Eucalyptus and menthol: a fragrant journey in the sauna
Eucalyptus is known for its fresh, slightly pungent scent. This plant, which originally comes from Australia, has made a name for itself worldwide. The scent of eucalyptus is particularly effective in the sauna. It is not only refreshing, but also cleanses the airways.
Menthol, which is often extracted from peppermint or other mint varieties, perfectly complements eucalyptus. It gives the air a cool, clear note and contributes to a feeling of freshness and purity. When eucalyptus and menthol are used together in the sauna cabin, a unique aromatic experience is created that invigorates the senses and contributes to relaxation.
Health benefits of the eucalyptus-menthol combination
The combination of eucalyptus and menthol in the sauna offers more than just a pleasant fragrance experience. These natural ingredients have several health benefits:
- Improving respiratory function: eucalyptus oil opens the airways and makes it easier to breathe. Menthol has a similar effect and can provide relief, especially for colds or respiratory illnesses.
- Stress reduction and relaxation: The scent of eucalyptus and menthol helps to reduce stress and tension. These natural aromas have a calming effect on the mind and promote a feeling of serenity.
- Promoting skin health: Eucalyptus oil has antiseptic properties that can have a positive effect on the skin. In combination with the cleansing effect of the sauna, this leads to improved skin health.
- Strengthening the immune system: Regular sauna sessions, especially with eucalyptus and menthol, strengthen the immune system and increase resistance to colds and other illnesses.
