Salt Lamps & Himalayan Salt

Apr 12, 2023

A little history on salt

Salt is an integral and natural part of all our body's functions. Each of our cells has salt present at the same ratio as the ocean from which all life arose. All mammals need salt and the trails of large animals walking in the wilderness between salt licks were followed by the pioneers of Europe and America. It is perhaps not surprising then, to learn that the locations of many of the world's cities and highways are based around the availability and need for salt.
Our civilisation has depended upon the salt trade as salt has always been a vital part in food preservation and was once a major part of world trade, just as oil is today. Japan is one of the largest salt consumers in the world, and interestingly they also have one of the oldest age expectancies.

The secret power of Himalayan salt crystals

Most commercial salts are refined. This means that they are created using a process which alters the compound structure of the salt crystals. Generally they are around 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% other harsh chemicals and added iodine. Other natural salts are much better for you, like sea salt etc, however they are now full of pollutants from the industrial and modern eras, like oil, mercury and other chemicals which are dumped into our oceans at alarming rates.

There are 2 key factors which make Himalayan Salt the purest and safest choice for your salt requirements.
1. Himalayan Salt is from a salt mine in Pakistan at the foot of the Himalayas where deep deposits formed around 250 million years ago, long before any man made toxins and pollutants contaminated the planet.
2. The composition of Himalayan Salt is such that it is approximately 85% sodium chloride and the remaining 15% contains up to 84 different trace elements and minerals.

Please understand that iodine is not added to this salt and it is still a requirement in your diet.

The health benefits of salt lamps

Although not a medical device salt lamps can offer assistance to those suffering from headaches, insomnia, hay fever, allergies, asthma and bronchitis. As CPAP machines, they can increase alertness, productivity, strengthen the immune system improve breathing and even reduce the chance for colds and flu. These results are attributed to the natural production of negative ions from the heated salt, which neutralise the positive and harmful ions from our modern lifestyles and environment.

Styles, sizes & shapes for everyone

Natural crystal salt lamps have a visual charm and create ambiance in your home. Not only is the light of a natural salt lamp soothing, but they give the freshness you experience after a thunderstorm. Although the crystal salts and ions are odorless, you can feel the difference breathing the energised air.

Our salt lamps can be used anywhere in the house but are recommended for smelly or smoky areas, pet areas, bedrooms and around computer monitors and TV screens. They are ideal for meditation areas, yoga rooms, spas and massage rooms.

We have a large range of salt lamps in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit any application. From small USB lamps ideal for those working on computers all day, to carved shapes and animals. These all come in a range of different sizes to suit not only the light required but the size of the room. We have orbs, natural rocks, pyramids, braziers, fire bowls and more... Come in and see our range and choose the salt lamp that is right for your needs.

Safety & Care

Salt crystals absorb moisture. This can run off your salt lamp as salty water. Salt lamps should therefore be used indoors and never placed on top of electrical appliances. Turning them on removes moisture and use of the salt lamp for 30 mins per day will stop moisture buildup. When not in use seal the salt lamp in a plastic bag or store in a dry place. To clean simply dust or wipe over with a damp rag.

Salt for the table... or perhaps the bath?

This wonderful high mineral Himalayan salt not only promotes a healthy body but tastes fantastic on your food bringing out and enhancing the flavours of any dish. The important part to remember here is that while eating such a wonderful product you are also improving your mineral uptake which is one of the essential requirements of living a longer healthier life. Mineral deficiencies can be attributed to most of the ailments in the human body or any animal for that matter.

If for some reason you don't want to add salt to your food, or are still of the opinion that salt in this manner is unhealthy, then perhaps you would prefer to add it to a bath and soak up the minerals that way instead. We have a full range of Himalayan salt products for both your bath and table. With the reported benefits of this marvelous product you would be foolish indeed not to even consider it.
