Frequently Asked Questions
- In terms of effect on surrounding air, what's the difference between Premium and Standard Persian salt lamps, as well as your other purple salt products?
The only known difference between our two varieties is visual. Premium lamps are very rich in color with and more solid in color, while our Standard lamps contain a mixture of purple shades with white salt that ranges from clear quartz to creamy colored. The natural effects they have on surrounding indoor air are identical to each other, and appear to be just as effective as premium Himalayan salt crystal.
Candleholders are similarly categorized, however, the overall impact any salt candleholder has in indoor air, when lit, is minimal at best. Our baskets, as with any basket filled with salt chunks, are highly effective due to amount of exposed surface area of the salt which adds up to a very large salt lamp in square inches - this is our theory nased on our own observational evidence.
- What causes the purple color in Persian Salt?
Our salt contains high amounts of natural potassium, and as far as we know this is the origin of Persian salt's purple/blue color. If you missed it, check out this page on where our salt lamps could have come from.
- I've seen these purple lamps elsewhere, so how are you an exclusive distributor?
We are not the first to bring these salt lamps into North America, we are the first to bring these directly from the source rather than via brokers in Europe, Mexico, and elsewhere. We have the largest stock, highest quality, and best prices because our overhead is much lower without the middleman.
- I'm a business owner interested in selling your products, do you offer wholesale pricing?
We plan on offering wholesale pricing to qualified businesses in the very near future. Stay tuned!
- What if I'm not satisfied with my purchase?
We feel this is very unlikely, as we've been in the salt lamp business for over 5 years and with a 30day Satisfaction Guarantee, we have maintained an ongoing return rate of less than 1%. Every order item is visually inspected, electrically tested, and professionally packed for shipment. We're rather particular when it comes to a salt lamp.
However, in the event you are not satisfied for any reason within 30 days of delivery, please contact us for a hassle-free RMA number and instructions for return. Buyer is responsible for return shipping. Upon receipt in working order, a full refund will be issued promptly.
- What can I expect, in benefits to health, from a Persian salt Lamp?
The best advice is to expect nothing. As with all types of homeopathy, the degree of effect depends on the user; and, in the case of a salt lamp, much depends on the indoor environmental state. For example, carpetting, paint, animals, humidity, fresh air exchange, and other pre-existing conditions can affect the noticeable outcome of what a salt lamp can do. There is no magic chart to determine environmental or bio-physical needs. We do not sell these lamps as medical devices or treatment, but the evidence is undeniable that a salt crystal lamp can improve the quality of surrounding indoor air.
- Do Persian salt lamps create ozone?
- Will these lamps bother my allergies or asthma?
On the contrary, the natural effect of this salt lends itself to helping reduce asthma symptoms and airborne respiratory allergens.
