So, why is it important to know about the different types of salt? Well, because you want to make sure you are getting the appropriate type of salt for your needs. Certain salts are great for skin health, however not appropriate for halotherapy, or inhalation. A common misconception in halotherapy is that clients are breathing in Himalayan salt during sessions. Many halotherapy locations use Himalayan or other types of salt as a décor, however, it should not be used as an inhalant. Any salt other than pure sodium chloride will contain unknown impurities that could cause irritation of the respiratory tract.
Salted Desert uses 99.99%, pharmaceutical-grade, sodium chloride without additives. It has no other minerals or impurities in it that could cause irritation or unwanted side effects and is the only form of salt used in European research studies, as well as being recommended by the Salt Therapy Association. Because we use pure sodium chloride, we know exactly what our clients are breathing!
