Have you seen these Himalayan Salt Lamps everywhere lately? Me too, I’ve always thought they looked so pretty and stunning and I have always wanted one. But, I didn’t know where to start, where to buy them, etc… plus I always thought they would be very expensive. I was browsing Amazon the other day and I thought I’d take a look at the lamps to see how much they retail for and I was very surprised that they were actually pretty affordable. On Amazon UK they range from about £10 upwards, there are different sizes and different weights available.
I bought mine from a company named Magic Salt and I think it is 3-6kg lamp which I paid JUST £11.86. It was like one of the cheapest lamps on Amazon UK but it has really surprised me. I thought for that price I wouldn’t be sent a genuine Himalayan Salt Lamp or that it would be really shitty quality but it’s absolutely stunning. It’s good quality, well made and it is also a good size too and quite heavy. AND it is made with actual real salt. Yeah, I had to lick it just to be sure. LOL. My lamp came boxed, well wrapped and a small bulb for inside the light was included. It also arrived two days after ordering too, delivered by Royal Mail, so pretty quick delivery. the height of my lamp is 8.5 inches and the width is 5-6 inches.
About Himalayan Salt Lamps:
Himalayan Salt Lamps or HPS lamps are large pieces of pure Himilayan Salt mined from Northern Pakistan with a small bulb fitted inside. Each lamp is unique in its own way and no two lamps are the same in appearance. Reported health benefits of Himalayan Salt Lamps include improving breathing problems and reducing allergies, increased relaxation and calmness and reducing stress. They apparently improve the ability to concentrate more and work for longer periods around electrical equipment like computers. I’ve also heard it can help to ease anxiety which is something I suffer with as well as soothing psoriasis and eczema.
Now this may sound really strange and you’re welcome to think I’m bonkers but I have my salt lamp on my desk and as I’m writing this and I can feel like a warm relaxing sensation on one side of my face and on my arm closest to the lamp, I have touched the lamp to see if it’s radiating heat but it is stone cold. What’s all that about! I’m hoping it’s good energy or something, how awesome would that be, either that or I’m having a stroke or something. Ha.
UPDATE: Duh, twenty minutes later and the lamp has started to warm up now and is radiating heat. My bad!
I’ve not felt any major heath benefits just yet, I do feel calm and relaxed right now but who knows if it is because of the lamp. I will update this post once I have given it a fair trial. I would literally be over the moon if it could help to improve my psoriasis symptoms and ease my anxiety. We shall see, hey.
I bought this with my own money.
