1. A Himalayan Salt Lamp Cleanses the Air you breathe and deodorizes the air

Here at Embrace we get asked all the time what are the benefits of having Himalayan Salt Lamps and I find myself always answering with this first… the salt lamp will cleanse and deodorize the air. It is that pure and simple!

I describe it like being at the beach and inhaling all that amazing salt into your body. There is always that feeling of freshness and cleanliness in the beach side air, and so it is with your salt lamp. The salt as this unbelievable way of removing pollen, dust, mildew or mold, cigarette smoke and any other nasties lurking in the air that could cause problems with allergies and pollution.

If you are wondering how this is done it is simpler than you think. When your lamp heats up from being turned on it evaporates water into the air and is very cleverly able to trap any particles of the bad stuff such as smoke or dust back into the salt. Inventive huh? Well that is mother nature in her finest working for you!


2. Himalayan Salt Lamps are able to neutralize electromagnetic radiation in the air

Due to the computer technology age a sad fact of our lives these days is that we are living in a vast sea of electromagnetic radiation or pollution. This comes from our devices such as TV’s, mobile phones, our computers, appliances, ipads, ipods, the list goes on and on… These electromagnetic partices are invisible to the naked eye yet they can cause so much havac within our bodies and our pshyce such as fatigue, anxiety, increased levels of stress, weak immunity systems, dehydration etc. Sadly, all this electromagnetic radiation can have serious effects to our health.

What I love about Himalayan Salt Lamps is that they are able to work in order to neutraliaze electromagnetic radiation. It is always handy to have a small USB computer lamp plugged into your computer or other electrical devices that you use on a daily basis. Embrace stocks a variety of the USB salt lamps and they come in the most brightest stunning colours too!

3. Himalayan Salt Lamps are Allergy and Asthma busters!

Himalayan Salt Lamps are a great way to help with any allergy or asthma suffers you have living in your home. Why? This is because the lamps are able to remove any microscopic particles of dust or anything that is bad for you by having lamps turned on your bedrooms, living rooms or even your work space. This is why we like to sell the Himalayan Salt Inhalers at Embrace. They are a great way of directly inhaling the pink salt right into your lungs making you feel fresh and clean.

If you suffer from hay fever, asthma, allergies and sinus related problems then it a non-negotiable argument that you need a salt lamp!

4. Himalayan Salt Lamps help to ease coughing and sneezing

My daughter seems to get a very bad cough every winter and spring and I have found that placing a Himalayan Salt Lamp in her room eases it every single time. This seems to work for her because once the lamp has heated it is able to change the airborne particles in the air which therefore changes the molecules that are breathed into our body.

Our local doctor described it to me like this.. there are a lot of imcroscopic little hair type particles in air very polluted air which tend to line our windpipes when we breath them in. The Himalayan Salt Lamp has this uncanny way of absorbing water and particles from the air and are able to take the polluted air with it. The heated salt is then able to release a water type vapor in to the air allowing you to breath much clearer.

As for my daughter, she is now able to breathe in a much cleaner filtered air without having to breathe in any foreign particles and her lungs are nice and fresh and increases your immune system.

The salt the lamps emit in the air are also a great aid in the healing process when you are not feeling too well, especially when you are experience flu like symptoms or allegies.

5. They make great night lamps and give you a better sleep

Our Himalayan Salt Lamp has been a great life saver in our home as it acts with a dual purpose. It is always kept on at night to create an ambient mood but also as a great night lamp. The kids have no trouble to go to the bathroom on their own at night and we don’t need to stumble across furniture and bump our toes whilst trying to tip-toe around.

When you have negative ions in the air you will find that it is very possible that it can rob you of a good night’s sleep. Keep your Himalalyan Salt Lamp on and you won’t need to count the sheep no more as the pink salt is naturally cleansing the air so you can get a good flow of oxygen to your blood whilst you sleep!


6. Himalayan Salt Lamps helps to increase your energy levels

Do you find walking along the beach a relaxing yet invigorating experience? What about when you drive down the countryside or somewhere when the lawn has just been cut and you can inhale the fresh vibrating air? The reason you feel this intense energy surge is because the environment you are in does not emit any negative ions in the air which tend to sap us of our energy levels. Try popping on a Himalayan Salt Lamp in the room you are and watch your energy levels increase. Why do you think Embrace is always pumping? It’s because our shop air is filled with the positive energy that our salt lamps emit and our customers always walk out filling on top of the world!

