DIY Shower Bombs with Essential Oils
Essential oils are always around our home, especially during cold and flu season. Make your own Shower Bombs and you’ll love the spa-like experience. If you are like me, this combo of essential oils has me breathing easier.
DIY Shower Bombs are easy to make, and they will turn your shower into a spa experience.
Follow my recipe or experiment with your own favorite essential oil combo.
- 1 cup Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup Arrowroot Powder
- 1/3 cup water
- 15 drops Lavender
- 15 drops R.C. – Respiratory Care Blend
- 15 drops Rosemary
- Stir baking soda and arrowroot powder together in a glass or stainless steel bowl.
- Add water.
- The consistency will be like wet sand, but it should hold together when firmly pressed in your hand.
- Mix in essential oils.
Add Mixture to a Silicone Mold
Using a silicone candy mold, press the mixture into the wells and let dry about 18 hours. I do not recommend speeding up the process using the oven, to preserve all the goodness of the essential oils.
Store in an airtight container. It will last a very long time at room temperature. They are fragile, so for gift giving, use a small glass jar and add cushioning!
Place the shower bomb in your shower out of the direct spray of water. Enjoy inhaling the therapeutic essential oils.
I used a smaller heart-shaped mold, knowing that I can add one or two to the shower. I also can add a shower bomb to a bowl of steaming hot water to use as a vapor tent. Just drape a towel over your head as you bend over the bowl to inhale the aroma.
