White Himalayan Rock Salt lamp
What is the difference between white and pink salt lamps?
The deepness of the salt's color largely depends on the amount of iron oxide running through it. White Himalayan salt (the rarest variety) is the freest from impurities, while added minerals give pink Himalayan salt its rosy glow.
People use these salt crystal lamps for a number of different reasons. Their soothing pink glow is believed to clean the air in your home, soothe allergies, boost your mood and help you sleep.

The actual salt helps to absorb different allergens and particles that may be floating around in the air, which is why so many people with allergies love them for helping to purify their bedroom and the rest of their house.
Once the salt absorbs the particles and water from the air, it needs to return water vapor back into the environment in your home, which is exactly what happens when you switch your lamp on.
The heat activates the ions found in the salt, which helps to release negative ions into the air and help keep your lungs clear.
The Best Locations for Salt Lamps
Where should you place your Himalayan salt lamp within your home? The great thing is you can experience health benefits in just about any room of your home you want to use one in.
However, because the pink salt can absorb so much moisture, it’s recommended that you do not use them in damp environments, such as bathrooms and basements. Keep salt lamps only in the drier areas of your home where you spend the most time like your bedroom, living room and office. That way you can reap the most and best benefits.
You can, of course, keep them anywhere in your home you like. And having more than one of these beautiful babies in your home is highly recommended if you want to receive the most healing benefits.
