how salt lamps work

An excess of positively charged ions in the environment is believed to contribute to tiredness, lack of energy, tension, anxiety, and irritability. Positive ions in the air have even been investigated as a contributing factor for asthma and depression.

Negative ions create positive vibes. Ever wondered why you feel so great in places such as forests, mountains, waterfalls and beaches? In nature, there is an abundance of negative ions, which are odourless, tasteless invisible molecules.

Evaporation Creates –Ions
Salt is hygroscopic, which means it naturally attracts water. Excessive moisture in your air can cause bacteria to grow and allergies symptoms to occur. Warmth from an incandescent bulb assists with air purification and prevents salt crystal from sweating. Heat from bulb allows the moisture to evaporate and emit negative ions.

-Ions Found in Nature
Negative ions are naturally found in nature near waterfalls, oceans and before rain storms.

+Ions Emitted by Technology
Positive ions are emitted by technology like computers, cell phones and microwaves.

-Ions Pair with +Ion
Negative ions pair with positive ions and help cleanse the air.
