Hate the thought of running on a treadmill just so you can eat that 1000 calorie snack? Wish you could lose weight while watching Netflix? Dying to know if there’s truly a genie in a bottle out there?
Well, your wish is my command! POOF, and enter: The MiHIGH Sauna Blanket.
In true #LGG (Lazy Girls Guide) style, we bring to you an infrared sauna you can whip out in the comfort of your own home. Whether you’re sitting on your couch watching the latest season of Good Girls, or laying in bed thinking about all the suckers that are sweating their a$$es off in the gym, this blanket is the perfect calorie-burning device without having to lift a finger.
MiHIGH Co-owners, Edward Hodge and Wyatt Westmoreland explain to us the benefits of an infrared sauna, how to optimally use the blanket and who it’s best suited to.
WHAT IS AN INFRARED SAUNA?
- Better sleep
- Weight loss
- Relief from sore muscles
- Relief from joint pain such as arthritis
- Clear and tighter skin
- Improved circulation
- Helps people with chronic fatigue syndrome
The MiHIGH blanket is suitable for most but if you are “Pregnant, elderly or have any pre-existing health conditions, you should always check with your doctor.”

As advised for optimum results, I used the MiHIGH blanket 3x a week for 45mins and boy, it can get quite hot in there!
I’ve used a regular infrared sauna before, and one of the downsides is that it can get quite boring sitting in a wooden box for an hour worrying if your phone will stop working once your session is done.
The MiHIGH blanket is similar to a sleeping bag, but a lot heavier. Being a scaredy-cat, I started out at 30 degrees, and soon turned the dial to 50 as recommended. While the blanket can be set up to 80 degrees, I have not found the courage to dial it up that high, yet.
I found the time passed a lot quicker in the blanket compared to the traditional infrared saunas, most likely because I was able to squeeze in an episode of Ozark right before dinner.

At first, I was worried about how to keep it clean, and where in my tiny one-bedroom apartment I can store it. Alas, it’s super easy to wipe down with Dettol Spray and of course with all new purchases, when there is a will there is always a way to find space!
Cost: $649.00 – Yes it’s quite the investment, but when I think about my current gym membership at $99 a fortnight which I find myself using 1-2 times a week at best, I say it’s waaay worth it!
FYI, there is a waitlist for these blankets so be quick and put your name down for one as I’m sure the next round of stock will be swooped up in no time.
