Read on for I will answer that in a simple and practical way. No exaggeration and hard selling included. Hehe!
Scientists know that salt does absorb water from the air but that it quickly reaches an equilibrium state (it doesn’t take up anymore water because it is saturated). This is the same for silica packets. Both can be revitalized by drying, which a burning and warming lamp does. So there is merit to this claim. What’s more is that the heat from the bulb inside that warms up the lamp releases . And there are the health-boosting effects of itself too." -www.criticalcactus.com
As I have been researching before purchasing, I find that this is the best and simplest explanation that I needed to push me with my decision of getting a himalayan salt lamp.
The downside with himalayan salt lamps is that, they kind of "melt" slooooowly through time. I have noticed that there were salt crystals falling around it whenever I wipe the table wherein the salt lamp was put on. They won't melt fast though so no worries and I think that it might take several years or a decade before my 5-6 kg himalayan salt lamp melt off completely. It happens because of the humidity, the moisture from the air affects the himalayan salt causing it to melt. Remember, do NOT wet your salt lamps for it will make them melt faster!
Improves your mood, reduces stress? Check! Looking at the salt lamp is soothing not just for the eyes but it also has a calming energy that affects the whole vibe, y'know.
Improves sleeping? Check! if you're afraid of the dark but bothered with a fully lit room, then the dim pinkish-orange lighting of himalayan salt lamps are perfect: not too dark and not too bright, just right!
Increases blood flow, energy levels, and boosts serotonin level? Hmmm... I can't tell but I think it's more of like, if you've got a good night sleep, it helps well with good blood circulation, and if you are well-rested then you will feel happier, more productive, and healthier, am I right? Hehe...
Improves breathing and reduces asthma symptoms? Hmmm, the air might be purified better than without this salt lamp BUT of course, you have to make sure that your room is regularly cleaned and not collecting weeks of dirt and dust to avoid getting colds and allergic rhinitis. You can't just rely on himalayan salt lamps to do the job, you gotta do something about it too! I don't have asthma so I can't comment on whether it helps with that kind of problem or not...
I find it best to use after cleansing your skin with your favorite bathing soap or body wash to make sure that any residue will be removed.
Since I've got 5 of these nasal inhalers, I compared them to each other and I have noticed that they smelled differently from each other. They all have peppermint essential oil in them alright, but some have a stronger scent while the other had little to no scent at all. However, I was given an assurance that it is alright since the healing benefits come from the himalayan salt themselves and are not reliant on the essential oil within.
Did you know that during the old times, salt were considered really precious that soldiers were getting salt as salary? The men of old knew that aside from that fact that salt are healthy (and yummy) when mixed with food, they are also used in rituals for beautification, prosperity, and expelling bad spirits! Wooohhh!
I have been using this once a week for a few weeks now and I must say that this is effective. The himalayan salts removed dead skin cells gently while the oils infused in here moisturized the skin. Exfoliating your skin is a must if you want your skin to look glowing. Failing to do so makes your skin rough to the touch and dull to look at, you wouldn't want that! As for using salt scrubs, remember to rub them lightly onto the skin to avoid overexfoliation, irritation, and scratches.
What you need?
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or coconut oil will do)
- 1 half cup of salt (rock salt, sea salt, epsom salt, himalayan salt will do)
What to do?
Mix the salt and oil really well. After showering with soap and water, rinse yourself. While your skin is still damp, spread the oil and salt mixture all over your body from your neck down to your feet. Let it stay for 3 mins. Rinse well with water.
Observe its effect and it will be like as if a huge load was lifted from your shoulders! That's it, dear readers, you're welcome! 💖
