Help Cherise! My Himalayan Salt Lamp is melting! What’s wrong with it and what do I do?



Firstly, stop panicking. It’s quite normal.   

Salt lamps absorb moisture from the air then evaporate clean moisture back into the air basically filtering it.

I always keep mine turned on and I have a plate under it. You have moisture in the air and your lamp is sucking up the moisture. Leave it on all the time. It will leak when it isn't active. 

You can also put a washcloth underneath your salt lamp so that it could absorb the moisture and stop the salt lamp from destroying the furniture.

When the lamp is off make sure you cover it with a cloth. It will prevent this condensation. 

If it is possible, keep the lamp on 24/7. If it’s near a window or door it will draw the moisture to it. The light keeps it warm so the salt won’t melt.

I do urge you to purchase your lamps from reputable sources. If not, then be sure to buy a new power cord. Some of the lamps being sold now are super cheap and can catch on fire.

Hope this helps Chelsea.
