Aromatherapy benefits in the shower

Aromatherapy in the bath or shower is a great way to rejuvenate and relax your skin. Aromatherapy is a practice that uses essential oils to promote relaxation and wellness. Aromatherapy benefits include reduced stress and improved skin health.

Aromatherapy is used to promote relaxation and healing for centuries. Essential oils are extracted from plants and used in the practice.

Aromatherapy Shower Steamers


You can either make your own Shower Steamers, or buy them in the store. It’s believed that shower steamers are a great way to get you going in the morning, or even help with congestion. Baking soda and essential oil can be used to make your own. Online DIY recipes are available.

Shower steamers work by letting them sink to the floor, slightly away from the flow of water. Then you breathe deeply while they dissolve. Many shower steamers suggest peppermint, since they are designed to reduce congestion. If you make your own, you can use any essential oils you like.

Use essential oils in the shower

Aromatherapy can be easily accessed by using essential oils in your shower. When people think of essential oils in the bathroom, they tend to picture the bathtub.

essential oil can also be used in the shower for those without bathtubs, or who prefer to shower. It is easy to create an aromatherapy environment and soothe the skin without a bath tub.

If you don’t want to use a steamer, then a washcloth or cotton ball will work. Add a few drops to your body wash or shampoo.

Choose the right oils for the desired effect. Avoid using essential oils that are stimulating or calming before going to sleep.

Apply a skin-care oil to your damp skin after showering. After getting out of the bath, apply oil, such as sweet almond or apricot kernel, to your damp skin. As mentioned above, these oils are excellent carrier oils for essential oil.
