WHAT ARE SHOWER STEAMERS? Shower Steamers release essential oils and menthol crystals into the air during a normal shower to help soothe inflamed nasal tissue, relieve sinus headaches, and promote drainage to relieve sinus pain.
Shower Steamers are made with essential oils such as eucalyptus, lavender, wintergreen, sweet orange & grapefruitcombined with crushed menthol crystals. Inhale the fumes (once the shower stream hits the shower steamer) to help relieve sinus pain, pressure, or congestion. NOT FOR USE IN BATHS.
