What is an Oxygen Bar?

An oxygen bar offers oxygen treatment delivered through a concentrator and with a cannula that fits under the nose. Treatments last anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes at a time. 

Modern day breathing air contains around 21% oxygen, but an oxygen bar uses a system to deliver concentrated oxygen at a rate of up to 95% by filtering out the atmospheric gases that are an unnecessary part of room air. You may think that most of your energy comes from the food that you drink, but it may surprise you to know that over 90% of your energy comes from oxygen. If your energy levels are low, or you are experiencing headaches, mood swings or trouble concentrating, then recreational oxygen therapy can significantly reduce the symptoms while improving vitality with little to no risk to the user. 

Oxygen bars combine essential oils with pure oxygen in a way that creates clarity and focus while promoting tranquility, cheer and harmony. Some of the most popular flavors in oxygen bars include Eucalyptus, Gardenia, Peppermint, Vanilla, Lavender, Lemongrass, Cherry, Spearmint, Orange, Almond, Cinnamon, and Wintergreen. Each flavor is made by bubbling oxygen into the Aroma bottles that hold water, essentials, and therapeutic Grade aromas. Lastly, the vaporized scent is pumped into the bottle through the hose.
