History and more information about Himalayan Salt Lamps

Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps

The first-ever evidence of mining this healing salt dates back to the 1200s by the Janjua people. The Khewra Salt Mines in Jhelum District at the foothills of the Salt Range hill system in Punjab province of Pakistan to the Indo-Gangetic Plain is one of the main places from where most of the Himalayan salt is mined.

Under the Pothohar Plateau south of the Himalayas towards the southern edge of a fold-and-thrust belt popularly known as the Salt Range Mountains is where the Himalayan salt is mined from. The natural salt or mineral deposits are left after the evaporation from the highly folded, faulted, and stretched thick layer of Ediacaran to early Cambrian of the Salt Range Formation.

Mineral Composition of Himalayan Rock Salt

The Himalayan salt is chemically similar to common table salt but most of these salts which are mined in the Himalayas are not suitable for edible or industrial use due to the impurities it holds. Some salt crystals which are mined from the Himalayan region or the Indo-Gangetic Plains are off-white or transparent color while other salts that are mined have a pink, reddish, or beet-red color due to the impurities present in some veins of salt.

According to compound analysis, 96% of Himalayan salt is sodium chloride while the remaining content comprises typical minerals that are present in minute quantities.

Himalayan salt is also popularly known as the pink salt (as it usually exhibits orange-pink color shades). As mentioned above, this rock salt is harvested from areas near the Himalayan Mountains and is believed to be one of the purest forms of salt available on planet Earth. This salt comprises traces of minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron, and iron oxide which gives it its pink hue.


What are Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps?

Himalayan Rock Salt lamps are lamps that are made out of pink and orange shaded salt. These lamps are used as decorative lights that add to the beauty of the home décor in addition to emitting energies that are healing and beatific.

The divine Himalayan Rock Salt lamps are elegantly crafted by placing the light bulb carefully inside large chunks of Himalayan salt also known as the pink Himalayan salt. These lamps have a distinctive glow that soothes the mind and soul. The warm pink lights which are emitted from this Lamp are simply magnificent.


Himalayan Rock salt lamps provide a wide range of health and environmental benefits. These lamps when installed at home emit energies that spread positivity and harmony. Let us take a look at what Himalayan salt lamps are good for.

The Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps are finely crafted from natural pieces of Himalayan salt crystals. There are many diverse functions of Himalayan salt that extend far beyond aesthetics. Combined with a light source inside the lamps, the chunks of salt produce negative ions which yield positive effects on indoor air. The real Himalayan Pink Rock Salt lamp benefits are listed below:


Among many advantages, the following are the Himalayan Salt crystal lamp healing properties:

Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps
  • Stabilizes Electromagnetic Radiation

    Positive ions are constantly released in the air through electrical appliances such as cellular phones, television, computers, tablets, etc. These electric appliances emit electromagnetic radiation (EM) which although invisible can cause serious damage to our body. Constant exposure to electromagnetic radiations through laptops and mobile phones can increase stress levels, cause fatigue, and weaken the immune system.

    In such conditions, having a Himalayan Rock Salt lamp at home or next to the work desk is important as it emits negative ions which destroy the excess positive ions and thus, neutralize the electromagnetic radiation. The negative ions help reduce artificial frequencies and even prevent static build-up.
  • Purifies, Freshens, and Enhances Air quality

    The Himalayan pink salt lamps clean the air through a process called Hygroscopy. It is the process in which contaminated water molecules from the surrounding environment are attracted, absorbed, and locked into the salt crystal. This entire process is so powerful and amazing that it can remove cigarette smoke, dust, and other contaminants from the air. Thus, the salty air acts as an overall health booster and helps to clear the air passages.
  • Improves Breathing

    Our windpipe has finite hair that lines up from the start to the end. These hair are known as Cilia and act like microscopic breathing filters. Research has proven that positive ions cause hindrance in the smooth functioning of the Cilia activity whereas the negative ions emitted from the Himalayan Rock Salt lamps improve the breathing process and prevent foreign particles from entering the Lungs, thus keeping the Lungs clean.
  • Helps reduce Coughing and Other Symptoms of the Common Cold

