Today, we’re going to give you the inside scoop on Himalayan salt lamps and all that they have to offer…
What are Himalayan Salt Lamps?
Himalayan salt lamps are typically made from single chunks of pure Himalayan Salt. Each lamp has a compact light bulb inside. Some people prefer to use Himalayan salt lamps which feature a few larger salt crystals, which are grouped together inside of a basket. Some of these lamps are heated and lit by candles, rather than light bulbs.
When shopping for this type of design, make a point of finding a lamp which is made with pure crystal from Himalaya, rather than a cheaper version which is crafted from Rock Salt. The purest Himalayan Rock Salt is actually edible.

History of Himalayan Salt Lamps
Himalayan salt crystals formed hundreds of millions of years ago, near the base of the Himalayas. Used for centuries in order to heal and soothe, these salt crystals were the preferred crystals of royalty and earned the nickname, “King’s Salt”, as a result.
Lamps made from this type of salt have also been utilized for centuries. Of course, candles were needed in the days before electricity!
Benefits of These Lamps
These pretty lamps generate negative ions. As you may or may not know, the air is filled with negative and positive ions. Negative ions are found in nature and they are produced via waves in the ocean, the shining sun, the downward cascade of waterfalls and via dazzling lightning storms.

Negative ions seem to help people relax and “recharge their batteries”.
If you’ve ever felt more alive and renewed after a storms outside or after you’ve been to the beach, it’s possible that negative ions worked their "magic" on you.
In contrast, positive ions are emitted via man-made devices, such as computers and appliances. Positive ions don’t have a soothing effect on our bodies, minds and spirits. They may even exacerbate allergies, mood swings and insomnia. This is why bringing more positive ions into a home or commercial environment will be so beneficial.
Gaining access to more negative ions is the main reason why people invest in Himalayan Salt Lamps.
However, these lamps look lovely and cast a gentle, almost mystical glow, so they are also very decorative.
