How I Use My Himalayan Salt Lamp

You may have heard people talking about salt lamps and how they use them in their home.  After hearing about it for so long I decided to try a Himalayan Salt Lamp from Himalayan Salt Shop for myself.

Here's a little bit of background information about Himalayan Salt Lamps.  These salts are hand chipped from the base of the Himalayan Mountains and they contain 84 different minerals!   That in and of itself is pretty amazing.  The 15 watt light bulb heats the salt and causes it to emit negative ions like the same ones found in the ocean, thunderstorms, and waterfalls. Negative ions help remove dust, pollen, dander, cigarette smoke, bacteria, and they offset positive ions generated by electronic devices such as computer monitors and TVs.  Some people that have asthma, allergies, and other illnesses use salt lamps to help their situation.  I love the idea that a salt lamp can cleanse the air naturally and look gorgeous at the same time. 

So since the living room is the most commonly used room in our house we placed ours in the corner. 

This Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp is just 6-8 lbs but it's perfect as a first purchase.  Even though it's small it still is big enough for ionization of a small bedroom.  Since our home is small the living room is a great place for it since that's where we have all our eletronic devices.  It is so beautiful when it glows and it certainly is a gorgeous piece of home decor! I have to say that I really feel more calm just by looking at it when it's lit up and I haven't been sneezing like I used to. Both me and James suffer from year round allergies and so do my doggies.

  1. I've seen these before, but I thought they were just decorative! Very interesting.

  2. a fellow cat blogger was telling me about these frankie my siamese has bad asthma and I need to get one thanks or the link and the article have a great day

  3. I have two of them and LOVE them! I also have the candle holders that they make...they are perfect because they fit tea lights so the animals can't get to them. Whether or not they help allergies, I am not so sure. I have had mine for a few years and I still have allergies lol, but they are GORGEOUS to look at! catchatwithcarenandcody

  4. I thought about getting one of these just based on how they looked, I never looked into what good they did. Ha! Now, I may have to look into getting one for our home as I suffer from asthma.

    1. They are sooo pretty and it seems to help me sneeze less haha and im not just saying that!

  5. I love Himalayan salt, you can get the lamps on, you can get credit for stuff you buy too!
