Natural Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp 1.5kg - 2kg
Himalayan salt lamp 1.5 - 2kg
Our larger Himalayan rock salt has a natural pink colour which, when lit up from the inside, changes to a warm orange / pink glow. The light is eye-catching, interesting, and creates a lovely atmosphere.
These larger 1.5kg - 2kg salt lamps use a normal plug socket and come complete with the wire lead and a light bulb too.
How Himalayan salt lamps are believed to work:
1) Himalayan natural crystal salt lamps are believed to create negatively charged ions in the air. This is a good thing because modern day pollution and electrical equipment create positive ions in the air which are potentially harmful to us and cause air quality in areas affected to deteriorate.
By using a Himalayan salt lamp you replace the negatively charged ions in the air which help us to avoid the alleged physical and mental harm that the ‘electric smog’ creates.
2) Rock Salt is hydrophilic (it attracts moisture), so the lamps attract water molecules from the air, drawing dirt, pollen, and smoke particles which are carried in water vapor.
Occasionaly wipe the salt lamp with a dry or slightly damp cloth to remove the dirt particles.
Why is Himalayan Salt Pink?
Normal table salt is just sodium chloride. Himalayan salt is still about 98% sodium chloride, but also contains trace minerals like magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
It is these naturally occurring extra minerals that give Himalayan salt it's distictive and appealing colour.
