I’m incredibly frugal. I budget everything down to the cent and hardly ever allow for a splurge. It’s safe to say there are definitely no daily iced coffees and avocado toast in this household. But frugal as I am, my budget goes out the window every time it comes to my health. 

A new supplement? Gotta have it. A massage or chiropractor appointment after a strenuous workout? Sign me up. A $699 infrared sauna blanket? Currently sitting on my living room floor. 

The way I see it, my health is my number one priority. If I can proactively take care of my body now, hopefully, it’ll save me from spending money later in life, trying to get my health back. One of the ways I’m doing that is with HigherDOSE’s Infrared Sauna Blanket, which, yes, is expensive, but is hands down the best wellness product I’ve ever purchased. 

What is an Infrared Sauna Blanket? 

The benefits of saunas have been touted for years, dating all the way back to 2,000 BC. There’s no doubt that they have a whole host of positive effects on both our physical and mental health, but for most of us, building a full-sized wooden sauna at home just isn’t realistic. There’s also the option to sauna at the gym, but not all gyms have saunas, and it can be difficult to fit this in before or after a workout. 

Determined to find a way to sauna daily without moving to Finland, I ended up purchasing HigherDOSE’s Infrared Sauna Blanket, which I’ve affectionately termed my “sauna sack.” An accurate descriptor, this sauna is essentially a 6-foot-long “blanket” that you plug into a regular electrical outlet. After about 10 minutes, it begins to heat up, giving you a full at-home sauna experience that can easily be folded up and stored when you’re finished. 

The blanket has 8 levels of heat, so if you don’t want a full-blown sweat, you can set it between levels 1-5. Levels 6-8, on the other hand, get quite warm, and I was surprised to find just how hot it actually got. The sauna is meant to be used while fully dressed, and I’ve found that wearing slightly looser, cotton clothing works best. Avoid wearing something that you’ll need to wear later, as you’ll be drenched in sweat when you finish using the blanket. 

If you prefer the traditional, non-clothed approach, it’s recommended to use a Towel Insert. A regular towel works just fine, as well, but you’ll want one on both top and bottom, as the bag itself gets too hot for extended blanket-to-skin contact. 

The blanket has an automatic timer built in, which is set to turn off after an hour. You can turn the blanket right back on if you want, but I love that this feature is built-in in case I forget to shut it off or fall asleep while using it.

What About EMFs? 

While there’s still a lot of debate out there about EMFs or electromagnetic frequencies, it was important to me to find a sauna that had low EMF radiation, especially since I planned to use it daily. I love that this is a feature of the HigherDOSE Sauna Blanket, as well as that they use non-toxic ingredients to create the bag itself. 

The outer shell is made of a non-toxic PI leather body, which passes all non-VOC standards. After the shell, the blanket is lined with charcoal, clay, and magnetic layers. According to HigherDOSE, “Charcoal binds to pollutants, helping to flush out impurities and deepen your detox. [The] Clay layer emits negative ions and balances the heat. A grounding medical-grade magnetic strip improves blood flow and circulation.” 

Additional layers also include a “healing amethyst and tourmaline layer,” which is said to “naturally generate negative ions” and fight free radicals. Whether you believe in the power of crystals and charcoal or not, it was a plus for me to know HigherDOSE really put some thought into the materials they used to build this sauna. 

Is It Worth It? 

Don’t get me wrong, the price tag for this sauna blanket is steep, but for me, it’s been worth every penny.

I’ve used the blanket literally every day for the past two years of owning it (except for any time I’ve spent traveling), which shakes out to about $1/day. I find this to be a pretty reasonable price tag for something that reduces my anxiety, helps me sleep better, boosts my immune system, ward off diseases, and speed up recovery. 

While I’m clearly obsessed with this bag, you don’t have to take my word for it. Industry leaders like Luke Storey, Ben Greenfield, and Dr. Will Cole are all huge proponents of HigherDOSE’s Infrared Sauna Blanket, as well. Oh, and BTW, everyone I just mentioned has a discount code for this blanket, so you can save 15% if you do decide to purchase it. 

This review is completely my own opinion, as well. I wasn’t gifted this product, given a discount, or paid to write this article – I just genuinely feel that it’s been a great addition to my wellness routine.
