Description

If you prefer a shower to a bath, shower steamers are a great option. They’re made with baking soda and citric acid, just like bath bombs. But rather than placing them into a tub, the steamer is placed on the floor of the shower. The water activates the fizzing reaction and releases the essential oils into the air.

The scent creates a spa-like shower. This recipe has tea tree and lavender 40/42 essential oil to create a relaxing and uplifting scent. The recipe does contain quite a bit of essential oil. Because they don’t come in contact with the skin, you don’t need to worry about using too much. These can’t be used like a bath bomb – the amount of essential oil could irritate the skin.

If you prefer another scent, feel free to swap it out. Citrus oils like Orange 10X or red Brazilian mandarin are great for a morning shower. Fragrance oils can also be used – Relaxing is perfect right before bed.

Lavender and Tea Tree Shower Steamers Project
This recipe has tea tree and lavender 40/42 essential oil to create a relaxing and uplifting scent.

Ingredients

6 Cavity Silicone Square Mold
20 oz. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda)
10 oz. Citric Acid
18 mL Tea Tree Essential Oil
18 mL Lavender 40/42 Essential Oil
Witch Hazel in a Spray Bottle
Droppers

Instructions

1

In a large bowl, combine 20 ounces of baking soda and 10 ounces of citric acid. To get rid of clumps in the mixture, you can push the powders through a sifter or break them up with your fingers. Citric acid has a tendency to take off nail polish, so wear gloves to protect your manicure. Thoroughly stir everything together.

2

Add 18 mL of tea tree essential oil and 18 of mL lavender 40/42 essential oil. Use your hands to fully mix into the powder mixture.

step2

 

3

Test the consistency of the mixture. The perfect consistency is similar to wet sand and holds its shape when squeezed. If it’s too dry, use one hand to spritz the mixture with witch hazel and one to mix. Continue spritzing until the mixture holds its shape.

step 4

 

4

 Firmly press the mixture into each cavity of the Silicone Square Mold. Allow the steamers to dry for several hours or up to overnight. Remove from the molds.
