Direct from Transylvanian tunnels to open your airways
Halotherapy (breathing salts) is a simple and natural way to open and clear the respiratory system
The Praid Salt Mine is one of the largest in Europe, situated in the Transylvanian area of central Romania it has been the driving force behind the local economy for hundreds of years.
Tunnelled under the Carpathian Mountains to a depth of 2.7km the 24 million year old deposit of salt crystals has been recognised since the 12th century as having uniquely curative powers.
Now also a major tourist attraction and health spa the working mine still provides Europe with its most widely acclaimed medicinal salt.
In many parts of Eastern Europe families use the salts in specially built sauna-like enclosures, called simply ‘salt rooms’, in which the salt is introduced into the air through a salt aerosol generator.
Participants breathe in the salt particles and even perform light exercise routines in order to ensure they breathe the active ingredients in the salt particles deeply into their systems.
Studies have shown that the natural properties in the salts can:
Improve lung efficiency
Clear pollens and pollutants from the lungs and nasal tracts
Reduce symptoms of allergies, asthma and respiratory conditions
Clean the sinuses and nasal cavities
Reduce bronchial inflammation
The portable version: Salt Pipes
A salt pipe is basically a refillable salt inhaler that recreates the microclimate of a therapeutic salt mine in the comfort of your home.
Therapeutic salt mine treatments have been used for thousands of years to ease respiratory conditions but visiting therapeutic salt mines isn’t exactly cheap or convenient for most people and that’s where Salt Pipes come in.
You can benefit from this incredible natural breathing aid using the simplest and most effective delivery system of all, a clay pipe.
Simply fill the pipe with salt and breathe air through it into your lungs.
As air passes over the salt it picks up the natural particles and active ingredients and takes them into your respiratory system where they can do the job of soothing and strengthening your breathing functions.
Less than half an hour, once a day
All you need to do is use the salt pipe every day for between 15 and 25 minutes in order to feel the benefit.
Each pipe carries enough salt to last for around six months of normal use and there are three replacement bags of salt sent with every pipe, further refills are also available through the MHM Shopping pages.
It’s totally natural and completely safe; it won’t increase your body’s salt intake at all and is even suitable for those on a sodium restricted diet.
In fact it is suitable for anyone aged 5 or over.
Does it work?
Here is what some users say about using a salt pipe
I was slightly dubious as to the claims made regarding the health benefits of The Salt pipe, however, I am now a fully converted follower of salt!
I have shared it with my partner, (he more cynical than even I!) and we both have felt the benefits. We were also pleasantly surprised by how quickly the effects have been felt, having only been using it a few weeks.
We have found that our hay fever has practically disappeared, as has my persistent runny nose that I am plagued with most of the year.
My partner’s snoring has been greatly reduced, as has the likelihood of me killing him in his sleep!
I have used cheaper, plastic ones, and although The Saltpipe is heavier, I would say the quality is considerably better, so you definitely get what you pay for.
I will be ordering the salt refills and continuing to use this product and feel confident recommending others to do the same.

Brought for my husband who suffers from congestion of the sinuses . He has used for about 3 weeks now and wishes he had purchased one years ago ! He has found it relieves the pain he gets across the nose and pressure points. Easy to use clears the head

Since using a salt inhaler i only cough occasionally, my wheezing has stopped and i no longer get out of breath, in fact i can run up my stairs now whereas before i had to take it slowly. I find if i take my salt inhaler last thing at night i have a good night’s sleep and i still feel well the next day. I cannot believe the difference it has made to my lifestyle; i would recommend it to anyone who has wheezing, coughing and gets breathless. It is not a complete cure but it does help.
