How it works

When essential oils are inhaled, they travel through the free brain chemistry (neurotransmitters -> hormones releasing) and can cause changes in the body. Further, part of the inhaled molecules goes to the lungs, where it is absorbed into the blood through the blood-air barrier, then reaches the body where it can perform its effects.

Perform in a small sauna where the oils can fill the air fast.
Don’t bring the bottles into the sauna. They heat up and destroy the essential oils. Instead dispence your oils in ice or use small bowls with water to put them in.

12 – 15 minutes

The session

  1. Pour water over the stones to cool them down. It will make the effect and fragrance of the essential oils better and they will travel faster in the sauna.
  2. Add Pinus sylvestris (Pine) to the water and pour on the stones : Pine purifies the air, stimulates the immunesystem, makes breathing easier and makes airways clean
  3. Wave
  4. Eucalyptus Smithii : A true winteroil. Not only is eucalyptus used with respiratory complaints, it activates the red blood cells so the lungs can absorb more oxygen.
  5. Wave
  6. Mentha x piperita (peppermint) : Fresh purifying fragrance that dissolves mucus and makes breathing easier.
  7. Wave
