The Power of Aromatherapy

I've always loved aromatherapy. It has an almost magical way of shifting my mood! For this special recipe, I chose essential oils that are not only romantic, but promote relaxation and calm:

Rose: The classic scent of love and romance.

Once they're solid, gently unmold them. They're ready to use!

Time to Relax

Place 1-2 shower steamers onto the floor of your shower, away from the direct water stream. Allow the warm water to activate the essential oils and fill your shower with their blissful aroma. Take a deep breath and let the floral scents melt your stress away.

Rose Shower Steamers Tips:

  • Store your leftover shower steamers in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
  • Play around with other essential oil combinations or add different colors of mica powder.
  • These are super cute gifts! Wrap a few in an organza bag with a ribbon for a pretty presentation.
