The main ingredient in bath balls is an acid-base neutralization reaction between sodium bicarbonate and citric acid, culminating in the production of carbon dioxide.After the bath without body lotion, the skin is also moisturized, this is due to  the oil for oil formulation of shower steamers.

Aside from their fizzing properties, baking soda and citric acid also offer gentle cleansing properties. They help to remove impurities from your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized after each use.

An essential oil shower steam is integrated into a variety of precious plant essential oils, but also moisturizes the skin of the aroma bath ball.

Did you know the magic of shower steamers lies in the fizzing. Once the steamer gets hit with a splash of water or humid shower air, it starts rapidly dissolving and releasing essential oils. This releases aroma molecules of the essential oil into the air and as the moisture circulates, It  turns your whole shower into a personal essential oil diffuser spa! Fizzing is key because that’s what gives steamers their aromatherapy power and directs the smells your way. This is why it is important to melt your shower steamer in hot bath
