Hot Tub Aromatherapy Tips
Smell is one of our most powerful senses. It can help us relax, energize us, and lift our moods. By using aromatherapy in your hot tub, you can create an even deeper therapeutic experience that improves your well being.
Below you’ll learn about the benefits of aromatherapy and how to harness them to enhance your hot tub experience.
Aromatherapy, also known as scent therapy, has been around for more than 6,000 years. Although it is an old art form, it is still used today in medical and therapeutic settings to improve well being and treat chronic issues like insomnia, depression, and stress.
Many hot tub manufacturers including Hydropool have created aromatherapeutic systems that are specially designed to add an extra therapeutic dimension to your hot tub experience. Below you’ll learn about some popular and effective scents to try.
Lavender is known for its ability to calm the mind and the body. It is recommended to help people overcome sleep problems, depression, and anxiety. In addition, it is a circulatory stimulant, so it can relieve muscle pain, cramps, migraines, and other body pain. It is also recommended to treat skin conditions like scars, stretch marks, sunburns, and skin infections.
Jasmine is another natural oil that can help you relax and unwind. It is known for its mildly sedative properties and ability to relax the central nervous system, which means it can help treat depression and anxiety. In addition, its warm, floral fragrance is known for its sensual properties.
Mint is a widely used aromatic herb, being used for headaches, nerve pain, improved alertness, and better concentration. Mint works by increasing blood flow, so it’s also helpful for pain caused by arthritis as well as muscle pain. If you have dry skin, it can also help stimulate your skin’s ability to produce oil.
Eucalyptus is another popular aromatherapy choice, especially for treating illness. It has been used to treat aches and pains, altitude sickness, sore throats, sinus issues, and even flu and fever. If you have a cold, adding eucalyptus oil can help open your sinuses so you can breathe better.
