Himalayan Salt Shop Sponsor Spotlight Review

I have waited for such a long time to have one of these and now that I do, I can't tell you how excited I am! I am of course talking about a Himalayan Salt Lamp! I received the mini Salt Lamp which is 4 to 5 pounds and is actually perfect for me. I don't know what I would have done with one that is very large. This fits perfectly on one of my coffee tables in the living room:

And then here it is with the light turned on:

It does make a dramatic difference to have it on, doesn't it? First off I got this lamp from the Himalayan Salt Shop and wanted to send out a special Thank You for being so kind as to let me have one to review! Did you know that they think salt lamps may help with allergies and asthma? I do have spring allergies so this is the perfect time for us to be trying it out. Of course, they do say that the larger ones are the ones that really provide the best advantage to help but I will be happy if I get even a small amount of relief. Our allergies can get pretty nasty around here with really bad headaches and stuffiness. Hubby is the one who really suffers the most. I just get headaches but he gets all of it full blown.

Did you know that the salt lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains? They are also hundreds of millions of years old and as a result, has special properties and high mineral content. Some people believe that they help with an array of health problems, like Dr. Oz, who has recommended a Salt Inhaler. He says that this salt is all-natural and pollutant-free. It helps with allergies, sinus infections and breathing difficulties. I am amazed that these lamps seem to be able to do so much for us. Oh, and if you decide to try one out, Himalayan Salt Shop gives a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee so if it doesn't work out for you, you can return it. But I really don't think you will. If you suffer from allergies, it is worth a shot just to see if you get some relief. Any relief to me is better than none.

This is just a snippet of what I took off of Himalayan Salt Shop's information section:
The Himalayan salt lamp makes use of the minerals that have been preserved for millions of years, releasing their special properties through the introduction of heat from an electric bulb or from the flame of a candle. These special properties emitted from the Salt Lamp are responsible for promoting the health and wellness of individuals via ionization of the air and the eradication of pollution. The special properties Himalayan Crystal Salt Lamps consist of negatively charged ions that act on the contaminants in the air by neutralizing them and weighing them down so they can no longer circulate. When this occurs, individuals can breathe more easily and many ailments and allergies that frequently afflict them begin to diminish.
You can start out small like I did and work up into all sorts of sizes and shapes of salt lamps. You can get the salt lamps in shapes of animals such as dolphins, cats, turtles and bunnies. They even come in shapes of bowls and I have even seen some in lanterns and as candle holders. They also have the salts that can be used in bath salts. They also have a salt grinder should you need one to grind your salt chunks. They also have the salt inhaleer that Dr. Oz was talking about in my earlier paragraph. Whatever your need, you can find it at the Himalayan Salt Shop.

This is what I found under the About Us:
The Himalayan Salt Shop was founded in 2005 by Ernest Gaglione in the basement of a two family house in Bloomfield, NJ. Originally, Ernest had to lug his heavy inventory up and down steep basement stairs as he personally shipped each customer's order. As his company grew through hard work and perseverance, Ernest reached the point where he could afford a small office space in Parsippany, NJ. Ernest continued to expand by employing a fulfillment center to help with the shipping of orders.

Today the Himalayan Salt Shop is one of the biggest internet retailers of authentic Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps on the web. They also wholesale their products to businesses across the country. If you are looking to patronize a small business headed by a true hard-working American entrepreneur, you can feel confident buying from us. Also, if you have any questions, feel free to email Ernest personally at We thank you for your interest in our products.
