Why are Salt Lamps good for you?

As well as being beautiful, salt lamps release negatively charged ions. These negative ions neutralize positively charged ions given out by computers, televisions, power grids etc. Negatively charged ions create an environment that is similar to being near the sea or a waterfall and are what give the air in these areas that fresh feeling. The salt lamps should be lit at all times as they give off more negative ions that way.

By using Salt Crystal lamps, we can easily improve our environment, not only thorough the ionizing effects of the lamp but through the beautiful light they cast in a room! It is highly recommended to use them near a TV or computer, in a designated smoking room and an air-conditioned room.

Where do Salt Lamps come from?

Salt crystal lamps are made from salt crystal rocks. This salt crystal comes from the ancient seas and is now available in the foothills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. Salt crystals of this quality are rare.

How are Salt Lamps made?

Explosives and standard mining methods cannot be used when mining salt crystal rock; they must be hand crafted to retain their original structure. This means that every salt lamp is different in size, shape, colour and intensity. Each salt lamp is unique.

Where should I put my salt lamp?

Basically, anywhere you want cleaner, fresher smelling air!

How are Salt Lamps Used?

Many European and North American bioenergotherapists and homoeopathists recommend Salt Lamps to aid in the treatment of several health conditions, such as the following:

What effect do the different colours have?

The variety of colour in the Salt Lamps is because of iron and copper in the salt. These naturally occurring elements can produce colours ranging from yellow to peach to orange to red. You can also achieve certain colours using tinted light bulbs. Because of the connotations of crystals, salt lamps are perfect for use in colour therapy. There are some interesting theories when it comes to colour therapy. Each colour has its own energy pattern, which is why it separates out of white light into a rainbow when sent through a prism. The idea behind colour therapy is that the energy of each colour travels to whatever part of the body needs it. It's worth a try!
