Shower Steamers: 10 Minutes a Day to Wellness (to 30 mins)
Showers have long been viewed as a quick act of convenience, something to check off the to-do list and get on with the day (or end it). But what if they could be transformed into an enjoyable and rejuvenating experience?
Enter shower steamers—small, fizzy delights that transform your daily shower into a spa-like oasis.
Picture this: You've just arrived home after a long, stressful day full of unexpected setbacks (traffic was crazy, not to mention the long line at the grocery store).
You step into the shower, feeling frazzled and stressed. But after just 10 minutes in the shower with one shower steamer, your entire mood changes.
As the steamer dissolves, it releases an invigorating blend of essential oils, filling the air with an uplifting aroma that transports you into a place of relaxation and peace by:
- Relieving stress and anxiety
- Providing relief from sinus congestion
- Soothing aches and pains
The warm water combines with the steam to create a steam room-like effect, enveloping you in a cocoon of soothing comfort. You leave the shower feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Welcome to the world of shower steamers—where a quick duty becomes an enjoyable escape.
How Do Shower Steamers Work?
Shower steamers are designed to release a burst of aroma when exposed to the humidity of a shower. When wet, they bubble up and release tiny, steam-filled pockets of oil, which are dispersed into the air.
Heat activates the oils, causing them to vaporize and spread throughout the bathroom. The steam from the shower helps to distribute the aroma, enveloping you with a soothing feeling of floating on the clouds.
Here’s how to use a shower steamer.
- Turn on the shower and let it get all nice and steamy.
- Place the shower steamer tablet on the floor of your bathroom, away from the direct stream of water.
- Splash water on the tablet to activate it and let the essential oils work their magic.
- Breathe deep and enjoy your shower!
Pro Tip: Placing your shower steamer tablet on a ledge, or at the opposite end of your shower head, allows you to control how much it dissolves. This prolongs its life span, making it usable for multiple showers instead of just one.
PurelifeBiotics has a wide range of shower steamers with three options to cater to different scent preferences, including:
- Citrus: Provides a refreshing and uplifting aroma of grapefruit, oranges, and tangerine, perfect for a morning shower
- Flowers: Includes lavender, which offers a calming and soothing scent, great for winding down before bed
- Wood & Greens: Contains the invigorating oils of eucalyptus and peppermint, which help clear the mind and are ideal for a midday shower boost
But it's not just about the delightful scents, the benefits of shower steamers extend far beyond just the sensory experience. Spending 10 minutes (or 30 minutes) inhaling essential oils in a humid environment contributes to improved overall wellness.
1 - Relieve Cold and Flu Symptoms Naturally With Aromatherapy
Our luxury Wood & Greens Shower Steamers contain a cool minty blend of peppermint, eucalyptus, and menthol. These active ingredients can help relieve:
- Sinus congestion
- Sore throat
Eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils have natural decongestant properties. Inhaling their soothing aromas for just 10 minutes in a warm and moist environment blasts your sinuses and clears any congestion.
These essential oils also have anti-inflammatory properties that provide soothing relief for a sore throat.
In addition, peppermint, eucalyptus, and menthol are natural expectorants that help to reduce mucus production, making it easier to expel mucus from the respiratory tract. Menthol also has antitussive effects, which means it can suppress a cough.
To help your body reap these benefits of menthol, we infuse all our shower steamers with menthol. So the next time you’re feeling under the weather, turn your shower into a healing sanctuary with our PurelifeBiotics Shower Steamers.
2 - Take a Deep Breath and Improve Your Respiratory Health
Inhaling essential oils can help alleviate allergy symptoms such as sneezing and itching. Essential oils have natural anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation in your nasal passages, providing relief from allergies.
Additionally, essential oils have anti-histamine and anti-bacterial properties that help soothe and calm your airways, making breathing easier. This can also provide relief from asthmatic symptoms.
Some of the most effective essential oils for allergies and asthmatic symptoms include:
- Peppermint oil
- Lavender oil
- Tea tree oil
- Lemon oil
- Eucalyptus oil
You’re sure to find a shower steamer infused with any of these essential oils in our collection at PurelifeBiotics.

