Have you ever wondered at what all the fuss is about Aromatherapy?
Well, we have, so we delved into the world of aromatherapy to discover some of the believed benefits surrounding some of the products available. Trusted for thousands of years the benefits of aromatherapy go far beyond just providing beautiful fragrances (but of course we love that too!). Many believe that aromatherapy products also provide numerous health benefits. They can help to:
- Ionize the air to improve air quality
- Purify the air – with some essential oils having strong antibiotic properties which kill airborne bacteria
- Enhance your environment with exquisite, long lasting fragrances to provide a calm and restful space
- Provide a positive effect on emotional well-being.
Why use an aromatherapy lamp from Salty Lamps?
Today, at the beginning of 21st century we can hardly, if only, imagine living without many electric devices. They make it easier for us to work in the office and at home. However we often do not realize that they are also a source of very harmful positive ions, the so-called electric smog, resulting in the concentration of positive ions; deteriorates the condition of air in the rooms, what then negatively affects our physical and emotional state.
The Salty Lamps and Tea Light Candle holders are made from Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Rock formed millions of years ago in the foothills of Himalaya.
Each lamp is carefully handcrafted to retain the unique, beautiful and natural shape of the rock. The warm glow beautifies any room in office or at home while the crystal produces healthy negative ions. Salt crystal lamps & tea lights are known to improve the quality of air by producing negative ions which are good for our health.
Anywhere you want the air quality to be improved or preserved anywhere you want to create a cozy, relaxing, wellness environment anywhere you want to enjoy the beauty of nature.
- Office workers. A lamp at work can help improve your concentration and refresh you, neutralizing the effects of stress, artificial light and air environment.
- Massage Rooms. A lamp or two in the massage room will greatly enhance and create a natural lionizing calming, wellness environment and will also keep the air fresh.
- Computer Users. Place a Salt Crystal Lamp near your computer to reduce fatigue, counter EMF (electro magnetic pollution) effects from equipment. The lamp will also minimize the effects of all that monitor radiation.
- Allergy Sufferers. A Salt Crystal Lamp in your vicinity will help your wellness and keep the air around you clean, ionized naturally, and beautifully.
- Convalescents. While you recover from an illness, a lamp by your bedside will be a comforting and healthy companion.
- Parents, place a comforting Salt Crystal Lamp by your child’s bedside. It is a completely safe and lovely night light, and will enhance your child’s sleep, keeping the atmosphere clean.
- Well accepted by Natural Health Practitioners. A Salt Crystal Lamp glowing in your consulting or treating room assists the healing process and adds to a calming environment.
- Meditators. When you repose in peace and quiet, a Salt Crystal lamp near you is known to enhance your meditative experience.
- Smokers. A few lamps around smoky areas will clear away those lingering smells faster.
Why use an Aroma Diffuser?
Purifies the air. Essential oils that are added to a diffuser increase the purifying effect because they can help kill bacteria and fungus that are present in the air. Research has shown that oregano, cinnamon bark, thyme and clove bud are the strongest and most effective antibiotic oils.
Reduces dust in the air. Aroma diffusers have an ionizing effect. The air quality is improved because more negative ions are released into the air. These ions attach themselves to the positive ions, which causes dust to fall on the ground (so that it no longer pollutes the air). At the seashore and high in the mountains, lots of negative ions are naturally present.
Spreads scent quickly throughout a room. A special, built-in ultrasonic device divides the essential oil into millions of micro particles, creating a very fine water vapour that quickly spreads through a room. It will only take a few minutes until your entire room, be it at home or at the office, is scented with a delightful aroma!
Humidifies the air. Aroma diffusers atomize the water and the essential oil so that the air is immediately humidified. This is ideal, since dry air (<30% humidity) is linked to several respiratory tract issues, as well as irritated mucous membranes and dry skin. A healthy humidity level ranges between 40% and 60%.
Smells good! Since scent has a large impact on how we feel, it is essential that the environment we live in smells pleasant. By diffusing essential oils, odours can be eliminated and a nourishing atmosphere can be created.
Maintains the oils’ quality & effectiveness. The ultrasonic device creates a cold water vapour so that the oils are not heated. For example, by heating the oils in an aroma lamp, the therapeutic effect is strongly reduced. On top of that, it is a waste of the precious oils that have been carefully and lovingly extracted from Mother Nature’s flowers and trees. To illustrate, think of jasmine flowers that are hand picked at night to preserve their natural, optimal scent. An aroma diffuser ensures that the quality and effectiveness of the essential oils remains optimal.
Distributes the entire scent. If an aroma lamp is used, less volatile molecules will stay behind in the dish of the aroma lamp. Only the lighter molecules are spread through the air and able to be effective. Therefore, the same oil can smell differently in an aroma lamp because an aroma diffuser spreads the entire fragrance.
And, of course, with an aroma diffuser you will also benefit from the positive effects that essential oils can have on your overall physical and/or emotional well-being. In short, an aroma diffuser is an investment that can quickly ‘pay for itself’ as it provides you with many advantages.
With all this in mind, what’s not to love!
