Eucalyptus Shower Steamers
Eucalyptus is great as a decongestant, and I find it really helpful when I have sinus congestion.
Type: Bath and Body
  • 2 cups baking soda
  • 1 cup citric acid
  • 100% pure witch hazel
  • Spray bottle
  • 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil
  • Hard plastic moulds used for soap making and bath bombs
  1. Measure out half of the baking soda and citric acid into a large bowl. Mix well with your hands and add 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil.
  2. Pour witch hazel into the spray bottle and start spritzing the top of the powder lightly and quickly mix with your hands. Keep spritzing and mixing until the powder begins to hold together like wet snow. Work quickly in this stage and be careful not to over saturate the powder. If you add too much witch hazel you will see the mixture starting to fizz.
  3. Pack the mixture into a mould by filling it quickly and really pressing down to ensure it is packed tightly. Only fill one mould at a time.
  4. Flip the mould over onto a cutting board or hard surface and tap to remove the shower steamer. Allow it to dry for 24 hours and harden before using.
  5. To use, set the shower steamer on the floor of the shower just as you get in. It will fizz and dissolve as it releases the essential oils into the steam.
Please note: Eucalyptus essential oil is not safe for use on children under the age of 10, so please, let's keep this special treat for us grown ups only!
