Shower steamers are a new craze taking the self-care world by storm. You may be familiar with the standard eucalyptus bundle that hangs over your shower head, but for many folks, shower steamers are a brand new concept, so let's unpack what they are and why they can be a game changer for your shower!
What are shower steamers?
Let's begin with the basics. Shower steamers are basically bath bombs for the shower. They come in small rounded foil-wrapped packages and release powerful eucalyptus-mint aromas during your shower for up to 25 minutes per steamer, elevating your shower experience. As the heat rises in the shower, the steamers gradually dissolve in the steam, releasing their luscious scents.
What are the benefits of shower steamers?
Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, shower steamers provide numerous anecdotal health benefits. These range from opening up your respiratory tract to improving circulation to detoxifying the air around you. Some people have reported improved sleep and healthier hair and skin due to the eucalyptus-mint shower steamers as well. And of course, the calming scent has been shown to lower stress which leads to a multitude of other health benefits. Not only are shower steamers fun to use, they also have great health benefits for their user that will leave you feeling refreshed!
How do you use shower steamers?
Another great thing about shower steamers is how easy they are to use. When you buy a pack of shower steamers at Self-Care Shower, they come in a pack of 10 which sets you up for 10 incredible showers. When you are ready to use one, simply unwrap a steamer from the foil and place it on the shower floor and turn on the warm water.
You have some level of choice with how aromatic your steamer is and also how long it lasts. For a longer lasting option, place your steamer further from the drain and flow of water. This will also reduce the strength of the eucalyptus-mint scent. You may want to consider this option if you are sensitive to strong odors and want to dilute the intensity of the eucalyptus-mint scent.
If you want a more intense fragrance experience, simply place your steamer closer to the stream of water and/or the drain. Either way will result in a quicker and stronger release of the scent. This way, you can control the intensity of your steamer and customize your shower experience.
Throughout your shower, the steam will release the essential oils in the steamer to radiate throughout the shower. Depending on how close to the stream of water you place the steamer, it will last anywhere from 20-30 minutes. Once the time is up, the steamer will have completely dissolved and the process will be over with no clean up needed!
What Products Can I Pair My Shower Steamer With?
While shower steamers are fabulous on their own, they are also great when paired with other SCS products. Consider bundling your shower steamer into the overall spa bundle complete with steamers, shower affirmation cards, and a 3-in-1 bundle. This makes for a great self-care treat for yourself as well as an opportunity to gift a loved one with an incredible combination of self-care goodies.
The shower steamers also pair well with a self-care workbook that help you work towards a better self-care journey. This digital workbook is exactly what you need to finish out the fourth quarter of the year strong.
However you choose to use your shower steamers, rest assured that they will radically change your showering experience for the better and help you to focus taking care of yourself.
