What is the point of a shower steamer

Seems lately there’s a lot of buzz going around the internet about shower steamers, but what are they? What do they do and what’s all the fuss about? 

Well, they are little fizzing shower treats that can change your whole mood and create a serious vibe in a matter of minutes! Keep reading and I’ll give you the tea!

Shower steamers are handmade with baking soda, citric acid, and either fragrance or essential oils much like bath bombs which is why they are also often called shower bombs, but for the sake of confusion we’ll just stick to shower steamers. 

Shower steamers come in many shapes, colors, and fragrances, but the most common are tablet shaped so they stay on the floor of the shower or bathtub without rolling around. 


So what is the pont of a shower steamer? While you’re showering, the shower and most likely your entire bathroom fills with steam much like a sauna at a spa. When you add a shower steamer to the mix, once they get wet, they fizz and release fragrance that mixes with the steam to create a luxurious and relaxing aromatherapy experience.

Sounds cool, right? They really are!

Depending on the fragrance you choose you can create a unique experience to suit your mood. For instance after a long day you can relax and unwind with the soothing and calming scent of lavender to help you get ready for a good night’s sleep.

During the winter months, or cold season, shower steamers can be used to relieve nasal congestion and soothe and calm sinuses. On the flip side, it you’re anything like me, sometimes you need a little help to get going in the mornings and a regular shower just isn’t enough. For those days a citrus scented shower steamer can be just the pick me up you need to get you up, energized, and ready to take on the day ahead.


There are so many wonderful benefits to using shower steamers, but in order to really appreciate them and just how powerful these little shower treats are, you just have to try them.
