You have seen Himalayan Pink Salt in natural lamps, carved lamps, in edible form, and even in spa kits. Why is pink salt so popular? The short answer is “The things it can do are truly amazing!”. Because it was deposited between 250 and 600 million years ago, it is one of the few sea salts on the market that doesn’t contain plastic.
Himalayan Pink Salt is often sold as lamps because they naturally attract humidity, and when the moisture reaches the warm lamp, negative ions are emitted. Similar to the effects of a deionizer sold by Brookstone or Sharper Image, salt lamps are most familiar in natural form, and these little beauties never wear out. You just need to replace the light bulb when it burns out. I recommend you avoid LED-powered salt lamps. They look cute on your computer, but because LED bulbs don’t heat up, they aren’t able to produce negative ions.
