The Power of Himalayan Salt Lamps

I live in a small apartment in a big city, and until recently have always had the same air quality complaints that any apartment-dwelling cat-owner has – the air is dry, dusty, and gives my home an all-over feeling of ‘blah.’

Especially in the winter time. I sniffled non-stop the entire time I was at home – I don’t even want to know the number of tissues I have gone through since I moved in three years ago.

Finally, this winter I decided that was it – it was either the cat or me. Thankfully, before I have my furry companion the boot, a coworker introduced me to Himalayan salt lamps.

Until recently, I thought the lamps were beautiful but mostly decorative. I could not have been more wrong.Little did I know these lamps emit negative ions – the same ions that are produced after storms, or by waterfalls, or waves at the beach.

You know that sense of calm you feel after a good storm? That’s negative ions at work. The reason that sensation doesn’t last forever is because there are also positive ions. Positive ions are released through electricity – computers, TVs, microwaves, air conditioners all create positive ions. So basically, all of my respiratory problems I was blaming on my poor cat were really just mild symptoms greatly exaggerated by the positive ions in the air!

Since plugging in my salt lamp, my allergies have gotten MUCH better. I am sleeping better at night and have more energy during the day. The apartment feels cleaner and smells better. My small, dark, dry apartment doesn’t feel so small, dark, or dry anymore. And my guests have commented. Usually it is a comment like “What have you done with the place? It just feels better in here.” And it does.


Yours Truly,
