Here at Smomar, we’re big believers in the incredible healing and detoxing powers of far infrared saunas. For us, an infrared sauna is an absolutely indispensable wellness aid, which is exactly why we offer an at home portable sauna version in the form of our infrared blanket.
Read on to learn more about the science behind this life-changing wellness device, and discover what makes Smomar infrared sauna blanket so superior
The science behind infrared saunas
“Most of us in our culture live in a stressed point. Using the sauna will reset the set point in your autonomic nervous system between fight or flight and rest and digest […] and this is just so huge for healing.”
– Dr Raleigh Duncan, Wellness specialist and Clearlight Infrared Founder
Within recent history, the traditional Finnish design of a wooden hut heated by steaming hot stones and water has dominated the sauna industry. But over the past decade, a different type of sauna has been steadily winning widespread praise, with devotees spanning health experts, celebrities (from Lady Gaga to Gwyneth Paltrow) and mere mortals alike. This type of sauna is the infrared sauna; specifically, the far infrared sauna – and it’s fast becoming an established feature of the wellness scene.
So how does a far infrared sauna work, and is using one really capable of relieving injury, boosting immunity, firing metabolism and giving skin that elusive glow?
Within the complete spectrum of light, infrared is an invisible band that we experience as heat.
Think about lying on the beach on a disappointingly cloudy day. When the sun suddenly appears for a moment, you feel a rush of comforting warmth spread across your skin. That lovely warm feeling is the infrared band within the sunlight heating your body. The far infrared heat produced by your Smomar sauna blanket is totally safe as there are none of the harmful rays of sunlight produced by our heaters, just natural healing heat. In fact, this heat is so safe that is it used in hospitals to keep newborns warm.
While a traditional Finnish sauna heats the space and air around the body, infrared saunas (like Smomar infrared sauna blanket) use infrared light rays to heat the body directly – from the inside out. Infrared heat works by warming your core body temperature, penetrating tissue more deeply and thereby producing more extensive health benefits.
Far infrared rays consist of similar wavelengths to those that are emitted naturally by our bodies, which may explain why so many people feel rejuvenated and energetically rebalanced after using a far infrared sauna. Far infrared rays work to activate the body’s sweat glands, and are capable of dissolving harmful substances that can build up in your body, vitalising cells, boosting metabolism and improving blood circulation.
What makes Smomar infrared sauna blanket different from other sauna blanket brands?
Delivering therapeutic results with cutting-edge infrared technology.
The Most Powerful Full-Spectrum Heaters On The Market
Amazingly, the pioneering True Wave™ Full Spectrum infrared heaters included in all Smomar Infrared Sauna Blankets are a staggering 25 times more powerful than those of the closest competitor.
Innovative Heating Technology
Smomar blanket’s unique far infrared heaters have been specially designed to produce optimal healing wavelengths between 6-12 microns.
Energy And Cost Efficient
Smomar infrared sauna blankets are designed to run off household mains, and take just 5 – 8 minutes to heat up before you can hop in. Costs for using a Smomar infrared sauna blanket come in at between 7 – 15p per hour, which – given their miraculous health benefits – seems very good value indeed.
Your safety comes first
Exceptionally Low EMFs
The carbon heaters inside a Smomar infrared sauna blanket are proven to produce extremely low electromagnetic fields (0.3 μT to 1.5 μT). This means that when you relax inside a Smomar infrared sauna blanket, the levels of potentially harmful electromagnetic radiation that your body is exposed to (which can be alarmingly high in competitor brands’ saunas blanket) are virtually undetectable – leaving you feeling reassured and free to detox and heal safely.
Non-Toxic, High-Quality Materials
We use non-toxic materials in the construction of our blanket saunas. That means absolutely no nasty chemicals, toxic glues or varnishes. Smomar's luxurious outer fabric is made with 100% polyurethane only with a smoother, even grain that keep the heat inside the blanket – rather than any noxious fabrics (as cheaper PVC can do) – when heated.
Premium Quality, User-friendly

Using A Smomar Infrared Sauna Blanket Could Help You To:
- Purify and deeply cleanse your skin, leaving it glowing and rejuvenated
- Fully relax and totally destress, thanks to the sauna’s ability to diminish destructive stress hormones and stimulate the parasympathetic (or ‘rest and digest’) nervous system
- Boost your immune system by raising your core body temperature – thereby tricking it into a temporary ‘fever’ state and stimulating the body’s natural immune response
- Reduce blood pressure and improve heart health by dilating and reducing the inner lining of blood vessels
- Ease muscle pain and relieve joint ache with the healing power of deep-tissue penetrating heat
- Improve sleep quality by increasing levels of serotonin, our natural relaxation hormone
- Detox your body, ridding your system of built-up chemicals and metals through induced sweating
