Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps
Many of us live and work in surroundings dominated by technology such as computers, televisions, microwave ovens, mobile phones, photocopiers, printers, air conditioners, just to name a few. However, we often do not realise that they are a source of harmful positive ions, which deteriorate the quality of air that we breathe and which can result in mental, physical and emotional exhaustion and effect overall wellness.
Himalayan crystal salt lamps are natural air ionisers which boost the number of negative ions in the room, acting against the unhealthy build up of positive ions which are produced by such appliances. Tobacco smoke and many other by-products are also eliminated through use of this Himalayan salt lamp.
Himalayan salt can also help to cure many diseases and for a long time crystal salt lamps have been recommended by bioenergotherapists and homeopaths in Western Europe to support the treatment of allergies, respiratory and blood system and rheumatism. Himalayan salt lamps are also used in colour therapy and feng shui and have proven success helping with various physical, mental, allergic and asthmatic conditions.
The Himalayan Salt lamp helps neutralise the positive ions and electromagnetic field frequencies. Therefore, our human energy field becomes balanced through the harmonising energy vibration of the crystal. This can help with relaxation, strengthening the immune system, the heart, the adrenals, the thyroid, to mention just a few.
Air saturated with negative ions has a highly beneficial effect on our health. The vibrations of all our body cells are harmonised thus helping to improve the functions of our body.

Caring for your So Natural Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp
Salt has hygroscopic properties, (it draws water to itself), and should not therefore be washed in water nor be placed in a damp environment. Simply wipe over with a damp cloth or use a light bristled brush to remove dust particles.
If you choose to place a Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamp on a wooden surface, please ensure that it has a waterproof base so that you do not damage your furniture.
Replacement bulbs can easily be fitted by simply withdrawing the holder from the wooden base. These are Pygmy screw fit bulbs (15W or 25W) and are available at most DIY stores.
