Sure, a long soak in a clawfoot tub sounds like a dream. But for some of us who live in apartments with roommates (or anywhere we wouldn’t dare touch the tub), showers are the only way to go. That’s why we’re so pumped to find out that shower steamers exist to make all our “me time” aromatherapy dreams come true. Similar to a bath bomb, shower steamers fizz up in warm water and release fragrant essential oils like lavender and eucalyptus. You just place one on the floor when you shower (never put it on your skin) and breathe in deep. Get to scrubbin’, ladies.
1. Bath and Body Works Shower Steamers ($15 for five): Your favorite mall beauty shop just launched their much-anticipated shower bombs, available in essential-oil blends for Sleep, Energy, Focus, Stress Relief, Happiness, and Comfort. So pretty much any daily (or nightly) need you have.
2. HALLU Mermaid Shower Bomb, Sea Salt Citrus Scent ($4): This budget-friendly buy is all you need to transform your shower from ordinary into a colorful mermaid spa. It releases a delicious-smelling citrus and sea salt aroma that will transport you straight to your favorite beach. Don’t worry, it fizzes away after for easy cleanup too.
3. Intimate Bath and Body Shower Bombs ($15): This Maryland-based company may make the largest variety of shower bombs out there. We’re excited about the cucumber melon and peach margarita scents, but who wouldn’t want their shower to smell like their favorite cocktail? They are both therapeutic, right?!
4. Trubeauty Revive Shower Fizzies ($8): These pretty steamers come in three scents: eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint. Our rec? Drop in eucalyptus when you’re feeling stuffed up for easy breathing. Go for peppermint in the morning when you need a burst of energy and lavender when you shower at night to catch the best zzz’s of your life.
