Oxygen bars became popular in the late 1990s and continue to be successful in spas and upscale establishments everywhere. Based upon the principle that a higher concentration of oxygen helps to relieve stress and purify our bodies by removing toxins oxygen bars are a must-breathe for health enthusiasts and even just the curious. Some doctors support the use of purer oxygen to help everything from allergies to cancer. For the more pedestrian user, breathing in oxygen with delicious scents added can help bring about a greater calm and increased energy. Oxygen bars are costly and inconvenient for everyday uses if you have to go to a spa or "bar," but now you can purchase a smaller version of the personal oxygen bar for your own home. Here's how.
