Flowers and Herbs for Shower-opathy02-22-2023
We learned this beautiful tip from a bed and breakfast years ago and it has made our showers even more luxurious and heavenly with a minimal investment. The concept is simple: buy these flowers or herbs at your local florist (or even grocery store, as we do) and hang them from the shower head!
It’s that simple, this little addition to your week will not only look beautiful, but smell absolutely incredible and the herbs we use have health benefits as well! Here’s some of our favorite flowers and herbs we use on rotation to best suit our needs for the week.
Not only does lavender smell like a french countryside, but it is also known to reduce stress and anxiety. If you take your showers before bed, Lavender is also a well known flower to help you sleep more peacefully at night.
This herb has been used for centuries as an expectorant and decongestant. Hanging eucalyptus sprigs in your shower helps clear sinuses and improve breathing! It’s the perfect pick-me-up herb for early morning showers before work or play!
Rosemary is said to have anti-inflammatory properties which can help soothe sore muscles after an intense workout or long day on your feet. The woody aroma of rosemary also gives a deep soothing and relaxing vibe to your showers. Try this herb if you like to work out first before having a shower.
