Homemade Shower Bombs

My teenagers are all over making homemade shower bombs! It does not matter if they are not feeling their best, just want to relax after a workout, or an evening of making shower bombs with their friends. Our theory is the simpler the process...the better.

The essential oils that we use to make our homemade shower bombs are solely Young Living essential oils because of their Seed to Seal Process. Granted, I know that there are other companies that are out there a that are just as pure, so it is our personal preference. 

Shower Bombs
  • 1 cup of baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 15 drops of your desired essential oil
  • Cupcake liners. You can also use the different forms that you can purchase and IKEA like ice cube trays that come in all shapes and sizes. For the purpose of this tutorial we are using the cupcake liners. 
Place the paper liners in cupcake pan. Mix the baking soda, cornstarch and water in a porcelain dish.  The mixture should be putty like. Fill the liners 1/2 full.  Let them sit and cure overnight OR bake at 350 F for 15 minutes and let cool.

After the discs have dried or cooled, add 15 drops of your essential oil to the top of the discs.  One thing that we have started to do is not to add the essential oils on top of the baking soda mixture until we know what we are wanting to use them for. That way we do not have multiple containers in our home but one, and then can customize to what we are needing to use them for.

Store in a sealed container with the liners wrapped around the mixture. When you use the shower bombs peel the paper liner off of the baking soda mixture, and place at the bottom of the shower where they will dissolve after time.

There are several essential oils for your shower bombs that you can use. Below are a few ideas for you: 

  1. Orange Essential Oi
  2. Eucalyptus Essential Oil
  3. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
  4. Lemongrass Essential Oil
  5.  Eucalyptus/Peppermint/Lemon Essential Oils (this is a combination of oils put together)
  6. Orange/Lime Essential Oils (this is a combination of oils put together)
  7. Peppermint Essential Oil
  8. Lemon Essential Oil
