Himalayan Salt Benefits

Introduction

Crystal Salt lamps also to create anions (negatively charged ions) in the air. Since pollution and the use of electrical equipment create potentially harmful positively charged ions (cations) in the area and caused air-quality to deteriorate, using the salt lamp helps counter the captions. This is natural ionization helps avoid the physical and mental harm created by the 'electric smog' around us.

Usage

Salt lamps can be used either with electric bulbs or candles depending on the model, both emitting a soft, golden light that lends visual appeal to a room. Not only do they look good, they also function as natural air clearances. Heat from the bowl or candle makes the crystal salt emit negatively charged ions, which enter the air and neutralizes the positively charged ions created by pollution and electrical appliances. The neutralized ions become heavy and fall to the ground.

Scientific info

These lamps are made of natural Crystal Salt from underground mines in the Himalayas. The Crystal Salt is millions of years old and has a high mineral content as well as special properties. The cleansing properties of these lamps are said to help combat illnesses like allergies and asthma. Other sources of anions our waterfalls and the sea; these produce up to 10,000 anions per cubic metre compared with just 100 anions per cubic metre being produced in the city at the rush-hour time.
