Salt Lamp Ion Generators

Salt Lamp Ion Generators

An environment rich in negative ions has a wonderfully positive effect on your physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual health.

The feeling generated by negative ions is one you find at the ocean, or in the high you experience in the midst of a big storm, or near a big waterfall. Positive ions, on the other hand, called pos-ions, are overwhelming in our polluted cities and buildings made of synthetic materials.

Humans respond most positively to a ratio of 2 negative ions to 1 positive ion, but such a ratio is rare at best. Yosemite Falls has a negative ion count of over 100,000 per cubic centimeter. Fresh, country air has a negative ion count of around 2,000 to 4,000 per cubic centimeter. Los Angeles during rush hour has a negative ion count of around 100 per cubic centimeter.

Here is a simple, natural way to increase the negative ions in your home.

Crystalline salt is a natural air ionizer that boosts the negative ions in the air. Tests show that lit salt crystal lamps improve the ration of negative ions to our environment. The heated salt crystal pulls water molecules from the air to its surface, the salt goes into the solution of the water, neutralizes any positive ions (and the attached pollution), and emits the neutralized molecule back into the environment.

Most common negative-ion generators incorporate electrostatic technology to produce ions. But many think they stop working after two or three months because the fine-tipped metallic needles become blunted and stop working.

Salt lamps cost around $96. Here are four resources:

I bought two small salt lamps for my bf's dad last XMas, he loves them! And I'm planning to buy one for myself sometime.

Salt lamps do not generate or emit negative ions, actually. This is a common myth, although salt lamps and salt crystal in general definitely make indoor air naturally better and heathier. A very good article I found about the reality of how a salt lamp works can be found at

My Grandmother believed in salt and the healing it provided to cuts, dental, sore throats. I have always had sinus problems until I purchased a Salt Lamp.....on every night and I have not had a problem with sinuses since.

Mandy, I believe the salt comes directly from the foothills of the Himalayan mountains in Pakistan is mined in large amounts from Government and Privately Contracted mines. A great Salt Lamp Blog which highlights a lot of this information can be found at Salt Lamp Safari. Cheers.

Mandy, I believe the himalayan salt crystals come from the foothills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. All the pieces are mined directly from Private or Government Contracted mines. A great blog I came across which talks a lot of the origin of salt lamps is Salt Lamp Safari.

To contribute adequate amounts of negative ions to the air, how many/how long beeswax candles should be lit?
