Hi Nancy, I’ve read a comment of a lady who advised that When not using the lamp for long periods of time, don’t leave your lamp in a humid room, as it attracts moisture from the air (as part of its function) and it began to weep all over her furniture. I have also read a recommendation of Himalayan salt lamps manufacturer that recommends placing your Himalayan salt lamp onto a decorative plate or holder to avoid it leaving marks on furniture. The manufacturer also recommends that if you plan on having your lamp switched off for an extended period, he recommends unplugging the power cord, separating the cord from your salt lamp, and wrapping the salt lamp in a plastic bag to keep it air tight. This will prevent the lamp from pooling water.
A few isolated studies have shown modest and equivocal effects from negative ionization. For instance, in 1981, researchers at the University of Surrey in England looked at the incidence of stuffiness, nausea, dizziness and headaches in people in an office environment. They found office air had fewer negative ions than is typical outside. So the team conducted a double-blind study and found that the reintroduction of ions reduced the incidence of these symptoms over a 12-week period. The findings were published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology. A 1993 study published in the Journal of Human Ergonomics found that negative ions could slightly affect people's circadian rhythms, although they had no impact on anxiety or exercise levels. https://thesaltlampstore.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Home3.jpg
rubbing alcohol kills those suckers FAST! You have to be careful because rubbing alcohol is flammable but it is highly effective. Our downstairs neighbor in our old apt. building had a nest of bedbugs he never bothered to get rid of and they spread through our building. We ended up with an infestation ourselves which two visits from an exterminator was not able to eradicate. I was desperate and at the end of my rope when I started trying all different types of chemicals, pledge, windex, you name it.. nothing really worked until I spilled rubbing alcohol on my bed by accident. Next thing you know, they were avoiding that side of the bed… I started spraying the mattress every night before bed (leaving the room until the fumes settled). problem solved! We’ve since moved and not a single one made it to our new place, THANK GOD!

The imbalance between the demands on all of us arising from our work, family, friends and environment are taking a toll not only on our physical health but are affecting our mental and emotional health. As a result our body experiences stress and anxiety. Depending on the level and extent of stress, a number of affects can influence a person, including: http://www.norlatifah.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/cat-hugging-salt-lamp.jpg
The strongest evidence supporting any benefit of negative ions is as an antibacterial agent. A 1979 study in the journal Nature showed that high levels of negative oxygen ions could kill bacteria. Ionizers could also reduce the prevalence of surface and airborne bacteria in refrigerators, according to a 2009 study. However, that research applied only to sanitizing food or work surfaces, and did not make any claims about health benefits.

Hi Alex, Himalayan salt lamp is a type of rock salt lamp – they are made from salt crystals from the Himalayan mountain regions and come in variety of shades such as white or orange/pink. There are other rock salt lamps that come from a number of other locations throughout the world (although some claim that the finest quality comes from the Himalaya). https://thumbs.dreamstime.com/b/salt-lamps-tile-natural-famous-all-over-world-their-unique-beautiful-light-emit-colorful-apricot-yellow-orange-83749701.jpg

Within a few days of turning the lamp on, I started to feel lighter and calmer. Soon, I’d see an easy kill, like a spinster librarian hurrying home in the rain, and just check her out; not try to murder her. It’s so nice to be able to go to get through those long stressful workdays, knowing I won’t need to go out and murder on my lunch break just to cope – all thanks to this simple cute lamp! https://www.wikihow.com/images/thumb/b/ba/Use-Himalayan-Salt-Lamps-Step-7.jpg/aid8266992-v4-728px-Use-Himalayan-Salt-Lamps-Step-7.jpg
By having a salt lamp in your home you can reduce the presence of positive ions in the air while increasing the amount of negative ions. They cut down greatly on the harmful, silent, and unseen effects electronics have on us that are all too often overlooked. There you have it, salt lamps are the easiest way to make the air you breathe cleaner and they instantly create a more relaxing environment. Here’s some additional health benefits people report experiencing after using the lamps, they include help with; https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1202/6070/products/416-HAL-001_1024_1024x1024.jpg?v
[…] Many natural living advocates claim that the negative salt ions that are released by heating the salt can boost blood flow, improve sleep, increase levels of serotonin in the brain, and calm allergy or asthma symptoms. It has also been said that the negative ions are known to neutralize electromagnetic radiation from household electronics, as well as prevent the build up of static electricity. (source) […]

