When you shower, you get the circulation flowing. Showers should be quick (best to not linger in the heat that can drain your energy) and very deliberately a time of self-love. As with all of feng shui, your positive intention matters! You’ll want your shower to be streamlined, organized, packed with products that are botanically-rich and naturally nourishing for your skin and hair. Start finishing up and recycling all your old products, moving toward a more curated collection of only products you truly love.
This will help set a truly blissful mood. You can choose any essential oil (I like rose also for it’s heart-opening powers). Essential oil will have a profoundly positive effect on your brain chemistry – scent is very powerful – so feel free to play around and find your best oil or blend.

It shocked me to see average bath and shower water tested for chlorine. There’s a very measurable amount of chemicals in your shower water, and in the hot steam, you’re inhaling the fumes as well as drenching your hair and skin in chemicals.

Aquasana Water Filters are an amazing way to remove 90% of chlorine and dramatically reduce other volatile chemicals and toxins in the water and steamy air you’re breathing.
