I am someone who often has congestion thanks to allergies (and dogs).
By adding a shower steamer to a warm shower I am able to inhale the essential oils that are helpful to my breathing.
This project uses eucalyptus which is good for alleviating breathing issues.
Also used is peppermint which is the perfect partner for the euclyptus.
People ask where should the shower steamer be placed in a shower.
Shower steamers work by breaking down when they come in contact with water.
When warm shower water is used, the steam works with the essential oils to help alleviate congestion.
I find that shower steamers work well when they are near the water.
However, placing them just under the running water can make the steamer run out too fast.
Also, you probably do not want to place the steamers too close to the shower drain or where you can slip on them.

How to make Diy Congestion Relief Shower Steamers.

Gather your ingredients together.
Make sure that the mold you are using is clean, free of debris, and dry.
Prep the work area as needed. You can wear gloves if desired.
Step Two: combine ingredients.
In a bowl, use a fork or whisk to mix together the baking soda and the Epsom salts.
Then stir in the water and eucalyptus leaves. I like to break up the leaves before adding them.
Add the essential oils to the bowl and stir the ingredients.
You want the ingredients to resemble wet sand and be able to mold them together in your hand like wet sand.
Step Three: finish the shower steamers.
Use a small spoon to distribute the mixture to your mold. Be sure to pack the mixture down with the spoon to pack it down into each of the cavities. Then let the molds set for 24-48 hours until they are set.
Unmold the steamers and then store in an airtight container in a cool location or refrigerated until you are ready to use them.
To use the steamers, place one at the corner of the shower, allowing the steamer to get wet. This will release the essential oil vapors. Do not keep in a direct water stream or where you can slip on it.