Himalayan rock salt itself can reduce cholesterol and blood pressure, and contains 84 trace minerals essential to your health. Also, Himalayan salt regulates the water content in your body, promotes a healthy pH, regulates sleep, helps to keep your bones strong, and much more. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Himalayan salt lamps also have numerous health benefits.
I bought this salt lamp to help my allergies. The lamp was heavier and bigger than I expected, which I liked. The shape is really pretty and different than the typical ones I see in the stores. The only con was the bulb was missing, but I emailed the company at the address in the brochure and they shipped a new bulb to me right away. Great customer service. https://althealthworks.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/salt-lamp.jpg

Real Himalayan salt lamps are made of salt so it’s not surprising that they’re fragile objects. A good manufacturer knows this and has return policies that are flexible since there could be some damage in transit. If a salt lamp’s maker is extremely strict (like a “NO RETURNS” policy), then it makes you wonder if it’s a scam operation. This might not necessarily be the case, but some fake retailers have been known not to permit any returns because they know they’re not giving you the real thing. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1546/3501/files/how-to-care-for-himalayan-rock-salt-lamps-550.jpg?v

One of the health detriments of breathing lots of positive ions in the air is that the cilia (microscopic hairs) which line the trachea (aka: windpipe) become sluggish and don’t work as well to keep contaminants out of our lungs. As a Himalayan pink salt lamp absorbs water and particles from the air, it also takes positive ions with them. Then, when the heated salt releases cleansed water vapor back into the air, it also expels negative ions which have the opposite effect on our airways – increasing cilial activity to keep your lungs clear.

In January of this year, Michael's issued a recall on some of their salt lamps sold under the Lumière brand. Rest assured, the issue and recall had nothing to do with the Himalayan salt itself but reported hazards with the dimmer switch and plug. If you’re looking to purchase a lamp, talk to the retailer and make sure it has been assembled properly and that the piece you’re interested in was not included in the recall. https://www.greenlifestylemarket.com/pub/media/catalog/product/cache/f073062f50e48eb0f0998593e568d857/l/a/large_salt_lamp.jpg
So Well Himalayan salt lamps do not generate negative ions themselves. They are “hygroscopic,” which means that they attract moisture… humidity… airborne water molecules; it is a natural property of sodium chloride (hygroscopy). Since they do not generate the negative ions, they need a heat source (in this case, heat from an incandescent bulb) to accelerate evaporation, which does produce negative ions. In more humid regions, an unlit salt lamp will eventually “cry,” even creating puddles of water at its base. It is this evaporation that generates the negative ions, which are beneficial to our health.
So yes, they’re beautiful, and you’re totally welcome to get one for that purpose. It’s just unlikely to provide any measurable medical benefits. But if you want one to add to your meditation routine or because it fits with your decor, go for it. “It’s a nice new-age prop to have,” Kogan says. “But also we have to be smart and not fall prey to marketing claims.” http://himalayansaltlampguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Do-salt-lamps-really-work-what-does-a-salt-lamp-do.jpg

A large block of salt, like a pink Himalayan salt rock crystal, works by attracting the water molecules in your room. In so doing, it also pulls in all the pollutants and contaminants attached to these molecules. The salt rock lamp helps to detoxify your room by capturing and holding these particles so they aren’t left floating around for you to breathe in. Then, as the bulb heats the lamp, the water vapor is released back into the air, but the rock salt lamp retains the contaminants. http://thespiritscience.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/9720a2a492d9f4bdce80d93316b67dbf-672x372.jpg

