Q1: Is there any scientific evidence to prove salt lamp / tealights effectiveness?
A series of scientific studies show that salt crystal lamps / tealights can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimeter, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100. The impact of negative ion is powerful. Originally, it was found to speed recovery in burn or asthma patients, but was later discovered to affect serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilize alpha rhythms and to positively impact our reactions to sensory stimuli.
Q2: What are the Therapeutic Uses of Crystal Salt?
Long term scientific research into the effects of salt mine microclimate on human health resulted in establishment of underground sanatoria, mostly in Eastern Europe. They have long been recognized and used in treatments of allergies, respiratory and blood system diseases as well as rheumatism.
Now you can also have a mini salt mine or create this "microclimate" in your home, a place where you need it most.
Q3: How salt lamp works?
Just place one in a room and plug it in. Even before the ionization process begins, you'll be uplifted by the Rock Salt Lamp's inner glow which is quite transfixing, especially in a darkened room. After twenty minutes, the rock is warm to the touch. Heat is absorbed by the Salt Crystal from a small light bulb discreetly fixed and concealed above its base in a hewn cavity, which adds to its mysterious charms. The heated salt crystal pulls water molecules from the air to its surface, the salt goes into the solution of the water, neutralizes any positive ions (and the attached pollution), and emits the neutralized molecule back into the environment.
Q4: How long will my lamp / tealight last ?
The salt itself is 250 million years old, and should last another 250 million years but its property to generate negative ions will be decreased after three years if it is being used contineously. It is recommended to replace salt lamp after this time period.
Q5: At least how salt lamps / tealights are claimed to be more beneficial than other lamps / tealights?
It's because of the extra-ordinary value of the salt lamps / tealights crystal. Rock Salt Crystal 's surface is naturally mystic and appealing. The physics of salt crystal says, it posses the property of scattering light evenly, emitting a more ambient like effect in the environment. Secondly, Salt Rock Crystal performs anti-septic action against the air-borne and skin-borne (Epidermis) bacteria and virus. Also it provides care for the breathing problems that might generate through positive ions in the environment generated by electric appliances, and also helps curing Asthma.
Q6: What size must a Salt Lamp be to give the best results?
For a room size of 64 square feet, a lamp of about 5-7lbs, for 100 square feet 8-9lbs, 144 square feet a lamp of about 10-12lbs, for 225 square feet 14-20lbs to get the optimum result. You can use several small lamps or tea lights instead as long as they amount to the same respective weight.
Q7: Do you entertain volume order?
Yes, we entertain. Just let us know your wholesale quantity. We will start a listing for you in ecrater wholesale category, so that you can buy from there at mutually agreed prices.
