Work of Art:
Our Salt Crystal Lamps & Candle Holders are made from Natural Salt Crystal created by nature million of years ago and hundreds of meters underground from foothills of the Himalayas, Pakistan. Salt lamps and salt crystal candle holders are natural air ionizers when heated that effectively boost the number of negative ions in the air. Each Salt crystal is unique in shape and color and when in use acts as a natural ionizer releasing negative ions in the air. Rock salt is carefully selected for these lamps and then the craftsman carefully carves the rock by hand. The natural color of these salt crystals blend from off white to apricot and orange to warm pink.
Salt crystal naturally provide the powerful negative ions essential for our health and well being which is severely effected these days by our hi-tech life style. Rock salt crystals and lamps effectively improve the quality of air by producing negative ions - the "vitamins of the air". Negative ions can be found in billions, on mountaintops, water falls, countryside and by the sea. They give the air its invigorating freshness, which is so good for us.
Researchers and doctors recommend salt crystal lamps to assist in the treatment of many health conditions. Crystal lamps which are illuminated from inside (warm) emit a higher number of ions. Even though they are not a "medical device", Salt Crystal 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. It speeds up recovery among burn and asthma patients and casts positive effects on serotonin levels in the bloodstream, stabilizes alpha rhythms and improves our reaction to sensory stimuli. The greater level of alertness can translate into improved learning, improved well being and enhanced human performance.
A series of scientific studies show that a salt crystal lamp can increase the negative ion count by up to 300%.
The 21st Century places immense stress on our body. More than before, you have a real need for a natural and effortless way to enhance your well being.
The quality of the air we breathe is essential to our health and well being. Breathing pure clean air not only keeps us alive, but also allows us to think more clearly, sleep more soundly, and stay healthier. Studies show that we receive 56% of our energy from the air we breathe, more than from water and food combined. In average we breathe 37 pounds of air a day, the equivalent of an Olympic sized swimming pool.
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 3000 negative ions per cubic centimeter - 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 per cubic centimeter.
We live and work in environment dominated by technology. In our current high-tech lifestyle, we can hardly imagine living without electric devices, they make it easier to work in office, at home in factories and many other such places..
These convenience devices discharge positive ions in air which are the reason for the deterioration of our physical and emotional well being.
Scientific tests have revealed that the ratio of negative to positive ions should be between 1.02 to 0.98 and the air's composition of negative ions should range between 1000-1500/cm3. Measurements have shown that the number of negative ions decreases to 200/cm3 in a closed room containing several people
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.
Dr. 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.
The beautiful and rich colors of the crystal salt lamps has been known to be useful in color therapy . Natural combination of colors in salt crystals helps improve physical and mental health.
Role of Salt Lamps, Candleholders and Salt Soap in Everyday Life:
Picture the heart warming and comforting flicker of a tealight candle through the translucent peach tones of the rock crystal in a darkened room… It is ideal for your bedside table whilst you sleep. Proponents of color therapy have used the qualities of the salt crystal lamp to enhance their emotional well being and balance with encouraging results.
Our Salt Products:
Rock salt for the natural series is carefully selected according to its shape. Then the craftsmen carefully carves the rock by hand to give it a more defined and neat shape, being very careful not to make an obvious change in the natural & raw form of the rock. Wooden, marble or stone bases are attached as per requirement.
Many people are aware of the benefits of negative ions, which are essential for our health and well being. The colors vary to red, orange, apricot & White. The sizes are from 1.5kg to 25kg. No two lamps are ever the same shape as they are made naturally.
The flickering flame creates a serene and easy environment. From the size of 0.8kg-2.3kg, each one unique and with it even character roughly almost the size of an orange. The tea light sets inside the rock, inserted from the top.
The most popular in these series is the mushroom shaped lamps. Other shapes can be made on demand.
Bath Salt Crystals & Soap Bar
Go ahead pamper yourself, you deserve it. We also have rock salt crystal bars which are used to massage on the body for relaxing results. This Soap bar is used to massage over the body to sooth and relax it. It also has antiseptic properties and therefore can be used as a natural antiseptic.
Moon Phase Baths
Full Moon Bath - On the day of the full moon the body's absorption potential is at it's peak. At full moon, the body will absorb the most minerals from the salt bath. Weak points are harmonized and the body's own energy flow is activated.
