Smelling Salts are used by athletes all over the world in almost every sport. They work by giving the body a sudden rush of adrenaline that helps you reach peak performance! Uncap, sniff, perform. Ward Smelling Salts are shipped "unactivated" so they do not lose any potency during shipping or by sitting on the shelf. Activate your bottle by adding one teaspoon (5ml) of water. Then enjoy high performance smelling salts that last weeks to months! We're not exaggerating when we say our smelling salts are insanely strong, try it yourself.
