Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps
These decorative lights can be used in living and working spaces to improve room air quality, which is important for your feelings of well-being. The warming lamp surface attracts humidity, which then builds a beneficial ion field. In addition, the lamps generate a very pleasant light.
This lamp is a large Himalayan Crystal Salt rock, hollowed out to fit a light bulb, with an added wooden base. It is an impressive decoration, and much more.
Enjoy room climate balancing and pleasant lighting ambience. Negative ion generation can decrease dust particles and airborne allergens.
Research has shown that heated salt crystal lamps act as natural ion generators.
The salt crystal lamps have a similar effect to the ion generator. However, salt crystal lamps have advantages in many aspects and improve the general atmosphere of a room. If the lamp is next to a television or computer monitor, it's effect, through its electromagnetic field, of the device is in approximately the 100-160 Hz zone. Our brain waves however, produce only 4-18 Hz. Therefore, the body is exposed to up to 20 times higher frequency patterns than it creates. The consequences of this exposure results in nervousness, insomnia and lack of concentration or concentration weaknesses. In addition, there will be an accumulation of more free radicals in the body, known to be a cause of wide range of systemic problems.
The salt lamp produces negative ions that bind with the excess positive ions in your room. When the lamp becomes warm, it absorbs moisture, and may feel damp on the surface. The heat builds up the ion field. Through the lamp, the positively charged atmosphere of a room can be neutralized.
In addition to this negative ion effect, the colors of the salt crystal stones have a healing effect. The therapeutic value of the colored crystals can reorganize the epidermal layer of our skin. Tests made with kids having ADHD symptoms have shown that after only one week of exposure to crystal salt lamps, their symptoms subsided. After removing the lamps, the symptoms returned.

Crystal Salt Lamps
Salt crystal lamps have a positive effect on our well-being. There are three natural action principles at play: ionization, the electromagnetic oscillation and the transparent-crystalline structure developing the light waves.
Salt is a primal element, like water and air, and its natural minerals and trace element have unique biophysical and biochemical characteristics. Salt is regarded as neutral, chemically as well as physically, without its own polarity, always balancing and neutralizing.
Exactly like our planet earth's makeup, human beings consist of about 70% water; brine water more specifically. This enormous potential on enclosed brine solution transmits the cosmic oscillation (vibration) energy, not only evenly over our planet, but also reaches deep into our most minute cells and nerves. It's not only the salt from a chemical viewpoint that your body needs to maintain bodily functions, but the salt from a biophysical viewpoint, will always be able to bring your body back into its natural energy vibration rhythm.
Crystal Salt Lamps and Ionization
World-wide laboratory tests, with the most diverse kinds of measuring methodology, furnished the proof that the lit salt crystal lamps deliver ions to our environment. Primarily, the research points to an increased number of negative ions. The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt's ability to first absorb water, then evaporate it.
To explain this more precisely, the heated salt crystal attracts the water molecules from the ambient air to its surface. The salt goes into a solution as it mixes with the water molecules. Sodium, as the positively charged ion, and chloride, as a negatively charged ion, becomes neutral and are emitted back into the environment.
The uniqueness of this ion emission interrelation is only possible with the mineral salt, since salt possesses this transformation ability with water due to it's electrically neutral atomic structure. Scientific investigations of the last decades proved clearly that a balanced ion relationship with a little surplus of negative ions, can have extremely positive effects on our entire physical condition and our health.
The heated salt crystal lamps can be referred to, according to research, as natural ion generators. Here however it is pointed out that the emission of ions by heated salt crystal lamps, should not be regarded as the primary characteristic, because from scientific standpoint, the surplus of negative ions is negligible. More important is it's ability to clean the ambient air. Depending upon size and surface area of the salt crystal used for the lamp, the ambient air surrounding it is measurably cleaned by the transformation cycle of hydrogen and oxygen, as well as sodium and chloride ions. This characteristic is especially helpful for relieving the symptoms associated with asthma and allergies in general.
The results of research into the characteristics of air cleaned through the action of salt crystal lamps is based on a medical treatment method, where the patient enters an underground salt mine and is exposed to the concentrated atmosphere of negative ions. Further scientific research has not taken place yet under medical guidance, since scientific investigations are still at the beginning stages. One cannot compare the therapeutic effect of a singular salt crystal lamp to the effects found in a salt cave (mine), when conducted according to medical guidelines. However, there have been a great variety of holistic and positive self-therapy results, which can be classified as scientifically subjective, and should be recognized and considered.
