The ancient Greeks and Romans associated many natural and soothing wellness benefits with various aromatic essential oils. Nowadays, AromaTherapy is associated with holistic practices of caring for the body using botanical oils.

How To Add AromaTherapy To Your Shower Experience
Here are three ways to incorporate AromaTherapy into the ultimate steam shower (and warm towel) experience:
1. You can add essential oils to a MrSteam towel warmer which comes with a built-in aroma oil well (Broadway and Metro collections). Simply turn it on and the towel warmers heat will do the rest.
2. You can install the AromaSteam system, which evenly infuses fragrances into the steam bath via an electronic delivery system for a balanced, seamless integration of AromaTherapy.for a balanced, seamless integration of aromatherapy. It merges oil and steam into a sensuous mix, and the AromaSteam system injector pump atomizes the oil, creating the perfect in-steam aromatherapy experience.
3. For an in-the-moment, low-tech approach to SteamTherapy, add a drop or two of essential oil. (You'll find the essential oils described below.) Prior to turning on the steam bath, simply place a drop or two of the MrSteam concentrated essential oil into your AromaSteam steam head.
Note: if you intend to use different essential oils or fragrances, we recommend wiping the steam head off (and the towel warmer reservoir).
If you are serious about AromaTherapy, this is the ideal solution for you. The pump delivers a vibrant aroma that will surely make you feel intensely good as you relax with steam.
The AromaSteam system is included in the iDream package.
You can also easily add the AromaSteam system with MrSteam Steam Shower Systems. All you need is access to a 120v plug for the AromaPump, and about one hour of labor from a plumber. The AromaPump can be located anywhere outside of the shower, ideally somewhere easy for you to access so you can change the AromaSteam bottle when it is empty.
