Salt Lamps. Color and Energy For Your Well-being

Our physical and mental health is influenced, among other things, by the ion balance in the surrounding environment.
Nowadays there are more sources of positive ions than in the past, creating an electrical imbalance. To understand this, we must realize how our mood changes when we are in the mountains or inside a pine forest, in which there is a bigger amount of negative ions.
Hence the importance of solving these problems by ionizing the air. A salt crystal lamp is an innovative and effective way to reach this objective.
IONIZING THE SURROUNDING AIR
A salt crystal lamp, apart from being a beautiful decorative object, is healthy: It has natural qualities that help get rid of negative energy and stress.
Electricity consists of positive (+) and negative (-) ions. The term “negative” does not mean that they are “bad”, but that they have that polarity. An ion (-) is an electrically charged molecule. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost electrons due to environmental pollution. As it has been verified through scientific studies, negative ions are very beneficial to our health.
Our physical and mental health is influenced among other things, by the ionic balance of the air that surrounds us. Nowadays there are more sources of positive ions than in the past, creating an electrical imbalance. To understand this, we must realize how our mood changes when we are in the mountains or inside a pine forest, in which there is a bigger amount of negative ions. The different human activities and electrical appliances release positive ions which lie at the basis of the deterioration of our physical and emotional wellbeing. Examples of those activities and appliances are discharge of voltage in high-voltage networks, heating and cooling systems, TVs, radios, transmitters, radar systems, computers, exhausts and cigarette fumes.
The quality of the air we breathe is essential to our health and wellbeing. Breathing pure clean air not only keeps us alive, but also allows us to think more clearly, sleep more soundly and stay healthier. Studies show that we receive 56% of our energy from the air we breathe, more than from water and food combined.
Pollution due to excessive amount of positive ions in the air can cause weakness, anxiety, depression, insomnia and common respiratory diseases.
The same way, scientific studies prove that salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count by 300%. In nature negative ions are created by means of wind, sunlight, surf, waterfalls and rainstorms. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimetre – the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a waterfall up to 10,000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100.
BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF SALT CRYSTAL LAMPS
It is important to try to prevent the problems created by excessive positive ions in the air and to ionize the air is a way to do this.
A salt crystal lamp is an innovative way to ionize the air. Although it is not a medical device, salt crystal lamps reduce sensibly indoor air pollutants by emitting negative ions.
.Negative ions have known benefits, and may provide relief from sinus, migraine headaches, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to flu.
Salt crystal lamps are known to improve the quality of the air by producing negative ions (“vitamins of the air”). The result is a healthy air at home because it neutralizes the negative ions released by TVs and electrical appliances in general.
The beautiful and rich orangish colour of the crystal salt lamps has been used in colour therapy. It represents the heart, warmth and comfort. Proponents of colour therapy have used the qualities of salt crystal lamps to enhance the emotional wellbeing and balance of people with encouraging results.This therapy suggests that orange light favours creativity and has stimulating and relaxing effects on people, whereas white light reinforces concentration and helps clarify ideas.The lamp, with its dim light, creates a very soothing, agreeable and natural atmosphere that makes your house more beautiful while having a positive effect on our mood and physical wellbeing.
Our lamps are made of natural salt crystal rocks formed in deposits in the Himalaya after more than 250 million years. The salt is not treated, but shown directly as nature offers it to us. The only treatment is the hole drilled in the lamp in order to insert the bulb, cleaning and polishing it.Each lamp is unique and has been hand made.
They are used to create an agreeable atmosphere, to decorate sleeping rooms, sitting rooms and make certain corners of the house more beautiful. We will particularly use them in those offices, flats or rooms or areas of them which correspond to those parts of life which would like to be improved. Lamps are often resorted to in order to balance rooms of irregular structure or that contain incomplete forms, placing the lamp in that part of the room that breaks the harmony. It can also be placed in ionically charged places due to excessive presence of electrical appliances like TVs, computers …
