What are Himalayan Salt Lamps?
Himalayan salt maps are unique lamps made from Natural Himalayan salt crystals hand mined in the Himalayan Mountains
What are the Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps?
Heating Himalayan salt releases negative ions into the air, creating an effect similar to an ionizer, purifying the surrounding air.
The Amber light that comes from these lamps creates a calm tranquil atmosphere.
Helps with allergies by reducing allergens in the air.
Reduces bacteria and mold from the air.
Helps reduce EMF pollution from electrical appliances.
Helps reduce Seasonal Affective Disorder.
What are Negative Ions?
An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge.
First, let’s talk about what a positive ion is: Positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, cell phones and other electrical household appliances. Positive ions can exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep issues.
Negative ions can neutralize positive ions and help cleanse the air or molds, allergens and dust. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain
It is the combination of salt and a light source which heats up the lamp, that cause the negative ions to be produced. Salt is hygroscopic, which means that it attracts water to its surface. When the water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source it then generates the negative ions the evaporation process.
Airborne bacteria, mold, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by negative ions.
