The Himalayan Salt Shop was founded in 2005 by Ernest Gaglione in the basement of a two family house in Bloomfield, NJ. Originally, Ernest had to lug his heavy inventory up and down steep basement stairs as he personally shipped each customer’s order. As his company grew through hard work and perseverance, Ernest reached the point where he could afford a small office space in Parsippany, NJ. Ernest continued to expand by employing a fulfillment center to help with the shipping of orders.Today the Himalayan Salt Shop is one of the biggest internet retailers of authentic Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamps on the web.
The Himalayan Salt Shop caught my eye with it’s beauty and amazed me with information I never knew. Such as, that the lamp inside of the salt rock causes the salt to create negative ions that bond with pollutants in the air and neutralizes them! They’re pretty fascinating! Here are some other ways that a Himalayan Salt Lamp is beneficial!
- These lamps are made of natural crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains
- The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base
- This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content
- Heat from the bulb (in our lamps) or flame (in our candle holders) causes the salt to emit negative ions
- These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them
- Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation
- In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home
- Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products
- Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful
I was given a Himalayan Salt Lamp (6-8lbs) which is common to start with, they’re wonderful for bedroom decor. I set it next to the unique hand carved statue my husband found of a Mother and her child. It fit perfectly. During the day it appears as a unique crystal stone and at night it glows with a beautiful shimmer.
I am unable to actually attest to whether the negative ions in the air help the pollutants neutralize, but I do know that the lamp is unique, it makes me feel comfortable as I read with it by my bedside and that my children love it very much; my eldest wanting one of his own. They’d make a perfect fit for any home. On the nightstand (like mine) on the coffee table, a corner table or even the bathroom! You can get whole packages for bedrooms and your house, or just one; something simple and special just for you. You can even get them in animal shapes.
You can also purchase bath salts, organic foods, inhalers and more from Himalayan Salt Lamps. They have a wide array of healthy products that sooth the mind and body. Their customer service is remarkable, having stemmed from a man that personally delivered every purchased salt lamp, the company carries the same care and consideration as it’s founder. They’re a very extraordinary store and I truly think that within it you will find something uniquely yours.
