About salt lamps and their effects on our health
Rock salt replenishes negative ions in the air, which are reduced through industrial emissions, exhaust gases or cigarette smoke. By their reduction, the ratio of positive, negative and neutral particles becomes unbalanced and one feels more and more physically tired. That is why it is important to add a lot of these negative ions. Lamps made of rock salt can effectively improve the quality of air; adding freshness to it which tranquillizes us.
Salt lamps are made of crystals of rock salt, which contain other additives, primarily iron oxides. These additives add special orange or red color to the salt. The salt rock is mined in salt mines in depths of around 1000 meters. The lamps of salt crystals carry the history of Earth in them. The rock salt of these lamps comes from the Paleozoic period and is thus roughly 250 million years old.
