“Essential oils are great for bolstering your immune system and your ability to defend against pathogens.” – Dr. Sam Bahan

Whether you already feel a cold coming on, or you want to stop invading illnesses before they begin, aroma steam therapy can strengthen your defenses when you need it most.

The temperature and humidity in the steam room stimulates blood circulation, sweating, and the immune system, helping to release toxins from the skin, muscles, and lymphatic system.

Pain relief, increased metabolism, released endorphins, respiratory detox, and other cleansing benefits help strengthen the body's defenses. Deep moisturizing from the steam also gives skin a healthy glow while acting as a protective seal against airborne pathogens.

Adding pure essential oils to steam room therapy helps increases therapeutic effects for a deeper physical and emotional response.

Optimal Wellness Center's Dr. Sam Bahan, D.C., explains, "When you use an essential oil, you are harnessing the adaptive intelligence of the plant. This intelligence was strengthened and honed over hundreds of thousands or even millions of years of survival. This makes essential oils great for bolstering your immune system and your ability to defend the body from pathogens."
