Himalayan Mountain and Crystal Rock Salt Background.

Himalayan salt comes from the Himalaya mountains. This is where the primordial sea had dried billions of years ago. This sea (at the time it was water) is the water from which all other life comes from and is the water that contained the building blocks for life on earth. The sun dried the sea, making the elements and minerals bond together which were then compressed by the earth for millions of years creating salt crystals and mountain rocks. Today these crystals and rocks of salt are used for internal and external nutrition and nourishment. The Himalayan crystal rock salt contains approximately 85+ of the 96 of essential minerals and elements found in the circulatory system (human blood) all of which are necessary for a healthy body.

Electric devices make life easier in the office, at home and on the road. However, we often don’t realize that these devices are a source of very harmful positive ions, the so-called electric smog. This concentration of positive ions; deteriorates the condition of air in the rooms, which negatively affects our physical and emotional state.

All products are handcrafted to retain the unique, beautiful and natural shape of the rock and made from Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Rock. The warm glow beautifies any room or office the crystal produces healthy negative ions. Salt lamps & candle holders are known to improve the quality of air with negative ions which improve our health.

The most important sources of harmful positive ions are:

  • Computer Monitors
  • TV sets and radio receivers
  • Microwave ovens, electric heaters
  • Dryers, Vacuum cleaners etc.
  • Tobacco smoke

Studies suggest that ca. 1000 – 1500/cm3 is the number of ions acceptable for general health. In a closed room where a few people work at the same time, the number of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3.

The positive effect of negative ions can be experienced by visiting a Salt Mine, a walk by the sea or a walking right after a storm. This is how important it is to reduce the harmful effect of electric smog.

The cheapest and the simplest method of fighting electric smog is to air rooms regularly, particularly those with few or more people using anything electrical or where cigarettes are smoked. You can also use air ionizers, but these are quite expensive. Salt lamps and candle holders are more affordable and last a lifetime. Warming the salt using bulbs and candles increases the speed of the effects.

Our well-being and efficiency are dependent on the air we breathe. Air consists of many electrically charged particles – positively, negatively charged or neutral particles. The quality of the air we breath depends on the kind of electrical charge and concentration of ions.

Today, when artificial products of civilization surround us, natural salt lamps are a unique product, and worth having at home, at the office and as a gift…
