What causes a Himalayan salt lamp to sweat? (Is it a fault?)

Why do my Himalayan salt lamp’s sides sweat? If you’ve never had a Himalayan salt lamp, you may be wondering why the surface appears to be leaking water yet there is an easy answer.

Your lamp is fashioned from natural crystal salt mined deep underground near the Himalayas’ foothills. Each is made from a lovely, one-of-a-kind piece of crystal that has formed over millions of years, although it is still salt and salt is naturally absorbent, it absorbs moisture. It thus functions as a purifier.

The moisture that your salt lamp collects has a distinct look of perspiration, and this is due to the fact that it purifies the air while doing so.

It’s just who they are. It isn’t their fault at all; rather, it is part of their nature. If your Himalayan salt lamp doesn’t absorb moisture, it’s likely a fake. However, there are things you can do to make sure your Himalayan salt lamp doesn’t sweat or leak too much.

Make your salt lamp part of your home by taking care of it. It will be a treasured item in your home for a long time.

If a Himalayan salt lamp is sweating, what should you do?

Understanding the inner working of your Himalayan salt lamp is critical if you want to keep it from leaking or perspiring.

Salt attracts moisture, so keeping it dry is the best method to prevent this. The easiest way to maintain your Himalayan salt lamp dry is to leave it on. It’s fine to keep your Himalayan salt lamp on for lengthy periods of time since it’s lit by a low-wattage bulb.

When your salt lamp is warmed and moist, it dries out and the issue of sweating goes away. It will also assist you in increasing feelings of well-being and combating a wide range of illnesses from asthma to insomnia.

How to prevent it sweating

Other than these two methods, there are a variety of other things you can do to help your Himalayan salt lamp stop sweating. They include:

Leaving it on

To prevent your salt lamp from sweating, keep it on for at least 16 hours each day and ideally 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Even though we would advise you to turn it off when you go out.

Giving it a wipe

By wiping your Himalayan salt lamp with a slightly moistened cloth, you can remove any extra moisture. Use caution not to use a wet cloth because this will dissolve the salt.

Paying attention

Take notice of your light. If it begins to perspire, it’s a sign that you haven’t switched it on for long enough.

Watching the weather

When the air is humid or wet, make sure your Himalayan salt lamp is on.

Placing it on a plate

Don’t be alarmed if you discover a pool of moisture around your Himalayan salt lamp. This is completely natural. If you can’t keep it on, place it on a mat or plate instead.

Putting it in a dry area

Keeping it away from humid places in your house is a good idea. If you don’t want your Himalayan salt lamp to sweat, for example, do not put it in the bathroom.

Keeping it indoors

Similarly, you may not want to put it outside in a humid environment.

 Storing it

When not in use, store the cord and wrap it in a plastic bag to keep your Himalayan salt lamp in its best possible condition.

Even if you want to put your Himalayan salt lamp in a location where it is particularly vulnerable to dampness, there’s no need to be concerned. You don’t have to worry about it at all as long as you keep it on and wrap it carefully when you are away on holiday.

This is a crystal that has lain beneath the earth for millennia, and as long as you care for it, you will be able to enjoy it for many more years. Why not browse the amazing selection of Himalayan salt lamps at Gemstone Gifts to see how beneficial they may be?
