Himalayan Salt Lamps

These beautiful lamps come in various sizes and depths of color (white, pink, orange, and red) depending on where they were mined, but they all do the same thing.


They are carved out to place a small light bulb in the bottom that not only supplies the light, but also heats up the salt, which is how it releases the negative ions.

Because the salt also attracts moisture from the environment, when it becomes humid the salt may glisten slightly as though it is wet, but it will evaporate easily through the heat of the light bulb.


The salt’s negative ions neutralize the positively charged ions in the air. You can expect the salt lamp to help eliminate electronic smog created by various wireless devices in the home.

Add a salt lamp to every room or at least the ones with the most pollutants (rooms with TVs, computers, wireless devices and allergens).

Apart from their obvious beauty, they will help keep your home smelling fresh and clean and your body healthy and strong.
