5 Benefits of a Home Sauna

2024's most-desired room for the home

One of the major trends we have identified this year is a move towards holistic design within home interiors. This could be as simple as an at home gym, upgrading the bathroom to make it feel like an at-home spa or adding a sauna to the home or garden.

Having a sauna may feel like a luxury, but its health benefits are fast making it one of the most desired items for the home. And, there are a number of plug and play solutions for your home, and pods for your garden that are within reach. If 2021 was all about the office or studio pod, now it's about creating your very own spa at the end of your garden.

But what are the benefits that make the at home sauna so desired?

1. Stress Relief

After a long day at work, there's nothing quite like stepping into a sauna and feeling the stress and tension melt away. The heat and quiet environment help you to relax and unwind.

2. Improved Circulation

The heat from the sauna causes your blood vessels to dilate, which in turn improves circulation. This increased blood flow can help with muscle recovery after a workout and promote overall cardiovascular health, helping you feel more energised and even improve skin health.

3. Detoxification

Sweating is one of the body's natural ways of detoxifying, and the sauna takes this process to the next level. It's a great way to cleanse and rejuvenate from the inside out, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalised.

4. Muscle Relaxation

Heat from the sauna helps to relax muscles and relieve any tension or soreness. The warmth soothes aches and pains, promoting a sense of well-being and physical comfort.

5. Mental Clarity

The quiet, meditative atmosphere combined with the physical relaxation helps me clear the mind and focus on the present moment.

Elevate the experience with essential oils

Incorporating essential oils into your sauna experience can create a spa-like atmosphere and enhance relaxation, making your sauna sessions even more enjoyable and restorative.

Eucalyptus and peppermint which can be found in our Onsen blend, have natural decongestant properties that can help support respiratory health. Inhaling these oils while in the sauna can open up the airways and provide relief for congestion and respiratory issues.

Other oils like Lavender, have moisturising properties that can benefit the skin, you can find this in our Clean Essential Oil Blend.
