Salt Lamp Bowls

A salt lamp bowl is a type of Himalayan salt lamp that has a bowl carved from Himalayan salt. This bowl has a light bulb inside and is filled with Himalayan salt chunks. The colour of the light bulb can be changed to vary the ambience given off by the salt lamp bowl. It can be white, yellow, or even a reddish-orange.

Himalayan salt is mined from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in the Punjab region of Pakistan. This salt is a pinkish colour and it is made up of 98 percent sodium chloride and two percent trace minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. These trace minerals give it the pinkish colouring.

One very popular lamp is the Himalayan salt lamp fire bowl. This beautiful handcrafted salt lamp bowl gives off the feel and glow of a fire. The light bulb can have a dimmer switch so that you can have exactly the lighting you desire. The bowl is handcrafted from Himalayan salt and it offers the same incredible benefits as other Himalayan salt lamps.

Benefits of Salt Lamp Bowls

In addition to creating a relaxing and peaceful mood, these salt lamp bowls help to improve the air quality and neutralise positive ions emitted by electronics, mold, pollen, and other allergens. Through a process called hygroscopy, Himalayan salt will attract water molecules in the air that carry dust, pet dander, smoke, and other pollutants when it is heated by the light bulb. These particles will settle on the salt instead of settling and being absorbed by your body.

In addition, the heat causes the Himalayan salt in the salt lamp bowl to release negative ions that will neutralise positive ions emitted by electronics, mold, and other substances. This helps to prevent them from being absorbed into your body, which also has negatively charged ions. As a result, you will sleep better, feel less lethargic, and experience better moods.

Finally, the effect of having a bowl crafted from Himalayan salt lit by a light bulb is amazing for your frame of mind. It restores balance to your mental state, just as sitting by a campfire might. This is a safe way to recreate the positive energy of a natural fire right in your home.
