Levoit Hand Carved Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp

levoit-reviewI’m sure you have heard about them and I’m sure you have seen them, but have you tried one? Levoit has given me the opportunity to test out their Elora Hand Carved Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp. Not really familiar with the science behind Himalayan Salt Lamps, I did my research.

Himalayan Salt has a beautiful pinkish orange color due to the high concentration of minerals. Salt is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water molecules from the surrounding air. So it is believed that salt lamps can trap dirt, pollen and smoke particles and pet dander which are carried in water vapor. Once attracted to the salt, these microscopic compounds remain on the salt and not in the air where you can breathe them in.

The inside of your hollowed out salt lamp will house a light bulb needed to produce light and heat. You need the heat of the lamp to dry the collecting water vapors to continue the hygroscopic effect. So if your lamp is not on, it’s not working.

  • Improving breathing problems and reducing allergies.
  • Less colds and flu (due to less airborne viruses).
  • Increased relaxation and calmness and less stress.
  • Improved ability to concentrate and work for longer periods around electrical equipment like computers.
  • Fewer headaches and migraines.
  • Reduced symptoms from disorders like rheumatism and arthritis.
  • An improvement in skin diseases.
  • Easier to get to sleep at night.
  • A better overall sense of health and wellbeing.

Not only does it help clean the air, but the heat of the lamp will release negative ions. In a world filled with electronic devices (T.V.s, smart phones, tablets and appliances) electromagnetic (EM) radiation emitted, causing a buildup of positive ions. The release of  negative ions from the salt lamp will help reduce positive ions which can cause chronic fatigue and increase stress levels.

So where should you keep your salt lamp? You will want to keep your Himalayan Salt Lamp close to you so you can take advantage of its beauty,  fresher air and negative ions it generates. On your night stand, coffee table, even your desk at work.levoit-3

While humans gravitate and respond to beautiful colors, it’s believed that the pinkish orange glow of the salt lamp has a calming effect and reduces stress. The soft glow of a Himalayan Salt lamp is perfect for relaxing and can even improve your sleep.

Why Choose a Levoit Himalayan Salt Lamplevoit-2

 

So I found a list of things to look for when shopping for a Himalayan Salt Lamp and Levoit has them all!

Color – Because Himalayan Salt is a mineral, colors can vary.  The higher quality salt crystals will have richer pink and orange colors. Levoit hand selects all their salt crystals to ensure clarity, shape and color purity.

Size- Levoits Himalayan salt lamps vary in weight from 8-11 pounds. This is ideal for bedrooms, kitchens, offices and small living rooms or lounges. Recommended room size is equal or larger than 10 square feet.

Bulb Wattage- As a general rule salt lamps weighing around ten pounds require a 15 watt bulb. Levoits Himalayan Salt lamp will come with one light bulb installed and one additional bulb.

Base-  Because of the weight of Himalayan Salt Lamps a secure base is needed. Levoits Lamps have a beautiful stainless steel base for maximum safety and to ensure longevity. Levoits stainless steel base is specially designed to absorb evaporating water molecules while guarding the wires from moisture.

Shape- Although a polished stone is pretty you will be reducing the surface area. Lovoits roughly chiseled stone will give you the most benefits.

Bonus features that make Levoit stand out over other brands.

Dimmable Lighting – Levoits Himalayan Salt Lamp as a easy touch control dimmer allowing you adjust the brightness of your lamp to suit your mood. Simply tap to turn on, tap and hold to dim or brighten and tap to turn off.

Beautiful Packaging – Whether you buy this for yourself or as a gift, Levoits Hand Carved Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp comes in a sturdy beautiful red box.

My Experience

I have truly been sold on the beauty and calming effect of my Levoit Himalayan Chrystal Salt Lamp. I have place levoit-1mine on my night stand to take advantage of the relaxing glow while winding down for the night. The dimmer control is very convenient and easy to use with a simple tap of the finger. I am able to have the light bright while we are starting our night time routine and slowly dim it as the night goes on. I can leave it on the dimmest setting and use it my night light.

Although I was surprised at how heavy my lamp really is,  it is very sturdy. I do keep my cords tucked away so that my daughter doesn’t pull it off the night stand. I do get sense of warmth from it, but neither the base or the crystal gets to warm to the touch. This is also great if you have little ones who are curious about everything.

Each Himalayan salt lamp is uniquely beautiful making them a interesting and attractive feature to any living space. No matter how many you have, no two will be the same.

    My son got us two of these for Christmas. We absolutely love them and leave them on all the time. I’ve read many reviews about the benefits of the lamps. I do believe the material of the base is better in this case. I’m not sure that wood is the best material as it absorbs moisture. It is absolutely beautiful and the on off switch is wonderful. I have a chronic migraines and allergies. I can feel a difference in the air and have an easier time breathing. My husband and I have both slept so much better since turning ours on.
