crystal lamps are made from salt crystal rocks, formed over hundreds of
millions of years and mined over 800 feet under the foothills of the
This rare crystal comes in a range of colours from off-white to apricot and warm pink.
As the lamp warms up, healthy negative ions lift off from the surface to
help cleanse and improve the quality and freshness of the air you
Many of us live and work in surroundings dominated by computers,
televisions, copy machines, printers, microwave ovens, air conditioners
and heaters to name a few. These "conveniences" emit excessive amounts
of positive ions into the air. This can result in mental and physical
exhaustion and effect our health. The most dangerous levels of positive
ions occur in polluted cities. Exhaust fumes from vehicles, cigarette
smoke, dust and electromagnetic pollution combine to create a potent
mixture of positive ions and ozone that gradually destroys our lungs and
ruins our health.
Negative ions are odourless, tasteless and invisible molecules that we
inhale in abundance in certain environments such as mountains,
waterfalls and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions
are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of
the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve
stress and boost our energy.
Ionised air also substantially reduces the numbers of airborne bacteria
indoors. It has been found that an astonishingly small quantity of
negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air
so they are less likely to infect people. Salt crystal lamps are a
beautiful alternative to man-made ionisers, without any noise and with
no harmful side effects.
Some Europeans have long been aware of the health benefits of salt for
generations, and people suffering from chronic problems go to clinics
located in salt mines for treatment. It's called speleotherapy. This
very dry, negative ion-rich environment of the salt mines help to clear
out patients bronchial tubes and sinuses, and to kill bacteria and other
There are many proven healing properties found within Himalayan salt,
this salt differs from the “normal” table salt as the table salt we all
consume has been stripped of nutrients that are naturally found within
salt leaving sodium and chloride which as we all know leads to fluid
retention, high blood pressure and heart problems.
Himalayan salt contains such powerful healing properties that an
underground hospital has been carved out of the salt mountains in
Wieliczka, Poland for asthmatics and patients with allergies and lung
disorders. Out of the several thousand patients who have been treated
there, their success rate is over 90%!
Below is a list of some of the benefits Himalayan salt has:
Maintains sexuality and libido
Produces negative ions which reduce electro-smog
Reduce symptoms of asthma, allergies along with various illnesses
Cleanse the air
