EDIT: After a bit more research it seems the manufacturer may have changed the dimmer to a safer version recently. Here is a picture of mine for reference. If your dimmer has these markings it is the version that is faulty and will burn up. The little thing next to the cover is the transistor that burned up. It used to have three terminals but the other one disintegrated.
“I love your Himalayan salt lamps, I bought one for my six year old daughter Izabella who suffers from severe allergies. She had inner nose nodules and within three days of sleeping with her lamp they have shrunk in size. She has had her lamp for months, she has also had less allergy fevers. I love this product!!!! I also bought one for my mother Donna age 78, who has had asthma since she was a child. She also suffers from emphysema, so breathing and coughing is a normal in her everyday life. Since having the salt lamp in the family room where she spends most of her time, she has drastically stopped coughing so much.  She is also down on how much she uses her inhaler a day, seriously down from 8 times to 2, that is amazing!!!!“  Gabriel Mollina http://www.paksalts.com/image/salt%20lamp%20metal%20basket%20SE-1409.jpg

I bought three of these and gave two for Christmas gifts and they are amazing!! I noticed the minute I opened the box this wonderful fresh smell, like a salty ocean breeze! Each one was beautiful and uniquely different. The bulb is included and everyone especially loved the dimmer switch feature. These are indeed the real deal and are carved from Himalayan salt. They're simply beautiful and we're and exceptional deal at less than $15.00!! https://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/pink-salt-lamps.jpg
These studies, however, used high concentrations of negative ions generated by industrial scale ion generators. Seeing as we have uncovered no evidence to support the claim a salt lamp produces any ions, the notion that a $29.99 block of rock with a light bulb could rival the power of a specifically designed laboratory equipment seems dubious. Much of the pseudoscience written about the positive effects of negative ions similarly disregards scale in their analyses, equating negative ionization at any level as the same phenomenon. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/fd/46/6c/fd466c510ca9a88ca75a5a2f3e66fc65--salt-rock-lamp-salt-lamps.jpg
The negative ions are generated by a continuous interplay of water attraction and evaporation. The salt crystal lamp attracts water molecules from the surrounding air to its warm surface. The water and salt form a solution. In the process of evaporation of the solution, due to the heat of the lamp, negatively charged ions are created. Both positive and negative ions are created but much more negative ions than positive ions are created, therefore providing a surplus of negative ions. Natrium [another word for sodium] is positively charged. This unique ion emission interplay ability with water is because of salt’s neutral atomic structure.
Remember, even if you’re like me and you can’t sleep unless the room is totally dark, you can always turn the lamp off at bedtime. Just leave it on for the rest of the day so it can do its work while you’re awake. People in humid climates should be aware that HPS lamps tend to weep when the salt becomes cool. You’ll definitely want to protect surfaces by placing a saucer underneath and be sure to follow the instructions for use and care which should be included with your lamp! https://negativeionizers.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Fire-bowl.jpg
Another possible health benefit of the Himalayan salt lamp is a reduction in anxiety symptoms. According to color therapy as well as general human enjoyment, the warm pinkish to orange glow of the salt lamp is a calming and happy presence in a room. Additionally, as a real piece of nature, Himalayan salt gives off negative ions like a waterfall (but in much smaller amounts). Since Himalayan salt lamps release negative ions into the air, they can help reduce anxiety and also encourage a relaxing atmosphere for sleep. (7) Many people like to keep salt lamps in their bedrooms for their calming effect. http://www.steroidsmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Benefits-Of-Himalayan-Salt-Lamp.png
Himalayan salt lamps are hand-carved crystals of pure Himalayan salt, with a bulb inside. This light bulb not only illuminates, but also heats the crystal when it is turned on. Thus, they release negative ions in the air, which reduce anxiety and create a peaceful environment for sleep. Since Himalayan salt is natural, these are the same negative ions that you can find in waterfalls, oceans and other natural resources on our planet. Just put a lamp that is the right size in your bedroom.

In 1966, a hospital in Jerusalem conducted a study of thirty-eight infants suffering from respiratory problems. They cared for half of the infants in a ward without any ion change, and cared for the other half in a ward where a negative-ion generator was in use. “The researchers reported that neg-ions without any other treatment “ that is, no drugs “ seemed to cure attacks of asthma and bronchitis more quickly than drugs, antibiotics included… children treated with neg-ions were less prone to ‘rebound attacks’ (relapses)… the scientific report said that the tests ‘demonstrated that atmospheric ions have an effect on infants, especially those suffering from asthmatic bronchitis. Less scientifically, they found that the babies didn’t cry as often and as loudly as they did in normal air.” The Ion Effect, by Fred Soyka, p. 57, 1991.


