    The Perfect Romantic Hot Tub Night

    Love & Romance are good for your health. Romance can lower blood pressure, boost your immune system and even help you live longer.

    Studies also show that regular ‘date nights’ are a key element to a happy and long-lasting marriage.

    Many ThermoSpas hot tub owners say their hot tub has enhanced their love life and added more romance into their relationship.

    Creating a romantic hot tub night is not difficult, and to help, we’ve compiled a list of 5 sensory pleasing suggestions for a sensual and romantic evening in your hot tub.

    1. Mood Music

    Set the tone with a romantic playlist. You can make your own playlist , or you can build a playlist based on the mood you want to set like “in love”, “romantic”, or “sexy” with StereoMood.

    Lucky for you, ThermoSpas hot tubs are some of the quietest hot tubs on the market, so you don’t have to worry about annoying sounds ruining your ambiance.

    2. Love Lighting

    Think melting candles, tea lights, and Chinese lanterns. Many spas already come with LED mood lighting built into the hot tub, but adding candles is a definite mood enhancer. Also, low lighting will give you added privacy.

    Rose petals with floating candles are a romantic pair, and it’s better to add these elements with the jets off.

    If you are surprising your date, you can light up the floating candles and sprinkle some rose petals in the water right before you reveal your hot tub surprise; or, sprinkle a trail of rose petals that your date can follow all the way to the hot tub.

    Once you settle in to the relaxing waters, watch the sunset together or take a journey through the constellations in the night sky.

    3 .Seducing Scents

    Essential oils have been used for seduction since the time of Cleopatra.

    Smell is the only one of our senses that links directly to the brain and effects the same areas that are involved with sexual arousal.

    Hot Tub Aromatherapy is a powerful aphrodisiac!

    4 Romantic Essential Oils to Add to Your Hot Tub:

    • Lemon (uplifting)
    • Peppermint (aphrodisiac)
    • Clary Sage (aphrodisiac)
    • Geranium (romantic)

    Add a couple drops to your hot tub water then save to add to your massage oil for later…

    4. Finger Foods

    Light finger foods like oysters, asparagus, button mushroom; or for sweets, strawberries, chocolate and mini-eclairs will jump start start the taste buds.

    Add these finger foods to a silver tray along with flowers and candles if you want to kick it up a notch.

    5. The Final Touch

    This is where it all comes together – the mood setting music; the flicker of the candlelight; the arousing smells; the taste of savory or sweet finger foods; savored along with the touch of your partner – make for a romantic and fun evening you both will never forget.

  2. A Journey Through The Constellations… From Your Hot Tub

    Comments Off on A Journey Through The Constellations… From Your Hot Tub

    Stargazing From Your Hot Tub

    Impress your hot tub date with a guided journey through the constellations.

    What could be more romantic than exploring the universe together?

    Summer evenings provide an optimal opportunity to check out the stars and planets in the night’s sky. Usually it’s too cold to sit outside and star gaze in the winter months, but with a hot tub it’s ideal.

    The constellations that you will be able to see depends on your location and the time of day. We’ve compiled a chart of the constellations that you have the best chance of seeing during the month of February in the Thermospa Stargazing Chart (printable PDF file):

    Turn off all the lights around your hot tub, even the lights inside your spa. You will be warm and cozy in the bubbling waters of your spa, so relax and gaze up at the night’s sky and see what you can find.

    The mythological stories are great to share with your loved one or kids during a special evening in your hot tub:

    The Constellations of the February Night Sky

    Gemini – The Twins

    This is the highlighted constellation for February. This is a relatively easy constellation to find in because of the bright twin stars at the head of ‘the twins’ – Pollux and Castor.

    According to Greek Mythology, Castor and Pollux shared the same Mother, Leda. Castor’s father was the King of Sparta and Pollux’s Father was the god Zeus, making Pollux mortal while his twin was mortal.

    In China, they represent the dual forces of the ying and the yang.


    Gemini Constellation

    Orion – The Hunter

    Orion is the most popular of all the constellations and the easiest to spot from most locations. This constellation is most clearly visible from November to February.

    Just look out for the three stars that line up Orion’s belt – there are no other formation of stars in the sky that line up in this way.

    You can use Orion to try and locate the Milky Way.

    Orion proclaimed himself to be the best hunter in the world. The wife of Zeus had him killed by a scorpion, and Zeus put him into the sky as a constellation.


    Orion Constellation

    Canis Major – Orion’s Hunting Dog

    The ‘Big Dog’ is best visible in this month. The brightest star in the night sky, Sirius, is contained in this constellation.

    This star is bright because of it’s proximity to the solar system, it is also one of the closest stars to Earth.

    The stars of Orion’s belt point to the star of Sirius, and the star marks the neck of the dog constellation.

    In mythology, the dog, Canis Major, was a gift from Zeus to Europa. It was so famed for it’s speed, that Zeus sent it flying into the sky as a constellation.

    It also represents one of Orion’s hunting dogs, helping Orion fight Taurus the Bull (another constellation).


    Canis Major Constellation


    There are also some interesting astronomical events happening this month, like the chance to get a glimpse at Mercury.

    This month Mercury will reach it’s greatest eastern elongation, providing the best evening view of the planet all year.

    Other planets within view this month are Jupiter and Saturn. This is the third best month to view Jupiter. It is best seen in the south after sunset (a perfect hot tub time).

    Saturn is a planet to look out for if you are outside in the early morning.

    You may even be able to spot a passing Near Earth Object on February 15, the closest this particular object may ever get to earth!

    If you are one of the Thermospa hot tub owners that uses your spa every night, you will have plenty of chances to spot some of these amazing celestial events!
