DIY Shower Steamers with Eucalyptus

These DIY shower steamers feature eucalyptus to help ease congestion and soothe sinus symptoms. Make a double or triple batch and be prepared all winter long with this shower steamer recipe! 


  • Metal or Hard Plastic Molds: bath bomb/soap molds



To Make the DIY Shower Steamer:

  • In a bowl, mix the citric acid and baking soda.
  • Add the essential oil and mix that in well using your hands.
  • Pour the witch hazel into the spray bottle and spritz some onto the top of the powder mixture.
  • Mix the witch hazel in quickly with your hands, spritz some more on top, mix again, and repeat until the mixture packs together easily. Be careful not to get it too moist - if it starts to fizz, you've added too much.
  • Scoop the mixture into the molds one at a time and pack it down tightly so that it holds together.
  • Allow them to dry for at least 24 hours before use.

To Use the Shower Steamers:

  • Pop one of these on the shower floor and run warm water as normal. This will cause the steamer to fizz and melt, releasing soothing eucalyptus into the steamy air. Inhale deeply!
