Himalayan Salt Lamp Buying Guide
‘When we speak of Himalayan Salt, we are referring to only one specific crystal salt, the “Original” coming from one specific location in the East Karakoram range of the Himalayan Mountain in Pakistan.’ from the Book: “Water & Salt – the Essence of Life“ By: Dr Barbara Hendel, MD and Peter Ferreira
Himalayan salt lamps are made of large rock crystals of salt mines in Pakistan in the vicinity of the Himalayas. The crystals are usually Orange or Pink but can range from Off-White to Dark Brown. Carved into lamps, they can be lit from within using a light bulb or a candle. These give out an attractive, soothing light and have been credited with providing various health benefits including the elimination of the “electro-smog".
‘FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS SALT HAS BEEN KNOWN AS A PANACEA. ALCHEMISTS CALLED IT “THE FIFTH ELEMENT” –BESIDES WATER, EARTH, AIR AND FIRE – BECAUSE ITS QUALITIES WERE COMPARABLE ONLY TO ETHER, THE ACTUAL FIFTH ELEMENT. WHY ARE WE SO DRAWN TO THE OCEAN? BECAUSE OUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND INSTINCTIVELY WANTS TO RETURN TO THE SPECIFIC VIBRATIONAL STATE OF THE OCEAN FROM WHICH WE ONCE EMERGED. THIS IS WHERE WE CAN RETURN TO RECHARGE OUR BATTERIES AND REGENERATE. IT WAS ONLY TWO-HUNDRED-FIFTY YEARS AGO, WITH THE ADVENT OF INDUSTRIALIZATION, THAT WE INITIATED OUR DISCONNECTION FROM NATURE AND HER WAYS. FORTUNATELY, WE ARE WITNESSING A TREND TO RETURN BACK TO NATURAL, HOLISTIC METHODS FOR LIVING AND CARING FOR OUR BODY, INCLUDING A SHIFT BACK TO UTILIZING NATURAL SALTS IN THIS PROCESS. PEOPLE EVERYWHERE ARE RECONSIDERING THE HEALING EFFECTS OF NATURAL CRYSTAL SALT. WE CAN FIND IT IN SKIN CARE LOTIONS AND FOR USE AS BATH SALTS, AND IT IS EVEN USED IN INHALATION OR CLEANSING TREATMENTS FOR ILLNESSES OF THE RESPIRATORY SYSTEM AND FOR A VARIETY OF OTHER INDICATIONS.’ BY: DR BARBARA HENDEL, MD AND PETER FERREIRA
FAKE VS. AUTHENTIC HIMALAYAN SALT LAMP TEST
OUR AUTHENTIC HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS DO ABSORB MOISTURE, SO THEY SHRINK WITH TIME. THAT’S WHY WE ADVISE PLACING THEM IN DRY AND COOL PLACES. TO CHECK IF YOUR LAMP IS REAL, DO THE FOLLOWING TEST: RUB THE LAMP GENTLY USING A DAMP CLOTH. IF YOUR LAMP IS REAL, IT WILL LOOK LIKE IT’S “WEEPING”, AND THE CLOTH WILL BE SLIGHTLY DISCOLORED ON THE PART THAT YOU HAVE RUBBED. IF YOU CAN’T NOTICE THESE THINGS, YOUR LAMP IS FAKE.
ALTHOUGH, OUR AUTHENTIC HIMALAYAN SALT LAMPS THEY HAVE INCREDIBLE HEALING AND DETOXIFICATION PROPERTIES, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO NOTICE SOME CHANGES AFTER USING IT SEVERAL WEEKS. MINERS OF HIMALAYAN SALT ARE CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE ON THE PLANET. SO, IF YOU DON’T NOTICE SIGNIFICANT RESULTS AFTER USING IT FOR A CERTAIN PERIOD, YOU HAVE A FAKE ONE WHICH USUALLY INCLUDES THE TOXIN CALLED FLUORIDE.
