Oxygen Bar in Delhi Replenishing People From Air Pollution Menace
As the air pollution in the national capital of India is taking a toll on the health of the citizens, Oxy Pure – an oxygen bar in Saket, is providing fresh air with an array of refreshing fragrances.
The brainchild of 26-year-old Aryavir Kumar and 25-year-old Margarita Kuritsyna, the bar was launched four months ago. Kumar had come across this kind of oxygen bar at The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas and thought that Delhi could benefit from such an innovation amidst this crisis.
The customers strap a cannula under their nostrils through which they inhale the oxygenated air infused with a fragrance of their preference – peppermint, cinnamon, lavender, orange, eucalyptus, spearmint, and lemongrass. The oxygen delivered is generated by an oxygen concentrating machine, which purifies the air around and supplies it to the customers through the cannula.
Each session at Oxy pure lasts until 15 minutes. The cost starts from Rs 299 and can go up to Rs 499. Although the therapy does not cure any diseases, it helps the customers to relax. Oxy Pure provides portable oxygen cans as well as ones that are priced at Rs 650 each. These oxygen cans are easy to carry and work like an inhaler.
The results mostly depend on the choice of essential oil. Spearmint relaxes the muscles, peppermint helps eliminate nausea, and vanilla calms the mind. Eucalyptus clears blocked sinuses and soothes sore throats.
Given the hazardous Delhi air, opening up an oxygen bar is certainly a good business idea. Though many people have criticized the owner and accused him of selling air, several others feel that the therapy is really helpful to relax.
Despite all the criticism, Kumar is happy that people are getting relief amidst the thick shroud of toxic smog in Delhi. The second branch of the bar is scheduled to be launched at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, Terminal 3, this week.
