When the Himalayan salt particles are gently heated, it releases negative ions. These negative ions can only be obtained by natural environments like the beach with breaking waves or the forest. Negative ions clean the air from the positive ions produced by electronic devices and promote a more relaxed and cheerful environment.
Salt saunas, unlike natural environments, release the negative ions more intensively. These ions can combat the effects of free radicals while producing a relaxing sensation. Much like the feeling you get at the ocean or immediately following a storm, air charged with negative ions suppresses serotonin within the body, thereby instigating higher energy levels and positive moods
Breathing salt in a sauna is not only beneficial to boost your mood, but it also relieves respiratory conditions such as allergies, asthma, bronchitis and treats skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis.
