Is Your Himalayan Salt Lamp Legit?

So Well Made Salt Lamps

By now you’ve probably heard about Himalayan salt lamps and the many health benefits like air purification, EMF reduction, and allergy relief. But you might not know that not all of them are created equal. Even I was fooled!

I went to Whole Foods and bought one a while ago and was amazed at how bright and beautiful it was in my house. But little did I know that it wasn’t legit and I wasn’t getting the full benefits of an authentic salt lamp 🤔

The telltale sign for me was how bright the lamp was. That might sound like a good thing, but actually, an authentic salt lamp should be fairly dim. According to Dr. Josh Axe:

Due to its high content of numerous minerals, a Himalayan salt lamp gives off light in an irregular and muffled manner. A true salt lamp does not give off enough light to completely illuminate a room.

Who would have thought! 😔 There are some other signs to look for such as country of origin (it should be Pakistan!), a poor return policy, it’s very moisture-resistant, super durable, or if you simply aren’t feeling any benefits.

So after hearing my friend Marissa rave about her salt lamp from the company So Well Made, I was intrigued and bought one myself! I was especially excited to see their many size and color options.

Why I Like So Well Made Salt Lamps

  • Many size, shape, and color options for lamps
  • Each lamp is unique–not a cookie cutter design or perfect shape
  • The lamps are AUTHENTIC: they are fair-trade and handmade from ancient salt crystal by skilled artisans from Pakistan
  • They carry a bunch of other products besides lamps like skincare, bath soaks, candle holders, etc.
  • So Well uses reusable, recyclable, and eco-friendly packaging
  • Great customer service: The first time I plugged mine in, I heard a loud pop noise and the light wouldn’t turn on. Customer service assured me that this doesn’t happen often and they sent me a new cord for free, and it arrived within 2 days (I think it had something to do with the electrical wiring in my house).

Overall I highly recommend this brand and the beautiful salt lamps! Not only do they offer many health benefits, but the ambiance alone is worth it.

  1. Hi, I was looking to purchase another salt lamp from So Well Made. But, I see now they are no longer here. Do you know of another company with true salt lamps? Thank you!
