Salitair Salt Air Inhailer by Squip
Squip Salitair Salt Air Inhailer
Squip Salitair Salt Air Inhaler is an easy-to-use, drug-free device that recreates the benefits of Halotherapy - salt air therapy. Also known as Speleotherapy (speleos=cave), the salty air of deep rock salt mines has been used for centuries to ease symptoms of respiratory discomforts. Salitair was designed to recreate a similar microclimate - giving you access to salt mine therapy whenever you need it!
Clinical Tests prove the effects of Salitair give significant improvements in forced expiratory volume. Mucous becomes thinner, and hence ease expectoration. Night suffocation and coughing is reduced or prevented completely. Easier breathing.
What is Salt Inhalation Therapy?
Also known as “Halotherapy” (halo = salt), salt air inhalation therapy is an easy-to-use drug-free method that eases symptoms of respiratory discomforts. It is also called “Speleotherapy” (speleos = cave), as the salty atmosphere of deep salt caves has been used for centuries to benefit the respiratory system. Today’s salt inhalers were designed to recreate a similar micro climate – providing salt cave therapy without actually having to venture deep into salt caves.
A few minutes of regular daily use can:
- Ease breathing
- Benefit the respiratory system
- Thin mucus and ease expectoration
Do you suffer from:
- Asthma, bronchitis or rhinitis?
- Pollen allergies or other allergies of the respiratory tract?
- Whooping-cough, hay fever, or colds?

Salt is the mineral of life!
Have you ever wondered why people living around areas such as the Mediterranean, and other bodies of water high in salt content tend to have healthy skin, few respiratory issues, and overall well-being? SALT! Without salt, we can’t live! In fact, we are partially made of salt as our bodies naturally produce 0.9% of this life mineral.
Benefits of Salt Air Inhalation
The benefits of salt air inhalation therapy were first documented in Poland in the 19th century and the many benefits are well known in continental Europe where they believe that dry micro particles of salt and minerals can treat respiratory ailments such as asthma, allergies, and many other respiratory ailments. There are numerous “salt caves” throughout Europe such as Wieliczka in Poland, Hallein in Austria or Praid in Romania – and even some in California. A spell in the salt mines, once regarded as punishment for dissidents committing offences against the state, is now a high tech treatment center for those with respiratory ailments. The salt mines in the Ukraine and Romania have been transformed into modern luxury clinical centers providing treatment for over 10,000 people per year. Temperature in the mines is steady all year round at 22°c, residents sleep on beds in alcoves carved out of the salt.
What led to the discovery of salt air therapy?
It is a fact that salt miners rarely suffer from tuberculosis or respiratory diseases and it was this discovery that led to the development of speleotherapy - which means to be located in a room or area with a presence of salt crystal rock and to breathe the ionized air.
“Salt Cave Therapy” in Your Own Home!
How does it work?
Rock salt crystals are placed between the filters inside a refillable inhaler. As you inhale through the mouthpiece, the moisture of the passing air absorbs microscopic salt particles which permeate through your respiratory system. The humidity in the air is sufficient to enrich the air with minute salt particles when the air passes the salt crystals. Hence a micro-climate of the curative salt caves has been created.
Salitair contains the finest pure Himalayan salt crystals rich in minerals and trace elements.
What makes Salitair unique?
Salitair consists of a salt chamber, upper and lower filter, mouthpiece and cap. The mouthpiece, which contains the upper filter, is bayonet-fixed to the salt chamber so that it can be removed for cleaning and refilling. Unlike many other “salt pipes” in the marketplace, Salitair is reusable and does not have to be discarded after a certain period of time.
Salitair has many advantages:
- Lightweight for travel
- Easy to use
- Easy to clean
- Practical and durable
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can use Salitair?
Anyone can use Salitair and enjoy the benefits from salt air inhalation therapy. Young children may also use Salitair provided that they understand the concept of breathing in through the mouth and exhaling through the nose.
Can I still take my current medication?
Squip recommends that you consult your doctor before using the Salitair salt air inhaler if you are currently on any medication.
Will Salitair affect my blood pressure?
No - the amount of sodium that enters the body is very low and will not affect blood pressure. Most of it is expelled through the nose.
Are there any side effects from salt air therapy?
There are no known side effects from salt air therapy.
How do I clean and store Salitair?
It is important not to store Salitair in places of high humidity such as in the bathroom, and it should not come into contact with water. Salitair has been uniquely designed to allow you to periodically replace or refill the salt chamber enabling you to empty and clean the entire unit for maximum hygiene.
Is the salt inside the inhaler similar to table salt?
No – the Salitair product contains only the finest Himalayan salt crystals. It is important not to use salt that has been processed or is too granular in nature.
Why is it important not to exhale back into the salt air inhaler?
Because the air being exhaled back into the Salitair contains more humidity than the air being inhaled – it is important that the crystals are kept dry. Also, by inhaling through the mouth and exhaling through the nose, more salt is deposited into your respiratory system – which is desired.
Can I share the Salitair with other family members?
No – it is important NOT to share the Salitair with other family members for hygienic reasons.
Can I use it more than once a day?
Yes – Salitair can be used several times per day – Squip recommend 15-25 minutes per day.
