10 Hudson Valley Parent n July 2017 Glowing with benefits You probably never thought a glowing chunk of salt could benefit your health, but that's because you've never used a Hi- malayan Rock Salt Lamp. Kristin Villielm, manager of Mother Earth's Storehouse in Poughkeepsie, says, "They are like natu- ral filters. Salt is a moisture absorber and the lamps can clean things like allergens and cigarette smoke out of the air." They also emit a warm orange glow. This soothing light can aid in relaxation and decrease stress. Villielm says, "I leave mine on all day. I put one near my computer to absorb those ions and one in my son's room because he really likes the light at night to help him sleep." Erica, long time employee at Sunflower Natural Foods Market in Woodstock, says, "Not all lamps are created equal. You have to find the right size lamp for the room. Bigger rooms would need bigger lamps." She also suggests getting a lamp that heats using a lightbulb instead of a candle saying, "I wouldn't leave the ones that use candles unattended, but I leave the ones with lightbulbs on all day." Villielm also suggests checking out the salt cave, Salt and Soul. "Peo- ple can sit there and be surrounded by crystals and salt," she says. "It's like therapy." Salt and Soul, 2917 Rte. 9W, Saugerties. 845-247-7364. COMING SOON: • Health & Wellness • Personal Development • Home & Hearth More Me Time Just For Women ME TIME !
