Salt Lamps

Himalayan natural shaped pink salt lampAll-natural and exquisite, Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions which are of importance to good respiratory health and general wellness as they detoxify the oxygen we breathe in. By releasing negative ions, salt lamps decrease indoor air toxins including mould spores, dust and dust mites, smoke or smog and basic odour from animals and people. An increased amount of negative ions in the environment may provide reduced sinus pain and congestion, temporary allergies and hay fever,  decrease the seriousness of asthma symptoms, and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu by boosting the immune and respiratory system.

How does Salt Therapy work?

The microclimate environment in the salt cave is ionized and saturated with a natural substance of a low concentration of highly dispersed aerosol of dry saline (salt). It is formed naturally through the convective diffusion (the transfer of particles in the atmosphere) from the salt walls, and combined with the controlled temperature and humidity to simulate that of the cave which creates a hypo-bacterial and allergen-free air environment. As the salt is inhaled while sitting it the room, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria.

What is the history or salt therapy?

The benefits of salt therapy (also known as spelotherapy or halotherapy) were first noted in a book published by Polish doctor Felix Boczkowski in 1843. Dr Boczkowski was a physician at the Polish Salt Mine in Wieliczka. He wrote that the miners had much lower incidences of respiratory conditions while working in the salt mines.

During WWII, residents of a German city in Ennepetal were using Klutert Cave as a bomb shelter. Amazingly, they found that they were coughing less and breathing easier with each air raid. Later on, it was confirmed by scientists that many of those using the cave as a bomb shelter were cured of their asthma, chronic bronchitis and other diseases
of the respiratory tract.
