How to Use Shower Steamers

How to Use Shower Steamers

When we look at our bestsellers, there's been one product holding down the #1 spot... pretty much since we first got them in.

That product is Shower Steamers.

Made locally by AAPI woman-owned business Lulumière.

Shower Steamers are new to a lot of our shoppers, so I thought today I'd put together a blog post that walks you through how to use them.

What Are Shower Steamers?

Shower Steamers are the best! I like to think of them as a "bath bomb" but for showers, not baths. They are little cubes that you place in the shower. The steam activates the essential oils and they basically turn your shower into a steam room!

How to Use Shower Steamers

  1. Place a shower steamer on your shelf or floor, out of the direct stream of water.
  2. Allow water to gently meet the steamer cube
  3. As the cube melts, take deep, slow breaths.

Pro Tips 🌟 (Straight from the Maker!)

Who better to get some tips than straight from the maker herself?

I asked Linda Takano, owner of Lulumière, if she had any tips for using shower steamers. Here's what she had to share with us!

Yes, I have tips! Because I’m not just the maker, I’m a power user too! 😉

#1 tip: Don’t save them for too long!

Because of the natural way we scent them & that we don’t use preservatives, they are best when used within 3 months. They are meant to be used & enjoyed.

#2: I recommend placing these in the shower on the shelf that is closest to your nose, because your feet can’t smell them.

And finally, #3: If it has been a little bit since you first opened the bag, I highly recommend adding a few drops of essential oil to your steamer just before using.

Of course, you can match the oils according to the scent blend of your shower steamers, but you can also get creative and add whatever oils you have at home.

Whether you have the lavender & eucalyptus or the peppermint & eucalyptus, I think those would go well with any citrus essential oils you have or even a woodsy or floral one. Use what you have!

Such great tips, Linda -- thank you so much!!

Fun fact 💫

Linda is one of my first-ever small business friends (we even shared a booth a craft show together, years ago, when I was vending with my first small business Good Sheila).

Linda is an absolute 💎 GEM 💎 of a human and I could not adore her more. She is a perfect example of why I love being a small business owner so much -- getting to connect with other small business owners like her!