New Moon Bath - At new moon, the body's capacity for detoxification is at its highest. This is a perfect time for a cleansing salt bath. The saltwater bath has a deslagging effect, similar to a three-day fast. Weight adjustment and decontamination of the body are supported.
Application: For both moon rhythm baths, add 1 kg (2 lbs) of crystal salts in your bathtub with enough water to dissolve the crystals. After the salt crystals are dissolved, fill the tub with hot bath water (approx. body temperature). Don't use any chemical substance in this special bath. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes in the brine. You can experience this saltwater bath to be exactly as floating in the original embryonic solution. After the bath do not towel or rub dry but let the skin air dry naturally.
Throw away polluted seawater salt right away and start using natural rock crystal salt to protect yourself and your love ones.
Natural rock crystal salt is highly recommended for human consumption through food. 250 years old crystal salt is mined 1500 meters beneath the ground level in the Himalayas. It is free pure and and free from any external pollution. While the sea salt most of us use is made from polluted seawater and whitening chemicals are used to turn it white that certainly cause harm to our health.
Laboratory Analysis of our Natural Rock Crystal Salt:
Scientists recognize that natural crystal salt consists not only of the sodium chloride (NaCl) but also of other elements - those thought to be the same elements of which the planet Earth was composed, and from which original life and our bodies developed.
Our body fluids, which make up 70% of our weight, contain the same salts and almost the same ratio of components as seawater. Our blood is basically nothing more than modified seawater with all its trace elements. Each of these elements has a specific electromagnetic field with a specific frequency. The interaction of these naturally present trace elements in salt is very important for our body, as witnessed in the expression “salt of life”.
The highest grade of natural salt is crystal salt. The minerals and trace elements contained in crystal salt are present in colloidal form (i.e. they are so small that they can be absorbed by the cell through the cellular membrane). This means that such necessary elements as potassium, calcium and magnesium as well as trace minerals are readily absorbed by the body.
The story of who stole “white gold”, or crystal salt, is not a mystery. First, crystal salt began to be refined by man, reducing it to sodium chloride. This was not to purify it but rather to extract all the naturally present elements in the primordial salt. To do this, a costly chemical process requiring over 2,000 chemicals is used. What is extracted are substances like germanium, gold, and magnesium, just to name a few. These elements are sold separately at great profit. 93% to 95% of the refined salt goes to industry, where pure sodium chloride is required for chemical processes. The rest of the production, approximately 5 to 7%, goes to the food processing industry. Our cooking salt is practically all iodized even though is has been scientifically proven many times that the side effects of this forced iodization are detrimental. In recent years, the diseases caused by artificial iodization have increased by leaps and bounds. Other chemical substances such as aluminium are added to our table salt to make it pour easily.
In our daily food the average consumer ingests between 12 to 20 grams (0.35 – 0.42 ounces) of refined salt. Healthy kidneys can process only 5 to 7 grams (0.18 - 0.25 oz) per day. The rest remains in the body. The body needs twenty-three fold volume of water to bind and isolate salt. For that, the body will resort to using cellular water which it extracts from its cells if there is not enough water in the blood and lymph. With its vital cell water drained, the cells wither and die. Continuous loss of cellular water brings on dehydration and we slowly dry out. This is a chronic problem for people today.
When the body can no longer spare cellular water to maintain its 23:1 ratio of water to sodium chloride, the latter reacts with amino acids and results in the formation of kidney stones and crystal deposits in the bones and joints.
Through the isolation and binding of sodium chloride with water the body produces watery tissue, a tissue without any function and an ideal culture medium for deposits and bacteria. As long as sodium chloride is consumed it is difficult to get rid of excess weight and resultant watery tissue. Sodium chloride overload starts in childhood. Ironically, at the same time we suffer from a deficit of salt - the real salt which builds the electrolytic management in the body and produces the electricity that is so important for the nervous system.
In contrast to refined cooking salt, sea salt contains the naturally present trace elements. Unfortunately, with recent extensive water pollution, sea salt can be loaded with harmful substances, especially heavy metals, which generate negative bio-physical frequencies.
