Would You Like Some Salt with Your Lamp?

With the construction of the new studio I went in search of an unusual lamp to add some character to the room. Little did I know I would embark on journey that would lead me to discover the wonders of Himalayan Salt Lamps.

Firstly, let me say WOW! The benefits we have experienced with these lamps in our homes and the studio have been significantly noticeable and exciting. Let me give you a little background...

What is a Himalayan Salt Lamp?

Himalayan crystal rock salt was formed many millions of years ago when the seas dried up. Gradual evaporation, and the conditions prevailing in the interior of the earth, resulted in the formation of a crystalline structure that gives rock salt its typical appearance. Crystal rock salt is the most beneficial, pure salt available on this planet. It consists of the most perfect geometric structure possible in rock crystals and is the result of millions of years of compression under the Earth’s surface. It has a precise mesh with our body’s inner workings because Himalayan crystal salt contains an almost identical set of elements to those found inside the human body: that is, 84 of the possible 92 trace minerals, in the same proportion that naturally exist in our blood.

Research and experience have proven the healthy and therapeutic benefits of this rock salt, especially if illuminated as heat helps it discharge negative ions into the atmosphere that balance the high proportion of positive ions which are released by the use of electronic items such as television sets, radios, artificial air conditioners, dryers and vacuum cleaners. Smoking also pollutes our air with positive charge ions. The negative ions emitting from rock salt lamps freshen the atmosphere and improve air quality by removing harmful positively charged particles from the air, thus also serving as natural air purifiers.

Some of the specific benefits include:

• Improved sleep

• Relief from migraines

• Reduction of the severity of asthma attacks

• Increased work productivity and concentration

• Relief from sinus problems, hay fever and allergies

• Improved digestion

• Enhanced immune system and lung capacity

• Reduction of susceptibility to colds and flu

How did it benefit Aaron and Ben?

Ben and I have experienced considerable improvements in concentration, energy and enthusiasm while putting a show together. Thanks to the wonders of summer in Australia both Ben and I suffer from the occasional bout of hay fever. Since running a Himalayan Salt Lamp in the studio we have both experienced a considerable reduction in hay-fever (except for the MUP109! ~ Ben).

I myself feel especially invigorated after spending a couple of hours near the lamp and Ben had told me he loves having the lamp in his house to help him sleep.

I am really surprised and excited by the benefits I have experienced running these lamps! Pretty impressive considering I purchased the first one solely for the look.

Where can I get one?

Despite living in one of the largest cities in Australia, a search of my local shops revealed nothing. As such I did a Google search and found Natural Gifts for You. The proprietor of this store is Lil Petrovski and she has been as amazing as her lamps! She has an incredible knowledge of the lamps and buying from her has simply been a pleasure. Lil's lamps come in all shapes and sizes including natural rock formations, spheres, pyramids and fire bowls.

Each of the lamps I ordered arrived promptly and very well packed. Lil also supplies other great products in addition to the Himalayan Salt Lamps. I strongly recommend checking out her store at www.naturalgiftsforyou.com

Unfortunately, Lil currently only supplies her products to Australia, however I strongly recommend our listeners in other locations google a local supplier, get one and let us know how you benefit from these great lamps.

Stay tuned to for an upcoming chance to win one of these great lamps.
