By emitting negative ions, a salt lamp neutralizes air, lowers pollution and reduces the risk of airborne infections. Salt lamps also lead to an overall feeling of well-being.
Electronic devices such as computers and televisions emit positive ions into the air. Research has shown that an increase in positive ions leads to tiredness, moodiness, depression and a drain on energy levels. The negative ions produced by a salt lamp counteract these positive ions.
Salt lamps are made from salt crystals harvested from the Himalayan mountains. These rocks are over 250 million years old and come in a variety of colors including reds, oranges and yellows.
