Either Way, You Reap The Benefits!
Went out of town, and down the road a bit for the 4th of July holiday. Rarely do I have time to take the day off since I started going back to college. Reluctantly I agreed to do the tourist thing with my friend, and just check out the shops in an old historic town and look around. When I went into this rock shop while I was away from Las Vegas, I stumbled upon something so exciting I have to share it with my Scented Soy Candles fans, and candle business associates.
But that’s not the best part!
Imagine being allergic to dust living in Las Vegas! Especially during the olive and mulberry season we undergo every spring time. There are days you see everything coated with yellow from the pollen. What does this have to do with soy candles, candle holders or tea lights?
Solidified Himalayan rock salt is mined, then lovely salt crystal lamps and tea light candle holders are created. Salt crystal tea light holders are available in rough hewn shape or smooth on the outside. Each piece is uniquely one of a kind because natural impurities caused color variations as the salt bed dried out.
The most important thing to know is the color of the salt determines the quality. My research has shown the beautiful pinkish orange color is confirmation of the highest quality.
Tea light candle holders and lamps made from salt crystal are not medical devices, but they do prove beneficial when one is attempting to lower levels of many indoor pollutants. Not only do salt lamp tea light holders and Himalayan salt crystal lamps freshen the scent of the air you breathe, but they also have the ability to remove sinus irritating pollutants.
I bought this salt crystal holder to burn my scented soy candle tealights inside the candle holder. I have already started to reduce my dependency on synthetic allergy medications, while purifying the air I breathe. The lady at the rock shop told me to keep it on top of my computer desk where I work every day. What a great idea that was!
When I am working on my computer, there is way to much paper to be burning a tea light beside me. So I found a way to double my pleasure. When I am working on computer, I took a small stand, drilled it for light, and made my light base. While on the computer, I use my tealight holder upside down over to be continuously warm. (At night I “really like it on the coffee table for romantic candlelight.)
Placing a 7.5 watt light inside each of the smaller lamps or candle holder produces enough heat to warm the rock salt wall which maximizes the continuous release of desired negative ions. In a cubic centimeter of fresh country air (the size of a sugar cube) as many as 4,000 negative ions can be counted. Up to 10,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter can be found near waterfalls, or strong surf. Do you remember how “fresh” the air smells after blowing in during a rainstorm? Or have you stood at the base of a waterfall smelling the purity of the air. Did you ever breathe the fresh air where the surf pounds into rocks on a coastline?
Ions have positive and negative charges. Here is what happens if I understand the process correctly. (Correct me if I am wrong.)
Negative ions are electronically charged molecules made up of oxygen. Pollution in the air causes molecules to lose electrons changing the ion to become a positive charged ion. Recharging positive ions changes these molecules back to negative ions again. The result is fresher air with an added benefit being the reduction of indoor airborne bacteria. The cleanness, the freshness, the purity of air quality happens when negative ions are produced.
We have covered the very basics of how they work, but what exactly is a salt lamp? Quite simply salt is mined in blocks. A chunk of salt is hollowed out leaving room for the candle, or a small light bulb to be lit, which heats the salt crystal walls. Light shines out, glowingly from the candlelight inside the candle holder. Himalayan salt lamps make very attractive accent lamps. However, the main purpose of the light is to heat the walls causing the continuous release of negative ions.
I am going to be offering salt lamps and salt tea light holders for soy candles for sale on this site. If you want one like mine before the webpage, is finished – contact me via email. I’ll arrange to get it for you.
