Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp
The salt in these lamps come from the foothills of the Himalayas; the block of salt is shaped and then hollowed out inside to contain a bulb. These look beautiful when lit, they aren't strong enough to be a sole light source by themselves but they do give a lovely atmosphere. The base on which these stand on are made from wood and are screwed into the base of the salt block, there's a small gap to allow a cable through at the bottom.

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.

2-3 kg Lamp Dimensions: These have a height of roughly 16-17 cm (about 6-7 inches). The diameter of the wooden base is 8.7cm (about 3.5 inches).

Certification 
These lamps are CE certified and complies with the Electrical Equipment Safety Regulation 1994. We provide a 15 watt oven bulbs and a good quality cable to fit with the lamp (these use an on/off switch along the cable). Please note the colour of the cable may vary from the picture depending on what we receive at the time, these are usually either black or white. 

How to Use
When you receive your salt lamp, it will have the cable and bulb separately. To use, simply screw in the bulb, place under the lamp and squeeze the metal clip to put the bulb inside. Then simply plug into the wall and turn on. 

Please Note 
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). The lamp bulb heats the salt up and drives the water out again. 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. 

Salt Lamp Care Notes
Our salt lamps are intended for indoor use only. They are for decorative use only and should not be left turned on if unattended for long periods. Keep the lamp away from excessive moisture of humidity (e.g. Cellars, Kitchens etc.). 

To replace the bulb: Turn the lamp off at a mains outlet. Unscrew the fitting from metal collar - do not pull cable. We recommend using a 15W E14 Pygmy "oven" bulb. If the external flexible cable or cord of this luminaire is damaged, please notify us immediately. 

Clean using a damp cloth only, do not apply cleaning products or immerse in water. 

The lamp might exhibit "sweating" on the surface - moisture is absorbed from the atmosphere by the salt and driven off again by the warmth of the bulb - a normal process that drives the air purification effect of the lamp. Please note that moisture from the lamp may mark the surface the lamp is resting on.

    I ordered two

    Posted by Dee, Berkshire on 27th Sep 2016

    I ordered a lamp for my husband and one for my daughter. I guessed at the size needed for the individual bedrooms. My husband quite liked the lamp once it was turned on and I am hoping that it does have some effect on his sleep. Info re how much exposure a person should have to this lamp for it to have an effect would be useful. I have yet to give my daughter hers. Delivery was very quick. I had to check on the website to make sure the bulb was put in correctly as there was no information with the lamp or details about it.

    Looks amazing

    Posted by Evelyn, UK on 17th Feb 2016

    When putting the light into the lamp the first time, it looked as if it did not fit all the way in and therefore could not stand up properly. We took it out and screwed the light back in and it fitted perfectly. Besides our little conundrum at the start, it looks amazing and arrived very quickly too. Overall, extremely pleased with this salt lamp! Thank you
