The Himalayan salt lamps clear the mind, filtrate the air in your room and enable you to sleep much better. However, since they are that healthy, these lamps are not always original and some people want to get a business out of it.
Here are 5 signs how you will know if you Himalayan lamp is fake:
1 – It’s White And Very Cheap
White Himalayan salt lamps should cost a little bit more than expected, since the white Himalayan salt is more difficult to find than the pink one. So, to know if your lamp is the right one, look at price tags higher than $50.
If you do manage to find a lamp like this, it will help with the detoxification and healing process.
2 – It’s Quite Heavy, And Doesn’t Emit Light
A standard Himalayan salt weighs over 20 pounds, so make sure to notice that.
Your Himalayan lamp should light your entire room, so if that’s the case you’re on the right path.
3 – It’s Indestructible
Himalayan salt lamps are very fragile by nature, so if your lamp seems resistant, it is probably fake.
4 – The Lamp Is Good With Moisture
Himalayan salt producers always advise to keep your lamp in a cool, dry area. If the salt intakes moisture it is going to shrink.
Try doing a test, where you expose your lamp to a damp towel and rub it gently. If you notice change in color in the lamp and it starts ‘dropping’ then it is probably real- otherwise, get rid of it fast.
5 – Nothing Changes
The Himalayan salt lamp is healthy, yes, but it is not a miracle worker. However, if you have the right lamp, in just a couple of weeks you will notice many improvements, such as:
- Less allergy or asthma symptoms
- Boost of energy
- Improved sleeping habits
- Reduced signs of depression
- Lowered stress levels
Be careful not to choose a fake one, since it can contain harmful compounds aside from the salt, such as toxins.
