Before I can explain to you why pink Himalayan salt lamps are so beneficial to your health, I need to briefly tell you about positive and negative ions and how they can affect the way you feel.
Rather than be rude you could have just not replied. GEEZE
Have you ever noticed how mentally and physically refreshed you feel after sitting by a gashing waterfall? Or how you experience a boost in energy after spending some time at an untamed seafront? What makes you feel so good in spots of this kind is the abundance of negative ions, which get produced in some natural places.
How does himalayan salt differ from rock salt? Theyre both solid sodium chloride so I would expect both types of salt to be equally effective.
I just have a question. I just recently bought a Himalayan Salt Lamp and was wondering if I could cover it at night with a light cloth napkin to dim it slight as it is rather bright in our room when we sleep.

Thanks for information, if you can get me full contact details of manpreet mathur. As I want to buy salt lamps.
Hi Racheal, if you spritz the lamp with water, since salt is hygroscopic (attracts water to its surface) the lamp might sweat (although if the salt lamp is left on, the heat of the light bulb will prevent sweating and will help evaporation). You can perhaps spritz a little bit of water in the room but I would not spritz it directly on the lamp.
does the himalayan salt slowly melt.
I purchased this one on eBay, is there any way to tell if it is real or not? It says 100% Himalayan Salt, but how can I be sure?

Some people leave their lamp on all the time, but you dont have to some people turn it off before they go to sleep. The lamps are generally safe to leave on at all times, but if you plan on to leave your home for an extended period of time, for example if you go on vacation, then its best to unplug it until you return.
I have beautiful lamps from I use them in my birds rooms and all over the house. Even my dogs love them! They have these dimmers on them, which is excellent to have! I was told to keep them on as much as possible and use as many in the house as I could for best results. The company is wonderful! and the selection is wonderful. And I think they are fair trade which you never know when buying products made oversees how they are being made.

Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps
It produces the light waves of the rainbow spectrum which protect your body.
I have found a good quality Himalayan salt lamp at Walmart for only $15! It comes mounted on a wooden base, and has a dimmer switch. It would make a terrific Christmas gift.
Another way to improve the quality of air in your house is by frequently airing the place, so the air can circulate. In the winter months or when there are high levels of air pollution, it might be difficult to leave the windows open and sufficiently air all the rooms. That is when the salt lamps can be particularly useful and can help cleanse the air and remove the stubborn winter bugs.
Ive read about some anecdotal evidence that some people keep the lamp on their nightstand and turn it on for 2-3 hours before bedtime. When the heat from the lamp reacts with the salt, it creates a reaction that purifies the air, and some people who use these lamps have noticed a reduction in snoring, allergies and asthma.
The lamp will last forever if you take care of it. The bulb depends on your usage just like any normal light bulb.
To get the full benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps its generally recommended to leave the salt lamp turned on all the time, as the more you leave it on, the greater air ionizing and purifying effect it will have. The lamps are generally safe to leave on at all times, but if you plan on to leave your home for an extended period of time, for example if you go on vacation, then its best to unplug it until you return.
Just. Beautiful. I am always recommending to my friends and family that they get some lamps. A guy I know also had amazing benefits from using a Himalayan salt pipe for his breathing issues. I have 4 in my home, Im completely obsessed with them!
I have six of these and I believe that they work !! My mom has respiratory problem and I think it has helped her a lot.
Aree there stores in the Philippines thst sell this H. Salt?
Where do these salt lamps originate from? Ill buy them directly from the source instead.
Would any one know how exactly does salt crystals It balances artificial frequencies and unnatural electromagnetic wavelengths that originate from electronic appliances?
The bulb inside of the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. Salt itself ishygroscopicand attracts the water from the surroundings. You can often see that the salt lamp is damp or even wet, especially in more humid environments. Due to the gentle heat of the lamp, the water quickly evaporates and during the evaporation process the beneficial negative ions get created. They go on to bind with excessive positive ions (bacteria, molds and allergens all carry a positive charge) and neutralize the electronic smog in your home.
* If the lamp has been turned off and it has cried while been off and has not been wrapped up, salt may have cried onto the bulb which will cause it to blow.
For more ideas on how to naturally improve the air quality read my other articles:
Scientifically speaking, the Himalayan salt lamp achieves the following things:
Hey people. these lamps are available in[emailprotected]@mathur
Dont expect massive improvements if you tuck away a single rock lamp in the far corner of your house where no-one ever goes. These lamps have a limited range. You will achieve best results if you place them somewhere where you and your family spend a lot of time, or where there are a lot of electronic appliances.
No. The bulb inside of the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. If the bulb is turned off, you will not have this effect.
There are a lot of fake and cheaper versions on the market that dont use Himalayan salt. You should check the origin of the lamp you are purchasing. The real lamp is made from pure, food grade Himalayan salt. Substitutes from rock salt will not provide you with the same benefits.
I bought one at Ross, lol. I want more now.
I bought mine at Ross and TJ Max that is the cheapest places

