Create your own spa getaway with these easy-to-make DIY shower bombs! The next time you need a bit of rejuvenation, toss a shower bomb in the bottom of your shower and enjoy the wonderful scent or create a collection of these homemade shower bombs as a gift for someone you love.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid (available at health food stores or online)
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 30+ drops of your favorite aromatic essential oil (see our suggestions below)
Directions:

Mix together the baking soda and citric acid in a medium-size bowl. In a separate small bowl or bottle, mix together water and essential oil. Slowly add the oil-water mixture a few drops at a time into your dry ingredients, stirring well after each addition (a stand mixer works well for this). When ingredients are thoroughly mixed, tightly pack into 2-inch balls using your hands, a stainless steel cake pop mold, or a cookie scoop. Set on a plate to dry. If necessary, pack the balls again more tightly. Allow to dry for 12+ hours before using.

To use, simply place a bomb near your feet under warm running water and enjoy the aromatic experience!

    Is there a kit available and where could I purchase one to try?

    • Hi Julka, This is a do it yourself recipe and the essential oils are available individually. The other ingredients should be available in your local stores. At this time, we do not have a kit of this kind available. However, this is a great idea and we are happy to forward this on to the appropriate department for future consideration. Thanks for stopping by!
