What is a Mobile Oxygen Bar?
An oxygen bar offers a safe way to breathe in non-medical scented oxygen that will leave you feeling full of energy, refreshed, and with a heightened sense of concentration. It is a free-standing bar that people sit at that offers non-medical oxygen mixed with various aromatherapy scents. The air we breathe contains about 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen. Other gases like carbon dioxide, argon, and trace gases make up the remaining 1%. The oxygen bar delivers between 90% and 92% oxygen at 3 liters per minute per person, allowing you to breathe 4 to 5 times the normal amount of oxygen. Oxygen bars uplift and refresh you as well as detoxify, giving you an overall good feeling and allows you to get your 2nd wind.

Where do you get the oxygen?
The oxygen comes from completely self-contained machines called oxygen concentrators (non-medical). These non-medical concentrators use a technology called PSA (Pressure Awning Absorption), a NASA created technology that filters out nitrogen, argon, and other trace gases from the ambient air, increasing the oxygen content from 21% to roughly 90% purity. The oxygen from the concentrators is then delivered to an Infusor. The oxygen is "humidified" in the infusor as it passes through the water and picks up the aromatherapy scent which is controlled by the user. **The oxygen is not kept under pressure nor is it administered from a tank, it is non-medical grade.
What are the aromas made of?
