All this Himalayan salt is said to be naturally iodized which means that they already have a number of benefits already integrated into it. This means that if you use it as a home décor it will change the electrical charge of the atmosphere of your house. Basically, it contains ions that contain protons and electrons that are unbalanced. It generally produces in the atmosphere whenever alternations occur in the environment. Even in some laboratory, these pink salts are been produced but the quality of that salt will match the original one is still questionable.

Thus to cut down all these radiations the use of salt lamps is done because they cancel the positive ions because they emit negative ions. This helps to balance the electromagnetic radiations.


  • Improves the breathing process



There are some studies and research conducted on the human body that tells that in a human body there are some breathing filters that are called cilia. And those filters or windpipes get narrow as it is not resistant to positive ions. Hence these positive ions can only be neutralized by the Himalayan salt lamp that emits negative ions which are very beneficial for our windpipe and cilia.


  • Good for asthma and allergies



It is said that indoor air is much polluted in comparison to the outside air because the in an open environment the air keeps the flow and constantly changes but the environment inside a house is completely packed and the chance of ventilation is very less.
