Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps
Himalayan salt, which is used to create Himalayan Salt Lamps, is one of today’s most sought after items in the world of nutrition and holistic health. Over the years, researchers and health experts have discovered a plethora of uses for this incredible product.
Salt lamps are ideal for daily use near televisions and computers, around smokers, in offices with air-conditioning, in fact anywhere you want to restore or preserve the natural air quality. Himalayan Salt Lamps are a beautiful and natural alternative to artificial ionisers.
Due to their beautiful and rich colours, salt lamps are also used in colour therapy, i.e. chromo therapy. Salt lamps have also been appreciated by Feng Shui art connoisseurs. The lamps are hand excavated from salt deposits at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains and great care is taken to retain their natural beauty.
Even when the lamps are cool, they have some beneficial effect, but when lamps or tea lights are lit, the gentle heat they generate produces a far higher number of negative ions. Bio-energy therapists and homeopaths in Europe have recommended crystal salt lamps for a long time to support treatment of allergies, respiratory system and blood system diseases. They are often used in the treatment of rheumatism.

We recommend keeping your Rock Salt Lamp turned on as much as possible. The longer it is on the better the efficiency. They are safe, economical, eco friendly, natural, pure (untouched by pollution).
We recommend you place your salt lamp or tea light candle holder on a placemat or something similar to protect the surface your crystal salt lamp or tea light candle holder is sitting on.
How to care for your Himalayan Salt Lamp
Due to the hygroscopic properties of salt (absorb moisture from the air), Himalayan salt lamps and rock salt candle holders are best not used in damp rooms, outdoors, in humid conditions, near evaporative cooling, or be allowed to get wet.
If your lamp gets wet, switch off at the power source, remove the cord and globe and then wipe the rock salt with a dry cloth. When dry, replace the globe and cord and switch on the lamp or light the tea light candle in the candleholder to re-dry the rock salt. Should you suspect water has dripped into the globe connection, replace the cord and globe immediately.
Should your Rock Salt Lamp get a bit dusty or dirty, switch off at the power source, remove the cord and globe, then moisten a cloth (wring out completely) and rub the dirt off the lamp. For heavy, ground in dirt, you can use a scourer (this won’t hurt the lamp); allow the lamp to dry either in sunlight (inside) or by replacing the globe and cord and then switching on the lamp.
If you live in exceptionally humid or wet weather conditions, it’s strongly recommended you have your Crystal Salt Lamp on continuously, to keep it as dry as possible. For best results, keep on 24/7.
Should you wish to turn your salt lamp off for more than a few days (temperate conditions) or a few hours (humid/tropical conditions), remove the cord and globe from the lamp and place the Rock Salt Lamp in a plastic bag (a supermarket bag will do). This will prevent your salt lamp from “weeping” or “sweating”.
