A Beautiful Way to Breathe
We so often want the experience of walking on the beach, the fresh ocean breeze stimulating yet relaxing us simultaneously, yet we are in a walled-off living space such as an office or a home. Now with So Well’s Amber Globe Salt Light, we can experience that same feeling of calmness and clarity, wherever we are. The natural elements in all our salt lights oxygenate our air, stimulating us and recreating an outdoor environment.
Each salt light is hand-carved at the base of the Himalayan Mountains by our team of skilled artisans from pure, untouched solid salt crystal that has lay there for millions of years. When we breathe in the air, we are literally breathing in the ions from a time before humanity walked the earth. All So Well products represent the highest standard in fair trade agreements, thus you can rest assured that you are bettering the lives of the artists while improving your own life as well.
The globe is a divine form, representing a point of unity. It’s center most point is equidistant from all surface points. Elegant yet simple, this sphere will ground you while providing an aesthetically pleasing form. Let the ionized air released by our Amber Globe Salt Light transform your living space or office. Each globe comes with a wooden base and is available in Amber, White, and Grey.
** Our box comes complete with UL-tested dimmer cord, a 15-watt light bulb, and care instructions. Fully backed by our 90-day Satisfaction Guarantee.

All So Well’s Salt Lights are available in your choice of many colors: white to give you a radiant boost of healing energy, amber to soothe and focus your mind, or grey for a dim light that is perfect for calming the mind for a deeper, more restful sleep. Regardless, all So Well’s salt lights will release the negative ions that are sure to provide lasting benefits for years to come.
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.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST? DO THEY EVER STOP WORKING?
All our Salt Lights last indefinitely (after all, they are already millions of years old). They will never lose their ability to generate negative ions or help mitigate EMFs (electromagnetic fields).
ARE THE LIGHTS ON YOUR SITE WHAT I WILL GET?
Each fair trade salt light is original with its own distinctive organic shape and color. So Well lights are beautifully crafted with a very specific “shaping” (no lopsided, dirty rocks as most companies sell) and handpicked for you. The images on our website are So Well lights, but yours will be similar yet different. Please specify a shape preference (rounder, more pyramidal, squarer etc.).
SHOULD I KEEP MY SALT LIGHT ON ALL THE TIME?
To get the best effect, keeping the light on as long as possible is recommended. Leaving any electrical unit unattended is not advised.
WHAT KIND OF BULB DOES THE LIGHT NEED? WILL IT RAISE MY ELECTRICAL BILL?
The relaxing, organic soothing glow and striking shapes of our Salt lights make these natural works of art that work wonders for your health, and require only replacement 15-watt bulbs to keep their power and beauty for a lifetime. Making them as affordable as they are attractive and functional. The 15 watt bulb is so energy efficient compared to the manmade machines which can be harmful and require increased energy. The standard 15 watts bulb is very energy efficient considering you would only need one-two lights as a night light for a large room.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NATURAL SHAPED LIGHTS AND THE SHAPED LIGHTS AS FAR AS ENERGY AND NEGATIVE IONS?
We provide products that bring out the inherent beauty and wellness aspect of the natural materials they are created from. If your interior does not lend itself to our more roughhewn shapes, we do offer gently smoothed lights that fit nicely into a more polished interior space. We do not promote the machining of “novelty” artificial forms or objects completely unrelated to the ancient crystals they are created from. In our minds, too much manipulation with modern tools negates the beneficial properties of the lights themselves, as well as, destroying their aesthetic quality. We choose our lights by their quality, beauty, integrity and responsibility. We work only with the best manufacturers.
WILL THE LIGHT BE TOO BRIGHT TO SLEEP WITH?
Every Salt Light comes with a UL tested Dimmer cord so the brightness can be adjusted to your desired light shine.
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.
