2022 Infrared Sauna
Product of the Year:
HigherDOSE Infrared Sauna Blanket
When it comes to infrared sauna blankets, we tried them all. Among over 30 potential candidates for 2022… drumroll please!
Not surprising for the HigherDOSE Sauna Blanket, not at all. It is the original at-home infrared device that literally started it all and the best seller on the planet. They’ve never stopped leading the pack! There’s good reason why they’ve long been recommended by celebrities and health experts — HigherDOSE has a superlative product. And they’ve done a great job of popularizing infrared healing therapy to the general public.
That said, it takes more than social media follower counts to get our 2022 Product of the Year prize. Read on to learn more about features, benefits, product support and more — we break it all down for you.
Now, to be clear, you don’t have to spend this much to get the benefits of infrared sauna. If you are on a tight budget, or just getting started in infrared sauna, there are plenty of cheaper infrared sauna blanket options to try. But if you want to start strong, this is your gig right here!
The difference is in the quality. “Blankets” is kind of an odd term, in that the outer layer is usually plastic or leather. Let me tell you, you will REALLY feel the difference between leather and any sort of plastic version you might find.
The leather outer layer (top and bottom) really takes the blanket to the next level as far as pleasure of ownership.
Let’s look at what’s inside:
COMPONENTS AND INGREDIENTS
The HigherDOSE sauna blanket is two steps above what we normally see. The original design was developed by Dr. Raleigh Duncan (of Clearlight Infrared) in 2017 and has been on a steady improvement path ever since through research and customer feedback. The 2022 blanket (known as “The v3”) uses a layered approach. This gives you extra healing-oriented ingredients you just won’t find in other sauna blankets. Here’s a layer by layer breakdown:
- Charcoal (great for detox)
- Amethyst Crystals
- Tourmaline Crystals
- Clay (which generates negative ions and helps balance the heat evenly on your body)
- Low EMF infrared heat
- Non-toxic PU leather
HigherDose is known for the quality of their NYC spa experience. If you were holding the blanket right now in your hands, you’d agree that it feels like a high-end spa product.
When it comes to the benefits of infrared sauna blankets, HigherDOSE checks every box. We’ve sweated away quite a few hours in ours, and we can report the following effects:
- Deep relaxation
- Glowing skin
- Mood boost
- Increased blood flow (like you are on the treadmill, but lying down in comfort)
- Better daily rejuvenation and recovery
- Gives you that STOKE: all the “feel good” chemicals your body makes
- Use in the comfort of your own space, on your own time
USE AND STORAGE
The beauty of infrared sauna blankets are their portability and ease of use. This is where HigherDOSE has really leaned in. The construction is surprisingly light weight. The blanket can quickly be pulled from a closet or under a bed. Use it for a guest bedroom sweat session, or bring it to a friend’s place and enjoy a session together!
We always recommend a plastic container to keep dust at bay. Just make sure the blanket is clean and dry before you store. If you don’t… um, enough said.
