    As you may imagine, purple is the colour here at Purple Sunrise HQ, and we have decided to restart a tradition from many years ago when we first opened online, way back in the late 1990's.

    When you next buy a quirky gift or beautiful home accessory, there may be a pack or two of our favourite little sweets inside as a small but tasty gift from us to you.

    Parma Violets are the sweet that divides opinion, there really is no in between. So which side of the fence are you on?  Do you love them, or, or or (being nice) love them not so much ?

    Salt lamps - What are they, why are they popular, and why do I want one?

    The Himalayan salt lamp has never been more popular, but why is that?

    First though, what is a Himalayan salt lamp ?

    They are, in effect, a lamp shade made from rough hewn natural rocksalt. Genuine Himalayan salt comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan, to the West of the Himalayan Mountains.

    The beautiful salt lamp colour comes from the inclusion of iron and over 80 other minerals within the salt crystal. The richer the iron content, the richer the pinks, oranges and reds appear in the crystal.

    Switching on the salt lamp creates a very pleasant, warm and cosy glow.

    The image shown is our 1.5 - 2kg Himalayan salt lamp, the most popular size we sell here at PurpleSunrise.com

    Why are Himalayan salt lamps popular today?

    Partly due to their perceived health benefits (more later), but also, it's because they are so photogenic and look fabulous on social media !

    Rock salt lights are very appealing and make eye-catching photos because they create a warm, inviting light that helps make you feel relaxed.

    Salt lamp health benefits (the beliefs)

    Salt lamps reduce the amount of positive ions in the air through the creation of negative ions which neutralise the air around us. It is thought that positive ions which are generated by everyday objects such as televisions, computers and mobile phones contribute to ill health, fatigue and stress.

    Why not try ...

    If you have a smaller space, try our USB Himalayan salt lamp, just the right size to place on your desk, plugged into a computer via the included USB lead. Make for a great gift
