Have you ever wondered what is so beneficial about Himalayan Salt Lamps?
In the reported health benefits of Salt Lamps column, I just wanted to address that there is not a lot of scientific research on this, however it is proven that salt lamps are natural negative ionizers. These claims may be contributed from the Salts ability to neutralizes electromagnetic radiation from electronic devices.
Electronic devices are constantly around us throughout the day and the night. These devices are exerting positive ions into our environment. As seen above positive ions can have a massive impact on our health. there are many ways to keep a steady flow of negative ions to rid yourself of this tiresome cycle.
Interesting info I found
Salt attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Himalayan crystal salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapor and its attached pollutants.
As Himalayan salt lamps slowly becomes saturated with water vapor they attract from the air around them, the heat from the lamp inside dries them, for as long as the light is on.
This heat also re-releases water vapor back into the air. Importantly, any airborne contaminants attracted to the salt lamp remain trapped there and will not become airborne again.

To be completely honest you can never have too many salt lamps. keep them in rooms that you are the most active so they can purify the air that you breathe. We have about 6 at our place and always are on the look out for more. One salt lamp in the home will not purify the whole house, but it will help.
Directions on how to clean and how long to keep salt lamps on
According to this website that I have been addressing, you want to leave your salt lamps on for up to 2 weeks. After the two week mark or sooner let the lamp cool for at least 1 hour. As far as cleaning goes, you want to get a rag and dampen it with just a little amount of water and wipe the surface of the lamp. If you think about it, all the positive ions and pollutants in the air are on the surface.
I know when I first received my lamp I wanted to lick it because it was funny and it's Himalayan Salt so its healthy right? After reading this I wont be doing that anymore hahha!!!
