As much as we love escaping to a luxury spa or wellness retreat for some much-needed pampering, it’s (unfortunately) not feasible for us to do every single day. The good news? You can bring the relaxing feel of the spa to your home with your own infrared sauna—and you don’t need to build an addition onto your home to accommodate it. Infrared sauna blankets are portable (many are even foldable), and they're causing quite the buzz in the wellness world. Small but mighty, these sauna blankets are purported to reduce stress, detox your body, increase “feel-good” hormones, bolster immune function, help with recovery after exercise, purify skin, boost cardiovascular health, and even improve sleep.

Our editors decided to test those claims by trying some of the most popular infrared sauna blankets on the market. While we’re not doctors (and you should definitely get your doc’s stamp of approval before trying any of these, since infrared sauna blankets can be harmful for people who are pregnant or have certain health conditions), we did notice improvements in sleep, skin, post-exercise recovery, and general stress levels. Here, our full review of the best sauna blankets.

CurrentBody Skin Infrared Sauna Blanket

Though it won't replace the health benefits of exercise, this infrared sauna blanket claims to burn up to 600 calories in an hour (whew!). You can also customize your perfect self-care routine with the sauna blanket's time and temperature settings. This kit has everything you need to get started—including a pillow, cotton towel insert, storage bag, and controller.

Reviewers say: “It's literally like having a spa day at home. During and after I always feel so relaxed and it does wonders for achy muscles. I even play a sound bath or meditation while I’m in there to double the relaxation. Definitely recommend, plus it’s so easy to use!”

HeatPod Sauna Blanket

This infrared sauna blanket is beloved by users for its endless customizability: You can choose from temps between 86-176°F and set the timer between 5-60 minutes for your perfect sweat session. Made from water-based vegan leather, it's buttery soft and sweat-resistant. Plus, the thick zipper allows for easy entry and solid heat retention.

Testers say: “I sometimes have trouble falling asleep after a long day (and admittedly too much screen time). I really enjoy putting on some soothing music and relaxing in this sauna blanket. It's a great transition into a good night's sleep. A bonus I wasn't expecting is the glow my skin has after a good detox session.”

Infrared Sauna Blanket

This sauna blanket features a single heating zone with nine different levels (one being the lowest and nine being the highest), as well as a 60-minute timer.

Testers say: “I love my HigherDOSE sauna blanket. It feels like a hug at the end of a stressful day, and I swear it helps me sleep easier—and more deeply. A 40-minute sweat session in this blanket while listening to an audiobook then taking a cold shower afterwards has become my self-care ritual.”

Infrared Sauna Blanket

If you love wellness gadgets with a side of woo-woo, this is the perfect sauna blanket. The interior is lined with 96 smooth jade and tourmaline stones to help hold heat and emit negative ions, and the blanket boasts EMF-blocking technology and toxin-free materials.

Testers say: “I was skeptical about this sauna blanket at first, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well it put me at ease and relaxed my muscles after one use. I usually set it at its highest setting and sit in it for 30 to 45 minutes before coming out sweaty (of course) and refreshed.”

LifePro Sauna Blanket

This sauna blanket is a great budget-friendly option, and it's ideal for those who are claustrophobic or like to multitask since it features optional arm holes.

Reviewers say: “Let's talk about the feature that truly sets the LifePro Sauna Blanket apart—the arm openings. Unlike other blankets that make you feel trapped, these openings give me freedom. I can read, sip herbal tea, or even check my phone while enjoying the sauna. It's a thoughtful touch that enhances the entire experience.”
