A Lightbulb placed in the centre of the salt rock that produces light along with slight heat required to generate negative ions due to natural phenomena. The question that how a salt lamp works is a metaphysical mystery for an ordinary person.

2. How Salt Lamp Produce Negative Ions

Salt lamps work as natural ionisers due to natural phenomena between air, light and salt. The salt lamp interacts with the macromolecules of water present in the air, that reacts with the heat produced by the light bulb within the salt lamp, and as a result, they release sodium and chloride ions, which carries the negative charge.

The formation of negative ions is directly proportional to the size and weight of the salt lamp.
