The Salt Crystal I received as a Christmas present "sweats" an odorless but somewhat oily substance. I had in on my nightstand but had to remove it because of the liquid accumulated beneath the lamp. I was concerned that it would damage the wood and it was also not very appealing to have a wet surface on my nightstand. Is this a normal occurance for these salt crystals? What can I do to stop this?

==========================================================

Carmen,

Thanks for your email. I am sorry for the difficulty you are having with your salt lamp. This issue can occur with Salt Lamps when they are placed in a humid environment or if they get wet. Because the Salt Lamp is carved from genuine salt, it can "melt" when it encounters water or if it placed in a location with high humidity. Unfortunately, the salt lamp is not defective, but it should be placed in a location with less humidity to avoid this condition.

To restore your salt lamp to its original condition, you can gently scrub the surface of the salt lamp with a brush to remove some of the white chalky residue. Then, to dry out your salt lamp before placing it in a new location, you can remove the cord and place the salt lamp in your oven (without the cord) at a very low temperature (+/-200 degrees) for a short time. The salt lamp with dry out quickly and thoroughly using this method, but please check your lamp frequently to ensure that it does not stay in too long.

I hope this helps and that you end up enjoying your salt lamp in a different location. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Namaste'

Shawn

  High quality Black Salt. Black salt is also known as kala namak. It is a special type of Indian mineral salt with a distinctive / sulfurous flavor. It is not interchangeable with sea salt or table salt because of it's distinct flavor. It is rich in iron.
