How to Add Aromatherapy to Your Shower Experience

Shower aromatherapy is not a new practice, but if it is new to you, it can transform your shower into an enjoyable experience that goes well beyond just relaxing. It can also be a great alternative to a trip to the spa. 

The use of aromatherapy inspires different emotions or sensations by inhaling the different natural smells. In addition, aromatherapy has become more popular in the medical community because it can help with a wide range of health issues and can be an easy way to de-stress.

Many people find that adding essential oils into their daily routine can help to better their lives naturally. Since it can sometimes be hard to find the time for a soothing aromatherapy session, using essential oils in the shower is an alternative.

There are so many ways to use essential oils for aromatherapy for the shower while getting ready for the day or putting the day behind you that will have a positive effect on you.

6 Ways to Add Aromatherapy to the Shower

Shower Melts

This is a shower version of bath bombs that will make your shower feel more luxurious. Also known as shower steamers, fizzies, or soothers, that are sure to pack a serious punch of in-shower aromatherapy.

Eucalyptus Bundles or Shower Bouquets

Hanging eucalyptus or different botanicals, such as lavender, peppermint, and chamomile, from your shower head, will seep out the essential oils in the leaves and release a refreshing fragrance that will custom blend of natural oils to make you feel any way you want. For example, eucalyptus will soothe your respiratory system and invigorate your senses, whereas lavender and chamomile can create a wind-down environment. 

Essential Oil Drops

Using just a few drops of essential oil in the shower can be a revitalizing spa-like experience. It’s like a DIY diffuser but in the shower. Simply place a few drops of essential oil on the shower floor in the corners where the water flow is minimal. Turn on your delta shower head for the oil to vaporize slowly from the warm water rather than wash down the drain. You can even add more essential oil drops throughout your rinse to enjoy the experience longer. 

Shower Sprays

For people on the go, a shower spray would be the quicker choice for a spa-like experience. Just spray 2-3 times into the shower, but away from the face, to diffuse the aroma and start your day off feeling grounded.

Citrus Peels

You can reuse citrus peels, such as lemon or lime, as aromatherapy in the shower by storing the peels in a freezer and pulling out a few as needed. Once your turn the hot water on, place the frozen peels on the bottom of the shower floor to defrost and release their powerful scents to help elevate your mood and awaken your senses.

Diffuse Essential Oils

If you are looking to extend your aromatherapy experience, an essential oil diffuser is the answer. Simply place the diffuser in the bathroom, add your desired oils, turn it on, and let it diffuse a little bit before hopping into the shower. This will ensure the oils have time to spread throughout the bathroom. 

Aromatherapy for the shower is the perfect spa-like environment. As the warm water vapor helps to open your airways to better receive all the benefits, your health and mental state can improve.
