Shower Steamers, The Bath Bomb For Your Shower

Shower steamers are a delightful and eco-friendly alternative to bath bombs. If you're not a fan of taking baths but still want to indulge in some aromatherapy and relaxation, shower steamers are the perfect solution. Parrotfish's shower steamers, made with natural and nourishing ingredients, are a great addition to your shower routine. In this blog post, we'll explore the benefits of shower steamers and how they can help you decongest, unwind, and reduce your water usage.

What Are Shower Steamers?

Shower steamers are similar to bath bombs in that they release aroma when activated by water. However, instead of being placed in a bathtub, shower steamers are placed in the shower, where they are activated by the steam and water. The scent of the steamer fills your shower with a luxurious and indulgent aroma, creating a spa-like atmosphere.

Parrotfish's Shower Steamers

Parrotfish's shower steamers are made with natural ingredients and essential oils that offer a range of benefits. The Eucalyptus Shower Steamer, for example, was created to decongest Katie's nephews during cold and flu seasons. She combined eucalyptus and tea tree essential oils with baking soda, citric acid, corn starch and witch hazel to form a steamer. She puts her two little boys in the shower with a steamer to help loosen the mucus in their chests. Each steamer will last the length of one shower, so when the steamer is finished – so is the shower. "Both of my sons get extremely stuffed up when autumn arrives, so this steamer is a lifesaver for me. I don't have to bargain with them to take medicine or chase them around the house to blow their nose," Brittany explains. Now, her sons have started asking for a steamer during other shower times. Their joy brought her to create an additional scents – Chamomile Blossom (chamomile and lavender essential oils) Now, the boys enjoy washing off and get excited when they choose their shower scent.


You may notice that shower steamers have a more fragrant scent than bath bombs. This added aroma is because when using the steamer, your nose is 5+ feet away from it, unlike bath bombs, where you are typically nose-level with the product. It may seem like the scent is too much when holding the steamer up to your nose, but when the product is in action – it has just the right amount of aroma to fill your shower with decadent smells. Although these steamers will not expire, the scent can dissipate over time if not kept in an airtight container. These are not designed to go in your bath or on the skin.

Benefits of Using Shower Steamers

Shower steamers also save water when compared to a bath bomb. On average, a bath requires 50 gallons of water, while a shower uses 2.5 gallons per minute. So, a 10-minute shower using one of our steamers will use half the amount of water and provide the same spa-like atmosphere! Additionally, If we all cut our shower time by one minute, we would save 165 billion gallons of water annually. That's almost 250,000 Olympic-size swimming pools!


Parrotfish's shower steamers offer a range of benefits that make them a great addition to your shower routine. They are made with natural ingredients and essential oils, offer a luxurious and indulgent atmosphere, and can help you decongest, unwind, and reduce your water usage. Try them out for yourself and experience the benefits of shower steamers first hand.

Shower Steamers vs Bath Bombs

Shower steamers and bath bombs are both popular options for enhancing your bathing experience, but they offer distinct benefits and usage methods.


Shower steamers are designed to be used in the shower, where they dissolve upon contact with water to release aromatic essential oils into the steam. This creates a spa-like atmosphere and allows you to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of aromatherapy without the need for a bathtub. Shower steamers are typically placed on the floor of the shower, where they can gradually dissolve as you shower, filling the air with delightful scents and promoting relaxation.


On the other hand, bath bombs are intended for use in the bathtub. These fizzy, effervescent balls are dropped into the bathwater, where they dissolve and release color, fragrance, and moisturizing ingredients. Bath bombs create a luxurious bathing experience, transforming your bathwater into a colorful and fragrant oasis. They often contain nourishing oils and butters that can soften and hydrate the skin, leaving you feeling pampered and refreshed after your bath.


In summary, shower steamers are ideal for those who prefer showers or do not have access to a bathtub, offering a convenient way to enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy. Bath bombs, on the other hand, provide a luxurious bathing experience in the bathtub, with colorful fizz and moisturizing properties. Whether you choose shower steamers or bath bombs, both options can elevate your bathing routine and promote relaxation and well-being.
