So, if you’re looking for a Himalayan salt lamp for your own home, or wanting to give one out as a gift, check out my personal preferences.

When I first discovered salt lamps, all I knew were the raw crystals. Later, I discovered that they come in many shapes and forms. Some of my favorites show surprising craftsmanship. I guarantee that after buying your first salt lamp, you’ll find you’ll want more for your home.

1 – Levoit Himalayan Salt Lamp

LEVOIT Himalayan Salt Lamp,Pink Salt Rock Large Crystal Natural Himilian Sea Salt Lamp with...

If you’ve been following our site for the last few years, you’d know that we have stayed with one brand of Himalayan salt lamps. However, the Levoit salt lamps came out and they’ve been my brand of choice ever since. The build is simply superior and has made my worries about fire hazards almost non-existent.

If you ever ordered or bought a shoddy salt lamp and then gotten your hands on one of these Levoit salt lamps, you’ll be able to tell the difference immediately. They’re not the #1 Himalayan salt lamps on Amazon for nothing. And the reviews are genuine, too

The most frequently asked question about salt lamps seems to be if they can be used for food. Please don’t use the crystal of your salt lamp for food. You can easily buy the food-grade Himalayan table salt for cheaper.

2 – HemingWeigh Tea Lights

HemingWeigh Himalayan Natural Crystal Salt Rock Tea Light Candle Holder 2 Pack

If you don’t want to break your budget but still want to try out Himalayan salt rocks, try getting a tea light first. This is basically a candle holder and you put a tea light into it. When the salt rock is warmed, the ionizing effect happens and you get all the benefits you would similarly get from a regular Himalayan salt lamp.

For those who don’t like a naked flame, it’s possible to use electric tea lights – as long as they get hot enough.

This is Amazon’s Choice for meditation candles.

3 – WBM Salt Chunks and Basket

Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp, Tall Round Metal Basket lamp with Dimmer Switch | 8-10 lbs

If you want a more elegant style for your Himalayan salt, you can check out Himalayan salt chunks in metal baskets or holders. The holders are usually elegantly ornate and the smaller chunks of Himalayan salt look very pretty sitting in the metal baskets.

The effect is still the same and you get all the benefits you would get from a regular Himalayan salt lamp.

This is Amazon’s Choice for salt lamp basket.

After collecting all sizes and colors of Himalayan salt lamps and getting a couple of the salt chunks in beautiful metal holders, I discovered these night lights. In the beginning, I didn’t see the whole point. However, after stubbing my toes too often in the dark and finding only ugly night lights in the stores, I thankfully remembered these beautiful crystal night lights.

Just look at these photos. They seriously add something to a room. I personally like the beauty of raw unpolished rock.
