Himalayan Salt Lamp on Onyx Base.
Cords and Globes
All salt lamps are now sold with a 12v cord and globe. All selenite lamps are sold with a 240v cord and globe. In the past all cords and globes were 240v, but due to new legislation in Australia (September 2020) salt lamps are now only sold with 12v components. If you purchased a salt lamp prior, you will need to select the 240v globe option. You can also choose to upgrade your salt lamp to a 12v cord and globe by purchasing these here.

Legend has it that this salt was discovered by the horses of Alexander the Great. The horses instinctively began licking the salty rocks for the minerals they were requiring.

This improves respiration and helps alleviate asthma and other respiratory ailments. Salt Lamps have similar beneficial effects.

Care and Maintenance:
