These DIY Aromatherapy shower steamers are the perfect way to have a relaxing shower when there’s no time for a bath.
I love taking baths. But with a hectic schedule and three kids it’s not always possible. But I love to enjoy the benefits of a bath with these DIY Aromatherapy Shower Steamers. So how do they work?
I just put a shower disc on the far end of my bathtub while I’m taking a shower and let a little bit of water trickle on the disc to release the scent in the disc and voila! Shower aromatherapy.
What makes these DIY shower steamer discs so awesome is that you can mix and match the scents to customize your aromatherapy experience.
I love using Stress Away (because again three kids and a hectic schedule) but you can use eucalyptus (for a spa-like experience), lavender (to promote rest and relaxation), or even peppermint (to energize). There are so many possibilities. These are my favorite resources for getting essential oils.
I love making this homemade shower steamers because I know exactly what’s going into them. I’ve seen store-bought shower melts but found they contained artificial scents (which can actually cause respiratory issues), artificial colors (yuck!) and preservatives (aka toxic chemicals). I’m working to eliminate the toxic chemicals in my home to keep my family healthy.
How To Make DIY Aromatherapy Shower Steamers
These DIY Aromatherapy Shower Steamers are really easy to make. Just combine the ingredients into a bowl and bake at low heat for 20 minutes. I’ve got the full recipe below.
The key is the essential oils. I really love Stress Away – it’s a blend that helps to melt the worries and just daily life (aka mom life) away. So when you take a shower it’s like spa aromatherapy without having to leave your home.
And I hope you’ll love these DIY shower steamers like I do. The kids can use them too – and you can make fun shapes with different silicone molds. How cute would these molds be… for little kids, for boys, for girls.
So let’s get into how to make these DIY Aromatherapy Shower Steamers…
DIY Aromatherapy shower steamers are the perfect way to have a relaxing shower when there's no time for a bath.
Preheat the oven to 350° F (180°C).
- Spoon the paste into the silicone molds, press the mixture in, and smooth the tops off with your fingers.
- Place the pan in the oven and bake the cubes for 20 minutes at 350° F.
- Remove the tray from the oven and allow the cubes to cool completely. The tablets will continue to dry as they cool.
How To Use These DIY Shower Steamers
Place a dried DIY shower steamer disc in the shower (in the far end of the shower stall or bathtub – away from the direct water stream). You can put a few drops of water on the shower steamer disc to get the aromatherapy going, but avoid direct water contact from the shower as it will melt away too fast. Breathe in the scent of the essential oil and ENJOY!
