Salt Inhaler FAQs
How much salt should I add to my inhaler? Your inhaler will come with a single bag of Himalayan Pink Salt. Add the entire contents of the bag to your inhaler
How often does the salt need to be replaced?The salt never needs to be replaced. Himalayan Pink Salt naturally replenishes and clarifies itself in order to stay clean. The essential oils may need to be refreshed as their aroma begins to fade. Feel free to keep adding oils to the salt in combination, or one at a time.
Which essential oils should be added to the salt inhaler? We love adding Lungevity and Immune Illumeto the inhaler. Frankincense, Black Spruce, Immune Illume, Peppermint, Rosemary, and all of the fir oils are great choices for the inhaler because they support the immune and respiratory systems. Other elegant choices include: ylang, rose otto, cape chamomile, Roman chamomile, neroli, bergamot, lemon, lavender and marjoram.
How much oil should be added to the inhaler? Start with a minimum of five drops and keep testing to see what strength you prefer. We've found that at least 10 drops of oil work best, yet it truly is a matter of personal preference.
How do I add essential oils to the inhaler? At the bottom of the inhaler, you'll see a small opening (it looks similar to the opening on the bottom of a piggy bank). The oils can be added to this opening.
How do you use the salt inhaler? Hold the inhaler's mouthpiece up to your mouth. Inhale deeply through the mouth and exhale through the nose. You can also bring the inhaler up to each nostril and perform alternate nostril breathing. Cover one nostril with your finger while inhaling deeply through the other nostril; switch and repeat, always exhaling through the nose. Since you will be placing the inhaler directly on the nose and mouth, it's important that every person in your family has their own salt inhaler.
How long should I use the inhaler? The most beneficial amount of time to use the inhaler is for a period of 5 to 10 minutes straight, where every one to two breaths are filtered through the inhaler. You can use the inhaler every day – think of it like a meditation or watch a fun film.
Can I use the inhaler on my mouth and nose? Yes, but since you'll be placing the inhaler directly on the nose and mouth, it's important that every person in your family has their own salt inhaler.
Why is this better/different than a Neti pot? Neti pots take more effort to prepare, can be messy, may be irritating to some people and really just focus on the nose and upper sinus area. Salt inhalers are mess-free, easy to use, quick to set-up, and great for travel. We recommend bringing the salt inhaler for easy use
