Salt is a hydrophilic material, which means it attracts and absorbs water. When the lamp is placed in a room, its salt crystal immediately begins to absorb trace amounts of humidity in the air. As it does so, it also draws in allergens and air pollutants that may be suspended in the moisture, and deposits them on its surface. The light bulb inside generates heat as well as light, and slowly evaporates the collected moisture back into the air with a slight negative ionic charge. The result is cleaner and fresher air quality in the room, and harmful positive ions from personal electronics are neutralized.
What can I do with it?
Place the lamp in your living room to decorate it with a warm, amber glow that cleanses the air of dust and pet dander. Put a lamp in your office or den as a sculpted conversation piece that neutralizes electromagnetic radiation from computers and personal electronics. Keep one in your bedroom as a night light that disperses negative ions to help you sleep. ...or you can have one for each room and do all three! The cleansing and ionizing effects of natural salt can freshen the air in your home, improve your mood, neutralize static, and prevent seasonal blues. Just wipe the lamp once or twice a week to remove accumulated deposits and the lamp will do the rest.
What do you mean by "natural?"
We mean natural, as in - this is a genuine product of nature. This is literally the salt of the earth, from the very womb of the Himalayan Mountains to your home; there is nothing more simple and organic. Each salt lamp is mined by hand from rich salt deposits in Pakistan and then hand-carved and drilled, so no two are alike. Even the base is hewn from sustainable, Sheesham wood to accent the lamp's natural beauty and absorb condensation. The only thing unnatural about Milliard Himalayan Salt Lamps is the 25-watt bulb and light fixture.
