So, what the heck is an ion?
An ion is a molecule which has either gained (negative ion) or lost (positive ion) an electron. Positive air ions are molecules of carbon dioxide whereas negative air ions are molecules of oxygen. It’s the negative ions that we want more of, as they neutralize particles of pollution with a negative charge.
How does the Himalayan salt lamp work?
Simply put, the salt crystal is a natural magnet for airborne water molecules, including air pollution. While the bad air moves towards the salt crystal, the crystal is heated by the lamp inside, causing it to evaporate. As a result, the evaporating water produces the negative ions, which neutralizes the bad air particles.
Also worth noting, So Well additionally offers organic and holistic beauty, bath, kitchen, and cooking products.
