Steam showers are heavenly. They really are. You get all the healthful, spa-like benefits right in your very own home. What could be more relaxing than that? Ok, a trip to some pristine Mediterranean beach would do it, too. But, a steam shower offers you that luxurious lifestyle any time you want to access it … after walking the dog, after a long day at work, or just because you don’t need a reason at all!
Push your steam shower experience to the limit with aromatherapy. How’s that for healthy living? Check to make sure that your steam shower comes equipped with a dispensary made especially for essential oils. If it doesn’t, you can still buy an add-on accessory. Call the company that sold you the steam shower if you’re not sure which add-on would work best. Or, you can just pour a few drops of essential oil onto a damp cloth and dab it gently all over your body.
