Salt Lamps
By: April Lugo PhD
Salt lamps come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in a variety of styles. They can range from being a hollowed out chunk of salt, chunks of salt added to a bowl or basin where heat will be applied.. They can also be carved out special designs. The salt is mined from such places as the Himalayas, Russia, and central Europe. They lamps come in a variety of colors as well from dark pink, and yellow.
How they work
Salt lamps are constructed of salt, mostly Himalayan. The lamps are constructed so that either a tiny bulb 40 watt or lower, or a candle can be placed within the space of the lamp. When the salt lamp is heated it produces a release of ions into the air which then begins to clean the air.
Much like when you go to the ocean or sea shore. The air is easier to breath, you will find that your nasal passages clear this is a similar affect the salt lamps can create within a living space.
When using a salt lamp they can appear to be attractive accent lights, night lights, and a method of clearing and cleaning space.
When used in a home where the air can and often does become stagnate the salt lamp can help clear up that stagnation when the salt is heated. The ions begin to flow throughout the space and collect the stagnation particles and clean the area.
Placing a salt lamp in the office at work can help with computer static is emitted, florescent lighting is used, and pollutants are present. They may be used much like the “ionic air cleaners” that are in the market today, only they are natural and much more attractive.
Some benefits of having a salt lamp can include helping allergy suffers, improved concentration. In certain rooms it can create a soothing, relaxing calm refreshing environment.
The salt lamp will help keep wellness in living areas by offering clean ionized air around you naturally and beautiful. Depending on the size of the area a small lamp may do or a larger lamp will be of benefit.
Metaphysical Aspects
When working in a vibrational place where old stagnate energy has been held up the salt lamp can help clean and clear these energies from the space. Have you ever been in a place where it just kind of feels icky or almost scary? A salt lamp will often times clean and clear this energy out of a space.
For example: Have you ever gone into some ones home and you can tell that there had been an argument there. You can feel the tension. Having a salt lamp to help clean that negative energy or ions from the atmosphere can help clean and remove that static.
You can get salt lamps from many different places and you can pay many different prices.
