|More than just an attractive home decorating element, salt lamps are believed to play an important role in health promotion. In home decor, salt lamps are typically used as accent lighting. They also function as natural indoor air purifiers. They are ideal decorating elements for offices as well as any room of the home.
These beautiful and practical lamps are crafted from natural salt crystals. To make salt lamps, hollows large enough to accommodate light bulbs or candles are made in sizeable pieces of mined salt. They are available in a variety of naturally occurring colors, including off white, beige, pink, and orange.
When salt lamps are in use, the heat from the candles or light bulbs causes the salt crystals to release negative ions into the air. This results in a reduction in indoor air pollution, and is believed to reduce humidity and help reduce environmentally triggered headaches and exhaustion.
