As well as looking beautiful, this natural Himalayan Salt Lamp can provide significant health benefits for your family and home.
Do you ever notice how refreshed and re-energised you feel after swimming in the ocean or sitting by a waterfall? That's because they release an abundance of negative ions which act as anti-depressants and which are essential for your health, body and brain functions and sense of wellbeing. Being indoors and around electrical goods such as the tv or computer has the opposite effect, as they release harmful positive ions which can cause headaches, irritability, depression, poor concentration and lethargy.
In fact, the European Environment Agency (EEA) has issued health hazard warnings in relation to exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and even blames it for such conditions as: weight gain; infertility issues; depression and mental issues; cancers; reduced bone density; behavioural changes; depression and mental issues; constipation and sleeping disorders - as well as others...
Himalayan Salt Lamps release negative ions into the air in your home to counterbalance these effects. I keep mine on permanently by my TV and my computer to neutralise the electromagnetic radiation.
Negative ions are basically oxygen ions with an extra electron attached, produced through water molecules. This is why they are in such abundant supply near fresh, flowing water. This also explains how refreshing it can be to have a shower, swim or take a bath when we are feeling tired or sleepy. The air around waterfalls, for example, can contain anywhere from 30,000 to 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimetre compared to a few hundred indoors. Negatively charged fresh air has been found to be an effective treatment for, and prevention of, depression.
As well as emitting negative ions, salt lamps can also purify the air and improve the air quality. The way they do this is through a process hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. As the lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt
Enhance seratonin levels in the blood;
Improve your immune system;
Relieve headaches and stress;
Improve energy levels and overall sense of wellbeing;
The firebowl comes with loose salt rocks which sit in the bowl on top of the 15w bulb ro resemble 'coals'.
Each lamp has a round, wooden base, comes with an Australian Plug, a 15w bulb and weighs approximately 3.5kg with the rocks.
Please note - if left switched off for a long while, the lamp will absorb water from the air and release it as a puddle which can ruin the surface that it's placed on. Switching the light on will help the purified water to evaporate back into the air. Fragile - keep out of the reach of small children.
