The word Halo is Greek for salt, hence the designations halogenerator and halotherapy. The halo, or salt, used in a halogenerator should always be pharmaceutical grade salt. You want to make sure the salt is free from any impurities or minerals. You want 100% NaCl (sodium chloride) for use in your halogenerator as this is the only salt that will dissolve 100% in water. If you use other types of salt, including our favorite Himalayan salt, you run the risk that these impurities and minerals can become trapped in your respiratory system and cause complications.
Although HaloGenerators are a very precise device, they are actually very easy to use. You simply pour some pharmaceutical grade salt into your HaloGenerator, turn it on and breathe. The Halogenerator does everything else.
We recommend using a dedicated room or sealed container for you Halo Therapy. The dry salt mist put out by a HaloGenerator is not reserved just for your breathing passages. It disperses over an area of at least 100 square feet. Over time, these microscopic salt particles will cling to each other and form salt deposits. Not only are they unsightly, but they present a cleaning challenge.
