Heaven Scent: Using Fragrances to Unleash the Therapeutic Power of your Hot Tub

There’s nothing quite like slipping into your hot tub after a tiring day and letting your powerful jets work their magic on your aching bones and tight muscles. After a few minutes you begin to feel more relaxed and rejuvenated.

But what if you’ve had a particularly stressful day? Your neck and back are particularly stiff? You feel more drained than normal? 

Or what if you pushed yourself a bit harder on your workout, ran a couple of miles more than usual or attacked one more hill on your bike?

Or you are just having trouble relaxing, or sleeping?

And your massaging jets are not quite enough.

You could book yourself into a spa for the weekend. Or you could get a good sports massage, see a chiropractor or an osteopath? That would do it.

You could… but who has the time or the money to do that every time you feel a bit ‘meh’?

Especially when you have a hot tub, right in your back garden. You just need to unleash the hidden powers of your hot tub. And you don’t have to leave the house or wear those funny little slippers.

By using spa fragrances, you can turn your hot tub into an aromatherapy machine that can alleviate all manner of ailments leaving you feel totally refreshed, relaxed and revitalised.

What fragrances can I use in my hot tub?

It is vital that you use aromatherapy crystals that are specifically designed for your hot tub. It may be tempting to use fragrances or crystals that aren’t hot tub specific but be warned. Many lotions and fragrances are made using oils which can easily clog up your filters and leave a nasty film on the surface of your water. These oils affect the finely balanced pH of your water which could result in you having completely clean and sanitise your tub and water.

There are a number of brands of aromatherapy scents on the market that are perfect for your hot tub. At Hot Tubs Rock, we stock the Spazazz range of crystals. They are one of the brand leaders, making hot tub fragrances sine 1993, so they know what they are doing and they have created a huge range of crystals for any occasion, whether it’s relaxation, muscle relaxation or just an alluring aroma to replace the hint of chlorine you might not be a fan of. 

What can I use aromatherapy crystals for?

The Spazazz range of hot tub fragrances that we stock at Hot Tubs rock all come in crystal form so it’s just a case of putting a couple of capfuls into your tub for that soothing aromatherapy experience (Check out our selection here). Fragrances not only enhance your hot tub experience, they can also improve your physical health and state of mind. Some fragrances are created to wash away those aches and pains, give you the pick-me-up that you need or soothe away the stresses and strains of modern life. Not to mention how good they smell.
