What’s the Deal With Those Himalayan Salt Lamps?

May 30, 2016

Perhaps, you’ve already noticed those glowing “orbs” of pink-ish light dotting the treatment rooms of our spas? If not, we’re here to tell you: we love a Himalayan crystal salt lamp here at milk + honey. Let us count the ways.


  1. It naturally purifies the air. When lit, it removes dust, pollen, cigarette smoke, pet dander, and other air pollutants.
  2. Because this lamp cleanses the air, it helps to reduce allergy and asthma symptoms as well as ease coughing.
  3. When lit, the lamp emits negative ions that fight against positively charged particles that cause you to feel stuff sluggish. Translation? You’ll experience increased energy levels.
  4. It naturally enhances your mood. I mean, how could it not? Increased energy levels, clean air, reduced allergies? Yes, please!
  5. It is an environmentally-friendly light source.
  6. While this may not be a true health benefit, it sure does make us happy — Himalayan crystal salt lamps reduce static electricity.

The best part of all this list making? milk + honey now offers these Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Lamps ($40) in all of our locations. Don’t miss out!

    I don’t even know where to begin. I was completely blown away by this lamp. I am a salt lamp fanatic and this lamp is my sixth lamp I own. It is my goal to have a salt lamp, or several, in each room of the house. Here are a few benefits of having Himalayan salt lamps in your home:

    – they purify the air of toxins and dust
    – they neutralize positive ions that are emitted from electronics such as TVs, computers, Wi-Fi etc.
    – they encourage deeper and more peaceful sleep
    – they are soothing and add a beautiful decorative flair to your house

    I, personally, notice a big difference in the air quality in my house after just a few hours of having these salt lamps on. I keep them on all day and really notice a reduction in my allergy symptoms.

    I also love a Himalayan salt lamp. From purifying the air, to looking warm and appealing, or bringing a sense of calm and tranquility to any setting they definitely have something going for them.
