Why you should drop whatever you’re doing right now and get yourself a Selenite Lamp
You’ve probably heard of Himalayan salt lamps and all the purported health benefits they offer. But what if we told you there was another type of wellness-boosting light fixture that you might want to get your hands on quick sticks before Gwyneth starts talking about it and prices quadruple?
Enter the Selenite lamp.
Cleansing White Selenite, Satin Spar, Maria Glass, Desert Rose… whatever you call it, Selenite is an essential weapon in any metaphysical wellness worker’s arsenal.
Like burning white sage or sprinkling salt, Selenite can cleanse your space of ugly vibes left behind after a nasty breakup, a death in the home, or even just bad juju left behind by shitty housemates who refused to help do the dishes.
And these metaphysical master healers are about to be all up in your TikTok feed, doing their thing, healing spirits, lifting moods and looking generally chic AF.
On the most undeniable level, Selenite lamps are made from a naturally clear or opaque form of gypsum crystal. Light passes through it easily, meaning the Selenite lamp
offers up a nice, soft white glow that should balance out some of the REM-screwing blue light we get from our constant screen exposure. Himalayan lamps do that too (though their light is orange, not white), but they’re nowhere near as easy on the eye as a Selenite lamp, which looks more like something out of a modern art museum than a lump of salmon coloured rock.
Once you move past the physical, Selenite is a remarkably peaceful crystal, best known for its soothing effect on the nervous system. A phenomenon that sounds pretty woowoo until you pick one up and hold it close. Legit, feeling the gentle surge of energy while holding a piece of Selenite might be one of the fastest ways to convert a crystal sceptic.
So, aside from their blue light negating effects, Selenite lamps offer a slew of holistic benefits, from clearing negative energy both from our chakras and the surrounding environment, to bringing a general calm to their immediate area, making them ideal for spiritual work or meditation.
Selenite is an extremely high vibrational crystal that acts as an energy purifier. It cleanses away energetic debris and clears the slate for more positive energy to flow in. In lamp form, Selenite’s healing properties are amplified. It is one of the most effective, and most beautiful, ways to purify energy and create a more positive environment.
Regardless of your beliefs, a striking Selenite lamp makes a fabulous addition to any room and, if the current crystal trend keeps up, you can probably expect to see them all over your Instagram feed, if not all over your own home.
