Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler

Salt therapies, which include gargling with salt water, neti pots and salt caves (speleotherapy), have been used for thousands of years in both traditional and modern medical practices.

Speleotherapy, also known as cave therapy, was developed in the mid-1800s after Polish salt miners were found to have a lower incidence of pulmonary disease.

Halotherapy, a more recent development of the concept, is the use of a salt room made entirely of Himalayan Crystal Salt to recreate the microclimate of the caves, for therapeutic use.

More recently a New England Journal of Medicine study in 2006 found that inhaling salt-infused vapor improved breathing for 24 patients with cystic fibrosis.

And in another small study, in the European Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, subjects with asthma reported breathing easier after several weeks of regular halotherapy (salt) treatments.

In today’s world, it’s hard to imagine that something as simple and basic as salt could have major health benefits, but it does and works in two very simple but different and important ways:

1. Thins and reduces mucus

Interestingly when you inhale salt through an inhaler for the lungs or neti pot for the sinuses, it lines your mucus membranes with salt which thins out the mucus that is there and reduces the buildup of excess mucus. This helps reduce the congestion in your lungs or blocked sinuses making it easier to breath.*

2. Creates a healthy environment

The very things that compromise our respiratory health (lungs and sinuses) – bacteria, fungus, viruses and molds find it hard to survive in a salt environment. This is why we used to salt our food!

So whether you have a serious condition that impacts your lung health, bronchial tract or your ability to breath.*

Or you have a cold or other infection, are an ex or current smoker, have allergies, live in a moldy apartment or house, or regularly flying on a plane with recycled air.*

Creating a salt environment is a safe, natural way to support a healthy bronchial tract by reducing your vulnerability to bacteria, fungus, viruses and molds as well as reducing the congestion in your lungs by thinning and reducing the amount of mucus.

The popularity of this therapy has resulted in new salt spas with salt caves popping up everywhere from Florida to Minnesota, LA and New York with 10-20, one-hour sessions costing between a few hundred and a few thousand dollars.

But, what if there are no caves or spas close by?

The Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler brings the cave to you.

This portable alternative to salt caves or rooms is a dry, ceramic inhaler, with a salt chamber inside. As you breathe in through your mouth, the air moves gently across the salt. Microscopic salt particles are absorbed through the moisture in the air, which flows into your respiratory system, delivering beneficial effects. Simply inhale through the mouth and exhale through the nose for 10-20 minutes a day. For more information on how the inhaler works check out our Frequently Asked Questions and Answers by clicking here.

What makes the Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler different to other inhalers:

Handcrafted in the USA with a stringent Quality Control Process to ensure safety – nearly all other inhalers are mass produced in China or Pakistan.

We use a BPA free rubber stopper and lead free decals

Our inhaler comes pre-filled with Coarse Granulated Original Himalayan Crystal Salt, that lasts for 18 - 24 months. Click here to learn about the differences between Original Himalayan Crystal Salt and other Himalayan or pink salts.

Refillable – the rubber stopped under the inhaler means you can have the same inhaler for life and simply refill every 18 - 24 months.

The salt cave that travels with you!

Our inhaler is small enough to fit in a hand bag or carry on luggage so you can bring the healing properties of Original Himalayan Crystal Salt with you wherever you go.

Directions for use: As you breathe in through your mouth, the air moves gently across the salt. Microscopic salt particles are absorbed through the moisture in the air, which flows into your respiratory system, delivering beneficial effects.

Use daily for 10-20 minutes when you wake and before bed.

Original Himalayan Crystal Salt Neti Pot

Neti pots, from Ayurvedic medicine, have become popular among natural health practitioners and consumers over the past 5 years.

These ceramic pots are designed to flush out your nasal passages and are often go-to products for congestion and sinus infection, whether fungal, viral or bacterial.

Neti pots specifically use a saline (salt) solution.

This is because a saline solution will help:


1. Thin and reduce mucus build-up*
2. Act as an anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal*

In addition, a neti pot saline solution may help improve cilial function.*

Cilia are the hair-like structures that line your lungs, throat and nose. They must work together to move allergens, pathogens, excess mucus and fluid out.

Neti Pot Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Which type of Himalayan Crystal Salt do I use with the Neti Pot?
You may use either the Fine Granulated Himalayan Crystal Salt or the Sole made with your Crystal Salt Stones with your neti pot.
To use the Fine Granulated Salt, dissolve ½ teaspoon of the salt in 8 ounces of warm water.
To use the Sole, combine 1 ½ teaspoons of the Sole with 8 ounces of warm water.

How do I use the Neti Pot?
Bend over the sink and turn your head to one side. Keeping the pot level, place the spout into the top nostril until it has a snug fit. Breathe through your mouth and slowly tip your head downward allowing the warm water to travel through your sinuses and out the other nostril. Use half the water and repeat on the other side. If you experience an uncomfortable sensation, adjust the level of salt. Sometimes too little salt can be as uncomfortable as too much salt.

IMPORTANT: Please, never use tap water in your neti pot! Always use sterile boiled water or purified bottled water.
