Looking around the Organic Shop in Dubai Mall over the weekend I discovered something useful and definitely beautiful to add to your home decors. The Rock Salt Lamp.
Salt crystal lamps are natural ion generators, emitting negative ions into the atmosphere. Negative ions are good for you because it restore and neutralize air quality.
Benefits of Rock Salt Lamp
Salt lamps emit negative ions when the heat produced from the lamp breaks down Na CL Sodium Chloride in a process called ionization. The ionization helps combat many of the harsh elements that bombard our bodies, causing us to feel unwell.
Negative ions emitted by salt lamps help reduce dust, bacteria, pet odor, insomnia,odor, allergies, sinus, depression, migraines, anxiety, fatigue, colds, ADHD, asthma. Negative ions can be used to treat illness and improve health.
Our homes and offices are filled with electrical appliances and electronics (televisions, computers, florescent lighting, microwaves, heaters, air-conditioners, etc.). Use of such devices have been blamed for lowering our energy levels, making us feel tired, cranky, and depressed because of their emissions of positive ions. Keeping a rock salt lamp in areas where positive ions are polluting your air space will help neutralize the air you breathe. Balancing positive and negative ions also help reduce airborne infections.
How Do Rock Salt Lamps Work?
The heat from a lighted salt lamp attracts moisture. The evaporation of water through salt emits negative ions. How many negative ions a salt lamp or salt candle holder can release depends on its size and how warm a match-lit candle or electric light bulb makes it. Naturally, the larger an area means a larger lamp is needed so that more more negative ions will be emitted.
Apart from all these benefits, rock salt lamps are safe and beautiful to have in your homes.
