The First Natural Handmade Smelling Salts

Native Salts are composed of simple ingredients to provide the natural, refreshing, & alert sensation. From athletes to software developers, Native salts are a refreshing way to stay alert without caffeine. Smelling Salts have been around for hundreds of years, and we are bringing them back in their original re-usable form. We take pride that our smelling salts are natural, smell good and still keep you alert!

Ammonium in small amounts is not dangerous; it's in everything from food, cleaning supplies, and even in your body. There have been no reports of adverse health problems related to the use of smelling salts.

WAIT A MINUTE, I THOUGHT AMMONIUM WAS BAD FOR YOU? 

You're right, ammonium in its pure form is not good for you. Smelling salts, like Native Salts, contain a heavily diluted form of ammonium, which gives off an ammonia gas. Think of it like this, inhaling pure ammonia is like doing a belly flop off of an Olympic high dive. It's going to hurt, a lot. Inhaling Native Salts is like doing a cannon ball off the side of the pool. It's going to wake you up and give you a tiny boost of adrenaline. 

WHY SHOULD I USE NATIVE SALTS? 

Smelling salts have historically been used for a variety of reasons but they all stem back to the idea of being more alert. Whether you're trying to wake up and need something to compliment your morning coffee, you need a little extra kick before that 3PM feeling hits, you want to get going before a night out, you need some extra motivation to complete that last set, or you need a bit more focus after a long day on the road; Try Native Salts. Perfect before your next meeting, workout program, or study session. 

WHEN SHOULD I USE NATIVE SALTS? 

Whenever you want! There are no long term adverse health problems associated with the use of smelling salts. Usage can vary from waking up in the morning, before yoga class, a meeting, a big exam, or even while out at a bar with friends. They've also been proven to help during strenuous exercise, aiding in getting that last rep up. 
 
WHO SHOULD USE NATIVE SALTS? 
 
Historically, smelling salts have been used by athletes and bodybuilders to help with the invigorating effects before a show, play or some sort of performance.
 
We believe their use shouldn't stop there. Native Salts are designed for the health-conscious professional who wants to kick start their day and get back to the things that matter. 

HOW ARE NATIVE SALTS MADE? 

Locally handmade in Chicago by combining eucalyptus, peppermint, ammonium, glycerin, and water. Packaged on site with proper precautions. Native Salts are made in the same process as smelling salts in the 1920's. The process of making smelling salts is rather simple, but the key focus is on quality and consistency to provide Native Salts consumers the best smelling salts around. 

HOW SHOULD I STORE NATIVE SALTS?

For maximum longevity, make sure to screw the cap tightly back onto the bottle directly after use. We recommend storing them at room temperature. In very hot environments (over 90 degrees Fahrenheit) the effectiveness of the product may be diminished. It is OK to store Native Salts in your fridge. Our smelling salts can last up to 6 months if used once daily. We recommend using our natural smelling salts at least once a day. 

I'VE SEEN PEOPLE SHAKE THEIR NATIVE SALTS, WHAT GIVES? 

After extended use, we recommend shaking the bottle between uses. This helps to release ammonia vapor from the compounds. It's recommended to let your Native Salts product rest in between uses. The more the cap is opened and closed, the more ammonia vapor escapes. If you notice the effects decreasing, you might either be towards the end of the product, or you just need to give it some time to recharge.

WHEN WHERE SMELLING SALTS INVENTED?
Smelling salts have been used for centuries (since roughly 12th century - roman times) to revive people who have fainted.  The earliest smelling salts were put into small vessels or capsules, just like our local smelling salts. 

In today’s world, anyone can use smelling salts, and they are often used for medical professionals, hospitals and athletes. Most smelling salts have been targeted towards athletes, lifters and people who want to stay alert & excited without relying on caffeine.

Native Salts is looking to break the barrier down that Smelling salts are only for athletes, since smelling salts should be for everyone to use, especially in our caffeine & adrenaline focused society.