A cheap way to reduce stress and depression without the need for anti-depressant drugs, salt lamps also give off a natural ambient light. Some say the light is close to the glow of the sun and it can help to relieve symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. I like popping my light on early in the shorter days of the year

7. Himalayan Salt Lamps help to improve your mood and concentrate better

When you inhale the positive clean air that your Himalayan Salt Lamp puts out in your environment you are inhaling a great deal of clean oxygen that gets circulated through your blood system which improves your brain and memory recall. Whats more you get an extra boost of serontonin the “feel good” hormone. When your feel clean and energetic from the inside yoru mood automatically lifts and you feel much more relaxed and fresh. Your mind is clearer to think more straight and having your lamp on is a must if you are studying.

8. Himalayan Salt Lamps help reduce odour in the air

A great and easy way to reduce odour from your environment, Himalayan Salt Lamps have been known to even reduce cigarette smoke! No more smells from smokers, mold, dampness or teenage boys bedrooms!

9. Himalayan Salt Lamps are environmentally friendly

Yes that is right, Himalayan Salt Lamps are extremely economical and environmentally friendly. According to sources there are still so many reserves from where the salt rocks are mined from that they believe it will last another 350 years if the continue to extract it the same way they are doing so now. Even the base of the salt lamps are made from a sustainable wood. The bulb that is used in the lamps consumes very little energy and they last almost forever! I haven’t changed mine at all this whole entire year and I have mine on every single day!

10. Himalayan Salt Lamps are the latest trend in homewares and make good Feng Shui

How to choose your Himalayan Salt Lamp

Coverage is determined by the size of the crystal when it comes to buying Himalayan Salt Lamps. Smaller lamps are more suitable for bedrooms while you may need two lamps for rooms such as the living or dining rooms. On average you can calculate that 1 lb of HPS crystals will cleanse the air in approximately a 4'x4' area.

You can also use lots of lamps if you don’t want one larger one in your room. It will give you the same effect plus add some extra ambience to your space.

I recommend you build a whole home collection of lamps even if you just start with one or two. Start by purchasing appropriately-sized lamps for those areas where you spend the most time, then move on to rooms with lots of electrical devices, and finish your collection by adding lamps to infrequently-used spaces.

Caring for your Himalayan Salt Lamps

Remember, Himalayan pink salt crystals will begin to melt with prolonged exposure to high humidity. For this reason, use caution and keep a close watch on any Himalayan Salt Lamps positioned near sources of steam such as dishwashers, laundry machines, or showers.

I find that if I don’t turn on my lamp for some time it tends to “weep” so it is important that you keep it on a saucer, a doylee or something that will protect the furniture you have it placed on.

Results of negative ion generation may take about a week to be noticeable, so don’t give up if you don’t feel the improvement right away.

How do Himalayan Salt Lamps work?

Salt crystal lamps are natural negative ions generators. Salt is naturally hygroscopic which means it naturally attracts more moisture. The interaction of humid air with the surface of a salt crystals releases negative ions. When a salt crystal is heated slightly, it generates negative ions. In order to facilitate this, a small bulb, usually 7 to 40 wats or a tea light is placed inside a salt crystal. Therefore it is important to remember that any salt crystal lamp or tea light holder under normal conditions will only generate negative ions when it is warmed by the itnernal light bulb or tea light. When heated the negative ions bind to air pollutants.This causes them to lower to the ground level, leaving the air fresh.

The size of the salt crystal lamp and the conditions of the surrounding area, will ultimately determine the radiant effect of a negative ion discharge.


Salt lamps have the ability to draw moisture from the surrounding atmosphere. Salt crystal lamps should never be sprinkled with water or kept in a moist place. Sometimes, in moist or humid conditions the surface of the lamp may be slightly damp when touch. Lighting it for a few hours will dry it very quickly. Any crystallization occurred due to the moisture can be wiped with a damp cloth.

It is recommended that the lamp be light every day for best air purifying results. Salt crystal lamp can also be left on as long as possible to maintain the constant negative ionizing process and to repel excess moisture around the area.

If you plan not to use the lamp for long period of time just put a plastic bag over the lamp to protect it from humidity and moisture.

For cleaning of the salt lamp gently wipe the lamp with a damp (not soaking wet) towel or sponge to remove dust. Once cleaned, dry the lamp with a paper towel or turn on the lamp for a while.
