Himalayan Crystal Salt Tea Light STAR shape
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 2" and width of 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 unique
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 item
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 cannot.
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 your 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 office!
