- These salt lamps are made of natural Himalayan 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 hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
- Heat from the bulb (in our salt lamps) or flame (in our 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

Why Buy Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan Salt has significant health benefits. It has been used for many years in Asia and Europe and has recently become popular here in the United States. You should buy Himalayan salt if you want a natural alternative to regular table salt. Your average table salt has additives like an anti-caking agents and it goes through a bleaching process to make its color whiter. Himalayan salt does not have these additives and does not go through any bleaching process. Its natural color is the pink hue that you see. Also, Himalayan salt is healthier for you because it possesses 84 trace minerals not found in ordinary table salt. These minerals provide additional nourishment to the body. You should also buy Himalayan salt if you wish to maintain youthful, healthy skin. Various skin ailments that are well-treated by Himalayan salt include dry skin, psoriasis, acne, insect bites, and blisters. It is also effective in treating joint pain. Yet another reason to buy Himalayan Salt is for the purifying of your indoor air. Himalayan salt lamps are chunks of Himalayan salt that are mined from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains then crafted into various shapes and sizes. A hole is then drilled into the bottom center of the rock where a light bulb is inserted. When the rock is heated by the warmth of the bulb, the salt naturally emits negative ions which help purify the air in your home by binding with the positive ions of pollutants like dust, pollen, dander, cigarette smoke and other allergens. These newly bonded ions then fall to the floor and out of your air circulation creating an environment for healthier breathing. Himalayan salt lamps also help combat electro-smog which is emitted by various electronic devices in the home like computers and televisions. So, there are many reasons to buy Himalayan salt and buying from the Himalayan Salt Shop guarantees that you get the highest quality salt. We appreciate your interest in our products.

Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps are made from chunks of salt crystal rock that are taken from the salt mines found in underground caves in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. The Himalayan salt lamp makes use of the minerals that have been preserved for millions of years, releasing their special properties through the introduction of heat from an electric bulb or from the flame of a candle. These special properties emitted from the Salt Lamp are responsible for promoting the health and wellness of individuals via ionization of the air and the eradication of pollution. The special properties Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps consist of negatively charged ions that act on the contaminants in the air by neutralizing them and weighing them down so they can no longer circulate. When this occurs, individuals can breathe more easily and many ailments and allergies that frequently afflict them begin to diminish.
Himalayan crystal salt lamps come in different shapes, sizes, and weights. Many prefer the natural shape salt lamps as they lend to the nature and the environment while encouraging good health. Others like to complement the aesthetics of their décor and choose the shaped varieties. The lamp can be made into a pyramid shaped Himalayan salt lamp, a globe shaped Himalayan salt lamp, a bowl shaped Himalayan salt lamp that contains small salt chunks within, or even a cross shaped Himalayan salt lamp.
Himalayan crystal salt lamps can also be used as a medium to alleviate several ailments and disorders. They can prevent allergy symptoms from surfacing and also help quell other illnesses such as Attention Deficit Disorder. A Himalayan crystal salt lamp also has a healing effect on the skin and even the mind encouraging concentration and focus.
A Himalayan crystal salt lamp is a natural ionizer. While it does ionize, it also does much more. A wider definition of a Himalayan crystal salt lamp is that it is an overall healing device helps promote the health and wellness of all individuals who use it.
The following is an excerpt from Clemence Lefevre's book Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps:
Imagine that you have in your possession a geological treasure that dates back millions of years - before mankind appeared - and holds the earth's secrets inside. Imagine that this jewel, which also holds the memory of the sea, is a tool for vitality an spiritual growth. This dream can now be reality thanks to crystal salt lamps, unique in their origin, age, and surprising powers of harmonization and revitalization.
Rock salt is found in deep deposits in many regions of the world, including France, Poland, and Persia to name just a few. If forms crystals when it is pressurized deep inside the earth. The Himalayan mountains are home to particularly old and lovely varieties of salt crystal, which are becoming increasingly popular around the world for use as table salt and bath salts, in addition to the much loved crystal salt lamps.
