Himalayan pink salt lamps have surged in popularity recently, and I’m not surprised. These beautiful large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt house a small bulb inside and offer a nice, warm glow when lit. Personally, I like them for their great source of low light.
Research shows different colors of light affect the body in different ways. Blue light, for example, which is the light source for cell phones, tablets, computers and TVs, can disrupt sleep. Salt lamps, on the other hand, offer a warm orange glow, similar to the hues found in a campfire or by candlelight. This almost-hypnotic, calming affect makes them great light sources for the evening. I like to light my lamps before bedtime to promote sleep.
