Shower steamers are very similar to bath bombs, typically you use more essential oils and use menthol crystals to enhance a strong fragrance, especially comforting to help ease the congestion associate with sinus problems, colds, flu or allergies. The vapor action of the menthol crystals will help relieve congestion by open up your sinuses and help you breathe easier.
Set your shower to the hottest you can comfortable shower in, Get it steamy! Briefly wet the shower steamers until it is bubbling and set on the shower floor. Set it out of the direct steam of water. You can sprinkle a little bit on the steamer to get it started, but it will fizz away too quickly if you put it directly under the water stream.
Our shower steamers ingredients are:
Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), citric acid, corn starch, tapioca starch, white kaolin clay, menthol crystals, essential oils, colorants. Unlike bath bombs, we don’t put oil or a melted butter in them to help them hold together, or you’ll end up with a slippery shower floor. Some are loaded with x-strength menthol crystals there are sure to create an invigorating aromatherapy experience!
Purpose of each ingredient:
Baking soda reacts with the citric acid to create fizz.
Citric acid provides the fizz in the shower/tub
Corn Starch or Clay are binding agents prevent the shower tablet not dissolve as quickly
Our shower steamers are approx. 1.05 oz. each, shrink-wrapped to preserve freshness. These are handmade in in small batches for better quality, color and weight may vary slightly. Each tablet is good for at least one long 10 minutes shower. Store in an airtight container to prevent premature fizzing.
