A natural Himalayan salt lamp needs heat from a light bulb to work properly. That’s why it’s recommended to keep these light sources switched on for purifying indoor air and reducing the bad effects of pollutants found in the air.
Most importantly, low-heat LED lighting fixtures must never be used within a rock salt lamp, as they don’t work well.
Himalayan salt lamps are hygroscopic, which means they attract minute water vapours from the surrounding air. There is a special heat emitting Himalayan salt lamp replacement bulb that warms up salt crystals to disperse the moisture.
Your himalayan rock salt lamp must feel warm to touch and moisture-free. If it contains any moisture, then the Himalayan salt lamp bulb needs replacement with a higher watt bulb.
The natural himalayan rock salt lamp needs an incandescent Himalayan salt lamp light bulb that generates heat. Around 15-watt bulbs are generally used but 25-watt and 40-watt light bulbs are ideal for larger Himalayan salt lamps.
There are a few essential factors to consider when buying salt replacement bulbs:
Use a 15-watt Himalayan salt lamp light bulb for small to medium-sized Himalayan rock salt lamps that weigh up to 10 pounds.
Use a 25-watt bulb for large size Himalayan rock salt lamps that weight around 11 to 20 pounds.
Use a high-watt rock salt lamp bulb for the extra-large Himalayan salt lamp.
Look for E12 candelabra bulb socket (except the ones that require different light fitting).
Salt lamp's light bulbs must be thin and not wide. Tubular and torpedo designs are preferable for wide bulbs that touch salt and attract moisture.
Check that the natural crystal himalayan rock salt lamps are made by a professional and reputed company. Long-lasting Himalayan rock salt lamp light bulbs help you save money in the long run.
