Salt Crystal Lamps - Information
Every lamp is an original! The fascination of the salt crystals is based in the various shades and individual forms of the crystals. The lamps are produced mostly by handicraft. No chemical additives are used.
The magnifying atmosphere of a salt crystal lamp is not only due to the warm light. Salt crystals emit neutralizing ions, thus improving the climate of a room. When illuminated, this effect is supplemented by vibrations of light. Different institutes are conducting scientific studies in this field.
A salt crystal lamp will enhance the atmosphere of any room. You will be fascinated by the natural light and the uniqueness of your new lamp. The small crystal lamps weigh between 2-3.5kg, the larger lamps weigh 15-20kg. Each lamp makes a statement of its own. All of the lamps include a solid wood base.

The benefit of ionizers is well known. While most ionizers on the market are man made machines, the salt crystal lamp is a beautiful alternative of mother nature, without any noise and NO harmful OZONE!
Europeans have been aware of the HEALTH BENEFITS of salt for generations, and people suffering from chronic congestive problems go to clinics located in salt mines for treatment! It's called SPELEOTHERAPY. The very dry, negative ion-rich environment of these salt mines helps to clear out the patients' bronchial tubes and sinuses, and kills bacteria and other microbes.
Perhaps you have noticed that your feeling of well being is intensified in pure mountain air, at the seashore, or after a thunderstorm. This is due to the higher concentration of negative ions in these surroundings. t is no coincidence that healing spas are, as a rule, located in areas with foaming salt water or roaring mountain springs which generate plentiful negative ions. They also cause air particles to achieve electrical or ionic balance.
How and where can I use a Salt Crystal Lamp?
On a night table next to where you sleep.
On your desk, close to your computer.
In your child's bedroom.
In your living room, close to where you spend time in the evenings.
In your meditation or reading room.
In your bathroom or powder room.
Salt Crystal Lamps make wonderful gifts. Besides being beautiful to look at, they are enriching to your environment. They provide the same ion-rich condition found at the seashore or close to a mountain spring.
What an AMAZING gift that gives so much by just sitting in your home.
Salt Lamp Care
Salt has hygroscopic properties, which means that it draws water from the surrounding atmosphere. Salt Crystal Lamps should therefore never be sprinkled with water, kept in a moist room or be placed outdoors. Sometimes, in particularly moist or humid conditions, the lamp surface may be slightly damp to the touch. Lighting it for a few hours dries it very quickly. If crystallization occurs, just wiping with a damp cloth will get rid of it. For most everyday situations, this is not a concern. It is recommended that you light your lamp every day for the best air purifying results, and you can leave your lamps on for as long as possible. This will not only maintain a constant negative ionizing process, but also repel excess moisture build up around the lamp. If you plan not to use the lamp for longer periods of time, just put a plastic bag on the lamp as prevention from humid conditions.
How to clean your salt lamp:
Wipe the lamp with a damp (not soaking wet) towel or sponge in order to remove dust. Once cleaned, dry the lamp with a paper towel or turn on the lamp for a while.
Keep out of reach of children. Always unplug the lamp before changing the light bulb to prevent electric shock. If you choose to place a Salt Crystal Lamp on a wooden surface, please ensure that it has a waterproof base so that you do not damage your furniture.
Positive effect of salt lamps on our environment
Today, at the beginning of the 21 st century we can hardly, if only, imagine living without many electric devices. They make it easier for us to work in the office, at home, they entertain us. However, we often do not realize that they are also a source of very harmful positive ions, the so-called electric smog. The harmful effect of electric smog, resulting in the concentration of positive ions, deteriorates the condition of air in rooms, what then negatively affects our physical and emotional state.
The most important sources of harmful positive ions are:
- computer monitors
- TV sets and radio receivers
- electric heaters
- dryers, vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens, etc.
- tobacco smoke
Scientific research has proven that the amount of ions in the environment, acceptable by the human, is ca. 1000 – 1500/cm 3 . In closed rooms where a few people work at the same time the amount of negative ions may fall to as low as 200/cm 3 . The positive effect of negative ions can be experienced on a visit a Salt Mine, by the sea, or walking right after a storm. Now you know how important it is to make sure that the harmful effect of electric smog is reduced to a minimum in the rooms where we work.
The cheapest and the simplest method of fighting against electric smog is to air rooms regularly, particularly those in which a few people stay together for some time, in which there are many electric machines, or where cigarettes are smoked. You can also use air ionizers, but these are quite expensive. To help you remove electric smog, we offer a SALT LAMP . Made of a salt crystal, it is a natural air ionizer that effectively boosts the number of negative ions in the room. The effect of air ionization by salt originates from physical and chemical properties of salt discovered many years ago. In salt lamps the ionization effect is additionally enhanced by heating the salt crystal with a bulb installed inside the lamp. As a result, the lamp improves the quality of our environment, and thus our well-being.
In addition, crystal salt helps much to cure many diseases. Bioenergotherapists and homeopaths in Western Europe have recommended crystal salt lamps for a long time to support treatment of allergies, respiratory system and blood system diseases. They are often used in the treatment of rheumatism. Due to its beautiful and rich colors, salt lamps are also used in the color therapy, i.e. chromotherapy. Their soothing light helps neurotic persons and people suffering from insomnia. The lamps have also been appreciated by Feng Shui art connoisseurs.
The curing properties of salt was proven by the fact that salt miners much more rarely suffer from respiratory system diseases. Long-term scientific research on the effect of salt mine microclimate on human health have resulted in establishing an underground sanatorium in the Wieliczka Salt Mine. This place has earned great appreciation of people suffering from respiratory system diseases. Now you can also have a 'micro salt mine' at your home.
Our lamps are made of a salt crystal excavated from the depth of 600 m, which evolved in consequence of natural geologic processes many millions years ago. The lamps are hand made, taking great care of the natural crystal beauty.
Surrounded by artificial products of the civilization, we all need a unique product, a natural salt lamp.
Choosing the right size of lamp
Choose a salt lamp to accommodate the size of a room for which it is intended.
The amount of negative ions emitted by salt lamps depends on their size. If you don't know which lamp to choose please use the table below.
2 - 3 kg lamp is recommended for 10 m2 surface area premises 10 m2
3 - 5 kg lamp is recommended for 12 m2 surface area premises 12 m2
5 - 7 kg lamp is recommended for 15 m2 surface area premises 15 m2
7 - 9 kg lamp is recommended for 18 m2 surface area premises 18 m2
9 - 13 kg lamp is recommended for 20 m2 surface area premises 20 m2
13 - 17 kg lamp is recommended for 25 m2 surface area premises 25 m2
18 - 25 kg lamp is recommended for 30 m2 surface area premises 30 m2
Naturally, the larger the lamp or the more lamps in one room the larger accumulation of negative ions in it.
