Aromatherapy and essential oils are a newer interest of mine so I was intrigued when offered the chance to turn my shower into a spa with the Essio Aromatherapy Shower Kit. There are many benefits associated with aromatherapy including reduced inflammation, increased blood circulation, and reduced stress and improved mental well-being.
I received the kit and even from within the shipping box I could get a hint of the terrific fragrances.
The Essio Starter Kit comes with the shower device plus three essential oil pods and is priced $44.99. That’s much less than a trip to the spa! There are six blends available ranging from a lavender-infused Night blend to a eucalyptus-based Breathe blend. These are designed to suit the emotional state of the user at any given point in their day.
Pod replacements come in packs of four and eight and are priced at $19.99 and $29.99 respectively. Each pod will last around 4 – 5 showers on average, but you can get more by tilting the device up and saving for later.
I found it very easy to install the diffuser and just used the included instructions. There is a helpful video available that shows how to use and install the kit. No tools are needed!
I found it pretty easy to get it clipped onto the shower head and ready to go. Since I’ve been having problems with seasonal allergies my first choice was the Breathe formula which is a blend of cedarwood atlas, peppermint, lemon and eucalyptus.
Once the shower is going then the arm should be tilted into the flow so the essential oils are diffused in the spray using patented technology. It worked like a charm. I really enjoyed the shower and didn’t want to get out! There wasn’t any oil in the shower or on my skin afterwards; just pure scent.
It’s important to remove the pod afterwards and store in the handy stand for your next spa shower experience. My favorite things about the Essio Aromatherapy shower kit besides the sinus opening experience are:
- The oils are 100% USDA-certified organic with no synthetics or harsh chemicals
- The whole kit is made from fully recyclable materials, so it’s a green product
The only thing that may bother some people is that the scent remains for a while after your shower. I found it very pleasant and enjoyed it.
I think the Essio Aromatherapy shower kit would make a great gift (holiday list maybe?) or indulgence for yourself. Essio is hosting a giveaway where you can win your own kit. Good luck!
