The majority of people purchase an outdoor hot tub with the simple intention of relaxing. By the time we get home, the only thing most of us want to do is just sit down and unwind.
Of course, having a spa is the perfect remedy for a hard day, but did you know that it can get even better than that?
With aromatherapy spa fragrances, your hot tub can be used to help alleviate your stress levels even better, while simultaneously healing your body.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a therapeutic technique that has been used around the world for the many benefits that it can offer one’s health. Through the power of scent, individuals may be reminded of a positive memory that can help to reduce stress and help them feel better.
For instance, lavender may remind one of their mother’s favorite perfume, triggering a memory of fondness and comfort, while others may be reminded of their nighttime routine. When using pure essential oils, the health benefits stretch further, helping to reduce feelings of pain, headache, anxiety, negativity, and sleeplessness.
Essential oils are not only good for your mental state but they can also be used to help improve the quality of your skin!
However, although pure essential oils can be very useful, they should never be added to the water in your hot tub. There are specific spa-friendly products that will not harm the circulation or filtration system of your spa, while still helping you achieve a state of bliss and relaxation.
Hot Tubs, Stress, and Aromatherapy
When adding spa-friendly aromatherapy fragrances to your hot tub, it’s important that you keep in mind your likes and dislikes.
If you’re someone who loves the smell of lavender, adding a few drops of spa-friendly lavender oil to your bath can help you feel more relaxed. If you prefer citrus scents, adding lemon or grapefruit can be invigorating and help to improve your mood.
There are many different ways that you can use aromatherapy in your hot tub to help you relax. One method is to add a few drops of spa-friendly oil to your bathwater before getting in. You can also put a few drops on a cloth and inhale the fumes, or use a diffuser to disperse the scent around the tub.
No matter which method you choose, it’s important to speak with one of the experts at your local hot tub store, such as Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Backyard Living of Surrey, to learn more about their available aromatherapy products and ultimately find the best one for you.
Some of the scents you may find can include:
Start with just one or two and see how you enjoy your experience, then begin to build your collection. If you’re having a stressful day and are looking to sleep it off, may we recommend adding lavender and soaking in your spa before bed?
On the other hand, if you’re having a therapeutic girls night, the vanilla or a fruity scent may help you set the tone. If you’re looking for a more invigorating experience, eucalyptus can help increase your energy and alertness.
