Himalayan Salt Lamp Review

I was so excited to be able to review this Himalayan Salt Lamp from the Himalayan Salt Shop.  My husband has his degree in Secondary Education in Earth Science and loves stuff like this.  When I took it out of the package and plugged it in, he said that this is the coolest thing that he has ever seen! This lamp could go in a living room, bedroom, family room, etc.  It is perfect for anyplace in the home!

Here is what the company has to say about the lamp:
  • 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
  • Heat from the bulb (in our 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
Here is a picture of it all lit up!

My take on it: I absolutely love this lamp.  It is super easy to put the light in the lamp and it looks awesome in a bedroom.  It gives enough light to see but is dim enough to be romantic.  I think it is so neat that it is made of natural salt too!

Where to buy: You can purchase this lamp on the Himalayan Salt Shop website for anywhere from $20-$100 depending on the size and shape you want.
