-Ridding of Extra Humidity


Salt, due to its hygroscopic nature, can attract water. Although, in salt lamps, the evaporation of the water is rapid due to the amount of heat than light emits. Science has proved that there are billions of organisms in the air we breathe. Numerous times, you have been exposed to these bacteria or allergens without even knowing. By attracting moisture in the air, these bacteria and allergens present in the air are removed. When the water vapor evaporates, it generates negative ions. 

-The Goodness of Negative Ions

negative ions cleanses the air in your home

The issue of whether these lamps produce negative ions has been waging for so long. Well, the answer is yes! Naturally, to get exposure to negative ions (which helps to purify oxygen in the air), you have to be outside, especially around large bodies of water. With these lamps, you do not have to walk all the way to get negative ions. Why should you? These lamps generate small amounts of negative ions, which helps cleanse the air in your home while giving you a soothing glow that many find relaxing. 

The conclusion 

I bet you feel better now. Knowing loads of benefits, you will be more confident in using SALT LAMPS. Now that you know about chromo therapy and the benefits of colors, you should know that there is a wide range of these lamps in the market that will significantly benefit your home. Although these lamps do not take the place of quality air filters, their affordability makes them super sweet. Your kids would need a sleep-friendly light.  

Ultimately, your choice of a lamp will depend on your personality and your home setting. You must, however, note that you are not going to fix all your health problems by just sitting beside a lamp all day. However, if you feel you need more energy and positivity around your home, then a salt lamp would be a great choice.
