An Illuminating Option

A perfect addition to any boho room in need of a pink hue, Himalayan salt lamps help to purify the air in a room.  

The salt crystals combined with the light source produce negative ions that neutralize the positive ions in the air carried by mildew, allergens, and bacteria. The positive ions are produced by some electronic equipment, which can lead to insomnia and heightened stress. As such, salt lamps can have a positive effect on meditation, encouraging relaxation and reducing stress. 

And now you know. Will you be adding Himalayan salt to your routine?
