Himalayan Ionic Crystal Natural Salt Lamp
I saw one of these while waiting for a massage appointment at Glen Ivy in Brea and I was instantly intrigued.
“That’s so cool…what is it? I bet it’s expensive. I want it for my bathroom…”
The lamp is made from salt crystals from the Himalayan Mountains. Unlit, the crystal’s rough-hewn, irregular surface looks pink. When lit with the included 15-watt bulb, it gives a warm amber glow. You can even change the color of the bulb to give a different hue to the lighting area. Use the lamp as a gentle nightlight, or to create a romantic mood. Whether in a child’s room, near the television or computer, or in your office, the lamp, sitting on its round neem base, provides a natural touch.
In addition to just being awesome, it purports to being a “natural air purifier”
When lit, the lamp emits negative ions that fight against positively charged particles that cause you to feel stuffy and sluggish. The lit salt crystal clears the air naturally of allergens like smoke, pet dander, pollens, and other air pollutants. It dilutes odors so that you can breathe easier. People with asthma often find it helpful in reducing their symptoms. You can keep the lamp lit for as long as you like to maintain this purifying effect.
I just think it’s unique. Here’s what it looks like when it’s turned off. Still pretty! :)
