Easy Shower Melts

Shower steamers are a great way to start or end the day when you are in need of a therapeutic shower for mental alertness or relaxation. Although similar to a bath bomb and works almost like one, they are not exactly used in bath tubs due to the high concentration of essentials oil in shower steamers.

So how exactly do you use them? They are simply placed on the floor of the shower corner where hot water and steam run through it. The shower steamers then melt to give off essentials oil creating aromatherapy vapors. One can inhale the vapors while showering for relaxation or improve mental alertness.

Some benefits of using shower steamers include:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Fight headache and flu
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Aid digestion
  • Boost immune system

Since thousands of years ago, people have been using aromatherapy for both mental and physical health as it promotes stress relief and pain reduction. Today, having a relaxing therapeutic bath is achievable when you can easily make it at home with some of the simplest ingredients.

What you need:

  • 1 cup Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Citric Acid
  • 20 drops Essential Oil
  • 2-3 tablespoon Witch Hazel
  • Silicone mold or cupcake cup
