Soothing pink light, that is.
We bought this Himalayan salt lamp, used but supposedly working, a few weeks ago. Alas, when we got it home, nothing. No mystical Pakistani ions, no allergy relief, no warm light. It did serve its actual purpose as a bookend, but we wanted more.
I finally got around to changing the bulb (a project made more difficult by an encrustation of salt…). Hey presto!
So far, we have to concur with this nice article about the actual value of having a salt lamp… it hasn’t cured any ailments yet but it’s a nice light in the early morning or late evening… and it totally keeps the books from falling over.
