People have been enjoying the benefits of saunas for thousands of years. The sauna we know today originated in Finland more than 2,000 years ago and has gained increasing popularity in the United States.
Saunas are generally very simple areas, lined with wooden walls and benches. The temperature ranges from 90 degrees to 185 degrees. There is very low humidity, so the heat feels drier.
Most sauna sessions last between 10 to 20 minutes, plus around that same time cooling down in a shower, pool, or cooler dressing area nearby. The experience aims to help you relax, unwind, and destress, but it can be good for your well-being and vitality.
The benefits are so worthwhile that EuroSpa Aromatics has created products to support this practice and augment the amazing effects. Here are some ways that you can boost your health this fall with a sauna.
Detoxify Your Body
A session in the sauna can flush toxins from your body. The heat increases your body’s temperature and blood flow, which activates your sweat glands. Deep sweating forces the toxins out of our bodies. This response is similar to what happens during intense exercise.
If you are fighting congestion, sinus, or allergy-related issues, saunas can provide relief from the symptoms. The warmth can help open up nasal passageways and the sinuses, easing the pain and annoyance of sinus pressure.
Fight Off Germs
Exposing your body to the heat from a sauna will kick your immune system into high gear. The heat will enable your body to rapidly produce more white blood cells, which is how our bodies fight infections, colds, viruses, and other illnesses.
Soothe Tired Muscles
You can find relief from tired, achy muscles in a sauna. The heat will help to loosen the stiff, overworked and tense muscles and supports quick healing of the muscle tissue.
Promote a Healthy Heart
Regular sauna visits can improve cardiovascular health by conditioning the heart. The heat makes your heart work harder, increasing heart rate, and in essence, giving it a workout. This will keep blood flowing more properly and decrease heart-related risks.
Enhance Your Experience
To enhance your sauna experience, check out our Menthol Crystals. These all-natural crystals are colorless and clear, and a natural by-product of steam distilled peppermint essential oil. In the sauna, these crystals release a dry heat-generated aromatherapeutic vapor.
Our Menthol Crystals can be placed in a small container near the heat source in your sauna or steam room or placed in a metal bowl in direct contact with the heat source. You can also scatter them between the wooden slats on the floor of the sauna.
The beneficial vapors will rise into the warmth of the room and naturally augment the benefits we mentioned above.

The winter holidays are known for bouts of binging on the treats we look forward to all year. And it’s no wonder either. But then there’s the guilt that follows – and you end up regretting everything you enjoyed so much.
So what do you do? Skip out on the fun and festivities? No way! However, if you really want to enjoy them – make sure you’re balancing out all that sugar with some healthier practices.
Drink a LOT of water. Water is cleansing and balancing. It helps to detox the extra sugar you’re consuming as well as dilute it so you don’t get that dreaded sugar hangover.
Eat twice as many greens. Similar to water, greens detoxify and balance out your body. They are packed with minerals which are the opposite of sugar. So eat plenty of them and even better – grab a high quality green powder supplement.
Drink less alcohol. Not saying you shouldn’t have a drink or two, but keep it at that. More than two drinks overwhelms your liver, dehydrates you and reduces your sleep quality.
Sleep. Don’t skimp on the rest. It’s when you sleep that your body has the chance to detoxify what it’s been given. So either go to bed at a decent time, or make sure you’re able to sleep in the next morning.
Detox Deeply. What goes in must come out. The best way to do this is through hydration and sweat. Water carries a ton of our toxins out of the body so make good use of it. Run a hot shower or sit in a sauna/steam room and breathe in the heat. For an even deeper detox, add a few sprays of our Eucalyptus Shower Mist into the steam and let it clean you out and relax you at the same time!
We want you to be healthy and also enjoy your life. There will always be many occasions in life that call for sweets and sugary delights. It’s just about finding balance. And then the benefits will come through for you!
When nausea hits, your nerves start to go wild. Sometimes you know the cause and other times you don’t. What’s more important is that nausea doesn’t lead to any further problems. So you’ve got to handle it fast.
We at EuroSpa Aromatics want to share our favorite tried and true remedies to quickly and safely defeat nausea. Here are three great ways to do so:
Our go-to for handling nausea is essential oils. Why? Because using the highest quality oils has an undeniable effect on the body and mind. We have formulated a Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist that eases not only nausea but also supports your respiratory, musculoskeletal, circulatory, and nervous system. Spritz the spray around your head and body, being careful to avoid your eyes. This can be done in your home or even better, in the steam of a shower for more intensified results.
Essential oils penetrate the skin and circulate throughout the body in a matter of minutes. In addition to inhaling their healing fragrance, you can also place them on the bottoms of your feet. This allows the body to absorb essential oils quickly and disperse them throughout your body rather than having to take something orally. And if you’re suffering from stomach ailments or nausea, this will come as a relief, since you likely can’t handle anything orally anyway.
Another way to alleviate nausea is to spray the Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist behind and around your ears or to suck on a peppermint. This has been a reliable technique for a long time, and it’s surprising at how fast this can work.
A third option, if you have a health food store nearby, is to grab a bottle of charcoal capsules. Take two every hour or two whenever you have an upset stomach. The charcoal goes into the stomach and binds to the toxins and bacteria, flushing them from your system.
If you’re tired of using less than helpful products to feel better and are ready to experience true health and vitality, start with a powerful small step. Get a bottle of Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist today. Your whole body will thank you.

It’s hard to wake up in the morning and see signs of aging and tiredness all over your face. As a society, we move too fast, eat too little nutrients, overwork, undersleep, and are dehydrated. Our faces and skin show it. But it can be dealt with and treated with these simple tricks and tips.
4 Tips to Reverse Aging:
Lemon Water Cleanse: After you wake up have a small glass of lemon water. You can boil water or have it cold, add the juice of half a lemon, and sweeten with honey or stevia for taste if needed. This cleanses your digestive system, detoxifies the skin and blood, rejuvenates your body, and makes your body less acidic. Disease and unstable health thrive in an acidic body. Part of lemon water cleansing your digestive system is cleaning out your kidneys. The bags and dark circles you may see under your eyes are from overwhelmed kidneys.
Face Massage: When the kidneys and liver are overworked, the lymph in the eyes begins to back up. Basically, the bags are sitting toxins that need to be expelled. Thus, in addition to drinking lemon water, do this exercise.
- Close your eyes. Place your four fingers (not the thumb) under the eye and gently apply pressure with your fingertips along and under the eye bag area.
- Take your middle fingers and gently sweep the same area from the inside to the outer corner underneath the eye—be careful not to stretch the skin.
- Repeat this action 5-10 times when applying moisturizer morning and night. This will keep the area flushed.
Steam With Eucalyptus: Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist is a great addition to any anti-aging routine. Turn up the steam in the shower and spray the eucalyptus onto the walls, floor, and into the steam. The mixture will open the pores in your face and activate the antimicrobial cleansing properties of the Eucalyptus. Also, inhaling the steam will help cleanse your bronchial passages, allowing for a full body cleanse that will be reflected in your skin.
Drink Your Green Juice: There’s a lot of hype about green juice these days, and it’s for a good reason! Greens tone your skin and blood, adding vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. This results in brighter eyes, tighter skin, and rosier cheeks. And don’t worry—there are PLENTY of delicious recipes online for incredible tasting juice.
