Why everyone should have a Himalayan Salt Lamp in their house - I swear by mine

Can't open your windows but still want clean, fresh air? Whether you live in the city and the noise is too much, or it's a gloomy day and the temperature is too cold, sometimes opening a window is not an option.

Luckily, there is an inexpensive alternative that also happens to have a lot of health benefits!

Himalayan Salt lamps are a natural way to provide clean air through ions in the air and can provide relief or treatment for a lot of ailments people have on a daily basis!

1. Cleanse and Deodorize Air

Using hygroscopy, the absorption of surrounding water molecules or foreign particles, salt lamps absorb the particles and the heat from the lamp evaporates the water back into the air, keeping the dust, pollen, smoke, etc, trapped in the salt lamp.

2. Reduce Allergy and Asthma Symptoms

Because the salt lamp absorbs foreign particles in the air, you are left with an environment with limited allergens. This makes it easier to breathe for people who suffer from asthma and allergies!
