Clearing The Negative Ions With Salt

Posted by terrepruitt on December 21, 2016

In August I went to the beach when I came back and wrote a post about negative ions and how the beach is one place you can get them.  You can also get them in the mountains, from waterfalls, and even from the shower.  Another place you can get them is a Himalayan Salt Lamp.  I have wanted one for a long time but whenever I have seen them they are really expensive.  Well, lucky me, I got one for Christmas.

Dance Exercise, Nia, Nia in the City of San Jose, Nia classes in the South Bay, Nia Teacher, Nia Class, San Jose Nia, Nia San Jose, Nia workout, Nia, Gentle Yoga, Group Ex classes, YMCA, Zumba, Nia Technique, SJ City Fit, SJCityFitHow I got it early might be explained here or my friends and I have been having a Christmas gathering since we were eighteen.  For thirty years we have met and celebrated Christmas.  Sometimes it is before Christmas, sometimes it is after.  We just have always made sure that we did it.  It used to be four of us, but life’s circumstances took one of our friends away to another state.  For the past five years or so it has just been three of us.  But we still meet.

We gather, eat, drink, and exchange gifts.  The point of the gather is NOT the gifts, but we always manage to do pretty good with that.  The point is to visit and be together, but still we have always managed to exchange something.

This year we were able to fit it into our schedules before Christmas.  And a salt lamp was one of the gifts.  My house is full of Christmas decorations so I was going to wait to put the lamp out, but I ended up not waiting.  When I plugged it in and went to turn it on I was so excited to see it has a dimmer switch – super cool.

In order to write this post I did a search about the lamps and I came across an interesting site that has a lot of information.  It gives 10 reasons why you want one (Salt Lamps Cleanse & Deodorize the Air, Reduce Allergy & Asthma Symptoms, Eases Coughing, Increase Energy Levels and more).  It also gives advice on what size you might want for the room you are putting it in.  I think I might need a bigger one to be effective in the room I have it in now.  Or perhaps I can get two for the space.  It says that an average size room (which is what?) would benefit from a 6.9 lb lamp, but a 15 lb lamp would be better for larger areas like a living room.

Our house was designed with a great room so the area is very large plus there are cathedral ceilings.  The 15 lb one would probably work better in the living room.  It could be that two large ones would work best in that space.  It is very large.  I will take my gift one for my office.  Once Christmas is down I will be moving the lamp closer to where we sit and that might help in the mean time.  Until I find one (or two) I want to buy for the space.

My hubby has a tea light holder and I use that every once in a while. I am very excited about the lamp.  I wonder if we will notice a difference?

Do you have any Himalayan salt around?  Lamps?  Candle holders?