EDIT: After a bit more research it seems the manufacturer may have changed the dimmer to a safer version recently. Here is a picture of mine for reference. If your dimmer has these markings it is the version that is faulty and will burn up. The little thing next to the cover is the transistor that burned up. It used to have three terminals but the other one disintegrated.
A large block of salt, like a pink Himalayan salt rock crystal, works by attracting the water molecules in your room. In so doing, it also pulls in all the pollutants and contaminants attached to these molecules. The salt rock lamp helps to detoxify your room by capturing and holding these particles so they aren’t left floating around for you to breathe in. Then, as the bulb heats the lamp, the water vapor is released back into the air, but the rock salt lamp retains the contaminants.
Salt is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs water. This is why Himalayan pink salt crystals start to melt with prolonged exposure to high humidity. Thus, you should keep them away from household moisture sources like showers, dishwashers and laundry washing machines. It can be dangerous if the salt begins leaking onto the lamp holder. To avoid buying a substandard lamp holder, purchase a salt lamp that’s firmly connected to the base. It’s also ideal to find a salt lamp that has UL certification, which is an extra measure of safety assurance. (11)
When it comes to buying Himalayan pink salt lamps, coverage is determined by the size of the crystal. Smaller lamps (like this 5-8 lbs lamp) are good for the average bedroom, while larger lamps (like this 11-15 lbs lamp) are better for spaces like the living room or den. On average, calculate that 1 lb of Himalayan salt crystal will cleanse the air in approximately a 4′ x 4′ area. https://www.evolutionsalt.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/500x500/358cc0f66409674f5f4d301046e4502c/e/p/eplr-01.jpg
When it comes to buying Himalayan pink salt lamps, take into consideration the size of the room in which you wish to use your lamp. The coverage of a salt lamp is determined by the size of the salt crystal. For the average-sized bedroom, a smaller lamp is usually adequate, but if you’re looking to use it in a larger area like your living room, you want to go bigger. On average, to effectively cleanse the air of a space, you need one pound of salt rock for every 16 square feet (four feet by four feet) area. If needed, you can always use multiple salt lamps spread out in a single room.
Himalayan salt is now used in inhalers to bring relief to asthma and allergy sufferers. Salt therapy is also used to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. COPD is a debilitating and degenerative lung disease characterized by the restriction of airflow in and out of the lungs. According to the Lung Institute, “Some people have found salt therapy to be an effective option for relieving symptoms of lung disease, resulting in easier breathing.” https://i.pinimg.com/736x/79/e8/56/79e8568bad6052f44f89cb6a28211632--rock-lamp-himalayan-salt-lamp.jpg
The unique salt lamp is made from natural salt crystals hand mined in the Himalayan mountains. Once lit the lamp will emit a calming amber color heating the salt with the included bulb releases negative ions into the air, creating an effect similar to an ionize and purifying the surrounding air. Due to the natural variation in crystal salt, weight, size, color, and shape may vary. https://d2rd7etdn93tqb.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/himalayan-salt-lamp-bed-bath-and-beyond-012617.jpg
Enjoy the best convenient night light, and have a good night sleep. This night lamp can be used as a gentle nursery night light or to keep dark hallways lit with dim soothing light and for creating a calming ambiance. These night lamps emit electromagnetic waves which help to deal with stress and anxiety. That results to boost your energy and improve mood. https://static.shareasale.com/image/59857/HSS300x250b.jpg
 As discussed above, “boundless amounts” of negative ions would be a bit of a stretch, given the total and complete lack of any ions generated by our lamp. Ignoring that fact, however, brings us to the claim that positive ions make us feel bad and negative ions make us feel great. In terms of effects on mood, there is some research that suggests that negative ions can play a role in the treatment of seasonal affective disorder. A 1998 study in JAMA psychiatry found, for example, that:
Himalayan salt lamps purify the air through hygroscopy. The salt lamp attracts water from surrounding areas and absorbs the water vapor molecules along with any particles that those molecules may be carrying. The light inside of the lamp helps the salt to warm up, making that water evaporate back into the air while the unwanted, foreign particles stay trapped inside the salt. Science is pretty neat, am I right? https://image.slidesharecdn.com/7tipstoidentifyfakehimalayansaltlamps-161213103834/95/7-tips-to-identify-fake-himalayan-salt-lamps-2-638.jpg?cb
Another awesome ability negative ions have is they can bond together with positive ions and by doing so, they neutralize them. This is beneficial to us because positive ions do not have a positive effect on the human body. Positive ions are created and emitted by electronic devices, such as TVs and microwaves. They are harmful and unhealthy for us and while many people are minimally affected by them, others experience allergies, headaches, stress, and sleep issues from them. http://cdncz.healthfreedoms.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/salt-lamp-7.jpg
The Himalayan pink salt lamp lets off this beautiful pink/orange glow that is reminiscent of a sunset. Just as the blue light is energizing, the slower wavelengths in the warmer colors are relaxing to the mind and easier on the eyes. I think about it like the difference in the natural energy cycle at high noon and at sunset. The salt lamp is great for balancing the extra blue light. http://www.himasaltlamps.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/size2.jpg
