HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS & TEA LIGHT HOLDERS HOW DO SALT LAMPS ACTUALLY WORK?
Salt crystals lamps are natural negative ions generators. Salt is naturally hygroscopic which means it naturally attracts moisture. The interaction of humid air with the surface of a salt crystal releases negative ions. When a salt crystal is heated slightly, it generates negative ions. In order to facilitate this, a small light bulb (usually 7 to 40 watts) or tea light is placed inside a salt crystal. Therefore, it is important to remember that any salt crystal lamps or tea light holders under normal conditions will only generate negative ions when it is warmed by the internal light bulb or tea light. The size of the salt crystal lamp and the conditions of the surrounding area, will ultimately determine the radiant effect of a negative ion discharge.
BENEFITS OF HIMALAYAN NATURAL SALT LAMPS
If you have ever experienced the air at a waterfall, on a mountain top, at the seashore, or after a thunderstorm, then you have experienced the results of negative ions and you know how the air smells fresher and how much easier it is to breathe. Many studies have shown various benefits of Himalayan natural salt lamps.
Himalayan natural salt lamps can:
Create a soothing, relaxing, calming and refreshing environment. Fissures and irregularities can naturally be present in salt crystal lamps, being made from natural salt crystals the lamps will never be identical.
Always place the salt lamp or candle holder on a waterproof base to avoid damage to the furniture. Place lamp and electric fitting out of reach of children. When not in use for long periods of time unplug the lamp and store in a sealed plastic bag.
