Are there any scientific studies that back the health benefits of Himalayan salt lamps?

Yes, studies have shown that Himalayan salt lamps do indeed increase negative ions in the environment that they are placed in. Actually, the increase is quite significant at almost 300%, which is enough to correct the imbalance caused due to excessive positive ions in the indoor space.

Pierce J. Howard, who is the Director of Research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences of North Carolina, states that an increase in negative ions has a direct bearing on the supply of oxygen to the brain. This in turn leads to enhanced alertness, increase in mental prowess and cognitive functions as well as a decrease in lethargy and drowsiness.

As a double whammy, these negatively charged particles are also potent germ killers and they bind with other pollutants that irritate mucus membranes. So, using a Himalayan salt lamp is bound to lower instances of allergic cold, throat irritation, sneezing and cough.

And, there is more! About 33% of us are ultra sensitive to the presence of negative ions, so these tiny particles can actually make some of us feel like we are on top of the world or like we are on a flight through clouds. If a walk on the beach manages to perk you up instantly, well you can expect your salt lamp to have a similar impact on your mood.
