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.

1. Bedroom

“I have a large Himalayan [salt] lamp in my bedroom. This is a perfect place for [them] because the warm glow makes for a sensual and welcoming environment,” says Benko.

2. Living room

“For our family, it acts as a foil to positive ions produced by technology, such as TVs and cell phones, as well as adding to air quality,” Fulton says.

3. Reading nook

“It creates an ambient corner that we also know is doing some good for our environment,” says Fulton.

4. Bathroom

“It’d be lovely to soak in a deep bubble bath with a lamp close by,” suggests the interior designer.

5. Charging station

“We have a large lamp in the desk area of our open-plan kitchen and living place,” explains Fulton. “It’s where the kids do homework, we pay bills, and also where a lot of devices are charged.”

For other ways to elevate the vibes at home, consider installing some shower plants and adding a few crystals
