Himalayan salt lamps carry many benefits. One of those benefits is helping to ease your allergy symptoms.
According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, there are more than 50 million Americans that suffer from allergies every year. T
hat’s roughly 15% of the entire American population.
That means there’s a good chance that you have, or are, suffering from allergies.
If that’s the case, you know how uncomfortable it can be trying to live your daily life with itchy eyes, a runny nose, and a scratchy throat.
Luckily, there are several allergy treatments available, and surprisingly enough, your Himalayan Salt Lamp may be one of them.
In this article, we will take a brief look at how your Himalayan Salt Lamp can help ease your allergies.
Himalayan Salt Lamps: Cleansing Your Air
The air inside of our homes is often more polluted than we realize. Even the cleanest among us still have dust, dander, and other tiny particles floating around their house despite their best efforts.
And during peak allergy season, there is no way to prevent common allergens from getting tracked inside of your home.
Beyond keeping your air filters clean, dusting, and vacuuming, you can improve the quality of the air in your home with Himalayan Salt Lamps.
Your Himalayan Salt Lamp naturally attracts microscopic particles of dust, mold, and pet dander to their surface through a process called hygroscopy.
Hygroscopy means that your lamp attracts water molecules from the air bringing along any foreign particles in their path.
When the water eventually comes into contact with the lamp, it evaporates. The particles that went with the water are left behind on the lamp, no longer in the air, letting you breathe easy.
Just remember there is only so much one lamp can do on its own. To make sure your entire house is cleansed, you need to maintain a thorough cleaning regimen and strategically place several Himalayan Salt lamps around your home.
Reduce Positive Ions With Salt Rock Lamps
If it wasn’t bad enough already, allergy symptoms are often amplified indoors because our modern homes are filled with positive ions given off by our electronic devices.
Everything from your cell phone to your computer and TV all generates positive ions.
These ions can compromise your immune system, irritate your lungs, and worsen your allergies.
Getting a Himalayan Salt Lamp can help mitigate these effects because they minimize the number of positive ions in your home.
A genuine Himalayan Salt Lamp will give off natural negative ions that neutralize the positive ions.
This leaves you feeling refreshed with a renewed sense of energy. When the negative ions neutralize the positive ions, it can help reduce your allergy symptoms so you can breathe easy.
If your home is filled with electronics, it will also be filled with the positive ions that they put off.
All of the positive ions in your home will need to be neutralized. Investing in several Himalayan Salt products will help you neutralize them.
Although we will never claim that a Himalayan Salt Lamp is the silver bullet that will cure all of your allergies, they do have several benefits that can help reduce your runny eyes, sniffing, and sneezing.
They work best when used with other treatment methods.
