THEN STOP ! DO NOT PAY FOR A BOGUS SALT LAMP WITH YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY
The day by day popularity of Himalayan pink salt lamps has resulted in a booming demand for these natural air purifiers. The increasing demand has provided a chance to opportunists to cheat the buyers with fake and cheaply manufactured Himalayan pink salt lamps.
The truth is that you are a perfect target for the “big business” of those counterfeiters as you actually do not know what you are buying and you are not able to distinguish a good product from a hoax. It is not always possible to tell apart a real salt lamp from a fake one, but here we are to tell you a few basics to help you buy an authentic one.
- Know the Country of Origin of the Himalayan Salt
Pakistan is the only country from where real Himalayan pink salt is obtained. The salt is mined from Khewra Salt Mines of province Punjab, Pakistan. If the Country of Origin is other than Pakistan, it is not real.
- You are Getting A White Crystal for a Cheap Price
Colors of commonly available salt lamps vary from shades of pinks and oranges, although rare , white crystals of Himalayan rock salt do exist. White crystals are in high demand so have a high price. If you are getting a White Crystal in the Price of a colored lamp, this is an indication of fake product.
- The Salt Lamp has a Very Bright Glow
Don’t get carried away with bright glow and luminosity of the lamp. The color of real lamp will range from medium pink to orange and light coming out from the lamp will be soft and jagged.
- Salt Lamp is Dry and Crisp to Touch
The salt lamps are hygroscopic. They cleanse the air around them by absorbing moisture and combat the excessive positive ions (bacteria, molds and allergens) by binding to them. Once these airborne pollutants have been locked in the salt, clean water is re-released thus causing “sweating“. So if the lamp does not feel sweaty or wet, it is a counterfeit.
- The Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp Is Very Tough
Salts are fragile and if you are offered a durable lamp and assured of toughness for accidental chipping, beware that you are getting a bogus product.
- The Return Policy is Poor
These lamps are very fragile so the manufacturers and suppliers offer flexible return policies. If your vendor is diffident about returns, think twice if you are being cheated and getting a counterfeit Himalayan salt lamps.
- No Changes In Health and Surrounding
This cannot help in buying the lamp but can tell you whether your lamp is authentic. If you are using the appropriately sized lamp regularly there must be positive effects on your health and environment. The air around you must feel light , you should also feel lighter and healthier, energetic and experience an elevated mood and better sleep. If not, you may not have a genuine salt lamp.
