Stepping into the shower has always been my tried-and-true way of hitting the reset button — mentally and physically cleansing myself of everyday stress and tension. After a 15-minute rinse, I'm good as new.
To make my daily shower time even more relaxing, I've made it a point to invest in aromatic, mood-boosting body washes, steam sprays, and candles, and now my bathroom is basically a wellness retreat.
I can't sing the praises of a good shower enough, so I've rounded up six essentials that'll help turn your shower into a spa-like experience, too.
EUROPEAN SPA SOURCE’S EUCALYPTUS SHOWERSPA MIST
Made from 100 percent eucalyptus oil, European Spa Source's Eucalyptus ShowerSPA Mist ($58 for two) is steam distilled, filtered, and chemically analyzed for consistency and quality. Turn your shower into a relaxing aromatherapy experience with just a few sprays that'll work to ease tension in both the mind and body.
VICTSING’S SOUNDHOT C6 PORTABLE BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
Bring the soothing sounds of the rainforest or beach to your shower with the VicTsing's SoundHot C6 Portable Bluetooth Speaker ($17.99). If soundscapes aren't your thing, sing along to your favorite playlist as you decompress. Either way, this waterproof Bluetooth compatible speaker suction cups to the wall or effortlessly hangs from a hook without taking up too much space.
SIPCADDY BATH & SHOWER PORTABLE CUPHOLDER
If your idea of unwinding involves a glass of vino, SipCaddy's Bath & Shower Portable Cupholder ($13.95) is the shower accessory for you. This wine-glass holder suctions to the wall of your tub, so you can sip while you're suds-ing. I can't think of a better time to indulge in some red, white, or rose than while cleansing yourself of daily stress. Beer-drinkers, SipCaddy offers a cupholder for you, too.
SOAP CHERIE AROMATHERAPY SHOWER STEAMER DUO
Bath bomb lovers: the Soap Cherie Aromatherapy Steamer Duo ($6) is the perfect shower counterpart to your go-to tub product. Just place a cube onto your shower floor or shelf and inhale the clean, bright aromas as they invigorate the steam around you. Made from baking soda, citric acid, shea body, Epsom salt, an herbal mix, and fragrant oils, this must-have was created to temper day-to-day anxieties.
REN ATLANTIC KELP AND MAGNESIUM SALT ANTI-FATIGUE EXFOLIATING BODY SCRUB
Upgrade your body scrub with Magnesium Salt Anti-Fatigue Exfoliating Body Scrub ($49) for an energizing physical and mental experience. This balm combines sea and magnesium salts, Atlantic Kelp extract, microalgae, and essential oils, which work together to help relax your muscles, promotes skin cell renewal, and replenish skin moisture. It's all-in-one products like this that'll have you stepping out of the shower feeling refreshed.
