To create the perfect hot tub atmosphere, feel free to use aromatherapy oils specially formulated for hot tub use. Hot tub aromatherapy can be a wonderful way to enhance your summer relaxation experience. Even in summer, you need to pay attention to a few things to enjoy your stay.

Essential Oils and Scents

  1. Citrus Oils: Citrus scents like orange, lemon, and grapefruit are refreshing and invigorating, perfect for a summer pick-me-up. Enjoy the refreshing scents while relaxing!
  2. Eucalyptus: Eucalyptus is not only a winter favorite, but you can also use it in the summer. This oil has a refreshing and cooling effect, perfect for hot days.
  3. Lavender: The fabulous scent of lavender provides light relaxation. Known for its calming properties, lavender can help you unwind after a long, hot day.

Tips for Safe Use

  1. Check Compatibility: Ensure that the essential oils or aromatherapy products you use are safe for hot tub use and won’t damage the equipment or affect the water chemistry. Never use oils that are not made for hot tubs!
  2. Dilution: Essential oils should be properly diluted before adding to the water to avoid skin irritation. Read the instructions on the bottle and use the hot tub oils accordingly.
  3. Moderation: Start with a small amount of essential oil and increase if needed. A few drops are usually enough. Do not overuse, as it can easily cause irritation.
  4. Maintenance: Regularly clean your hot tub to prevent any build-up of oils which can affect water quality and equipment. Proper filter cleaning and regular water drainage are important.

Creating a Relaxing Atmosphere

  1. Lighting: Use soft, ambient lighting around your hot tub area. LED lights or floating candles can enhance the experience. Make sure you use a light source that is waterproof.
  2. Music: Play soothing music or nature sounds to complement the aromatherapy. The pleasant music makes you feel even more relaxed, and the subtle fragrances add to the feeling of tranquility.
  3. Temperature: Keep the water temperature a bit lower in the summer to avoid overheating. Around 90-95°F (32-35°C) is often comfortable.
