HIMALAYAN PINK SALT
Himalayan salt is rock salt or halite originates from the Punjab region of Pakistan. It was named "Himalayan Pink Salt" after the iron-rich pink clay ores found in the Himalayas. It is mined at the Khewra Salt Mine in Khewra which is situated in the foothills of the Salt Range in the Jhelum District in Punjab of the Pakistan-Indo Gangetic Plain.
Due to its ancient history is said to have been discovered around 326 BC when the troops led by Alexander the Great stopped to rest there and noticed their horses licking the salty rocks. Salt has been mined from there since that time, but the first records of mining are from the Janjua people in the 1200s.
Himalayan Salt is hygroscopic, so our lamps attract water molecules from the air; this means the lamp traps dirt, pollen, and smoke particles which are carried in water vapors. Once these airborne contaminants have been locked in, clean water is re-released and thus it has a purifying effect on the air. Scientists are aware that salt does absorb water from the air but it quickly reaches an equilibrium state (it doesn’t take up any more water because it is saturated), but it can be revitalized by drying, which lit and warmed up lamp does. The heat from the bulb inside our lamps warms up the Himalayan Rock which releases negative ions providing health-boosting effects of this unique mineral rock.
