It is created using rose pink coloured salt, contains a low wattage bulb, and distributed by a Fair Trade supplier. It will make an impact wherever you place it.
Salt lamps have become very popular recently due to their overall effect and alleged health benefits. Imagine the warm glow of a camp fire or an open fire in the grate at home and the light from the salt lights has a similar effect.
They also make pretty night lights for the bedside or in the corner of a room in which you want to generate a restful atmosphere.
Although the many health benefits are anecdotal rather than scientific people are buying these Himalayan salt lamps in increasing numbers. They are said to produce negative ions (which improve the mood by increasing the oxygen supply to the brain), reduce the effects of SAD (Seasonally Affected Disorder or the ‘Winter Blues’), filter the air of dust and pollen (so great for asthma sufferers), and generally have a mood enhancing effect due to the glow.
This model produces a steady light but you could use a plug-in dimmer. You might want to keep a few spare bulbs to hand too.
Of all the many hundreds of reviews this model has received the vast majority are short, five star reviews in which the buyer states that they think it’s very pretty, beautiful perhaps, and gives out the glow and warmth they were expecting.
So if the health benefits are real then this is not only a lovely night light, but also a room energizer that removes impurities from the air and creates a cleaner, healthier atmosphere.
