    The Power of Shower Steamers: A Comprehensive Guide

    In the realm of self-care, there's a rising star that's quickly gaining popularity: shower steamers. Whether you are thinking of adding it to your bedtime end of day routine or are looking for morning habits to start the day on the right note, we think you should consider shower steamers. Also known as shower bombs, shower tabs, aromatherapy tabs, or shower fizzies, these small, aromatic wonders are revolutionizing the way we experience showers. If you're wondering what shower steamers are and why they're becoming a staple in bathrooms around the world, you've come to the right place. In this guide, we'll delve into everything you need to know about shower steamers, from their benefits to how to use them effectively.

    Our Shower Steamers have essential oils that are release in the shower for aromatherapy. John's Hopkins Medicine describes essential oils as "plant extracts. They're made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce fragrance. It can take several pounds of a plant to produce a single bottle of essential oil. In addition to creating scent, essential oils perform other functions in plants, too."

    → What Are Shower Steamers? 

    Shower steamers are small, solid tablets made from a combination of essential oils, baking soda, citric acid, and other nourishing ingredients. When placed in the corner of your shower, away from direct water flow, these tablets dissolve gradually, releasing aromatic vapors that transform your shower into a spa-like experience. The steam generated by the shower activates the essential oils, filling the air with therapeutic fragrances that can uplift your mood, soothe your senses, and provide numerous health benefits.

    → Benefits of Shower Steamers

    1. Aromatherapy: One of the primary benefits of shower steamers is their ability to deliver the benefits of aromatherapy directly to your shower. Whether you prefer the invigorating aroma of eucalyptus, or the refreshing fragrance of menthol (or both, as in our case!), there's a shower steamer tailored to your preferences. Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to promote relaxation, relieve stress, and enhance overall well-being. Medical News Today also discusses how inhalation of oils in a steam environment can provide a pleasant smell and enhanced experience but also "aromatherapy oils can provide respiratory disinfection, decongestant, and psychological benefits."

    1. Respiratory Relief: Steam shower units infused with menthol or eucalyptus can help alleviate congestion and respiratory discomfort. The warm steam opens up your nasal passages and sinuses, making it easier to breathe and providing relief from symptoms of colds, allergies, and sinus congestion.
    1. Skin Nourishment: Many shower steamers are formulated with skin-nourishing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E. As the steam fills the air, these ingredients hydrate and moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling soft, smooth, and rejuvenated. Our Shower Aromatherapy Tablets have coconut oil! Healthline disusses the benefits of coconut oil for skin, declaring: "In addition to its effects on acne and inflammation, applying coconut oil to your skin can also help keep it hydrated. One study in patients with mild to moderately dry skin compared the effects of coconut oil to mineral oil, a type of oil made from petroleum that’s often used to treat dry skin. The two-week study found that coconut oil significantly improved skin hydration and was just as effective as mineral oil (16Trusted Source)."
    1. Mood Enhancement: The power of scent is undeniable when it comes to influencing mood. Shower steamers infused with uplifting essential oils can boost your mood, increase energy levels, and promote a sense of well-being. Whether you need a pick-me-up in the morning or a way to unwind after a long day, aromatherapy shower steamers have you covered. Medical News Today describes exactly how aromatherapy reacts to create mood enhancement, assistance with stress, and other positive effects, stating: "As the molecules reach the brain, they affect limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress, and hormone balance. In this way, essential oils can have a subtle, yet holistic effect on the body."
    1. Convenience and Versatility: Shower steamers offer a convenient alternative to traditional bath bombs, especially for those who prefer showers over baths or don't have access to a bathtub. They're easy to use and require no special equipment—simply place them on the shower floor and let the steam work its magic. Additionally, shower steamers come in a wide range of scents and formulations, making it easy to find the perfect match for your preferences and needs.
    2. Relief & Assistance for Conditions: Essential oils and aromatherapy have been known to possibly assist with conditions like Anxiety, Depression, Nausea, Insomnia, Low appetite, and Dry mouth according to Hopkins Medicine. Although there isn't hard evidence and every condition or health issue should be monitored by a doctor, incorporating some self-care and wellness. Healthline also highlights the increased recognition of aromatherapy as a practice for health and wellbeing: "Aromatherapy is thought of as both an art and a science. Recently, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of science and medicine."

    How to Use Shower Steamers

    Using shower steamers is simple and straightforward: 

    1. Place the Steamer: Before turning on the shower, place the shower steamer on the floor of your shower, preferably in a corner where it won't be directly hit by the water stream.
    1. Activate the Steam: Start the shower and adjust the water temperature to your liking. As the steam fills the shower enclosure, the shower steamer will begin to dissolve, releasing its aromatic vapors into the air.
    1. Enjoy the Experience: Step into the steam-filled shower and take deep breaths to fully immerse yourself in the aromatherapy experience. Allow the fragrant steam to envelop you, soothing your senses and rejuvenating your mind and body.
    1. Dispose of the Residue/Powder: Once the shower steamer has completely dissolved, simply rinse away any residue left on the shower floor.


    Shower steamers are a simple yet effective way to elevate your shower routine and enhance your overall well-being. From their aromatic benefits to their therapeutic properties, shower steamers offer a multitude of advantages for both body and mind. Whether you're seeking relaxation, respiratory relief, or mood enhancement, there's a shower steamer out there waiting to transform your shower into a luxurious spa retreat. So why wait? Treat yourself to the rejuvenating experience of shower steamers and unlock the power of aromatherapy in your daily routine.
