The most dangerous levels of harmful positive ions occur in the polluted, large industrial and heavily populated cities. Exhaust fumes from cars, trucks, and buses; factory smoke, cigarette smoke, dust and soot, electromagnetic pollution, and overall atmospheric pollution caused by air and sea crafts; all combine to create a mixture of Harmful Positive Ions, and reduces the proportion of beneficial negative ions in our surroundings. This gradually affects our lungs, can ruin our health and cause general lethargy and depression.

Health Benefits

Negative Ions give the air its invigorating freshness and reduce the number of airborne bacteria, which is so beneficial to us. Although negative ion theory is by no means mainstream, many health practitioners in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan use the Salt Crystal Lamps extensively in their recommended treatments of allergies, neuralgia, hypertension, respiratory problems, rheumatism, kidney or liver conditions & hormonal imbalance, sinus, migraine headaches, blood system diseases, to reduce the asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity, increase lung capacity, reduce susceptibility to colds and flu, and for color therapy.

Salt crystal lamps help breath more comfortably to the people suffering with Asthma, Respiratory problem and Chronic Bronchitis.

Salt crystal lamps boost the number of negative ions in the room. Excessive negative ions are essential for high energy and positive mood. Bioenergetics vibrations improve the energy level and strengthen one's nervous system, harmonize the function of sexual glands, and even help to promote sexual energy. That's why people suffering from chronic congestive problems go to clinics located in salt mines for treatment. It is called SPELEOTHERAPY. The very dry, negative ion-rich environment of these salt mines helps to clear out the patients' bronchial tubes and sinuses, and to kill bacteria and other microbes. Others, including many from the USA, swim/float in the salt and mineral rich Dead Sea in Israel.

For health benefits, Negative Ionizers are well recognized in many countries. Most ionizers in the market are man-made machines, while the Salt Crystal Lamps are a beautiful, less costly, maintenance free, and 100% natural alternative to improve air quality.

Taking Care of your Lamp

  • Salt has hygroscopic properties, which means that it draws water from the surrounding atmosphere.

  • Salt Crystal Lamps should therefore never be sprinkled with water.

  • Keep in a dry environment at all times.

  • Lamp should not be placed outdoors.

  • Sometime, in particularly moist or humid conditions, the lamp surface may be slightly damp to the touch. Lighting it for a few hours dries it very quickly.

  • It is recommended that you keep your lamp turned on every day for the best air purifying results, and you can leave your lamp on for as long as possible. This will not only maintain a constant negative ionizing process, but also repel excess moisture build up around the lamp.

  • If you plan not to use the lamp for longer periods of time, just cover the lamp with a plastic bag as prevention from humid conditions.

  • To remove dust, use only a damp (not soaking wet) cotton cloth or sponge.

  • Warning: Keep out of reach of children. Always unplug the lamp before changing the light bulb to prevent electric shock
