I purchased an at-home steam sauna from Wayfair. It is currently out of stock but there are similar ones on Amazon and Wayfair should restock soon. ***back in stock now
Pros: This is the best purchase I’ve made this year thus far because the fact that I can use it at home makes the process more hygienic. Additionally, having my head out of the steam area allows for a more comfortable extended time in the sauna room because the cool air makes the warmth of the room more bearable. I love to add a little eucalyptus oil to the bottom mat. The armholes in the room are convenient to reach for things like the side pocket, to hold a cellphone or a cup of water. There is only one side pocket.
The setup was fast and easy, the only confusing part was the tubes and understanding where to put them but after seeing videos of others putting it together it became easy; just one outer tube to the steam machine and another to the small white steam pot that goes under the chair. Overall, love how effective the steam room is and how I feel afterward like I just had a full body massage.
Cons: The water MUST be filled to the max line on the steam machine or it will not start. The machine is a little slow to start steaming up so I always use boiling water to speed up the timing. When I do fill to the max line and use boiling water it only takes about 5-7 minutes to fill the room with steam. It does take a little time to dry out the room after use like about 30 minutes. I like to use a hairdryer to dry the inside and air out the bottom mat outside on my patio. The remote control does not come with the necessary AAA batteries.
Overall, I love this machine and I cannot recommend it enough because for the price you get your money’s worth in only 2-3 uses. It is more hygienic and private as a portable room and you can set the mood however you like from the privacy of your own home. In my beauty learning journey, I’ve found that steam is the key to everything from hair growth to clear skin. If you invest in one self-care item this year I recommend a full-body at-home steam sauna. ❤
