What are Himalayan Salt Lamps?
The Himalayan salt lamp generally consist of a salt rock; that is either carved into a natural cut lamp or into a contemporary design. A small bulb is inserted into the core of the salt rock that gently warms up the lamp. This unique combination of salt & warmth provided by the light source in the salt lamps results in the release of negative ions. The Salt is hygroscopic in nature, this means that it attracts moisture from it’s surrounding and this water evaporates quickly due to the warmth emitted from the bulb (this characteristics of the salt lamp also explains why it sweats and appear wet in humid climates). The negative ions are generated and released during the evaporation process.

What are Ions? And how do they work?
A quick lesson of science 101; An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge. Negative ions occur more often in nature and they are often created by things like lightening, waterfalls, sunlight, and waves at the beach. Recall how refreshed and recharged you felt the last time you were at the beach or took a walk during sunrise; The Himalayan Salt lamps mimic this feeling and help mitigate the impact positive ions. Now that we know what negative ions are and the impact they have on a person's well being it's important to understand what positive are as well.
Positive ions are created by electronic devices like laptops, tablets, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners and can often increase medical conditions like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air. To keep it simple you can say that it's a natural air purifier that cleans and deodorizes the air around you.
