Shower Steamers DIY

DIY Shower Steamer Recipe


Make some soothing shower steamers with this easy recipe. These shower bombs are just the thing you need when you want to relax and steady your mind.


  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup citric acid
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 30-35 drops of essential oil or blend
  • witch hazel (misted on)
  • dried flowers, candy sprinkles or sea salt crystals *** optional for top


  • fine mist spray bottle
  • large bowl and whisk
  • molds or muffin tins with paper liners


  1. Mix the baking soda, citric acid and corn starch together. Then add essential oils.
  2. Next mist the powder mixture with witch hazel while stirring until the mixture will clump in your hand.
  3. Fill mold an press firmly to pack well. If you are decorating add that to bottom of mold before filling.
  4. Air dry the shower steamers fully, then place them in airtight packaging or a sealed jar to retain the strongest scent.


If you want to split your batch just estimate separating the dry mixture in two. Then apply 15-18 drops of essential oil in each bowl and mist each with the witch hazel while stirring. I split the batch in the video 50/50 -  lavender with buds in half for evening showers and the other half was a blend of lemongrass and lemon oils with Himalayan salt and marigold petals for morning showers

Makes 8 tablets as shown, but yield will vary based on mold size.
