Yes, you can really buy portable saunas on Amazon — and apparently Kate Hudson is a fan!
Ready to get sweaty? Apparently a lot of people are at the moment — and not just because it’s January. Saunas aren’t new, but these little rooms are hot in more ways than one right now and, of course, Amazon has found an affordable way for just about anyone to get the sweaty Scandinavian experience anywhere you want: You can get the OppsDecor Portable Steam Sauna for just $80.
Saunas and steam rooms are deeply ingrained in Scandinavian culture — in Finland alone, there is one sauna for every three people in the country — but there’s been an uptick in interest in the United States over the last few years. Pandemic related? Maybe. Some spas claim a good sweat in a steam bath is a way to detox or get the results of a workout without cardio or lifting weights, but there yet. What they do offer is a relaxing experience, just remember that you’re exposing yourself to extreme heat and if you have health issues or are pregnant, make sure to consult your doctor.
You can get portable saunas that use steam or infrared heat. As its name suggests, the OppsDecor Portable Steam Sauna uses steam. This sauna is kind of like a pop-up tent that comes with a small chair that fits inside. It zips to close with a slot for your head and hands. The steam generator pumps the steam into the tent through tubes that you can operate with a remote control. It takes about seven minutes to heat the sauna, which can get to temperatures as high as 149℉. If you want to take your spa experience to the next level, adding herbs or essential oils to the water in the steam pot gives off that scent we expect from a luxurious steam room.
Saunas have become popular enough that people are building them on their properties — that includes Kate Hudson. She reportedly had a sauna built into her LA home.
“The one thing I've always done, because I learned it from my mama [Goldie Hawn] who's the best, is, ‘Sweat it out’ — it's the hot and the cold,” she told . “I love my cold plunges. And I love my saunas. My mom and I will both say the sauna’s our happy place.”
When she can’t use the one at home, she’ll use a sauna blanket or a portable sauna like the OppsDecor Portable Steam Sauna.
Nearly 1,400 Amazon shoppers are already fans of the OppsDecor Portable Steam Sauna — and they are an enthusiastic bunch!
"Just when I thought I couldn’t get any hotter this sauna came into my life and did just that," wrote a rave reviewer. "Now I’m fitter, funner, and freakier than ever! Most days I’m just counting down the minutes until I can get home, jump into this bad boy, and really sweat one out. 5 Stars all day for making me a 10!"
"This thing gets hot!!" shared another excited shopper. "I love me a sauna. I come out of it dripping in sweat and I love it. The sauna is soooo worth it and I have and will continue to recommend it to more people."
