These wonderful products actually cleanse the air that we breathe via the same basic process as those widely advertised synthetic ionizing machines. The difference is that these products look much better and cost much less. In a nutshell, when the salt is heated from a bulb or flame, it releases negative ions into the air. Most pollutants and allergens are positively charged ions. When the negative ions created by the salt enter the air, they bond with the positively charged ions of the pollutants and allergens, thereby neutralizing them.
The bonding of these negative and positive ions also cause the harmful air particles to become heavier and drop to the ground removing them from the air circulation, which cleans the breathable air in the home. These negative ions from the heated salt lamps and candle holders also neutralize the deleterious effects of electronic devices in the home. These lamps and candle holders have also been shown to help people with asthma, allergies, and a host of other diseases.
This 6-8 lb. Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp is a common first purchase. It is still on the small side, but big enough for sufficient ionization of a small bedroom. It allows you the luxury of significant ionization at a low price. Those who wish to start their ionization process in their bedroom typically look for this lamp. From our experiences, the people who start out this way usually enjoy the lamp and decide to furnish additional rooms in the home.
