This beautiful moon lamp is made of salt from the Himalayas. It gives a beautiful atmospheric light, but also contributes to good air quality in the house.
When the salt is heated by the lamp, it will emit negative ions, which ensures better air quality in the room.
Ions are electrically charged molecules or atoms. Enriching the air with negative ions has a positive effect on health. For comparison: do you know that wonderful feeling during a walk in the woods? The feeling that you can breathe much more freely and deeply? This is because in the forest or at a waterfall about 50,000 negative oxygen ions per cm³ are present in the air. In the mountains or by the sea there are about 5000 per cm³, along the road there are only 100-200 per cm³ and in the house only 40-50 negative ions per cm³. It is also not a bad idea to put a nice salt lamp on your desk in the office, because the least number of negative ions can be found in an office space with air conditioning. These are only 0-25 per cm³.
Some advantages of enriching the air with negative ions are:
- Be able to breathe more freely
- fewer fatigue complaints
- less headaches
- It promotes the functioning of all organs, digestion and increases metabolism, because breathing ionized air ensures a higher concentration of oxygen in the blood
Positive ions in the air are caused by house dust, electrical equipment and electrical radiation from, for example, mobile phones, computers and wireless modems. Too many positive ions in the air can cause you to feel unwell. You could then experience complaints such as: headache, fatigue, a dry throat, a stuffy nose, a flu-like feeling and insomnia. You may also experience more feelings of stress, nervousness, irritability and even depression due to an excess of positive ions. By increasing the negative ions in a room, your resistance will increase, you will feel more rested and fitter and your ability to concentrate will improve. Negative ions promote the joy of life, so you will feel a lot more cheerful.
The negative ions that the salt lamp disperses can also remove dust from the air that causes allergies. Because the negative ions clump together and therefore become heavier, they descend and take down the dust particles that bacteria, germs and viruses carry. When vacuuming and mopping, you then clean up all the particles. Pollen, fungi and pollution from tobacco smoke are also falling. The lamp therefore has a positive effect on people with allergies, asthma, bronchitis and COPD.
The salt lamp only emits negative ions when it is heated by the lamp. It is therefore best to turn it on as much as possible, because an excess of negative ions can do no harm.
The lamp comes standard with an incandescent lamp. Because it gets hot, the lamp will spread negative ions. The lamp does not have this effect if you use the Himalayan salt lamp with an LED lamp. But the lamp still has an air-purifying function, because it attracts moisture molecules. The moisture molecules carry dust particles, dirt, pollen, fungi and pollution from tobacco smoke. The advice is therefore to wipe the lamp regularly with a soft cloth.
