Salt crystal lamp is simply known as salt lamp also! It is made from salt crystal rocks formed by nature over hundreds of millions of years ago. When mining the salt crystals, explosives are strictly prohibited to preserve the structures of the crystals. Lamps are carefully crafted by hand to retain the unique, beautiful and natural shape of the rock. The result is a rare crystal with such beautiful colors ranging from off-white to apricot and warm pink. As the light bulb or a tea light warms up the lamp, healthful NEGATIVE IONS lift off from the surface and help to cleanse and improve the quality and freshness of the air you breathe.
Our well being and our efficiency are considerably dependent on the quality of the air we breath. Air consists of many electrically charged particles — positively, negatively charged or neutral particles. The quality of the air we breathe depends on the kind of electrical charge and concentration of the ions.
Salt crystal lamps are known to improve the quality of the air by producing negative ions — the “vitamins of the air”, by emitting a huge number of ions when being illuminated from inside (warm) which is essential for our health and well being which is severely affected these days by our hi-tech life style.
The environment we live in today has far more sources of positive ions than in the past, creating an electrical imbalance in the air. Various human activities and electrical appliances produce positive ions which are the reasons for the deterioration of our physical and emotional well being; e.g. discharge of voltage in high-voltage networks, heating and cooling systems, TVs, radios, transmitters, radar systems, computers, exhausts and cigarette fumes.
