For thousands of years humans have used essential oils in steam rooms and saunas for stress relief and recovery. The soothing scent of eucalyptus and peppermint oil has been used for centuries to help individuals reduce stress, enhance rest and encourage relaxation. A shower steamer is made using these same types of essential oils and has the same effect as they dissolve in your shower.
A shower steamer is basically a bath bomb for your shower. It fizzles, bubbles and releases an amazing scent while you shower but won’t require you to take out a loan to pay for your water bill. They’re super easy to use too – simply place one somewhere in your shower, and as water hits it, it fizzles and releases an amazing mix of essential oil scents into the air. The steamer portion of the name comes from the fact that the steam and humidity generated from a hot shower helps to enhance the aroma of the essential oils in the air.
