    DIY bath bomb shower bomb

    This energising shower bomb makes mornings fun and invigorating, preparing you for the day ahead. Simply place a bomb on the floor of your shower and let the fizzy action disperse lovely scents around you.

    Bi Carb has antifungal and antiseptic properties, and is a natural deodoriser, so it can help clean your shower at the same time!

    Citric Acid provides the “fizz” in your shower bomb, which is half the fun of using one.

    Cornstarch acts as a binder and thickener, combining all the lovely-smelling ingredients together.

    Lemon has a light, tangy scent, guaranteed to gently wake you up in the morning.

    Grapefruit not only has a bright and refreshing scent with citrus undertones, but works to purify pores as it steams up towards your skin.

    Rosemary provides mental clarity, focus, and will wake you up after a good nights’ sleep.

    DIY Energising Citrus Shower Bomb



    1. In a glass bowl, mix the bi carb, citric acid, cornstarch and dried rosemary if using, then mix in the essential oils. Add the water while rapidly stirring to avoid early reaction.
    2. After this, mixing with hands and pressing the mixture together works best. The final consistency should resemble damp crumbly sand, which just holds together when squeezed. Avoid excess water.
    3. Divide mixture equally and hand roll into balls or place into moulds and press down firmly. Push down the edges.
    4. Set aside to harden at room temperature for a few hours.
    5. Remove from moulds. Store your bombs in an airtight glass jar out of sunlight.

    How To Use

    Place a shower bomb on the floor of your shower cubicle. Starting showering and enjoy the uplifting and energising aromatic fizzy experience to get your day started.

    Tip: For congestion and colds, use essential oils such as eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint for relief of symptoms.

    This recipe makes approximately 6 hand rolled bombs. Use within 6 months.
