Here is a truly unique gift for your mom that can add some natural style to her home decor as well as clean and purify the air in her home. If you have not heard of Himalayan salt lamps, here is how they work. to reduce pollutants and purify the air inside the home. When warmed, Himalayan pink salt is known to create negative ions, similar to what happens when a thunder storm breaks. Before a storm, you can feel the tension in the air as positive ions build up and increase in intensity. Once the storm hits, negative ions fill the oxygen-rich air and you can feel the calm that lasts well after the rain ends. Negative ions neutralize positive ions in the air, and enhance the quality of the air by reducing the amount of pollen, dust, allergens and pollution in the air. Himalayan pink salt lamps allow you to bring that cleaning, healing energy into your home by countering excessive positive ions.
