Himalayan salt is a natural deposit of rock salt mined in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. These deposits can range in color from light orange to dark pink with some crystals that may have a translucent color. Salt lamps are ancient rocks hollowed out for the use of a candle or a light bulb... read more
Natural colors of bath salts vary based on the origin of the salt. Himalayan salts are usually pinkish or reddish in tone as opposed to salt from the Dead Sea, which is white or clear. Salts are then infused with natural dyes and painted any color. Blue bath salts are calming and soothing, while orange, red, and yellow salts are energizing...read more
Himalayan Crystal Salt is over 250 million years old and is regarded as the purest form of salt for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Although we live with salt around us every day, few people are aware of the unique healing properties found only in quality, Himalayan Crystal Salt, and how using Crystal Salt as a Salt lamp provides harmonizing health effects for adults, children, and animals.
Millions of years ago, when the earth was still forming, immense pressure caused the Himalayan Mountains to rise out of the ocean. The primordial waters that were present at that time were forced up inside the massive Himalayan Mountains. Under staggering pressure for millions of years the salt ocean was converted into solid Himalayan Salt.
Naturally occurring Crystal Salt is made up of over 90 minerals including sodium and chloride, making this exceptional healing aid a coveted, essential remedy and bartering device used over the centuries by civilizations throughout the world.
Prized for its effect on the environment and the body, Himalayan Crystal Salt is especially effective when used in conjunction with light and heat. Whether powered by electricity or candle, when a Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp heats up, its mineral rich surface attracts moisture in the air and in return, emits negative ions. The negative ions bind with the positive ions in the environment, clearing the air from electro-smog and dirty electricity caused by computers, TVs, radios, household appliances, cell phones, indoor lighting, and faulty outlets.
One of the issues nearly everyone faces today is exposure to EMFs, or electromagnetic fields. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness, insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system. The lit salt lamp therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
Pure Crystal Salt lamps release negative ions into the environment, creating some of the benefits of being in a “salt cave.” The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt's ability to first absorb water, and then evaporate it. As the lamp heats, the heated salt crystal attracts water molecules from the air to its surface. The salt goes into a solution as it mixes with the water molecules. Sodium, as a positively charged ion, and Chloride, as a negatively charged ion, are emitted. Negative ions are electrically charged particles, and in addition to their beneficial effects on our respiratory and immune systems, they help remove airborne contaminates. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing.
These one-of-a-kind lamps are hand-chiseled to preserve its primordial energy from a solid block of crystal salt, hand-excavated from millions-year-old pristine seabeds at the foothills of the Himalayas. Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt lamps will last indefinitely; they are already millions of years old. They never lose their ability to generate negative Ions or help mitigate EMF fields, and only require replacement light bulbs to continue their function for a lifetime.
