Congestion and allergies are very real concerns for people throughout the year. Using steam is one of the most effective ways to reduce congestion from sinuses, colds, or allergies. It is not uncommon for people with chronic or occasional sinus congestion to breathe in steam to soothe nasal passages and to help reduce the mucus that is causing the inability to breathe.

One of the tried-and-true methods of using steam for sinus congestion relief is to fill a bowl with hot water and place a towel over your head. Allow the towel to trap the steam as you place your face over the bowl and breathe in.

Improving the Process

However, there is a much easier and more effective way to access the benefits of steam. A shower steamer is a small disc or tablet that easily dissolves in the presence of hot water. Placing this disc in the shower allows you to enjoy the benefits of the steam from the shower combined with the added benefits of the ingredients added to the Life Elements Shower Steamer.

Eucalyptus and menthol are also traditionally used as decongestants. Combining these with the baking soda and citric acid formulation of the shower steamer provides an invigorating, minty, and refreshing addition to the steam, turning your shower into a soothing DIY spa.

These tablets dissolve completely in the water from the shower for fast release. They can also be placed to the side of the stream of water to slowly release the menthol and eucalyptus scents.

CBD Shower Steamer

If you ever see an ad for a CBD Shower Steamer, run away as fast as you can and don’t waste your money! Like a CBD Shampoo or any other kind of “wash off” product, there is absolutely no value in using CBD for these products because it would just get washed down the drain!
