General Information on Salt Lamps and Pink Himalayan Salt

Himalayan pink salt lamps help clean the air through an operation called hygroscopy, which attracts and absorbs contaminated water molecules from the immediate environment and locks them into the salt crystal.  The process has the amazing ability to remove cigarette smoke, dust and other contaminants from the air.

Himalayan salt is a rock salt that is pink in colour and rich in minerals, including calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sodium and zinc.  Farmed from the Himalayan mountains, this salt is commonly used in food preparation as well as in bath soaks.

Try adding a few chunks of this salt to your bath to help increase relaxation, detox the body, improve circulation and remineralize the skin.  Himalayan salt has antibacterial properties and is often helpful with eczema and psoriasis.
