What is the difference between a salt lamp and a Himalayan Salt Lamp?
And why such a price difference?
Although when lit both can be said to glow, a Himalayan Salt Lamp is the only type that provides healing qualities.
Below are some other ways to note the difference
1. Your Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp Is Very Bright--
Himalayan salt crystals typically range in colour from medium pink to dark orange. Also, because the salt is full of various different minerals, light emanating from the lamp will be muted and uneven. For these reasons, the average salt lamp emits only a soft warm glow. If your lamp is small but gives off enough light to fully illuminate the room that it is placed in, this is a fairly good sign that your Himalayan salt lamp is a fake.
2. Your Lamp Has A White Crystal, But It Wasn’t Too Expensive--
As previously stated, Himalayan salt crystals usually display a warm pinkish or orange hue. While white Himalayan salt does exist, it is rare and highly sought after. Thus genuine white Himalayan salt lamps will be much more expensive than the common coloured varieties.
If you find a lamp which sports a white salt crystal, but the price isn’t significantly higher than other Himalayan pink salt lamps, this another sure sign that the product isn’t genuine Himalayan pink salt.
3. It Handles Moisture Exceptionally Well--
Himalayan pink salt lamps cleanse the air around them by absorbing moisture and any attached airborne particulate then evaporating pure water pack out into the surrounding environment. This process is called hygroscope and is responsible for one of the most common problems inherent to genuine Himalayan pink salt lamps – sweating.
So if you live in a particularly moist region and your lamp has never done it, this is a pretty good sign that your Himalayan pink salt lamp is a fake.
4.You Don’t Experience Any Of The Health Benefits--
Despite all of the research and firsthand accounts of how Himalayan pink salt lamps have improved the lives of people around the globe, there are still a lot of skeptics out there. From easing asthma and allergy symptoms to increasing energy and counteracting Seasonal Affective Disorder, the science behind Himalayan pink salt (HPS) lamps is the real deal.
If you followed the sizing guidelines but your lamp doesn’t seem to be providing any of the health benefits as it should, it’s possible that your lamp may be a fake.
So now for some good news!!
