The Best Aromatherapy Scents To Add To Your Hot Tub

There’s nothing quite like slipping into your swirling hot tub and taking a deep breath as the water surrounds you after a long day. But, what if as you inhaled, you were hit with an intoxicating scent that sent chills down your spine as you entered a fully relaxed state of being? Well, click your heels three times, because some aromatherapy dreams do come true!  

The Best Aromatherapy for Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions out there, affecting up to 40 million adults in the U.S. alone. But, you can kiss both anxiety and stress goodbye with a healthy dose of lavender or jasmine. A few other options for reducing stress include spruce, fir, rose, or pine. And, where anxiety lives, chances are depression or insomnia isn’t far behind. Pack the bags for depression’s departure when you add rose, geranium, or basil to your spa’s water, while a touch of tangerine should do the trick for those sleepless nights. 

The Finest Spa Additives for Pain

An expert at combating pain with therapeutic massage jets, a hot tub is the place to go for muscle pain, migraines, arthritis, post-workout soreness, and so much more. So if it’s body pain that ails you, try nutmeg, rosemary, or lavender. peppermint and basil work wonders on migraines as well. 

The Greatest Choices for Physical Healing

Did you know that soaking in a hot tub can help with physical ailments, too? Add some aromatherapy like lavender or chamomile to help heal bruises. If you’re feeling a bit stuffy, pine, eucalyptus, and fir can help to open your sinuses and relieve chest congestion. Even certain skin conditions can benefit from a spa additive like chamomile, or eucalyptus. 

Aromatherapy scents are a wonderful addition to your hot tub sessions, but always make sure that they are made to be used in your spa. Bath bombs, bubble baths, and regular old essential oils can permanently damage your hot tub. Are you ready to find the perfect Hot Spring® Spa to come home to?
