In Feng Shui, Himalayan Salt Lamps are believed to draw negative energies (Sha Chi) from spaces and objects allowing them to receive positive energy to help balance Yin and Yang. When the heat of the lamp’s bulb warms the salt, the Himalayan Salt Lamp releases much-needed negative ions into the air. They are a natural way for people of all ages to live healthier lives while promoting good Feng Shui energy in the home.
You can find them in a variety of shapes and sizes. The bigger they are the more potent they are influencing the energy in it’s surroundings. Some are carved into exquisite shapes from salt blocks that makes them even more appealing to decorate with. Salt Lamps start out as a solid block of salt, which is then hollowed out to make room for a light bulb. When the light bulb is on, it creates heat that is necessary for the lamp to work properly. The light also creates a soothing glow.
Who Can Benefit from Himalayan Salt Lamps?
The truth is, anyone can benefit from its use. The process that Himalayan Salt Lamps use to change unhealthy positive ions to healthy negative ions is quite simple. When there is moisture in the air, and your lamp is turned on, this moisture is taken in by the Salt Lamp. The positive ions are rendered harmless, and the lamp puts beneficial negative ions in the atmosphere. These negative ions can help with many everyday concerns like asthma, harmful allergens, fatigue, bad smells and aid in improved quality of sleep and increased energy levels. Even people that lead very stressful lives have felt calm through the use of genuine Himalayan Salt Lamps.
The best location for the Salt Lamp:
In Classical Feng Shui…they are suggested as a remedy where annual Red Earth is needed because of its element and unique color.
Another great area is to place a Salt Lamp in your living room. Since large electronics in particular emit plenty of positive ions, by placing the Salt Lamps right next to computer monitor or television, its effect, through its electromagnetic field, of the device is in approximately the 100-160 Hz zone. Our brain waves however, produce only 8 Hz according to the Schuman resonance frequency. Therefore, the body is exposed to up to 20 times higher frequency patterns than it is generally used to. The consequences of this exposure results in nervousness, insomnia and weakened concentration. In addition, there will be an accumulation of more free radicals in the body, known to be a cause of cancer. If you work in an environment that will allow it, place a Salt Lamp near your work computer as well.
Other best locations for the Salt Lamps are the areas where you spend the most time. Himalayan Salt Lamps can also be used in conjunction with live plants to clean the air in your home.
The Himalayan Salt Lamp cleans the air, much like an ionizer, but without the need for expensive filters or cleaning. All the maintenance your Salt Lamp needs is to be wiped with a soft cloth if excess moisture builds up on the lamp. If you Salt Lamp is genuine, then it will absorb all the moisture around, start sweating and shrinking overtime.
Areas not to use your Salt Lamp:
There are a few places you don’t want to use your Himalayan Salt Lamp.
Any room that has a high and unusual moisture level, such as a bathroom, sauna, laundry room or kitchen (steam from cooking). Don’t leave the Salt Lamp on a covered deck or patio since night air is often humid. Rain can also destroy the Salt Lamp if you leave it out. Himalayan Salt Lamps should be kept in dry areas. As long as you keep it away from too much water, your Salt Lamp will give you years of normal ion output.
When you combine the beauty of the Himalayan Salt Lamps with the benefits they provide, It’s an attractive addition to create a relaxing environment in the home.
