HOW DO HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS CLEANSE AIR?
HOW DO HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS CLEANSE AIR? It is undeniable that the industry involving the Himalayan Salt Lamps has paved the way for a higher sense of e;commerce with a blasting boom! Himalayan Salt Lamps are not limited to being used as a lighting alternative only, but it is more importantly used to have a relaxing ambiance inside your beloved homes. There has been rumors circulated that talks about how Himalayan Salt Lamps potentially surpass what ordinary lamps can do. According to these buzzes, unlike ordinary lamps, strong Himalayan Salt Lamps aid in cleansing air. Through time, these unsupported claims raised more questions than answers. However, we may find answers from the natural ability of the mineral salt itself. Salt is a natural hygroscopic. This means it has a normal ability to absorb moisture from the air, making Himalayan Salt Lamps natural dehumidifiers. In a moist and humid environment, salt lamps will drip salt particles which consequently kill bacteria and mold spores that are attached to the water molecules in the air through the salt’s natural antibacterial properties. In order for this process to be effective in killing bacteria trapped in the air, the salt lamps should be warm to touch with the proper bulb so that the air will rise through convection making the entire process of cleansing continue. The by-product of this process also takes a big role in strong Himalayan Salt Lamps ability to cleanse the air. The emission of negative ions caused from heating the salt and its natural reaction to the humidity is the primary by-product of the said process. The negative ions bind with the excess positive ions in the air which usually includes common allergens, dust, and odor particles. As a result, the combined ions become heavier than air making it drop harmlessly to the ground. The allergens and dust particles accumulate in the ground, which prevents it from being airborne and hence making it not available for us to breathe or absorb. This is the reason why people with Himalayan Salt Lamps observe very little dust around the area where their Himalayan Salt Lamps were placed.
