There is little time I find more relaxing than my time spent in the shower. It's a similar type of feeling to when I go for a long walk in my local park and spend the day breathing in the fresh air, unwinding. Finding things that help put you at ease are so important, as those feelings can affect your overall stress levels, and ultimately, your health. So, what if there was a way to combine the two relaxing activities? Fortunately, science has given us a reason to spice up our bathroom aesthetic: putting plants in the shower can actually improve your overall health.
It's a known fact that keeping plants in your apartment can make you feel better. But why not take it one step further and put plants inside your shower? For starters, it's a place you'll consistently visit and its purpose is already to improve your health. Without showers, not only would I smell atrocious, but my physical and mental health would surely deteriorate. Giving your shower an extra boost with a few plants will not only make the space a lot cuter — since plants always make a room look better — but can better your overall health every time you're around them. Plants like eucalyptus are particularly good for the shower because they release essential oils when steamed, while hanging plans like pothos, ivy, or philodendrons will cascade down your bathroom walls and increase the rustic spa-like vibe.
