These Himalayan Rock Salt Candle Holders are beautiful and beneficial! They come complete with a pure beeswax tea candle. Beeswax is know to cleanse the air, and it smells great, giving off a warm honey aroma. Beeswax is a slow burning wax, so it will burn a lot longer than candles made of other materials.
Why Himalayan rock salt?
Cleanse the Air of Dust and Toxins
It's no secret that the air quality in most homes is rather poor - the Environmental Protection Agency reports air inside buildings is often "more seriously polluted" than that outdoors. Given that we spend 90 percent of our time indoors, this can lead to health problems.
Similar to Himalayan Salt Lamps, candle holders are believed to help remove toxins from the air. The theory is that air-borne pollutants and dust particles are drawn to the salt, causing them to settle on the candle holder's surface and leaving the air cleaner.
While Himalayan Salt Candle Holders alone may not be enough to rid your house of all pollutants, they can be used in conjunction with air purifiers and house plants to help improve air quality. In turn, this can reduce your allergies and make your home feel fresh and clean.
Boost the Ambiance and Improve Your Mood
Perhaps one of the most common reasons people purchase Himalayan Salt Candle Holders is for their calm, soothing appearance. Candles themselves are often used to encourage relaxation. There's a reason you always see them in spas, and their effects are enhanced by the warm, relaxing light of a Himalayan Salt Candle Holder.
Further, there is evidence that salt lamps can help reduce anxiety and stress thanks to their soothing appearance and negative ions. Some people even use Himalayan Salt Candle Holders to mitigate the effects of seasonal affective disorder, as they mimic the warm glow of the sun.
