Himalayan Salt Rock Lamps

Special Mother Day Gifts Packof2 Himalayan Salt Table Lamps 5~7 Lbs

I got a set of these salt rock lamps for my birthday this year.  I would say that, price-wise, your best bet would be to order these salt rock lamps online.  I have found that specialty healing shops, etc. seem to overprice them and charge a lot.   Clicking the picture above will bring you to a set of two salt rock lamps that are available on Amazon.

If you know me, you know that I really like Himalayan salt rock home decor, whether it be lamps, candle holders, solid plates of it, etc.  The warm, rich color that the rock turns when illuminated is beautiful and there are supposed to be a multitude of health benefits associated with these lamps (though as far as I know, this has not been proven).  Besides offering a gentle glow to soothe and calm, these lamps are said to emit negative ions, which help with reducing dust, bacteria, pet odor, insomnia, idor, allergies, sinus issues, depression, migraines, anxiety, fatigue, colds, ADHD, and asthma [source]. 

These lamps are one of my most favorite things I have ever received.  I love the soft glow, the fact that they are a conversation piece in my home and office (I have one at home and one at work on my desk), the fact that no two are the same and just the way I feel when I look at them.  I definitely think I will have these lamps for many years to come.

Here is what my lamp looks like in my bedroom (at dusk). 
I keep it next to my fish, Magma, because I know he enjoys the soft glow.


  1. Wow. I am dreaming to have this kind of lamp. Your so lucky to have it. Himalayan lamp salt will help more to make our surroundings more romantic and comfortable. :)
