Himalaya Salt Dreams
Himalayan Crystal Salt originated from the Himalayan mountains about 500 Million years ago and the beautiful salt lamps are known for their healing benefits. Namely, they utilize  ionization to help neutralize common air pollutants like dust, animal fur, smog and electronic devices. Yes, the electronic devices that you depend on each day like your computer, television and microwave influence the air quality in a room because they give off charged ions.  Use a Himalaya Salt Dreams lamp to neutralize harmful ions and create a calming atmosphere for meditating, sleeping or visualizing a happy and prosperous 2013!

Perfect for starting a new goals journal for 2013!  Paperblanks is also committed to supporting initiatives and policies that help reduce operational impact on the planet and improve environmental conditions around the globe. To this end, they strive to be a carbon neutral company and journals feature 100% recycled binder boards and paper from sustainable pulp.
