Salt may be salt, but not all salt is the same.
So Well® Fair Trade Gourmet Himalayan salt is rich with 84 minerals and is easily absorbed by the body. Other salts? Not so much! It is important to understand the differences and how Himalayan salt can help you.
Wondering About the Benefits of Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan salt is profoundly amazing. It is 200 million plus years old and has been nurtured by earth energy and pressure over this time.
This ancient sea salt has been alchemized over millions of years into a special energized crystalline form in a process analogous to how coal gradually becomes a diamond. The 84 minerals in this salt are in an ionic form which is molecular instead of colloidal like regular sea salt. It is therefore more easily absorbable and much more use-able by our bodies than any sea salt.
“The researchers reported that neg-ions without any other treatment (that is, no drugs) seemed to cure attacks of asthma and bronchitis more quickly than drugs, antibiotics included… children treated with neg-ions were less prone to ‘rebound attacks’ (relapses)… the scientific report said that the tests ‘demonstrated that atmospheric ions have an effect on infants, especially those suffering from asthmatic bronchitis. Less scientifically, they found that the babies didn’t cry as often and as loudly as they did in normal air.”The Ion Effect, by Fred Soyka, p. 57, 1991.
What Health Benefits do So Well® Salt Lamps Provide?
Beneficial to our health.
So Well Himalayan Salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract moisture… humidity… airborne water molecules; it is a natural property of sodium chloride (hygroscopy). Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. In more humid regions, an unlit salt lamp will eventually “cry,” even creating puddles of water at its base. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health.
Reduce electromagnetic radiation
Since we are constantly surrounded by modern day wi-fi, cell phone towers, TVs and other electrical appliances, these things give off a lot of electromagnetic Radiation or EMFS for short. These EMF’s high in positive ions have been known to reduce our serotonin levels and can cause cancer, fatigue, lathery and a host of problems we face today. Salt crystal lamps since they have the ability to generate negative ions neutralize these EMF’s.
Locate one near your bed, computer, digital TV, and wireless modem for starters to harmonize and neutralize all forms of harmful energy throughout your home.
Color and Light Therapy
Increased relaxation. Less stress.
Numerous customers have purchased our salt lamps as a beautiful light source “they can be sold as living energy sources which emit a healthy glow, ranging in color light-waves of oranges, yellows, reds and apricot. The ambient light creates a soothing ambiance that helps with relaxation, stress, attention deficit, autism, sleep and more.
Physicians and other practitioners in the exploding field of complementary medicine use our lamps for Color Therapy (chromotherapy), a well-documented alternative method of diagnosing and treating various illnesses. They seek to balance a person’s “energy,” wherever it is lacking (physical, spiritual, emotional or mental).
Countless Ayurvedic and Energy medical professionals have found color therapy to be useful in positively influencing our mood, mental state, and energy level.
Clearing spaces of negative energy.
Our lamps are hand-carved from Himalayan salt that is 250 million years old and has a very high energetic quality, similar to any other crystal. Salt is excellent for clearing spaces of negative energy and can be used everywhere in the house and work environment to enhance the Feng Shui
Good Vibrations & Clearing Energy
A balanced home is a healthy home.
Salt has been used throughout the ages to clean energies from homes and people. You can use Salt to clear crystals, clear your body and clear your home.
Because salt crystals vibrate at a frequency closer to the earth’s magnetic frequency known as the Schumann Resonance Frequency they can also help bring us back in balance. The more-healthy, living, ionizing objects like plants & salt crystals in your home, the better you will feel.
Do Negative Ions Really Work?
Nature is constantly producing negative ions to combat the pollution in the air. This is why the air feels so refreshing after a storm: lightening produces a high concentration of negative ions, which purifies the air and makes it so invigorating.
Water from a cascading waterfall also produces negative ions as the water thunders against the pool below, causing both friction and evaporation (both energy sources). For the same reason, the enormous amounts of negative ions in the pure air at the seashore is caused by the constant rise and fall of the tides.
In 1966, a hospital in Jerusalem conducted a study of thirty-eight infants suffering from respiratory problems. They cared for half of the infants in a ward without any ion change, and cared for the other half in a ward where a negative-ion generator was in use.

World renowned Dr. Albert P Krueger, microbiologist and experimental pathologist, “worked with bacteria of the kind that float in the air and spread diseases “mostly colds, influenza, and other respiratory ills “and found that an astonishingly small quantity of neg-ions could kill them and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.” The Ion Effect, by Fred Soyka, p. 57, 1991.