The unique salt lamp is made from natural salt crystals hand mined in the Himalayan mountains. Once lit the lamp will emit a calming amber color heating the salt with the included bulb releases negative ions into the air, creating an effect similar to an ionize and purifying the surrounding air. Due to the natural variation in crystal salt, weight, size, color, and shape may vary.

How it works Himalayan Salt Lamps also release negative ions and counteract positive ions. This happens when the heat from the light bulb evaporates the water molecules. Salt lamps do not release a ton of negative ions, but enough that you will be able to feel the positive effects. Putting more than one lamp in a bigger space can increase the benefits. https://d7909660933f5e92ab69-a09041a37f05a6f5777b6af5e3e016a3.ssl.cf2.rackcdn.com/images/sku1363-crystal-ball/detail-1.jpg
In January of this year, Michael's issued a recall on some of their salt lamps sold under the Lumière brand. Rest assured, the issue and recall had nothing to do with the Himalayan salt itself but reported hazards with the dimmer switch and plug. If you’re looking to purchase a lamp, talk to the retailer and make sure it has been assembled properly and that the piece you’re interested in was not included in the recall. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2342/4477/products/salt-lamp-6kg-to-8kg-homewares-ishka_273_260x.jpg?v

As mentioned earlier, there are many different types of salt lamps that range in color to style. Among the most common are lamps created by inserting a light source directly into a salt crystal or a basket of crystals with a light source underneath. In these cases, the differences are for the most part purely aesthetic, and your choice comes down to finding the right solution for your tastes and complementing the environment in your home. http://www.himalyacrafts.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Himalayan-Salt-lamp-cylinder-shape-300x300.jpg

 This claim stems from research performed on laboratory rats who were under anesthesia and essentially pumped directly with high concentrations of negatively ionized air. It goes without saying that humans are not rats, and a that specifically designed laboratory ionization instruments produce a whole lot more ions than a salt lamp, which, not to drive this point home too much, they do not.

Nature creates negative ions to counter positive ions . The negative ions increase the oxygen supply to the brain thus creates alertness of mind and reduces lethargy and anxiety. An example of experiencing wonders of this effect is when you go for walk by riverside or enjoy serenity of a waterfall. The air saturated with negative ions makes you feel happy and relaxed . http://cli.net/wp-content/gallery/crafted-salt-lamp/salt-lamp-pyramid.jpg

The strongest evidence supporting any benefit of negative ions is as an antibacterial agent. A 1979 study in the journal Nature showed that high levels of negative oxygen ions could kill bacteria. Ionizers could also reduce the prevalence of surface and airborne bacteria in refrigerators, according to a 2009 study. However, that research applied only to sanitizing food or work surfaces, and did not make any claims about health benefits. https://saltrockpk.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/08natural-lamp_homepage.jpg?w
Last, but not least: Himalayan pink salt lamps are environmentally friendly. While only an estimate, the reserves from which HPS is mined measure somewhere between 80 and 600 million tons and is projected to last for at least another 350 years at the current extraction rate. The base of an HPS lamp is generally carved from a sustainable wood such as neem. Some lamps use a low-wattage bulb which consumes very little energy while others are powered by a lit candle. https://cdn.thewhoot.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Diffusing-with-Essential-Oils-550x366.jpg

In our world overrun with technology, it seems that anxiety and stress have been on the rise for quite some time. We have talked about many natural remedies for anxiety before, but we’d like to mention the Himalayan salt lamp as a viable solution for anxiety today. Wireless technology emits positive ions into the environment, which cause our systems to become imbalanced, and increase stress and anxiety. Negative ions found in nature help to keep anxiety and stress at bay, which explains why many of us feel more energized and alert while outside.
They can definitely clean the surrounding air of allergens and, even though it’s difficult to find extensive scientific studies to back all of the reported health benefits of salt lamps, the many positive reviews of people’s personal experiences makes them well worth considering, either for your own home, or as a gift for a friend who cares about health and wellness. http://familylifegoals.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/how-to-use-himalayan-salt-lamps-for-better-sleep-and-mental-clarity-600x313.jpg

