2. Cleanses the air
Perhaps the most well known benefit associated with pink Himalayan salt lamps is their ability to purify and deodorize the air. It is believed that these lamps have the ability to purify the air through a process known as hygroscopy. In other words, the salt in the lamps attracts water molecules from the air, absorbs the molecules, as well as any allergens that they may be carrying. Once the water evaporates, the allergens, including dust, pet dander and other particles trapped inside the salt, thus purifying the air, minimizing odors and improving its overall health.
