Our 100% Pure Pink Himalayan Salt Crystal Products are natural ion generators. What that means is, when heated they emit negative ions into the atmosphere. Why is this a good thing? Negative ions are good for you!

Negative ions restore and neutralize air quality. Our homes and offices are filled with electrical appliances and gadgets (televisions, computers, florescent lighting, microwaves, heaters, air-conditioners, etc…which emit Positive Ions) ie. Electromagnetic Smog! Use of such devices and low Negative Ion count in our oxygen intake are partly responsible for lowering our energy levels, making us feel tired, irritable, and even depressed.

Keeping a Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp in areas where positive ions are polluting your air space will help neutralize the air you breathe. Taking a 30 minute detox bath once per week will help draw out toxins & excess water. Balancing positive and negative ions can also help reduce airborne infections, anxiety, and help the mind aiding in calmness & focus.

One quick example of highly present negative ion count in the air would be just after a downpour, taking a hike through the forest...that dewey smell is super-concentrated oxygen per cubic centimeter of air...i.e. thousands of negative ions. Ever stop to wonder why it is you can't help but take deep breath after deep breath? It's because you're body is so excited to intake the ion dense oxygen per breath.

In contrast, during rush hour in any city the negative ion count is very low, perhaps only 10-50 ions per cubic centimeter of air which leads to irritability, anxiety, aggression, inability to focus and depression. Why is this happening in the city? ...Car exhaust, fewer trees, higher population and more electromagnetic smog. We need oxygen to live!
