ESSIO is the greatest thing to happen to showers since running water itself!
It clips onto any shower and diffuses 100% organic essential oils into the shower water,at the perfect rate, tp rejuvenating the mind and body, and turn your shower into an at-home spa!
Numerous studies have shown that essential oils improve stress levels and produce calming effects on users, in addition to their positive effect on skin tone, the immune and circulatory systems. This is why they are used in so many products, when you are at a spa! With the new Essio, essential oil is slowly diffused using their patented technology into the water stream, so you get a consistent aroma experience throughout your whole shower.
The result is that Essio leaves the mind relaxed, the body refreshed, and the skin softer without leaving any oily residue in the hair! Those are things anyone can love!
The Essio Aromatherapy Diffuser starter kit comes with everything you need to get started- the shower attachment, clip and 3 essential oil pods!
My kit came with these oil pods-
Breathe (yellow/clearing)- Cedarwood, Peppermint, Lemon and Eucalyptus
Passion (pink/ passion)- Lavender, Citrus, Palmarosa, Clove, Pachouli, and Cinnamon
Unwind (green/ unwind)- Sweet Orange, Bergamot, Pettigrain, Lavender Patouchi, and Vetiver
You can also purchase 3 other blends: Clear (for sharp focus), Night (calming), and Wisdom (enlightening), Essio's essential oils are 100% USDA-certified organic and there are no synthetics or harsh chemicals used whatsoever!
The Essio system is extremely easy to install, even a child could do it (if they could reach the shower head! LOL). It took literally 2 minutes from start to finish to have the system ready to go, and best part? NO tools required! And because of the ease of installation, you can take it from shower to shower, if you need to- Which can make it a great traveling companion too!
The attachment arm clips onto the standard shower pipe that is in most showers. Don't worry that it seems too short- the pod holder pulls OUT and down, so your pod is in the water stream!
You unsnap the top of the oil pod and remove it. This then activates the pod. You then just snap it into place on the Essio swing arm, and extend over the shower head into the water, instantly creating aroma, as the oil comes down into the water stream.
Each pod will last around 4 - 5 showers on average, but you can get more by tilting the device up and saving for later. This is very easy to do, and again, because it is SO easy to install, you can even take the arm, with the pod attached off, and lay it in the box upright, to keep any oil from spilling, until you're ready to use it again. This is a key point, as the oils ARE strong, and if you have anyone in the family with asthma or allergies, removing it when not in use may be needed.
The Passion oil is very enliving and the Unwind is definitely calming- Miss Grace loved it, which she should as it has some of her favorite scents in it. Due to family allergies to Eucalyptus, we didn't try the breathe oil.
If you are looking for an unique green (the whole kit is made from fully recyclable materials!) and beneficial gift to add to your holiday buying list, you may want to consider this wonderful kit! It is an unique gift that allows the recipient to turn their shower into a personal spa!
