I am a fan of salt rock lamps. My mom has had one for years. It’s something that is not only beautiful to have in home, but is also beneficial for you. The ways that it can be beneficial to you are also personal. Or example, I find the light very soothing and relaxing, where others may not even care about it. Sometimes things that are very beneficial to your wellbeing are more of a personal choice. I received this salt lamp from Skullis in their smaller size. This lamp can range anywhere from 3 – 4.5lbs in size. They do also offer it in a larger size, 6-11lbs. What I really appreciate, is that when my light arrived, they had also included 3 bulbs with it. It only uses 1 bulb, but now I have two for back up. The bulbs are 15 watt bulbs. I want to see if I can find a LED alternative. Since they packed it so well, all three bulbs worked upon arrival as well. In matter of fact, the entire lamp was wrapped really well. I had to use scissors to cut off the saran wrap type wrapping protecting the salt lamp itself. This unit uses a traditional house plug. It is American 2 prong plug as well. The salt lamp is a natural Himalayan salt lamp. The color when the lamp isn’t on is a darker orange/pink. Salmon may be the more correct way to call the color. Since it is a natural product, the color may vary. When the lamp is on, the entire salt lamp glows a brighter hue. It is so gorgeous on. You can determine the brightness level too. There is a dimmer on the cord approx.. ¼ of the way down the cord. Now, the salt rock is separate from the lamp base. Screw on the light bulb, and plug in the base. Then, carefully rest the salt rock on top of the light bulb. There is obviously a hole cut out of the center, bottom of the salt rock to accommodate the bulb. For all of you thinking, what the heck does this lamp do, this is from the ad page directly: “Natural Himalayan salt lamp will absorb moisture from the air, and then evaporated to release negative ions. It can play a role in purifying the air, called natural ionic air purifiers”. I obviously can’t measure what’s going on in the air when I use it, but Even my mom enjoys having one in her home, and she hates using electricity if she doesn’t have to, lol. They make a great accent light/night light as well. They are truly relaxing to have on in the evening. The warm glow is gorgeous, and knowing it helps your air makes it extra soothing, mentally. It does help the ambiance for the room for a romantic evening as well. After being on for hours, the light does not get hot to the touch. You can gran it with your palm fully embracing it, and it is only slightly warm to the touch. That is a great thing when you have pets and children in the home. You can feel safe with this on. Now, from past experience, my mom states that if you open your windows a lot, the humidity can eat at the salt block of the light. So, you might want to place it in a more non humid environment. We normally have the air conditioner on, but her air went out a few years ago, and experienced this with her Rock Salt Lamp, then. I absolutely love my Himalayan Salt Lamp. It’s a great addition to our home.
I received this product at a discount, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. – Skullis’ YYout Himalayan Rock Crystal Salt Lamp with Dimmable Switch, Electric Wire and Three 15W Bulbs, 3 – 5 lbs.
