A paraffin spa is a unique way to ease arthritis and tendinitis pain and/or improve the health of your skin, especially the hands, feet and elbows. It provides intensive moisture therapy to nourish the skin and penetrating heat to soothe aching joints, relax stiff muscles and relieve work-weary hands. A paraffin wax bath takes advantage of paraffin's ability to retain heat as it melts and then transfer that heat to the core of the area you want to treat. When you dip your hand, foot, or other area into the paraffin spa, the paraffin that surrounds the dipped area quickly solidifies into a comforting coating. At the same time, the heat from the paraffin helps opens pores in the skin and increases circulation, leaving skin softened and more radiant.
Home wax baths make it possible to get a spa or salon treatment at home. A home wax spa will work in a similar fashion, melting wax quickly and keeping it at the right temperature. When choosing a paraffin spa, consider how large you want the “tub” to be. The Deluxe Paraffin Wax Bath Spa With Peach Scented Wax, for instance, is generously sized to comfortably accommodate feet as large as a man's size 12 and comes with 6 lb of peach-scented, anti-microbial wax.
Be sure that paraffin wax refills are available for the model you buy. Paraffin Wax Refills By Therabath are premium FDA Food Grade paraffin wax specially formulated to provide maximum therapeutic effect. The wax builds thick pliable layers that form an easy-to-remove “glove,” leaving no sticky or greasy residue. Best of all, it can be used in any paraffin spa bath. Each carton contains 6 individually wrapped 1 lb packages of wax beads, available in wintergreen scent or unscented/colorant free.
Some accessories you might find helpful are the Paraffin Bath Thermometer that measures temperatures in the range from 0 degrees to 220 degrees F and the Paraffin Wax Bath Brush that allows you to “paint on” paraffin, great for reaching areas that are hard to dip into the paraffin wax spa itself. There might even be a stand  to accommodate the model you buy so that it doesn’t take up any counter space.
