Why a salt lamp is so popular right now!
A negative ion air purifying lamp can freshen and ionize the air you breathe naturally, helping you feel and live well.
Breathe in the fresh forest air or a cool salt breeze from the ocean, and you feel the difference. More relaxed, more alive. Ocean breezes are highly charged with healthy negative ions that feed our cells. You can duplicate some of the beach and forest benefits at our homes by bringing natural elements into our indoor environment.
Dry salt therapy, known as speleotherapy or halotherapy, has been soothing inflammation and boosting respiratory health since the 1800’s when a Polish physician discovered that breathing pure, ionized air in salt mines cured respiratory conditions. Since then people have sought out the healing “salt caves” of Eastern Europe for their antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal benefits.
The Health Risks of Unhealthy Air
The American Lung Association recently reported that “more than 142 million Americans” are inhaling an excessive amount of unhealthy air. Even more disturbing are the Environmental Protection Agencies findings that “the level of air pollutants indoors may be anywhere from 2 to 5 times greater than outdoors.” The unhealthy air we breathe has been linked to an increase in health problems such as asthma, chronic lung disease, allergies, nausea, headaches, dizziness…etc.
Industry has responded to consumer demands for healthier indoor air. Unfortunately, many of the man-made air purifiers are not helping to improve indoor air quality. For instance, many industrial ionizers produce considerable levels of ozone. Ozone is an irritant that has been linked to respiratory illnesses. Ozone can irritate the lungs causing problems for people with asthma. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), American Lung Association, and California Air Resources Board have recently warned against the use of ionic air purifiers because of unhealthy ozone being created and released. As well, many ionizers require changing the filters regularly resulting in high maintenance costs.
Invest In Earth Friendly and Socially Conscious Salt Lamps
These ancient therapies are affordable aids for modern times. Our lungs are often under stress from outdoor and indoor air pollution.
Pure Salt lamps release negative ions into the environment, creating some of the benefits of being in a “salt cave.” The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt’s ability to first absorb water, and then evaporate it. As the lamp heats, the heated salt crystal attracts water molecules from the air to its surface. The salt goes into a solution as it mixes with the water molecules. Sodium, as a positively charged ion, and Chloride, as a negatively charged ion, are emitted.
Negative ions are electrically charged particles, and in addition to their beneficial effects on our respiratory and immune systems, they help remove airborne contaminates. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing.
Salt Lamps are beautiful too, and last forever!
Salt Lamps are simply beautiful…and beautifully simple. Available in natural, dramatic shapes or beautifully carved designs, these are attractive room accents “with benefits.”
They have therapeutic benefits as well as promote relaxation. Their natural colors add a sense of serenity and a relaxing feel to homes and offices. As a result, many therapists, feng shui and healing practitioners, doctors, Reiki masters, and others include salt lamps in their offices and waiting rooms.
Salt Lamps last indefinitely (after all, they are already millions of years old). They never lose their ability to generate negative ions or help mitigate EMF fields, and require only replacement 15-watt bulbs to keep their power and beauty for a lifetime. Making them as affordable as they are attractive and functional.
What to Look for When Buying a Negative Ion Air Purifying Lamp / Salt Lamp
It’s important to make sure the salt lamp comes from a reliable source. Dealing with established companies is crucial to ensure this. There are many “fake” ones in the market available in many sizes and prices. Our Salt Lamps are certified and come from the best producers. Visit The Salt Suite and ask for our Salt Lamps.
