Remember last week when I was pontificating about layers and how we all have so many layers ? If you didn’t get a chance to read it you can read it here. Well, it is important to be aware of layers every day and I found the perfect visual for that.
I got these wonderful shower steamers to use in the girls’ stockings this year but found out I had, as usual, overbought, so I had an extra pouch that I decided to just keep and use myself.
The directions are simply to pop one of these on the floor of your shower, not in the direct line of water spray, and let them dissolve and enjoy the fragrance as you shower. A little mini spa not unlike a bath bomb but in shower form.
I popped one in the shower and waited to experience the loveliness that package promised me.The package promised that this type were the type to energize me and trust me – I need some of that about now. So as I washed my hair and showered I waited to feel energized. And waited. I smelled no aromatic waves wafting through my shower.
Quite frankly I was disappointed. I picked up the little puck and noticed something I had not noticed before.
Ah, yes, there it is. A layer. Something that I had not noticed on the one I had placed on the shower floor because it was shrink wrapped so tightly that it did not look like there was anything on the shower steamer at all.
Now I went back and looked at that package and nowhere did it have instructions to take the little wrapping off but honestly I guess I should have been more observant and smart enough to take that protective layer off. Now I know. Now my next shower using my cute little shower steamer will be aromatic and I will emerge energized. Or at least I hope so.
So what about you? What layer do you need to take off today to feel energized? Hopefully it is as easy as taking the plastic film off of a shower steamer.

Lol. That’s something that would happen to me. Hope to hear how your next shower went. 🙂
That very thing happened to me with one for the bath! I´m sure we could all lose a layer or two to be more effective. xo
Sounds like something I would do – not notice the layer of shrink wrap. But in my case, it might just be forgetfulness as well. 🙂 Like this morning when I was fixing my granddaughter’s hair to go to school. I couldn’t find the tiny rubber band to finish off a little braid she wanted in her hair, so I had to get another one out of the package. After she left for school, I found it — on my finger where I had placed it so I wouldn’t lose it. HA! I obviously forgot it was there, so I’d really like to remove that layer of forgetfulness that seems to envelop my brain from time to time.
That is so funny and a good illustration. Keep us posted on whether it works.
Maybe you’ll enjoy that next shower even more!
Your story reminds me of the time my uncle baked rolls in the tube without removing them from the packaging. That didn’t turn out too well.
The way they package things like that it can be hard to see. I have had it happen. You feel silly but it is easy to happen. Looking forward to hearing how the next shower goes.
