Most of us could use a little more self-care, but not everyone can take a time out to sink into a soothing bubble bath when they need some TLC. For those people, I have a solution: BodyRestore shower steamers. I like to incorporate them into my morning ritual and start my day with tranquility.

These shower melts turn my bathroom into a deluxe spa instantly. I found them on Amazon for just $30 (pack of 15) — and if you're in need of a luxurious home spa experience, they can be shipped to you for free (orders of $25 or more). But with Amazon Prime, you get free shipping with all orders. Not a member yet? You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here and get all the perks.

What are shower steamers?

Think bath bombs, but for the shower. Each shower steamer is made with baking soda (like bath bombs) and essential oils, which are concentrated plant extracts. You put them on the floor of your shower and they dissolve under the water to release a delicate and relaxing scent.

These shower melts are perfect for anyone who wants the calming spa experience without having to take a long, drawn-out bath. There's no need to fill a tub or wait for anything to dissolve. Best of all: there's absolutely no mess left behind. Each steamer lasts between 10 to 30 minutes — plenty long enough for a normal morning shower.

With nearly 4,000 five-star reviews, many Amazon shoppers have already turned their showers into a spa.

"These make nighttime showers A DREAM," wrote one soothed shopper. "I get out feeling so relaxed. The scent is plenty strong, just make sure the water is hitting it, but not submerged. I bought three packs of different scents and I’m obsessed with all of them. I share a bathroom with three guys and if I can be transported to a luxury spa by just closing my eyes and taking a deep breath, you can too."

"I cannot live without it," said another relaxed reviewer. "I actually look forward to my shower as it’s so much more enjoyable and my husband absolutely loves it too. We actually fight now on who gets to shower first!"

"I was having difficulties sleeping soundly," shared this calm customer. "This really does help me fall, and stay, asleep at night. I would definitely purchase again."

Reported another shower steamer shopper (say that three times fast): "Love these. Better than bath bombs. Turns a shower into an experience."
