This Himalayan Crystal Salt Tea Light is made entirely from full-spectrum crystal salt, shaped to hold a standard tea light candle (available at most stores), with an average height of 3.75" and base width of 3.5".
The tea light candle causes the crystal salt to glow with a beautiful, sensuous orange / red / yellow glow caused by the crystalline semi-transparency of the salt crystals.
Each Himalayan Crystal Salt Tea Light is unique, so the actual weight varies from light to light. They are beautifully hand-shaped from real salt crystals formed millions of years ago when the Earth was pristine. As a result, they are completely free from modern-day pollutants such as pesticides, DDT or PCBs.
YES, these tea lights are edible! You can literally scrape off the
salt from the lamp and use it on your food. These lamps are not treated or
processed in any way other than being physically shaped into a lamp. If you LICK your tea light, it will taste like salt.
This salt contains 82+ trace elements, including magnesium,
zinc, selenium and more. It is a "full-spectrum" sea salt that's slightly
pinkish in color. The taste is widely considered to have more depth and
richness compared to processed white table salt.
Every salt tea light is
Himalayan salt is a collection of crystals. The crystal
shape reminds many people of quartz crystals or geodes. There is a geometry in
the crystals that is widely recognized to be "sacred" in the healing
arts. Tea lights are crystals you can eat!
When lit from the inside with a candle, Himalayan Crystal Salt tea lights project an
amazing pattern of light and color.
We cannot guarantee exactly what each tea light will look
like, as each one is unique in texture and composition. The picture you see
here is taken from the same tea lights we are offering, so yours will look
similar to this. All Himalayan salt tea lights will have visible
"fractures" which are lines between different concentrations of
mineral elements inside the light. They may also contain small
"specks" of minerals, usually red or pink in color. The texture of
the salt tea light is much like a collection of tiny crystals, which is exactly what
salt really is.
A smart preparedness
Himalayan salt tea lights are prized as valuable preparedness
items because human beings cannot live without salt. Although modern-day food
is pre-salted, in a collapse or survival scenario, salt suddenly becomes very
difficult to get (and goes way UP in value).
In a survival scenario, you'll need salt for storing foods,
pickling vegetables, curing meats, cooking soups, and to help eliminate
nutritional deficiencies. Because Himalayan salt contains 82+ trace elements,
it provides the body with nutritional raw materials that regular white salt
If you wish to
chip off some salt from a salt lamp or tea light, here's a
tip: Wrap the salt tea light in a towel, then (carefully) hammer away at the
towel. This will
produce salt grains and small pieces that can be used in cooking. It is a
good idea to wear eye protection when hammering, by the way.
Infinite shelf life
These salt tea lights
have already been "on the shelf"
so to speak for millions of years. As long as you keep them dry, they
have a shelf life far beyond a human lifespan. Remember: They have been
buried under billions of tons of
rock and dirt for millions of years. They will do just fine sitting on
shelf. This makes them a smart way to store a valuable survival item
that also doubles as a beautiful decoration piece for your home or

effectively a huge discount, as salt lamps are heavy and expensive to
ship. Shipping to Hawaii and Alaska is charged at the actual rate
provided to us by the carriers. We do not recommend purchasing salt
lamps for shipment outside the United States, as shipping costs can
often exceed the entire purchase price of the lamp.