Crystal Salt Lamps and Electromagnetic Oscillation
The Earth is surrounded by an electromagnetic belt, and within this belt every form of life comes and goes. Therefore, every form of life on this planet earth depends on the power of this electromagnetic field of vibration, known as the Schumann resonance frequency, which states that the given frequency of this electromagnetic field is at 7.83 Hz (cycles) per second. This value in known to be the resonant frequency of our earth.
This resonant frequency is the most often applied measurement to mammals, and can be measured as the resonant frequency of our brains with an EEG. Also, a salt crystal, in its neutral state, exhibits this exact frequency oscillation value. But due to our industrialized and technical way of life, the human organism is being affected, particularly in our homes and offices, to artificial electromagnetic wavelengths, with the most diverse frequency values, caused by electronic devices.
These artificial frequencies have been proven not only to disturb our human organism, but also to promote illness, since they constantly overlap our natural resonant frequency. As a result of this constant exposure to various frequencies, our own electromagnetic energy field becomes imprinted by the frequencies forced upon it, which upsets the natural development of our cells.
Because of the atomic structure of the salt, which is already neutral, it is most likely that the artificial frequencies can be harmonized or balanced by the lit salt lamp as it works as a natural amplifier for the resonant frequency of 8-10 cycles per second, which is so necessary for our life. With the use of a salt crystal lamp we can adjust and neutralize electromagnetic wavelengths caused by electronic devices in natural way.
Crystal Salt Lamps and Light Waves
When we talk about light, we mean (for the most part) the oscillation energies, or electromagnetic wavelengths, which lie in a nanometer range visible to our human eye. From the color therapy viewpoint, it is well-known that the human organism needs the light waves of the rainbow spectrum (300-700 nanometers) for the health and preservation of the body. Our body's cells are supplied by light with new energy in the form of electromagnetic wavelengths. Thus the atomic structure of each individual cell vibrates in its own given order, and can radiate bio photons as the cell's own electromagnetic energy field.
The specific oscillation values of salt crystal lamps depend upon crystalline color structure in the so-called warm clay/tone range of 600-700 nanometers. For decades, the field of medicine, has been using irradiation with monochromatic light, since these color vibration areas exert direct influence on our cell producing functions. To what extent a salt crystal lamp can be employed for natural irradiation therapy, is yet to be seen without further research. However, salt crystal lamps have been used therapeutically for years.
Crystal Salt Lamps and Electrosmog
The crystal salt lamps produce effects similar to those of the sole ionizer, although on a smaller scale. However, these lamps have big advantages, in many aspects, and not only for cleaning the environment of a room. Sitting in front of televisions or computer monitors, we are bombarded with an electro-magnetic frequency of around 100 to 160 Hz. (Hertz). Our brainwaves however, vibrate at around 8 Hz., a rate that equals the Schuhmann-Resonance-Frequency. This means that while watching TV or working at the computer, our body is exposed to frequencies that vibrate 20 times faster than our brainwaves. The result is a lack of concentration, nervousness and insomnia.
Crystal Salt Lamps and their Harmonizing Ionizing Effect
Crystal salt lamps bind the excessive positive ions with their negative ions. When they warm up, they attract humidity and the surface of the salt crystal becomes moist. This causes a field of ions to build up. Crystal salt lamps can also neutralize the electro-smog in a room. Additionally, the various colors of the lamp have positive effects. The therapeutic wavelengths of the colors of these crystals fall within the upper nanometer zone (600 to 700 nanometers), which are visible to our eyes and effect a reorganization of the epidermal layer of the skin. The frequencies at this upper nanometer zone are also used in allopathic medicine for treating skin cancer. Furthermore, tests on hyperactive children with concentration and sleeping disorders (ADHD symptoms) have shown that using crystal salt lamps drastically reduces their symptoms after only one week. When the lamps were removed, their symptoms returned.
Several scientific studies show that salt crystal lamps can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%. In nature Negative Ions are created by means of wind, sunlight, surf, waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons through process of air pollution. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter - the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a waterfall up to 10.000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100.
The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally, it was found to speed recovery in burn or asthma patients, but was later discovered to affect serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively impact our reactions to sensory stimuli. The greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced human performance on mental tasks.
Ionized air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.
Even though they are not a "medical device", Salt Crystal Lamps, by emitting negative ions, significantly reduce a myriad of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have known benefits, and may provide relief from sinus, migraine headaches allergies and hay fever, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.
