    Does anyone have one of these or know anything about them? I got one for Christmas and finally tried it out today. The lighting looked nice but I'm not sure if it really does anything or not. I also noticed after running it for a few hours that there was some salt residue around where I had placed it. I'm not sure if that was from setting it up or not however. I plan to clean the area off, and try using it again tomorrow maybe.

    Do these work? Do they put more than "ions" into the air? I sure don't want salt unintentionally getting into anything.

    It is interesting. I'll give it that.

    They're supposed to have health benefits and probably cleanse negative energy from your home since salt has long since been considered to have a purifying effect. That's about all I know. I've never used one before so I can't say.

    From a scientific perspective, I don't really buy the claims, nor do I think there's any concrete evidence to support them, but if you like how they look, hey, that's great.

    I think they look pretty neat.

    The salt it puts into the atmosphere keeps vampires away. True story.

    I used to buy my mom those.

    I was a bit confused at first since I always thought of it more as a candle.
