Lamps are help­ing to clear the air at home

Whitsunday Times - - LOOK GOOD FEEL GOOD -

CRYS­TAL SALT lamps are be­com­ing a very pop­u­lar way to im­prove the qual­ity of air in your home or of­fice.

The lamps are made from rock salt with a 15 watt bulb in­side.

The bulb stays on, heat­ing the lamp, caus­ing a fine film of saline to evap­o­rate into the air

This re­leases neg­a­tively charged ions into the at­mos­phere, which are said to cre­ate pos­i­tive mood and high en­ergy, and help us feel calmer, alert and en­er­gized.

In the trop­ics, keep the light on most of the time, as con­stant heat is re­quired dur­ing pe­ri­ods of high hu­mid­ity to re­lease the salt which omits the ions. The 15 watt bulb con­sumes very lit­tle power, and they make an at­trac­tive light.

Good­ness Gra­cious Health Food Shop owner Helen Pike said salt lamps were a nat­u­ral way of im­prov­ing the air in­doors, and they helped de­crease air­borne bac­te­ria, mould and many other sub­stances that trig­ger al­ler­gies or other ail­ments.

“It slowly emits salt into the air, and salt is a nat­u­ral purifier,” she said, “and they are a non-ob­tru­sive night light.” Ms Pike has a va­ri­ety of lamps at her Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre store. She plans on open­ing a crys­tal room in the near fu­ture.
