Many of us have experienced the unbridled joy of a relaxing aromatherapy session in a spa steam room. Of course, sadly, we don’t always have the time to spend hours lounging at the spa, or even the money to keep putting towards sessions. That doesn’t mean your relaxation time has to stop, however. There are plenty of ways for you to recreate the experience at home so that you can enjoy that same feeling of overwhelming calm again and again.
The first thing you can do is purchase a steam shower. They tend to be fully enclosed with a roof in order to capture the steam and help release the oils, keeping the scent and the beneficial results locked in tight with you. Some even come with bath-like bases so that they can be partially filled for an added bathing experience.
After all, if you add a little extra oil to the water in the base you can soak in it and really let the oil get into your skin, helping to relieve muscle pains and tension. The steam shower can help you to recreate the spa in your own home, and doesn’t cost a great deal more than purchasing a general shower unit. You can look at some here.
Of course, not everyone wants to invest in a whole new shower, and you may not want to spend the money on a whole new shower unit. There is a way to recreate the aromatherapy experience in your regular shower. All you need is some essential oils and a small hand towel. To start the homemade experience, first spray the inside of your shower doors/walls with cold water. After that, flick a few drops of your chosen essential oils on the inside walls of the shower unit. Then get the hand towel, lightly soak it, roll it up, and lightly sprinkle some oils on it. Following that, place it at head height in the unit. Then turn your shower on and let it get to the hottest temperature it can (don’t step in yet) so that the steam starts to rise. Once you see it rising, adjust the shower to your ideal temperature and hop in. This will recreate a wonderful and relaxing aromatherapy atmosphere for you to enjoy.
If the idea of a homemade steam shower doesn’t appeal to you either, then there is an even easier way of recreating the experience. You can buy little clip on oil droppers from many websites (including Amazon). These work by clipping onto your shower head and releasing the occasional drop of oil into the water stream. This way, while you are showering the oils are being released and mixing with the steam from the shower, thus creating a steamy and beautifully scented atmosphere. These drippers give the same aromatherapy treatment and effect as either buying or creating your own steam shower at home, and for an excellent price.
So whether you have a lot or a little to spend, there is definitely a way for you to recreate the aromatic atmosphere found in the aromatherapy steam room at your local spa. All of this can be done for an excellent price and improve your daily showering experience.
