6 Signs Your Himalayan Salt Lamp is a Fake!

By: Ginny Marston

Whether you already own one or you’re in the market for a Himalayan salt lamp, take the time to learn about the salt lamps and make sure you choose the best option possible! There are several ways to tell if you have a salt lamp that is authentic.

Your lamp is not authentic if:

  1. It doesn’t sweat – Himalayan salt lamps cleanse the air around them by absorbing moisture in the air and attaching airborne particles, then evaporating pure water back out of the environment. This process is called hygroscopy. It is responsible for one of the most common issues regarding owning a genuine Himalayan salt lamp – sweating.
  2. It is very durable – A genuine Himalayan pink salt product easily chips if it comes into contact with another solid object. They are very fragile, so if you have one that you have dropped, collided into with another object, and it has held up without damage, it might not be authentic.
  3. It is very bright – Himalayan salt lamps have a color range from dark orange down to medium pink. Due to the composition of multiple minerals, light emerging from it will be uneven and muted in areas. This is why the lamp gives off such a beautiful warm glow. If your lamp is bright enough to light a room it probably is not a real one.
  4. The origin of your Salt lamp is not from Pakistan – Khewra is the place where the Himalayan pink salt originates from the Himalayan Mountains. You can also check its origin or ask for specifications, just be sure that the place where your lamp originated is Khewra, which will indicate the authenticity of you lamp.
  5. Poor or inflexible return policy – Since the lamps are fragile they can often be damaged during delivery. A company that sells an authentic lamp will be ready to exchange or have the item returned.
  6. Nothing changes – After a few weeks of having a Himalayan salt lamp in your home you should notice a few things, such as: decreased stress, improvement in depression, more energy, better sleep, and /or reduced allergy or asthma symptoms. If you don’t you may have a fake lamp.

Unfortunately, sometimes these characteristics will only be made known to you if you read reviews very carefully or, the less desirable scenario, once you’ve been actually using it in your home for a while – so don’t throw that receipt out right away!

Love and light to all!

mommaAbout the Author: Hello, my name is Ginny. I am originally from Long Island, NY but now live in beautiful Florida. I am a Registered Nurse, a healer by nature. Having worked in trauma, I have been with those at the time of passing as well as given comfort to their families. As a child and teen I exhibited special gifts but they faded as my life journey went to raising a family and having a career. It wasn’t until my Grandmother, and then Father, passed that I yearned to be able to see and speak to them to ensure they were at peace and to tell them the things that I wished I had when they were here on Earth. On October 10, 2016, I tragically lost my youngest daughter, Christina. This led me to ‘go down the rabbit hole’ with my grief, pain, and the empty place in my heart only Christina could fill. The note that I laid with her was “You will never be alone as at the time of your death a piece of my heart died with you.” Many of my spiritual friends began to reach out to me, I began to look for signs she was still here with us, and channeled my energy to go back in time to renew my gifts so that I could not only speak with Christina, as I had with my other passed love ones, but to also learn more about her new journey. Christina’s and my journey are just beginning and I hope to share not only my journey with her but how you too can connect with your loved one. Follow us on Facebook!
