Himalayan Salt Lamps - 2017 Design Trend
After reading an article about 2017 design trends, I became very interested in an item that was mentioned - "Himalayan Salt Lamps". Never having heard about them, I googled them to get a little additional information. If these lamps are as beneficial as claimed, I'll be getting a good night sleep from now on!
Basically these lamps clean and deodorize the air by removing dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, and other contaminants from the air. Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy. As the lamp warms up by the heat of the light bulb, they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying into the salt.
Majority of homes are filled with positively charged ions which aren't particularly good for a person's health. The positive ions are created by a number of things, but the primary source is electronics. Positive ions sap our bodies of energy. Besides removing contaminants from the air, Himalayan salt lamps also help to filter air more efficiently so any foreign particles you do happen to breathe won't make it into your lungs. Salt lamps are said to improve sleeping with the improved air quality and reduction of positive ions.
I live a healthy life through exercise and eating well, but have always chased a good nights sleep. As they are relatively inexpensive, I thought I would try one. I found mine on amazon for under $30.00. If the Himalayan Salt Lamp is as beneficial as they claim, it will be the best $30.00 I've ever spent!
