This Skull-Shaped Himalayan Salt Lamp Is The Perfect Creepy Halloween Accessory

With Halloween roughly two months away, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to decorate your place to celebrate the holiday. Ghosts, black cats, and jack o’ lanterns are great, but if you really want to take things to the next level, you need this Himalayan salt skull lamp ASAP.

  1. Creepiness AND good vibes simultaneously? Sign me up! If you already own a salt lamp or have considered getting one, I highly recommend it. They’re super soothing, calming, and just generally put good vibes into your space (if you believe in that sort of thing). Put that salt in a skull and you’ve just made it kinda creepy but still relaxing. Weird combo but let’s go with it.
  2. You can use it in several ways. Whether you want to use this as a night light (a bit weird, but this is a judgment-free zone), a centerpiece on your coffee table or bookshelf, or a bedside lamp, take your little salt skeleton wherever you want it and it’ll be by your side.
  3. It will purify the air around you. Great for keeping out ghosts, right? Supposedly, salt lamps help to fight electromagnetic radiation by emitting negative ions. I don’t even know what that means or if that’s even a thing, but my inner hippie is a sucker for stuff like this, so you know I bought one. (OK, I own two.)
  4. It just looks really badass. Seriously, how cool will you look with glowing skulls around your house/apartment? Whether you’re throwing a Halloween party or just trying to create a ~vibe~ for when you come in from work and throw yourself on the couch with some Netflix, these things are amazing. Plus, they’re pretty inexpensive as far as home decor goes and, depending on how you’ve decorated your place, you could even keep them out year-round.
