How are Salt Lamps made?
1. A Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp starts its journey in the Khewra Salt Mines.
2. Himalayan salt is excavated from the walls of the Khewra Salt Mine in huge slabs. These slabs of salt are then transported by truck to local factories that awaits local artisans to chisel each Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp by hand.
3. Mostly chisel into smaller pieces in their natural form, artisans would cut the bottom of the Himalayan Salt Pieces flat, and drill a hole in the center of the Himalayan Rock Salt to allow for the placing of lighting instruments which would provide the needed heating source to create the all natural negative ions.
4. The Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp is then completed with the addition of a base.
We now use a Marble Base for our Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp
A wooden base was formerly used to place the Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp but because of the natural ability for Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp to draws water molecules which damages the wooden base completely- we now use a marble base.
