7 Reasons to Own a Himalayan Salt Lamp


Himalayan Salt Lamps have recently become trendy on social media and are  being linked to relaxing and downtime. Here are seven reasons why you should buy a Himalayan Salt Lamp, and why they’re worth the hype.

 1. For the Aesthetic

Himalayan Salt Lamps are aesthetically pleasing, and it would be a straight up lie to say they aren’t! But what is it that makes them so aesthetic?

First – the colour. The colour of Himalayan Salt ranges from white, to light pink, to dark orange, and with the occasional grey. These are all extremely calming colours. The light tones and the softness to the eyes creates a very pleasing product.

Secondly – the light. The light used for a Himalayan Salt Lamp has to be bright to heat the lamp. The way the light shines through the salt is almost magical. It echoes a warm fire glow onto all surroundings and creates a relaxing atmosphere which makes it so appealing.


2. Different Shapes and Sizes

The Natural shaped Himalayan Salt Lamp is beautiful; however, if it isn’t for you, don’t worry because there are so many shapes to choose from. Here at Heaven Spring we sell a range of shapes such as: moon, cat, angel, heart, flower and so much more! Whatever your style or aesthetic is, we have a lamp that is suitable for your taste.

As well as shape, there is also a range of sizes. At Heaven Spring, we provide sizes from 1.5kg to 100+kg. The size is integral to where you plan to place the lamp, and what the surrounding objects are. For example, if you want a Himalayan Salt Lamp for your desk, it’s doubtful you would want a bulky lamp to take up all the space, so a smaller 1.5-2kg, 2-3kg or a 3-4kg lamp would be preferable for you. 


3. Multiple Health Benefits Involved

Himalayan Salt is known to have several claimed health benefits such as:

  • Improves mood 
  • Helps reduce asthma symptoms
  • Boost’s energy levels
  • Improves headaches 
  • Creates a soothing and relaxing atmosphere
  • Much more!

4. Improved Air Quality

The air is made from positive ions. These ions collect moisture, and dust, and make the air heavy. But Himalayan Salt is believed to produce negative ions which attract the positive ones. This causes the air to become clear of dust and water particles so that the air you breathe is purer and less harmful to your body.

5. Improves Sleeping Habits 

When Himalayan Salt is lit up, it emits a warm glow that isn’t harsh to your eyes and can help to relax your brain. This can make it easier for your mind to unwind and allow you to fall asleep quicker and to stay asleep for longer.

As mentioned in reason 4, Himalayan Salt creates negative ions which improve the air quality. Purer air means your body is provided with maximum oxygen to keep your body functioning properly whilst you sleep, which is ideal for quality sleep.

6. Environmentally Friendly 

The process of mining Himalayan Salt for the lamps is ethical and sustainable. It harms as little of the planet that is possible, whilst maintaining the agriculture and wildlife is protected and safe. Himalayan Salt has been mined for centuries and it is tradition to preserve the mountains it is sourced from. 

7. They Last Forever

Himalayan Salt Lamps last forever. There is no wear and tear like other lamps, nor do they become damaged or ruined over time and usage. It will stay in the same shape, size, and quality as you bought it. With the right care with your lamp, you’ll only need to purchase one in your lifetime. However, once buying a Himalayan Salt Lamp, there’s no telling if you’ll want more!
