An oxygen bar is a free-standing bar which people sit or stand at to breathe over 90% pure oxygen and aromatherapy from a disposable nasal cannula (AKA nose hose). These modular bars can service anywhere from one to 18 people simultaneously, and they are usually manned by one or two bartender/technicians.
The oxygen is not kept under pressure nor is it administered from a tank. If anyone offers this service to you with an oxygen tank in the U.S. they are breaking the law! (That would be considered “medical” oxygen and is violating FDA regulations.) Our oxygen is produced by oxygen concentrators (AKA oxygen generators) which take the air that we breathe everyday and separates the nitrogen from this ambient air with a molecular filter. Most of the nitrogen is expelled during this cycle and the oxygen is concentrated and pushed out of the machine through a tube which is attached to the Aromarizers (AKA defusers) which sit on top of the bar. It is there that the oxy-bartender/technician controls the flow of the oxygen to the individual bottles that hold water and the all-natural, essential, therapeutic grade aromas. In turn, the bottles bubble when turned on, and oxygen is forced thought the other opening of the bottle which has another open ended tube on it. It is there that the bar patrons connect the nasal cannulas while breathing normally.
*Note: Oxygen is a very dry gas and needs to be “humidified” and this is one of the two reasons why it is passed through the water. The other reason is to have it pick up the pleasant scent.
Visitors to our bar can choose from 12 of these different scents and switch to any of them at any given time during their session. For optimum benefits, a session at the bar should last from 10 to 15 minutes. When at a trade show, expo, or convention, a 2 to 5 minute session is more desirable in order to keep the flow of people moving. Bar patrons can choose from our most popular flavors which are Eucalyptus, Gardenia, Peppermint, Lavender, Lemon grass, Vanilla, Cherry, Spearmint, Orange, Almond, Cinnamon and Wintergreen.
*Note: All that is needed at the event location is a standard 110V 60HZ electrical outlet and a 7′ by 4′ footprint area (without bar stools) and a 9′ by 6′ area the client cares to supply bar stools.
*Note: Stools are discretionary and are left up to the decision of the client. It is customary for a stool to be left behind the bar for the bartender/technician to sit on.
