our lamp range to include Gemstone and rock salt. All with fitted plug to UK standards.

Science

A series of scientific studies show that Rock salt lamps can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%. In nature Negative Ions are created by means of wind, sunlight, surf, waterfalls and rainstorms. Generally, a negative ion is an electronically charged molecule made up of oxygen. A positive ion in the air is a molecule that has lost its electrons through process of air pollution. In fresh country air we find up to 4000 negative ions per cubic centimetre – the size of a sugar cube. Near strong surf or close to a waterfall up to 10,000 negative ions can be found, however the number of negative ions in major capital cities at rush hour does not even reach 100.

The impact of negative ions 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. The greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well-being and enhanced human performance on mental tasks.

Ionised air also substantially reduces the number of airborne bacteria indoors. Doctor Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that an astonishing small quantity of negative ions could kill bacteria and quickly take them out of the air so they were less likely to infect people.

Even though they are not a “medical device”, Rock Salt Lamps, by emitting negative ions, significantly reduce a myriad of indoor air pollutants. Negative ions have known benefits, and may provide relief from sinus, migraine headaches allergies and hay fever, reduce the severity of asthma attacks, enhance the immune system, increase alertness, increase work productivity and concentration, increase lung capacity and reduce susceptibility to colds and flu.

Care Instructions

Due to the hygroscopic properties (absorbing moisture from the air) of the lamps, they should not be used in damp rooms or outdoors. If you live in exceptionally humid or wet weather conditions, it is strongly recommended that you have the lamp on continuously to keep it as dry as possible.

If moisture persists place lamp in direct sunlight for several hours to completely dry out.

Cleaning Instructions

Sometimes during transit the lamps can have portions of dust or dirt on the surface. To overcome this get a dish cloth, moisten and wring out completely, then rub the dirt off the lamp and allow to the lamp to dry. For heavy ground dirt or dust do the same process, but use a scouring pad instead. This will not damage the lamp. Then allow the lamp to dry in direct sunlight, but keep it indoors.This process can also be used for standard dust that may appear on the lamp over time.

Popping Bulbs

The bulbs used in Rock Salt Lamps are the type used in ovens. They are meant to be in a stationary position. If they are moved suddenly or are exposed to vibration, they are likely to pop.

If you have bulbs popping (blowing) regularly, here are some things to take into consideration.

The bulb is not quite screwed in firmly enough to touch both contacts;

The bulb is touching the inside surface of the lamp;

The lamp is moved while the lamp has been on for a while;
