Smelling salts have been in sports for decades. They provide an instant boost of adrenaline and alertness to anyone searching for that extra edge. Our smelling salts come unactivated so they don’t leak during shipping. Once you open the bottle of smelling salts, fill the bottle cap with water and pour into the container of smelling salts. Shake and let sit (preferably for a few hours). Once it has sat and the water has mixed together, open and keep six inches away from your face to start. These smellings salts are VERY powerful. They will hit very hard and continue to get stronger over a day or two.
