Himalayan Salt Lamp – Deeper Sleeper Challenge #6

Try to imagine living your everyday life without lights or any other electrical device. Tricky? We’ve become so reliant on electricity but what about the negative things that it’s doing to our body? Not many people know but some electrical items are also the source of harmful positive ions. This means that when we switch on certain electrical devices, these ions are released, deteriorating the condition of the air in the room and negatively affecting our physical and emotional wellbeing.

Research has shown that some of the most harmful sources of positive ions in our houses are:

– Computer Monitors
– TV’s
– Radios
– Microwaves
– Electric Heaters
– Ovens
– Dryers
– Vacuum cleaners

One rumoured solution to this is a Himalayan Rock Salt lamp. This was the Sealy Deeper Sleeper Challenge #6.

The Rock Salt naturally releases negative ions into the air. The bulb heats up the salt which enhances the ‘ionisation effect’. This can be see when we go to the beach or salt caves and instantly begin to breath deeper and feel more refreshed. In theory, this lamp should be perfectly for getting a better nights sleep.

The lamp was great. It has nice orange glow and was the perfect brightness for reading before you nod off at night (or day). The rock also creates a great Indie aesthetic, regardless of whether the lamp is switched on or off.

As for sleeping, I didn’t notice a change in my pattern. It may be the stress of November Deadlines looming but I have been falling asleep really quickly and then awakening still feeling just as tired. Or maybe there were just too many positive ions in my room that it’s taken a while for my air to re-purify.

Either way, I would suggest getting one of these lamps as they are so beautiful! They may not be helping with my sleeping situation but it does put a smile on my face when I see it beside my bed. It also relaxes my eyes switching off my lights and relaxing at night which in the long run will probably help my sleeping pattern.
