Why do I love my Himalayan salt lamp and Himalayan salt candle holders? Because they add the most beautiful, decorative lighting in my home.
Himalayan salt lighting creates a warm, relaxing, and comforting atmosphere in any room. I have the candle holders on my bedside table. When I light the candles, the warm, soft glow helps me unwind at night. In my living room, there’s a Himalayan lamp that goes on every night with a timer. It’s so pretty and produces very calming, soothing lighting.
Each Himalayan candle holder or lamp is naturally unique, which I think makes them interesting. Due to the nature of the Himalayan salt, there’s variation in color, shape and size. The amber color ranges from an orange-pink to more of a light pink-white. All Himalayan salt rock is heavy and sturdy.
Himalayan salt lamps are said to improve air quality and boost mood and energy levels due to the negative ions they emit, although there seems to be controversy on that claim. I don’t understand the science behind Himalayan salt rocks, but regardless of any added health benefits, the visual benefit alone is worth the purchase.
Looking to buy a Himalayan salt lamp or candle holder? Here are my top picks, and Amazon has the best prices I have found.
- Each candle holder is individually packaged – sealed in plastic wrap in its individual box.
- Make great gifts for those “hard to buy for” friends and family members. Split up a set and have two fantastic, super inexpensive gifts.
- Perfect for the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and really any smaller living area. Line them up to make a great table centerpiece.
- Nice deep well in the center guarantees that the candle will fit your tea light candles, as well as being deep enough to allow the whole Himalayan salt rock to glow beautifully when lit.
- I use both real tea light candles as well as battery operated flickering tea light candles. I’m really after the glow effect. To experience the (claimed) benefits of air purification from the salts, use regular tea lights to generate enough heat for the salts to be dispersed into the air.
- I’ve had my Himalayan candle sticks for six months and still love them – definitely recommend them!
- Perfect for any room.
- Can use it as a calming night light (great for children) .
- Comes with 3 bulbs and a dimmer switch.
- Lamp and cord assembly are UL approved.
