Natural Salt Lamps Cure Allergies?
My husband and I traveled to Chile a few years ago and brought back a natural salt lamp because we thought it looked really cool. (Confession: He's a total Star Trek fan, and I think he thought it looked like something out of Quark's bar.) We spent a couple of Saturday's retrofitting it so it would work with U.S. electrical outlets. And voila: a lighting unit you won't find in the Pottery Barn catalog. Want one? Sorry, you'll have to travel to Patagonia, my friend. And just try explaining it to the folks at Homeland Security.
But wait! Isabella Samovsky from Natural Salt Lamps just wrote to introduce herself. Turns out, she sells a whole range of salt lamps just like the one we carted back from Chile, and she'll save you the trip. Samovsky travels the world to find her Solay Salt Crystal Lamps - bringing back lamps from the Himalayas, Persia and Poland.
In addition to looking cool - and adding some definite zen to your living room, the lamps act as natural ionizers, great news for folks with allergies. Isabella explains:
Remember the feeling of breathing clean, fresh crisp air in nature? environments like mountains, springs, water falls and forests. Those natural places have an abundance of electrically charged negative (healthy happy ions). Salt crystal lamps by attracting moisture from the air, release those negative healthy ions. Those healthy ions gently purify the air by neutralizing bacteria, allergens, dust, so you experience healthier , cleaner air. No ozone, no noise and no filters to replace. They last indefinitely for your well-being.
Not sure I completely understand the science of it. All I know is we love 'em.
