Halotherapy, the practice of salt therapy, has been used by ancient civilizations for centuries. To much surprise, our four-legged friends can benefit from Himalayan salt lamps! Please continue reading to learn more about these awesome benefits:
- Catches Airborne Allergens – Dry salt pieces attract moisture from the air. Molecules from water gather allergens and particles, which can contain bacteria, mold spores, and viruses that are floating around in the air. The salt lamp does a great job of pulling these harmful materials out of the room which improves the overall quality of the air. As you can imagine, a Himalayan salt lamp would be great to ease pet dander as well!
- Negative Ions – Himalayan salt lamps benefit your pet’s health by releasing negative ions. These negative ions “catch” allergens and debris while neutralizing toxins. Negative ions also increase the blood and brain oxygen and can help with the following pet health conditions:
- Older pets
- Calming Effect – Himalayan salt lamps have a warm pink tone which can be relaxing to you and your pet. Some studies have even shown that salt lamps can reduce depression and seasonal affective disorder. As you know, when you are happy, your pet is too! It’s a win-win.
