Two 25-Watt bulbs are horizontally mounted below the salt dome with a UL-approved dimmer cord to control the surface heat level of the salt. Its uses are varied and can be customized to individual therapeutic and aesthetic practices such as foot detox, reflexology, manicures, pedicures, sports therapy, arthritic hand conditions, etc. It looks more like a piece of art than a functional apparatus for healing and beauty treatments

The Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ is unlike any detoxification product to hit the market. Unlike other, well-known detoxification processes that rely on colored charts to assure the consumer of their effectiveness, the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ from Nature’s Artifacts is based on firm scientific information about detoxification processes and how to maintain optimum health through natural cleansing.
After using the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™, the consumer has personal evidence of the effect on the body. The work of the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ is based on the concept of Reflexology, a natural healing art based on the principle that zones on the feet correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Some users of the Detoxer report actually tasting salt in their mouth. This may show that the cleansing process is moving through the body’s tissues. Thus the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ (patent pending) offers the consumer a unique, safe and effective cleansing process that, when directions are followed, can be used repeatedly to achieve many of the health benefits associated with cleansing regimens.
How Does it Work?
Himalayan Pink Salt is considered to be one of the finest salts with regards to unsurpassed purity, dynamic crystal structure, and mineral content. Long ago it was called the “King of Salts” by inhabitants of the Himalayan mountain range where it is found. It was reformed eons ago when a vast sea was compressed by incredible geologic forces. This amazing mineral contains 84 elements essential to the human body and is the preferred salt for many high class spas, salons, natural medicine, and Ayurvedic practices such as reflexology, acupuncture, and acupressure.
It can be used in a variety of treatments such as salt scrubs and baths, skin exfoliation and detoxification. Sophisticated manicure and pedicure treatments and simple foot fatigue all benefit from this amazing device. The Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ uses this unique mineral to form a platform that can be used as a primary or secondary focal point for foot detoxification, localized ski treatments, manicures, pedicures, etc. When the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ is warmed, the salt will release negative ions which are anti-microbial, air purifying, and promote a sense of well being. This can be coupled with natural exfoliatiing and detoxifying properties of salt which can enhance the benefits even more when used in combination with essential oils and lotions, mud baths and natural fruit blends
Himalayan salt works in a number of ways:
- The warmth of the stone causes the feet to sweat, allowing the salt to purify and cleanse. Toxins are pulled out and minerals pulled in, thus decreasing unhealthy acidity. This also helps ease tiredness, aching, and symptoms of stress caused by over-exertion.
- It is the source of many vital nutrients. Himalayan salt may contain as many as 84 natural minerals vital to health that can be absorbed through the skin.
- Also, the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ softens and gently exfoliates the skin as it binds with the salt through moisture on the hands and feet.
- When the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ is warmed, the salt helps release negative ions which are anti-microbial, air purifying, and skin purifying. This promotes a sense of well being. It also purifies the air by binding with positive ions to help settle dust and allergens.
- Like gem-quality stones, the powerful crystalline structure works by opening up energy pathways, dispelling negative energy, improving both concentration and circulation, harmonizing thought patterns while the amplifying life force. This helps to maintain health and well-being.
- The Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ is the perfect reminder of healing qualities we experience at the ocean. It assists in the realignment of the bodys subtle magnetic energy field to help facilitate healthier cellular development and more cohesive thinking. Some say there is no thought or action without the presence of salt in the body.
- The Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ helps to re-attune the body to the Schumann resonance, sometimes called the heart beat of Mother Earth. This helps ease nervousness, insomnia, and lack of concentration while helping to clear cancer causing free radicals from the body.
- It is a source of natural color therapy. The orange tones calm and help you feel more secure, the yellows brighten your mind, the reds strengthen, the pink inspires loving feelings, the white cleanses and the brown tones balance and ground you.
How is it to be used?
The Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ can be used for a variety of things from simple foot fatigue to detoxification. Before starting any treatment, we recommend the unit be turned to the maximum level for 10-20 minutes. Prior to use the temperature should be gauged by touch. If at this point it is deemed suitable to clients or individuals, turn the control switch on the dimmer switch to the mid-point. This is done because salt is a temperature sink which means it will hold heat(or cold) for a long period of time. After this period, you can fine tune adjustments up or down if necessary. Disposable house booties or socks may be used if desired. Now you are ready to use the Himalayan Salt Detoxer™ for sore feet, as a platform for manicures or pedicures, to soothe arthritic hands or as relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, etc
Warm Salt Detoxer™ to the desired temperature. Apply a high quality lotion or oil such as Jojoba or Coconut to either feet or hands and rest on the Detoxer™ for 15-30 minutes. If both feet will not fit comfortably on the Detoxer™, individual treatment for each foot maybe necessary. Covering hands or feet with a slightly damp thin cloth or towel will enhance the therapeutic aspects of these treatments. Essential Oils such as rosemary, lavender, and chamomile are great for both feet and hands. Lotions or creams that contain these ingredients or a few drops of pure essential oil may be added to enhance the effect. For skin or foot fungus such as Althlete’s Foot, we recommend Tea Tree oil. Thyme and Lemon Essential oils can be very powerful and only a few drops are usually necessary. Be careful not to get essential oils into your eyes and wipe hands after each use. Preliminary skin patch tests are advised to determine sensitivity to any essential oil.
