Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. Running water is considered nature’s greatest source of negative ions and may be one of the things that contributes to the refreshing scent of waterfalls and the beach. In fact, this is one of the reasons people often report feeling renewed or refreshed after a storm or after spending time at the beach. https://himalayansaltboutique.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-easycart-data/products/pics1/Himalayan%20Salt%20Rain%20Drop%20Salt%20Lamp_5e364a00d0aaadd5fbb3aac0f01e4a54.jpg
I purchased this item from Amazon and a year or so later the dimmer switch stopped working. When I took it apart to inspect I found the transistor (which is severely undersized for this design) had overheated and burned up itself and the circuit board. I searched the part numbers online and discovered this is the *exact same* board that has been recalled by other manufacturers (i.e., Micheals). I do not understand why Amazon has not recalled their version of it yet. It is a fire waiting to happen. I would not recommend anyone using this product. https://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/170312_sleeplamp_main2.jpg

So yes, they’re beautiful, and you’re totally welcome to get one for that purpose. It’s just unlikely to provide any measurable medical benefits. But if you want one to add to your meditation routine or because it fits with your decor, go for it. “It’s a nice new-age prop to have,” Kogan says. “But also we have to be smart and not fall prey to marketing claims.” http://www.ipagepro.com/saltlampsetc/logos/SaltLamp_0468.jpg
Being the most pressing issue of fast moving life, anxiety and stress are managed in a variety of ways. Some people trust psychiatrists and prescribed medicines for treatment of anxiety and become dependent on sleeping pills and tranquillizers. Others opt for complimentary and alternate therapies for managing anxiety like meditation, yoga, acupuncture, Reiki, etc. But one of the method that is gaining momentous popularity , is “Halotherapy” or Salt Therapy. A more cheaper and sustainable practice for gaining full benefits of salt is use of salt lamps.

Incidentally, that nice pinkish color that glows once the bulb is turned on is the only thing you are going to get from a salt lamp. Salt lamps may look neat, but claims that they can do anything medically rely — fatally — on the claim that the lamps produce negative ions and then further rely on a series gross simplifications or misinterpretations of science to argue that those negative ions (which don’t exist in the first place) could affect you in any meaningful way. https://himalayansaltboutique.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-easycart-data/products/pics1/4%20Four%2011-14%20lb.%20Salt%20Lamps%20Pack_e4fb4802910108ff1b758a779ef43a0b.jpg

Some electromagnetic waves carry so much energy per quantum that they have the ability to break bonds between molecules. In the electromagnetic spectrum, gamma rays given off by radioactive materials, cosmic rays and X-rays carry this property and are called ‘ionizing radiation’. Fields whose quanta are insufficient to break molecular bonds are called ‘non-ionizing radiation’. Man-made sources of electromagnetic fields that form a major part of industrialized life — electricity, microwaves and radiofrequency fields — are found at the relatively long wavelength and low frequency end of the electromagnetic spectrum and their quanta are unable to break chemical bonds. http://static.shoplightspeed.com/shops/607210/files/004974193/262x276x2/gamma-salt-crystals-mini-salt-lamp-4-5-lbs.jpg
It had started as a coping mechanism to keep my mind off of my worries — a stabbing here, a throat-slit there — but it quickly spun out of control. First it was an ugly wanted man, then a good-looking catcaller, next, a creep on the bus, then a guy who yelled at my dog, eventually some lady didn’t hold the door for me at Yogurtland. Then I woke up one day and realized I was just murdering – without cause. It got to the point that I lost count of the bodies, sometimes burying one right on top of the other while the grave was still fresh – this is the kind of thing people with anxiety go through. People would say, “Snap out of it!” or “Why can’t you just stop?” or “Fucking shit oh shit you stabbed my neck oh fucking shit shit shit” – it’s this kind of stigma that keeps people with mental illnesses from seeking treatment. https://3utkj32z22c5182hg334ib6l-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/lamp71-300x300.jpg
The imbalance between the demands on all of us arising from our work, family, friends and environment are taking a toll not only on our physical health but are affecting our mental and emotional health. As a result our body experiences stress and anxiety. Depending on the level and extent of stress, a number of affects can influence a person, including:
Hi Nancy, I’ve read a comment of a lady who advised that When not using the lamp for long periods of time, don’t leave your lamp in a humid room, as it attracts moisture from the air (as part of its function) and it began to weep all over her furniture. I have also read a recommendation of Himalayan salt lamps manufacturer that recommends placing your Himalayan salt lamp onto a decorative plate or holder to avoid it leaving marks on furniture. The manufacturer also recommends that if you plan on having your lamp switched off for an extended period, he recommends unplugging the power cord, separating the cord from your salt lamp, and wrapping the salt lamp in a plastic bag to keep it air tight. This will prevent the lamp from pooling water. http://www.naturallivingideas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/cubed-salt-lamp.jpg

