Himalayan Salt Reviews

Robert E.F.

My wife has been coughing for 5 weeks. She was unable to get a good night sleep and was taking different allergy, mucus,and nasal medications. My brother told us his daughter stopped coughing the first night they tried their Himalayan salt lamp. So I picked up 5 the next day. My wife purposely did not take her over the counter medicine as a test. She got her first nights sleep with out a single cough. I slept just as well with minimal allergy problems until I left the room where the salt lamp was, then my allergies got worse. I’m a believer.

I was looking on the Internet for something totally different for my husband’s birthday. I came across your site and knew at once he would love it. He does. And my friend loved it so much that I am giving one Himalayan salt lamp to her also. Thank your for your fine products.

Just wanted to let you know I love my Himalayan salt lamp! I have had it in my bedroom for over a week and no dust on the furniture! I also feel like I can breathe better! Thanks

Hello, I don’t normally write testimonials (like at all) but I really feel this products warrants doing so. If only one other person reads this and tries this amazing product and receives its benefits, then it was certainly worth my time signing up and commenting. This is my story: my grandmother is 90 years old and suffers from CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia). After giving her a 5lb Himalayan salt lamp that she keeps by right by her night stand and therefore her head and she says she can’t believe how much better she is feeling! She says she can breath better, and the blisters on her face from the leukemia are healing and drying up faster than before. She has and increased appreciate and increased energy. I am truly grateful and thankful I have found such an amazing product and ethical company. I will definitely be buying from them again!

Awesome! My skin feels and looks so much better after I purchase the Himalita’s bath salts and enjoyed my first mineral soak bath ever. I did some research on how to get rid of cellulite and this amazing product was featured, well I tried and lo and behold, it works! I mean the cellulite isn’t completely gone, but it was drastically reduced by the fourth week of my ritual Sunday bathing. I am definitely getting one for my mom. Thanks again!

I could not be happier. I have always wanted a salt lamp. I looked at many on the internet before choosing. This one looked fabulous and is quite stunning in person. Thank you for offering. And thank you for the incredibly speedy delivery!

I bought this for a gift exchange and I’m planning on trying to win it, and if I don’t I will be buying one for myself! Beautiful and a GREAT DEAL! Fast shipping, so happy with this purchase!!!!!!


Wow are these great! I got 3 and they were each a different hue from palest peach to almost red(that one looks like a glowing heart when a light) they are great , are holiday gifts and I will probably order more really awesome!!! Love them

This lamp was by far my favorite. It looks like a full moon and it’s soooooo pretty. It weighs like a bowling ball so you know it’s not just a hollow carving. I’ve seen less impressive lamps at shops going for ridiculous prices but these not only look better, the prices are great and the quality is fantastic. Pictures don’t do it justice. And this immediate calm when it’s glowing next to you is indescribably comforting. Extremely happy!

Its so beautifully crafted. Unfortunately because shipping companies aren’t very careful, my lamp was broken upon arrival but I got a response back right away and I’ll be receiving a new one soon. The glow is so soft and peaceful and I’ve already received so many compliments in my office. Keep up the great work! I’ll be back for Christmas shopping!

**update 11/18** Leave it to good ‘ol USPS to disregard a FRAGILE sticker and beat up my package 2 times before I finally received a complete lamp thanks to FEDEX! Felt so bad putting them through all the trouble of sending a new one each time but he did it with such kindness …. SUPERB customer service to go along with an amazing creation. You guys rock! (no pun intended! … ok maybe a little… I’m just so excited!)

Absolutely love my lamp that I got from Himalayan Salt Lamps. It came faster than expected, is absolutely beautiful, and a great size for a great price! I will surely be ordering more so that eventually there’s one in every room of our home.

Caro B.

My order arrived sooner than expected. Always a plus. The salt has a nice feel to it. It’s a beautiful peachy-pink tone that, when plugged in, gives off a pleasing calm glow I can definitely tell that it is conditioning the air. Only one small issue with the base – a screw had fallen as I was taking it out of the packaging.

