These beautiful atmospheric lamps are known as “vitamins of the air” and I’ll tell you why!

Salt lamps ionize the air around you which means it increases the amount of health promoting negative ions in the air, counterbalancing the positive ion charge from electrical equipment.
This is important for you to know because salt lamps have many direct health benefits.
- Enhanced immunity
- Improved sleep
- Migraine relief
- Purifies the air of allergens, dust, smoke, bacteria and more
- Reduces radiation
- Increases well-being
- Soothes the mind, body and soul
Negative ions are naturally found in nature: before thunder storms, waterfalls and wherever nature is most pure. You may feel the positive effects of these negative ions if you’ve ever visited Niagara Falls or if you’ve been by the sea - it’s a euphoric feeling.
Our electric devices (yes, even our beloved cell phones) are a source of very harmful positive ions also known as “electric smog.” This electric smog results in the breakdown of the condition of the air which then negatively affects our physical and emotional state.
Sources of harmful positive ions are:
- Computer monitors
- Vacuum cleaners
- TV sets
- Microwave ovens
- Electric heaters
- Tobacco smoke
It’s important to ensure that we minimize the effect of this electric smog in the rooms we are in most often. One of the simplest & cheapest ways to do this is to get yourself a salt lamp. It is a natural air ionizer that effectively boosts the number of negative ions in the room and enriches our environment. Not to mention it’s just so simply beautiful! Their deep serene glow is caused by their rich mineral content and as a bonus creates such a lovely atmosphere in the home.
It’s a good idea to place your salt lamp near your computer, TV, radio or any other appliance. You can get one for your office, in your study, workplace, family room or anywhere you want the air quality to be improved. It’s also an excellent choice to create a calm & relaxing environment. They can be used in every room safely and should be left on as much as possible (like anything else, don't leave them unattended).
I have two salt lamps, one for my office right by my computer and the other is in our family room where we hang out everyday and I have it by the TV and all of our other electrical devices.
We love it - not only for all of it's health related benefits but it really does create a lovely mellow/relaxed vibe in the room.
