Why Himalayan Salt?
The salt that is mined in the Himalayan mountain range is said to be of high purity, which is perfect for this type of device where freedom from impurities is an important factor.
It also contains around 80 trace minerals matching our own human chemistry.
Many people go to great lengths to breath salty air, such as visiting the seaside or visiting salt mines (a popular pursuit for breathing allergy and asthma sufferers in certain European countries).
Now you can get all the benefits of these costly visits in the comfort of your own home with the convenience of a handy, portable inhaling device.
Himalayan Salt Lamp
Another alternative for improved respiratory health in the home is to place a genuine Himalayan salt lamp in the room you occupy most.
Salt lamps create a healthy atmosphere by warming up to absorb moisture that neutralizes the air around it and emitting microparticles of salt into the air.
Often preferred to manually needing to breath in salty air through an inhaler or salt pipe, salt lamps are passive, creating a salty air environment inside your home.
Being constructed of Himalaya salt, these lamps offer substantial health benefits to users. Click the image above-right to find out more about this popular model of salt lamp.
Salt Inhalers Compared
When going head to head with our featured product from Salitair, the Himalayas model stands up quite well. It employs a similar design and construct model and uses high quality sodium chloride (salt) derived from mines in the Himalayan Mountains in its refills.
Here is an overview of our comparison:
- Both models are refillable with refills recommended after 6 months of use
- Unfortunately, there is no facility to ship the Himalayas salt lamp directly to the UK, which I suspect would greatly increase this price if it were even available to UK customers
- The Salitair is made and sold in the UK for less, making it the more economical choice for UK shoppers
While the reviewed product is on par with the Salitair in terms of build quality, the ability to refill and the quality of the salt used, the cost rises steeply if you need it shipped outside the US. I would therefore recommend the Salitair in preference to this product if you are in the UK.
