Adding Essential Oils In Your Sauna

sauna kitsSpending time in the sauna can bring you maximal relaxation, but when enhanced with essential oils, it makes it all the better. Essential oils come in various scents with different properties, depending on your preferences. Begin by adding a few drops of the oil into the water, allowing for dilution, as the smell is strong on its own. It's important to not pour the oils over the rocks but instead add the essential oil and water mixture to the sauna water bucket or rock tray. After doing so, the steam will give off a pleasant aroma from your chosen unique oil. 

Below are the best essential oils for home saunas kits and how to utilize each scent.

Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus is among the most popular scent for aromatherapy use. If you are a morning person, try this oil to help energize and wake you up before a busy day. This aroma is a natural stimulant used in the Finnish tradition for years due to its healing properties.

Lavender: If you have trouble sleeping, are experiencing high stress, or have tense muscles, lavender is perfect for you. The sweet and floral aroma adds calming and relaxing properties to your DIY sauna kit so that you can sleep peacefully with lower stress levels.

Peppermint: Peppermint essential oils are great for relieving pain and energizing in the mornings. Peppermint oil is excellent for alleviating headaches and inflammation with a cooling, mint aroma.

Lemon: If you prefer a fresh, citrus scent, lemon oil is great for any DIY saunas. Since lemon contains antiseptic properties and is a natural detoxifier, it is often used to unclog pores, tighten the skin and minimize wrinkles. In addition, it is a great oil to use when cleaning. Simply add water, a few drops of oil, and white vinegar to effectively clean your sauna. 

For centuries, aromatherapy has helped improve health and wellness for many individuals. Essential oils and home saunas are a perfect combination for optimal tranquility. All you need is a few drops, and you're ready to go!
