What Is a Shower Steamer

A shower steamer is essentially like your bath bomb, but for your shower. They are tablets that fizz as water or steam touch them, then release an incredible scent depending on what oils are blended into the shower steamer. You can find them in any size, color, and aroma.
Besides the inviting scent they provide, shower steamers are also soothing and can help with recovery. Many people have used them to reduce stress and improve rest and relaxation or provide a quick jolt of energy. These aromatherapy benefits are because of the essential oils used in the shower steamer.

These DIY shower steamers are SO EASY to make and they smell amazing! Turn your shower into a spa with these shower bombs made with essential oils.


  • 1 cup Baking soda
  • 1/4 cup Citric acid
  • 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon Mica powder (GREEN, OR COLOUR OF CHOICE - OPTIONAL)
  • 20 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
  • 20 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • ~25 sprays Water (ROUGHLY 1-1/2 TEASPOONS)


  • Bowl

  • Spoon

  • Spray bottle

  • Silicone muffin pan (or other mold)


Step 1: Find what you need

  • Gather your supplies and materials.

Step 2: Combine the shower steamer ingredients

  • Add baking soda, citric acid, cornstarch, and mica powder to a bowl.

  • Mix the dry ingredients together, and then add the essential oils. Stir the mixture gently.

  • Add water to the dry ingredients slowly, 3 to 5 sprays at a time.If you add too much water at once it will cause a reaction with the baking soda and citric acid, making the mixture foam and expand.

  • After you've added water a couple of times, check to see if the shower steamer mixture stays together.

  • If it doesn't stay together, add more water and stir gently.

  • Once the shower steamer mixture is ready it should feel like damp sand, and it will stay together when you squeeze it tightly in your hand.

Step 3: Add the mixture to the silicone molds

  • Add the mixture to the silicone molds, one spoonful at a time. Make sure to press down firmly after each spoonful.

  • Fill the mold completely and then add another spoonful on top.

  • Use your hand to press down firmly

  • Fill the rest of the molds in the same way. Allow the shower steamers to dry in the molds overnight.

  • Once the tablets are dry, remove them from the molds. Read below for tips on how to store the shower steamers.

  • Your shower steamers are complete!

How to use Shower Steamers

Making your shower routine an intoxicating experience by using shower steamers is a simple process to follow whenever you take a shower.

Start by letting your hot shower build up steam inside the shower. You can start with extremely hot water and adjust the water temperature accordingly afterward.
Place one shower steamer on your shower floor. But find a location where the shower stream won’t hit the shower steamer directly, simply close enough for water splashes to hit it. The idea is to let the fizzy create a steam effect, slowly but steadily.
Allow the shower steam to activate the fizz and release the aromatic essential oils throughout the shower. The warm steam and the incredible aromatherapy will let you relax and enjoy your shower like never before.
