This dry salt inhaler contains Halite salt crystals, formed around 20 million years ago in Hungarian salt caves. When using the salt pipe, the air’s moisture absorbs microscopic particles of salt, allowing it to penetrate the entire respiratory tract. It aims to draw out congestion and irritation. The salt has a thinning effect on mucus, helping clear it naturally and easing respiratory symptoms associated with asthma, allergies, etc. The Easy Saltpipe is plastic, lightweight and unbreakable. It contains 15gm of crystal salt and should last up to 6-12 months, depending on use.
