Salt Lamps look fantastic in any setting, but they also have enormous therapeutic benefits. Himalayan Salt Lamps when turned on continuously emit "Negative Ions" into the atmosphere that 'scoop up' pathogens and toxins in the air we breathe. As the lamp is gently warmed by the globe the salt lamp attracts moisture from the surrounding air and a slight chemical reaction takes place (the salt appears glossy), releasing negative ions into the air.
What are "Negative Ions"? Most man made substances create "positive ions" that alter the structure of our cells, as the positive ion acts as an 'acid' and can affect healthy tissue. Negative Ions neutralise these 'bad' elements and render them harmless.
Negative Ions are found abundantly in nature especially around moving water and air. Remember your last visit to the ocean, a forest where the air was crisp and clean or an active waterfall. You were experiencing negative ions! You would leave the environment refreshed and restored.
But, in modern buildings we have a higher proportion of positive ions that can contribute to low health and lethargy. Himalayan salt lamps have been scientifically shown to increase negative ion presence by 300%, therefore correcting the imbalance of excessive positive ions.
