We have a selection of Himalayan Salt Lamps in stock at Fountain Therapies.
Salt Crystal lamps are made from salt crystal rocks, formed over hundreds of millions of years and mined over 800 feet under the foothills of the Himalayas. This rear cystal comes in a range of colours from off-white to apricot and warm pink, they also come in different sizes and no one salt lamp is the same. We also stock Salt Lamps with USB cables so they can be placed on or nearby your computer or laptop.
As the lamp warms up, healthy negative ions lift off from the surface to help cleanse and improve the quality and freshness of the air you breathe. Many of us live and work in surroundings dominated by copmuters, televisions, printers, microwaves ovens, air conditioners and heaters to name a few. These “conveniences” emit excessive amounts of positive ions into the air. This can result in mental and physical exhaustion and effect our health. The most dangerous levels of positive ions in polluted cities. Exhaust fumes from vehicles, cigarette smoke, dust and electromagnetic pollution combine to create a potent mixture of positive ions and ozone that gradually destroys out lungs and ruins our health.
Negative ions are odourless, tasteless and invisable molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments such as mountains, waterfalls and beaches. Once they reach the bloodstream, negative ions are beleved to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost your energy. Ionised air also substantially reduces the numbers of airborne bacteria indoors. It has been found that an astonishingly small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they are less likely to infect people. Salt crystal lamps are a beautiful alternative to man-made ionisers, without any noise and with no harmful side effects.
Below is a list of some of the benefits Himalayan Salt has:
How does the Himalayan salt lamp work?
As a Himalayan salt lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, it also takes positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it also expels negative ions which have the opposite effect on our airways – increasing cilial activity to keep your lungs clear.
