Momma Told Me: Sometimes it takes all the senses to truly unwind.

Last year, for my birthday, I received a SpaFinder gift card intended to book my very first full body massage. Spending days at the salon, relaxing in Palm Springs, and getting spa treatments are the norm for Momma's half of the family; but I haven't been accustomed to that lifestyle. Allowing myself to relax, in general, was far more disarming than disrobing and laying on top of the table. As it turns out, one of the things that worked best for me was the use of essential oil diffusers and candlelight, that helped ignite and shut off key senses and impulses. As bergamot and lavender wafted through the air my limbs became relaxed and I was able to key in on physical feelings above emotional stresses and trauma. It was worth every penny- but hardly something I could recreate every day.

When I learned there was an aromatherapy system for the shower I was immediately intrigued. For me, the shower is somewhat of a sanctuary, it's the only place where I can turn everything off and focus on me. Whether it's shaving my legs, or simply letting the warm water gently massage my muscles as I stand under the radiating flow. Most days I shower in the morning, to clear my mind for the day and rejuvenate,  some days I take a second shower at night, in the dark to help calm my heightened senses from a stressful day. The Essio Aromatherpy Shower Kit works with your natural relaxation of showering to help enhance certain emotions and responses through essential oil diffusion.

The concept is quite simple, really. A relatively inconspicuous stand is mounted to the base of your shower head with  simple snapping latch. The stand rotates 360 degrees, an extends to meet the height and flow of your water. Simple 'scent pods' attach to the nozzle at the very end and allow for a slow saturating diffuser to release fragrance beneath running water for an aromatic showering experience. The basic starter kit comes with 3 popular essential oil blends; Breathe (decongests and opens),  Passion (awakens desire, and Unwind (Relieve Stress.) There are currently 6 pod blends in total, and they may be purchase in packs of 4 to 8.

My experience was that Breathe certainly came off as the strongest blend, with a very strong presence of cedarwood, eucalyptus, and peppermint essential oils. Out of the three I noticed this one wafted out of the bathroom the most, and even made my lungs tingle a little breathing in the intense steam coming up off the shower stall. Because of this we learned the Essio pods do not always have to be directly under the flow of the water to provide n aromatherapy experience. For hot showers the resulting steam is more than enough to encourage activation of the diffuser.

My personal favorite, and the more mellow of the starter kit pods, was Unwind, featuring Sweet Orange, Lavender, bergamot and vertiver. I found just a burst of this beneath my water in the evenings helped wash away all of the stress and tension of the day. I was also happy to note, while the fragrance lingers in the atmosphere, it does not adhere to one's skin- so the experience is kept as more of a contained spa shower treatment than all day effect. In all, we have been very happy with the results of our Essio experience and I have already been asked when we will be ordering more pods!

How do you unwind with fragrance at home? Have you used essential oils?

What Daughter Says: Take advantage of your guard being down and experience shower aromatherapy.
