Himalayan Salt Lamp

The Himalayan Salt Shop was founded in 2005 by Ernest Gaglione in the basement of a two family house in Bloomfield, NJ. Originally, Ernest had to lug his heavy inventory up and down steep basement stairs as he personally shipped each customer's order. As his company grew through hard work and perseverance, Ernest reached the point where he could afford a small office space in Parsippany, NJ. Ernest continued to expand by employing a fulfillment center to help with the shipping of orders. . .  to read more about Himalayan Salt Shop click here

I was sent a Himalayan Salt Lamp to review. I think this Salt Lamp is pretty awesome it also helps to cleanse the air that we breathe. They are actually beautiful when it is light up. I'll show pictures below. Here is a little bit of information how it works. These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base. This crystal salt is incredibly old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral  content. Heat from the bulb (in the lamps) or flame (in the candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions. These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them. Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground, removing them from the air circulation. In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home. Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products.

It's kind of easy to put together and insert everything in the hole in the bottom of the Salt Lamp, however make sure you go through everything in the box because I on the other hand missed a piece & my husband found it in the box, so you want to make sure everything is there and than proceed. Here is what the lamp looked liked when everything was finished :)

Pretty neat huh? I love it, it's so pretty, and you can pretty much use it for a nightlight in the house or whatever you want to do with it. I put mine in our living room. Everyone is always commenting on it.
