Ojai Hot Springs

Sulphur Hot Springs

Ojai Hot Springs – Sulphur Hot Springs – Mineral Hot Springs

The natural Ojai hot springs (even some secret sulphur hot springs and mineral hot springs), off the beaten path (near the lake), down a trail, and over a bunch of rocks, are some of Ojai’s best-kept secrets.  The pools mix with the river so there’s always a constant flow of fresh clean water.  Temperature is normally a comfortable 100-105 degrees and provides a great space for meditating as well as offering an alternative therapy cure for a variety of ailments.

What natural elements are found at sulphur hot springs

Because the heated water found in the hot springs hold a greater amount of dissolved solids, they often have a very high mineral content and can contain elements such as calcium, lithium, radium, and sulphur (especially in the sulphur hot springs).

With regard to sulphur, it is well known that this element is a naturally occurring mineral that is present close to hot springs and volcanic craters. What about the rotten egg smell?  The foul smell is caused by sulphur dioxide gas escaping into the air.

Benefits of sulphur hot springs

For hundreds of years, sulphur has been used medicinally and is found in every cell of the body.  Making up approximately 25% of a person’s body weight, sulphur is known as nature’s beauty mineral as it helps to manufacture collagen.

The mineral can be used to treat itchy rashes found with eczema and can also help protect the body against environmental toxins. Many people have found pain relief from conditions such as arthritis by taking a bath in naturally occurring sulphur hot springs.

On a side note, Ojai is an amazing place.  If you’ve never experienced it, you owe yourself a trip.  While the sulphur hot springs are amazing and can offer an alternative therapy to a variety of conditions, the town is quaint and the locals are great!

*PLEASE NOTE: At the time this video was taken we were unaware that the hot springs are located on private property. Since then, the owners have asked us to keep the location of the sulphur hot springs private.

    I’ve lived in Ojai for 25 years and this place is now destroyed because of non-locals abusing it. I can’t go here anymore because it’s always packed with obnoxious kids and it’s just plain filthy. It’s ruined.

    The last few times I’ve gone to the hot springs and swimming holes, I’ve come back up with bags of trash, broken glass, even used baby diapers.

    DO NOT COME HERE. STOP ASKING FOR DIRECTIONS. WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE.

    And if you somehow decide it’s ok to trespass, DON’T LEAVE YOUR FUCKING TRASH.

    Looks like Jay doesn’t want anyone looking for the springs LOL sounds like a great place to visit – sure it wouldn’t be too tough to find if you dug deep enough and kept doing research.

    What is the big deal about these hot springs? They are not really all that. I’ve had the chance to visit many hot springs in different states, and other countries. No big deal here…. better go to Mexico, Japan or Guatemala; they have nice hot springs, cheap, big, and the owners are not obsessed to keep them as a secret.

    I can’t believe the fact about hot springs! I grew up in a small island with nine volcanoes in it. That means, my home place had hot springs but there’s nothing wrong from it, no negative effects and such no big deal!
