You don't know what you're missing if you've never owned a Himalayan salt lamp. It's like having an open window a softly glowing natural source of fresh, clean air on your desk, in your living room, next to the bed, or anywhere you choose to put it. Hand selected from the Himalayan Mountains, each Globe Electric Himalayan Salt Lamp is made from hand etched strong blocks of antiquated precious stone salts and brought directly to you. Unique in pattern, color, shape and weight, it is a great resource for purifying air. This lovely little gem is known to help improve sleep, decrease stress, increase energy, improve breathing, reduce allergy symptoms and much more. In order to get the best results, it should be placed in an area where you invest a considerable amount of time. The in-line on/off rocker switch allows you to control when you need light and the 6-ft cord with polarized plug lets you place your lamp anywhere you want with ease. Have fun feeling great!
