Himalayan salt lamps are made from beautiful pink Himalayan salt that is mined in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. These lamps have hygroscopic properties and readily absorb moisture out of the air. The natural color of a salt lamp creates an orange or pinkish glow that can add beauty to any decor. Himalayan salt lamps make a great addition for any space: in your bedroom, at the office, by your computer, next to your television, or anywhere else you want to brighten a space with a beautiful glow. For maximum benefits, we recommend leaving your lamp on as much as possible.
