Lots of women take a relaxing shower or soak in the tub to ward off stress. The feel of warm water rushing and surrounding the body helps calm the mind down. Add a few drops of your favorite aromatherapy soak or bath oil combo and the shower/soak is heightened into a more satisfying experience. If you do not have time for a good soak, you can still achieve relaxation by using shower steamers. Shower steamers provide an at-home spa experience that is so easy to accomplish. Here are some of our essentials.
- What is a shower steamer exactly?
Answer: The shower steamer, also known as a shower bomb, is a type of bath bomb designed for shower use. The item fizzes and discharges a refreshing, relaxing scent during the shower. It is easy to use—you can place the item on the floor and as soon as it gets in contact with water, the shower steamer then fizzes and emits all essentials oils in the air.
- What is the advantage of shower steamers?
Answer: As mentioned previously, not all of us have the luxury of time to get into a long, calming bath soak. However, you can begin your day with a little boost from a shower steamer. Just put the steamer on the floor close to the drain, allow it to get damp and the fizz it produces will allow the essentials oils that the steamer contains to infuse the shower with pure aromatherapy goodness. Depending on the type of essential oil/s that the steamer comes with, it can help you relax, energize you or unblock a clogged nose.
- How long does a shower steamer last?
Answer: Shower steamers typically last in the shower between 5 to 10 minutes—the time it usually takes for one to finish a shower. The ingredients of the shower steamer react with the water upon contact to discharge the essential oils or scents inside the steamer—thus, the item’s lifespan is pretty much related to the amount of water it touches.
