Fragrances awaken memories in us. We also call this sensation olfactory perception. Some fragrances immediately take us back to our childhood. Images are created in front of our inner eye which are triggered by the respective scent. We are accompanied by scents that we associate with a beautiful event for the rest of our lives. And always, when we perceive this smell, we are reminded of this beautiful event. These memories are activated by the limbic system, the location of our emotions. The subjective sense of smell is influenced by experience and therefore individually different.
The physical- and psycho-objective effect is the same for every human irrespective of the experience values, since neurochemical substances such as encephalins, endorphins, serotonin and noradrenalin are released in the limbic system by olfactory stimuli. This knowledge serves, among other things, as the basis of aromatherapy, in which the effect of natural aromas and essences is specifically applied. Special use is made of room scenting in sauna, spa and wellness because here the effect of the scents used on the body is sought directly.

However, the scenting of rooms is not new, but has a long tradition.
Legend has it that King Solomon scented the guest rooms for the Queen of Saba so beguilingly that the Ethiopian imperial dynasty arose from the royal relationship.
Room fragrance is an ancient cultural asset. People have always used plant scents, i.e. natural essential oils, for their well-being. But also to stay healthy or to become healthy again. This huge wealth of experience is increasingly confirmed by the scientific findings of recent years. The renaissance of room scenting and the growing importance of aromatherapy are therefore only logical. The scenting of rooms is originally also an expression of appreciation towards the guest or the customer. A successful room fragrancing is also today not conceivable without this basis.

Possibilities of room fragrancing

While dealing with room fragrancing in the sauna, spa and wellness area, the first question arises: How do you bring the fragrance into a room or to an application?

There are three ways to transport fragrance:
• Via water
• Via steam
• Via air

Where and how are these three fragrance transport routes used?

Fragrance via water
• In the shower / adventure shower
• In the brine inhalation with scent
• In the sauna about the sauna infusion. Sauna versions: Finnish sauna, Russian banya.
• In relaxation rooms through a fragrance fountain, which also serves as a humidifier, e.g. in the tepidarium and laconium.
• Typical applications of indoor climate: hot and dry (sauna), warm or cold (adventure shower), cold (brine inhalation), warm and dry (laconium, tepidarium)

Fragrance via steam
• In the steam bath and caldarium
• In the Hamam, Rhassoul
• In the biosauna and soft sauna
• For air humidification
• Typical application area of room climate: hot and humid (steam bath) as well as warm and humid (Hamam, Rhassoul)

Fragrance via air
• In the relaxation room
• In the relax room
• In the Laconium
• In the Tepidarium
• In changing rooms
