What Is Hot Tub Aromatherapy?


If you thought that your nightly soak in your hot tub couldn’t get more soothing and relaxing, then think again! Hot tub aromatherapy is taking the spa world by storm, accumulating many devout followers. Aromatherapy is a natural therapeutic technique that can help encourage good physical and mental health. By diffusing aromatic essential oils into the air, these scents can target specific receptors in your nose and your brain and can help you relax, unwind, and feel your absolute best after a stressful day.

When combined with the positive effects of hot tub hydrotherapy, there’s no telling how relaxed you’ll feel.


Aromatherapy has been practiced around the world for thousands of years, and for good reason. It boasts many benefits, which can lead to your overall improved wellbeing.

Hot tub aromatherapy can help you decompress after a hard day at work or after a strenuous workout. It can help soothe aching joints and tight, painful muscles. Many people have reported that it can also relieve the pain of headaches and migraines, too. For those who struggle with insomnia, hot tub aromatherapy can also help with your tossing and turning at night.


It can be tempting to rush out and buy a small vial of aromatherapy oils and dump them directly into your spa, but please resist the urge to do anything hasty or impulsive! The fact is, these oils can not only damage your spa and clog up the filter, they can also be harmful if applied directly to your skin. Visit your local hot tub, pool and swim spa store to find aromatherapy scents that are designed specifically for the spa. The experts at Sundance Spas of Edmonton would be more than happy to help you find the perfect fragrance!

If you’ve been struggling with restless nights, you may enjoy adding lavender to your hot tub. This purple plant has been shown to help with insomnia, leading to a more restful night’s sleep for you. If you get severe headaches, you can reach for eucalyptus. This scent can also invigorate you, so be careful if you are struggling with poor sleep. Finally, jasmine can help you shake off a negative mood, allowing you to calm down and feel tranquil.
