How does it work?
Himalayan Salt Lamps act as natural negative ionizers. Negative ions are created in nature by moving water (rain, waterfalls, tide and waves on a beach), thunderstorms as well as sunlight. That is why the air feels so fresh and easy to breathe after a rain shower or on a beach.
As the in-built light bulb gently heats the salt stone it starts to become humid. It will produce negative ions to the surrounding air improving overall air-quality and neutralizing positively charged ions created by electronic appliances, bacteria and allergens. Himalayan salt lamps have a soothing, relaxing effect; Partly because they charge the air around them with negative ions, partly because of the beautiful, warm light that they create.
You can read more about the science and benefits behind negative ions for example HERE
Himalayan salt lamps are available in health stores, just bring a solid shopping bag with you as they are rocks after all and can be pretty heavy depending on the size you choose. And why not get one for the office too with all those computers around!
