What are Salt Lamps?
Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from the rough rocks of Himalayan Salt. Himalayan Salt which have been for thousands years in the lap of mother earth, is the result of geological changes in the region of Pakistan Kheora and Klr Kehar area. This is also called sea salt. Kheora salt range is the 2nd world largest salt reserves in the earth. Crafters in Kheora and related areas such Pind Dadan Khan, Qaidabad, Khushab and Jehlum makes salt crafts including salt lamps. This is the basic source of earning for them apart from farming.
Salt lamps are formulated from pure salt rocks. They are available in different shapes. A small bulb is put in the lamps by giving shapes and hole inside the lamps. When you turn on the lamp, the light coming from inside of the salt rock increases the beauty of salt lamps. To get beauty and energy from lamps, make sure you are purchasing 100% pure Himalayan Salt Lamps regardless of any imitation. Salt and light combination releases the negative ions in the air and change your mood. To understand how it works, let us have some facts and figures about what is ion or what are positive and negative ions.
What is Ion?
Let us go to the scientific theory:-
“An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge.”
Positive Ion (Cation): an atom (or molecule) that has lost one or more electrons due to a high-energy impact. Natural forces that generate positive ions include the decay of radioactive minerals, radon gas, forest fires, lightning and ultraviolet rays.
Negative Ion (Anion): an atom (or molecule) that has gained one or more extra negatively charged electrons. Negative ions are naturally generated by evaporating water, ocean surf, waterfalls and ionic minerals such as Tourmaline, Salt
What are Negative Ions and how they work together?
Negative ions are found in natural places such as water, air eath, water fall, beaches, sunlight, and Earth’s inherent radiation. They are most prevalent in natural places and particularly moving water after thunderstorm.
You can taste the air and experience the feelings near beaches, waterfall.
Negative ions are the results of many environmental changes such as lightning storms, waterfalls, or ocean waves etc. These all changes affects human mind.
Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightning storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or at the beach. Positive ions are the results of often electronic devices such as Tvs, vacuum cleaners etc. The salt and light mixture causes the development of negative ions. Salt is Hygroscopic. Salt releases moisture. Water evaporates quickly due to the small amount of heat from the light source inside the salt lamps. Negative ions are the results of this combination of light, light heat and water being attracted to the surface of salt lamps. Salt is also a source of eradicating bacteria’s, cure ailments, allergies.
FACTS ABOUT NEGATIVE IONS
- They are tasteless.
- In cities, there is lack of negative ions in the area where as in rural areas they are very enough to change your mood.
- In March of 1999, Good Housekeeping Magazine had its engineers test an ionizer by using a smoke test, and found that it cleared out the smoke in a tank.
- A recent study by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture found that ionising a room led to 52% less dust in the air, and 95% less bacteria in the air (since many of the pollutants found in the air reside on floating dust particles).
Negative Ions Create Positive Vibes
There’s something in the air that just may boost your mood.
“The action of the pounding surf creates negative air ions and we also see it immediately after spring thunderstorms when people report lightened moods,” says ion researcher Michael Terman, PhD, of Columbia University in New York.
People feel positive and change in mood while being near places such as water fall, beaches where negative ions are naturally produced.
Why one will use Salt Lamps?
Salt Lamps generate a kind of negative ions. There are now various instruments and machines giving you negative ions but are they natural? Answer is obviously “No”. Salt Lamp is the natural source of creating negative ions. And very natural. Low cost alternative you can get.
