These mini salt lamps are much smaller versions of our 'rough' himalayan salt lamps that we sell. A block of salt is shaped and then hollowed out slightly inside to contain an LED light. They use a USB cable which can fit most computers or USB adapters; they aren't strong enough to be a sole light source by themselves but they give a lovely atmosphere and are ideal as desk decorations! Because these are fitted with an LED light, unlike our normal 'larger' salt lamps which contain a bulb, the LED in most cases should never have to be changed.
A theory behind salt lamps suggests that as the lamp heats it, it gives off negative ions into the air which have health benefits. (There is some debate about this, however some studies have shown low levels are given off).
The sizing of these lamps is pretty constant, but you will find that their shape and colouring can differ, the quality is always constant.
Lamp Sizing: They have a rough height of 11-12 cm. The diameter of the wooden base is approximately 7cm. (Please note these are much smaller than our standard rough salt lamps.
Salt crystal lamps are made from salt crystal rocks, formed over hundreds of millions of years and mined over 800 feet under the foothills of the Himalayas.
As the lamp warns up, healthy negative ions lift off from the surface to help cleanse and improve the quality and freshness of the air you breathe.
Claimed Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt can include:
- Attracting Humidity
- Removing moisture from the air (salt lamps are naturally deliquescent, i.e. they can absorb moisture from the air).
- Neutralizing the 'electric pollution' in the air
- Help to create a soothing effect
- Aiding with sleep
- Helping to improve mood.
Instructions for Use
Only use the salt lamp indoors. To clean the salt, please use a dry or slightly damp cloth to remove any dust or dirt. Please ensure it is unplugged before cleaning.
One of the main physical properties of these lamps is that they are deliquescent (i.e. they have a tendency to absorb moisture from the air). We recommend using the lamp fairly frequently, if it is not regularly lit up it can continue to absorb water and can start to crumble. This can happen more often in places where there's likely to be more water such as from condensation next to windows, conservatories or bathrooms.
