If you’re scanning some of the dreamiest rooms on Instagram right now, you might notice one common denominator: a Himalayan pink salt lamp glowing away, radiating good vibes

Fans like them for more than ambiance, though. “[They] release negative ions, which help clean the air of pollutants—even electronic pollution that’s generated from [items like] phone chargers, laptops, alarm clocks, [and] televisions,” says Laura Benko, author of The Holistic Home: Feng Shui for Mind, Body, Spirit, Space“This unique attribute makes for a healthier environment where you inexplicably just feel better.”

Plus, a salt lamp easily doubles as a decorative object that can add a unique touch to a lot of places in your home. “Anywhere you have a plug, you can put [one],” says interior designer Alex Fulton, who uses them in her own home in New Zealand.

Here are 5 cool spots to put a Himalayan pink salt lamp at home.
