Salt Lamps - Beautiful Natural Ionizers
Have you ever noticed the difference in the air when you’ve had a chance to breathe in the fresh forest air or cool breeze from the ocean? Don’t you feel relaxed and regenerated? In the forest the dense trees create an oxygen-rich environment. And ocean breezes are highly charged with healthy negative ions that feed our cells. Wouldn’t you like to have that natural element all the time, in your indoor environment?
Pure salt lamps release negative ions into the environment, creating some of the benefits of being in a “salt cave.” Negative ions are electrically charged particles, and in addition to their beneficial effects on our respiratory and immune systems, they help remove airborne contaminates. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing.
One of the issues nearly everyone faces today is exposure to EMFs, or electromagnetic fields. Actually, electromagnetic fields are essential to life on earth and every form of life depends on this electromagnetic belt that surrounds the Earth. We also have exposure to EMF’s from televisions and computer monitors. The EMF from either of these components is approximately 100 – 160Hz, whereas the EMF of the earth is 7.83 Hz. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness, insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system.
Crystal salt, in its neutral state, exhibits an exact frequency oscillation value of 8-10 cycles per second. The lit lamp therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
Beautiful and Last Forever
Many people purchase these beautiful lamps for their unique inner glow and warm light rather than their therapeutic benefits. Their deep, serene glow is caused by their rich mineral content. Their natural colors add a sense of serenity and a relaxing feel to homes and offices. Available in natural, dramatic shapes or beautifully carved designs, these are attractive room accents “with benefits.” As a result, many therapists, feng shui and healing practitioners, doctors, Reiki masters, and others include these lamps in their offices and waiting rooms.
They last indefinitely (after all, they are already millions of years old). They never lose their ability to generate negative ions or help mitigate EMF field.
What To Look For When Buying A Crystal Salt Lamp
When purchasing, look for are hand-chiseled lamps to preserve its primordial energy from a solid block of crystal salt. The best are those that are hand-excavated from millions-year-old pristine seabeds at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, Polish Salt Caves and rare Persian Salt Beds.
If you’re buying the Salt Lamp for therapeutic purposes, here are some guidelines on matching your salt lamp to your room size:
Small/medium lamps (5-7) lbs: Place next to computer or workstation to help minimize EMFs. These are perfectly sized for bedrooms, bathrooms, smaller rooms, or grouped together for dramatic visual effect and enhanced ionization benefits.
Medium/Large lamps (9-13 lbs): These bring a beautiful glow and healthier air to kitchens, office reception areas, home offices, playrooms, or place near computer and audio equipment in home theaters or den.
Extra Large lamps (16-20 lbs): Dramatic accents that are ideal for counter displays, businesses, therapists’ offices, in lofts or large rooms, or wherever greater ionization capabilities are desired.
