I can’t describe how incredible the feeling you get after a good soak in some mineral hot springs. After my trip to Bagby Hot Springs this last weekend, I felt like with the cold season setting in right now in Oregon, this would be a good time to share an excellent source for pretty much every known Oregon Hot Springs!

The following is 46 hot springs in Oregon courtesy of Soak Oregon, with links included to the website soakoregon.com. We really are blessed to live in such an amazing state, where you don’t have to drive too far to enjoy one of the most relaxing getaways ever! I’ve personally only visited a handful of these places, and can’t wait to see more.

Please note that not all of the hot springs listed in Oregon at this site are public land, as some of them are on private land and we recommend doing your research before going! With that said, That Oregon Life utilizes and encourages “Leave No Trace” Principles. Always be respectful to others and mother nature and do NOT leave your garbage behind.

Benefits of Sulfur in Hot Springs Water (from middleearthcr.com)

Sulfur is a naturally occurring mineral that is found primarily near hot springs and volcanic craters. Sulfur has a distinct smell which is caused by sulfur dioxide gas escaping into the air. Sulfur is part of the chemical structure of three different amino acids (the building blocks that make up protein) — namely, cystine, cysteine, and methionine. Sulfur works with vitamins B1 (thiamine), B5 (pantothenic

acid), and H (biotin) to promote metabolism and communication between nerve cells.

Approximately 0.25 percent of your total body weight is sulfur one of the most plentiful minerals in the body. It is most concentrated in keratin, which gives you strong hair, nails, and skin. It is known as “nature’s beauty mineral” because your body needs it to manufacture collagen, which keeps your skin elastic, beautiful, and young looking. Read more here
