Both of them have fantastic health benefits that people absolutely love and have reported in their own case.

But, it's not just about the health benefits of selenite or Himalayan salt, but it is the natural calming soothing effect that they both offer.

Both of them are perfect as bedside lamps. But, a lot of people love to place their salt lamps in every room at the house, including:

  • the lounge room
  • the TV room
  • the kitchen; and in particular
  • the bedrooms.

Selenite tower lamps, on the other hand, tend to be the perfect bedside lamp.

How do the benefits of selenite and Himalayan stack up against each other?

Himalayan salt lamps have the benefit of giving a breath of fresh air.

A lot of people suggest and feel the Himalayan salt lamps are able to remove the toxins in the air, and absorb them, and provide a lovely clean fresh air in each of the rooms where you have them.

One of the key benefits of salt lamps is said to be the negative ions they emit.

Now the negative ions are very plentiful out in nature.

When you are in or around a waterfall, there is a lot of negative ions there.

If you're around the ocean and the waves crashing, there is a lot of negative ions there.

When you're out in nature, and especially on the beach, there is a lot of negative ions and there is a very good uplifting feeling when you're out and around those areas.

Picture yourself sitting under a waterfall with the water crushing down beside you or around you, and those negative ions, and you're breathing in the fresh clean air.

Or perhaps you would prefer imagining a lovely rainforest walk with a waterfall.

Unfortunately, most of the environments we find ourselves in; whether it be in the office, or just in or around the home, for most of the day, there are very little, if any, negative ions.

So, there is a fairly draining feeling being in those office environments.salt lamps reduce stress

The differences between Himalayan salt lamps and Selenite

The main difference between the two is Himalayan salt lamps will attract moisture and they need to be on in order to remove the moisture from the air.

If you turn the Himalayan salt lamp off, that moisture will pool, and or run down the salt lamp.

With the Himalayan salt lamp, you want to keep them on at least 16 hours a day to keep them dry.

Otherwise, they will absorb moisture. They'll get wet, damp, and leak.

If you have your salt lamp on 24 hours a day, you will never have a problem with a leaking salt lamp.

You'll have no residue, and there will be no issues there.

Our crystal lamps also come on a beautiful onyx crystal base instead of the old style wooden bases.

We have upgraded from the wooden bases, which get very moist and wet and get colour stains on them as a result of the moisture dripping off the lamp.

The onyx crystal bases are beautiful. They look appealing, they look shiny, and they're easy to wipe and clean down if your salt lamp does happen to leak a little bit of moisture.

Click play on the 1min video below to see the difference in quality of the onyx crystal base versus the wooden or marble bases.

When it comes to selenite lamps; you can have them on or you can turn them off. People like to use them as their night light, and they turn them on leading up to bed, and then they turn them off when they go to bed.

The purposes of the two are somewhat different.

People like to have the Himalayan salt lamps on in order to emit the negative ions to cleanse the air and to help them breathe easier.

People suffering from asthma enjoy having the salt lamps on around them.himalayan salt lamps breathing asthma

In fact, there are many salt lamp rooms where you go and sit there, and clear your sinuses and clear your breathing tracks as a result of sitting in a Himalayan salt lamp room.

The selenite lamps are beautiful at night, but you can turn them off.

They're very soothing and relaxing, give mental clarity, and help you cleanse the energy, and provide a lot of positive energy in and around the space where you have them.

So, which is better? The Himalayan salt lamps or the Selenite tower lamps?
