Hype Dust™ has been carefully developed to replicate the strength and consistency of ampule-style smelling salts that everyone knows and loves. Every bottle is produced in small batches to ensure quality and 100% ANHYDROUS with absolutely NO WATER REQUIRED. EVER!

Hype Dust replaces Obsidian Original (for all you Original fans out there) - Hype Dust uses the same formula but comes in a bigger bottle with a new metal cap. For those not familiar with Obsidian Original we have included the reviews to give you an idea of the performance of this new Hype Dust (just bear in mind that it is even better!).


While Obsidian is pre-activated and ready to go on delivery with no need to add water, an unopened bottle will remain fresh and potent until you finally open it. Once opened Obsidian will pull moisture from the environment to keep things spicy for up to six months.

No liquids to spill, no water to add, just good sniffs and heavy lifts.


Nothing is worse than buying a new bottle of ammonia only to find out that it's gone flat after only a few weeks. That's why Obsidian used high-grade materials and a dash of science to formulate the longest-lasting smelling salts on the market, bar-none.


The potency of Hype Dust will be affected by cold temperatures.  This is an unavoidable characteristic of the materials used and is common among non-liquid smelling salt. 

Optimal performance can be obtained at room temperature (20°C/73°F)


If your bottle has lost potency you may be able to squeeze some more life out of it by warming it up to reactivate the production of ammonia.  

You can gently warm your bottle in hot water (90-100 C) for a few minutes, or toss it in the microwave on high for 8-10 seconds. Your mileage may vary.

Great smelling salts

Hype dust smelling salts are a good product they are strong without taking your face off just the right amount of boost without losing focus. Another great product from a great company. I brought these for a comp, 47kg fed pb so they certainly helped for the big lifts.

What a smell !

Fresh and spicy like a sharp knife in your nose, first time for me and never felt as strong as after smelling the hype dust. First time and i recommend it but follow the instruction if you dont want to get your nose knocked out like me the first time i've open it

Thanks for your review - we appreciate it! Enjoy your Obsidian Hype Dust. When you're ready to go up a level try Obsidian Ultra or Saiyan Salts. Happy lifting!

If you're new to salts then this is the one to go for. When it's within a month of opening it'll blow your scalp off. Even when it's past that time it still provides a good enough hit with the tip of your nose touching the bottom of the bottle. If you want something that will make you feel as though you've been hit around the head with a shovel, might I recommend the Saiyan Salts. Because after all, who doesn't want to go super saiyan?

Thank you for taking the time to write a review Thomas. It is really helpful for us and our customers. It is great to hear you have been enjoying the smelling salts! All the best with your training.
