What you need to know about Salt Lamps



If someone were to tell you that they could clean your house by using a salt lamp, you would probably think that they were crazy, however should you decide to give them a chance to explain themselves, you would discover how clean your home's air can be with the help of a Himalayan salt crystal lamp.

What is a salt lamp anyway? With numerous lamps in the house, do you still need more illumination? Also, from the look and appearance of this salt lamp, you would wonder how a chunk of salt would affect your home decor. However, a salt lamp may be the most important lamp you can have in the home. Why is this so? A salt lamp promotes the health and wellness of everybody living in the household; it is recognized for its air-cleansing ability aside from its aesthetics.

A salt lamp is a natural chunk of salt rock taken from the mines found in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Since the salt mines have been in existence for millions of years, they have gathered many minerals within their salt supply. Therefore, a piece of salt rock from these mines also contains the minerals of the earth that have accumulated for millennia, minerals which are effective in helping to ionize the air.

The chunk of salt is shaped, mounted to a wooden base, and drilled to form a hole that can accommodate a candle or a light bulb. It is made available in different sizes and shapes to give variety to the user. When used, the heat that is emitted by the bulb or by the flame makes the salt lamp emit ions that are negatively charged. These negative ions then help produce cleaner air.

How can the salt lamp actually do this? The air is composed of many elements. These elements include ions which are pollutants such as dust particles that are not easily seen by the naked eye. Pollutants make up most of the air particles and they are also positively charged ions. The action of the salt lamp is to neutralize these positive ions through emitting negative ions. When this happens, the neutralized substances get heavy and ultimately fall, eliminating them from the normal air circulation, thereby eliminating pollution. Electronic devices used at home also produce electro-smog which can affect the concentration as well as the breathing of individuals. Ironically, many mechanical air ionizers that are meant to clean the air actually produce pollution of their own. With a salt lamp, this electro-smog is significantly repressed; in fact, the salt lamp helps eliminate electro-smog of other devices in the home such as personal computers.

Salt lamps will not only complement the natural look of your home but they will also encourage health and wellness through a clean environment. Also, a salt lamp not only enhances the health of an individual, but it also helps in keeping other ailments and allergies at bay. For an inexpensive and easy way of boosting the health of your family, try lighting a salt lamp.
