What Is An Oxygen Bar?

An Oxygen Bar is an establishment that allows people to breathe in oxygen enriched air for recreational use. Aromas are often added to enhance the experience. The aromas in an oxygen bar come from bubbling oxygen through bottles containing aromatic solutions before it reaches the nostrils. Most bars use aromas derived from natural sources or approved food grade scents in a water base but some bars use aroma oils. Breathing in non-medical scented oxygen at an oxygen bar delivers 4 to 5 times the amount of oxygen present in normal air. The experience leaves customers feeling refreshed, full of energy and detoxified.

Oxygen bars became popular in the 1990’s in Japan, then spread to California and have become very popular in Las Vegas.

Today, oxygen bars appear in many countries and many venues like salons, spas, health clubs, resorts, tanning salons, coffee houses, night clubs, airports, shopping malls, yoga studios, staff  rooms, casinos, and many more.

They can also be found at trade shows, conventions, corporate meetings, sporting events, as well as private parties such as Dry Grads, Weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvah’s and promotional events. They are fun, healthy, and make great conversational pieces. Everyone wants to know “What is an Oxygen Bar?’
