To further boost their immune system and prevent the sniffles (or worse), then it’s time for salt therapy of course!
Salt therapy is great for kids. Salt is a natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. When inhaled deep into the respiratory system, the salt particles can help clear the airways and relieve congestion. When landing on the skin, the salt can help relieve dry, itchy and inflamed skin and accelerate skin rejuvenation. It can also help fend off bacteria and other viruses to keep your kids bug free.
So you take care of their lunch box and we will take care of keeping cold and flu bugs at bay. Their immune systems will be fighting fit!
