4 tips when shopping for a himalayan salt lamp
Posted on October 19 2021,
Placing an authentic Himalayan salt lamp in your home or workspace is sure to improve your quality of life. These unique lamps bring you all the health benefits of visiting a therapeutic salt cave, with the added convenience of enjoying those benefits right in your home. These salt lamps can ease symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, allergies, asthma, and many other conditions. They can help you look and feel great all the time. But to fully reap all these benefits, it’s important to choose the right salt lamp. They are not all the same.
Here are some considerations to keep in mind when shopping for a Himalayan salt lamp.
1) The Shape
When it comes to choosing the right shape for your Himalayan salt lamp, it’s simply a matter of personal style. There is plenty of variety. You can find blocks, spheres or pyramids. If you prefer something with a simpler and more natural appearance, there are plenty of these, as well. And of course, there is always the option of a quaint candle holder shape for your lamp if you want something simpler and more old-fashioned. No matter which shape you choose, the health benefits are the same. You just want to choose the shape that best compliments your existing decor.
2) The Size
Again, this is mostly a matter of personal taste; but it’s also important to consider what size lamp can maximize its health benefits. Of course, the larger the lamp, the more negative ions it will produce, so any benefits will be more noticeable with a larger lamp. If you really want to get the most out of your Himalayan salt lamp, a giant or a mountain size is really the best option, especially if you want to place it in a large room. But if that doesn’t suit your style, even a small salt lamp is better than none.
3) The Number
Depending on the size of the room, you may decide you’d like more than one Himalayan salt lamp in that space. A 12-15 kilogram lamp is sufficient to light 210 square feet of space. But if you only need to light 50 square feet, a micro lamp of 1-2 kilograms is enough. If you have a space that’s larger than 50 square feet, but you still prefer a micro lamp, then purchasing several of them to place around the room is a great option that lets you maximize the health benefits of the lamp without compromising your sense of style.
4) The Colour
Salt lamps come in a variety of natural colours: white, pink, orange, red, or a mix. The color variations are caused by the infusion of iron in the salt. With more iron, the colors appear richer and deeper. The iron infusion does not affect the quality of the lamp, or its release of negative ions. White Himalayan salt has the lowest iron content. It’s less common than other colors, so it might cost more. Pink is more common. It’s a soothing color that promotes clarity and creativity. Yellow salt lamps are best for boosting our energy and easing migraine headache symptoms.
With so many choices available, you will have no trouble finding the perfect Himalayan salt lamp just for you.
