How To Choose The Right Size Of A Salt Lamp

When buying Salt Lamps, invariably a question comes up: “How to choose the right size of a Salt Lamp?”

So here is our recommendation:

The biggest differentiating factor of a salt lamp is its weight. Typically, the heavier the lamp, the bigger it is, and the broader its ionization properties. The bigger the room, the bigger the lamp should be. Let it be known, however, that in addition to size determining the efficiency of ionization, so does the number of lamps. Spreading multiple proper-sized lamps throughout a room will yield the most positive effect, as this will keep the ion flow in the air the most balanced and effective.
