It seems everyone has been talking about Himalayan Rock Salt Lamps and I was delighted I was asked to review this night light. Rock Salt Lamps come in many different sizes and the larger they are, the more expensive they are. Salt lamps are each hand carved and each completely unique both in color and shape.
This one I was given to review is actually a plug in night light, and they aren’t that expensive, so it can allow you to check out salt lamps and see if they are for you without spending far more on larger ones.
These lamps are heavy, even this nightlight, although rather large for a night light is pretty darn heavy and that surprised me a bit. My particular one has a very nice shape and a beautiful pinkish/amber color to it. When turned on, I have to admit the color is stunning.
So what is the deal with Salt Lamps and what are their benefits?
- Salt Lamps turn positive ions in the air and transforms them into negative ions which neutralize the electormagnetic radiation caused by all of our electronics. This in turn can reduce stress, fatique and help your immune system.
- Salt Lamps take in moist air, and trap the pollutants such as smoke, pollen, dust etc This reduces allergy symptoms as well as cleaning and deodorizing the air.
- The negative ions also help combat Seasonal Affective Disorder, improve your moods and concentration and even helps reduce static electricity.
Larger lamps are perfect for living rooms etc. and the smaller lamps for smaller rooms and the night lights work great plugged in next to your bed as it well cleanse the air in your immediate vicinity.
The light from the night lights is a beautiful warm glow that won’t keep you awake and might actually help you drift off easier.
If you are interested in a large table top lamp there is also a very nice 8″ one available as well
