Himalayan Salt Shop - Heck Of A Holiday Review and Giveaway

*To see the Rafflecopter form and to enter giveaway, please click on the actual blog post.  You will not be able to enter from main page.*

I've always been fascinated by salt lamps. With their original shapes and overall visual appeal, I find them interesting to look at. Other than being representational of nature's beauty, Himalayan salt lamps are also beneficial to reducing symptoms of illnesses. In no way should salt lamps be considered medical devices, but they are known to reduce indoor air pollutants by emitting negative ions.

The Himalayan Salt Shop, stocked with salt lamps, bath salts and apothecary products, was founded in 2005 by Ernest Gaglione. Ernest was kind enough to send me a 6-8 lb. Himalayan Salt Lamp to review. Included with the lamp was a UL listed cord with bulb, a wooden base, and an information sheet.

This is what my Himalayan salt lamp looks like when it's not lit.

This is what my Himalayan salt lamp looks like when it's lit up.

My oldest son and I are collectors of geodes and rocks, so the salt lamp I received made a perfect fit among that collection in my living room. The salt lamp itself is securely attached to a wooden base. The bulb fits inside a hole at the bottom to light up the lamp and I'm able to place the bulb either up high or down low inside the lamp. The cord it comes with has a switch to turn it on or off. I am in awe of the natural beauty of the lamp. It is made of authentic Himalayan crystal salt, and the coloring and pattern is simply beautiful. When I don't need full lighting in my front room, I turn on the salt lamp and it sets forth a captivating glow.  I appreciate how this piece looks as decor and as a lamp.

Win It!

One person will win a Himalayan salt lamp.

I've wanted one of these for a long time now! I want a Turtle for my son's room and a Bunny for my daughters room. And of course I want one for the living room and our bedroom. These lamps are so neat!
