A Review of Jacuzzi’s Clearlight Sanctuary Infrared Sauna

Hi guys, today I’m talking about one of the newest items we’ve incorporated into our health routine – the full spectrum infrared sauna by Jacuzzi!

Saunas have been around for centuries, with the oldest dating back to around the 1100s. These days they’re mostly found in health clubs and spas, but companies like Jacuzzi have made it possible for you to also enjoy them in the comfort of your own home!

After spending hours researching and comparing brands, we decided on Jacuzzi’s Clear Light Sanctuary model.

This is a full spectrum infrared sauna that features cleverly placed Low EMF True Wave™ Full Spectrum heaters in the front, on the back wall, side wall, under the bench, next to your calves, and in the floor. This placement helps to concentrate the heat evenly on your body, surrounding you with high quality infrared heat.

The size of this model is not overpowering, and it can still comfortably fit my husband and I. This model is meant for one person, but we do sit in it together (for reference I am 5’0” and my husband is 5”11”). We chose the classic cedar wood finish, which smells amazing when it heats up!

One of my favorite features is the ability to play music, audiobooks, etc. through the overhead speakers. There’s also a power source to use other devices (like an iPad or salt therapy device, which we purchased separately), as well as the ability to use essential oils for aromatherapy during your sessions. 

The touch screen pad is also super convenient for controlling temperature, time, and lighting.

So What Exactly Is Infrared?

Infrared radiation is an invisible form of electromagnetic energy, and it’s wavelength is longer than that of visible light. Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4935255/

Infrared radiation is categorized according to wavelength:

Near infrared (wavelength of 0.8–1.5 µm)

  • Penetrates the deepest
  • This is the wavelength most often used in procedures to help speed healing and increase cellular repair, due to it’s ability to stimulate ATP production

Middle infrared (wavelength of 1.5–5.6 µm)

  • Helps to bring more oxygen to areas needing healing
  • Can increase heart rate and metabolism

Far infrared (wavelength of 5.6–1000 µm)

  • Close to the wavelength of heat given off by our bodies
  • Said to help increase energy in the body and help in removal of toxins through sweating, urine, and feces
  • Various studies have shown that far infrared has the ability to increase artery blood flow and peripheral blood circulation, improve endothelial cell function, alleviating fatigue and pain,  reduce blood pressure, and promote capillary dilatation Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4935255/

The Clear Light Sanctuary uses a combination of all three to provide the greatest benefits.

In addition to infrared heat, the sauna also surrounds you with medical grade chromotherapy lighting. You have the option to select an individual color or use the “auto” mode to have the unit cycle through the all of the colors. 


Final Thoughts

After completing multiple sessions, I would say that the Jacuzzi line of saunas are well-built, comfortable, and effective. They’re a great option for personal sauna use, and I recommend browsing their website to learn more about the benefits of infrared and the technology that goes into all of their saunas.

Hey guys! Quick question to all the cat owners out there – What’s your least favorite part about owning a cat? Of course the only answer to this question is cleaning the litter!  In fact, I know some people that say the only reason they don’t have a cat is because they don’t want to clean up litter. 🙂 Trust me, I definitely feel you there! But luckily times have changed, and today I’m talking about a company that has literally reinvented the litter box! The company is LUUUP, and their litter box system is really ingenious.

Hey everyone, I’m super excited about today’s post because it includes a giveaway! 😉 (More info below!)

I’ve been searching for a unique wooden watch for a while now; the style is so different from traditional metal watches, it’s really a great way to mix up your outfits.  As I was researching different brands I came across JORD and I was instantly in love!  I really like the color combinations that they offer and their quality is just amazing.  They have so many beautiful women’s watches (and men’s watches!), it was really tough to choose only one style and color, but after spending some time on their site and admiring all of the beautiful designs, I finally settled on the Cora in zebrawood and turquoise.

I recently received my new watch and I want to share a review and some pictures with you guys!

6 Celebrity Scents That Smell Amazing (And Last!)

best celebrity perfumes, best perfumes 2016, best perfumes 2017, top fruity perfumes, fruity celebrity perfumes. best cheap perfumes, cheapest celebrity perfumes, longest lasting perfumes, longest lasting celebrity perfumes

Please tell me I’m not the only one who struggles with finding a perfume that I really love? 🙂 It’s safe to say that I’ve smelled hundreds and actually “like” around 15-20.  Maybe I’m just a little too picky when it comes to perfumes, but if I’m going to spend money on a fragrance I believe it should 1. Smell amazing and 2. LAST.

A few years ago I received Britney Spears’ Fantasy perfume as a gift and I was pretty blown away with how long it lasted.  I mean, this stuff really lasts – like smell it in my hair the next day lasts!  Since this “celebrity scent” lasted longer than my other high end scents, I wondered, would that be the case with other celebrity scents as well?  From that point forward I made it my small mission to figure this question out, and the short answer that I’ve come with is: For me, usually.

So if you’re looking for a long lasting fragrance and you can get over the somewhat cheesy stigma of wearing a celebrity scent, the six below are all scents that I’ve personally tried and found to be long lasting with a great scent.  Added bonus – celebrity scents are usually cheaper than high end designer scents!

20 Stores With Awesome Student Discounts!

Who doesn’t love a good discount? It’s surprising how many college students don’t know about the store discounts that they could be receiving!  Some stores make it obvious that they offer discounts, but others keep it more on the down low.  Most of the time, all you need to do is show a student I.D or sign up with a student e-mail to start receiving your discount.

In addition to getting discounts with your I.D or e-mail, there’s a company called UNiDAYS that makes it even easier to get student discounts. All you have to do is sign up and get verified on their website. On their site you will find a huge list of stores that offer discounts, and some of the discounts are even larger (for limited times) if you go through the UNiDAYS website rather than just the store itself. So this site is definitely worth checking out!

To help you start taking advantage of this awesome student perk, I’ve compiled a list of 20 of my favorite stores and companies that offer great student discounts. Enjoy! Continue reading “20 Stores With Awesome Student Discounts!”

Mountain Biking at Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve

We were itching to take the bikes out this past weekend but it was predicted to rain both days. We had actually never ridden in the rain before, so we thought it would be a fun opportunity to play around and get a little dirty at Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve.  It was actually a great time to go because we were literally the only ones on the trails!  The weather was pretty nice at first, just a light drizzle and only mildly hot.  Eventually the rain started to come down pretty hard and we got rained out, but I was still able to get some pics and show you guys what the trails look like.

A couple of years ago my husband and I were looking for a new outdoor activity and decided to give mountain biking a try. Fast forward to present day and we have now ridden on most of the “top rated” mountain biking trails in Florida, which include Santos in Ocala, Alafia River State Park in Brandon, Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve in Lithia, and Croom in Brooksville.

This weekend we rode the trails in Santos again, so I decided to snap a few pics and provide some information for those who enjoy biking or want to see pictures before giving Santos a try.  Continue reading “A Day of Mountain Biking at Santos Trails in Ocala, Florida”
