with house plants, provides a more “soft” and natural overall feel.
Himalayan Salt Lamps can be purchased in health food stores or online at HimalayanSaltShop.com (check out their new sales!).
Negative Ions in Salt Lamps and Their Powerful Benefits
Himalayan Salt Lamps are particularly effective because of their ability to produce negative ions, and here’s a simple example of why this is so significant for your health.
Close your eyes and visualize the last time you were outdoors during a coming thunderstorm.
Dark clouds loom overhead, an ominous wind rustles your hair, and a palpable sense of tension can be felt in the air. Do you remember that feeling?
The tension actually stems from a huge build-up of positive ions in the air prior to the storm.
Now, close your eyes and think back to how you feel after the storm and the rain have passed.
The tension is gone, you can begin to breathe freely again, and an overall sense of calm enters your world, along with a pleasant smell. This phenomenon is the result of the benefits of negative ions, which are also provided by Himalayan Salt Lamps.
The benefits of negative ions are well known and accepted in the medical community, and are even acknowledged by the “mainstream” health site WebMD for their amazing healing properties.
You can’t see, taste, or touch negative ions — but you certainly can feel them.
According to WebMD: “Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.”
Negative ion-rich environments include natural settings such as waterfalls, hot springs, beaches, mountains and even caves that contain large amounts of natural Himalayan or other salt, minerals, and crystals.
The ions are created in nature when air molecules are broken apart due to the powers of sunlight, air, water and more. Such natural areas are stacked with untold thousands of negative ions while our homes and offices often contain very little — some actually test out at zero, believe it or not.
According to author Pierce J. Howard, PhD, negative ions increase altertness and oxygen to the brain, resulting in more mental energy (editor’s note: and less stress).
Himalayan Salt Lamps give you the ability to punctuate your workspace with negative ions that will keep you feeling excellent all day long if placed in the right spots.
Salt Lamp Benefits: Cleaner Air, Sinuses and Much More
I have personally enjoyed the benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps for many years now, and place them all over the house: One near the computer, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom that even contains an essential oil air dispersal system, and one in a quiet corner where I like to relax, read or meditate.
The Benefits of Salt Lamps include:
- Balancing and Mitigating EMF Fields
- Increased Mental Alertness
- Increased Oxygen to the Brain
- Boosted Serotonin Levels (Good Mood Brain Chemical)
- Protection Against Air Irritants for (Less Coughs and Sneezes)
- Prevention of Allergy Symptoms

Personally, I’ve felt many of these benefits from own salt lamps and notice the effects immediately as long as I’m close enough to them.
Reviews everywhere have been positive: for example, 872 people have reviewed one type that I own on Amazon.com for an average review score of 4 ½ stars out of 5.
Here are some testimonials from Amazon.com:
