Himalayan Salt Moon Lamp (USB)
Just ordered one to see how they look in real life and am absolutely loving these Himalayan White Salt Moon Lamps (USB). It's literally like holding a Full Super Moon in your palms!!!
USB Himalayan Salt Lamps such as these are perfect to plug into your computer or laptop to reduce the electromagnetic stress to your body, as well as the negative ions the Himalayan Salt releases when warm, which will be eating up all the positive ions your computer releases. Alternatively, you can plug it into a USB adapter plug and have as a little mini Moon wherever you like in your home or workspace.
Himalayan Lamps are solid blocks of Himalayan Salt that have been hand-carved into lamps. Deep underground mines in Khewra, Pakistan, located on the western edge of the Himalayan Mountains, are the only source of true Himalayan pink salt. The colour of Himalayan salt ranges from a light pink to a pinkish orange with the hue a result of the mineral concentration. The deepness of the salt’s color largely depends on the amount of iron oxide running through it. White Himalayan salt (the rarest variety) is the freest from impurities.
Salt is hygroscopic, which means it attracts water molecules to itself. Being the big hunk of salt that it is, a Himalayan Salt Lamp is believed to work by attracting the water molecules. This water vapour can also carry indoor air pollutants like mould, bacteria and allergens. Once the water vapour comes in contact with the salt, the pollutants are believed to remain trapped in the salt. Since the salt is heated, it dries out and is able to continue the cycle of attracting water vapour and pollutants, releasing the water vapour back into the air but holding on to the health-hazardous pollutants.
According to the Lung Institute, salt (in general) has the following health properties:
- Loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
- Removes pathogens (ie., airborne pollen)
- Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)
Himalayan Salt Lamps are said to emit negative ions in small amounts and cancel out positive ones. By neutralising electromagnetic radiation, they may help reduce the negative health effects of harmful electrosmog. Balancing positive and negative ions also may help reduce airborne infections. Why are negative ions so great? You can’t taste, smell or see them, but they’re some impressive molecules. Once negative ions reach the bloodstream, they’re believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost daytime energy.
Another possible health benefit of the Himalayan salt products is a reduction in anxiety symptoms, as a real piece of nature, Himalayan salt gives off negative ions like a waterfall (but in much smaller amounts). Since Himalayan Salt Lamps release negative ions into the air, they can help reduce anxiety and also encourage a relaxing atmosphere for sleep. Many people like to keep them in their bedrooms for their calming effect.
Please note that this is a USB lamp only with a cord and does not come with a USB adaptor plug, but they will plug into most phone charger plugs.
Powered with an LED bulb.
