If you have ever experienced the air at a waterfall, on a mountain top, at the seashore, or after a thunderstorm then you have experienced the results of Negative Ions and you know how the air smells fresher and how much easier it is for you to breathe.
Negative Ions are displaced electrons in the air, formed when an energy source acts on a molecule of oxygen, carbon dioxide, water or nitrogen.
They are short-lived and highly reactive particles that attach and neutralize microscopic particles floating in the air, like mold, pollen, dust allergens, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke and chemicals.
Salt Crystals Lamps are also natural Negative Ion generators. Salt is naturally Hygroscopic, which means, it naturally attracts moisture. The interaction of humid air with the surface of a salt crystal releases Negative Ions. Many medical studies in Europe have shown such health benefits and provide relief from hay fever, asthma and allergy relief, improvement with sinus related illnesses, migraines and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu. Negative ions can enhance the immune system, increase mental alertness and concentration, purify indoor air and control odors, plus many additional reported health benefits.
The healing properties of salt have been recognized since the beginning of recorded history. Every civilization has valued salt, using it as trade currency, a preservative for food and a valuable health tonic. In many cultures, people seek the refuge of salt crystal mines for their health and rejuvenation. It has been reported that deep within a salt mine, the symptoms of asthma, allergies and other respiratory illnesses are relieved, even joint pain is reduced when a person is surrounded by salt crystal rocks.
For thousands of years, people suffering from chronic congestive problems have gone to clinics located in salt mines for treatment. This treatment is known as Speleotherapy. The very dry, negative ion environment of a salt mine helps to clear out the patient's bronchial tubes and sinuses, killing bacteria and other microbes.
Researchers have discovered that if there is little or no moisture in the air, small salt crystals are largely ineffective at producing Negative Ions. However, areas such as the outdoors, bathrooms and spas have too much humidity and the salt crystals dissolve rapidly when exposed to high humidity levels above 60 percent. Salt Crystal Lamps will last indefinitely as long as they are not exposed to excessive moisture.
Researchers also discovered that when a salt crystal is heated slightly, it will generate Negative Ions. In order to facilitate this, a small light bulb, usually 7 to 40 watts, is placed inside a salt crystal creating our unique Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps™. Therefore, it is important to remember that any Salt Crystal Lamp, under normal conditions, will only generate Negative Ions when it is warmed by the internal light bulb. We recommend that you leave the light on 24 hours a day for maximum benefits.
The more Negative Ions that are generated, the better the ambient air will become. The size of the salt crystal lamp and the conditions of the surrounding area, will ultimately determine the radiant effect of a Negative Ion discharge.
