Many will agree, there is no better time to soak in a hot tub than just after a snowfall. The contrast of the brisk air against the warm water of your spa can help you to feel refreshed and revitalized.

Not to mention that the cool air makes the warm water all the more enticing. To complete your next hydrotherapy session, we have put together a list of the best hot tub accessories to use this winter. Read on for more!

1. Warm Robe

Walking to and from your hot tub doesn’t have to be a chilling experience. A warm and durable robe can help to keep you warm while not in the water but outside of your home.

Not to mention that they are easy to put on and take off, reducing the amount of time that you are cold and wet, with no towel or clothing to keep you warm. Especially when maneuvering your hot tub covers.

We suggest finding a robe with a terry cloth-like material, so that the water is properly absorbed from your body and swimsuit. To take your spa experience to the next level of luxury, invest in a rack or towel warmer to keep your robe dry while you soak your worries away.

2. Waterproof Slippers

While a robe can help to keep your body warm and dry, we can’t forget about your feet! Especially if the ground outside is cold, or there is a light dusting of snow, you don’t want to end your comfortable hydrotherapy experience with cold feet.

The right pair of waterproof slippers can help to keep your feet dry and warm when traveling to and from the house and your hot tub. Not to mention protect them from any twigs or stones that might be on the ground.

3. Drinkware

No hot tub session is complete without the right drink! Whether you are staying warm with a peppermint hot chocolate or keeping your body hydrated with refreshing water, the right drinkware is essential for your spa.

  • For warm drinks, we recommend a reusable thermos. This will help to keep your drink warm, and reduce the risk of any liquid spilling into the spa water.
  • For cool drinks, we recommend a reusable water bottle. This will help to keep your drink contained, cool and eliminate the need for single-use plastics.

If you are entertaining guests or looking to jazz up your soak on a Thursday night, a floating glass might be right up your alley!

This form of drinkware is made with your hot tub in mind, so the material can withstand the heat, floats perfectly in the water and are available in different colors and styles.

4. Aromatherapy

De-stress this winter, especially with the hustle and bustle that is often associated with the winter months and holiday season. While your hot tub on its own is an effective tool for relaxation and easing stress, it can be amplified with help from aromatherapy scents.

These spa-friendly products can be added to your hot tub water safely and emit the scent of your choosing. These scents can help to further your relaxation, boost your mood and even help you connect with positive memories associated with the scent.

Visit your local hot tub store to find a selection of spa-friendly aromatherapy products, among other hot tub accessories.

Please note that you should never add essential oils, bath bombs or other products not made specifically for the hot tub, as this can result in damage to your spa, hot tub features or an imbalance to the water.

5. Warm Hat

While your body stays warm when immersed in the water, the top of your head and ears might feel the cold after soaking for a little while! Keep your head toasty warm and avoid ears that are numb and red with a hat or headband.

We suggest finding a hat that is a toque style or a headband that is thick, as a baseball cap won’t do a great job of keeping your head warm.

Before you know it, you’ll have a hat to match every bathing suit!
