Discovering Himalayan Salt Lamps
Oct 18 2019
When I first saw Himalayan Salt table lamps I thought they were cool. They gave off an orange glow that seems soothing. They made me curious to find out more about them.
In this review I will present what I discovered about these Himalayan salt table lamps. I'm going to talk about what they are, where they come from, what makes them special and mention a few things about owning them.
What Are They
These lamps are salt crystals that come from the Himalayas. They come in different shapes, weights and sizes. The inside is hollowed and a small low wattage light bulb is fitted within. They plug in to an electrical outlet. Some lamps include a dimmer switch depending on the manufacturer. These lamps are supported by a sturdy base.
One of a Kind
These Himalayan Salt Crystal table lamps are truly unique. No lamp will look the same because they are naturally formed and are not man made. The texture, color, feel and weight of each lamp will be different. If you want to display something unique in your home, then the Himalayan salt lamps fulfills this criterion.
These lamps are so unique and look so different from your ordinary table lamps that they become conversation pieces when people see them. It's hard for people not to notice them and ask what these things are. You'll have fun talking to people about these lamps and sooner or latter they will be asking how they can get one of their own.
Health and Medical Benefits
Many people claim that having these lamps around the home has helped them reduce or eliminate their allergy or asthma problems. They feel the air in their home is cleaner or fresher. Cigarette smoke, pet odors and other indoor pollution problems have disappeared. People feel that the glow of the light soothes and relaxes them as well.
There isn't any scientific evidence to prove these claims but many users believe these crystals have improved their well-being.
For those who believe in the air purifying properties of the Himalayan salt lamps, suppliers say 2 lbs. of the salt is enough to purify an area 10 square feet. So a 20 lb. Himalayan salt crystal lamp is big enough to purify the air in a 10' x 10' size room. In addition, the suppliers recommend leaving the lamp on 24/7 to purify the air.
Some users have noticed moisture on these lamps. The salt attracts moisture in the air. They recommend placing these lamps over a towel and in extreme cases, place them over a shallow tray or pan to catch the water that drips. Then drain and wipe away the moisture when required. Leaving the lamp on may help reduce the moisture on the surface.
Keep in mind that when you buy these lamps, the weight is quoted as a range. Nature decides how much these lamps will actually weight. Nature also decides on color, so what you actually get may differ from any photos.