Hollie M.

Beautiful and dealing- can feel a difference in our room where it sits on my nightstand. Might have to buy more for the whole house! Only downside was the lightbulb itself did not last long at all. I’ll just stock up so I don’t run out again. Thanks so much!

Maria D.

Yes it shipped on time..Did receive it with a chip on the bowl but we turned it against the wall..Bulb burned out the next day, got more works and looks great now..GREAT Value…

Jenn D.

Lamps were beautiful and when kit they have a very calming glow. They arrived within a week of my order and were packaged well. Thank you!

Tonya S.

Received my salt rocks today. I love them! It’s now time to put my mortar and pestle to use and make rock salt in the size *I* want/need. My sister-in-law is gonna hate me though. I didn’t think things through when I ordered a 1lb of rock. This is going to make a LOT of salt! lol Luckily she uses rock salt like it’s going to be declared illegal tomorrow. Bad thing is, she has her OWN mortar and pestle, so she gets to grind her own. lol

Thank you to Authentic Himalayan salt products for speedy shipping, GREAT packaging, and a wonderful product. I WILL be a return customer! Saving up for one of their lamps next. lol

John S.

I absolutely love this!! What impressed me the most is how the owner conducted business when part of my order was damaged during shipping. They were quick to respond and now I have beautiful gifts for my son and daughter.

Erica J.

they were so generous as to send FREE salt to make sole. I’m now drinking some every morning and am so grateful for the extra minerals in my diet. In regards to the lamp :: it was leaking water and I had to place a plate underneath to catch it. Turns out salt lamps do this when they are turned off, so now I leave my on all the time. It has stopped leaking and I love it.

Courtney P.

Extremely fast free shipping. Item was packaged well so it wouldn’t break. I love my salt lamp…I’ve waited years to buy one and i’m glad i waited until i found this shop. The bag of free organic salt was a huge bonus. Will recommend to others!

A.R. Jones C.

Not only did this arrive in RECORD TIME (Super FAST shipping), but it’s substantial and simply beautiful!! The bulb was ridiculously EASY to put in the lamp! It gives off a wonderful glow…and even the dog appreciates it (he walked by it on the low table, gave it a sniff and then a lick…which he NEVER does to anything…lol)!
I am excited to try the edible pink salt that came with the lamp! Thank you SO MUCH! I will be back!!

Health benefits of salt lamps

New Ionic Salt Lamps

People have different opinions of Himalayan Salt Lamps, calling them old age, new age, or anything in-between, but fact is, they are the latest, most exotic form of negative ion delivery systems in the holistic health community. Scientific studies show that a salt lamp installed in a home can provide incredible health benefits, especially for individuals suffering from sinus or bronchial conditions. Exposing oneself to these amazing Salt Lamps is often compared to inhaling rarified air at the top of a mountain, or breathing in the refreshing air following a storm.

History of Salt Therapy

Centuries ago, people often turned to mineral water, salt water, and salt mines to find therapies for chronic congestion problems. Individuals suffering from severe illnesses often found the distances quite prohibitive, which led to the establishment of clinics in different towns around the globe to make salt-based remedies accessible to them, in what is referred to as Speleotherapy rehabilitation. Salt has been used for generations to dry bronchial tubes and relieve sinus cavities of bacteria and micro organisms; and has naturally evolved to Himalayan Salt Lamp, which employs a low-wattage light bulb or candlewick to expend negative ions originating from the salt crystals.

Himalayan salt is considered as the most pollutant free salt on earth, containing about 84 useful minerals and trace elements. The salt is mines at extremely high altitudes, where there are no traces of pollution or even environmentally compromised materials in the air. Himalayan salt is very different from regular salt, which contains a mix of sodium, chloride, and other chemicals that cause the body to view it as a potential toxin, and subsequently attempt to eliminate it. Inorganic sodium chloride can interfere with fluid balance and even overburden the body’s faculties.

