Don’t we all love decorating our houses? Whether it’s the furniture, curtains or lighting, everything must give off a ‘homely’ and inviting feeling. We invest so much time in making sure everything has its own little place where it can freely exhibit its uniqueness.
While we are setting up our humble abodes, choosing items ranging from the biggest to the smallest ornament imaginable, do we ever stop to wonder whether these objects might be beneficial to our health? I mean, their sole purpose is to beautify BUT what if they could actually make a positive impact on our health as well? Sounds dreamy right?
Well to be honest, you might be able to achieve your goal of beautifying and purifying your living space with a “Himalayan salt lamp.”
Now, what is this magical lamp you are wondering, well, it is LITERALLY a lamp made out of pink Himalayan salt. They are carved out of Pink Himalayan salt and are decorative lamps that are believed to have a number of health related benefits. They are believed to improve your air quality and help with sleeping.
The best part about these lamps is that they are made in our very own homeland Pakistan.
Many people invest in these lamps due to their unique designs and ambiance they emit especially when lit. Whereas others tend to prefer their health benefits such as boosting your overall energy, helping with allergies and most importantly aiding with your sleep.
Now let’s look at a few health benefits of these lamps:
Many of us suffer from insomnia at some point in our lives due to various reasons. Not having proper sleep for a long period of time can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Since these lamps emit a dim light which helps in alleviating stress and tension, a person feels more relaxed and at ease. What happens when you are mentally relaxed? Yes, you guessed it right, YOU sleep like a baby.
One of the most important claims made about these lamps is that they aid in making the air quality around you better. As a result they are helpful for people suffering from respiratory issues such as allergies and asthma. It is believed that these lamps release negative ions in the air which help fight against germs. The salt on the other hand helps in effectively filtering air in our bodies which helps against symptoms of cold and flu such as coughing, sneezing and sore throats.
These magical lamps are also said to improve your mood and lift your energy level. The science behind this is the release of ‘negative ions.’ Positive ions reduce the energy level of our bodies. Negative ions on the other hand give us an energy boost. Moreover, according to studies, people who were exposed to high levels of negative ions reported to have an improvement in their moods. It is also believed that these negative ions cause an increase in serotonin which helps in mood regulation. So these lamps are beneficial for people struggling with mood disorders, especially depression.
These lamps are easily available online and you can even purchase them by visiting Khewra Salt Mines. After reading about these amazing benefits I’m sure you will be tempted to buy your own lamp because I know I am.
