When you've got the sniffles, a hot shower or bath is often the perfect antidote, thanks to the sinus-opening powers of the steam produced. And as luscious as a long soak in a bath full of essential oils can be, there's a myriad of reasons why a bath might not be possible.
Enter Shower Steamers!
Akin to their more widely-used cousin the bath bomb, shower steamers are a perfect alternative for those who don’t have the time to soak, but who still want the benefit of a steamy soak.
Enhance the effects of the steam by adding one of our Eucalyptus Mint Shower Steamers. Eucalyptus globulus essential oil is known to be helpful for upper respiratory complaints such as congestion, coughing and sinus infections and may also act as an immune stimulant. Peppermint essential oil is a useful remedy for headaches, congestion and sore throat. Together, these two oils disperse into the steam vapour in your shower, allowing for deep inhalation and almost immediate delivery of their benefits.
- How to Use
All you need to enjoy a shower steamer is to place one (or a few, if you're feeling fancy) on the floor of your shower away from the direct stream of water and turn on the water to your preferred temperature (warmer is better). The shower steam will soon release the scented oils into the air; breathe deeply and relax.
Sodium bicarbonate (Baking soda), Citric acid, Hammamelis Virginiana (Witch hazel) water, Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus) oil, Mentha piperita (Peppermint) oil.
Choose from a single steamer (large - 50 g each) or a glass jar of 11 (30 g each)!
