Due to the hygroscopic (water-absorbing) and photoelectric nature of a heated Himalayan salt lamp, it emits vapor and negative ions, respectively. The negative ions were proven to attract pollutants, airborne particles, and positive ions generated by electromagnetic fields (EMF) emanating from electric devices to the salt lamp, purifying the air and creating a feel-good atmosphere. Exposure to such field were found to go as far as complicate already-existing diseases.
Pink Himalayan salt rock lamps provide a soothing, therapeutic glow to any room in which they’re placed. They could be used as an integral part of an altar or simply tasteful design elements to improve any mystical and meditative space in your home. Whether you’re looking to improve the atmosphere in your home office or create a space that inspires the life you want to live, a Himalayan salt lamp could be the perfect solution.

After having this salt lamp for two months, the light bulb make a loud noise and sparked. I tried putting in a new bulb and it still wouldn't work. This ended up happening to three of the five salt lamps we purchased (I purchased five of these at once from this seller). I tried getting in contact with the seller and they never responded so now I'm stuck with 3 salt lamps that can't be used.
The amount of negative ions a salt lamp can release depends on its size and how warm the candle or lightbulb can make it. The larger the crystal, obviously, the more expensive the lamp, but the larger area it can provide with negative ions. Salt lamps that produce 'night-light' amounts of light can provide ions to an area equal to the average office cubicle.
"There has been some talk in the holistic community about the fact that electromagnetic radiation from cellphones, from microwaves, from computers, creates positive ionization of our body," Kogan explained to TODAY. "The talk has been that the negative ions supposedly produced by the lamps help to neutralize the positive charge. But to be honest with you... I haven't seen any large studies that would confirm this."

Beatriz Puyol, based in Dahab, South Sinai, is a metaphysics and healing crystals enthusiast and has vast experience with Himalayan salt lamps and knowledge of rock salt light benefits. “I was in awe of these salt lamps the first time I used them. It made a world of difference in relation to air quality, and it does not consume much electrical power to get these negative ions released in the air.”

To accent the natural beauty of the salt crystals, they are housed them in a decorative metal vase, perfect for the design-conscious home. Illuminate your room with a warm, pleasant and relaxing amber glow. It's a perfect choice in the center of a coffee table, desk. Great for meditation, yoga spaces, and as a nightlight. Also, you can try it as a bedside lamp.
Salt lamps have been known for their many uses including alleviating stress, discarding bacteria and other pollutants, and providing a low source of lighting for a relaxing atmosphere. This is mostly due to its ability to produce negative ions when heated. Negative ions are invisible particles with a negative electric charge in the form of molecules or oxygen atoms. They can be found in nature through changes in the weather, such as thunderstorms or sunrays, which generate radioactive rays that break down air molecules into mostly negative ions.

However, there is no evidence that these lamps produce meaningful amounts of negatively charged particles, or ions, or that they reduce pollutants in the air. To assess the health claims, scientists need to answer three basic questions: Does Himalayan salt contain any special ingredients that could somehow positively affect health? Do negative ions benefit health? And if they do benefit health, do these lamps produce them in any quantity? Malin said. On all three counts, there is little-to-no evidence supporting the claims, he said.
k) Monthly period (Menstruation) complaints can also be alleviated by using a salt sachet warming it for half an hour to get rid of the cramps, placing it on top of the abdomen with hot water bottle. Using the Sole’ in the batch improves the body’s electric current, therefore making the body’s ability to heal itself. The Himalayan salt crystal solution can also be used for rheumatism, wounds, insect bites, after care from operation and aids in relief of skin irritations.
Himalayan salt lamps can be used as an aid in color therapy (chromotherapy), an alternative method of diagnosing and treating a large number of illnesses. They produce a soft light in hues of ambient orange, yellow and red that helps with stress, attention deficit disorder, and general relaxation, among others. The serene light is thought to balance physical, spiritual and emotional energies. 
Cilia are the finite hairs that line the windpipe and act like microscopic breathing filters. According to studies, positive ions decrease cilial activity while, conversely, negative ions have a more increasing and positive effect. Himalayan salt lamps are therefore believed to improve breathing by releasing negative ions that filter foreign particles and keep the lungs cleaner in general. 
An atom contains a balanced number of electrical charges, positive and negative. Salt results from the combination of two atoms, in the case of edible salt, sodium and chlorine. Chlorine takes one electron from sodium and acquires a net negative charge. The sodium is left with a net positive charge. If your salt is releasing negative ions, they must be chlorine with an extra negative charge. What happens to the positively charged sodium left behind. As more and more chlorine ions are released, what prevents the salt left behind from acquiring an overwhelming positive charge?
This product is a customized 3-in-1 version that could be used as an essential oil diffuser, humidifier and salt lamp. When it used as aroma diffuser and humidifier. It is designed to humidify the air to make you feel relaxed in the dry environment, like an air-conditioned room in the winter. It could also be used as crystal salt lamps that add a beautiful warm glow to any environment and emit a stream of negative ions which can purify the air against allergens and pollutants. Negative ions are...

Sellers of these spa-like room accessories claim the lamps can "clear the air of electro-smog," oxygenate the brain, reduce symptoms of such mood disorders as seasonal affective disorder and even improve the immune system. Proponents claim these lamps work in two ways: They attract allergens and pollutants from the air to their surface, and they generate negative ions.
Admittedly, the negative ion claim didn’t come out of nowhere. There was a 1998 study published in the journal of the American Psychological Association, and a few follow-up studies as well, that suggested negative ions could help reduce the effects of seasonal affective disorder and chronic depression. But the reality is there aren’t any studies suggesting the lamps provide anywhere near the levels of negative ions to have an effect, and when Negative Ions Information Center tested salt lamps for negative ion output, they found so few it was hard to measure.

Due to the hygroscopic (water-absorbing) and photoelectric nature of a heated Himalayan salt lamp, it emits vapor and negative ions, respectively. The negative ions were proven to attract pollutants, airborne particles, and positive ions generated by electromagnetic fields (EMF) emanating from electric devices to the salt lamp, purifying the air and creating a feel-good atmosphere. Exposure to such field were found to go as far as complicate already-existing diseases.
