Himalayan Salt lamps are produced in both natural and crafted varieties from Himalayan salt derived from the world-famous Khewra mines located at the western periphery of the Himalayan Range - the only authentic source of Himalayan pink salt. While natural salt lamps are created from solid salt rocks, crafted varieties are available in different shapes such as pyramid, cube, sphere, cylinder, firebowl and others.
While much of the respiratory health and wellness benefits of salt therapy or halotherapy comes from minute particles of pure sodium chloride dispersed by a halogenerator, research in this area provides some evidence that large amounts of a natural compound concentration - such as Himalayan salt - in an enclosed space can alter the vibrational frequency of the physical environment, leaving an ambient feeling in the room. Hence, Himalayan salt lamps décor can create a nice, ambient environment in which they are placed.
There is also some scientific evidence regarding chromatic nature of Himalayan salt. With its characteristic orange and pink hues, lighted Himalayan salt lamps or bricks can create a soothing environment to aid emotional and mental health.
