Here's How A Himalayan Salt Lamp Can Affect Your Lungs, Brain And Mood

Did you ever think that a lamp could have health benefits? Surprisingly, one does. The Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp just might be the easiest thing you could do for your well-being.

Salt lamps are actually made of real lumps of salt. These rock salt formations from India are affixed with a light bulb kit, or you can purchase those with room for a candle. The lamps are attractive and glow pleasantly for ambient lighting. According to some sources, just being around one regularly improves your health.

Salt lamps supposedly clean and deodorize the air, which leads to a reduction of allergy and asthma problems for the person in the room. The lamp is said to absorb molecules in the air that might contain irritants.

People with salt lamps report they have more energy, better focus and that their mood improves with use. In addition, people who use the salt lamp as a nightlight say they sleep better.

The salt lamp, claims manufacturers, absorbs ions from the room that would otherwise cause inflammation and radiation. Some suggest salt lamps can be used to treat conditions like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and fibromyalgia.

Unfortunately, scientists have not released any studies that back these claims, but the popularity of salt lamps is growing. Many people who use them swear by the benefits. Could a hunk of hot salt really do all this, or is it too good to be true?