According to scientific reports, every gram of sodium chloride that the body is unable to process causes the body to use 23 times the amount of cell water to neutralize it. This is why people feel thirsty after taking excess refined table salt, resulting in excess fluid in the body tissue. This in turn contributes to a variety of medical conditions that make too much table salt unhealthy. Himalayan crystal salt, on the other hand, is readily metabolized by the body, which makes it ideal for cooking, baking, and seasoning food, except when one suffers from salt-induced high blood pressure, or kidney failure.

How do salt lamps work?

A salt lamp comprises a mass of mined salt that has been hollowed out to provide space for a tiny candle or light bulb. Salt crystals are mined in Central Europe, Russia, and the Himalayas, and then used to make salt lamps with attractive accent lights. The light glowing through the salt crystal medium can range in color from white to a dark salmon pink. While they have a splendid glow that infuses a natural calm bringing the body and mind to a gradual sense of serenity and wellbeing, their main attraction is the negative ions released by the crystal when the salt is heated.

Rock salt crystal lamps are scientifically proven to function as air purifiers; hence, their reference as nature’s air purifier. Heath from the light causes the salt lamps to emit negative ions that combat positively charged particles, which are responsible for making one feel stuffy and sluggish. It is important to note that salt lamps do not produce negative ions themselves. Instead, their hygroscopic property allows them to attract moisture, humidity, or airborne water molecules. A heat source is required to accelerate evaporation, and it is this evaporation that produces the negative ions that are beneficial to human health.

How do salt lamps work

Negative ions are considered healthy; the mountain air, sea air, and the air around running waters, such as waterfalls, is high in negative ions. Indoor air, air around electronic appliances, and re-circulated air is extremely low in negative ions, which is one of the reasons why many office workers suffer health complaints around computer monitors and fluorescent lighting. However, an increase in the concentration of negative ions in the air around the office considerably reduces reports of fatigue and headaches.

How negative ions can be beneficial is only partly understood. Studies have revealed that negative ions in the air bind with airborne pollutants, causing them to be denser so that they fall to the ground, making them unavailable for inhaling. Many modern air purifiers, commonly known as ionic air cleaners, employ this technique to provide cleaner indoor air for individuals who suffer from allergies. Other studies indicate that a surge in the concentration of negative ions in the air increases blood flow to the brain.

Health benefits of salt lamps

The objective is for the user or person in need of therapeutic effects to be exposed to as many negative ions as possible being emitted from one or several salt lamps. Some ways to achieve this include:

Use of salt lamps in living rooms, bedrooms, hallways or any other place where one want to create a cozy, relaxing, and serene atmosphere

Placing a Himalayan salt lamp near electrical equipment, like computer, to reduce fatigue and electro-magnetic pollution (EMF) created by such equipment. The lamp will not only offset the negative effects of electronic smog, but also enhance your concentration.

  • Strategically placed salt lamps can enhance Ki.
  • Can be used for yoga and meditation to enhance one’s meditative experience.
  • Can be placed in the massage room to enhance and create a relaxing, refreshing, and calming environment.
  • Can be used in a treating room to create a calming environment and assist in the healing process.
  • A crystal lamp placed in your vicinity will keep the air around you clean and ionized.
  • Negative ions in the air can relieve symptoms of allergies and asthma while neutralizing odors.

Physicians in the field of complementary medicine can use these salt lamps for color therapy, which is a great alternative for diagnosing and treating a variety of illnesses by balancing the individual’s energy. Color therapy can also be used to positively influence one’s mental state, mood, and energy level.

That said, the amount of negative ions that a salt lamp can release is dependent on its size and how warm the light bulb or candle can make it. Larger crystals are more expensive, but they can also supply a larger area with negative ions.
