All of our Himalayan Salt Lamps are made from Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Rock formed millions of years ago in the foothills of Himalayas. They have beautiful colours, ranging from very pale pink/orange almost white, to dark pinks and oranges, due to the high concentration of trace minerals contained within the salt. Inside the hollowed out middle of the salt rock lamp is a light bulb to generate both light and heat.
Approximate Dimensions : 160mm H x 190mm W | Approximate Weight : 2.5kg | Approximate Base Dimensions : 100mm D
Our Lamps are Genuine Himalayan Salt Lamps, as they are a natural product, the colour, brightness (Himalayan lamps emit a soft glow not a bright light), shape and size can vary from item to item, photographs are for illustration purposes only. All of our lamps come with attached wooden base, 15W Pygmy Appliance bulb and plug/cable, packaged safely. We send the same sized bulbs with every lamp. For a brighter glow, higher heat, you may need a higher Watt bulb.
How do Himalayan Salt Lamps Work?
Water vapour is always circulating in the air of any room of your home. This water vapour carries along with it allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke particles, and even bacteria and viruses. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Himalayan crystal salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapour and its attached pollutants.Once attracted to the salt lamp, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not floating in the air where you could previously breathe them in. As Himalayan salt lamps slowly become saturated with water vapour they attract from the air around them, the heat from the lamp inside dries them, thus continuing the hygroscopic effect for as long as the light is on.This heat also re-releases water vapour back into the air. Importantly, any airborne contaminants attracted to the salt lamp remain trapped there and will not become airborne again. It is recommended that Lamps be left on as much as possible, lamps that are left switched off tend to “weep” or “leak” which is perfectly natural and normal, it means the lamp is still attracting moisture from the air, but it just does not have the heat to evaporate it.