Like several comments above, I also smelled something burning one night in my office and couldn’t figure out what was the culprit for awhile. When I located the source of the problem and tried to turn off the salt lamp, I almost burned my hand by touching the dimmer/switch. As you can see from the photo, part of it was melted. Glad I was there that night. Or my office would have been on fire! http://womori.tripod.com/webonmediacontents/1649660.jpg?1479037063432
The bulb inside of the lamp heats the crystal and supports the ionizing effect. Salt itself is hygroscopic and attracts the water from the surroundings. You can often see that the salt lamp is damp or even wet, especially in more humid environments. Due to the gentle heat of the lamp, the water quickly evaporates and during the evaporation process the beneficial negative ions get created. They go on to bind with excessive positive ions (bacteria, molds and allergens all carry a positive charge) and neutralize the electronic smog in your home. https://www.business99.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/2-Pack-Natural-Crystal-Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Himalayan-Glow-Hand-Carved-Natural-With-Genuine-Wood-Base-Bulb-Dimmer-Control-Amber-6-to-8-Inch-6-to-7-lbs.-By-Makony.jpg
Sellers of these spa-like room accessories claim the lamps can "clear the air of electro-smog," oxygenate the brain, reduce symptoms of such mood disorders as seasonal affective disorder and even improve the immune system. Proponents claim these lamps work in two ways: They attract allergens and pollutants from the air to their surface, and they generate negative ions.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us. I have Himalayan salt lamps in my house. I personally love them. These lamps are just more than awesome. They are not only beautiful but also have healthy and healing benefits for human mind and body as you have mentioned above. They eliminate all the dust particles and smoke from the air and make it pure and fresh. They help me in relieving stress and depression and improve the sleep cycle. I bought my lamps from ittefaqco at a very reasonable price and they are of great quality. You can visit their website if you want to.
Since positive ions are often created by electronic devices like computers, TVs, microwaves, and even vacuum cleaners, they can often exacerbate problems like allergies, stress and sleep trouble. Negative ions can neutralize positive ions (they bond together) and help cleanse the air. Additionally, salt lamps offer a soothing glow that many people find relaxing. https://camelbazarsiwa.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/p5255552-1.jpg
Himalayan salt lamps have the ability to chemically and physically transform a room, and have unique health benefits. People who use pink Himalayan salt lamps say that they help to increase blood flow, reduce allergy symptoms and even help to get a better sleep. Some of the other health benefits of Himalayan pink salt lamps (HPS lamps) include reduction of mental health related disorders, improvement of skin conditions and respiratory problems such as asthma and even colds. http://earthstreasuresmt.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/decor-salt-lamps-article.jpg

A 2013 study in the journal BMC Psychiatry reviewed data from several studies found that overall, negative air ionization has no overall effect on anxiety, mood, sleep or personal comfort. However, those studies did document a slight reduction in depressive symptoms, with higher levels of impact from higher concentrations of negative ionization. The analysis also showed a slight improvement in seasonal affective disorder, even with lower ion concentrations. The explanation for this weak effect is that the sun's stronger rays in the summer produce more negative ions than during the winter, and negative ionizers are potentially mimicking those summer-like conditions, said Dr. Alan Manevitz, a psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. However, a more established way to mimic summer conditions is with light therapy, which has been studied more extensively, he said. https://cdn.davidwolfe.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/fake-salt-lamp-FI-800x419.jpg
[…] While some dispute the health claims of this type of salt, saying the mineral content is too small to make any sort of recognizable difference, many others use Himalayan salt as a healthy addition to their diet. Some people even enjoy the soft glow of a Himalayan salt lamp in their house as it is said to reduce positive ions in the home environment, improving health and well-being.

Himalayan salt lamps are growing in popularity and for good reason. These striking items that bring light to your surroundings and enhance home decor can also promote optimum physical and mental health. These lamps are made of actual rocks of Himalayan salt with a light bulb installed in the middle. When they light up, you can see the brilliant pink color and their unique gleam. It is important to make sure you have a genuine Himalayan salt lamp for maximum benefits. Real Himalayan salt lamps can change the energy of your surroundings, clean the air and raise your spirits. They are derived from an area in Pakistan in the Himalayan mountains, which is the main source of the famous pink salt. These pieces of salt are hand carved into lamps and each has a unique shape. These Himalayan salt lamps are hygroscopic or attract water vapor. In addition to vapor, the lamps bring impurities toward the lamp and away from the surrounding air. This cleans the air and can improve respiration, help ease asthma and fight against pollutants. They can also bring more negative ions into the air, which can lighten the mood and be beneficial to overall health. The following is a list of the many benefits of Himalayan salt lamps.

In addition, the color of the salt affects how your mind perceives the lighting. Himalayan Salt Lamps primarily emit color in three shades: yellow, brown and orange. According to Very Well Mind, yellow has a tendency to promote feelings of warmth and energy, while orange gives the feeling of enthusiasm. Brown can help the growth of emotions involving strength and reliability. http://davinahearne.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/himalayan-salt-lamps.jpg
Where do you purchase one that can be left on for long periods of time? I want to be sure if my fiance leaves the thing on overnight, we won’t burn the entire house down! My friend told me about the base of your salt lamp really matters. Wood doesn’t do so good, but having a steel base helps to absorb moisture and its safe to use for long periods of time. There’s so many brands out there manufacturing these, so be sure to look out for a steel base! http://robofes.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Awesome-What-Do-Himalayan-Salt-Lamps-Do-About-remodel-Wow-Home-Decoration-Plan-P25-with-What-Do-Himalayan-Salt-Lamps-Do.jpg
