Pink Salt VS Table Salt

Pink Salt VS Table Salt

Why is Himalayan Salt considered better than other Salts?

Himalayan Crystal Mineral Salt has been maturing over the past 250 million years under intense tectonic pressure, creating an environment of zero exposure to any toxins, pollutants and impurities. The Salt Crystals unique cellular structure allows the Salt to store vibrational (healing) energy. Himalayan Mineral Salt crystals and minerals exist in a colloidal form; meaning, that they are tiny enough for our cells to easily absorb.

Himalayan Crystal Mineral Salt traced over 80 minerals that our bodies are made up of, and needed.


Many people are unaware that common table salt contains many harsh chemicals. Salt is necessary for our diet but can be dangerous if taken in this chemical form. Most common table salt is composed of 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals like iodine and absorbents.

Common table and cooking salt found in most homes, restaurants, and processed foods is void of any nutritional value, lacking beneficial trace minerals. Processing Salt turns it into sodium chloride, unnatural salt the human body actually sees as a toxic invader. The body cannot dispose of it in a natural, healthy way which can lead to inflammation of the tissues, water retention and high blood pressure.

Studies show that for each gram of table salt your system cannot process, your body will use over twenty times the amount of cellular water to neutralize the sodium chloride in chemically-treated salt.

5 Signs Your Himalayan Salt Lamp Is A Fake One!

5 Signs Your Himalayan Salt Lamp Is A Fake One!

1. A fake Himalayan salt lamp won’t show signs of moisture.
Real Himalayan salt lamps are naturally hygroscopic, which means they absorb moisture from their surroundings and recycle this as pure air. This is why Himalayan salt lamps will sometimes sweat, ‘weep’ or show beads of moisture on their exterior.

A fake Himalayan salt lamp will not have these hygroscopic properties, and won’t show these signs of moisture. If you’ve never seen your salt lamp sweating (especially in humid environments), this could be a red flag that your salt lamp is fake.

2. A fake Himalayan salt lamp will NOT be fragile.
Himalayan salt lamps are crafted from ancient crystals, which makes them extremely delicate and fragile. If your Salt lamp is super solid and doesn’t seem like it could break easily, this could be a warning sign that your lamp is a fake.

Real Himalayan salt lamps need to be handled with extreme care, as they can be easily broken if treated incorrectly. A fake Himalayan salt lamp will appear extremely durable and resistant to damage, so look out for this red flag when exploring your options.

3. A fake Himalayan salt lamp will be extremely bright.
If your salt lamp can easily light up an entire room, this could be another sign that it’s a fake.

Authentic Himalayan salt lamps are renowned for their pinkish orange amber glow, which is why they’re often recommended as nightlights. A salt lamp that appears overpoweringly bright (rather than soft and subtle) is a good indication it could be fake.

4. A fake Himalayan salt lamp may be suspiciously light.
Salt is a heavy mineral, which is why Himalayan salt lamps (especially in large sizes) should also feel quite heavy. If your Himalayan salt lamp feels suspiciously light and easy to handle, this could indicate that it’s been crafted from imitation salt, and not the real thing.

5. A fake Himalayan salt lamp supplier will be unreputable.
It’s so important to thoroughly research your supplier before purchasing to help you check their authenticity. If your supplier has an amateur-looking or poorly written website, negative reviews, and lacks details about how and where their lamps are sourced, this should be a clear warning sign about their credibility.
