Every single product comes from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. Each lamp is handpicked and carved by expert craftsmen.
Can I keep my Crystal Salt Lamp on all of the time?
Yes, you can. This question is asked quite frequently, and it is important to understand how Himalayan Salt Lamps actually work, acting as natural ionizers. It is the heat from the bulb that stimulates the production of negative ions. Therefore, the longer you leave the lamp on, the warmer they get, the more they will purify the air in your environment. In fact, many customers do leave them on 24/7, and claim to get the best ionizing effect, where some just simply like the relaxing glow they give off. In our home and office, we leave our Himalayan Salt Lamps on all the time, yet we recommend you use at your discretion. If you plan not to use your lamp for longer periods of time, put a plastic bag on the lamp to protect it from humid conditions.

Taking care of your Crystal Salt Lamp is easy. As salt lamps can be very heavy, place it on a safe surface. To remove dust or dirt, use a slightly damp cotton cloth and then dry with a fresh dry cotton cloth. Salt lamps are intended for indoor use only. Salt is hygroscopic, it absorbs water particles from the atmosphere. Therefore, the lamps are to be used in dry areas. In case of higher levels of humidity, for example, during rain, the lamp should be turned on. In regions that experience a higher level of humidity, keeping your lamp on will keep the surface dry. We suggest occasionally using furniture polish or oil on the salt lamp base to keep it moisturized and beautiful. Use a glass plate or dish on wooden surfaces to protect the finish from possible humidity reaction when is case the lamp is off for a period of time.

The total electricity consumption is less than used by your refrigerator, even for multiple salt lamps throughout your home, office, or place of business.
