I have for as long as I can remember loved salt lamps mainly because I thought they were just plain beautiful! Not until very recently was I introduced to all the positive aspects of owning my own salt lamp, boy I will tell you once I read about all the benefits of owning a salt lamp I was intrigued and very excited to be able to host a review and giveaway of a salt lamp from Himalayan Salt Shop!
About Salt Lamps (from the Himalayan Salt Shop Website):
This is how our wonderful products can benefit you:
These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base
This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
Heat from the bulb (in our lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions
These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them
Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation
In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home
Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products
Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful
All of our cords are UL listed.
For a more technical explanation of the workings of these products see the explanation below which was attained from the authoritative text "Water & Salt - The Essence of Life" by Dr. Barbara Hendel and Peter Ferreira.
I was sent a beautiful 4-5 lb. Salt Lamp to review and I will tell you after reading the above information I have to say I was way beyond excited! Now “Bug” and the rest of us suffer from seasonal allergies so I decided to put our salt lamp in our living room on the end table by the couch that we use the most!
Isn’t it just beautiful?
And here it is lit!
I have had our salt lamp now for quite some time and I wanted to make sure I had enough information to give a fully honest review of how it worked for us! I did notice just after a couple of days of having the lamp plugged up and looking beautiful, that the house seemed just a little bit fresher in the living room area, we have an open kitchen, dining room and living room so often times the smells from the kitchen walk their way into the living room and some foods don’t have just the best smell in the world and can seem to last forever! But with our salt lamp it doesn’t seem to linger as long!
I have also noticed a difference in our allergies and the amounts of dust in our living room area! “Bug” doesn’t seem to sneeze as much and have to take allergy medicine daily like before nor do I have to dust everyday!
We love our salt lamp from the Himalayan Salt Shop not only is it extremely beautiful and looks so great on our end table it seems to be a great benefit to have in our home as well when it comes to our allergies and some of our cooking smells!
If you are looking for a high quality, beautiful and functional salt lamp be sure to check out the Himalayan Salt Shop! I also think any of their beautiful salt lamps would make a wonderful housewarming gift or just a gift for any occasion, I know I would welcome another dozen or so into our home :0)!
