Cedar Hot Tubs the Green Choice

Jul 6, 2008
Hot tubs are becoming more and more popular, but for centuries, all types of people have enjoyed the luxuries and therapeutic treatment of soaking in a pool of hot water. Evidence of enjoying such an activity can be traced as far back as the Romans.

For thousands of years, hard wood has been used to create barrels and vats to hold large amounts of liquids. The production of cedar hot tubs comes back to this ancient production. Cedar is a popular material because it is such a resilient material, is slow to decay and expands when it is soaked in water. The earliest forms of hot tubs were cedar hot tubs, and cedar hot tubs are still popular today.

The 1970s saw the introduction of the plastic hot tubs that most of you may imagine when picturing a hot tub in mind. These became more popular, but over the years, people have begun to realize that these plastic hot tubs could never look as good and appealing as cedar hot tubs do, and so the popularity of cedar hot tubs is growing, and more people are choosing this more traditional style for their hot tubs.

Cedar is superior to most other woods because it has a very high tolerance and does not decay easily. This is very important! Some woods rot very quickly in damp conditions, but cedar does not, which is vital in creating a hot tub. It is very tough, which makes it ideal for keeping water tight, and makes it very insulating - meaning the water stays warm in this wood longer than it would in any other. Along with this, cedar has a very pleasant natural scent, which makes soaking in cedar hot tubs very enjoyable.

Just because cedar hot tubs are made out of wood does not mean that they can't have all of the technology of their plastic based counterparts. Cedar hot tubs can include digital technologies, micro filter systems, powerful pumps and hydro therapy spa jets. Cedar hot tubs come in different styles and sizes, from a more traditional circular shaped tube, to a Japanese 'Ofuru' oval shape soaking tub. Hot tubs can come in a more intimate size, made for two people, to a much bigger monster sized tub, that can hold up to ten or twelve people.

Cedar hot tubs are much more desirable than a plastic hot tub, for many reasons. Firstly, there is the aromatherapy and the ambiance that is offered by soaking in a hot tub made from a natural wood product. Cedar wood releases a very pleasant smell that only a natural wood can emit - plastic has no such aroma! Cedar hot tubs offer more than a plastic made hot tub can, yet the price is around the same. Whether plastic or cedar wood, you will be paying around the same price for your hot tub, so why not go for the ambiance of cedar hot tubs? The experience from soaking in a natural wooden tub is very rewarding and pleasurable.
