These Lamps are hand-carved from a larger salt crystal, the lamps give off an attractive glow and are suitable for use as night-lights or for ambient mood lighting.
Salt lamps give off negative ions that reduce indoor air pollution, enhance mood and promote restful sleep.
Ions are atoms or molecules that have gained or lost an electron. Both positive and negative ions exist in the air – negative ions attract particles of pollution and give them a negative charge, making them seek an electrical “ground”, causing them to fall harmlessly to the floor. Being surrounded by negative ions means better air quality.
Negative ions occur more often in nature, created by things like lightning storms, sunlight, waterfalls, and ocean waves. This is one of the reasons why we feel renewed or refreshed after a storm or after spending time at the beach. Positive ions are created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, etc and can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble.
Each lamp is unique in colour and appearance and they all come with a lamp fitting with power switch on a dimmer and a 15w light bulb. Dimensions can vary as each lamp is unique, however they are approximately 2.5kg in weight, 180mm in height and 140mm in diameter.
PLEASE NOTE: Salt lamps are hygroscopic-they absorb moisture from the air. It is important that your lamp stays on as much as possible so that it is warmed by the heat from the bulb. If you do not leave your lamps on for long periods of time (we recommend 24/7) your lamps can begin to “sweat” and cry salt. If you do decide to switch your lamp off, be sure to remove the lamp cord and bulb from inside the lamp to avoid moisture damage.
