The purported health benefits of sauna use are numerous. Although, sweat may seem like something you’d rather do without, it’s actually great for the body.
The health benefits of sauna use extend to our entire bodies
According to Dr. Julian Whitaker, a respected American physician, sitting in a sauna has the same health benefits as mild exercise. By sitting in a sauna for 15 minutes a day, you can improve your circulatory system because the heat dilates the capillaries improving the flow of blood. Besides refining our cardiovascular system, sauna use can help with rheumatoid arthritis, musculoskeletal issues, skin conditions, chronic fatigue and even mild depression. However, the most important health-related benefit of sauna use is that it makes us sweat.
Using scented essential oils is very popular in saunas. Most commonly, a few drops of oil are added to the sauna water bucket. When water is ladled over the sauna stones, the steam gives off a pleasant fragrance. By far the most common scented essence is eucalyptus. Lavender is also a very pleasant and popular scent for aromatherapy. Others may include pine, birch, citrus, and peppermint.
