Himalayan Salt Shop - Salt Lamp {Review}

Tuesday, April 13, 2010 Posted by Rita A

What exactly is a Salt Lamp? You have probably seen the beautiful glowing salt crystal lamps with unique shapes. Yes they are made of salt. In theory, when the salt lamp is heated from a bulb or a flame, it releases negative ions into the air. Those negative ions bond with positively charged ions removing them from the air circulation. Allergens, and pollutants drop to the ground away from the air you breathe. The negative ions also are theorized to neutralize the effects of electronic devices in the home. Is it true? Can the Salt Lamp create such a better atmosphere in your immediate area? Some people swear by it. I myself, love the glow and the looks of the Salt Lamps. Because the lamps are mined from the earth, it is normal to have chips, irregularities and color variations. This makes the lamps more beautiful.

Himalayan Salt Shop has gorgeous Salt Lamps of varying sizes. Each lamp will be one of a kind. The sizes range from 4 pounds up to 50 pounds. You can find Salt Lamps in natural shapes or in crafted shapes. It is easy to find a style to match every decor. The beautiful orange glow is so inviting.

-These lamps are made of natural 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.

Browsing the selection of Salt Lamps at Himalayan Salt Shop is a real treat. The natural shape lamps are the most popular. The crystal shape can show lovely color variations and details. If you prefer a crafted shape lamp you can choose from a Bowl of Fire lamp, globe, pillar or a stunning teardrop shape. The Bowl of Fire Lamps feature a crafted salt bowl with an assortment of salt chunks filling the bowl. For a very decorative look the Bowl of Fire lamp looks fabulous in any room.

Courtesy of Himalayan Salt Lamps I recieved an incredible 11 pound Salt Lamp. I can not describe in words,  the beauty in this piece. The shape is natural with a usual crystal appearance. What makes my lamp so special is the exquisite darker section of the salt crystal towards the bottom of my lamp. It creates a different glow. The color is so warm and inviting. I have my Himalayan Salt Lamp glowing in my bedroom. I can't say I have noticed any difference in the air quality, but I can say we have been sleeping better. Maybe there is something to this wonderful lamp in my bedroom.

If you prefer to burn candles you can also purchase Himalayan Salt Lamp candle holders to use with tea lights for a special decorative glow.

You can clean your salt lamps with a slightly damp towel or sponge to remove the dust for many years of use. Bulbs should be 15 watt and are provided with your Salt Lamp purchase from Himalayan Salt Lamps. The longer you leave your lamp on, the warmer it gets and the better it purifies. Use your lamp safely at your own discretion.

When you are ready to purchase your own salt lamp, Visit Himalayan Salt Shop. The prices are very reasonable starting at $19.99 for a small natural salt lamp.

You will love the warm glow of your Himalayan Salt Lamp. Fill your home with natural beauty.
