Lighting is an important part of a room’s design. Not only does it enhance the aesthetic appeal of room but also creates an ambiance for the living space. It can be a bit surprising that something as simple as a table lamp can make such a difference to the overall feel of a room. In this article, we will talk about Himalayan salt lamps and how it can help you illuminate your home.
Himalayan salt lamps are decorative lamps made from Himalayan salt crystals. The light radiating from within the crystallized salt seems as soothing and relaxing as the warm glow of a campfire. Since these lamps are made out of pure Himalayan salt crystals, it can even be used as seasoning; though we wouldn’t recommend such a thing.
Let’s take a look at HemingWeigh, a company that sells natural Himalayan salt lamps.
Hemingweigh Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp | Features
Uniqueness is by far one of the most attractive features of a lamp. Since these lamps are crafted by hand, each and every lamp is unique in its own right. They offer an excellent way to add some variety, especially considering all the mass market standardized decorative items.
The lamp is composed of pure chunks of Himalayan salt, mined directly from the salt range of Punjab and handcrafted by Punjabi craftsmen, who are renowned as the best salt craftsmen in the world.
Himalayan salt has come to be known as the vitamins of the air due to its natural air purifying properties, which is another feature that makes these lamps so special. These lamps are not only gorgeous decorative pieces that emanate a warm amber glow but also purify the air.
When the lamp is lit, it emits a soft amber glow. When the Himalayan salt is heated, it disperses negative ions into the air. These negative ions counteract the positively charged ions, which are mostly generated by electrical equipment. The naturally ionized air helps create a soothing and calming atmosphere.
Another amazing feature of the lamp is that it is not molded into a particular shape or size. Instead, the finished product is subject to the varying size, weight, and color of the salt crystals. Therefore, no two Himalayan salt lamps will be exactly the same. So it is quite possible, in a sense, that you might have a one of a kind salt lamp in your home.

HemingWeigh Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp is a beautiful hand carved salt lamp with a gorgeous wooden base. It is available in a pack of two lamps. Aside from its design, it is an extremely practical lamp with eight-inch long wires and an easy-to-replace system for the bulb. Since the lamp is made out of pure Himalayan salt, it naturally possesses hygroscopic and ionizing properties.
Let us take a look at another product for comparison. Amethya Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp is another brand of a salt lamp which is also hand-carved in the Pakistani province of Punjab. Its base is made out of neem tree, a tree in the mahogany family and native to the subcontinent region.
Similar to HemingWeigh, it offers the same ambiance enhancing properties. For example, it can cleanse and deodorize the ambiance through hygroscopy and the negative ions released from the heated Himalayan salt crystals.
As you can see from the information we’ve covered, there isn’t much difference between the two lamps. The Himalayan salt crystals are from the same region. Both are handcrafted in the same areas. Both possess ambient enhancing properties, through its ability to naturally ionize and deodorize the air.
What makes HemingWeigh standout as the superior product is the practicality and utility it offers. Since a salt lamp cannot be opened or closed, it can be quite difficult to replace its bulb. However, in the case of HemingWeigh, it offers easy-to-replace system for changing the bulb. Moreover, its long wires ensure that we can easily put the lamp anywhere we want without being limited in our choices due to the length of the wires.
