As you slip into your hot tub after a long day, the temperature of the water and the soothing jets can make you wonder if anything could possibly be more relaxing. Actually, the answer is yes, and the thing that could be even more relaxing is your hot tub. There are several simple ways that you can enhance your hot tub to make the experience even more relaxing. Follow these tips, and you may never want to get out of the water.
The diverse properties of essential oils can really take effect when used in a hot tub. The combination of the already relaxing effects of the hot tub combined with the scent of the oils, both in the water and in the steam of the hot tub, can make for an amazing experience. Carrier oils are not needed or recommended for essential oils used in a hot tub, since the jets of the tub will distribute the essential oils, and the carrier oils can leave unwanted residue in your tub. Just add several drops and enjoy. Great oils to use include lemon, sage, and peppermint.
Aromatherapy Crystals and Bath Salts
Aromatherapy crystals and bath salts have similar effects as essential oils. Plus, they are made for soaking and add a great tactile effect to the scent that the salts provide. As they dissolve into the water, their benefits spread throughout the water and offer a wonderful effect without being overpowering. There are several kinds of salts and crystals made specifically for hot tubs, which is the best way to go.
