How long does Zone Smelling Salts last?

Around 3 months usually, however some people have continued to use their bottle for over a year.

What do Zone Smelling Salts do and how do they work?


Smelling salts are a chemical compound that releases small amounts of ammonia gas, that essentially jump starts your body’s nervous system.


The ammonia causes blood vessels in your nasal passages to expand providing an instant increase in oxygen to your brain which gives your body an instantaneous boost of alertness and power.


Why does Zone Smelling Salts come inactive?

  • To provide you with the longest possible life span

  • To allow you to travel anywhere in the world with it inactive. 

  • Will not have any shipping issues. Sometimes pre-activated smelling salts can pop open in the mail creating a big mess. 

  • Eliminates any storage issues created with weather conditions and it will not sit in storage losing life span.  


What happens if i add too much water? 


Only add the recommended water ONCE to activate it. Just a Zone cap is good and it will be good to go forever. Too much water can suffocate the ammonium gas and make it very weak.  This can also cause the product to get messy. 


Is Zone Smelling Salts dangerous ? 


Zone is safe to use as long as you follow the directions on the bottle properly and do not abuse it like anything else. Please do not dump it in your eyes or mouth.

What is the difference between Zone smelling salts, Zone Elite and Bear Down ? 


Zone Elite and Bear Down are quite a bit stronger then regular Zone. Regular Zone would be more comparable to the snaps found in medical kits, the strength is a lot more controllable.  


Zone Elite and Bear Down are roughly the same formula and basically the same strength. The difference is both are linked to different charity’s.


Elite donates to Catch a Lift Foundation to help wounded veterans get physically and emotionally better through fitness. 


Bear down donates to the Papabear Foundation which helps young kids afford to compete .


What happens if smelling salts get left in direct heat once activated? 


You should avoid leaving your bottle of smelling salts in the sun or in your car on hot days for prolonged periods of time.  This can cause the salts to start crystallizing around the edges . This won’t hurt the product just makes it a little messy. Heat can also dry out the salts a little to fast weakening the potency and life span.
