Salt crystal lamps information


Positive effect of salt lamps on our environment

     Today, at the beginning of the 21st century we can hardly, if only, imagine living without many electric devices. They make it easier for us to work in the office, at home, they entertain us. However, we often do not realize that they are also a source of very harmful positive ions, the so-called electric smog. The harmful effect of electric smog, resulting in the concentration of positive ions, deteriorates the condition of air in rooms, what then negatively affects our physical and emotional state.

The most important sources of harmful positive ions are:

        - computer monitors
        - TV sets and radio receivers
        - electric heaters
        - dryers, vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens, etc.
        - tobacco smoke

     Scientific research has proven that the amount of ions in the environment, acceptable by the human, is ca. 1000 - 1500/cm3. In closed rooms where a few people work at the same time the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm3. The positive effect of negative ions can be experienced on a visit to the Wieliczka Salt Mine, by the sea, or walking right after a storm. Now you know how important it is to make sure that the harmful effect of electric smog is reduced to a minimum in the rooms where we work.

     The cheapest and the simplest method of fighting against electric smog is to air rooms regularly, particularly those in which a few people stay together for some time, in which there are many electric machines, or where cigarettes are smoked. You can also use air ionizers, but these are quite expensive. To help you remove electric smog, we offer a SALT LAMP. Made of a salt crystal, it is a natural air ionizer that effectively boosts the number of negative ions in the room. The effect of air ionization by salt originates from physical and chemical properties of salt discovered many years ago. In salt lamps the ionization effect is additionally enhanced by heating the salt crystal with a bulb installed inside the lamp. As a result, the lamp improves the quality of our environment, and thus our well-being.

     In addition, crystal salt helps much to cure many diseases. Bioenergotherapists and homeopaths in Western Europe have recommended crystal salt lamps for a long time to support treatment of allergies, respiratory system and blood system diseases. They are often used in the treatment of rheumatism. Due to its beautiful and rich colors, salt lamps are also used in the color therapy, i.e. chromotherapy. Their soothing light helps neurotic persons and people suffering from insomnia. The lamps have also been appreciated by Feng Shui art connoisseurs.

The curing properties of salt was proven by the fact that salt miners much more rarely suffer from respiratory system diseases. Long-term scientific research on the effect of salt mine microclimate on human health have resulted in establishing an underground sanatorium in the Wieliczka Salt Mine. This place has earned great appreciation of people suffering from respiratory system diseases. Now you can also have a 'micro salt mine' at your home.

Our lamps are made of a salt crystal excavated from the depth of 600 m, which evolved in consequence of natural geologic processes many millions years ago. The lamps are hand made, taking great care of the natural crystal beauty.

Surrounded by artificial products of the civilization, we all need a unique
product, a natural salt lamp.

Choose a salt lamp to accommodate the size of a room for which it is intended.

     The amount of negative ions emitted by salt lamps depends on their size. If you don't know which lamp to choose please use the table below.

2 - 3 kg lamp is recommended for 10 m2 surface area premises 10 m2
3 - 5 kg lamp is recommended for 12 m2 surface area premises 12 m2
5 - 7 kg lamp is recommended for 15 m2 surface area premises 15 m2 
7 - 9 kg lamp is recommended for 18 m2 surface area premises 18 m2
9 - 13 kg lamp is recommended for 20 m2 surface area premises 20 m2
13 - 17 kg lamp is recommended for 25 m2 surface area premises 25 m2
18 - 25 kg lamp is recommended for 30 m2 surface area premises 30 m2

Naturally, the larger the lamp or the more lamps in one room the larger accumulation of negative ions in it.
