How do Salt Lamps Actually Work?

Salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract moisture… humidity… airborne water molecules; it is a natural property of sodium chloride. Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. In more humid regions, an unlit salt lamp will eventually “cry,” even creating puddles of water at its base. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health. Did you check zipic?

Besides Ions, What Else are Salt Lamps Used For?

Numerous customers have purchased our salt lamps as a beautiful light source “they can be sold as living energy sources which emit a healthy glow, ranging in color light-waves of oranges, yellows, reds and apricot. The ambient light creates a soothing ambiance that helps with relaxation, stress, attention deficit and more.

Physicians and other practitioners in the exploding field of complementary medicine use our lamps for Color Therapy (chromotherapy), a well-documented alternative method of diagnosing and treating various illnesses. They seek to balance a person’s “energy,” wherever it is lacking (physical, spiritual, emotional or mental).

Countless Ayurvedic and Energy medical professionals have found color therapy to be useful in positively influencing our mood, mental state, and energy level.

Our lamps are hand-carved from Himalayan salt that is 250 million years old and has a very high energetic quality, similar to any other crystal. 

What is an Ion?

Very simply, an ion is an atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron. Both positive and negative ions exist in the air: positive air ions are generally molecules of carbon dioxide that have lost an electron, whereas a negative air ion is generally a molecule of oxygen that has gained an electron. Negative ions in the air attract particles of pollution and give them a negative charge, making them seek an electrical “ground,” and causing them to fall harmlessly to the floor. It stands to reason that we want to be surrounded by negative ions as a way of protecting our health.

Ions cannot be produced without an energy source. An “energy source” means heat or flame, radioactivity, frictional rubbing, electricity, evaporation, etc. Ions can also be produced by high-energy events, such as an open flame or a glowing hot object. Evaporating water will produce negative ions in the air and, as a consequence, leave the damaging positive charges behind in the water that hasn’t yet evaporated.

Salt Crystal Lamps, naturally hygroscopic (absorbing moisture molecules)  are heated gently by a 15 watt bulb.

Our Research

Rose McClintick, a QXCI Practitioner and Biofeedback Analyst, who has been working in the holistic health field for seven years, tested our salt lamps and offered an enthusiastic endorsement in regard to their generation of negative ions: “Regarding the salt lamps, I can tell you that my test shows that it has improved the negative ions. It has taken a little over a week to see an improvement in the numbers. So it does improve — it just takes a little longer for the globesaltlampsceneshot.jpgeffect to show up in the test. (They) will be recommended to have in the bedrooms. You get both working for you, improved neg. ions and a better night’s sleep.” www.zykoffbodywork.com

“I love your Himalayan salt lamps, I bought one for my six year old daughter Izabella who suffers from severe allergies. She had inner nose nodules and within three days of sleeping with her lamp they have shrunk in size. She has had her lamp for months, she has also had less allergy fevers. I love this product!!!! I also bought one for my mother Donna age 78, who has had asthma since she was a child. She also suffers from emphysema, so breathing and coughing is a normal in her everyday life. Since having the salt lamp in the family room where she spends most of her time, she has drastically stopped coughing so much.  She is also down on how much she uses her inhaler a day, seriously down from 8 times to 2, that is amazing!!!!  “ Gabriel Mollina
