"I have another question for you at this time. I bought a salt lamp a few years back. It really makes dinner more peaceful. It has gotten some black soot on the inside. Is there a way to clean it? Also, should I be doing something to clear the crystal periodically? I just love it and am looking forward to your answers. Namaste!
Thanks for your email.
Salt Lamps can be cleaned. The soot you describe can be cleaned with a damp cloth and some elbow grease. Water will actually slowly dissolve the surface of the salt lamp and make the edges smoother. I do not recommend letting your Salt Lamp stay damp or wet for long periods of time as they can actually "melt".
Salt Lamps however are quite durable. To dry out Salt Lamps that have gotten damp, try baking them in the sun or you can also bake them in an oven (at 250-350 degrees) to dry them out. If you choose to use an oven, remove the cord as the plastic will melt. The wooden base will not burn at this temperature, but it will discolor over time, so be sure to either watch it closely or to remove the wooden base (if present).
It is our feeling that Salt Lamps do not need clearing as they are a constant source of "good" energy for a room. Salt Lamps will be naturally "cleared" when turned on with either a bulb or with a candle.
I hope this is helpful and that you continue to enjoy your work with crystals.
Blessings to you and your Family!
