Everything You Should Know About Spa Aromatherapy

Is that springtime we smell in the air? While it might be, there’s nothing quite like the joy and relaxation that comes with spa fragrances. When you add these spa-friendly scents to the already rejuvenating and relaxing water, you can experience a truly invigorating aromatherapy session.

In this article, we’re going to take a closer look at spa aromatherapy and the benefits it can offer, especially when combined with hot tub hydrotherapy. For more information, get in touch with the experts at Sundance Spas Kitchener.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a therapeutic technique that harnesses the power of scent. Certain scents or fragrances can spark or improve moods, trigger memories and even promote improved health and wellness. Traditionally, this technique often utilizes pure essential oils to achieve these health benefits, although they can still be achieved through spa-friendly products.

The Benefits of Hot Tub Aromatherapy

Engaging in regular hot tub aromatherapy sessions can result in many health improvements – especially when combined with the power of hot tub hydrotherapy, which utilizes buoyancy, heat, and massage to offer emotional and physical health benefits.

Certain aromatherapy scents are known to trigger different benefits. For instance:

Peppermint or Tiger Balm

  • Boosts energy levels
  • Improves focus
  • Enhances mental alertness
  • Enhances mood
  • Alleviates symptoms of congestion
  • Aids in digestion


  • Reduces symptoms of respiratory illness
  • Fights migraines and headaches
  • Eases aches and pains
  • Enhances concentration


  • Improves relaxation

If you are considering bringing the power of this therapeutic technique to your hot tub to reap the health benefits, we suggest only using spa-friendly products. Products that aren’t made for the hot tub can cause water irregularities and even clog the filters, among other system disruptions. You can find spa-friendly products at your local hot tub store, including Sundance Spas Kitchener-Waterloo.
