Available in several shapes and sizes and emitting beautiful, rich colors, a Himalayan Salt Lamp not only looks warm and welcoming, but it has beneficial health properties.
Did you know that a Himalayan Salt Lamp in your home or office naturally improves your indoor air quality by creating healthy negative ions?
How do Salt Crystal Lamps Work?
Salt lamps emit negative ions.
The bulb inside of the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. Salt itself is hygroscopic and attracts the water from the surroundings. You can often see that the lamp is damp or even wet, especially in more humid environments. Due to the gentle heat of the lamp, the water quickly evaporates and during the evaporation process the beneficial negative ions get created. They go on to bind with excessive positive ions (bacteria, molds and allergens all carry a positive charge) and neutralize the electronic smog in your home.
Moreover, the lamp is a very pure source of light and its multi-colored glow has a soothing effect and relaxes you.
Scientifically speaking, the Himalayan salt lamp achieves the following things:
1. It ionizes the room.
2. It balances artificial frequencies and unnatural electromagnetic wavelengths that originate from electronic appliances.
3. It produces the light waves of the rainbow spectrum which protect your body.
