Himalayan Glow

Posted on: August 17, 2018

I had heard of Himalayan pink salt for cooking . . . Himalayan bath salts for aches and pain . . .but a Himalayan salt lamp?  This was a new one, but it seems to have quickly gained popularity by popping up at stores from Showcase to Winners.

I recently bought a new table for my living room and was looking for some décor pieces when I came across this beauty.  These lamps are a huge piece of Himalayan salt with a small bulb inside.  Its glow is like a summer sunset creating a beautiful ambience in any room.  I have been loving mine in the living room.  In the evenings, I would have all the lights turned off except for this lamp and one of my favourite candles while I curl up in front of the TV for some Netflix.  The one I picked up is pretty large, so it gives a decent amount of light to the room.  Not only does it serve as a great décor piece, but I found out that there are actually many benefits to a Himalayan Salt Lamp.  Electronics such as your TV, smartphone and computer, release positive ions which are harmful to our bodies. Luckily, this lamp releases negative ions which helps cancel out all those positive ions.  It cleanses the air through hygroscopy and is great at removing dust and pollen from the air, which is quite helpful if you have suffer from allergies or asthma.  Who would have guessed that a gorgeous lamp would be beneficial to my health as well?
