Himalayan rock salt lamps are very popular trendy for a number of reasons. Some just like the way they look and many use them for their amazing health benefits.
However, if you have one in your home, you may want to check on the brand. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, thousands of Himalayan rock salt lamps are being recalled — specifically, three different lamps from Lumière, sold between July and November 2016 at Michaels, as well as through Amazon.
The arts and crafts store Michaels recalled about 80,000 pink Himalayan salt lamps after it was discovered they could shock or catch fire.
The Lumiere Basket of Rocks, Carnival of Lights and Rock of Gibraltar lamps have dimmer switches and/or outlet plugs which could overheat and ignite.
All the lamps are pink, and were sold between July and November 2016.
Recall affects approx 80,000 lamps
“Working together with the CPSC, we have recalled the line of Lumière Himalayan Salt Lamps sold between July 2016 and November 2016,” a Michaels spokesperson tells Bustle in a statement. “The safety and well-being of our customers is our top priority and we have taken immediate steps to remove this product from our stores, inventories, and supply chain. We apologize to anyone who have been affected by this situation and are providing full refunds..com”
What do if you have one
So what do you do if you have one?
First, make sure your lamp is one of the three being recalled by the CPSC by checking the SKU and UPC numbers.
The first is the Rock of Gibraltar Lamp (SKU 495144, UPC 00886946056253)
Next is the Carnival of Lights (SKU 495433, UPC 00886946058325),
And third is the Basket of Rocks (SKU 495146, UPC 00886946056277).
You can find these numbers on the product and the box they came in.
If you own one of these lamps- first, unplug the item immediately, then simply go to Michael’s with your lamp to receive a full refund.
Health benefits of Himalayan salt lamps
Here are 10 reasons why you should use Himalayan salt lamps.
1. Much Better Sleep
Positively charged ions in the air tend to rob you of any chance of a good nights sleep, and the reason this happens is that the particles can reduce blood and oxygen supply to the brain, which then results in us having irregular sleep patterns. Believe it or not, Himalayan pink salt lamps are natural negative ion generators, which can help to reverse the problem of being over exposed to positive ions.
So when you hear the term negative ion you just need to remember that we are electrical beings and having too much of a positive charge can cause a lot of problems in our body such an inflammation. This is why people use grounding mats, walk around barefooted outside and keep himalayan salt lamps around. They all help to ground out the positive charge and bring your body into a balanced state.
2. Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder (Depression)
The natural soft light that is given off by the Himalayan salt lamps helps to generate negative ions that help to improve energy levels and mood. To our bodies, it feels close enough to the warming glow of the sun, that they have even been used to help relieve the symptoms that come with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Feeling depressed during the winter time is never fun so keep one of these lamps nearby to help curb the effects.
3. Improves your Mood & Concentration
If you are looking to unwind at the end of the day then Himalayan salt lamps can be an incredible way to help you to naturally unwind and relax at the end of the day. On the other side, these lamps have been known to be great for helping to improve concentration. This is another awesome effect of the negative ions. They providing a boost of serotonin (the neurotransmitter that actually makes us feel happy) and will improve oxygen and blood supply to your organs and brain.

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
