Salt Lamps-Siwa Oasis

 

Salt Lamps & candle holders from Siwa Oasis    اباجورات مصنعه من ملح  واحه سيوه

  Siwa oasis is surrounded by three huge salt lakes which receive freshwater from underground springs. This water is believed to have been underground for 30,000 to 50,000 years.The lakes and the marshland around them are also well known as bird watching paradise.Research proves that heated salt crystal lamps are natural ion producers in small amounts. They bind the negative ions with excess positive ions ( that are produced by electrical appliances and computers). When the lamps become warm, they absorb moisture and the surface crystals become damp. This builds up the ion field.

  Water vapour is always circulating in the air of any room of your house. This water vapour carries with it allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke particles, and even bacteria and viruses. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Siwa salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapour and its pollutants. Once attracted to the salt lamp, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not floating in the air where you can breathe them in. As Siwa salt lamps slowly become saturated with water vapour they attract from the air around them, the heat, from the lamp inside or beneath, dries them, thus continuing the hygroscopic effect for as long as the light is on.

 This heat also re-releases water vapour back into the air. Importantly, any airborne contaminants attracted to the salt lamp remain trapped there and will not become airborne again.

 Occasionally, perhaps every few weeks, it’s good to turn off your salt lamp for an hour, let it cool and then gently rub it with a damp cloth to clean away trapped dust and particles. The rest of the time just leave it on and let it work to clean their air in your room.What is the effect of this reaction? The ambient air surrounding the lamp is cleaned by the transformation cycle of hydrogen and oxygen, as well as sodium and chloride ions. The resulting purified air is said to be helpful in the relief of asthma symptoms and upper respiratory problems.
