I have never really paid much attention to reality stars, so if anyone had mentioned Kim Kardashian to me a year ago, I wouldn’t have known who on earth she was! Until that is last Christmas…
Our shop phone was like a hot line, people calling and asking if we stocked Himalayan Salt Lamps, at least 20 calls a day, we were inundated. We have always sold them for the last 20 years, but steadily, so this was a bit of a revelation since new age shops are rarely caught up with trends and fads.
I continually asked these callers why the sudden interest and nobody could tell me, just that they had heard about the benefits and it was all over face book and social media.
Finally one of my customers had watched an episode of The Kardashians whereby Kim had evidently filled every room in her house with Salt Lamps to provide them with the good energy and healing benefits that they can bring about.
While I have little or no interest in tv and celebrity; I have to thank Kim Kardashian for alerting the general public to the wonderful qualities of these ancient Salt Lamps.
And of course it was very nice to make some sales at this level, but I do especially love it when something that is so helpful to our lives makes its way into the mainstream, bringing it into mass awareness like this.
So let me explain more about these Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps. They are said to create anions (negatively charged ions) in the air. Since pollution and the use of electrical equipment create potentially harmful positively charged ions (cations) in the air and cause air quality to deteriorate, using a salt lamp helps to counter the cations. This natural ionisation helps avoid the physical and mental harm created by the electrical smog around us.
Salt Lamps can be used either with electric bulbs or candles depending on the model, both emitting a soft, golden light that lends visual appeal to a room. Not only do they look good, they also function as natural air cleansers. Heat from the bulb or candle make the crystal Salt emit negatively charged ions, which enter the air and neutralise the positively charged ions created by pollution and electrical appliances, wifi, tv’s and phones etc. The neutralised ions become heavy and fall to the ground.
These Lamps are made of natural crystal Salt from underground mines in the Himalayas. The crystal Salt is millions of years old and has a high mineral content as well as unique properties. The cleansing properties of these Lamps are said to help combat illnesses like allergies and asthma. Other sources of anions are waterfalls and the sea; these produce up to 10,000 anions per cubic metre compared to just 100 anions per cubic metre being produced in a city at rush hour time. So is it any wonder then why we all feel exhilarated and refreshed when we are near the ocean or by rushing water.
In this day and age full of electrical smog and pollution, isn’t it wonderful that nature has provided us with such treasures from the earth to help us overcome what is becoming a world full of overload to the body, mind and senses.
My house, just like Kim Kardashians is full of these magical crystal lamps and the continued feedback from my customers only mimics the benefits that I have explained here.
With love and crystal lamp light…
