According to the scientific studies, negative ions are oxygen ions with an extra electron attached which are found in water molecules.
- Cleansing the air you breathe
They are also renowned for their ability to remove dust, pollen, dirt, smoke , and some other types of contaminants from the air that is being breathed in.
- Purify the air through hygroscopy
Himalayan salt crystals can help purify the air through the power of hygroscopy. This means they attract water molecules and water vapour from the environment and then the crystal salt absorbs those molecules into the salt crystals in the lamp.
As the lamp warms up, the absorbing water evaporates back into the air, and the trapped particles remain locked in the salt.
Because rock salt lamps can help remove microscopic airborne air particles, placing a Himalayan crystal salt lamp in the rooms where you spend the most time can significantly reduce allergy symptoms.
