The negative ions are generated by a continuous interplay of water attraction and evaporation. The salt crystal lamp attracts water molecules from the surrounding air to its warm surface. The water and salt form a solution. In the process of evaporation of the solution, due to the heat of the lamp, negatively charged ions are created. Both positive and negative ions are created but much more negative ions than positive ions are created, therefore providing a surplus of negative ions. Natrium [another word for sodium] is positively charged. This unique ion emission interplay ability with water is because of salt’s neutral atomic structure.
The Negative Ions in the rock salt crystals clears our the bronchial passages therefore ridding of bacteria and microbes. Himalayan salt crystal lamps are known to be natural Negative Ion generators. Himalayan Salt crystals lamps are naturally known to attract moisture (Hygroscopic). Because it attracts moisture the Himalayan salt lamp benefits are enormous as it aids in the relief of hay fever, sinus related symptoms, asthma as well as allergies.
André Stock, a Swiss citizen and a world traveler, commended Himalayan salt lamps, which he first acquired on a trip to Pakistan, in 1993. “My house in Switzerland contains two to three salt lamps of different colors per room. I purchased them at first as an aesthetic addition to our household, then I found a few articles online suggesting benefits and well-being powers.”

“The amount of time we spend in front of a screen or holding a phone can generate a lot of positive ions, enough to disrupt our emotional state,” says Michael Terman, professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia University’s Medical Center. Terman explained that equalizing these ions with negative ones enhances the mood and eliminates the stressors that can trigger depressive disorders, irritability, and insomnia.
