History Of Himalayan Salt:
Himalayan Rock Salt crystals were formed over 200 million years ago at the foothills of the Himalayas.Himalayan Salt Lamp is made of the salt crystal that is constructed under the sea million years ago. Commonly, salt is made at sea, yet this Himalayan salt is unique because it is naturally produced on Himalayan mountain, the Khewra Salt Mine, Jhelum District, east of PAKISTAN.
The concentration of salt near Khewra, Punjab, 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 was probably mined there from that time, but the first records of mining are from the Janjua people in the 1200s.
The Himalayan Salt lamps expend all this energy and goodness found in the crystals through a light when switched on inside it.These Salt lamps are mined from deep within the mountains and hand crafted and left to dry in the sun.These Salt lamps comes in a varied natural hues and shapes. These lamps are hollowed out in the middle to help us put a light bulb or candle inside.When the Himalayan Salt Lamps are lit, it gives out negative ions that purify the air of the room in which it is kept. These lamps also absorb excess humidity. They also bind the harmful positive ions send into the air from various sources like the television, computer etc and helps purify the air.
Himalayan salt contains all the elements found in our bodies that occur naturally for example, iron. Astoundingly, it constitutes 84 trace minerals and elements. No other product in the world can boast this fact and that’s why it was historically known as “King salt”, “salt of life”, or “white gold”, as it was only reserved for royalty. Alchemists called it “the fifth element”, besides air, water, earth, and fire – because its qualities were comparable only to ether, the actual fifth element.
