What Is a Shower Steamer?

A shower steamer is essentially like your bath bomb, but for your shower. They are tablets that fizz as water or steam touch them, then release an incredible scent depending on what oils are blended into the shower steamer. You can find them in any size, color, and aroma.
Besides the inviting scent they provide, shower steamers are also soothing and can help with recovery. Many people have used them to reduce stress and improve rest and relaxation or provide a quick jolt of energy. These aromatherapy benefits are because of the essential oils used in the shower steamer.

How Do Shower Steamers Work?

Shower steamers use the core ingredients of baking soda and citric acid, and once it mixes with water from your shower, you’ll notice a fizzing reaction.
That reaction creates gasses, releasing the essential oils packed in your shower steamer in the air in the process. That’s how these steamers work in giving you a spa like experience in the shower. The pros and cons of essential oils.

How Long Do Shower Steamers Last?

A shower steamer is a little puck of magic you place in the shower which releases essential oils and scents to enhance your shower experience. They are inexpensive and can be bought in stores or online but how many do you need and how long does one shower steamer last?

A shower steamer will last in the shower for between 5-10 minutes. The ingredients react with the water on contact to release the scent and oils inside, therefore, the lifespan of the steamer is directly related to how much water it comes into contact with.

Store-bought shower bombs tend to be smaller and will last for only a single shower, however, if you decide to get clever and make them yourself at home, you could create larger steamers that will keep you going through maybe two or three showers.

Do shower steamers expire?

Shower steamers do not typically have an expiration date, as they do not contain any perishable ingredients. However, the essential oils in a shower steamer may begin to lose their potency over time, especially if the steamer is not stored properly.
To ensure that your shower steamer is at its best, be sure to store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Avoid storing the steamer in a damp or humid environment, as this can cause the essential oils to degrade more quickly.
If you have a shower steamer that is several years old and you’re not sure if it is still effective, you can test it by placing a small piece of the steamer in a bowl of hot water. If the steamer releases a strong scent and generates a lot of steam, it is probably still good to use. If the steamer does not release a strong scent or generates very little steam, it may be time to replace it.
