Mr. Steam and Colour therapy.


A thank you to Mr. Steam who was part sponsor of the Modenus Blog Tour LA which I attended earlier this month.

So, you may wonder who is Mr. Steam ? and why am I showing you my colourful mug collection?

The answer to the former question is that Mr. Steam is one of the largest manufacturer of electric steam boilers in the world. They make steam boilers for the U.S Navy, hospital operating rooms and Kennedy space centre.

Recently, they have ventured into the commercial and residential spa experience, creating high tech swipe touch control steam shower systems which now can also integrate aromatherapy, music therapy or Chromatherapy.

Chromatherapy also known as colour therapy is believed to be associated with a sense of wellbeing.

Here’s where my colourful mugs come into play, they are what I see every morning when I make coffee. Collectively, their vibrant colours are enough to eliminate any lingering sleepiness. Perhaps my daily colour choice is my subconscious acknowledgement for colour therapy.

Anyway, how nice it must be to relax in a steam shower, a spa in your own home and to experience its benefits with the additional triple treat of relaxing scents, colour and music.

So, without further ado, here’s what the colours  do ( information was extracted from the Mr. Steam website).


Blue is Celestial- helping you communicate and share your discoveries.


Orange is Exploration both physical and mental.


Yellow is Awakening to personal power and awareness.


Red is Vitality that sparks raw creativity.


Green is Harmony, helping you get back in step with life’s rhythms.


Violet is Nirvana, the culmination of time, place and being.

Hope you have enjoyed reading about steam therapy and to have a peek at my colourful mug collection.

Have a lovely week ahead. x


  1. I like the very creative comparison of your colorful mug collection making you happy in the morning and how colors in a steam bath can have a similar effect. Happy weekend, Geraldine.

  2. Such a fabulous way to personalize this post!! Geraldine, I have a huge collection of ceramic mugs too that are displayed on an open shelf in my kitchen and brings so much happiness everyday. Your collection, now that I know you, so perfectly exemplifies your aesthetic and taste. LOVE the post and your take on Mr. Steam, one of our #BlogTourLA sponsors!
