Himalayan Salt Lamp Health Benefits and How They Work

Himalayan Salt Lamp Health Benefits include:

  • Natural Air Ionizers
  • EMF Balancers
  • Beautiful Holistic Light Sources
  • Functional Works of Art
  • Color Therapy



Negative ions are like a triple ristretto macchiato, supercharging you for your day to come. The fresh air released by So Well’s Himalayan Salt Lamps naturally invigorates and refreshes us, combating the harmful effects of air pollution and EM radiation that permeates modern life. Water crashing along a seashore also creates negative ions, which creates that stimulating experience when we walk along the beach. Now you can have that I’m-outdoors-and-I’m-loving-it feeling when you’re in your home or office, unable to getaway to a neighboring tropical island. Himalayan Salt Lamps are made to recreate this feeling.

You see, negative ions have been shown by numerous studies to alleviate the effects of severe asthma and bronchitis. Babies don’t cry as often in fresh, negatively ionized air, as they do when they are indoors with positively ionized, surrounding air—I know, can you believe it? Buy ten!

Not only that, but many airborne viruses cannot survive in negatively ionized air, so you don’t have to worry about taking sick days to stay at home with the kids. Those sick days are for you to enjoy—and never sick.

Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. But that’s not all. Not only do negative ions help our mood, they are also natural air purifiers.

Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that a small quantity of negative ions can kill bacteria and quickly remove them from the air thereby reducing the chance of infection. So Well Himalayan Salt Lights are an excellent source of negative ions. If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or immunity problems, our salt lights can give your entire system a boost. Himalayan salt is even strong enough to reduce mold, fungus, and other bacteria from your air, so that you can breathe – and rest – easy. By creating a balance of ions in the air, they stimulate natural drive and healthy energy.

Sounds great right? But how exactly do Himalayan salt lamps release these negative ions? The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt’s ability to first absorb water, and then evaporate it. When a light warms, it attracts water molecules from the air to its surface. Negative ions build up and are then released. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing. The ions cleanse the air of harmful dust, electro smog, bacteria and other toxins. As a result, the salt crystal light improves air quality and your body’s health.



One of the issues nearly everyone faces today is exposure to EMFs, or electromagnetic fields. Actually, electromagnetic fields are essential to life on earth. An electromagnetic belt surrounds the Earth. Every form of life depends on this electromagnetic field of vibration, known as the Schuman resonance frequency. The Schuman resonance frequency states that the average resonance frequency of this belt—the resonance frequency of the earth—is 7.83 Hz (cycles) per second, which can be measured via EEG in the human brain.

The EMF of a typical television or computer monitor, however, is approximately 100-160Hz. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness, insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system.

Crystal salt, in its neutral state, exhibits an exact frequency oscillation value of 8-10 cycles per second. The lit salt light therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.


Not only are So Well Himalayan salt lamps used to spruce up outdated décor, with our Zen-inspired, wooden bases hand-carved from ecologically sustainable wood such as neem, and not only do they release these precious negative ions, but they also emit a holistic light. Our Himalayan salt lamps release lovely, warming shades of deep reds, orange, apricot, whites and rare Smokey grays.

Our Himalayan salt lamps have been shown to emit light that soothes and relaxes, while focusing the mind. This effect, known as “Color Therapy” or chromotherapy, has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of various illnesses, helping you to focus the mind.


How Many Salt Lamps Do I Need?

So Well’s Himalayan Salt Lamps are like plants, the more you have in your home or office, the better they are at cleansing the surrounding air, creating a soothing environment that can help you focus the mind while invigorating the body—like Kundalini yoga in a salt lamp. Start with one or two salt lamps, and you will begin to feel the healing benefits, add more when you can and create your own oasis- trust me, you will feel it