    The negative ions that are released by Himalayan Rock Salt lamps help to safeguard from airborne germs. Apart from removing the pollutants that contaminate the air, the Himalayan Rock Salt also allows the body to filter air more effectively and works towards successfully blocking the foreign particles from entering into the lungs. All this can help in preventing symptoms of the common cold which include coughing, sneezing, sore throats, and other minor symptoms.
  • Reduces Allergies and Asthma

    The dust, mildew, and pet dander from indoor air are believed to be filtered by the Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps. Similar to the nasal saline spray which makes use of salt to clear airways, the Himalayan Rock Salt lamps help to relieve allergy symptoms of all kinds. People who have asthma can benefit from Himalayan salt. Many manufacturers have learned that the Himalayan Rock Salt is an effective breathing aid and hence, few of these manufacturers have produced Himalayan salt inhalers which are for people who are suffering from asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues.
  • Increases Blood Flow

    Few studies suggest that negative ions like those emitted by Himalayan Rock Salt lamps can offer aid in accelerating the blood flow. This boost in blood flow helps to improve several disorders of the vascular system. This can also lead to protecting the lungs from certain damage.
  • Improves Focus and Performance

    When we are exposed to negative ions, the stress levels are reduced thus boosting our mood. This in turn has a positive impact on our overall performance. The blood and oxygen supply to the brain is increased by the negative ions hence helping in better concentration. These negative ions boost the neurotransmitter serotonin which generates the feeling of happiness.
  • Boosts Energy Levels

    Our body energy is depleted because of the Positive ions. The Himalayan Rock Salt lamps through their negative ions increase the energy levels which makes us feel refreshed and rejuvenated. This effect is similar to the emotion we feel when we spend time in nature, relaxed, and at peace.
  • Effective for Insomnia

    The blood in the brain and the supply of oxygen is reduced if exposure to the positive ions is more or exceeds the normal capacity. This leads to unhealthy sleeping patterns. The Himalayan Rock Salt lamp on the other hand reverses this effect through the negative ions, thus proving to be a beneficial tool offering undisturbed sound sleep. The soothing light that is emitted from Himalayan Rock Salt lamps helps people suffering from insomnia.
  • Lifts Mood

    According to a few research findings and studies, the negative ions helps boost mood and uplift the energy levels by increasing serotonin in the brain. Thus, the Himalayan Rock Salt lamps offer aid to people who suffer from the seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other forms of depression.
  • Alleviates Stress and Helps Relax

    The color and the light of the Himalayan Rock Salt lamps can be used as a color therapy (chromotherapy) for treating a large number of illnesses. The soft light produced by this lamp in hues of ambient pink, orange, yellow, and red helps to relieve stress, works on attention deficit disorder, and offers relaxation of mind and body. The serene light emitting from natural Himalayan Rock Salt lamps helps to balance the physical, spiritual, and emotional energies.

    Dear Madam, I have received items against order no 5273. I cant resist reiterating that the quality of the various pooja items is very very good and at a very low price.

  • Rudraksh is kavach

    So sorry to hear you had accident on bike with cycle but very glad you escaped with slight injuries. Most important is that you are fine although there was some damage to the bike. Rudraksh is like kavach. Wearing of rudraksh helps prevent major things. From previous experience, this sort of thing may occur when there are some malefic influences in person's chart that may result in bigger problem if they were not wearing rudraksh. Usually people sometimes choose rudraksh by instinct to wear, without realizing the mukhi they selected is the most suitable one for their astral chart at a specific close

  • Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion and ambrosial nectar of kindness.

    There was a beautiful comment made by someone on this site, about their wonderful experience during the Mahashivratri Puja and how they were looked after and cared for, so lovingly by Neetaji. Two years ago I chanced upon the Rudraksha-Ratna website and met a person who not only became a catalyst to my biggest spiritual evolution, but I also found the Guru and the Divine Mother that I have yearned, for millions of births. It is so truly said that "God could not be present everywhere, all the time, so he created the heart of a Mother". Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion close
