How to have a fire without the heat.

How to have a fire without the heat.

The one bad thing about warm summer nights is that using the fireplace is probably out of the question. But what if you want that inviting, romantic glow? Do you stoke up the logs and crank up the air-conditioning? Of course not; you get a Himalayan Rock Salt Lamp from the Victorian Fireplace Shop and stick one in your hearth for the ‘fiery glow’ you’ve been missing. Beside providing atmosphere, the substance from which they are constructed is claimed to have therapeutic effects. ‘Rock salt lamps have long been recommended for those with respiratory illness or asthma’ as they naturally draw moisture, and a drier indoor environment makes for less airborne respiratory allergens and irritants. A 10 to 14 pound rock lamp with cost you about 59 bucks plus 9 bucks shipping.
