What are Salt Crystal Lamps?

They are natural ion generators that emit negative ions into the atmosphere. Why does that matter? Negative ions have a number of health benefits – restoring and neutralizing air quality is at the top of the list.

How do they work?

You may have seen big chunks of rock salt in your friend’s or neighbor’s home, and we’re not talking about in the salt shaker! We’re talking salt crystals the size of lamps that heat up and attract moisture. As the water evaporates through the salt, negative ions are emitted into the air.