Natural salt, or pure crystal salt, is the best alternative to cooking or sea salt. In earlier times, it was known as "king’s salt". It is a natural salt that gave rise to such expressions as "the salt of life" or "white gold"’. Natural salt matured over millions of years under high pressure, and it was not exposed to contamination. In crystal salt, energy was built up over time to form a very specific crystalline structure. All minerals contained in it are colloidal. Looking at this bio-chemically, we can see that we benefit from those minerals; bio-physically, we also profit from the energy and frequency of the crystal salt.
When crystal salt is put in water, it will dissolve until the solution becomes saturated at 26%. This is called brine. During the saturation process, energy is released. This is the same hydration energy that was absorbed into the salt when it dried out of a sea millions of years ago.
It is almost impossible for our bodies to absorb too much crystal salt since this natural process is self-regulating. Natural crystal salt always has a balancing effect so that high blood pressure does not result. On the contrary, through the balancing effect high blood pressure is reduced and low blood pressure is raised.
Crystal Salt Brine and Drinking Therapy - Loosely fill a closable glass container (Mason jar) with several of the crystal salt crystal chunks. Add energized water, completely filling the vessel. After several hours look to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. Add more crystals until the water can no longer dissolve any more salt. Some salt crystals will sit at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point the solution will have become saturated at 26%, and ready to use as sole. The 26% concentration now remains stable. The glass can be refilled again and again with water and salt, continuing this process. Each morning, mix and drink one teaspoon (5 ml) of the brine in 8 oz (250 ml) of energized water. The brine can also be used undiluted for tooth brushing, and as a mouth wash to reduce gum bleeding.
Bio-physical research has shown that the consumption of a crystal salt brine solution has positive effects on the human body, provided the rock crystals are not processed by machines but by hand. To maintain quality, it is imperative to observe processing steps, as postulated by Peter Ferreira, published in his book Water and Salt.
Brine Drinking Cure
1. The easiest way to dissolve old sodium chloride poisons built up as crystalline deposits in your system is to take a brine drinking cure. In the morning, on an empty stomach, put a teaspoon of brine solution in a glass of pure water. Wait 10 minutes before eating or drinking.
2. We recommend the use of brine for teeth brushing. It balances the pH in your mouth and works against gum bleeding, periodontal diseases, canker sores and bad breath. If used consequently, your teeth will become whiter again and tartar will dissolve. Using brine as a mouth wash has proved to be effective, as has gently brushing the tongue with the salt solution.
These results clearly indicate that taking the brine solution on a regular basis is the key to health maintenance. The explanation for this is quite simple: the smaller the rocks, the lower the inherent energy. Since our rocks have not come in contact with grinding machines, they carry the highest energy charge and those are used for making brine solution. The table and mill salt has to be ground in a machine, therefore they do not have the same kind of energetic quality as do the whole rocks. Brine solution (see applications of how to make it) can also be used for other things, like adding a few drops to your salad dressing or other food, brushing your teeth with it, or inhaling and gargling with. The brine is great for skin blemishes and insect bites too.
Balance the Body's pH Factor and Get Rid of Heavy Metals
The brine is good for balancing the pH factor of your body. With brine water one can get rid of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic and calcium because the crystal salt is able to break up their molecular structures. A simple example can help you understand this concept. Put some 26% brine solution in your teapot that has hard water or calcium build up. Heat it briefly and watch how the calcium dissolves in the brine. This process is a simple chemical reaction. You can treat your body to a similar therapy in order to get rid of the calcium build up and the heavy metal deposits in your body. For the body to get rid of these deposits it has to first metabolize them. Even animal proteins, which are difficult to break down and eliminate, will be eliminated through the urine due to the strong structural formation of the crystal salt.
A brine bath is recommended for skin diseases, rheumatism and joint diseases, after operations, for gynaecological diseases and for children with a tendency to recurring infections, to strengthen the immune system and to detoxify the body.
To get the full benefits of a therapeutic natural salt bath, the right salt concentration is mandatory. The salt concentration has to be at least the same as the one of our body fluids (approximately 1%) to activate the osmotic exchange ratio. Since a full tub normally takes from 100 to 120 liters (27 – 32 gallons) of water at least 1.2 kg. (2.6 pounds) of natural salt is required. To avoid using body energy to balance the temperature, the water should be 37° Celsius (97° Fahrenheit). The bath should last 20 to 30 minutes. During this time, the body reaches the same salt concentration inside and outside as the one that can be compared to the pre-natal state.
