Most of us have probably seen or used the Himalayan rock salt in our home for cooking purposes. And we know of its immense health benefits in reducing blood pressure and cholesterol. But, there are also some other benefits of this salt which can improve usual health problems like headache, insomnia  allergies and so on.

We all know the harmful effects that the wireless world of today can cause. But do we know how they harm us? All the wireless mobile equipment that we use releases certain positive ions into the environment creating electronic smog, which cause great harm to our health. They can cause cancers too.

How To Use Himalayan Salt Lamps For Better Sleep And Mental Clarity

Positive ions do not cause any positivity, in fact, it’s the opposite. Insomnia, allergies, mental health problems are just a few of the problems. This happens because our brain is exposed to 20 times more amount of electronic smog than what it can handle. It has become very necessary in today’s lives to neutralize these positive ions.

What can neutralize positive ions? Negative ions, of course. Opposites attract each other. The inedible Himalayan salt is the source of these negative ions. The negative ions released attaches itself to positive ions in its surroundings like dust, mould, irritants, allergens and the electronic smog. They are then neutralized. The air around us becomes fresh and pure. We feel an aura of positivity and freshness around us. It would seem like you have just visited a beach or a waterfalls. Your environment becomes lovely.

Put on the Lights

How do we use it? You have to buy a Himalayan salt lamp first. It consists of a salt with a bulb which supplies light. The bulb also heats up the salt, releasing the negative ions. In a humid environment, the salt may appear wet because the salt attracts moisture from the environment. But the heat of the bulb makes it evaporated easily. All the positive ions are neutralized and removed.

The benefits are immense. It can relieve headaches, migraines, Choki, respiratory illness, blood pressure problems and stress-related problems. You are refreshed like you just visited a beautiful scenic location.

Stay Positive

Most importantly, you feel relaxed, cool, calm and composed. The whole environment around you fills with freshness and positivity. Your day goes well. You feel happy and safe. These salts obtained from ancient oceans are meant to improve your lives in all possible ways. Do not ignore to keep it in your homes and light it up in your own little way.
