Guide to Ensure a Relaxing Sauna Blanket Session

To make the most of your sauna blanket experience, check out some tips on how to have a relaxing session.
  • Set the Mood: Create a calming ambiance in the room. Dim the lights, light up some candles, or use soft lighting to help you relax.
  • Choose Calming Music: Play music that is soothing, or nature sounds that can enhance relaxation. Music can help drown out any outside noise and create a tranquil environment.
  • Aromatherapy: Use essential oils or aromatherapy diffusers to make the atmosphere relaxing with scents like chamomile, lavender, or eucalyptus. The combination of heat and aromatherapy can be very soothing.
  • Prepare Comfortably: Lay down on a yoga mat or a comfortable cushioned surface. Make sure you have pillows and a blanket to support your head and keep you cozy.
  • Hydrate: Always drink a glass of water before and after your session to ensure you're hydrated. Keep a water bottle nearby during the session as well.
  • Breathing Exercises: Perform deep breathing exercises to help you relax and calm your mind. Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and exhale slowly through your mouth.
  • Mindfulness or Meditation: While in the sauna blanket practice mindfulness or meditation. Focus on your breath or use guided meditation apps to help you stay present and relaxed.
  • Visualize Relaxing Scenes: Keep eyes closed and visualize yourself in a peaceful and calming environment, such as a beach or a forest. Visualization can enhance the relaxation experience.
  • Stay Still: Avoid unnecessary movement during the session. The goal is to allow your body to relax and sweat. You may stretch gently or move extremities if needed but avoid vigorous activity.
  • Hydrate After: Rehydrate your body by drinking more water after your session. Adding a pinch of electrolyte-rich ingredients like a squeeze of lemon or a pinch of Himalayan salt can be beneficial.
  • Wear Comfortable Attire: Choose loose, breathable cotton clothing or opt for a towel to cover sensitive areas. You may also use a sauna blanket insert to enhance comfort. Comfort is key to a relaxing session.
  • Limit Distractions: Keep your phone off or on silent mode to minimize distractions. This time is for you to unwind and focus on relaxation.
  • Follow Safety Guidelines: Your safety and well-being are top priorities. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations for sauna blanket usage. 

Remember, the sauna blanket session is your time to relax and take care of yourself. Listen to your body and adjust the temperature and session length according to your comfort level. If you ever feel uncomfortable or experience any adverse effects, it's important to stop the session and cool down.
