Maintenance of Himalayan Salt Lamps:
Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps require very little care and maintenance.
If you feel like you wish to wipe your lamp intermittently, switch it off and wipe it with a slightly damp cloth. This generally isn’t necessary though, as the salt seems to be self-cleansing. The idea is to leave the lamps switched on permanently to maintain a continuous source of beneficial negative ions.
If a lamp is switched off for an extended period (a few days or longer), it is recommended that the lamp is covered with an airtight bag keeping it dry. Himalayan Crystal Salt is highly hygroscopic, which means that it naturally attracts moisture from the air. With the lamp switched on, any moisture is consistently evaporated and does not have a chance to accumulate. However, if a globe goes or the lamp is left switched off, the moisture starts to accumulate, drip, create small pools of water and initiate a crystallization of the salt on the lamp and around the base. So, find the place in the room you feel that the lamp fits best, switch it on, and then leave it on permanently. However, if used as a night lamp make sure to switch the lamp off to ensure melatonin production is achieved at its highly possible level.
Did you know?
Legend has it that we have the horses of Alexander the Great (around 326 BC) to thank for the discovery of Himalayan Crystal Salt. Apparently, during a rest stop near the Jhelum River, some of the horses began licking the rocks around them. The horses instinctively knew that they could obtain the valuable and nutritious minerals they required from the salt rocks.
