YOU HEAR THE BENEFIT OF “NEGATIVE IONS” A LOT WHEN IT COMES TO SALT LIGHTS BUT YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF WHAT NEGATIVE IONS ARE. HOW DOES THE SALT LIGHT WORK TO RELEASE THESE NEGATIVE IONS?
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. But that’s not all. Not only do negative ions help our mood, they are also natural air purifiers.
Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that a small quantity of negative ions can kill bacteria and quickly remove them from the air thereby reducing the chance of infection. So Well Himalayan Salt Lights are an excellent source of negative ions. If you suffer from asthma, allergies, or immunity problems, our salt lights can give your entire system a boost. Himalayan salt is even strong enough to reduce mold, fungus, and other bacteria from your air, so that you can breathe – and rest – easy. By creating a balance of ions in the air, they stimulate natural drive and healthy energy.
Sounds great right? But how exactly is the Salt Light releasing these negative ions? The emission of ions is primarily caused by the alternating actions of the salt’s ability to first absorb water, and then evaporate it. When a light warms, it attracts water molecules from the air to its surface. Negative ions build up and are then released. Negatively charged negative ions help cleanse the air because they attach themselves to contaminates and allergens, which are positively charged. The larger particles formed by this interaction then fall to the ground, and out of the air we’re breathing. The ions cleanse the air of harmful dust, electro smog, bacteria and other toxins. As a result, the salt crystal light improves air quality and your body’s health.
WHILE LIVING IN A WORLD THAT IS ADVANCED IN TECHNOLOGY MAY BE CONVENIENT AND EXPANSIVE, IT MAY ALSO BE HARMING US WITH UNHEALTHY EMFS (ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS). SO WELL SALT LIGHTS CAN HELP MITIGATE THESE EMFS.
One of the issues nearly everyone faces today is exposure to EMFs, or electromagnetic fields. Actually, electromagnetic fields are essential to life on earth. An electromagnetic belt surrounds the Earth. Every form of life depends on this electromagnetic field of vibration, known as the Schuman resonance frequency. The Schuman resonance frequency states that the average resonance frequency of this belt—the resonance frequency of the earth—is 7.83 Hz (cycles) per second, which can be measured via EEG in the human brain.
The EMF of a typical television or computer monitor, however, is approximately 100-160Hz. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness, insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system.
Crystal salt, in its neutral state, exhibits an exact frequency oscillation value of 8-10 cycles per second. The lit salt light therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
What is the big deal about Fair Trade? We actually get this question a lot! If you look up the definition of Fair Trade, you will find results similar to a social movement whose stated goal is to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions and to promote sustainability. But to us Fair Trade is that and so much more!
Our long time relationship with our family of artisans in Pakistan operate under strict standards including no child labor, employee rights, full time benefits and fair wages. We do not supply big box stores and only work with customers who value high quality, uniqueness and Fair Trade. Our collections of Salt Lights are rare and the colors are beautiful, deep and rich in minerals. The finished lights are symmetrical, unlike many other vendors, and finished with high quality screws and dark hardwood bases.
Fair Trade ensures that producers receive fair market prices, are free from labor abuses and use sustainable growing and production methods. In a world where corporate profits rule these crafters and farmers are often exploited, creating a cycle of poverty and environmental degradation. Fair Trade can break that cycle, creating better lives, stronger communities and a healthier environment. We are dedicated to Fair Trade, and use suppliers dedicated to Fair Trade and sustainability. We partner with our artisans’ communities, promoting social justice, small businesses and local non-profit organizations.
Sustainable: Our ingredients are harvested sustainably and we use 100% reusable, recyclable and eco-friendly packaging.
Global: We work with global producers to harvest the freshest ingredients following Fair Trade and sustainability practices for all of our salt rock crystal lights and products.
