ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we
inhale in abundance in certain environments…
We are today
surrounded by artificial electric devices such as computers,
televisions, microwaves, radars, x-rays, to name a few, that are
sources of energy-draining positive ions. We work every day under
bright white light bulbs, sometimes without fresh air or natural
light in our environment. We are getting used to feeling tired
after a day’s work, sometimes not realizing that it might be due
to the environment’s energy and air quality.
ions balance this energy, making us feel rejuvenated and
energized. Generally speaking, negative ions increase the
flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness,

When warmed up by fire or a light bulb, they emit negative ions,
which have an energizing effect, such as the one we feel when we
are on a mountaintop, by the seaside, or after a thunderstorm.
They can be a great contrast to our daily exposure to positive
ions. Salt crystal lamps also help people suffering with
Asthma, Respiratory problem and Chronic Bronchitis.
Using the crystal salt for bathing has relaxing effects, as well
