They can definitely clean the surrounding air of allergens and, even though it’s difficult to find extensive scientific studies to back all of the reported health benefits of salt lamps, the many positive reviews of people’s personal experiences makes them well worth considering, either for your own home, or as a gift for a friend who cares about health and wellness.

These soothing lamps may also help boost mood and energy levels, especially for those with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). The soft orange hues are one of the soothing colors often used to calm mood and increase focus. The small amounts of negative ions may also be helpful in boosting mood as well. But, if you’re looking for the benefits of the negative ions, spend some time outside instead!
Like several comments above, I also smelled something burning one night in my office and couldn’t figure out what was the culprit for awhile. When I located the source of the problem and tried to turn off the salt lamp, I almost burned my hand by touching the dimmer/switch. As you can see from the photo, part of it was melted. Glad I was there that night. Or my office would have been on fire!
Incidentally, that nice pinkish color that glows once the bulb is turned on is the only thing you are going to get from a salt lamp. Salt lamps may look neat, but claims that they can do anything medically rely — fatally — on the claim that the lamps produce negative ions and then further rely on a series gross simplifications or misinterpretations of science to argue that those negative ions (which don’t exist in the first place) could affect you in any meaningful way.

At any rate, we plugged the unit into an electrical outlet, dimmed the light to a very pleasing dim orange color and placed the lamp on a table. The lamp has been turned on 24/7 for a couple of weeks now. The dimmer is cold to the touch and we have experienced no issues whatsoever with the product. We are very pleased with the lamp, its appearance, and the nice pinking-orange dimmable warm glow it casts.

“The lady doth protest too much…” This article suggests to me that the writer or those who have paid to writer has a hidden agenda. And I’ll cite that science has made our world into a shit hole where we are now browbeaten into accepting and trusting conventional gangster snake oil medicine, pesticides, herbicides, fluoride, mercury laced vaccines, etc., and so on, all of which is touted to be good for us but which is poison to us while we are ridiculed and discouraged by science “experts” from using natural solutions. Science and scientists have betrayed us. And why? Because they are funded by those who want to continue to poison us. If the writer of this article is in earnest, then the writer has been thoroughly, successfully indoctrinated into serving on the wrong side of history.
The strongest evidence supporting any benefit of negative ions is as an antibacterial agent. A 1979 study in the journal Nature showed that high levels of negative oxygen ions could kill bacteria. Ionizers could also reduce the prevalence of surface and airborne bacteria in refrigerators, according to a 2009 study. However, that research applied only to sanitizing food or work surfaces, and did not make any claims about health benefits.
The unrefined, carefully crafted, and solely hand-carved salt lamps come from chambers in the Khewra salt mines. But first, miners prepare six feet holes, and then they add gunpowder and let it explode, which breaks down the Himalayan salt structure into smaller blocks. Not all salt blocks are equal. Some companies, like So Well, employ fair trade practices and pride themselves on unique and rare salt lamps.

I found this online first and then went to my local Walmart and bought it. Then I lied it so much I went online and found another store with two more. It is the best price of anywhere This helps ionize the air and good to cleanse the air and for some people with breathing problems. It is very pretty and has a dimmer switch. this picture in taken in a dark room with light only from it on low. I don't like lamps on at night but I leave this one on dim and the light is soothing. Remember this is a block of salt and it is heavy and it does not need to be in a damp or wet area. I would not recommend it around small children where they could pull it down on them, it is about 14 pounds or so. five stars all the way, I LOVE IT and got the others for housewarming gifts.

The Himalayan salt lamps can release negative ions into the air, creating an effect similar to an ionizer, purifying the surrounding air. This process is enhanced by the natural process of NACL resulting in the production of negative ions which eliminate the positive ions which are present in our environment, produced by computers, refrigerators, televisions and more. Thus, these lamps make the air clean, fresh and healthy to live in. HIMALAYAN GLOW Himalayan Salt Lamp is minded, hand carved...

After having this salt lamp for two months, the light bulb make a loud noise and sparked. I tried putting in a new bulb and it still wouldn't work. This ended up happening to three of the five salt lamps we purchased (I purchased five of these at once from this seller). I tried getting in contact with the seller and they never responded so now I'm stuck with 3 salt lamps that can't be used.

This Pulpit Rock Himalayan Glow Natural 8.5" Salt Lamp is mined by hand in the Himalayan Mountains. Each piece is selected for its unique color and purity. The salt comes from a 250 million-year-old dried up seabed, from the time when the earth was covered with water and it was in that original ocean, that life began and it is believed, that salt had something to do with it. It is that ancient salt which comes to you in the form of Pulpit Rock Himalayan Glow Natural 8.5" Salt Lamp and which...
Himalayan salt lamps purify air through the power of hygroscopy, meaning that they attract water molecules from the surrounding environment then absorb those molecules – as well as any foreign particles they may be carrying – into the salt crystal. As the HPS lamp warms up from the heat produced by the light bulb inside, that same water then evaporates back into the air and the trapped particles of dust, pollen, smoke, etc remain locked in the salt.

We need light to see, but the light that we frequently use is overly bright and emits at frequencies that are overwhelming to our eyes. Unfortunately, there was no sufficient alternative to typical light sources until the invention of the Himalayan salt lamp. The versatile salt stones come in natural and shaped sculptures which have a unique aesthetic that’s unmatched. The pinkish-orange hue that the lamp emits is soothing and warm, but you can also try a multicolor USB lamp to pick a color that fits your architectural dreams. In addition to the visible effect on the ambiance, salt possesses a quality known as hygroscopy that absorbs water vapor and the attached microbes from the air. They also emit negative ions that reverse the effect of positive ionization from other technological devices which are known to have detrimental health effects over time such as increasing the risk of cancer. Combined with the natural beauty of the hazy, soft light that is more enjoyable than a bright overhead or grating florescent light, a Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp will instantly improve the ambiance of any room in a natural and healthy way. Adding a Himalayan rock salt lamp will instantly improve the ambiance of any room in a natural and healthy way.
