➜ No. A common misconception people have about Himalayan Salt Lamps is that they melt and eventually diminish like an ice cube. That is false.
➜ When moisture occurs, it is actually a sign that your Himalayan Salt Lamp is under utilised or you have been using with the wrong bulb.
➜ All our Himalayan Salt Lamps come with a marble base and a high quality, long lasting (European made) bulb in the size E14, 15W.
➜ Himalayan Salt Crystals can last forever under proper usage. They are energy efficient and will change the air quality, your health and energy in every room of your house and office.
➜ You do not have to replace Himalayan Salt Crystal unless you want to.
➜ Himalayan Salt Lamps only require low maintenance of changing bulbs when needed.
➜ Once every fortnight or once every month, it is recommended to switched off Himalayan Salt Lamp for a while, roughly about 15 to 30 minutes. This is to allow it to cool down and you can take a damp cloth to wipe it in order to keep the Himalayan Salt Crystal glistering.
➜ If you need to switch off lamp for a long period of time (e.g. family vacation etc), we suggest using ziplock bags or recyclable clean grocery bags. Switch lamp off, remove Himalayan Salt Crystal from marble base and store the entire Salt Crystal into the ziplock or plastic bag. In this case, it is kept in air constraint condition with no contact to humidity. Thus it will not sweat or produce moisture.
➜ No. LED bulbs are not recommended for usage with Himalayan Salt Lamps. This is because LED are considered as "cold energy" so it does not produce the warmth needed like a filament bulb does which is required to assist with the evaporation process and emitting of negative ions.
➜ The recommended bulb is Size E14, 15W. All our Himalayan Salt Lamps come with a Himalayan Salt Crystal, marble base and European made bulb as a set.
➜ The European made bulb we supply is long lasting and high quality. Bulb's lifespan depends on user. Frequent switching on and off will cause filament to fuse which is normal due to thermal expansion and contraction.
➜ Lifespan of our European made bulb is approximately months to years unlike the bulbs provided to you by other sellers are mostly Made in China/Taiwan which last around days or weeks at most.
For salt lamps to work there are 2 processes:
➜ The 1st process is the hygroscopic nature of the Himalayan Salt Crystal. It has the natural ability to absorb moisture really well therefore being able to assist with the air purification. Excessive moisture in the air can cause moulding, allergies symptoms to occur etc. As our Singapore's weather is incredibly humid, rain then shine rain then shine, humidity from rainfall can cause moisture build up. While having some humidity in the air is good but excessive humidity in the air can be damaging as bacteria and germs thrive under such condition. Thus having salt lamps at home are helpful as the water vapour may carry dust, pollution, pet dander, viruses etc. as well. Moreover, salt has amazing antibacterial properties.
➜ The 2nd process is the evaporation part, with the help from an incandescent bulb (those with filament) they produce warmth that can help Himalayan Salt Crystal to evaporate the absorbed moisture giving back purified air to our atmosphere. LED bulbs are not recommended as they are considered as cold energy. So when humidity is high and Himalayan Salt Crystal has absorbed moisture but without the warmth needed to give out clean air and negative ions, it may sweat and the socket/electrical parts may spoil. That is why we only provide our customers with the best possible quality of incandescent bulb which are the ones that are European made. Other sellers will give you the cheap Made in China or Taiwan bulbs that fuse easily.
➜ Himalayan Salt Lamps do not melt. It is not ice. It will dissolve when left fully submerged in water. The reason why your Himalayan Salt Lamp is sweating is due to humidity.
➜ Humidity is the concentration of water vapour present in air. Water vapour, the gaseous state of water, is generally invisible to the human eye.
➜ For instance, Singapore's weather is considered as humid, rain then shine, rain then shine. Therefore when your Himalayan Salt Lamp is under utilised or you have been using with the wrong bulb (LED or lower wattage bulb), your Himalayan Salt Crystal will sweat and produce moisture. This is normal as Salt is naturally hygroscopic which means it has the natural ability to absorb moisture really well.
➜ Humidity from rainfall can cause moisture build up. Excessive moisture in your air can cause moulding, allergies symptoms to occur etc. While having some humidity in the air is good but excessive humidity in the air can be damaging as germs and bacteria do best in a warm, moist environment. Thus having salt lamps at home are helpful as the water vapour may carry dust, pollution, pet dander, viruses etc.
➜ With the assistance of an incandescent bulb (those with filament) that produces warmth which can assist the Himalayan Salt Crystal to evaporate the absorbed moisture, giving back purified air to our atmosphere. LED bulbs are not recommended as they are considered as cold energy. So when humidity is high and Himalayan Salt Crystal has absorbed moisture but without the warmth needed to evaporate out clean air and negative ions, it may sweat and cause socket and electrical parts to spoil.
