All-Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp Review

himalayan salt lamp

We bring you this Himalayan Salt Lamp review thanks to the Himalayan Salt Shop.  An FCS team member received a 5-7lb salt lamp to facilitate this review.  Onto the review…..

Are you looking for an all natural air purifier? If the answer is yes, maybe the the all-natural Himalayan Salt Lamp is your answer.  Exquisitely chipped from the base of the Himalayan Mountains, a topic of conversation, an all-natural air purifier displaying an orange/amber glow, a piece of home decor – this is what a Himalayan Salt Lamp is all about.  Let’s first educate you on  Himalayan Salt Lamps.

About Himalayan Salt Lamps

All-natural Himalayan Salt Lamps have been popular in Europe for decades.  They are now becoming popular in the United States.  They offer a two-fold purpose – purifying the air while serving as a beautiful, glowing, home decor piece.  The lamps are made of pristine pink Himalayan salt crystals and vary in sizes.  This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old which has special properties and high mineral content.

How Himalayan Salt Lamps Work:

How You Benefit:

Heat from the bulb (in lamps) or flame (in 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.

Onto our review…..

This is the Himalayan Salt Lamp we received to facilitate this review.  Isn’t this lamp just beautiful?  We had the perfect doily to set it upon in the room we placed it in – a bedroom.  In this photo, the lamp is lit.

Here is an up-close and personal image of the salt crystal.  Notice the intricate details of the the crystal. Doesn’t it remind you of rock candy?

The image below shows the ambiance this crystal lamp gives off when the room lights are off.  It very much holds a warm amber glow, in itself, and to the area surrounding it.  If you wonder if you could use it as a night light – you most certainly can.  We did think though, that this particular lamp size lit up the room too much for sleeping.

The lamp comes with an easy on – easy off UL listed cord.  The length of the cord is roughly 6′.

The salt lamp sits upon a wooden base which is where you’ll find the the light bulb.  The 15-watt bulb is included with the lamp.  If you look closely at the base – all that noise on the base is from handling the salt crystal to lie it down so that you could see the base.  The three (3) divots on the base is so that you have choices as to which way you’d like to display the lamp and yet keep the cord towards the back…simply brilliant!

In the bedroom this salt lamp resided in originally, we were unable to tell if it made a big difference in the air quality.  Though in all fairness, to get the best results for purifying the air – it’s recommended that the lamp stays on all the time.  We did not keep it on all the time in the bedroom due to the way it lit up the room during sleep time.  However, we did not find any foul odors in the bedroom it resided in.  The room was odorless as one entered it.

We also placed this in a room where there is an Ozone Ionizer nearby, for a few days.  We found that with the lamp on as well as the Ozone Ionizer being on, that for whatever reason, the salt lamp canceled out the effectiveness of the Ozone Ionizer.  One could smell the stench of stale cigarette smoke walking through the door.  It was our hope that we could effectively use both purifiers since the salt lamp was essentially placed on the other side of a wall from the Ozone Ionizer…though, this was not the case.  Given this finding – the salt lamp must do something good in order to cancel out the effectiveness of an Ozone Ionizer!

We’re going to move the lamp once again – after the master bath is completed and place it in the master bedroom. This post will be updated when that happens.  This will be a major test as the master bedroom, during the winter (it’s fall now), causes major allergy issues for one of us.  We would have tried this before now, but the dust particles from the room being remodeled is beyond a light dusting and we certainly didn’t want the lamp to get ruined by that.

I’m sure you’ve heard many times over that steaming your floors sanitizes them without harsh chemicals being involved to get them clean.  That fact is huge because those floor cleaners that are on the shelves in stores contain carcinogens (cancer causing) chemicals.  In turn, walking on wet floors (you or your pets) without shoes, those chemicals seep into the body through the skin.  It’s a great feeling to know, that, with just water, you can steam clean sticky messes while safely sanitizing your floors using this steam mop.
