Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp
What Does the Himalayan Salt Detoxer Do?
Himalayan salt works in a number of ways:
- When the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp is warmed, the salt helps release negative ions that are anti-microbial, air purifying, skin purifying and that promote a sense of well being. Purifying the air by binding positive ions helps dust and allergens to settle.
- The warmth of the stone causes the feet to sweat, allowing the salt to purify and cleanse. Toxins are pulled out and minerals pulled in, thus decreasing unhealthy acidity. This also helps ease tiredness, aching, and symptoms of stress caused by over-exertion.
- As well, the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp softens and gently exfoliates the skin as it binds with the salt through the moisture on the hands and feet.
- It is the source of many vital nutrients. Himalayan salt can contain as many as 84 natural minerals vital to health that can be absorbed through the skin.
- Like gem-quality stones, the powerful crystalline structure works by opening up energy pathways, dispelling negative energy, improving both concentration and circulation and harmonizing thought patterns, while the amplifying life force helps to maintain health and well-being.
- The Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp is the perfect reminder of the healing qualities we experience at the ocean. It assists in the realignment of the body’s subtle magnetic energy field to help facilitate healthier cellular development and more cohesive thinking. Some say there is no thought or action without the presence of salt in the body.
- The Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp helps to re-attune the body to the Schumann resonance, sometimes called the heart beat of Mother Earth which helps ease nervousness, insomnia and lack of concentration while helping to clear cancer causing free radicals from the body.
- It is a source of natural color therapy. The orange tones calm and help you feel more secure, yellows brighten your mind, reds strengthen, pinks inspire loving feelings, white cleanses and the brown tones balance and ground you.

How Long Should the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp Be Used for Each Session?
Initially we recommend 10 to 20 minute sessions. When this is comfortable, an individual may progress to 30 minutes to a maximum of 60 minutes. It can be used for one long session or for a few shorter sessions during the day. Please discontinue use if there is any discomfort.
How Do I Turn It On and Adjust the Temperature?
Heat is controlled by using the UL-approved dimmer switch. Before using the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp turn the dial on the dimmer switch to the maximum level for 10-20 minutes. Then, once the salt is a comfortable temperature, turn the switch back to the mid-point. Periodic temperature adjustment of the unit, by rotating the dimmer control switch up or down, may be needed. This will maintain the preferred level of warmth. Salt is a temperature sink (which means it holds heat very well), but temperature changes are not immediate so please take care, especially if you feel the dome is too hot. Even when removed from the base it will feel warm for a number of minutes.
Are There Any Precautions Before I Begin to Use the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp?
We firmly believe in the benefits of the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp, but we make no medical claims to cure, treat or prevent any kind of disease. Before using the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp please seek appropriate medical advice if you have symptoms that are of concern. Such concerns may include:
- Already being under medical supervision
- Currently taking medication for a pre-existing condition
- Are diabetic or have diminished sensation in your feet
Can the Salt Detoxifier Be Used with Oils or Lotions?
The heat from the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp will both activate and drive all oils or lotions more deeply into the skin. Use a patch test on your skin prior to using the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp to ensure you have no sensitivity to any of ingredients contained in the oil or lotion you use. Remember, it is possible to have a reaction to even the most pure and wholesome ingredients.
In a professional setting you may choose to use cotton socks on the client’s feet after applying oil or lotion or cover the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp with a thin cotton towel in order to protect the salt dome surface from the oil or lotion.
How Should I Clean the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp?
Salt itself is a cleanser. It is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral, so there should be few worries in terms of contamination or infection. If it is necessary to clean the surface:
- Take a slightly damp cloth and gently wipe once or twice.
- Professional users may wish to wipe the surface with an approved sanitizing cleaner.
For more extensive cleaning:
- Let the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp cool completely.
- Run it under cool water and scrub the surface with a plastic scrub brush to remove any oil residue.
- Allow the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp to dry completely before reusing.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not use a very wet cloth as this will dissolve the salt gradually or cause it to crack.
What Should I Do If the Salt Surface Starts to Look “Crusty”?
This is usually due to the surface getting damp either from the moisture content in the air, from a hand or foot that has touched the surface or from water droplets that have gone undetected. To prevent “crusting”, the Detoxify Himalayan Salt Lamp should be wrapped in a plastic bag then sealed OR kept lit on low when not in use. To repair moisture damage, wipe off the crumbly salt and put the Detoxer on high for 30 minutes to make sure it is thoroughly dry.
