Salt Lamps and Negative Ions

hallway into shop copy 2Scientific research has shown that the amount of ions in the environment, that is acceptable by humans is 1000-1500/cm3. In closed rooms where a few people work at the same time or a room where electronic appliances are utilized the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3. In order to increase the number of negative ions in the environment, air ionizers are used. These air ionizers generate the negative ions and balance the atmosphere of the room. You can experience this effect by a visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, by going to the ocean, or by taking a walk right after a storm. In areas where negative ions are naturally produced, there can be a negative ion concentration of up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or after being  at the beach.

The harmful effect of electric smog, resulting in the concentration of positive ions, deteriorates the condition of air in rooms, and then negatively affects our physical and emotional state. Therefore it is important to reduce this to a minimum.   To help you remove electric smog, we suggest having Salt Lamps in your homes and offices. These are made from a natural salt crystal, and are natural air ionizers that effectively boost the number of negative ions in a room. The effect of air ionization by salt originates from physical and chemical properties of salt. In salt lamps the ionization effect is additionally enhanced by heating the salt crystal with a bulb installed inside the lamp. As a result, the lamp improves the quality of our environment, and thus our well-being. Since things like airborne mold, bacteria, and allergens often carry a positive charge, they can be neutralized by the negative ions of a Salt Lamp, as well.
