Salt Crystal Lamp



My mum bought this a few months ago. Since I am free recently, I dig out some info regarding salt crystal lamp. Do you believe this bloody ordinary salt will actually benefit us so stupendously?

To my amaze, this lamp has to be switched on 24 hours ceaselessly. If it were ever switched off for a short period, it would start sweating which I don't understand the underlying reason. Supposely things melt when they are heated but salt crystal lamp is just to the contrary.

If you are interested, this is the history of it.

I found it weird too that it gives so many benefits ... many people have it in their house ...

I saw many in one of my friends's house before XD

My mum even asked me to put one at PJ house @.@ to minimize my nose sensitiviy and asthma; however I didn't do so as it is not cheap and I'm skeptical it actually benefits us amazingly...

haha..i got one in each room except my parents room...n one more in the living room..

u noe wat..

my uncle is so out-of-his-mind when he realize that his crystal salt lamp is 'sweating'..

hence, guess wat,

instead of switching on the lamp everyday, he painted it with a coat of white paint to prevent the 'sweating' to occur..weird huh?

i ony got to noe it during one my CNY visitation last year..

lol

i kinda think dat this lamp is USELESS..The seller told my mum that this lamp can ward off mosquitoes..but, there is still lots of mosquitoes bitting me at nite..my house is like a living jungle to me..=.=

The Salt Man said...

The salt lamps "sweat" because salt absorbs moisture from the air, and yours sweats a lot because it is not from Poland but from Pakistan, and their salt has different physical properties that cause the salt to absorb a lot of moisture from the surrounding air. Polish salt is older geologically and a will hardly ever "sweat" which makes it a superior and more desirable than others.

Nice to meet you, the salt man...

Thanks for the invaluable knowledege...

Then how come when we switch on the bulb, the salt no longer "sweats"? Is it because the heat dries it up?
