You can see how pretty these Candle Holders are in the below video
The very first experience I have had with this pretty pink colored salt was with a candle holder. I received one candle holder as a Christmas gift several years ago.
Since then I have become a huge fan of Himalayan salt products. I have quite a few candle holders, lamps, cooking boards, and cooking salt in the house. They are pretty to look at and healthy to consume. Himalayan pink salt indeed added a pleasure to my everyday life. 🙂
They are very affordable. It is a beautiful decoration added to your home environment. It also makes a great gift for your friends, family, and loved ones. I gave it to many friends as a gift for birthdays, engagements, anniversaries, Christmas or just to cheer them up or make them smile.

What Type of Candles Do I Use?
Himalayan Salt Candle Holders all take tealight candles.
Just place a tea candle in the holder and light it. The hole could be quite deep for a bigger one. The largest one I have is 5-inches tall with a 4-inch deep hole.
I recommend that you use a fireplace lighter with a long neck just like I did in the video above. Once lit, it starts radiating the soothing rosy light and one candle normally lasts 4-5 hours in these salt candle holders.
One thing to note. Not all candle holders are created equally. Sometimes you may find your tea candle may be a little too large to fit your particular holder. If you find the hole be a bit too tight for your tea candles, there is a simple solution. No need to scrape or drill the hole! Just fill the hole with water and it will get wider. It is salt after all. 🙂

These candle holders are made of salt, so please do not wash them. They are going to dissolve away!
If it gets dirty, or dark with soot you simply wipe the area gently with a damp cloth.
A Himalayan crystal salt candle holder makes for great company during your bath time after a long day. But be careful not to leave it behind in the humid bathroom as the water condensation will slowly begin to dissolve the salt candle holder. I’ve found it to be ok for the length of a normal bath time.
I once took a super long bath after a super long day and had a salt candle holder on the counter. It was truly rejuvenating to be relaxing in a warm bath as looking at the gentle amber glow.
However, I totally forgot to remove it from our tiny bathroom filled with steam. Next morning, I found the salt candle holder had started dissolving onto the counter! I could tell as some salt particles were forming around the base of the candle holder.
After you’ve lit a candle in the crystal salt candle holder, leave it for a few minutes and touch it. You can feel that the candle holder is nicely heated.
It never gets too hot to touch.
It is believed that Himalayan crystal salt when it’s heated, emits negative ions into the air. In this modern era, we are all exposed to excessive positive ions from electronic devices every single day. They are bombarding our body with harmful electronic vibrations and weakening our physical strength.
Heated Himalayan salt binds those excessive positive ions with their negative ions and helps to cleanse the indoor air. It neutralizes electro-pollution in your air and reduces allergens and irritants.
There is no scientific evidence on how Himalayan pink salt indeed works as an air purifier. However, from experience, I know heated candle holders do create positive changes in our air.
I always keep 6-8 Himalayan salt candle holders in my study as I spend hours and hours working in front of a computer in the room. I have a very sensitive respiratory system and tend to sneeze with the slightest change of temperature or dust in the air.
But when I light candles in the Himalayan salt candle holders, I sneeze a lot less or it completely stops.
And when I leave the room to go to the kitchen or whatever and come back, as I open the door I can totally SMELL the cleanness of the air in the study. It is clearly different from other rooms in the house.
You know the smell of the pure air, like when you are walking in the woods or standing by a huge waterfall. It is that kind of smell.
So without any scientific proof behind it, I know they do purify the air.
It may not be so evident with just one candle holder, but try lighting 3 to 5 in a room, close the door and after some time has passed re-enter. You should be able to clearly tell that the air is purified. Too bad that I cannot attach the smell of the clean air to this blog!
