I have been wanting to make shower steamers since I first heard of them – seriously, how did I not know this was a thing?! I knew that the first thing I needed to figure out was how to make a good shower steamer base. Because then I could make them in countless aromas by using essential oils! Shower steamers for every occasion, so to speak. Using essential oils not only gives these shower steamers a great scent, but also offers physical and/or emotional support for your body! (To receive these therapeutic benefits, you must use essential oils that are completely pure and properly prepared.)

It is simple to learn how to make shower steamers. All you need is a few supplies and the following ingredients: baking soda, citric acid, witch hazel, and essential oils. You’ll begin by mixing the dry ingredients, adding in the wet, and finally pressing into molds and allowing them to dry. You choose the best shower steamer recipe for you – either by choosing your own essential oils or choosing one of the recipes at the end of this post. Now that you know the basics, here are all the details and step-by-step instructions to make you confident in how to make shower steamers!

Medium Mixing Bowl

Plastic Gloves for molding if desired

How to use shower steamers:

Using shower steamers is so easy! First, warm up your shower. When you are ready to get in, bring a shower steamer with you. Hold it under the shower for a couple of seconds to activate it, then place it in a corner of the shower that does not get direct water flow. Enjoy the aromas as you shower!
