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.