From the brine bath the minerals penetrate the skin in form of ions. The stimulation will cause natural cell growth in the living cell layers. Bio-energetic weak points will be balanced and the body’s own energy flow will be activated.
The natural regulating mechanism of the body, homeostasis, is initiated. The detoxifying effect of a brine bath can be compared to a 3-day fast. Since salt is also a disinfectant, several people can use the same water. Observations have shown that the applications of the therapeutic natural salt bath cure have the best effect at the changes of the moon (at full moon: optimal assimilation; at new moon: optimal detoxification.
Brine Steam Inhalation
Used as an aid with chronic and specific illnesses of the upper and lower respiratory tracts (asthma, bronchitis, acute as well as chronic sinuses and ear infections). Put a little salt (approximately 10% by volume) directly in hot water and inhale the vapors for 10 to 15 minutes, keeping your head and the bowl covered. The respiratory tract needs about 30 minutes after inhalation to bind the deposits and poisons by producing mucus and secretions, which will usually cause a light cough. This application can be done daily depending on the individual's state of health.
Body Peeling - Do you feel tired and without energy? Make some time and treat yourself to a full body peeling. First take a shower with warm water to open the pores. A body peeling made from a mixture of pure Himalayan salt and oil is ideal for de-toxification. You will achieve the same purifying effect as going on a several day fast. At the same time you will receive an energy boost due to the high concentration of minerals in the salt mixture. The peeling will also enhance the blood circulation in your skin.
Directions for Use: In a little bowl, mix 3.5 Tbs. (50 ml) of pure Himalayan crystal salt with 1 Tbs. (15 ml) of jojoba, rosehip, primrose or other good oil and a quarter tsp (1 ml) of 100% pure essential oil (lavender, or other to suit your taste). Stir the mixture until it is smooth. Lie down on a bath towel and rub your whole body with this mixture. You can enjoy deeper relaxation if somebody else does this for you. Wrap yourself in the towel then cover yourself with a blanket. Keep the peeling for about half an hour. You will experience a warm flow throughout your body which shows that the body cells began their work. Rinse off the peeling with warm water and gently pat dry your skin. Don't rub it dry. The oil will remain on your skin and make it soft and velvety.
Arthritis and Gout
On an empty stomach, drink 1 tsp. of brine (see ) with good quality water.
Continue drinking good quality water throughout the day, at least 2 to 3 quarts. Make a cold brine poultice of pure brine solution (26%) and apply it to your infected areas. Wrap with dry cloth bandage.
Directions for Brine Inhalation - Heat 4-8 quarts of water until boiling. Add the salt (1 oz. for each quart of water) and let it dissolve. Cover your head with a towel and inhale the vapors, keeping your face far enough away from the hot steam so as not to burn yourself.
A poultice made of brine (brine poultice) - Open wound injuries should only be treated with a diluted solution of 1/2 oz. crystal salt diluted in 1/2 cup water. If you use a higher ratio, the injury will create a burning feeling. Use only quality, non-carbonated mineral water to treat the open wounds. Take sterile gauze, soak it in the brine solution, rinse it and apply it on the wound. Then wrap a dry cloth around it.
De-tox, Flu and Fever Relief
Dip a clean cotton shirt in a 3% brine solution – 2 T (60 ml) of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart (1 liter) of water. Soak the shirt thoroughly and put it on. Cover (wrap) yourself in a dry towel and lay in bed (covered with your blanket.) After about half an hour you will start sweating. You can support the effect by drinking a cup of tea. Stay in bed for 60 to 90 minutes. Take off your shirt and shower. Lie down for one hour to rest.
This procedure is an excellent detoxification tool and activates the metabolism. The brine shirt shows excellent results with high temperature viral conditions. In such cases it is better than the brine bath.
Brine Soaked Socks - This procedure has a similar effect as the shirt but is especially helpful when you suffer from cold feet and gout. Soak a pair of clean cotton socks in a 3 -5% brine solution – 2 -4 Tbs. of crystal salt diluted in 1 Quart of water. Wring the sock thoroughly and put them on. Wrap your feet in a dry towel. Leave it on for about one hour. Rest a while after you remove the salty socks.
and gums are not only visually appealing but also very important for our
overall health. Pure Himalayan crystal salt is excellent for dental hygiene.
