As for me and my house, we will embrace Salt Lamp goodness!!
Visit So Well to check them out.
A salt lamp is a piece of Himalayan salt that has been hollowed out to house and embrace the heat emitted from a small light bulb.
Salt lamps come in many different sizes and you want to purchase one that is made from pure Himalayan salt.
Ions: The Negative and Positive
Salt lamp manufacturers and many salt lamp users claim that there are health benefits to Salt Lamps because of the negative ions they emit. And, while they do emit negative ions, the salt lamps, by themselves, do not produce the negative ions.
Salt, by its own nature, attracts water.
It is the added element of heat that causes this water to evaporate creating the negative ions. Negative ions are naturally found in nature near waterfalls and oceans and before rain storms.These are sources that generally make us feel very peaceful, at rest with our spirit My spirit is always renewed by being near an ocean, a mountain waterfall, a lake in the country and a warm refreshing shower in the rain.
“Normal ion counts in fresh country air is 2,000-4,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. At a large water fall you might find over 100,000 negative ions. Polluted air such as in large cities might have less than 100 ions.”
Positive ions are emitted by technology like computers, cell phones, microwaves.
There have been many claims that these items are detrimental to our health, some doctors have stated that cell phones should be at least five feet away from where you are sleeping. Yikes…who follows this thought or even knows it is a possibility to incur damage doing otherwise.
Mold, bacteria and pollution are also bad for our quality of life, and all carry positive charges.
Positive ions are absorbed into our body as free radicals and cause cell damage and premature aging.
The negative ions pair up with the positive ions and help cleanse the air
” Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishingly small quantity of negative ions could KILL bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people. A separate series of scientific studies elsewhere show that Salt Lamps and salt tea lights can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%!” (drleakelley.com)
It is believed Salt lamps will neutralize the air if placed right next to your computer (perfecthealthnow.com)
I am partial to that last point though, because a positive placebo effect (if that’s what it is) is valuable.
If anything, we attribute the calming claims of the salt lamp users to the Law of Attraction?
We think the salt lamp is beautiful and that it brings peace and calm and those are the thoughts they put out to the Universe and…so it does.
In today’s negative environment, what is not to embrace about something good….🤔
