Are you looking for a natural way to create a soothing environment in your home or office? A Salt Lamp may be just the answer. Besides looking good, Himalayan Salt Lamps (or tea lights) are one of the best natural transmitters of negative ions and help provide air cleansing effects to help purify the air. Usage of salt lamps has shown to reduce pollutants such as pollen, mold spores, viruses, bacteria, smoke, carbon monoxide, chemical odors, electromagnetic pollutants, and is even said to make the air smell better. Come and check out the selection of these products at the Lamb Shoppe.
What is Electromagnetic Pollution?
It is a type of pollution we cannot see or touch. This is invisible electromagnetic frequency waves that come from electronic devices such as cell phone towers, microwaves, television, cordless telephones, computers, Wi-Fi, iPads, and cell phones. Some of us are more sensitive to it than others. Sadly, every day we are exposed to and bombarded by this “electro-smog” and it can result in harmful and toxic effects on our body.
Just What are Negative Ions Anyway?
Negative ions are simply oxygen atoms with an extra electron. Ions are charged particles formed in nature when enough energy acts upon a molecule. The negative ions are known to neutralize free radicals, revitalize cell metabolism and enhance immune function. In addition, they purify the blood and balance the autonomic nervous system, helping to promote deep sleep and healthy digestion.
A Bit of History
For centuries, people around the world have used salt caves to give relief for common respiratory ailments such as asthma, allergies, pneumonia, hay fever, bronchitis, and sinusitis. Interestingly, in Europe over the last few years, people are again turning to salt caves for relief of ailments. Experts are creating new salt caves for healing therapies.
How Salt Lamps Work:
The concept is really quite simple. First, as the Salt Lamp is heated (by being plugged in or tea light burning) it attracts humidity to the surface due to its chemical composition. This warming causes slight moisture on the surface which, in turn, creates a buildup of negative ions that are released into the air. These negative ions bind with harmful positive ions that come from televisions, computers, Wi-Fi, cell phones and so on. The process then neutralizes the electromagnetic pollution and you have purified air.
Salt Lamps have been known to:
Help relieve symptoms of asthma.
Support healing of sinusitis and other common allergies.
Provide migraine and other types of headache relief.
Enhance serotonin levels in the blood.
Beneficial results of a Himalayan Salt lamp are also noted in the treatment of attention-deficit disorder (ADD), anxiety and other related issues.
