The Benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp or Candle Holder

IMG_1134I love the feeling of being out in nature in the fresh air beside a waterfall or on the beach, but the truth is that sometimes I get stuck inside working on my computer for hours on end. Being around electronics and stuffy, stale air can make you feel sluggish, tired and just plain yucky, but in this day and age the cure isn’t as simple as just spending the day outside.

That’s why I decided to buy a Himalayan salt candle holder. Basically, the idea behind Himalayan salt lamps and candle holders is that they emit negative ions, which are usually found in nature and are generated from things like waterfalls and lightning storms. Negative ions help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated because they increase oxygen flow to the brain. They can also get rid of yucky things that may be floating in the stale air in your home, helping to ward off allergies.

Positive ions, on the other hand, are emitted by electronics and despite their name, they aren’t great for your mood or your general well-being.

Overall, they improve the air quality of your home and detoxify the general atmosphere of your environment. Just having my candle holder close by while I’m surfing Instagram or watching TV makes me feel so relaxed and refreshed.

Plus, salt crystals are so naturally beautiful! Just looking at a Himalayan salt lamp or candle holder gives me such a calm, tranquil feeling. They really help to create a peaceful, welcoming atmosphere in any space. Even if they didn’t have so many amazing health benefits, I’d probably buy one anyway just to accessorize!

IMG_1120A Himalayan salt lamp or candle holder makes for such a lovely, healthy addition to any space. Not only are they beautiful, but they also help to reverse some of the negative  (or should I say positive?) effects of the technological revolution.

Surrounding yourself with positive vibes is so essential to your health and well-being, so why not accessorize your space with a Himalayan salt lamp? They’re super affordable and you can usually find them at most health and wellness stores – just look for the calming glow and you’re set!
