The heat from a lighted salt lamp attracts moisture that is in the air, within this moisture lives viruses, bacteria and moulds. The evaporation of water through salt emits negative ions. How many negative ions a salt lamp or salt candle holder can release depends on its size and how warm a match-lit candle or electric light bulb makes it. Nature produces negative ions to combat air pollution and deodorise. They attract the harmful particles, which are positively charged (Wi-Fi-TV-pollutants) and they balance and neutralize them, so that they lose their damaging characteristics.
In order to breathe in fresh and pure air and protect our health, we want to be surrounded by negative ions. Negative ions stimulate the flow of oxygen to the brain and in this way increase our mental alertness and energy. Think of the air after a storm or the freshness of a waterfall or where the sea meets the land or the mountain meets the air. Salt crystal lamps are natural ion generators, emitting negative ions into the atmosphere.
Why is this a good thing?
Negative ions are good for you! Negative ions restore and neutralize air quality. Negative ions can be used to treat illness and improve health. Our homes and offices are filled with electrical appliances and electronics (televisions, computers, florescent lighting, microwaves, heaters, air-conditioners, etc.).
Use of such devices have been blamed for lowering our energy levels, making us feel tired, cranky, and depressed because of their emissions of positive ions. Keeping a rock salt lamp in areas where positive ions are polluting your air space will help neutralize the air you breathe. Balancing positive and negative ions also help reduce airborne infections.

How Many Salt Lamps Should I have?
Like plants, the more Salt lamps you can have in your home and office, the better. Start with at least one or two per room and keep adding. Salt lamps are an investment in your health. They last forever, are energy efficient and will change the air quality, your health and energy in every room of your house & office. A night-light sized salt lamp would be effective for a nursery. Naturally, the larger an area means a larger lamp is needed so that more negative ions will be emitted. Choosing your lamp is a personal thing as they are all different shapes and colours.
