Himalayan salt, some proclaim, approximates primal oceanic elements our bodies were exposed to during the earliest stages of man’s evolution, which is why it claims to have so many healing
properties when negative ions are disbursed from its crystals. To add to its mystique, authentic salt crystals come from the deepest mines on earth located under the foothills of the Himalayan Mountain range. Crystals are hand-harvested from mineral deposits on salt cave floors that have been dated by geologists to the Precambrian Age.
Where to place your Himalayan Salt Lamp for maximum benefits
Place a Himalayan Salt Lamp in your bedroom to help clear sinuses during the night when the body’s defense system is most relaxed and receptive and to help intensify your sleep experience. Install one in the room in which you relax — family room, living room, den–to freshen the air and make family time, reading and hobbies more pleasurable. Enjoy reduced fatigue–especially during that 3 p.m. slump–by putting a Himalayan Salt Lamp to work in your home office. You’ll not only transform the air you’re breathing, but you’ll reduce the amount of electro-magnetic pollution office equipment disburses. Keep a lamp nearby when you’re studying to increase your powers of concentration when you peruse material you’re learning. Meditation practitioners extol the virtues of the Himalayan Salt Lamp when used in conjunction with yoga, deep breathing and other meditative efforts. Allergy sufferers are said to benefit greatly from exposure to this
clean, naturally-ionized air.
Add a Himalayan Salt Lamp to your work environment for increased productivity
No official “Bring your Salt Lamp to Work Week” has been declared so you might want to institute this practice if your home lamp proves beneficial. Massage therapists are adopting Himalayan Salt Lamps as the newest in their arsenal of relaxants by installing them in treatment areas. When placed in holistic and homeopathic medical clinics and practitioner’s offices, employees claim they notice a difference when they treat patients after exposure. Finally, Feng Shui masters regularly introduce a Himalayan Salt Lamps into the mix when they stage rooms to increase and enhance the amount of chi (energy) present in the air. Where’s your favorite place? Enhance it with a lamp.
Since your objective is to be exposed to as many negative ions as possible being emitted from your Himalayan Salt lamp, it bears repeating: choose one with the largest amount of exposed salt surface and select a color by the most intensity in the hue. Additionally, place the lamp as close to the person in need of the therapeutic effects as possible, because even a large lamp will only positively impact the air of people in close proximity to it — perhaps a few feet at most. As with all alternative health treatments, apply due diligence when you shop because many folks are getting on the Himalayan Salt Lamp bandwagon and not all of them are constructing these with the safety of the user in mind.
