While it’s not the first company to bottle and sell air, German-based Salinenluft is getting into the game and they want to make it known that their air is better than the competition.
It’s easy to dismiss the product as a gimmick, but there are those out there that find it beneficial in areas where air pollution is so bad that something like this helps.
Bottled near the German town of Bad Kreuznach, in the Saline Valley, Salinenluft believes they have produced some of the cleanest and healthiest crops of air around. With its many hot and salty springs, the water is put through a process that separates the salt components, and as the salt water evaporates, it also transports some of the salt into the air, giving it a seaside quality.
When that salty air is mixed with the luscious air of the surrounding valley of steep hills, mountains and rocks, Salinenluft claims it creates a special micro climate.
Salinenluft claims the method of actually bottling this special air is one that the competition can’t beat due to the “German engineering”, and the company is so proud of it that they produced a two-minute video to convince you it’s so good. I just hope the air is better than the quality of the video.
So whats the cost of a bottle of German air? Well that’s hard to say as the website currently lists the bottle of air as free for the United States with a $3.03 shipping cost. We have reached out to the company to get clarification as the cost in Germany is €60. If you order now though, you may get a steal on this air. Cheaper than a plane ticket right?
