Create a Japanese Hot Spring Experience in Your Hot Tub

December 15, 2010

One of my favorite hot tub scents is a dry powder of hot spring essence called: Magma Onsen Beppu. Magma Onsen is made from the waters of the famous Umijgoku onsen (hot spring) located in Beppu, Japan which you can see in the photo has turquoise water from geothermal hot springs.

This bath salt formula is one of the most popular bath products in Japan. Japanese women, and even men, rave about it’s ability to smooth and soften the skin as well as provide a relaxing, soothing soak. A special blend of perfumes and fragrances are added to enhance relaxation and engage the senses. It has a fresh, clean scent and contains potassium, magnesium and other volcanic minerals from the 1200 year old therapeutic hot springs in Japan.

In Beppu, soakers use the hot springs for “medical purposes” as well as relaxation. At the famed Beppu Research Institute, arthritis and rheumatism sufferers experience temporary relief from aching joints while soaking. Magma Onsen helps to maintain the acid/alkaline balance of the skin with a ph of 7.5 to 8.5 while providing a deeper relaxation to over-worked, stressed, and tired muscles and joints. It’s safe for hot tub filtration and plumbing systems and can be used in either hot tub, spa or bath tub.

Many of our customers swear that it has an analgesic effect that lasts longer and causes deeper relief than soaking in their Hot Spring Spa without it. We weren’t able to supply it for almost a year and during that time a woman came into the Olympic Hot Tub Company Seattle store hoping to purchase a can. She’d just run out and couldn’t be without it. When she heard that we we out of stock with no current importer, she burst into tears. Dramatic? Yes.  But she said between sobs that Magma Onsen Beppu was the only thing that helped her leg cramps. She put some in her Hot Spring Spa once a week and soaked every night for 100% relief from pain.

Suffering from arthritis, fibromyalgia, joint pain? Magma Onsen Beppu in your hot tub is worth a try! NOTE: Magma Onsen Beppu is not a sanitizer or pH adjuster-it’s a scent with analgesic properties.

It’s available in all Olympic Hot Tub Company stores and in our e-store.
