Please be aware that no two salt lamps are the same either in shape, size or colour. Some can be a very dark orange going into a lighter orange almost white. The picture are just to give you an idea of what they can look like.
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 crystal 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 computers, 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 invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments such as mountains, waterfalls and beaches. Once they reach the bloodstream, negative ions are believed 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.
Some Europeans have long been aware of the health benefits of salt for generation, and people suffering from chronic problems go to clinics located in salt mines for treatments. It’s called speleotherapy. This very dry, negative ion-rich environment of the salt mines help to clear out patients bronchial tubes and sinuses, and to kill bacteria and other microbes.
There are many proven healing properties found in Himalayan salt, this salt differs from the “normal” table salt as the salt we consume has been stripped of nutrients that are naturally found within salt leaving sodium and chloride which as we all know leads to fluid retention, high blood pressure and heart problems.
Himalayan salt contains such powerful healing properties that an underground hospital has been carved out of the salt mountains of Wieliczka, Poland for asthmatics and patients with allergies and lung disorders. Out of the several thousand patients who have been treated there, their success rate is over 90%
Only use the salt lamp indoors. To clean the salt please use a dry or slightly damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt. And if cleaning the lamp ensure it is unplugged before you start cleaning.
When using the candle holder ensure to never leave a candle burning unattended and keep away from children, pets and curtains.
