Do you hate baths, but still want something like a bath bomb to soothe and relax you? Try these DIY shower bombs because they are so easy to make and can be a real treat.
I love the idea of a bath bomb, but I don’t like taking baths. It’s hard to find the right temperature, the water gets cold after a while, and I start to get pruney. I do love showers and find them to be very soothing just on their own. Add in one of these shower bombs and it’s like heaven.
These guys are so easy to make. All you need is baking soda, water, essential oil, muffin liners, and a muffin tin. I used soap dye to add a pop of color to my shower bombs, but that is totally optional. The ratio that I used is 3 parts baking soda and 1 part water. After mixing, spoon into a muffin tin and fill about 3/4 of the way. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes. Let them cool completely and add essential oil to the discs. These can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container or plastic bag.
- baking soda
- essential oil
- muffin liners
- muffin tin
- soap dye (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix water and baking soda (and soap dye, if using) in a bowl until it forms a thick paste.
- Fill the muffin liners about 3/4 of the way full with the paste.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
- Let cool completely and drop essential oil over the discs.
- Put on the shower floor under the water so that it dissolves.
For me, I like a lot of essential oil because my sense of smell is very sensitive and I love good smelling products. My mood can be affected so easily if my nose is smelling something kind of icky. My mood instantly boosts when I’m smelling something nice. I used peppermint and eucalyptus oils in my shower bombs because I appreciate those scents and because it’s great for congestion and cold symptoms. For the amount of essential oil, that is totally up to you. I used about 15 drops of peppermint and 15 drops of eucalyptus per disc. Again, I like to add a lot, so feel free to adapt that in any way you would like.
