Pulpit Rock Himalayan 7.5" Salt Lamp is minded, hand carved, handcrafted and made from Himalayan Mountains. Each piece is chosen for its translucent pink color and faceted beauty. 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 the ancient ocean where it is believed that life began. The salt comes to you today in the form of a lamp, which, when lit, gives off what might be called a primordial glow, one part sunset...
Thanks to sites like this one,I bought 3 salt lamps. One that’s about a foot,and a half tall,with 2 smaller ones for: the master bedroom, living room,and home office. It’s been over 3 months now,and I feel they are keeping the air fresher/cleaner than my air purifier ever did. As for affecting our mood.I would say to some extent, yes due to the salt lamo’s warm glow. I always prefer,and use a dimmer for low light anyways. Trying to be “greener” by reducing emissions as much as possible. Drive a plugin car. At some point,I would love to install a battery wall, powered by solar.
The salt crystal is mined by hand in the Himalayan mountains. Each piece is selected for its unique pink 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. And it is that ancient salt, which comes to you in the form of a crystal lamp and which, when lit, gives off what can only be called a primordial...

So yes, they’re beautiful, and you’re totally welcome to get one for that purpose. It’s just unlikely to provide any measurable medical benefits. But if you want one to add to your meditation routine or because it fits with your decor, go for it. “It’s a nice new-age prop to have,” Kogan says. “But also we have to be smart and not fall prey to marketing claims.”
This explanation has the great benefit of sounding scientific. Who really knows how ions are formed in the first place or what will happen to blocks of heated salt rock, anyway? One person with pretty deep knowledge on the topic is Caltech professor of chemistry Jack Beauchamp, an expert in (among other things) the myriad processes that generate ions and the analytical methods used to detect those ions.
Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from pieces of Himalayan salt crystals. They serve as beautiful interior decorations and act as natural sources of light. However, the many diverse functions of Himalayan salt extend far beyond aesthetics. Combined with a light source inside the lamps, the chunks of salt produce negative ions, which yield positive effects on indoor air. Placing a Himalayan salt lamp in every room of the home can reap several health and environmental benefits. Among other things, they can:
Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. I have Himalayan salt lamps in my house. I personally love them. These lamps are just more than awesome. They are not only beautiful but also have healthy and healing benefits for human mind and body as you have mentioned above. They eliminate all the dust particles and smoke from the air and make it pure and fresh. They help me in relieving stress and depression and improve the sleep cycle. I bought my lamps from ittefaqco at a very reasonable price and they are of great quality. You can visit their website if you want to.
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.
the days get noticeably longer in April or so--you could time them with clock shifts. In the humid summer months it is a good idea to let them "rest" in a plastic bag and cardboard box. In addition to improving the air quality, I think that the soothing light assists with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) problems because when lit they glow like a live coal and emit a very warm, soothing color spectrum. You can also change their tint somewhat by putting different color light bulbs in them.
“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.
This will then give a consistent negative ionising effect in the room where it is placed. When replacing the bulb (make sure it is turned off and unplugged), you need to carefully pull out the lamp fitting. Remove the bulb carefully and dispose of, then screw in the new bulb. You need to squeeze the butterfly fitting and allow to slide inside the whole with the desired depth, making sure it is not touching the lamp. With tea lights in the salt lamp, make sure you have extra long matchsticks to light the candle (this will ensure you don’t burn yourself). Tea light candle holders are very stable and cannot be blown by the wind. Make sure that you extinguish the candle, they can be hot and splash over clothing, furnishing or even your skin.
Don't use a salt lamp and a humidifer together. I did it, and my entire house was covered with a thin salt layer. It seems that the humidifier water carried the salt particles all over the house. It took me days to clean the piano black electronics (Xbox 360 S, black Wii, TV) and my book cases (books were covered in a layer of salt as well). Horrible experience.
