Our Lava lamps come from high quality graded raw stock that are put together with great care and attention. We have two ranges, Natural and Carved. Natural rugged looking salt lamps are made from harder more dense salt. Carved rock salt lamps use a softer salt to allow them to be hand carved.
How salt lamps work: The Rock Salt naturally attracts moisture, allergens and dust particles, with the light on, the gentle warming effect removes the moisture and attracts dust & allergens from its surroundings. The lamp warms the salt minerals and removes the moisture from the salt firstly and then attracted it from the surrounding air, it then releases negative ions back. These benefits are under great debate. One thing is for sure, the lamps look great and add a great ambient subtle glow for meditation or any warming and calming environment.
One of the main physical properties of these lamps is that they absorb moisture from the air. The Natural un-shaped lamps have a higher resilience to moisture than the softer carved versions. With regular use regular any moisture build up is removed. (See care and maintenance).

Salt lamps vary massively in variety and in particular size. They are beautiful in stature either on or off. They can be used in any room of a house or office location. Sized generally for a desk / side board or floor creating a relaxing glow when on.
How they are said to work is by generating negative ions for better health...... Water vapour is always circulating in the air of any room of your home, this water carries allergens like dust, pollen, pet dander and even bacteria and viruses alike. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. A large block of rock salt, like a Himalayan crystal salt lamp, is especially attractive to water vapour and its attached pollutants. Once attracted to the lamp, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not floating in the air where you could previously breathe them in. The salt lamps slowly becomes saturated with this and the lamp warmth dries this.
Salt Lamp Care Notes: Our salt lamps are intended for indoor use only. Cleaning: the rock lamp is required every 1-2 weeks with a damp cloth. They are for decorative use only and should not be left turned on if unattended for long periods. Keep the lamp away from excessive moisture of humidity (e.g. Cellars, Kitchens etc.).
Physical features of these lamps are: A tendency to absorb moisture from the air. The lamp bulb heats the salt up and drives the water out again. We recommend using the lamp fairly frequently, if it is not regularly lit they can start crumble due to the moisture build up.This can happen more often in places where there's likely to be more water such as from condensation next to windows, conservatories or bathrooms.
