I have used shower steamers for years. Mainly eucalyptus, for sinus congestion but also just for the smell. If I can smell ANYTHING citrus, it instantly wakes me up in the mornings. Recently I’ve been using them to help with my anxiety. The feeling of the steam on my skin helps me feel more grounded and relaxed.
