A small, uncomplicated wonder

You may now think that a salt vaporizer is a small marvel and certainly only found in saunas, health centers and spa facilities. However, this is not so, because as versatile as the health-promoting effects are, the way it works is uncomplicated. If you are one of the lucky people who have a sauna in your house, you can easily retrofit your sauna heater with a salt vaporizer. The salt content in the cabin is about seven percent. Salt inhalation is comparable to a relaxing stay at the seaside.

Upgrade your sweat cabin easily!

You can easily upgrade your sauna heater with a set consisting of a stainless steel cylinder and salt stones. The stainless steel cylinder is removable and is placed between the sauna stones on the sauna heater. Then fill one liter of water into the stainless steel cylinder filled with salt stones, and your relaxing “salt bath” can begin. The water evaporates as soon as the sauna heater heats up, creating water vapor. This rises through the openings of the stainless steel cylinder into the vaporizer pot. This vessel contains the salt stones.

Continuous rinsing of the stones enriches the humid air with salt and distributes it throughout the cabin. An extra plus is a handful of dried medicinal herbs such as lavender, chamomile, rosemary, thyme or lemon balm. The selection is wide and you can combine the herbs as you wish. In combination with the high-quality salt, you increase the beneficial effect of your sauna session even more.

Brine nebulizer for the sauna

If you want to make even more demands on your soothing sweat bath, supplement your sweat cabin with an ultrasonic brine nebulizer. This is attached to the wall and distributes the salt throughout the sauna through the openings located there. In contrast to the simple salt vaporizer, this technology is somewhat more sophisticated, so that the salt does not settle again as quickly, but remains in the air longer.


With a salt vaporizer, you can enjoy the health benefits of a sea breeze at home whenever you want. The operation of this innovative device is very simple, because it does not need to be permanently installed. The stainless steel cylinder and the vaporizer device are placed between the sauna stones. As soon as the heater heats up, water vapor rises, which is enriched with the salt from the stones. It has never been so easy to enjoy the healthy salt effect as in a salt cave.
