Don't get daunted. It’s a simple and straight forward process and we’re here to show you the ropes!
First off, congratulations on your new salt lamp and investing in your health and wellness. For those who received it as a gift, congratulations on having such awesome friends/family.
1) Remove the plastic packaging.
2) Screw your bulb into your UL dimmer cord making sure its screwed in firmly.
3) Insert the dimmer cord into the base of your salt lamp every so gently. Take a look at the image below for clarification.
The answer to this is pretty simple. You must keep it on and you must keep it warm.
Salt is Hygroscopic which means it absorbs moisture. Salt Lamps absorb humidity moisture from the air, and when they are turned off they can Shed or “cry” if the weather is quite humid or if you live close to the beach or a lake. If you do need to have it turned off for a long period of time, please wrap in a plastic bag or cling wrap to prevent weeping. Or leave on a plate.
For extra precaution, you can remove the cord and bulb from within the lamp, in case of moisture builds up.
No, the lamp itself should only ever be slightly warm to the touch. If your lamp is too hot to touch you are most likely using the wrong size bulb & it should be changed. Only use 15 watt bulbs in the electrical cords provided.
Salt lamp bulbs have a life of around 1000 hours, so if left on continuously, they should last approximately 41 days. Unlike the incandescent light bulbs you might find in your ceiling that remains stationary and untouched throughout their life; salt lamps bulbs are prone to more movement and vibrations that can potentially reduce the life of the bulb.
So ideally your salt lamp should remain stationary and be placed somewhere it cannot be knocked easily.
If you are having trouble with your salt lamp bulbs blowing a little too often, here are some things to consider:
It is important to remember that these instructions apply to 100% authentic salt lamps.
