Himalayan Salt Lamps, also release negative ions, although in smaller amounts than going to nature. Which is why we recommend using more salt lamps in your home, at least one in each room. That way, you will increase the negative ions in your air, which will help you unwind, and soothe you once you are at home.
Besides helping in improving your overall mood, negative ions released from Himalayan salt lamps an also purify the air which you breathe at home. All of the electromagnetic pollutions of your most favorite technological gadgets releases positive ions, which pollute the air and your surroundings. Negative ions, bond with positive ions, and discharge them, thus purifying your air.
