To use the shower steamer, start by reading the warning label. Always handle the product with dry hands and remove it from its packaging. Take off the plastic seal and break the shower steamer into four parts. Store three parts in the clip seal bag, keeping it in a cool, dry place. The remaining piece can either be placed in the provided muslin bag and hung from the tap, or placed at the far end of the shower floor, away from the direct water flow. As you shower, the steamer will get damp and start to fizz, similar to a bath bomb, and release essential oils into the steam. Avoid wetting the entire steamer at once to prevent overpowering scents. After your shower, you might notice a powdery residue on the floor, which will be washed away in your next shower.
Warning For safe usage of the shower steamer, please keep in mind the following guidelines. Contact with skin and eyes should be avoided; rinse immediately if this occurs. The product is not intended for application on skin, and usage should be discontinued if any irritation is noticed. The shower steamer should not be completely dissolved at once as the strong concentration of essential oils and menthol crystals can be overwhelming. Some oils may not be suitable for children or expectant mothers, hence it’s advised not to use the product during pregnancy. Please ensure it’s stored in a dry place and used externally only. Avoid standing directly under the dissolving shower steamer and be cautious as the floor may become slippery due to the essential oils. The steamer leaves a white powdery residue on the shower floor after dissolving, but this can be easily rinsed off during the next shower. It’s recommended not to touch the steamer with wet hands or skin, and it’s important to remember that these are not bath bombs and therefore should not be placed in a bath.
Our aim is to provide you with comprehensive information on the ingredients used in our Shower Steamer, a part of our bath body & spa product line. This will assist you in making knowledgeable decisions about your wellness essentials.
