What is a shower steamer? Put a steamer in the shower at neck or face level. If that isn’t an option place on the floor away from the drain. Water and steam activate the steamer and release its essential oils. Each oil has a different medicinal property. Our handmade Lavender & Citrus mix are calming, eases anxiety & refreshing morning shower essence. A shower steamer lasts between 1-2 showers depending on the duration of your shower and where you place it.
