Salt lamps are essentially large pieces of pure Himalayan Salt with a small light-bulb inside. They are usually solid pieces of salt, but can be made of different shapes and smaller chunks. They offer a nice warm glow when lit and may be beneficial for indoor air quality.

Places like waterfalls and beaches where negative ions are produced naturally have been shown to have a negative ion concentration of up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter whereas busy cities can have negative ion levels as low as 100 ions per cubic centimeter. Salt lamps create negative ions as well, but not in massive quantities – getting some fresh air into your rooms is a cheap (free!) and efficient way of ensuring the negative ion levels are kept that much higher. However, long term use of salt lamps have other benefits.

Salt lamps give a beautiful warm orange glow, similar to the light from a campfire, or candlelight. This makes them a beautiful light source for the evening and can even be used as a night light without negatively affecting sleep.

These soothing lamps may also help boost mood and energy levels, Particularly for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). The soft orange hues are one of the soothing colours often used to calm mood and increase focus.

If more negative ions are specifically what you are after, go for a negative ion generator, also available in this category.
