Bringing the Spa Home: Inviting AromaTherapy Into Your Shower

The world is moving faster than ever, making it crucial to find moments of rest and relaxation whenever possible. Rejuvenating yourself by taking time for self-care can help you maintain a healthy balance between your mind and body. While taking a day to spend at a local spa is a popular option for self-care, by transforming your home into a spa-like sanctuary, you can enjoy moments of zen whenever you feel like it.

One spa trend that has gained a lot of traction is the incorporation of eucalyptus in steam showers. We'll explore the aromatherapy benefits of eucalyptus and break down how you can harness its aromatic indulgence to turn your daily steam shower into a supremely relaxing experience. 

Eucalyptus Essentials 

Eucalyptus has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. An evergreen tree that grows in many parts of the world, eucalyptus leaves contain a compound called eucalyptol. This compound has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and decongestant properties. Because of this, eucalyptus leaves can be made into essential oil for topical use or inhalation.

When the essence is released into a shower's steam, it creates a refreshing atmosphere that can serve to both perk you up and calm you down. For this reason, eucalyptus is the perfect addition to your steam shower. 

Here at MrSteam, not only do we have the cleansing scent of eucalyptus, we also have other scents such as lavendar, evergreen, energizing, breathe, along with a variety of chakra oils.  

Setting the Scene 

It's easy to transform your shower into a peaceful retreat. Just take fresh eucalyptus bundles and hang them from your showerhead. Fresh eucalyptus can be found at many home goods stores or natural wellness centers. They can also be ordered online to arrive at your home in just a few days!

After the eucalyptus bundles are suspended from your showerhead, shower as normal. As the steam rises from the heat of the shower, the essential oils will activate and you'll start to enjoy the therapeutic aroma. 

Therapeutic Benefits 

There are several therapeutic benefits to eucalyptus. From respiratory relief to stress reduction, here are a few of the primary benefits of harnessing the eucalyptus trend. 

Respiratory Relief 

Eucalyptus, along with some other aromatherapy scents, may provide relief from respiratory issues. Inhaling the steam infused with eucalyptus can help clear clogged nasal passages. If you've been struggling with congestion or if you regularly experience seasonal allergies, eucalyptus could help you breathe easier. 

Stress Reduction 

There's nothing like the calming aroma of essential oils to soothe your mind and relax your senses. Incorporating aromatherapy into your shower routine promotes stress relief, so you can focus less on the worries of the day and more on all the good things life has to offer. 

Antibacterial Properties 

Eucalyptus has antibacterial and antiviral properties. With the steam from the shower helping to disperse these properties throughout your bathroom, you'll be creating a clean, refreshing environment. 

Muscle Relaxation 

Physical stress can take just as much of a toll as mental stress. If you struggle with tense muscles or soreness due to hard labor or rigorous exercise, eucalyptus can be an excellent addition to your daily routine. The invigorating scent of fresh eucalyptus can help relax your muscles and promote an overall sense of well-being. 

Tips for an Aromatic Experience 

Before you embrace the eucalyptus trend, review these tips. They will help you make the most of your aromatherapy experience! 

Choose Fresh Eucalyptus 

Fresh eucalyptus provides more potent aromatherapy benefits than dried branches. While dried ones will do in a pinch, try to source fresh eucalyptus whenever possible. 

Adjust the Placement 

You can adjust the placement of your eucalyptus bundles to find the ideal position for maximum fragrance dispersion. If the bundles don't stay put on your showerhead, you can use some twine to attach them. Just remember to replace the twine regularly. 

Combine with Essential Oils 

For a really powerful aromatherapy experience, add a few drops of essential oils to your shower floor. Alternatively, use a diffuser in your bathroom to disperse the scent and surround yourself with a calming vibe. 

Bring in Steam 

By combining steam and essential oils, you'll create a calming, spa-like experience. MrSteam can help you create a rejuvenating and luxurious steam experience, with steam showers customized to your specifications.
