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 Kana Himalayan/Hymilain Sea, Pink Crystal Salt Rock Lamp, Night Light, Real Rubber Wood Base,...

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

Pros:

  • Unlike other salt lamps that have cheap dimmer switches, Levoit uses a much better dimmer switch. It is big and works by touch. One tap turns it on and off. A prolonged hold either dims or brightens the light.(We amp it up when my GF and I are feeling sick or when my “sneezy” nephew comes over.)
  • I already talked about how it cleanses a room of pollutants but here’s some good news for pet owners. It can rid you of the strong smell of “kitty anointments“. Now you don’t need to be dubbed the smelly crazy cat lady anymore.
  • Great for sinus problems and asthma sufferers. My favorite testimonial on the WB Himalayan salt lamp product page is one customer’s story about how putting salt lamps in the room helped his 99-year-old father-in-law with COPD.
  • This particular brand has a good track record unlike the horror stories from some other distributors which range from broken or used junk or fire hazards to outright fakes.
  • The packaging is gorgeous. This is a big plus if you are giving them out as gifts as I normally do. (Christmas is around the corner, people!)

Cons:

  • Just the typical cons for a salt lamp: they are heavy and will ‘weep’ when exposed to high humidity. (Simply leave it always on if this happens so that it dries out.)

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.

Pros:

  • The cavity for the tea light is deep so there’s no danger of the candles dislodging accidentally.
  • Cheaper than a regular Himalayan salt lamp
  • Very sturdy
  • Brings a beautiful ambiance to a room
  • They came out bigger than I expected when I first ordered a pack
  • Relaxing

Cons:

  • As with any Himalayan salt lamp, it weeps in a humid room.
  • Unless you’re using electric tea lamps, you can’t leave it on all the time to avoid the weeping and the puddling. (This isn’t a problem in non-humid rooms, though.)

3 – WBM Salt Chunks and Basket

Himalayan Glow HS-1301B light bulbs, 8-10 LBS, Basket Lamp

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.

Pros:

  • Value for money; this particular product is cheaper than a regular Himalayan salt lamp
  • Very stylish and elegant; well constructed
  • A great addition if you’re collecting all the salt lamp styles
  • No bacon/caustic smoky smell for the holder unlike one other brand I purchased from (which I returned PDQ)

Cons:

  • You might experience minor problems with the bulb and the dimmer switch. If you do, contact their customer support for a replacement lamp.

4 – AMIR Salt Lamp Plug-in

AMIR (Upgraded) Salt Lamp, Natural Himalayan Crystal Salt Light with 4 Bulbs, 11.2oz Mini Hand...

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.

SMAGREHO-Mini-Himalayan-Salt-Lamp-Night-Light

Pros:

  • Great as a night light for a cozy room you like to spend quiet evenings or for a child’s bedroom (especially for one with allergies)
  • Each order gets you a unique color and glow which can be exciting when you’ve ordered several for different rooms and they light up with their unique luminescense
  • Small and handy; the plug-ins are a good option if you can’t have a table top Himalayan salt lamp

Cons:

  • You need a sturdy wall socket that can can firmly support the device or else the lamp will wobble from its heavy weight
  • You might have the misfortune of getting your bulb busted during delivery. If this happens, simply contact the seller for a replacement bulb

5 – Crystal Allies Globe Sphere

Crystal Allies Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp with Bulb, Dimmer Cord

If you are not attracted to the raw beauty of the regular Himalayan salt lamps, you can try out this salt sphere instead. It looks like a glowing planet. This is perfect for sci-fi buffs or as a gift for geeky kids.

This is Amazon’s Choice for sphere salt lamp.

Pros:

  • The round glowing globe is stunningly pretty and is a big hit with children
  • Comes with a 15 watt bulb that can really fill up a room with light. If you want to buy a bulb with lower wattage, just make sure the lamp is still getting warm as that’s when you get the benefits from your salt lamp.
  • The 6 foot cord is UL listed
  • The wood base is sturdy and comes with three ports

Cons:

  • There are reports that some units shipped with a busted bulb

I rushed to update this article when I stumbled upon this Himalayan artisan crystal bowl. It stands out from the other rather generic crystals I’ve been ordering because of the eye-popping designs.

Pros:

  • Very unique and unforgettable design options
  • You’ll have fun picking out a particular design for a friend (or yourself); I got the pineapple!
  • If you use essential oil, you can add a couple of drops of EO on top of the crystals
  • Responsive seller
