Aromatherapy has been around since ancient times and is known as a treatment that can have a positive effect on a person’s health and well-being through the use of aromatic substances. Depending on the aromas of the herbs, flowers and plants used, you can achieve a variety of results, from full calmness and relaxation to invigoration and rejuvenation.
At Banya No.1, aromatherapy occurs naturally inside the steam room as birch, oak and eucalyptus tree twigs are used in our treatments. The high temperature causes the essential oils from these trees to evaporate and pass through your respiratory system, immediately enriching your bloodstream and giving you the feeling of refreshment and renewal.
Moreover, aromatherapy can affect your body through the skin. High temperatures enhance the elimination of toxins while at the same time helping to open up the pores through which the skin absorbs useful essential oils and minerals.
Therefore, during a visit to the banya you will be able to experience all the delights of our aroma steam procedure.
• The evaporation of natural and essential oils from the birch tree is one of the most powerful ways of promoting skin renewal and regeneration. It restores the skin’s elasticity and firmness, and cures serious dermatological disorders and cellulite.
• Oak oils have an antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effect, promote the healing process, and relieve inflammation.
