A Guide to Himalayan Natural Salt Lamps
Himalayan Natural Salt is the result of the oceans being trapped millions of years ago in the Himalayan Mountains and then drying up and crystallizing, giving the rock its characteristic look. The crystals are different colours depending on the mineral concentration in them.
Colours range from light pink to yellow to more intense tones of oranges and red.
When used as a lamp, they have a comfortable atmospheric light. The harmonizing colour shades have a pleasant and relaxing effect on body and soul. By emitting vital ions, salt lamps have shown to improve a room's climate. When the lamps are turned on, their effect is even stronger!
Salt Lamps bind together the excessive positive ions with their negative ions. When they warm up, they attract humidity and the surface of the salt crystal becomes moist. This causes a field of ions to build up. Salt lamps can also neutralize the electro-smog in a room.
A salt lamp is beneficial anywhere you would like the air quality to be improved or preserved, anywhere you want to create a cosy, relaxing atmosphere and anywhere you want to enjoy the beauty of nature. A Himalayan salt lamp at work can help to improve your concentration and referesh you, neutralizing the effects of stress, artificial light and air environment.
Place a salt lamp near your computer to reduce fatigue, counter EMF (electro magnetic pollution) effects from equipment. The lamp will also minimise the effects of radiation.
How Does a Salt Lamp Work?
A salt lamp emits a number of negative ions into the surrounding atmosphere when it is heated by an external source of electricity or candles. The heat produced from the lamp breaks down the Na CL Sodium Chloride in a process called ionization. This process is enhanced by the natural process of NACL and results in producing negative ions, which eliminate the positive ions which are present in our surroundings produced by computers, refrigerators and televisions etc, thus these lamps make the air clean, fresh and healthy to live in! Salt lamps can be very beneficial for anyone with a history of asthma and allergies as it helps to purify the air and take out any dust and allergenic substances.
I hope you have found this guide helpful and that you one day can enjoy the beauty and health giving benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp.