These blocks of rock salt crystal from deep in the Himalayan mountains have absorbed mineral elements that enrich them and give them their delicate tones. Unlike regular rock salt, which is extracted from industrial quarries that can reach over half a mile deep, Himalayan salt crystal is extracted by traditional methods that have been used for thousands of years.
So what is a crystal salt lamp? It is a block of crystallized salt that has been carved out from the inside, leaving a hole into which a light bulb has been inserted. All you have to do is plug it in - the way you do a bedside lamp - for it to give off its soft, calming light. This light aids relaxation and meditation and also helps energize your whole body. These specific effects owe little to mere chance, or to magic or religious powers; though crystal salt lamps display some astonishing qualities, they do so for perfectly concrete, well-identified reasons. Throughout this book we will see how and why crystal salt lamps work, so that everyone can profit from their beneficial effects.
You can say good-bye forever to stress, recurring migraines, feelings of tiredness, insomnia, excessive nervousness, and lack of concentration. Thanks to crystal salt lamps your home will become a source of energy, dynamism, and vitality that will continuously regenerate you. This most amazing tool for protection and harmonization is a work of nature, and through it, the natural world will become the absolute symbol of well-being for you. Your vital energy will be fully expressed at last. You will wake up in great shape, wanting to take a bite out of life.
Rock salt's protective powers have been known since earliest antiquity. It has been used continuously - not by chance, but because every civilization has understood the secrets of salt. Occult masters of old have put it to the test, feng shui practitioners have employed it, and researchers today are rediscovering it as medicine for the home (geobiology)and for alternative therapies. The rejuvenative powers of rock salt find their most perfect, sophisticated expression in crystal salt lamps.
Today, people are continually bombarded by harmful positive ions, whether they realize it or not. These positive ions are generated by diverse factors, including subterranean sources, Hartmann networks, and the vast increase in electrical appliances and power lines. The harmful waves produced by these networks can alter our health and disturb our mental dynamism, although we may not be aware of it. Crystal salt lamps offer a practical, unambiguous solution to these problems.
The rock salt that makes up each of these lamps, which are unique in form and color, was formed two hundred million years ago. Each vein and marbled surface is a wonder of nature; the variegated beauty of these lamps is a profound benefit. When they are turned on, the lamps give out a soft light that attracts our eyes and calms our nervous systems. They are wonderful for relieving stress and are therefore ideal aids in meditation and relaxation practices.
Crystal salt lamps can be set up in your place of work, your bedroom, a meditation area, or a living room. Once they are in place, you will see conflicts disappear as if by enchantment. You will feel yourself filled with a wonderful serenity that will lead you to more often do the right thing at the right time.

I want to tell you how pleased we are with your products! I just now ordered two more lamps! Not only do we feel they are helping our son with a TBI, but they bring such ambience to our home! Thank you!
- Melinda B.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such care to make things right with my recent order. The inhaler arrived very well protected. I am certain the extra attention made with the sturdier packaging along with the fragile label on the box helped. Probably more expensive to ship, but I believe it pays off.
I truly appreciate the replacement salt and Thank You for sending extra for the replaced inhaler as well. You are very kind and considerate.
I am most definitely letting my friends and clients know how wonderful your company is and the value of your Himalayan salt products.
Enjoy your holiday season and Be Well Friend!
- Tammy J.
I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your products—and again how much I appreciated your OUTSTANDING customer service when I was having trouble with the power cord for the salt lamp I keep in my office. Your willingness to send me a new cord was very impressive and I was very grateful for the quick and courteous response (which is, alas, so rare these days when dealing with most businesses).
Because I was so impressed with your superb customer service, I went back on your website to see what other products of yours I might want to try, and I decided to “treat” myself by ordering the 15-pound bag of the medium-grind Himalayan Bath Salts. They arrived very promptly, and I couldn’t wait to try them out.