3 - Transform Your Shower Into a Relaxation Haven
Taking a 10 to 30-minute shower with a steamer is the perfect escape from the daily grind and can help you unwind after a long day.
The combination of warm steam and essential oils creates a spa-like experience right in your own shower, which promotes feelings of relaxation.
In addition, essential oils, such as lavender, have natural calming properties that help ease anxiety. The uplifting aroma of lavender also helps clear the mind, allowing for a meditative state.
This promotes deeper breathing, which helps you relax your tense muscles and melts away all the stress of the day.
Lavender also has natural sedative effects that help with insomnia, so you can slide into sleep easily after a long, busy day.
4 - Unlock Radiant Skin and Luxurious Hair
Essential oils in shower steamers can improve the health of your skin and hair. The moist heat of a hot shower opens your skin pores, allowing them to absorb essential oils. Open skin pores are more receptive and absorb oils more easily than closed pores.
Here’s how certain oils can enhance your hair and skin’s health:
- Lavender oil: Has antibacterial properties that help lessen acne appearance and promote clear, healthy skin
- Tea tree oil: Unblocks hair follicles, stimulates hair growth, moisturizes the skin, and prevents skin breakouts thanks to its antibacterial and antimicrobial effects
- Lemon oil: Its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals on your skin, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Peppermint oil: Increases blood circulation in the scalp, promoting hair growth and reduces inflammation caused by some skin conditions like eczema
5 - Recharge Your Energy and Improve Your Mood
Take a deep breath of our refreshing citrus aromas and boost your spirits and energy levels.
Your 10-minute morning shower will become the ultimate pick-me-up with our menthol-infused grapefruit, orange, and tangerine shower steamers.
Research has shown citrusy scents, including those of lemon, orange, and grapefruit, have a positive effect on mood, boost energy levels and increase alertness.
Inhaling essential oils additionally helps with depression. A study on the effects of essential oils in mood disorders showed that inhaling oils such as lavender and bergamot significantly reduced symptoms of depression.
Citrus aromas also help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, which can contribute to depression.

6 - Experience Improved Physical Performance
Shower steamers provide a soothing environment that helps reduce stress and fatigue, enhancing physical performance.
10 to 30 minutes of increased humidity in a shower, coupled with aromatherapy, increases blood circulation and eases muscle tension. This is because improved blood flow increases the removal rate of metabolic waste, reducing soreness and shortening recovery time.
Increased blood flow also facilitates the faster delivery of nutrients, enhancing flexibility and range of motion.
In addition, the aromatherapy effects of oils like lavender and eucalyptus improve focus, mental clarity, and mood, further boosting physical performance.
Inhaling steam infused with essential oils also opens airways and improves lung capacity. This means athletes can exercise for longer periods with improved oxygen intake and utilization.
7 - Soothe Your Headaches With the Relaxing Power of Shower Steamers
Shower steamers provide all the benefits of aromatherapy, including easing tension headaches and migraines by:
- Calming and relaxing your body, thereby reducing stress and anxiety, which might cause migraines
- Opening up nasal passages and providing relief from headaches caused by sinus congestion
- Improving blood circulation, which boosts overall brain function and reduces the severity of a headache
Lavender, eucalyptus, and peppermint oils have been shown to soothe and relax the body, thus alleviating headaches.
8 - Uncover the Sleep-Enhancing Magic of Shower Steamers
Shower steamers are a simple yet natural way to improve sleep and combat sleep-related problems.
Steam inhalation during a shower melts all the tension and stress away. This is beneficial before bedtime, as a relaxed body and mind slip into sleep more easily.
The therapeutic effects of essential oils, such as lavender and eucalyptus, also help promote deep, restful sleep. Spending just 10 minutes in a spa-like atmosphere before bed relaxes your body and signals it's time to rest.
For those who suffer from sleep apnea, shower steamers can be absolute lifesavers. By opening up airways and improving lung capacity, shower steamers make it easier to breathe and sleep peacefully through the night.
