Salt lamps are made out of big chunks of salt, in which a LED lamp or tea light is then placed. Salt Lamp Bulbs can come in different colours, creating ambient light. The lamps are natural, hand carved products, causing every lamp to be different from one another. They can also vary in colour, shape and weight. Salt light can emit a warm and relaxing pinkish glow. Many people experience this as cosy.
The Salt Crystal Lamp is said to release negative ions once lit. Scientific evidence suggests that negative ions can have a variety of health benefits. Spas even offer so-called ‘salt therapy’. Small amounts of negative ions can also help reduce the positive ones. Positive ions come from electronic appliances, such as cellphones, computers, televisions and so on. However, it is unsure whether a Himalayan Lamp produces a meaningful amount of negative ions. Just like with other crystals: trust your intuition!
Negative ions could potentially improve the circulating air. Negative ions attract a combination of air and dust particles which sink to the floor. This could give the air quality a boost, and they are actually seen as natural purifiers. Make sure the lamp is made out of 100% Himalayan Salt. If it’s not, the lamp will not have any effect on the ions in the atmosphere whatsoever. This lamp could potentially also have positive effects on:
The Lamp can be put anywhere serenity is desired. For instance in the living room, bedroom, hallway or office. Placing it next to electronic appliances such as a computer can reduce the positive ions and help produce negative ions, which will balance each other out. It is suitable for any room, so it is up to you where the lamp is desired or needed.
The pinkish colour of the lamp is a result of the Himalayan Salt. The salt contains many minerals, which are believed to be millions of years old. This creates a Pink Himalayan Salt Lamp. People often want a Pink Salt Lamp, because of the warm glow it can emit. This gives a much cosier vibe in one’s home. It is also found to be very modern. Thus, it could potentially not be only great for your health, but it can also be the one piece missing from your home to make it extra modern!
If the lamp begins to get dusty, wipe it with a damp cloth. Don’t overdo it with water, as this can make the salt melt. To prevent this from happening, it is also recommended to use a dry cloth or a brush as a precaution. This way, the lamp can last a lifetime.
Unfortunately, a lot of fake lamps are being sold on the market. When buying a lamp of Himalayan salt, make sure that the lamp is made out of authentic Himalayan Salt Rock from Pakistan, which can be found in Khewra salt mines. Only then is the product 100% real and natural.
To sum up briefly, the lamp can be a great addition to any home decor, whether it is also desired for its potential health benefits or not. If the Himalayan pink doesn’t attract you, then there are also more neutral colours such as white or grey. Looking for other Atmospheric Lights? Selenite Lamps have a serene, modern look.
