Meditation Gift - Himalayan Crystal Rock Salt Lamp
How do Himalayan Salt Lamps work?
We are surrounded by positive and negative ions. Positive ions are created by electronic devices and have been dubbed “electronic air pollution,” or “Electro-Smog.” Electronics can cause health problems such as allergies, stress and insomnia.
Salt lamps work by emitting negative ions. The salt crystals, combined with the light source from the bulb, produce negative ions, which act as neutralizers to the positive ions. This results in a cleansing effect on the air in a room and can cancel out those health problems.
In order to breathe in pure and fresh air, it’s important to be surrounded by negative ions as much as possible.
Himalayan salt lamps also purify air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. As the HPS lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.
