Pink Himalayan Salt Electric Lamps

What is a Salt Lamp?

Our salt lamps are made of natural Himalayan crystal salt mined from underground salt mines in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains The beautiful orange-reddish Himalayan crystal salt is mounted on a wooden base This crystal salt is hundreds of millions of years old and, as a result, has special properties and high mineral content. Heat from the bulb (in our salt lamps)causes the salt to emit negative ions. These negative ions bond with the pollutants in the air (positive ions) and neutralize them Also, the newly bonded ions become heavier and fall to the ground removing them from the air circulation. In addition, these negative ions combat electro-smog caused by electronic devices operating in the home. Symptoms from asthma, allergies, and other illnesses can also subside from the effects of these products. Concisely, these products cleanse the air naturally and are extremely beautiful. Save 20% on select styles.

Introducing Solare Flameless Pillar Candles

Solare 3D Flameless Candles from Pacific Accents are the world's most realistic flameless candles. They are the perfect blend of beauty and technology. Unlike other moving flame flameless candles that utilize a flat simulated flame that is illuminated from the outside or a stationary bulb, the simulated moving flame flame of a Solare 3D virtual flame candle is 3 dimensional and is illuminated from within. The result is a moving flame that can be viewed from any angle giving you unlimited decorating possibilities.

We carry Solare and traditional melted top flameless Pillar Candles.  All of our flameless pillar candles have a built in 4 or 8 hour daily timer.  Once you select the desired time, the candle automatically shuts off and on the next day, comes back on at the same time.  Imagine the possibilities!  Use our flameless candles in locations previously not possible such as inside bookcases, on window sills or in hard to reach areas.  Beautiful, safe and convenient. The realistic flicker technology and real wax are perfect for indoor usage.
Votives, Tealights and Tapers are also available.

Supplemental material by historian Clint Cargile provides further context  for the life and world of Georgia Townsend Yates.  Her prominent family carved their path from New York to Illinois, bringing big ideas about industry and equality with them.   Inheriting her family's wanderlust, Georgia followed her heart to the far side o the world before carving her own path in Maine and then Boise, Idaho.  Her letter share the glory and tedium of an ocean voyage and exemplify her life-long quest In Search of a Fair Wind.