Most common tooth problems derive from an over acidic condition in the mouth
and throat. The salt will build up a pH neutral mouth flora and will help
protect your tooth enamel.
Psoriasis appears mostly at adulthood. An alkaline diet and the abstinence from animal proteins are the foundation for every treatment plan. Especially good for psoriasis are fresh or frozen vegetables (not Brussels sprouts or artichokes), salads, mushrooms, fresh fruits, potatoes and all root vegetables, cold pressed olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetable juices, non carbonated water and herb teas.
Even without following this diet you can still experience the beneficial effects of salt therapy. Traditional medicine has recognized the healing power of salt for Psoriasis for quite a long time. For severe cases, the only cure for patients is a treatment in the Dead Sea which contains the highest salt concentration in the world. But as one cannot indulge in such baths for ever, and without lifestyle changes the symptoms return.
Treating your psoriasis at home - Every morning, on an empty stomach, drink a glass of water with 1 tsp of brine water. Drink 2 -3 quarts of energized water during the day. Take a brine bath 2 times a week for 10-20 minutes. Start with a 3% brine concentration (6 lbs/ 3 kg of pure Himalayan crystal salt dissolved in a full bath tub). Gradually increase the concentration up to 8% with your next baths. The brine bath will not only moisturize your skin, it will help stop inflammations.
A highly concentrated brine bath is a strain on your body and more so with higher temperature. Use a temperature that feels comfortable to you, and not more than the body temperature of 98.6° F. You can achieve greater effect by letting the sun dry you off, 5-10 minutes will be sufficient. The parts of the body that are more infected than others, like elbows and knees, can be massaged with the concentrated 26% brine solution.
Herpes sores can be very painful, annoying and persistent. The herpes virus remains in our nervous system and when our immune system is weakened, the virus can multiply at an explosive rate and form these very well known blisters. Once they appear, the usual remedies offer little relief. Try some Himalayan crystal salt. The intake of the brine water will strengthen your immune system.
On an empty stomach, drink 1 tsp. of brine with energized water.
Continue drinking energized water throughout the day, at least 2 to 3 quarts
Apply some pure, concentrated brine solution (26%) directly to the infected blister with a cotton swab every hour.
Note: All above applications are established empirically. Before you begin with therapeutic applications, please consult your physician or health practitioner.
is the lamp lighted?
The lamps usually have 110/220 volt AC light bulbs. There are other models that use tea light candles also.
Answer: The light fixture is simply held in the lamp by prongs that spread to hold it up within the lamp, simply unplug the lamp and work the fixture out through the bottom.
Answer: our light bulbs are all common generic bulbs, ranging in size from a 4 watt night light bulb, up to a 40 watt chandelier bulb. You can usually find our bulbs in most supermarkets, in the same department as the light bulbs, they are usually in packages of several bulbs, hanging on rack, it is best to take the original bulb from the lamp with you, to be sure that you match or find a similar light bulb.
Answer: At first leave your lamp on while you are at home, and see if the electrical cord gets warm, if so turn it off. However we have not had the cords heat up, when our lamps are left on for long periods of time, and many of our customers leave theirs on 24 hours a day, without a problem.
Answer: As our instructions on the box that your lamp was packaged in say, do not leave our lamps by open windows, or out of doors, and if they are in a humid area, such as the bathroom, leave them on, so that the heat from the lamp, evaporates the moisture. If your lamp has moisture on it, simply wipe off with a soft cloth.
Answer: that will not be necessary very often, and when you do, a soft cloth is fine, unless due to the environment such as from cigarette smoke in the air, you may use a slightly moist soft cloth to clean your lamp.
Answer: As long as your lamp is kept out of humid situations, such as out of doors, or near open windows in a humid area, the salt itself is 250 million years old, and should last another 250 million years! We offer a limited lifetime warranty on all the electrical parts. In case of any problem you may contact with your local dealer.
Answer: Our lamps have been scientifically proven to naturally produce the healthy negative ions, and they have been laboratory tested. Depending on how sensitive you are to your environment, you should notice the effect right away, and more so as time goes by.
Answer: The area each of our lamps (approximately) covers effectively with the healthy negative ions is as below:
