Create Your Own Spa Getaway with Homemade Shower Bombs

December 7, 2015


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.




  • 2 cups baking soda

  • 1 cup citric acid (available at health food stores or online)

  • 2 Tbsp. water

  • 20+ drops of your favorite aromatic essential oil (see our suggestions below)




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!


Suggested essential oil additions:


  • Morning Fresh Shower Bombs: Add 20 drops of Eucalyptus Radiatato a batch for an invigorating and fresh aromatic experience.

  • Orchard Stroll Shower Bombs: For a sweet, refreshing aromatic journey, add 20 drops of Citrus Fresh to a batch.

  • Day’s End Shower Bombs: Add 20 drops of Lavender to a batch to enjoy a relaxing aromatic addition to your shower time.
