Healing Benefits of Crystal Salt Lamps

by Colleen The Crystal Dragon

Breathing clean air is not only essential to keep us alive, it helps us to sleep better, thus improving our alertness during our waking hours.

The air that we breathe consists of electrically charged particles – positive, negative and neutrally charged particles.

A negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen, whereas a positive ion is a molecule that has lost its electrons through air and electric pollution.

Air quality depends on the kind of electrical charge and concentration of the ions within the air.

Tip! Always check before making an elixir with any Crystal

Positive ions cause deterioration of the air quality and can negatively affect both our physical and emotional wellbeing, causing fatigue, migraines, respiratory tract ailments, as well as general lethargy and depression.

Tip!Crystal HealingProperties vary from Crystal to Crystal

Today’s lifestyle leaves us open to additional sources of positive ions , more so than in the past, which creates an electrical imbalance within the air.

The many sources of harmful positive ions are :

Microwave ovens

TV sets


Vacuum cleaners

Electric heaters

Car exhaust fumes

Cigarette fumes

Computer monitors

As you can see, these sources of positive ions are ones that many of us are exposed to on a daily basis and continuously deteriorate the air quality around us.

Air ionisers are available to increase the number of negative ions in the environment, and these work by generating the negative ions needed, and help to balance the atmosphere of the room. Ionising the air causes airborne allergens to cluster and fall . Negative ions give the air its invigorating freshness . This type of freshness is evident right after a storm.

Wherever negative ions are found, whether they are naturally occurring or produced artificially, they have been shown to produce amazing results.

Salt crystal lamps are natural air ionisers, which effectively boost the number of negative ions in the room.

Salt crystal lamps are used in the treatment of allergies, respiratory problems, , neuralgia, rheumatism, hypertension, migraine headaches, asthma, kidney and liver conditions, depression, insomnia and anxiety.

The ionization effect of salt crystal lamps is effectively enhanced by the heat produced by the bulb, which gently heats the salt crystal.

In conclusion, salt crystal lamps are a fantastic way to improve the air quality of our living and working environments, and thus improve our physical and emotional wellbeing.
