Frequently Asked Questions


Q. What does a salt lamp do?
A. When the salt lamp is turned on, the heat from the light bulb will heat the salt crystals which releases negative ion. Negative ions will then break down the positive ions to neutralize them. Positive ions are created by surroundings that we face in our everyday lives such as electronics, pollution, animals, cigarette smoke, dust, etc. Therefore having these positive ion neutralized, the air quality is better overall. This will then decrease the effects of asthma, allergies, headaches, sinuses, fatigue, stress, insomnia, other respiratory illnesses, and other minor illnesses.

Q. How do you clean the salt lamp?
A. Use a damp (not soaking wet) cloth, towel, or sponge to remove dust. Afterwards, dry the salt lamp with a dry paper towel or cloth. Then leave the salt lamp on for a period of time so the heat can dry the salt lamp completely.
