Whether you've just purchased one of our Himalayan Salt Inhalers or are interested in how they work, these useful instructions should help guide you.
Directions for use
Breathe normally through inhaler mouthpiece and exhale through the nose. DO NOT breathe into the inhaler mouthpiece. When cleansing process starts you may experience coughing, sneezing and phlegm mucus expectoration. You may also taste salt in your mouth and throat, but these coditions will disappear with regular use.
The Himalayan Salt Inhaler will help flush impurities from your nasal cavities and sinuses and, unlike salt water neti pots and nasal injectors, can also cleanse the lungs. The micrograms of salt air can penetrate and clean the entire respiratory system, and the amount of salt is so small it does not affect blood pressure or cause problems with thyroid conditions sensitive to Iodine. Recommended usage is 15-25 minutes per day, but as the individual gets accustomed to the cleansing effects, that may be increased.
Care & Precautions
- Each Salt Inhaler should be used by only one individual. Do not share Inhaler.
- Do not use Inhaler if chipped, cracked or broken in any area.
- If salt becomes moist or wet, do not use Inhaler. (see salt replacement instructions).
- Always store Inhaler in a dry place when not in use.
- If experiencing drip lips while using Inhaler, apply lip balm or Vaseline before use.
- Wipe Inhaler tip with a damp cloth after each use.
- While the Himalayan Salt Inhaler is completely safe for small children, we do not recommend unsupervised use for those under 8 years of age.
Although the salt will last 3-5 years with daily use, if the salt becomes wet or moist it must be replaced before using the Inhaler. Use ONLY the original Himalayan Salt from Original Salt Lamps, DO NOT use regular table salt, sea salt or Epsom salts.
To replace salt, remove silicone plug from bottom of Inhaler and allow salt to empty through opening. Shaking or flushing inhaler with water may be necessary to remove all salt. Once dry, replace salt.
