A salt lamp is a chunk of mined salt that has been hollowed out to allow room for a light bulb or tiny candle. Salt crystal for salt lamps is mined in the Himalayas in Pakistan. Salt lamps are natural ion generators, emitting negative ions into the atmosphere. Why is this a good thing? Negative ions are good for you! Negative ions are created in nature by the effects of water, air, and sunlight. The positive effects of negative ions can be experienced on a visit to a salt mine, by the sea, or walking straight after a storm.
These days our homes and workplaces are filled with electrical appliances and electronics such as (televisions, computers, lights, microwaves, heaters, mobile devices, etc.). The use of such devices has been blamed for lowering our energy levels, making us feel tired, cranky, and depressed because of their emissions of positive ions. Keeping a salt lamp in areas where positive ions are polluting your air space will help neutralize the air you breathe and may help treat illness and improve health. Balancing positive and negative ions also helps reduce airborne infections.
The human body craves both light and colour as seen in colour therapy. These Salt lamps give off a lovely soft orange glow and make a great backlight in a room.
