Bio-energetic crystal salt was created over millions of years ago, when the ocean waters dried up in various parts of the world. The crystal is hand excavated into various sizes and drilled inside to accommodate a light source. When lit by a small, energy efficient light bulb of 15 watt or less, crystal salt emits an electrical charge, enriching our environments with health promoting negative ions. Negative ions help purify the air of allergens, dust, smoke, bacteria and more. These natural qualities make them an excellent beautiful light source, natural air purifier and can help people with various health conditions including asthma, allergies and other respiratory ailments. They can be used in every room, safely and should be left on as much as possible.
The gentle heat of the lamp in the salt crystal creates a higher surface temperature than the surrounding air. This attracts the water molecules in the cooler surrounding air. The natural humidity in the air condenses on the crystal's surface. This enables the electrically bound sodium chloride mineral to split into independent (positive) sodium and (negative) chloride ions.
The atomic structure of crystal salt contains more negative, chloride ions than positive, sodium ions which result in the emission of negative ions during the natural ionization process. Negative ions become dust collectors, attaching themselves to positively charged dust particles and cigarette smoke, purifying the circulating indoors air from dust, bacteria and pollutants.
Again, you can never have too many salt lamps, so start with at least one lamp in every room possible and add more as you personally experience the benefits of nature’s most abundant and healthful resource, salt crystal.
Natural Salt lamps are for indoor use. Crystal Salt is hygroscopic; it draws moisture from the air. In case of increased humidity, the lamp should be turned on. The heated salt lamp will dry itself off. If the lamp is left off for periods of time, and becomes very damp--- unplug it. Take the electrical unit out. If the unit is wet, place in a dry, place. Wipe the salt crystal with cotton towel until moisture is removed. Following the drying process of the electrical unit and salt crystal, and reassembly, turn the lamp ON for couple of hours. Keep the lamp on a waterproof surface and or watch for moisture build up. If you store the salt lamp for long periods unlit, seal it in a plastic bag in a cool dry place. As lamp is heavy, keep out of reach from small children.
