How to choose the Best Himalayan Salt Lamp!

Himalayan Salt Lamps have become very popular. They are hygroscopic salt crystals that absorb water molecules, dust, pollens, smoke and other particles from the air. Himalayan Salt Lamps are basically activated by the heat of the light bulb. So, when switched on, the heat from the light bulb evaporates the water molecules and the contaminants remain trapped in the salt. Himalayan Salt Lamps reduce breathing disorders such as asthma. They, also, help reduce stress and improve concentration. So, whether you want a Himalayan Salt Lamp for yourself or to give one out as a gift, you need to make sure that it is actually a high quality salt crystal and not some kind of imitation. But, how can you choose the best Himalayan Salt Lamp? How can you know if your Himalayan Salt crystal is authentic?


One thing you could notice is the color. The best quality Himalayan Salt is pink, white, or slightly orange in color. So, most salts crystals give off a pink, amber, or dark orange glow when lit from within. However, if your salt lamp gives off a bright light, the salt crystal is most likely… fake. Furthermore, most distributors provide a certificate of authenticity, a warranty card, or a flexible return policy. If your supplier does not provide a warranty card for example, or has a very strict return policy, the salt lamp is, again, most likely fake. Last but not least, notice if your Himalayan rock salt “weeps” when it is not used for a long time. It has to “weep” or “sweat”, because when switched off for a… long while, the moisture will be absorbed by the salt lamp but the salt will start to drip down on to the base of your lamp, leaving behind salt rings or salt-water puddles.

Size & shape

If you want a big Himalayan Salt Lamp, consider getting the WBM Himalayan Ionic Crystal Natural Salt Lamp. The salt rock is fleshy pink and will emit a calming amber color. If you are looking for something less expensive, Himalayan Salt Tea Lights are the best solution. They are basically candle holders and you just put a tea light into them. When the salt rock is warmed, the ionizing effect happens and so you get all the benefits you would get from a regular Himalayan Salt Lamp. On the other hand, if you wish to combine elegance with the benefits of the Himalayan Salt you could buy Himalayan Salt chunks in metal baskets or holders. They look impressive and, again, the effect is still the same so you get all the benefits you would get from a regular Himalayan Salt Lamp.
