What exactly does a Himalayan salt lamp do? I see them everywhere and have seen a lot of people talk about using them.
This is a really great question!
Himalayan salt lamps, also referred to as Pink Salt lamps, serve a variety of purposes.
Scientifically, the illuminated salt absorbs moisture and positive ions from the air. When this is heated, it cleanses the water vapor, releases now negative ions into the air, which is wonderful for our airways and lungs. Salt lamps are often used a lot in rooms where individuals who have allergies sleep, as it helps purify the air for them.
Metaphysically and energetically, the salt lamps help repel and keep away negative energies and negative entities. My salt lamp literally never ever gets turned off, sits happily in the corner of my bedroom, and keeps watch over my room.
It’s literally just a chunk of pink salt that has had a little space in the center of the chunk carved out, and then a base is inserted with a lightbulb attached.
And it really is salt, too. I’ve licked many a salt lamp to make sure it’s real salt as there are some fake manufacturers out there.
