What benefits are there to a hot tub aromatherapy experience
There’s no denying the incredible relaxation experience that a hot tub can provide. Whether you are soaking to unwind after a long day, or taking a dip with family and catching up on the day’s events, the feeling is unlike any other. Aromatherapy is a great way to enhance this experience, creating the perfect relaxation environment through the use of natural oils extracted from plants which create an indulgent fragrance to compliment your mood.
What is aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the practise of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The aroma that is inhaled and absorbed from these essential oils serves a range of different purposes, depending on the oil used. There are a number of different oils that each provide different benefits to the user, from calming lavender oils to uplifting peppermints.
Whether you are coming back from a long day and need to destress, or need to calm down from an exhausting work-out, a citrus or chamomile oil can be perfect for relaxing the muscles and letting yourself unwind. Alternatively, if you are just feeling a little low, a lavender oil can help you feel happier and lift your spirits. Lavender oil is incredibly popular among aromatherapy users as there are multiple varieties, so choose one that you enjoy the scent of and maybe experiment with different strengths.
On the other end of the scale are the invigorating, energising oils. These consist mainly of the rosemary and peppermint scents, which can be used individually or together for a fantastic, uplifting aromatherapy experience. These are perfect for those bliss few minutes spent in the hot tub whilst preparing for having guests over or going out to a social event, empowering you to take on the day with a renewed energy.
As well as the relaxation or energising properties, aromatherapy also works wonders at creating a sense of premium luxury, the combination of beautiful fragrances filling the air and making you feel as if you are in a spa. Not only this, but the natural oils also help to leave the skin soft and moisturised, really enhancing the overall experience for the user.
