Himalayan Salt Metaphysical
Himalayan salt is chemically similar to table salt plus mineral impurities. It consists of 95-98% sodium chloride, 2-4% polyhalite (potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, oxygen, hydrogen), 0.01% fluoride, 0.01% iodine, and micro-amounts of numerous trace minerals.
The salt crystals have an off-white to transparent color while impurities in some veins of salt give it a pink, reddish, or beef red color. The reddish color is due to the presence of elements in polyhalite and trace minerals.
Himalayan Salt are natural negative ionizers and dehumidifiers.
The air around us is filled with electrically charged particles. Positively or negatively charged, they are called ions, continually occurring in the atmosphere. They must be kept in balance.
Negative ions are air molecules created naturally in lightning storms and rainstorms, next to waterfalls and near strong waves, by means of sunlight and wind; they are abundant in forests, in mountain areas and in proximity of water. This is why we feel energized in fresh country air or by a waterfall. Research conducted in the last decade concluded that negative ions have a positive effect on health like improving mood swings, relieving seasonal depression, fatigue, stress and headaches as they affect oxygen and serotonin levels in the bloodstream.
1. Salt lamps are Natural Negative Ionizers: The heated salt crystal absorbs the water molecules from the ambient air and evaporates them, a process during which negative ions are released abundantly, creating a healthier, more balanced atmosphere.
2. Salt Lamps neutralize artificial electro-magnetic wavelengths produced by harmful electronic devices surrounding us that cause nervousness, insomnia and lack of concentration. They amplify the natural frequency of 8 to10 cycles per second in the human brain, which is the normal resonance synchronized with the resonant frequency of the planet’s electro-magnetic field (7.83 Hz or cycle per second) and stabilize alpha wave rhythms in our brain.
3. They are Natural Dehumidifiers: Salt is hygroscopic, naturally attracting moisture. It absorbs the excess humidity in any given room creating a dry environment, while killing bacteria and other microbes. Therefore, salt lamps help purify the ambient air, while eliminating bad odors in the process.
4. They beautify the surrounding as they create a relaxing atmosphere promoting stress reduction, better sleep and an overall sense of well being.
