Just When You Thought Nothing Could Help That Pesky Sore Throat…
Did you know that each winter roughly 30 million Americans suffer from dry sinuses? Aka that chronic wintertime sore throat, dry mouth, and relentless nosebleed combo that shows up like clockwork once the thermostats kick on.
Luckily, there’s an easy way to lessen the severity of all these ailments—and it’s as easy as hydrating your air with the mist-free humidifier from Canopy. Unlike other traditional humidifiers that essentially spray water particles all over your room, Canopy uses smart sensors and paper filtration to ensure you’re always getting the right level of humidity—without spraying germs and mold.

Recent data has shown that not only does optimal humidity help with the traditional dry sinus conditions, but it can even help with limiting the spread of airborne viruses like cold and flu. This means properly hydrated air not only improves the quality of your symptoms once you are sick, but actually helps in preventing them all together.
To understand how all this winter relief can come from just one small appliance, we wanted to walk you through the design and technology behind our favorite new humidifier from Canopy.
How Canopy Helps Fight Winter Sickness
Water is great for our bodies. Studies have shown that a 40-60% humidity level is optimal to alleviate dry sinuses, congested airways and even sore throats. There is even evidence that both the flu and rhinovirus (the common cold) have a shorter survival time in humid climates—making hydrated air both an illness treatment and prevention method.
The problem is that evaporating that water into the air often leaves some residual water behind in the humidifier, which bacteria and mold thrive in. Once the humidifier becomes contaminated, so does the water it evaporates to the room…and you start to have a serious problem on your hands.
Canopy humidifiers solve this problem by using an air hydration method known as Smart Persistent Airflow (SPA)™. This technology uses smart sensors to continue running the unit until it’s completely dry inside—eliminating the chance for any bacteria or mold to grow. The water that is used is purified first through a UV light, and then released to the air via paper filtration (which catches any remaining bacteria or particles).
The result is a mist-and-steam-free humidifier that hydrates the air to any room, cleanly and without any water buildup on surfaces or the appliance itself. Your body and space are left hydrated, while bacteria and mold are not.
The Canopy Humidifier goes one step further and has an “Auto mode” which kicks on higher humidity during the night when symptoms are at their highest risk of worsening (which if you’ve ever woken up in the morning with a sore throat, you can attest). Set your Canopy, and let it automatically adjust to optimal humidity.
And for those with extra large rooms (or who want to use a single humidifier for their whole apartment) Canopy also makes the Canopy Humidifier Plus. The same diffusion and aromatherapy, all in a 5.5 liter tank capable of hydrating rooms up to 1,000 square feet.
A Sight for Sore Eyes (and Throats)
Beyond its fine-tuned, airway-soothing capabilities, one of the best qualities of the Canopy Humidifier is it simply looks gorgeous in any room. Unlike clunky metal humidifiers that look like they belong in a hospital, Canopy’s humidifiers are sleek and modern, with a design that makes them an elegant accent to any room. They even won a 2022 Harpers Bazaar Beauty Icon award!
For those that prefer adventuring beyond the classic white, Canopy also offers gorgeous matte colors like Lilac, Blush and Moonstruck, matching virtually any aesthetic.
Scents Worth Breathing In
Canopy understands that comfort is more than just settings and sensors. That’s why, in addition to their smart humidifier technology, they also offer a natural scented Aroma Kits bundle. These therapeutic scents let you turn your humidifier into your own personal aromatherapy center.
Canopy pulled out all the stops on their aromas, using all elements of the natural world to deliver you an incredible range of healing scents.

Scents like Lull delve into the soothing qualities of lavender and vanilla.
