ABOUT LOTTIE’S SALT STORE
Direct from source
Lottie’s Salt Store is a home run business based in Gurnard on the Isle of Wight and I am delighted to be selling Himalayan Rock Salt products, supplied to us by Bob's Salt Store in Bedfordshire. Bob's products come directly from his own salt mine in Pakistan, and are skilfully and beautifully handcrafted by local craftsmen. I have products available to buy at my home and also at various events that I do island wide, and through my Facebook page.
Himalayan Rock Salt
Himalayan Rock Salt originates from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. It is a natural and organic substance, and has been protected by its immediate environment, from the impurities of the modern world. The salt has the beautiful colour hues of pinks and reds, due to it's rich mineral content, and energy-rich iron content. The salt is extracted from the mines by skilled workers, and has various uses - many associated with our health and wellbeing.
Himalayan Salt Lamps also release negative ions into their surrounding environment. Negative ions also occur naturally via the effects of sunlight, fresh air and water, and contribute to feeling energised, clear-headed and motivated. Negative ions released by Himalayan Salt Lamps, reduce the positive ions which we are exposed to via electronic equipment. This reduces the risk of absorbing the harmful 'electro-smog', which surrounds us for so much of our days, and nights. Negative ions have also been found to directly improve mood, reduce feelings of anxiety and stress, and improve sleep.
Himalayan Salt Lamps purify air in a room, by attracting and absorbing water molecules (hygroscopy) from the environment into the salt crystal. As the lamp warms up from the heat generated by the lightbulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air, but the trapped particles of dust, pollen, pollutants, remain locked in the salt.
