Oils for a Hot Tub

In Link-in discussion group recently, the question was posed, "Has anyone information on what oils to use in a hot tub and the procedure?

Jane Kovel replied with this information:
We have a 680 gallon hot tub that is almost 2 years old. We did tons of research about using non-chemical products in the hot tub. I found 30 pages of testimonials on the Pine Hill Group (yahoo groups). Here is what we do. When we fill the tub with fresh water we put in 5 drops of Geranium. That's it. We change the water 2-3 times a year. About once every 8 weeks or so we add 1-2 drops. We have a large garbage can with lid that we fill with water plus 1 cap Thieves household cleaner. My husband hoses down the filter with a high pressure hose and then soaks it overnight in the thieves/water mix. Then he hoses it down again and puts it in. We alternate with 2 filters. That is it. Our tub is always crystal clear, no scum, no slime, nothing.....just beautiful smelling clear, clean water. Hope this helps. 
Wow - that is so exciting to me, to think that you can use Geranium and Thieves Household Cleaner, instead of expensive, toxic chemicals.


I love the Thieves Household Cleaner!  It has replaced almost every cleaner in my home, and I love the fact that I can clean and inhale without having to have the windows open, the fan on, and wondering how much toxicity I am breathing in. This cleaner offers a non-toxic, biodegradable, all-purpose cleansing solution using therapeutic-grade essential oils.  It is fully biodegradable and complies with EPA standards.

Now, I'm ready to go to Jane's and get in her hot tub!  :)

  1. Hi... we are the first time user of hot tub and we are learning more on how we can keep our hot tubs healthy and clean. We have a Renew 6 Person Hot Tub Spas that we got up from La-Z-Boy® spas for our party. Chlorine can be found in water, some suggested to use bromine well I have no idea on what to get.. Still the search is on but if you have something to suggest please feel free to share with us.. Thanks @ Janice.
