Only for use Indoors
They can be used in any room where you work, rest or sleep. For example, in your office near your computer.
They are not suitable for bathrooms, kitchens or outside. Not suitable for damp areas.
Keep the lamps away from water and damp surfaces. The salt is a natural mineral and is hygroscopic do not allow it to get wet. If it does become wet just allow it to dry naturally, while its switched on the heat from the bulb will be enough to dry it. To clean the lamp, simply use a dry cloth or a light bristled brush.
About Ions And Your Health
We spend most of our lives in enclosed places. Our frame of mind and physical condition depend on the composition of the air that we breathe. Air is electrically charged, which means it contains indefinite proportions, positively charged molecules (positive ions) and negatively charged molecules (negative ions).
Scientific research has shown that their balance is required to create a good mood. Computers screens, air-conditioning and TV sets are sources of surplus positive ions in the air. These devices make an electrical smog that can lead to bad moods, weakness and sleeplessness. We must add negative ions to the atmosphere to achieve a balance in the air and neutralise the electrical smog around our homes and work places. The environment we live in is full of positive ions that make the air more polluted. These positive ions are being discharged by electrical appliances, high voltage networks, heating and cooling plants, radio and television transmitters, radar systems, tobacco, computers and TV sets.
Rock Salt crystal is known to be one of the most efficient emitters of negative ions that improve the air quality. Salt lamps create a microclimate that is similar to the air after a light spring storm. In the high country and near the waterfalls, fresh air carries around 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter whereas in big cities, during rush hours and traffic jams, the negative ions do not exceed more than 100 to 120 ions per cubic centimeter.
The presence of negative ions in the atmosphere creates a state of well-being. Salt crystal, thanks to its chemical composition, is an ideal source of negative ions.
Negative ions clean the air of: ·
- Pollen (grass, weed and tree pollen) ·
- Dust mites
- Mold spores
- Hay fever
- Seasonal affective disorder ·
- Chronic fatigue
The atmosphere we breathe normally is full of positive and negative ions. Air conditioning, lack of ventilation, and long dry spells remove negative ions, which usually serve to latch onto airborne dirt particles and wrestle them to the floor. The proportion of negative ions is highest around moving water (storms, oceans, rivers, waterfalls) - it's no wonder that we feel so energised at the beach. The best ratios of negative to positive ions are associated with waterfalls and the time before, during, and after storms.
The worst are found in windowless rooms and closed, moving vehicles. Air purifiers typically work by emitting negative ions, which purify room air by attaching to impurities and sinking them. High concentrations of negative ions are essential for high energy and positive mood. The impact of negative ions is powerful. Originally they were found to help asthma patients. Later they were discovered to affect Serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively affect reactions to sensory stimuli. The attendant greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced performance of mental tasks.
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".
Rock Salt Crystal Lamps are highly suitable for daily use near televisions, computers, around smokers, in offices with air-conditioning, during massage therapy, in mediation rooms and anywhere else you want to restore or preserve the natural air quality. Salt lamps are very useful on a daily basis to improve our health and psyche. They not only make for pleasurable surroundings and notable conversation pieces, they have been reported to help improve our health.
