How To Use Essential Oils In The Shower

Imagine starting your day with a refreshing, invigorating shower infused with the natural benefits of essential oils. Or unwinding after a long day with a calming, aromatic experience that relaxes your mind and body. Essential oils can enhance your shower routine and promote overall wellbeing. In this guide, we will explore the numerous ways you can harness the power of essential oils in your daily shower rituals and elevate your shower experience to a spa-like retreat.

Why Use Essential Oils in the Shower?

Essential oils offer a wide array of benefits for both the mind and body. Incorporating essential oils into your shower routine can help:

  • Improve mood and emotional wellbeing
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Clear nasal and respiratory congestion
  • Provide an energy boost
  • Aid in relaxation and sleep
  • Promote healthy skin and hair

How to Use Essential Oils in the Shower

There are several ways to incorporate essential oils into your shower routine:

1. Aromatherapy Shower Steamers

Shower steamers (also known as shower bombs) are an easy way to infuse your shower with the aroma of essential oils. Simply place the steamer on the shower floor, slightly away from the direct stream of water. As the water hits the steamer, it will dissolve and release the essential oil vapors into the air.

2. DIY Shower Gel or Body Wash

Create your own shower gel or body wash by mixing a few drops of essential oils with a gentle unscented soap base. This allows you to customize your shower experience by selecting essential oils that fit your specific needs and preferences.

3. Essential Oil-Infused Shampoo and Conditioner

Add a few drops of essential oils to your shampoo or conditioner to promote healthy hair and scalp. Certain essential oils, like rosemary, tea tree, and lavender, are known for their hair and scalp benefits.

4. Shower Spray

Combine a few drops of essential oils with water in a spray bottle. Before stepping into the shower, lightly mist the shower walls with the essential oil spray. The aroma will be released as the steam from the shower interacts with the droplets on the walls.

5. Inhale Directly

Place a drop or two of essential oil on a washcloth or cotton ball, and place it near the showerhead. The steam from the shower will diffuse the aroma of the oils, creating an ideal environment for inhalation and absorption.

How To Use Essential Oils In The Shower Example:

For a rejuvenating morning shower, try the following essential oil blend in your DIY shower gel:

  • 5 drops of eucalyptus oil – for respiratory health and mental clarity
  • 5 drops of citrus oil (orange or lemon) – for uplifting mood and energy
  • 3 drops of peppermint oil – for awakening the senses

Mix the essential oils in a glass container with 1 cup of unscented liquid castile soap. Shake gently to combine. Use the mixture as you would any body wash, enjoying the invigorating aromas as you cleanse and refresh.

Essential oils can take your shower experience to new heights, with their numerous physical and emotional benefits.
