Himalayan Salt Lamp {Review}

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

I love to check out funky little shops when we visit someplace new. Something I keep seeing and consider buying each time is a Himalayan Salt Lamp. I love the color they give off, plus it’s like bringing a part of the outside in. And now that I have one of my own, I thought I’d share my thoughts with you!

Himalayan Salt Lamp {Review}

What is a Salt Lamp?

  • These salt lamps are made of natural Himalayan crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
  • The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base
  • This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
  • Heat from the bulb (in our salt lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions
  • These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them
  • Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation
  • In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home
  • Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products
  • Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful

I love the pink/orange glow, whether they are lit from a light bulb or a candle. Even when they aren’t turned on, they are still a natural piece of this great planet’s ability to make beautiful creations.

Unlike a regular candle, they don’t give off a scent of course. However, you can add a few drops of essential oils (like lavender at bed time) and the warm salt will diffuse the oil through the room.

Depending on the size you purchase, you may need more than one if you’re using them as a light source. I find mine on my nightstand is perfect for reading in the bed, but I wouldn’t do any sewing sitting next to it. And, of course, the larger the room the bigger Himalayan salt lamp you will need to get all of the benefits.

This lamp came from a store called the Himalayan Salt Shop and they offer a variety of other products besides the lamps. These make great gifts for a number of people you may be shopping for and they are definitely statement pieces. Whether you’re looking for a salt lamp, bath salts, or even salts to cook with, they have something for you.
