Why is salt lamp Perfect for the house

One of the most attractive elements of the alternative and healthy living industries is the fact that they encourage a lot of out of the box thinking and different approaches to personal comfort and wellness from all over the world. At any point, a new trend might emerge that will take the community by storm, adding to people’s lives in ways that they might never have even imagined possible.

As with any industry, however, the need for caution and consumer awareness is as important as ever. You’re ready to be open to new ideas about and approaches towards personal wellness, yes, but you also want to make sure that you do your due diligence, sift through the facts, and make an informed decision. After all, once a fad takes off, it can be all too difficult to sort out fact from fiction.

Case in point – Himalayan salt lamps. Since they hit the scene a while ago, they have rapidly become one of the biggest must-have alternative wellness items out there.

So, what are Himalayan salt lamps, what do they offer, and how might they fit in your home?

Himalayan Salt Lamps 101

First, let’s take a bit of time to explain what these salt lamps are. For those not in the know, Himalayan salt lamps are a special type of lamp that combines pink salt mined from the Himalayas with a little light bulb and stand. When you look for them online on sites such as Amazon, you’ll find them in a wide variety of shapes and colors, making them a natural option for those looking to show off a little alternative flair in their décor. The light shines its spot within a covering made from the pink salt in a dim, diffused manner – and that’s part of what makes these items such a hit.

The diffused way in which the light diffuses through the lamp shades made from Himalayan pink salt is said to be extremely soothing. It is bright enough to allow you to see, but dim enough so as to create the effect of a low-lit, intimate, ambient space – perfect for entertaining in your living room in the evening or resting in bed before falling asleep at night. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Himalayan salt lamps have been a big hit as a desk lamp.

Sleep Tight

It is here that we see the first big claims put forward for Himalayan salt lamps – namely, that they can improve your sleep.

Proponents of these salt lamps will tell you that they are an absolute game changer when it comes to helping them drift off to sleep at night. This is likely due in large part to the fact that, as stated, the lamp shades are constructed and arranged in such a way as to keep the light levels in a room nice and low. If you are the type of person who is very sensitive to light, these might be a great option for you. They afford just enough light to keep the room from being pitch black, while keeping it low enough not to disturb light sleepers, making it an ideal desk lamp for them.

Of Décor and Concentration

Another reason that these options are among the most popular on the market for those interested in alternative living solutions is the fact that they’re simply beautiful. The mined and carved salt that makes up the composition of these lamps can come in a dazzling array of different colors – there are oh so many shades of “pink” among the Himalayan pink salt lamp shades out there.

You’ll be able to choose from a huge range of different hues as well as textures. Whether you’re looking for sleek, smooth, lamps on the smaller side or larger, rougher-cut features for bigger, bolder splashes, these lamps really do make a decorating statement.

Of course, for as flashy as they are, these lamps aren’t distracting – on the contrary, in fact. Some have reported that the dim, nicely diffused light that these lamps give off can be a boon for those looking to enhance their concentration. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, given that we have already established how soothing and calming these lamps can be. When you’re calmer and in a better frame of mind, of course concentration becomes all the easier.

Both the décor boost and the purported potential to up your ability to concentrate in an ambient, calming space are yet two more ticks in the “pro” column for these Himalayan salt lamps.

Additional Claims

What about other claims made by proponents of these types of salt lamps, however? How well do they stack up?

For example, one of the most commonly cited reasons that a lamp like this is so worthwhile is that they are supposedly able to release negative ions, which in turn are supposed to be able to help boost your energy.

Another big claim made by advocates of these types of Himalayan salt lamps is that they are able to act as air purifiers, making the air you breathe that much cleaner.

The overall thrust of these claims is an argument that there is something that these lamps release that makes a space purer or healthier, and that they can even help with allergies.

The situation regarding evidence for such claims, however, remains far more complex. On the one hand, there is more research needed to confirm most of the bolder claims made above, such as those about air purification. Certainly you should not use this desk lamp or any other alternative approach to wellness as a wholesale substitute for allergy medicines or any other form of medication.

That being said, there is some evidence to suggest that a lamp like this can indeed help people feel more soothed and relaxed, which in turn can help them sleep easier or concentrate better. While more research is needed to establish a definitive causal link, at the very least, these lamps look lovely and can prove quite calming on a decorative and mood-centric basis.

All in all, while there’s far more to still be researched and proven in a proper peer reviewed fashion, there’s already a lot to like about the aesthetic and calming qualities of Himalayan salt lamps.
