You’ve probably seen a lot of salt lamps providing ambient lighting in YouTube videos. I have to admit that they look pretty cool. But did you know they may actually have some health benefits as well?
Most salt lamps feature a uniquely formed salt crystal with a light bulb inside. As the light bulb produces heat, the salt crystal can evaporate any moisture it has absorbed. This process creates negative ions and releases them into the air. If you’ve ever purchased an electronic air purifier, you’ve probably seen that an “ionizer” is a prominent feature. A heated salt crystal is essentially an ionizer.
So what’s the deal with ionizers and negative ions? Negatives ions (created by an ionizer or other source, such as lightning), attach themselves to dust and other pollutants, essentially making them too heavy to be air borne and they instead fall to the floor. Hey, better on the floor than in your lungs, right?
There is also some talk that ionizers, such as a Himalayan salt lamp, can affect your mood by decreasing stress and increasing energy. Everybody is different, so while it may not work for everyone, what’s the risk in trying?

Here are some of the features of this lamp:
- Includes a 10W incandescent
bulb with a lamp shade of Himalayan crystal salt.
- The heated crystal salt
lampshade can absorb water and then evaporate it, releasing negative ions into the air, creating an effect similar to an ionizer and purifying the surrounding air.
- Plugs directly into the wall
with no cords or extra space needed.
- The 3-prong plug is 270°
rotatable and can be fixed at 0°/90°/180°/270°.
