Salt lamps work by releasing negative ions in the air which is believed to aid in killing bacteria, purifying the air, reducing radiation and increasing wellbeing. When the bulb inside the lamp heats, the salt releases negative ions which are believed to counteract positive pollutants in the air. Salt lamps have been associated with reducing symptoms of asthma, sinus and allergies.
Aside from the positive effects believed to result in the use of salt lamps, the lamps are a great source of ambient light. With their pinkish amber glow, they bring a warmth to any space. The addition of the mosaic casing housing smaller pieces of salt not only helps to keep the “mess” of the salt encased, but also adds a nice decorative touch.
Perfect for use in bedrooms where the hue of light produced can also aid in sleep, and perfect as a gift.
