Himalayan salt lamps chemically and physically transform a room – not just in colour and glow, but in health benefits and effects. They easily create a soothing, relaxing atmosphere to heal and soothe your body and mind.
Salt lamps – also known as “Vitamins of the Air” – are blocks of pure crystal that come from ancient oceans far beneath the Earth’s surface. Carved out and drilled to take a small bulb – they produce a negative-ion atmosphere and the health benefits that come with it. The bulb inside the lamp heats the salt crystals allowing them to emit negative ions.
Rock salt lamps are made from salt crystals that are approximately 250 million years old from the Himalayan mountain regions. Mined crystals come in a variety shades including white, pink in all its shades, orange and red. You can choose natural or sculpted lamps in a variety of shapes. Our salt lamps are imported directly from the foothills of the Himalayas, and are made from the highest quality Salt. The bases are made from Neem wood known for its durable and termite free properties.
SALT LAMPS – WHAT DO THEY DO?
Purify and Ionize the room air
Balance and neutralize electromagnetic waves from TVs, computers, phones, etc.
The healing properties of salt have been recognised since the beginning of recorded history. Every civilization has valued salt and for thousands of years people suffering from chronic congestive problems have gone to clinics located in salt mines for treatment.
We are constantly surrounded by positive and negative ions – charged molecules that float through the air without us noticing. Positive ions have been dubbed ‘electronic smog’ which WHO calls “one of the most common and fastest growing environmental influences”. Studies show that our brains are bombarded by 20 times more frequencies than should be. These frequencies attribute to mental health issues, insomnia, nerve disorders, allergies, and potentially more.
Positive ions aren’t a positive thing. They are produced by our 21st century-style of living, tv’s, computers and micro-waves and they need to be neutralized. A salt lamp is a simple way to give any room a neutralized (or even negative) ion effect. The air smells fresher and is easier to breathe.
The heat of the lamp creates negative ions and these negative ions go on a mission, attaching to excessive positive ions like bacteria, mould, and allergens and neutralize the electronic smog in your home. Negative ions stimulate oxygen flow to the brain, giving us increased mental alertness and energy.
By clearing the air of toxins, the lamps can also help specifically with respiratory allergies, asthma and hay fever. Negative ions attract natural pollutants like dust, mould, and other allergens and irritants, they attach to the pollutants and give them a negative charge, neutralizing them so they lose their damaging properties.
Due to the hygroscopic properties of salt (absorbing moisture from the air), Himalayan salt lamps are best not used in damp rooms, outdoors, in humid conditions, near evaporative cooling, or be allowed to get wet.
