himalayan salt lamps



I am the latest fan of Himalayan Salt Lamps! 

I was recently visiting a friend who has several of these beautiful lamps in her home. They are hand carved from Himalayan salt and they are lit up from the inside thus creating a warm glowing light. I love the cosy ambience they create plus they are said to naturally improve air quality by letting out healthy negative ions - basically, the salt draws in water molecules from the air and then when the lamp gets warm the water and salt react and let out negative ions. The negative ions are supposed to counteract harmful positive ions from electrical equipment. Airborne bacteria, viruses and allergens are also said to be purified from the air. 

I love them and I am looking forward to getting some for my home very soon! :)
