What is Himalayan crystal salt?
About 250 million years ago, what is nowadays the Himalayan mountain range was covered by a primordial ocean. When the Indian sub-continent hit Asia, the ocean floor started to rise and created a huge salt lake. Eventually this salt lake evaporated and formed the salt layers in the Salt Range in India and Pakistan. Himalayan crystal salt contains the same minerals and trace elements of which the human body is composed.
Is Himalayan crystal salt different from other mined salts?
Crystal salt is found in many places around the world. It is the salt from ancient oceans which covered the earth. Therefore, all crystal salts are similar in structure and mineral content, although individual minerals occur in different concentrations depending on the location. Even in a single location the salt can be quite different from layer to layer. Different mineral concentrations change the color of the salt and impurities, such as small veins of clay, are clearly visible. That is why it is so important to manually select the salt crystal blocks before they are crushed for human consumption. In our Pakistani factory, fist-size blocks that can not "hide" impurities are hand picked, then washed and sun-dried. These 100% pure crystal salt blocks are then hammer crushed and sieved to separate the coarse salt from the fine salt.
It is important to note what Aloha Bay means when they are discussing mined salts. For Aloha Bay, mined salts are harvested directly, in smaller or bigger chunks, from the salt layers in the earth. However, a lot of today's table salt is flushed out of similar layers by injecting water into them and then evaporating the brine that is pumped up. This process, and the subsequent "purification" phase, reduces the salt to pure sodium chloride, eliminating all minerals and trace elements.
Salt crystals absorb moisture from the air. To avoid "sweating" of the salt, and possible salt water damage: Only use your Himalayan Salt Candle Holder in warm and dry areas and always install your Salt Candle Holder on a water tight surface. To change the 15W light bulb: Disconnect the power plug from the outlet, then pull the electrical fitting from the lamp. Only use heat-resistant bulbs ("oven" type).
Only use your Himalayan Salt Lamp in heat-regulated, dry areas. Wait until your lamp is dry before switching it on. Always place your salt lamp away from children and pets.

I already knew the claimed 'benefit' before using it so I may be somehow influenced, but both my husband (who had no clue what it was) and I like it a lot, for warm, calming color it adds to the room, and it does seem to feel calm going in to the room after keeping it on for an hour or so. You can't read under this light, but is perfect "winding down" type of light before going to sleep. 4 star as I can't compare with any other ones as this is the first crystal salt lamp I used before, but I am getting it again for my sister in law. It already comes in very securely packaged box.
Beautiful: creates wonderful ambiance in any room.
