How do I get started using the blanket? 

We recommend reading the SMOMAR instructions manual before getting into your blanket. Here’s some tips below for first time users 

  • Ensure you have water nearby - you’ll begin to sweat in the blanket as your body temperature increases, be sure to keep hydrated with some cold water nearby.
  • Use a towel - you can line the blanket with a towel if you wish, this will ensure your sweat is absorbed into the towel instead of the blanket, or use it post-sauna to dry yourself. 
  • Keep yourself entertained, or enjoy 30 minutes of relaxation - use your headphones to listen to calming music, or fully embrace the wellness qualities of your blanket in silence, the choice is yours.

Technical Information

How long will my blanket last? 

The blanket is designed to last up to 17 years, ensuring you have many years worth of wellness sessions with your blanket. 

What is the difference between the Infrared Sauna and the Infrared Sauna Blankets besides their form factor?

The difference is simply that our blankets offer far infrared rays whereas the sauna offers a full spectrum. On top of that, our technology is in portable format.

What settings does the blanket offer and what do i use to control them?

You can adjust the temperature and timing on the digital controller.


  • Temperature can go from 25-80 C°. 
  • Timing can go up to 60mn


Please remember, it is very important to listen to your body while in the blanket. We recommend starting between 45-55 C° and working up from there.

How long does the blanket take to heat up?

Only 10 minutes, remember to use your blanket on-top of a heat proof surface.

Since my face is exposed, will I still sweat as much as I do in a normal sauna?

You will get a good sweat in, and you will still sweat from your face since your body’s core temperature will be heated as well. What we do while in the blanket is put on a healthy face mask, since your pores will be open it is great for your skin to soak that up.

I’ll sweat in the blanket.. So how do I clean it?

Cleaning the blanket is very easy. We recommend using an anti bacterial wipe after every use. A homemade solution of vinegar with tea tree, lavender and/or thyme essential oil works great too. Wipe down the blanket and let it dry before folding it away.

Your blanket, controller, power supply cord, and connecting cords are all included in the box.

Far infrared rays may help deliver a deep detoxifying sweat and allow your body to push out those heavy metals and increase your heart rate for a healthy glow.

Yes, listen to your body and how you’re feeling and use your best judgement, but we use them very regularly.

Does the blanket have low EMF?

Yes, our blankets have been made specifically with low EMF heating and are certified. Enjoy the relaxing, stimulating effects of healthy infrared heat at its full potential. In today’s hyper-tech world, it’s more important than ever to provide your body with regular detoxification and reduce our exposure to electromagnetic frequencies as much as possible.

 

What is a SMOMAR blanket made of?

  • High-quality vegan leather with 100% polyurethane coupled only with a smoother, even grain which makes it easier to clean.

  • A charcoal layer to amplify the detoxification process. Activated charcoal boosts your energy, brightens your skin, reduces bloating and increases the body’s detoxifying activities. As the detoxifying elements of charcoal mix with the detoxing benefits of infrared heat helping your body to double expel the toxins. Actually, make that an all-natural double detox!

  • A medical-grade magnetic strip that promotes healthy blood circulation. A static magnetic field is utilised to improve blood circulation. Infrared heat boosts your blood circulation without magnetic components. Magnetising the experience just enhances this process, reeving up healthier, more oxygen-rich circulation. In addition to blood flow, magnets are utilised in wellness for cellular alignment, stimulated nerve activity and control of body acidity levels.
