How Does a Himalayan Salt Lamp Work?

Hello and welcome to JADa Therapy

Himalayan salt lamps are becoming more and more popular but how does a Himalayan salt lamp work? And why should you have one.

These are attractive looking lamps, but they are much more than just a night light.

Himalayan salt lamps are really good at filtering impurities from the air among other things.

Himalayan salt lamps can improve your mind, body and soul and here’s how they work.

How Does A Himalayan Salt Lamp Work?

Salt is hygroscopic which is a scientific word meaning that salt attracts water molecules from the environment.

Water molecules float around in every room in your home.  But water molecules are not the only invisible substance that is floating around your home.

  • Dust
  • Pollen
  • Mould
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses

And other allergens that be carried around in these water molecules.

Himalayan salt lamp works by attracting the water molecules in your room.  It pulls the pollutants and contaminants attached to these molecules.

It basically detoxifies your room by capturing and holding these particles so that they are not floating around your room and you and your family are not breathing them in.

The bulb will then heat the lamp and the purified water vapour is released back into the air and the salt will retain the contaminants.

Now here’s the really good bit.

The hygroscopic benefits

Himalayan salt lamps also release negative ions in the surrounding environment.  Negative ions are simply oxygen atoms with an extra electron.

These negative ions occur naturally in nature with water, air, and sunlight.  This can give you a rejuvenated feeling.  A feeling of being outside with nature so to speak.

You can take a look are the variety of different designs right HERE.
