The hot tub has been handmade in Forres and is clad in local Scottish larch. We fill the tub with our own spring water and there are no chemicals added. The water is heated by a wood burner and wood is provided. We recommend that you drain the hot tub after use. You can then clean the hot tub and leave it empty ready to refill with fresh water when you want to use the hot tub again.
To use the hot tub, remove the lid and store it away from the wood burner. Use the paddle to stir the water and then check the water temperature.
A thermometer is provided and you should not use the hot tub if the temperature is above 40 degrees Celsius. Either add more cold water or wait until the temperature has reduced before entering the hot tub.
At a temperature between 39 and 40 degrees Celsius, time in the hot tub should be limited to 20 minutes. Exceeding this time limit can affect your inner organs and cause fever like symptoms. If the temperature remains below this level your time in the hot tub can be extended to one hour.
Please do not take any glasses or bottles into the hot tub, we have provided ceramic beakers for you to use if you would like to take something to drink outside.
Ensure that you stay comfortable and well hydrated while using the hot tub. Excessive use of the hot tub can result in nausea, dizziness or fainting. If you feel uncomfortable, then leave the hot tub until you cool down. You can re enter the hot tub but don’t over do it and always ensure you feel comfortable.
When entering and leaving the hot tub please take care as the steps and hot tub itself may be slippery. On leaving the hot tub your muscles may be very relaxed and you could feel unsteady, so move slowly and take care.
Please do not use any bubble baths, soaps or bath salts in the hot tub. The water circulates through the wood burner and any additives could damage the back boiler. Save the bubbles for the indoor bath and embrace the ritual an all natural forest bath.
