Key Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps

Himalayan salt lamps are a big part of my bedtime routine. For me, the biggest benefit is the light they emit, a warm, soft, amber glow that immediately relaxes and soothes me purely by looking at them. I always use one when meditating, and they are also a great addition to an alter if you have one. Or they can just provide a mindful space in your home or bedroom, by giving it a soothing therapeutic feel.

Salt lamps may improve your overall well-being.

Himalayan salt lamps are made from pure, food grade, Himalayan salt crystals. True Himalayan Salt comes from the western side of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. Once mined, this salt is hand carved into lamps or powdered to use as salt in food. The only salt I use in food or cooking, is Himalayan Pink salt. This is because when taken internally, it balances your body’s natural Ph and helps keeps your body in an alkaline state.

Having salt lamps in the home will help give it a purer atmosphere.

But I bought them as they have many other benefits;

  • They emit negative ions, the best way to increase your negative ions is to get outside and go for a walk somewhere green, but as this is not always an option, a salt lamp can help.
  • Neutralise the effects of electronics, like phones, tablets and wifi.
  • Boost mood and energy levels and may help with SAD disorder.
  • Soothing for Allergies; Salt lamps have the ability to remove pollen, dust and smoke from the room.
  • Reduce stress, and help re-energize and revitalize the body.
  • Can aid sleep.They give off a warm orange glow, similar to the ones found in a campfire or candlelight. For this reason, they make a great night light without negatively affecting sleep. 
Salt has become a common mineral to naturally heal and strengthen the body and mind.


Sometimes it’s hard to find an authentic Himalayan salt lamp, so I recommend Be42.  I know Sandra the owner sources all her items very carefully, and also gives 5% of all takings to MIND, which I think is a really lovely idea.

Next week in my Facebook Group, we are discussing sleep and we will be trying different options to help us get a better night sleep. I would love to see you in there, so come on board if you want to join the challenge to get a restful 8 hours sleep!

About Me

Hi, I’m Natalie Shirlaw, a professional hair stylist on a personal wellness journey.

My aim is to help women live a more natural life that will leave them looking and feeling amazing. Ever since I was 10 I’ve been fascinated with the hairdressing business and officially started working when I was 14. I’ve worked in some of the top UK salons and for some of the best hairdressers in the world, and I now have my own salon in Kent.

 As a hairdresser I’ve always wanted to give my clients the latest and best products and even ended up being a technical consultant for L’Oreal, but one thing was common throughout my career…

I am super passionate about finding natural and organic products that work just as well as the big brand alternatives, and that are ultimately better for you too. For over 10 years I’ve been actively researching, and testing as many products that I can. Everything from skincare, to makeup, to food and even home wear. I’ve been incorporating these products and tactics into my daily life since and I’ve never felt better. Outside of my regular work I’ve studied martial arts and other Eastern practices like Reiki, meditation, Feng Shui, EFT and NLP.

 So as you can see I’m a big advocate for all around healthy and natural living. I’ll be sharing my best tips, tactics and products here, that you can implement easily to live a more natural life, where you can feel and look amazing. I’m super excited to have you with me on this journey and can’t wait to see what we can accomplish together! As I seek and test out natural and organic alternatives to big brand products to find the best on the market, I’ll be sharing my research, results and most importantly my resolve. Please join me on this journey. If I can help just one other woman to feel more fulfilled, happier and healthier my blog will have been worth publishing.
