Nature’s Air Purification Process Becoming Part of Spring Cleaning Regimen

May 1, 2009, Parsippany, NJ – As homeowners become more health conscious and more green savvy, they are turning to more natural ways in which to clean their homes. And, as they learn more about the harmful effects of indoor air pollutants, more and more people are putting Himalayan crystal salt lamps on the top of their spring-cleaning shopping list.

Dating back hundreds of millions of years, pure Himalayan crystal salt is known for its special properties and high mineral content. Through nature’s perfect design, when heated, the crystal salt emits negative ions, which bond with positive ions, also known as pollutants. When this natural bonding process occurs, the positive ions are neutralized, and harmful pollutants and electro-smog, caused by electronic devices being used in the home, are removed from the air.

The Himalayan Salt Shop, which offers a variety of one-of-a-kind lamps made from crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, has seen an increase in interest from consumers. Company president, Ernest Gaglione credits this rise in interest to consumer knowledge of the health benefits of Himalayan crystal salt. “More and more we see an interest in natural and holistic means for improving our health,” says Gaglione.

Reported health benefits from Himalayan crystal salt include everything from eliminating the symptoms of asthma, allergies and other illnesses, to establishing a sense of peace and wellbeing.

Available in many different shapes and sizes, the lamps are illuminated with light bulbs or candles, and have beautifully-crafted wooden bases. Orange-reddish in color, they add a warm glow to the ambience of a room. For the health-conscious, green-minded family or individual, a Himalayan crystal salt product provides the perfect way in which to utilize nature’s unique purifying balance, and celebrate the freshness of springtime.
