Yields: 1 dozen
INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups baking soda
1/3 cup distilled water or regular water (or more up to 1/2 cup)
10-12 drops of peppermint essential oil
DIRECTIONS
1.    Add the baking soda to a large metal or glass mixing bowl.
2.   Begin by mixing in 1/4 cup of water.  Add slightly more and stir, as needed, until the mixture resembles damp sand.

  Slowly add the water as you don’t want to add too much accidentally!

3.   Add the peppermint essential oil and mix again to distribute the oil.
4.   Transfer into the molds and press down firmly.  Insert a candy cane icing decoration into the middle of each shower steamer, pressing down gently (too firmly and it might break).
5.   Allow to harden overnight.  Gently pop each peppermint shower steamer from the mold and store in an airtight container.  For best results, use within 1 month.

HOW TO USE
  Place 1 peppermint shower melt on your shower floor, away from the stream of water where it will get wet, but not drenched. Then, breathe in deeply as the oils vaporize. Most likely they’ll outlast your shower, simply push it into the corner of your shower, and it’ll be there for next time.  Enjoy the invigorating and uplifting aroma of peppermint as it is slowly released into the shower!
Aside from just relaxing, peppermint shower bombs are great to use for colds,  stress relief,  congestion and for getting rid of headaches!

These would also make great homemade gifts, just pop them in a mason jar, tie a beautiful bow and you will make someone special very happy!

Storage

 After you have made them, store in a cool and dry place. You could place them in a glass jar, mason jar or saran wrap and they can last anywhere between 2-6 months when stored correctly. Possibly even longer if you placed them in the refrigerator.
Caution: Do not soak in the tub with steamers. Discontinue use if rash, redness or itching occurs. Consult your physician if irritation persists. Keep out of reach of children.

  1. Hello, I made a ‘steamer’ using corn starch added to the baking soda, and am hoping this one turns out better. The corn starch batch took forever to dry.

  2. These are so pretty, Kristin! I could definitely see these as a great gift for family members and besties, too! I need to make some for myself! I’ll be featuring your post at Tuesday Turn About this week! Pinned!

    1. Hi Fernie-
      I don’t see why not, they might get a little sticky in the water, so if your handing them out as gifts maybe let them know to take the candy cane off before using. Let me know how it works 🙂
