Can You Use a Bath Bomb in the Shower?

Bath bombs are not meant to be used in the shower. Shower bombs are a different product that is specifically designed for use in the shower.  If you try to use a bath bomb in the shower, it will most likely just dissolve before it has a chance to do anything. Plus, the essential oils and colorants may not be able to withstand the water pressure from a shower head.

So, if you want to use a bath bomb in the shower, make sure you get a shower bomb instead! Likewise, for a shower bomb in the bath.

What's the difference between shower steamers and bath bombs?

Most people are familiar with bath bombs, the round, sometimes wildly colored confections made to be dropped into the bath and fizz into a divine soaking experience. What many people don't know is that there is an alternative for the shower taker called a shower steamer. (They're also sometimes called shower bombs and shower fizzies.) A shower steamer is placed on the floor of the shower and evaporates in the steam (it shouldn't be placed directly under the water) releasing a burst of fragrance and aromatherapy.

The key difference between bath bombs and shower steamers is the way the oils are used. Bath bombs often use essential oils blended with a carrier oil and moisturizers to make the water hydrating and soothing to the skin. Since the steamers don't come in contact with the skin when you use them, they use essential oils for fragrance only, and generally avoid heavy use of oils so as not to make the shower floor slippery.

The other difference is the shape. Steamers tend to be flat; either a flat disc or a small cube, so they will stay in place in the shower. Bath bombs tend to be round which causes them to rotate as they dissolve and mix their ingredients into the bath water more efficiently. It's recommended to use a slotted tray with your steamers so that they don't get covered with water and dissolve too quickly.

How to use a bath bomb in the shower

Even though bath bombs and shower steamers have different uses, their ingredients are quite similar. This means that if used correctly, bath bombs can provide an experience comparable to shower steamers.

Here is a basic guide on how to use bath bombs in the shower:

Step 1: Place the bath bomb where water will activate but not immediately wash away. Try hanging in a mesh bag.

Step 2: Set the mood with calming music and dimmed lights.

Step 3: The bath bomb will fizz and release aromatherapy scents. Enjoy the playful fragrance.

Step 4: Relax and breathe deeply to immerse in the experience. Let the scents wash stress away.
