The patented chemical-free antimicrobial LED light does not use

Humidifiers have been shown to reduce the survival of the flu

humidified can help consumers breathe better and sleep more
comfortably. Even more, it also helps keep throat and nasal
passages hydrated, temporarily relieving cough, congestion, dry
nose and itchy skin, making the winter months more tolerable.
"If 2020 has shown us anything, it's that health is paramount,
