Nose Slap is Maximum Strength Smelling Salts with Essential Oils.

Smelling salts have been used since Roman times. Nose Slap is a mixture of sodium carbonate, ammonium chloride, and peppermint essential oil.

The stimulant effect of smelling salts is due to the ammonia, which provokes someone’s nasal and lung membranes once they inhale it through the nostrils. The end result is that the person involuntarily inhales and begins to respire quicker, which sends extra oxygen to the brain.

Some essential oils have shown to promote alertness. When combined with smelling salts they create a super charged effect.

Most smelling salts either only last one time or come in bulky containers that can not easily be carried in your pocket. Nose Slap is small, portable and combined with essential oils to create the best product on the market.


It depends on how often the container is opened but a bottle should last 10-15 "slaps."

Open the lid, fill with cap reservoir halfway. Less water creates a stronger hit. Too much water can blunt the smell and may ruin the product.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC"), low levels of ammonia exposure have not been linked to any adverse health effects in humans. At higher levels of exposure, ammonia can irritate the skin, eyes, throat, and lungs, causing coughing and burns. When used correctly and in moderation, Nose Slap should not expose a person to high levels of ammonia. We recommend discontinuing use if any discomfort is felt and consulting a doctor if you have any concerns before using. The FDA has not approved Nose Slap .

When used properly, smelling salts don’t have adverse effects. Some uncommon side effects include: Coughing, Difficulty Breathing, Headache, Vomiting, Diarrhea
