Beat the Heat: Cooling Aromatherapy Shower Steamers for Summer Relief

Summer is here! The time to live your best life - full of energy, bright and flourishing! And everything around is whispering to go outdoors. While that brings many joys to the season, there is a downside to the glorious time of the year. Summer is also the season of sweltering. When temperatures hike and the blazing sun beats down on you, it is unbearably hot. Enduring uncomfortable heat is non-negotiable. You may feel tired, sticky, and irritable. Summer heat also may lead to worsening medical conditions like rosacea, respiratory illnesses, and autoimmuneĀ diseases.

The best thing to do during the warmest time of the year is to stay chilly. Hydrating yourself, eating lightly, wearing light-colored loose clothes, and limiting sunlight exposure are essential to keep you cooler when temperatures soar.

All you must do isĀ place them in your shower, turn on the water,Ā breathe, and let the steamer do its magic.


How Do Menthol and Eucalyptus Give a Cooling Effect?Ā šŸ”ŽšŸŒæšŸ§Š

Menthol and eucalyptus are popular forms of cold therapy and chemically trigger cold receptors and boost blood flow. They do not lower the temperature of the body or skin. Instead, those compounds ā€œtrickā€ your brain into thinking they are cold!

Menthol activates a protein called TRPM8 found in cold-sensing nerve cells and produces a cooling sensation by stopping the current along the nerves responsible for identifying temperature. Then a message receives via the nerve endings is that the body or skin is cooling without any actual fall in temperature in the area. Similarly, eucalyptus, known for itsĀ distinctive, menthol-like aromaĀ due to the presence of eucalyptol, also providesĀ a cooling sensationĀ rather than lowering the skin temperature!

OurĀ Green Gift Set; Green 12-packĀ and Breathe Easy 18-packĀ contain cooling properties of menthol and eucalyptus essential oil for a refreshing shower experience, offering relief from the summer heat and promoting a sense of calm and relaxation. So, whenever you feel hot, donā€™t forget to take a moment to yourself withĀ us to stay cool naturally and more comfortably.

Moreover, menthol and eucalyptus essential oils with anti-inflammatory activity increase blood circulation and help energize fluid flow, reducing redness or puffiness. These benefits may help soothe sun-damaged skin and rejuvenate it. Menthol and eucalyptus essential oils also help respiratory conditions such as asthma and sinusitis by inhaling steam. They react with mucous membranes, helping loosen so that you can cough up and breathe easily. For this reason, Cleverfy steamers help improve summer cold and other respiratory illnesses.
