What are Salt Lamps?

Identifiable by a look not common in any other type of lamp; the amber glow of a salt lamp can give any room a warm amber glow. Himalayan salt lamps are unique because the shape is different with every lamp and sizes vary too. However, they still use a light bulb like a traditional lamp and also include a dimmer switch.

In our opinion at, a traditional salt lamp is a great option. They give off the warm glow and still provide enough light which some alternatives such as rocks may not. While no salt lamp can completely fill a room with light, our largest 7-10kg salt lamp could be a great option to add a beautiful glow to the living room. Looking for something more like a reading light? The smaller 2-3kg salt lamp could work better for you.

What does Himalayan mean?

At Salt Lamps, the salt lamps have been carefully handmade using natural Himalayan salt. It is argued that this can help to purify the air by absorbing water molecules that are often found in rooms-- however this is debated and not conclusive as of 2022.

The Himalayas is where salt lamps traditionally originate from; hence why they are referred to as Himalayan salt lamps.
