3 Reasons to Use Shower Steamers

Looking for a way to have an aromatic experience, but don't have time for a bath? Shower steamers are the perfect solution. They provide the therapeutic benefits of essential oils, but in half the time of a bath. Shower steamers are also great for clearing out your sinuses, detoxing and clarifying your skin, and creating a spa experience at home.

What are shower steamers?

Shower steamers are tablets that dissolve in water to create an aromatic steam. They are made with menthol crystals and essential oils to provide a true aromatherapy experience in your shower.

How do I use a shower steamer?

To use a shower steamer, simply place one tablet at the foot of your shower or hang it from your faucet while ensuring it comes into contact with your shower water. As the tablet gets wet it dissolves and releases essential oils into the hot shower steam. Breathe deeply and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the essential oils and menthol crystals. 

Note: Do not use a shower steamer as a bath bomb.

3 Reasons to try shower steamers

1) Shower steamers are practical

While a warm bath in great, not everyone likes baths, has time for a bath, or even has a bathtub (I only have a shower stall). For these reasons, shower steamers are a practical way to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of essential oils in your shower. They slowly release their scent and because of their larger size, can last longer than a one & done bath bomb.

2) Steaming with essential oils has so many benefits

Their spa-like aroma doesn't just perfume your bathroom. The ingredients (combined with steam) also have health and beauty benefits.

Here's a list of steamers that will be available in the shop. 

Breathe – Made with Ravintsara, Eucalyptus, Lemon, Laurel Leaf, Peppermint & Cardamom essential oils, this steamer combined with menthol crystals is intensely clearing, cooling, and invigorating. Eucalyptus is probably the most popular essential oil for saunas and steam rooms to open respiratory pathways and promoting clear breathing. 

Dream – A perfectly aromatic blend of Lavender, Mandarin, Geranium, Marjoram Sweet, Frankincense, Palmarosa, Ylang Ylang essential oils, makes this steamer great for anyone looking to relax before heading into bed. 

Focus - Grapefruit, Bergamot, Basil & Lemon essential oils to enhance mental focus. Feeling your mind is running all over the place instead of where you need it to be? These aromatic blend from these essential oils may be just what you need.

These essential oil blend boost your mood, enhance feelings of relaxation, relieve stress, clear nasal congestion, and reduce sinus inflammation, improving overall respiratory health.

3) Skin benefits of shower steamers

Steam carries volatile essential oils to the skin. Shower steaming can moisturize skin, unclog pores, soften sebum, increase circulation, and reduce congestion that often causes redness and puffy eyes.

Also, the heat increases sweating, which helps detoxify skin and remove pollutants.


So what are you waiting for? Whether you are looking to relax, regain focus or put some pep in your step, using the aromatherapy benefits of a shower steamer is just what you need.
