In 2023, one of the questions we often get asked is what the best price for a Himalayan salt lamp is? It is a great question because it brings up the idea of quality versus just shopping around for the lowest price.
Himalayan Salt Lamps are not only beautiful, but they come with a range of health benefits.
One of the toughest choices you will make is the decision between the natural salt lamps or the carved salt lamps.
For the best price for a salt lamp, you are best going for the natural Himalayan salt lamps.
This isn't to say this is the best choice for you and your home. It is just to say you can get a lot more value (or weight) for the same amount of money spent.
All our salt lamps come on an Onyx Crystal base, which we highlight in detail in the video towards the bottom of this page. Be sure to watch it before you purchase any salt lamp.
Here is our range of natural salt lamps available for purchase. Please note that recent regulations in Australia allow up to 5kg salt lamps.
If you are looking for the health benefits with a charismatic visual appeal, then the carved salt lamps will be your preferred choice.
We have 9 carved salt lamps to choose from, all catering to the different personality of the person you are buying for.
Some people prefer to have a shaped salt lamp rather than the natural. Horses for courses really.
If you are putting your salt lamp in a room where you entertain guests or have people over frequently, the carved salt lamps are the way to go.
Clearly, it is important to get the best price for your natural Himalayan salt lamp, but do not compromise on the quality.
Now, you want to make sure that you're buying genuine Himalayan rock salt lamps. Above all else, this is the most important to get all the health benefits associated with salt lamps.
When it comes to pricing a Himalayan salt lamp, there are a few sizes to consider. Below are our sizes for natural salt lamps with their respective prices. View the prices for our carved salt lamps here.
|Weight of salt lamp||Price of salt lamp|
|2-4kg - Click Here||$25|
|4-6kg - Click Here||$35|
Unfortunately, you will not get the best price at a large retail shopping centre. Their markups are just too high.
We noticed some salt lamps on marble bases at a shopping centre in Sydney city.
You can see from their price list in the image below, the 2-3kg is $36.95 yet we sell a natural 2-4kg for just $25. That is a $10 saving, and you will notice at each kg level, they are $10 more.
Not only that but shopping centres only stock the small size salt lamps.
Another thing you need to consider when looking at the best price for a salt lamp is the base it comes on.
The majority of salt lamps come on a wooden base. Wooden bases are by far the cheapest to order in and everyone has one.
Wooden bases are ok if you want to be like everyone else, or you could get the same size salt lamp for the same price but have the upgraded Onyx crystal base.

You'll see in the video above and the image below the shine on the crystal base versus a marble base or a wooden base.
We only stock salt lamps on an Onyx crystal base. Look at how much more beautiful they are in the image on the right compared to a wooden base.
The beauty comes from it being a natural crystal. They are carved for each salt lamp. You can't beat nature.
The other thing with the wooden base is when it sweats (if you have it turned off), the salt runs down the sides. If you do not clean it, it leaves a mark on the wood whereas, with the crystal, you can just wipe it off.
Feel free to view our comprehensive care instructions for salt lamps here. We take the time to let you know in person how easy it is to care for your salt lamps.
Every salt lamp purchased comes with a handy colour print out of how to look after your salt lamp and the benefits.
When you are shopping around for the best price, be sure to take into account what it will look like in a year or two down the track.
Many of our customers ask about their salt lamp candle holder. The reason is many of the cheaper ones only require a candle and don't have the facility to be plugged in.
Now a candle powered salt lamp is not going to work.
The candle needs to be on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, which is not safe or practical for 99% of the owners.
It also needs to have enough heat in it for the rock salt lamp not to sweat. Now, that is a problem because a little candle is not able to do that.
We DO NOT stock any salt lamp candle holders and do not believe in them for health, convenience or any other reason. We do stock a range of other beautiful candle holders.
Another question people ask is it is best to buy locally? If you are looking for the best price for your salt lamp, then local is the best as you will save on postage.
Our warehouse is based in Sydney and we can ship Australia wide. Of course, for those living near Sydney, your postage will likely be cheaper than those further away.
You will notice it when it arrives how much care we take in packing your salt lamps. The other reason we do this is to protect the Onyx crystal base and light bulbs.
We've weighed all salt lamps so when you add one to your shopping cart, it will tell you how much shipping is.
Once you enter your postcode, you will see the shipping rate.
We post all our salt lamps to anywhere in Australia, and all of them come with a unique Onyx crystal base.
In conclusion, when it comes to the best price for a Himalayan salt lamp, you do need to take into account the quality of the base. You also need to make sure that it's a genuine and not a fake Himalayan salt lamp.
Also, if you're able to buy locally, then you save on postage. Otherwise, it can be shipped out.
We look forward to servicing your needs.