How it works Himalayan Salt Lamps also release negative ions and counteract positive ions. This happens when the heat from the light bulb evaporates the water molecules. Salt lamps do not release a ton of negative ions, but enough that you will be able to feel the positive effects. Putting more than one lamp in a bigger space can increase the benefits. https://prodimage.images-bn.com/pimages/0705911339699_p0_v1_s550x406.jpg

Despite numerous experimental and analytical differences across studies, the literature does not clearly support a beneficial role in exposure to negative air ions and respiratory function or asthmatic symptom alleviation. Further, collectively, the human experimental studies do not indicate a significant detrimental effect of exposure to positive air ions on respiratory measures. Exposure to negative or positive air ions does not appear to play an appreciable role in respiratory function. https://cdn.wellnessmama.com/wp-content/uploads/The-truth-about-himalayan-salt-lamps.jpg

Made of the same stuff you might sprinkle on dinner or cook a slab of salmon on, a Himalayan salt lamp consists of a large, often jagged crystal of pink salt fitted with a light bulb inside. (Please do not try to eat this lamp! Why do we have to tell you that?!) Supposedly, the heat from that bulb causes the salt to be released into the air—basically what you'd experience in a salt cave on a much less expensive scale. Think of how you feel after a day at the beach. Science aside, something magical definitely happens to your body after soaking up all that salty ocean air for an afternoon: Your skin's moisturized and clear, and the whole sleep thing? You go down like a rock after a beach day, right? It's not really that far-fetched to try and simulate this in your bedroom. https://saltspafl.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Bamboo-Salt-Lamp-500x500.jpg

A large block of salt, like a pink Himalayan salt rock crystal, works by attracting the water molecules in your room. In so doing, it also pulls in all the pollutants and contaminants attached to these molecules. The salt rock lamp helps to detoxify your room by capturing and holding these particles so they aren’t left floating around for you to breathe in. Then, as the bulb heats the lamp, the water vapor is released back into the air, but the rock salt lamp retains the contaminants. http://thespiritscience.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/9720a2a492d9f4bdce80d93316b67dbf-672x372.jpg


At first I was a bit concerned after reading reviews about the dimmer switch (basically a variable resistor) heating up, melting, and causing a fire. My kid bought this Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp for my wife as a Christmas gift because she has been wanting one for a long time. I read up on the fire hazard and noticed that a recall has been placed on this salt lamp. All of the one star rated "fire warning" reviews are from many months or years ago. So I assume that the batch that was sent out has had this dimmer issue fixed. Basically a higher wattage variable resistor is needed to fix this problem.
A fireside glow holds a special place in our hearts thanks to the beauty and warmth it casts around it, making an ordinary evening into something special and unique. Now, a busy modern life keeps the majority of us from having the time to get away from the constant barrage of radiation and information that technology is throwing at us. You can get a glow that's just as soothing with even more health benefits with a Himalayan basket salt lamp.

First of all, salts are compounds which are made from combinations of elements that form ionic bonds. Ionic bonds are chemical bonds where the valence electron(s) which participate in bonding are not shared equally by the two atoms. Ionic compounds form in nature with a nearly perfect balance of charge so that there are just as many positive ions as negative ions in the compound. Because of this if a big block of salt were to release lots of negative ions into the air it would develop a net positive charge which would not allow more negative ions to be released. One way that negative ions could be released is if the block of salt released both negative and positive ions into the air in equal proportions. This, however, would have just as much of a negative effect, from the positive, “free radical” ions, as a positive effect from the negative ions. https://draxe.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/HimalayanSaltLamp-ArticleMeme.jpg
The salt comes to you today in the form of a lamp, which, when lit, gives off what might be called a primordial glow, one part sunset, one part molten lava, creating a light source that has captivated all who see it.

The termite free & corrosion free wood is harvested from Neem tree from Pakistan and best suitable wood for salt lamps. https://purepinksalt.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/large-lamp-2.jpg

What's more, the amount of air in the room is so huge relative to the size of the rock crystals that few of the pollutants circulating in the room could stick to the surface of the rock salt. Even if the lamps did manage to attract pollutants, the surface of the rock salt would quickly become coated with pollutants and no more could stick. Meanwhile, the air supply is always being replenished, either through ventilation systems or open doors or windows, bringing ever-more air pollutants into the room, he said. https://www.healthline.com/hlcmsresource/images/AN_images/himalayan-salt-lamp-in-shape-of-bowl-1296x728.jpg
