What Is a Shower Steamer?

The easiest way to explain a shower steamer is to compare it to another popular self-care implement: the bath bomb. Bath bombs are basically bundles of skin-healthy ingredients and aromatherapeutic scents (and often fun, colorful glitter) that can be dropped into your bath. Once submerged, bath bombs dissolve and infuse all of their goodness into the water.
Similarly, a shower steamer is made with ingredients that are meant to be good for your skin and body, as well as aromatherapeutic elements. These turn your everyday shower into a seriously luxurious experience that makes even the smallest bathroom into a five-star spa.

Do shower steamers Expire?

In short, it depends on the ingredients in the steamer. Shower steamers don’t typically have an expiration date stamped on their packaging; however, they will become less potent over time. Shower steamers retain their peak smell and effectiveness for about six months after being made. After six months, they may have a fainter scent and not fizz up as well as they would’ve beforehand.
If you’ve had a shower steamer for over a year and a half, though, we would caution against using it — unless it’s a Cait + Co Aromatherapy Shower Steamer. Depending on its ingredients and if it was properly stored, it may now contain harmful bacteria. Check the ingredient label to see if there are any ingredients that may be harmful to use after a certain time period, including but not limited to: oatmeal, flower petals, or oils.
Cait + Co shower steamers come shrink wrapped in their own boxes and don’t contain any harmful ingredients for your protection, so they’re less likely to be damaged or contaminated over time.

How to handle expired shower steamers?

If you do not want to dispose of the expired shower steamer, you can repurpose it. Expired shower steamers can be used as air fresheners, drawer sachets, or placed in a bowl of warm water to release any remaining fragrance.
