Himalayan Salt - Benefits


Since the beginning of recorded history, the beneficial properties of salt have been well known and documented. Early civilizations greatly valued salt, and used it as a trading currency as well as a preservative for food.

And generations ago, people regularly turned to salt water and salt mines for many reasons.

For years, many European countries have used salt mines and hot salt springs to promote a sense of rejuvenation.

People rest and rejuvenate in salt mines and caves (in spa-like ambiance in many cases), for periods of time to help aid their mood and overall sense of calm.

This type of rejuvenation in salt mines and caves is common.

People travel from all over the world to visit salt mines like the ones found in the Himalayas, Austria, and Germany. In Germany, the hot salt springs are so revered, companies often send overworked employees there to rejuvenate.

Why are the salt mines so beneficial?

Quite simply... the very dry, negative ion environment of a salt mine is key.

Well... even if you're not able to travel to Asia or Europe to take advantage of salt mines, you can still take advantage of these negative ions to help improve the air you breathe.

The solution involves pure Himalayan crystal salt... the same type of salt I offer on my site... the same type of salt Himalayan miners go deep into the earth to uncover.

How negative Ions impact the air you breathe

Ever breathe and experience the air around a thunderous waterfall... on a serene mountain top... at a pulsating seashore... or after a wild thunderstorm? I'm sure you have.

Remember how fresh the air felt and how easy it was for you to breathe?

Well, what you experienced was likely the result of negative ions.

See, the forces of nature through phenomena like rainstorms, waterfalls, lightning, sunlight, ocean waves, and wind, create negative ions.  

Prior to a thunderstorm, you can feel the build up of tension in the air -- the positive ions in the air are reaching their peak.

Once the storm hits, the air produces electrical charges in the atmosphere and rain falls. The resulting oxygen-rich air bursts with negative ions. And once the storm passes, you can feel the sensation of calm and clarity in the air.

The rush of negative ions helps neutralize and balance the positive ions. Many published articles and scientific studies report how negative ions in the air can have positive effects. One demonstration of that is how they potentially increase the growth rate of certain plants.


In most of these studies, sophisticated negative ion generators were used in controlled group environments -- not something you can readily recreate in your own home.


But the studies certainly give you a sense of the power of negative ions and their potential for cleansing the air you breathe.

As I suggested above, there is something you can do on a smaller scale using Himalayan crystal salt to release negative ions into your own indoor air.


Himalayan Salt Lamp





















One of the biggest challenges with crystal salt lamps is their limited range.

You can't simply place a single crystal salt lamp just anywhere in your home and expect to promote improved air quality throughout your entire house... it doesn't work that way.

But you can place a few lamps in selected areas where you spend the most time... family room... home office... bedroom, etc.

By doing this you accomplish the following...

·         Maximize your benefits from negative ions where you spend the most time


·         Help neutralize the impacts of "electro-smog" from your television and computers in specific areas where they're located

·         Enhance the beauty and serenity of selective rooms with the strikingly attractive colorful lamps


In addition to lamps, there's something else you can do to further enhance these qualities…
