Salt Lamps | What are the Benefits?

Until recently the only place you'd find Himalayan sea salt in my house was in the kitchen. But when Ollie turned 6 months (and wouldn't stop rolling over in his next to me crib) we moved him into his own room and so his thermometer went too. I didn't realise how much we actually quite liked the glow and started looking for an alternative. I stumbled upon salt lamps* and quickly found out that it wouldn't just replace the glow we'd gotten used to.
What are salt lamps

The salt is handcrafted into a shape of a lamp and the inside is hollowed out to fit a light fixture inside. Once the light fixture s place, a wooden base is attached to hold the lamp together.

  1. I love Salt Lamps! I have them in each room. I'm not sure how true the benefits really are but I think they're softer than normal lamps which let me power down easier as well as looking amazing so anything else on top of that is just a bonus!
