When heated, Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions, and when these ions hit the air, they bond with airborne pollutants making them heavier so they fall to the ground rather than being inhaled – similar to an ionic air cleaner. This makes them ideal for people who suffer from allergies.
Both indoor air and air around electronic equipment is known to be very low in negative ions, so in addition to having these larger lamps in our home, we can now take them to work with us thanks to the USB plug in computer Himalayan Salt Lamp.
This one from Solay Wellness, available for $24.95, is hand-chiseled and mounted on a wooden base. It features an LED light so there is no need to change the bulb, and can be plugged into a computer’s USB port for power.
