Salt Lamp F.A.Q.

Following are the common Salt Lamp ٖFAQ we receive from our customers and visitors to our website. Although we hope these will be of some help, if not please don’t hesitate to ask us.

Himalayan salt lamps are natural air purifier and work in a very similar way by removing the pollution, germs, bacteria, dust and positive ions present in the air. Apart from that salt lamps won’t get dust on them and will never get dirty, they will be an elegant addition to your home décor and will also provide you with a soothing sleep.

The following bulletin describes the operation of a Himalayan salt lamp:

  • When you turn on the salt lamp it heats up and starts absorbing the moisture of the air
  • Moist salt crystals then cause an ionic field around the crystal
  • That way salt lamp starts emitting the negative ions
  • These negative ions clash with the harmful positive ions in the environment and reduce their effect. Hence more the number of negative ions, the more soother, and the cleaner environment

Benefits from salt lamps include:

  • Reduce the stress and fatigue
  • Improve the concentration and focus
  • Help in reducing the symptoms of sinusitis, bronchitis, allergies, asthma and other respiratory health issues
  • Mitigate the effects caused by SAD (Season Affected Disorder) and other mood-related problems
  • Provide relief from migraines & other types of a headache
  • Enhance the environment quality by reducing the positive ions, pollution, bacteria & viruses present in the air.

No, it’s not a compulsion to keep your salt lamp turned on all the time. However, for the best results, we recommend that you should keep the salt lamp running for the maximum period of time. By doing so, it cleans and ionizes the environment throughout the day and night. But, you should not leave the salt lamp running if you are:

  • Not going to be present in the room for a longer period of time
  • Leaving the house for a considerable amount of time
  • Leaving the salt lamp unattended for quite a long period. 

Like any other electrical device, it is not recommended to leave the device turned on unattended for a longer period of times.

However, it is very advantageous to keep the device turned on while sleeping. And it is one of the most effective ways to reap the full benefits of a Himalayan Salt Lamp. This will keep your bedroom’s environment clean and soothing with an aroma that’s similar to a thunderstorm. Moreover, the salt lamp emits the negative ions that keep the air purifier and refreshes the body. It also keeps the mood calm and relaxes so you can enjoy a deep & comfortable slumber

Most of the times, No. These days Himalayan salt lamps use a bulb that barely uses any electrical energy. The wattage of these bulbs hovers around 6 – 15 watts which are insignificant and immaterial when compared with the electricity consumption of your daily appliances. Only extra-large salt lamps use bulbs that consume around 40 – 50 watts. So, if you are not sporting an extra-large salt lamp, you won’t be seeing any significant increase in your electricity bills even if you keep the salt lamps turned on 24/7. 

It’s not a rocket science to use a Himalayan salt lamp. Just plug in the lamp and turn the switch on and you find the lamp UP & Running. A piece of cake? Isn’t it?! And all these questions & answers are making the picture clearer that how to use this great wonder of nature? 

It totally depends on your needs and preferences. You can put it anywhere you want according to your liking, however, there are some generally recommended placements:

Living Room: That’s the place where you live! So it will be most beneficial to place the lamp in your living room as most of the family will be there for most of the time. Apart from that, normally televisions are present in living rooms. So a salt lamp would be very helpful in getting rid of positive ions emitted by your TV and keep the environment healthy.

Bedroom: Bedrooms are meant to be calm and healthy. A salt lamp will provide you with both the qualities in a very efficient manner. It will reduce all the dust particles, bacteria, viruses and other air pollution and will give you a clean soothing environment. That means, the negative ions will ensure that you feel fresh every moment and enjoy a deep sound sleep.

Close to A Child: A young baby will gain many health advantages from a salt lamp placed close to him.

Close to A Person Suffering From Allergy: Any person who is suffering from allergy, pollen, cigarette smoke, air pollutants, animal fur etc. can get considerable help from a salt lamp in reducing their symptoms. People suffering from a migraine or asthma can also benefit from a Himalayan Salt Lamp.

So, put it anywhere you want, put it anywhere you need. That’s a bottom line!

Please do not place the Himalayan Salt lamp where there is an excessive amount of moisture in the air. For example the balcony or bathroom. And also avoid placing your lamp on top of any electrical appliances or equipment including CPUs, monitors, and Televisions.

As a rule of thumb, a bigger salt lamp will effectively ionize a bigger space, hence the following guide will make your decision easier:

If the area of space required to be ionized is around 20 square meters – Salt lamp weighing 2 – 3 kg (4.5 – 6.5 lbs.)

  • 30 square meters – Salt lamp weighing 3 – 4 kg (6.5 – 8.5 lbs.)
  • 45 square meters – Salt lamp weighing 4 – 6 kg (9.5 – 12.5 lbs.)
  • 70 square meters – Salt lamp weighing 7 – 10 kg (15.5 – 21 lbs.)

There is no reason to worry, it’s quite a common occurrence. This usually happens when a humidifier or water fountain is placed near the Himalayan salt lamp and the amount of water circulating in the air is more. If you don’t like the salty taste on your lips then simply remove the humidifier or water fountain from that place.

Most of the times, No. These days Himalayan salt lamps use a bulb that barely uses any electrical energy. The wattage of these bulbs hovers around 6 – 15 watts which are insignificant and immaterial when compared with the electricity consumption of your daily appliances. Only extra-large salt lamps use bulbs that consume around 40 – 50 watts. So, if you are not sporting an extra-large salt lamp, you won’t be seeing any significant increase in your electricity bills even if you keep the salt lamps turned on 24/7. 

The answer is NO. You just need to treat with care your Himalayan salt lamps. They will not have any effect on their size, color, shape, weight, and ionizing prowess.
