Himalayan salt crystal lamps emit negative ions or positive energy waves into the air, which have been found to provide healing effects, while creating a comforting and relaxing ambience in any indoor space.
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. There is now an asthma clinic at the salt mines, where people go for asthma relief by spending time breathing the salt infused air inside the mountain. This improves respiration and helps alleviate asthma and other respiratory ailments. Salt Lamps have similar beneficial effects.

Care and Maintenance:
Since the lamp is a salt crystal, it is hygroscopic and it naturally attracts moisture from the air. As a result, if not switched on, the salt lamp may get moist and leak or create pools of water. To prevent moisture from forming on or around the lamp, leave it switched on all the time.