Now this is where it gets interesting: All my life, I’ve been plagued (a very good word for it) with annoying skin rashes, which usually pop up when I’m under a lot of stress; they might be on my arm, or my back, or anywhere, and they itch like the devil. Unfortunately, in my job, there’s ALWAYS a lot of stress, so once one of these rashes (usually an area about the size of the palm of my hand) “takes hold,” it can take anywhere from several weeks to several months for them to go away—and that’s even with the application of a doctor-prescribed ointment that’s supposed to help, but doesn’t always do the trick. In fact, I’ve had one of these annoying rashes across my abdomen since about Thanksgiving; it never really gets significantly worse, but it never gets any better, either—it’s just there, annoying me all day.
When I received my order of your bath salts, I decided to treat myself to a bath that evening (I’m normally a “shower person,” to save time). I put about 1 cup of the bath salts in the half-filled tub (it would take an ocean to completely fill my bathtub) and soaked for about 25 minutes, because I read somewhere that you should soak in these salts for at least 20 minutes. It did seem like a wonderful bath, and I felt very refreshed afterwards, but I didn’t even think about it doing any positive to make that darn abdominal rash go away.
Imagine my amazement when I realized, about 24 hours later, that the rash was gone! It was as if it had “dried up”—and since I hadn’t done ANYTHING else differently (like changing jobs!), I can only assume that soaking in your bath salts somehow did the trick! I am totally amazed by this, and you can be assured that I’ll be buying more of those bath salts; that’s a bonus that I certainly never expected, because all I was looking for was a relaxing bath experience.
So thank you VERY much, and I will definitely be giving the highest recommendation of your products to all my friends!
- Sandy H.
I don't have a question but I would like to say thank you very much for a very good product and very good services. I love your products! All the testimonials are real and true and that was my deciding factor to order from you!
- Era W.
I am a return customer. We found your site on the internet. We received a salt lamp as a gift and fell in love with it and purchased 3 more. After seeing the salt inhaler on your site, I bought it and I love it!! In the past year I have tried all forms of treatment for clearing my respiratory system. I actually saw results after the second day!! I use it every day for 20 minutes. I love all your products that we have purchased. I still need to buy some more lamps so every room in my house will have salt lamps in them.
- Marriane B.
This company is fast, efficient, and has great products. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, thank you again!
- David C.
I must truly tell you it is helping me with my Lupus, surprisingly so! I was a skeptic but am now convinced of the power of the Himalayan Salt!
- Joan P.
Mr. Gaglione, I received my lamps today and they are all I had hoped they would be. I am extremely pleased and satisfied with the lamps you selected and shipped to me.
My daughter and son-in-law are interested in buying two or three more salt lamps for their house. I will definitely recommend the Himalayan Salt Shop to them.
- James S.
My order arrived today--thanks for the amazing fast shipment! All 4 lamps are gorgeous--from the lighter orange to the beautiful varied oranges to the deep orange, every single one stands out in their own way. Some are meant for gifts--but I will be having a really hard time parting with them!! I have lots of salt lamps in my home--when I expect evening visitors I always tell them to look for the orange glow coming from my place. I usually buy them in person--so this was kind of a test order to see what I would receive. Everything was great in this shipment--so I will order from you again.
- Joanna K.
I already own two salt lamps and I also bought one for each of my kids. This one is for my office! They are truly beautiful and I feel the "salt power"!
- Jane V.
For many years I have purchased extremely expensive ionizing air filters for my home as I have many allergies and love dogs…a fellow was doing maintenance on my air conditioner a couple of years ago and told me about salt lamps. Through a Google search I found your site and bought the small candle holder for my desk while my office was undergoing dusty renovation. It worked very well and I light it up every working morning. One of the fellows I work with also has bad allergies and takes pills, nasal sprays and shots and still is miserable. I sent him to your site and he bought one and is amazed at how well it works. Well, we just ordered your 6-8 pound four pack…he wants 2 more and he convinced a friend to try one…and I had to get one just because they are so pretty...and I like your story…thanks!
- Suzette D.
Himalayan Salt Shop, I just want to say “Thank You”. The replacement lamp you sent to me arrived yesterday safe and sound. You are a good company with great customer service who goes the extra mile. I have been telling all my friends about your quick response when I emailed you that one of the lamps I ordered arrived in two pieces. And all you asked me to do was to take a picture of the broken lamp, email the picture to you and you would send me a replacement which you did. I wish you continuing success.
- Arlene B.
I just received my beautiful Himalayan Salt lamp!!!! I had to take a picture of it and send it to you------even though you know what it looks like. It is massive!!!! I LOVE it!!! Also the Bowl of Fire is gorgeous!!!! Thank you sooooo much!!!! I love your products and your service!!!! Thank you so much!
- Kristin D.
Thanks again! And I have to tell you that everyone who sees my lamp LOVES it. I’m telling them the name of your company - hope it brings you new business. You certainly deserve it with the great service you provide. Take care.
- Jane V.
Dear Mr. G. I am so glad that I ran across this site. To make a long story short, I had asthma and COPD which hospitalized me from June of 09 through Nov.09. I had a friend that gave me a little sample of your Himalayan salt. For the first time in years I got to soak in a hot bath. I also very sparingly used some to boil on top of my stove and couldn't believe the difference. I was so sick, I lost my job and all my savings. As soon as I can get back on my feet, I plan on ordering all of your Himalayan salt products. I am taking every medicine you can imagine from the doctors. I've seen so many specialists, at Barnes Hospital, the leading hospital in Missouri. Nothing has helped me nearly as much as that little bit of salt in boiling water. The inhaler will be my first purchase. I can't wait. I also can't wait to tell my pulmonologist in St. Louis, MO all about your product - my friends too. May God Bless You. Thanks to you I can now take a bath without using inhalers or my oxygen. It's been close to five years since I have been able to soak without complications. You have given me hope.
- Brenda H.
My sister bought one of your candle holders for me as a gift for watching her animals while she was away. It was a practical gift since I suffer from allergies. I have to say I love it and notice a difference. Which is why I'm buying more! :)
- Mellisa B.
I am just back from 4 months overseas to find my beautiful new salt lamp, the nicest I have ever seen. Thank you again, and I will always recommend my friends to you for their salt lamp!
- Steve B.
I just can't believe how good I feel since I've been using the salt lamp.........I know it won't take my emphysema away or the asthma, but I have not felt this good in a long time.........mentally too, because I was very depressed by my condition.........I just don't have much of a life anymore. I have not had a flare up since using the salt lamp. Thank you for such wonderful products.
- Barbara B.
"I'm not sure who I'm e-mailing during these sessions...but Thank YOU so much for your positive business approach. Not many companies today go out of their way to make a new customer happy. This was not what I or my husband expected by getting another lamp at no charge and you personally picking it out. It shows that truly there are companies out there that want the consumer to be happy with their product and go the extra mile to make it happen. We were so unexpectant of your e-mail response...It totally took us by surprise - and so soon. We do not expect free things in our life...your company in trying times needs a profit too. I will continue to purchase from you, especially when I need great gifts. Thank you so much for such a positive e-mail and being a very understanding company. Like I expressed; your products are beautiful pieces of nature and every piece is different, we are using them right now! Thanks again and I will be purchasing more in the future and I hope the people I give these lamps to as presents appreciate the value and the ions released to enhance their surroundings. Thanks again."

"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 to her also. Thank your for your fine products."
- Cathy N.
"Found in Woman's World publication. Had seen these at a craft festival in Oklahoma last year and bought for friends - none for me! As soon as I saw these I went right to the computer. Thanks! By the way, my friends love them!"
- Lynn W.
"Just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU for the incredible service and beautiful product! I was married in May and I needed to create a beautiful wedding reception on a very modest budget. I wanted candles for the table centerpieces instead of traditional floral arrangements. I ordered 15 natural candle holders, one for each table, and I couldn't imagine a more perfect look for our reception. Now one of the candle holders sits in our living room, a beautiful reminder of our perfect day. Thank you thank you thank you!"
