What Size Himalayan Salt Lamp Do I Need


A beautiful addition to any home decor is the Himalayan Salt Lamp.  These lamps however are more than just beautiful.  Himalayan salt lamps are said to have many health benefits.

The heat from the bulb causes the salt in the lamp to omit negative ions, which bond to the positive ions in the air (dust, pollutants) neutralizing them and naturally purifying the air.

To accomplish this more to the maximum efficiency,  what size Himalayan salt lamp do I need is something to be taken into consideration.

My bedroom for example is 12 x 12.  A 5 to 7 pound salt lamp will cover a small bedroom of about 10×10.  I am sure I could make do with just one by my bed, but I elected to purchase 2 Himalayan Salt Lamps.

I have a tv in my room.  Himalayan salt lamps combat electro-smog caused by electrical devices in your home.  If your room has a computer, tv or other electrical device, you may want to take this into consideration.  I could also have opted for just one larger salt lamp, say 9 to 11 pounds, but I really like the ambiance of the two.

14×14 sq. feet (living room) – 13 to 17 pounds

30×30 sq. feet (joined rooms & commercial spaces) – 40 to 50 pounds

Cats Like Himalayan Salt Lamps Too!

Now of course if you have a larger room, you can buy several smaller lamps as opposed to one big one and spread them out.  I really think this is more effective if you happen to have an abundance of electrical outlets.

Some older homes however, are limited in the amount and placement of electrical outlets and one big one would work better for you.  You can buy these lamps in packages if you want to protect your entire home here at the Himalayan Salt Shop

One thing I love about my Himalayan Salt lamp aside from it’s just beautiful and creates a magical atmosphere with it’s ambient glow, is it acts as a natural deodorizer.

My home just smells fresher.  I leave mine on almost all the time. Note,  I also have pets and a salt lamp helps with that pet smell.  My daughters dog sleeps with her and her room does not smell like a dog!

Himalayan salt lamps are said to have great benefits for allergy sufferers as well and here in the south, it’s pollen season.

If you want a beautiful accent to your home that also has health and other benefits, A Himalayan salt lamp in the right size may be what you need.

Now you know what size salt lamp you need to buy.  I buy all my Himalayan salt lamps and other salt accessories at the Himalayan Salt Shop  

They specialize in this Himalayan salt industry alone and are a trusted source. Their salt lamps are authentic and no fake Himalayan Salt Lamps sold here.   I like that even if I buy a package of more than one, they are in individual boxes and I can give them away as gifts. Himalayan Salt Lamps make great gifts

And of course there is also Amazon and big box stores, but be careful.  There are a lot of fake salt lamps out there. I buy all of mine from the Himalayan Salt Shop.  I know they are the real deal and a trusted resource for all of my Himalayan salt needs.

    Thanks for the information Robin. I have been seriously considering getting a Himalayan Salt lamp, but now that I know that ‘size does matter’, I am more the wiser when I am ready to purchase.

    I bought one earlier this week as my home office is an electro-magnetic hotbed! Computer, masts for wireless internet reception, wireless router – you name it! So though my office is about a 3 x 3m space (10 x 10ft) I bought a large one to combat all that electro smog. I have been suffering from serious brain fog for months – if not years now – and since having that lamp in my office, I notice a distinct improvement. Today I decided to go ahead and purchase another smaller (medium size) lamp for my bedroom which is basically next door to my office – so impressed am I with this amazing lamp! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
