What about the spiritual benefits of salt lamps?
For centuries pure salt has been used for protection; especially protection in and around the home. Salt is also used for purification, cleansing and dispelling negativity in many magical and traditional rituals.
Himalayan Salt has very similar properties to Rose Quartz and is an excellent crystal for love especially self-love.
It has gentle, but strong grounding and centering energies and is said to bring abundance and prosperity into a home.
Many people recommend owning a salt lamp & some even recommend having one in every room.
Since Himalayan salt lamps have become a trend, there are tonnes of fake ones being sold online.
The real versions are fragile and give off a dim light.
The fake ones are tough to break and glow brightly.
Real salt lamps can also “sweat” this is because salt is hygroscopic meaning that it naturally attracts water molecules. This won’t happen if your salt lamp is fake.
And of course fake salt lamps do not have the same benefits as the real deal.
How do I stop a salt lamp sweating?
Keep your lamp on all day and night to stop your Himalayan salt lamp from sweating and leaking. Switching on the lamp 24/7 or at least 16 hours a day keeps the natural salt crystal warm and helps to dry it out. A warm lamp evaporates any excess moisture
