Carved from Himalayan rock salt crystals, Himalayan salt lamps are exquisitely beautiful, providing an earthy, rustic charm to any home or office. Himalayan crystal salt is considered to be the most pure in the world, and while these lamps aren't medical devices, they're reputed to be extremely beneficial for general health and well-being, as they neutralise the harmful effects of the numerous electrical and other devices that clutter most of our living and work spaces.
I paid $39.95 for my large 5kg lamp from Stay Healthy at Morley Galleria in Perth. However, prices vary, even at this retailer, depending upon the size of the salt crystal used and whether it's a natural shape or hand-carved. They're also available at various other retail outlets such as health food, organic and New Age shops, as well as online. A couple of websites that I've come across across are Himalayan Salt Australia and Rock Lamps Australia, although plenty of others also exist.
Himalayan salt lamps are not only extremely beneficial for general health and well-being, but they're also very beautiful. They're also a guarenteed conversation-starter when friends and relatives visit.
