Natural Salt Lamps
Natural, authentic rock salt lamps are a beautiful addition to any home or office environment. As they're hand carved from the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, each one is unique and will vary in size, shape and colour.
Why salt lamps? Well, as Dr Mercola says:
"Every day the miners make their long, slow journey... down 1,500 meters (4,921 feet) deep underground, beneath the Himalayan foothills.
Their mission is to bring forth one of our planet's most potent minerals... a mineral formed over many thousands of years ago when light and energy from the sun dried up the primal ocean.
The amazing thing... despite spending years deep within the Himalayan earth doing back-breaking work every day, the miners are incredibly happy.
How could this be?
In fact, word has it that the people working these mineral mines couldn't be happier.
When I first heard this, I found it quite hard to believe. Everyone has heard about the hazards of mining... particularly, the risks coal miners face every day they go underground.
So, what's different about these mines? Could there be something in the air?"
.... Since the beginning of recorded history, the beneficial properties of salt have been well known and documented. Early civilizations greatly valued salt and used it as a trading currency as well as a preservative for food.
And generations ago, people regularly turned to salt water and salt mines for many reasons.
For years, many European countries have used salt mines and hot salt springs to promote a sense of rejuvenation.
People rest and rejuvenate in salt mines and caves (in spa-like ambiance in many cases), for periods of time to help aid their mood and overall sense of calm.
This type of rejuvenation in salt mines and caves is common.
People travel from all over the world to visit salt mines like the ones found in the Himalayas, Austria, and Germany. In Germany, the hot salt springs are so revered, companies often send overworked employees there to rejuvenate."
So salt lamps are, essentially, a portable salt mine or cave.