Hi Nancy, Ive read a comment of a lady who advised that When not using the lamp for long periods of time, dont leave your lamp in a humid room, as it attracts moisture from the air (as part of its function) and it began to weep all over her furniture. I have also read a recommendation of Himalayan salt lamps manufacturer that recommends placing your Himalayan salt lamp onto a decorative plate or holder to avoid it leaving marks on furniture. The manufacturer also recommends that if you plan on having your lamp switched off for an extended period, he recommends unplugging the power cord, separating the cord from your salt lamp, and wrapping the salt lamp in a plastic bag to keep it air tight. This will prevent the lamp from pooling water.
Now, there is a way to mimic these perfect circumstances in your own home and indoor places where you spend a lot of time.

The globes used in Himalayan Salt Lamps are meant to be in a stationary position. If they are moved suddenly or are exposed to vibration, they are likely to pop. High humidity can also cause globes to pop.

We have 3 of these lamps and they are awesome!!! I keep one right on my desk and have it on all day and night while Im working. ?
From what Ive read, you need to make sure that the dogs cannot reach the salt lamp so they avoid licking it, as too much salt can be harmful for dogs (and cats). Other than that I couldnt find any information that indicates that the lamps are not safe for pets.
Where would you like to enjoy the lamps relaxing effects?
My 2 dogs sleep in their beds in my bedroom. Is their any contraindications for dogs?
Ive read that as long as the lamp is not immersed in water (as it is salt and will dissolve) it will last for a very very long time, but I dont know what about the electrical mechanism of it.
* The lamp is moved while the lamp has been on for a while.
Some people leave their lamp on all the time, but you dont have to some people turn it off before they go to sleep.
hi. i live in the high desert. should i spritz the lamp with purified water? since we have such low humidity? its usually in the 30% range for humidity here.
Nature produces negative ions to combat air pollution. They attract the harmful particles, which are positively charged, and they balance and neutralize them, so that they lose their damaging characteristics.
Moreover, pink Himalayan salt lamp is a very pure source of light and its multi-colored glow has a soothing effect and relaxes you.
rubbing alcohol kills those suckers FAST! You have to be careful because rubbing alcohol is flammable but it is highly effective. Our downstairs neighbor in our old apt. building had a nest of bedbugs he never bothered to get rid of and they spread through our building. We ended up with an infestation ourselves which two visits from an exterminator was not able to eradicate. I was desperate and at the end of my rope when I started trying all different types of chemicals, pledge, windex, you name it.. nothing really worked until I spilled rubbing alcohol on my bed by accident. Next thing you know, they were avoiding that side of the bed I started spraying the mattress every night before bed (leaving the room until the fumes settled). problem solved! Weve since moved and not a single one made it to our new place, THANK GOD!
Then, place your salt lamps in these areas.
I tried to search it but couldnt find information about it. I believe that covering it with a light breathable cloth is fine.
I have that one also, and really like it.
I have previously written about theamazing pink Himalayan salt. Salt lamps areblocks of pure Himalayan salt, so they come from the same region of the world. Also known as the Vitamins of the Air, they are made from the salt that came from ancient oceans, and serve as a perfect air ionizer.
Himalayan salt lamps emit negative ions.
Mind, Body & Spirit fairs will have them. Its where I got mine from but you can also get them off Amazon too ?
How long is this Himalayan salt lamp last for
Where can I get a replacement when the bulb and wire get spoilt?
We are surrounded by positive and negative ions these are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained an electron and are electrically charged.
It is suggested to have more than just one pink Himalayan rock salt lamp. You can start with one of course and then add to your collection as you go along.Its similar to plants the more the better. You should aim to have at least one in every room you frequently use, such as bedrooms and living rooms.
What is the address of the Salt Lamp Store.
You can buy it online (like Amazon or other online shops) or in some lighting centers/stores or homeware stores.
Positive ions arecreated by electronic devicesand have been dubbed electronic smog or electronic air pollution. As we all know, we are increasingly surrounded by all sorts of computers, large screen TVs, telephones, microwaves and other appliances we now deem necessary for our survival and entertainment (although only a decade ago we did perfectly well without most of these).
