Sauna oils from organic cultivation

Essences for sauna infusion can be either artificial, nature-identical or purely natural. Corresponding mixtures are also available. Natural organic sauna oils are characterized on the one hand by their high degree of natural purity and on the other hand by the fact that they do not contain any artificial additives. For this reason alone, organic sauna oils are considered particularly skin-friendly and generally well tolerated, even by sensitive individuals, for example, with respiratory diseases. Organic sauna oils can be used very sparingly because of their high content of purely natural essential oils.

The somewhat higher purchase price pays off in many cases

Due to the natural ingredients, which have to be extracted from the various plant parts in a complex process, organic sauna oils are often considerably more expensive than their artificial imitator products. In the production of sauna oils in organic quality, manufacturers must comply with very different specifications and legal regulations.

Although the term organic is not legally protected in connection with sauna oils, it is still frequently used. In order for end consumers to be completely certain that they are purchasing a natural sauna oil in organic quality, attention should therefore also be paid to other quality criteria. Of course, the slightly higher price alone is no guarantee that a sauna oil has been produced purely naturally and organically.

Pay attention to the organic label when buying

Manufacturers who voluntarily submit to the more or less strict criteria of an organic label must adhere to them in the production process, otherwise the corresponding organic certificate will not be awarded. There are very strict but also less strict organic seals for sauna oils with the corresponding certificates for the award.

The stricter the requirements of a label for sauna oils, the more sauna users can rely on the natural purity. Before purchasing, the criteria of an organic certificate can also be asked in detail from the manufacturer. Sauna-goers should know that nowadays almost every scent can be artificially recreated in the laboratory.

Organic sauna oils are pure, natural and authentic

It goes without saying that a genuine and certified organic sauna oil does not contain any additives, fragrances, perfumes, or preservatives. Natural organic sauna oils are therefore purely natural essences, mostly in the form of essential oils obtained from plants. However, not only the manufacturing process plays a role, but also the origin and cultivation of the raw material.

If plants are cultivated specifically for the production of organic sauna oil, the cultivation must already be carried out according to organic, bio-dynamic criteria. Thus, end users can have the assurance that it is indeed, from cultivation to production, an organic sauna oil.

Voluntarily, manufacturers can still comprehensively check the organic sauna oils for any residues or synthetic offcuts after the manufacturing process. The requirements for the final quality of the product are therefore then extremely high. Certified organic sauna oils are considered to be of the best quality due to the outstanding product properties and therefore guarantee a very special, very well-tolerated and natural sauna experience when infused.

Are there alternatives to organic sauna oils?

If you prefer to work with natural components such as twigs, leaves and flowers, only the plant parts and water are needed. Herbs like chamomile, jasmine, lemon balm, lavender, peppermint, rosemary, grapefruit, and thyme are often used here. We have summarized how to do it here in this article.
