Crystals and gemstones have been used for centuries for various purposes and in various forms, with one major purpose being their perceived ability to heal. That’s right, there are crystals that are considered to have magical healing powers. So what better way to harness their powers than to have them keeping the balance right in your own home.
Otherwise known as Pink Halite, Himalayan Salt has become a rather fashionable crystal in recent years, appearing in stylish homes all over the world. As well as being of benefit to your health when it’s consumed, Himalayan Salt is also thought to have healing properties when it’s simply sitting in your home.
By now, you will probably have seen Himalayan Salt crafted into lamps, which are natural home decorations that not only give off a very relaxing glow when lit, but may also help to purify the air in your home. The rock salt is said to absorb the moisture in the air, and all the allergens in the air at the same time. When the moisture eventually evaporates back out, the allergens and dust particles are said to remain trapped in the salt.
